Latest electronics purchases

Just got me a Hauppauge WinTV USB Stick! It's sooooooooooooo much less fuss than a video capture card. ^_^

Bought myself a new Sony Bravia TV. I finally have money, so I wanted to do a bit of upgrading. My own Xbox 360 is next on the list.

What are going to be the specs on this desktop you are building?

I didn't want to spend too much, as I plan on just upgrading later, but I pieced together a build that'll be good for a year until I upgrade it.

ANTEC case
Corsair 800W power supply
Phenom II X6 2.8ghz
4gb DDR3 RAM
ATI HD 5770
60gb SSD drive (OS)
1TB drive

I'd say in a year I'll upgrade the RAM and video card.

The last thing I ever got myself was a DSlite, and that was back in 2008.

If this counts, I actually got a DVD player a couple of weeks ago, to replace the one I had that eventually stopped working after eight years of use. The replacement I got is also the same model.

I, once again, upgraded my TV situation, it's becoming a terrible and extremely expensive habit. Got a 60" Sharp Aquos Quattron for the living room, brought the 52" Toshiba into the spare room/soon to be game room, took the 47" Samsung into the bedroom and took the 37" Dell monitor I was using as a TV in the bedroom into the spare room and hooked it up as a computer monitor.

Sh*t be bangin' on that front. I also got a new Sony SS setup, but I haven't had the time to configure it properly yet. Still shakes the picture frames on the walls, though.

I have been wanting to get some good speakers. How are the SS's? Other than it shaking the walls.

Honestly? Something with that kind of power is only necessary if you're able to crank it, but it's still awesome at lower levels, especially with the optional rear and side speakers.

Interesting. I have been needing a new setup, these crappy RCA surrounds I have is just not cutting it. Not sure the model as I got it at a reduced price and wasn't in original boxes. But the rear and side speakers don't really provide the surround experience I feel it should. Thanks for the information.

Just got a PS3! The main reason I got one is because I am a hardcore Sonic The Hedgehog fan and they are releasing the new game on that console. I think it will be worth it though!

No idea. Hasn't come in yet. Bought pretty much entirely for access to the currently free download of GBA's Zelda Four Swords. It's the only Zelda game I've never been able to get to. Can't wait...

I bought for mother's day that Velvet Smooth for my mother.


Had no idea it was battery operated, so I guess it fits here.

I bought a Nintendo 3DS over the Summer.

I'd also like to know what some people think of the Apple watch.
