Pre-ordered Far Cry 3 for PC. Steam has it for $50 right now and the pre-order gives you some extra singleplayer stuff.

A new webcam for my PC, the Logitech C615. Not bad so far.

Been wanting to also get the Logitech TouchPad, since it does seem to make it easier to use Windows 8, but I'm not sure if it's worth it for now.

Just ordered a CPU/motherboard combo from Newegg, the Intel Core i5 3570K along with the ASUS P8Z77-V. Should hopefully be a nice upgrade.

Only colorways available in the store were all black that looks dull and one with blue and green that looks like snot so I picked that one because it has the Sixers' colors only to realize later on that it looks like a Spider-Man shoe making me look like a kid by wearing it. I still like the shoe.

Was only supposed to get The Dark Knight Rises 2-Disc DVD boxset when I saw this baby peeking from behind. This contains the three movies + their respective special features discs, and an "Art and Making of The Dark Knight Trilogy" mini-book.

Downloaded it and deleted it after watching.

I'm still waiting to receive my new Asus motherboard after I RMA'ed the first one, but in the meantime I ordered an OCZ Vertex 4 256MB Solid State Drive (on sale on Amazon right now, $70 cheaper). Should make a nice difference when I can finally reassemble the whole thing.

Also bought a Samsung speaker to go with the TV in my man cave.

For the price difference and the overall need for performance, that didn't seem like it was worth it. Even my 560Ti didn't really have any issue at all, but there's certainly a noticeable boost with that new one.

HP desktop, lg monitor, and a new desk?

What are the specs on the desktop?

The desk looks nice. I still have a desk with a slide out keyboard tray, and no matching surface for the mouse.

Yep. I was going to get a 20" HP monitor, but I got this 23" LG Full HD one for only a little bit more money.

I don't really know that much about the insides of computers, but here we go:

CPU: Intel Core i5-3330 3.00 GHz
HD: 1TB (I've got a 1TB external HD as well)
RAM: 6GB
OS: Microsoft Windows 8
VIDEO: NVIDIA GT 620M 1GB Video Card

Basically it's just for everyday. My laptop had been overheating a lot lately, so I figured it was time to upgrade after 5 years. :wink:

I was intrigued by this mouse, having Windows 8 and all...

But it really didn't fit my primary use of a mouse, which is gaming (the touch surface is much less accurate that the scrolling wheel, and I can't get used to a middle button in lieu of a side button anymore), so I went to exchange it for this solar-powered wireless Logitech keyboard, which is pretty slick:

This is the keyboard I bought with my new computer at X-Mas time. I love it. Very sleek, easy to use, zero maintenance for changing batteries. If they get a mouse that does the same, I'm all in.

I almost bought an nvidia geforce gtx titan yesterday. Thankfully, they were all out of stock. Would have been a waste.

Since I'm here, I bought a 2013 Honda Accord lx-s last month.
