    A lady friend of mine told me she wanted something simple for Valentine's Day.

    I think this is.

    1 Memorex BD-RE, and a 10-pack of Verbatim BD-Rs from OfficeMax.
    Hey, chances are, what I want to make into an optical drive will probably well surpass the 4.7/8.5GB threshold of a DVD. :)

    Slowly picking up parts for a new PC build later this year:

    1 x LG Black Blu-ray Drive SATA Model UH12NS30 - OEM
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16827136268
    1 x ASUS PCE-N15 PCI Express 300/300Mbps Transfer/Receive Rate Wireless Adapter
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833320074
    1 x Pioneer Black Blu-ray Burner SATA BDR-2209
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16827129076
    1 x Microsoft Windows 8.1 Pro - 64-bit - OEM
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16832416778
    1 x Hauppauge 1213 WinTV-HVR-2250 Media Center Kit Dual TV Tuner
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16815116036

    As I said, I'm taking it slow and small for now, then as we learn what new GPUs and CPUs are on the horizon, I'll certainly do my best to take a leap into those when they become available, and any new motherboards.

    EDIT: I know, why two BD drives? Well, that way if I'm recording one TV show from the Hauppauge onto one, I can be watching a Blu-ray movie, or playing a game off the other.

    ASUS VG278HE Black 27" 2ms (GTG) HDMI Widescreen LED Backlight LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 50,000,000:1 Built-in Speakers 3D ready, Height, Swivel adjustable

    ...and yes, I DO have an nVidia 3D Vision 2 kit, thank you. I've used it with a 32" 3DTV, but felt a dedicated 3D monitor is much better to use. Newegg keeps selling out of the 24" version, so I had to settle for the larger size (and who wouldn't want a larger size monitor, anyway).

    Ah now I see the edit. Let me know how that TV Tuner works. I want to make a HTPC myself one day.

    Yep. Hoping to make it a basement rec room Gaming HTPC. I'm currently on my old build, which I just have as a bedroom HTPC with an older TV Tuner and hardware...because with hardware that I've had since Windows 7's launch, I doubt that would certainly fair well with today's gaming standards, that's for sure. :)

    I have Pro 10 atm but there's some new features I really wanted to use in 13, so I bought the upgrade because it was half off of the already discounted price and I ended paying less than 160$ for it vs the 299/599 it usually is.

    Decided to pull the trigger on the storage and boot drives for the rig I'm putting together. Probably might wait until late March/early April to get the BIG TICKET components for my build (MSI Gaming GTX970, and the MSI Gaming 7 Mobo, i7 4790K, RAM, etc...)

    I bought the Road, the book that is. And Moon, a movie.

    Heard the book was better than the movie. Having seen the movie, I'd probably agree.

    Moon however, was amazing.

    I keep forgetting to post what I've been buying here.

    Today I bought The Talos Principle, which is the newest game from Croteam (Serious Sam devs). I got it after playing the demo, which was really pretty f*kin cool. I've only played a little but I think I'm going to really like it.

    So they say. I'm halfway, and it's an excellent read. I feel the world, how these people move about/how they feel in the deepest detail. A mesmerising beauty, bathed in the darkness and desperation yet despite that I find it not to be crushing nor depressing. His play on words (?) really hypnotiszs you.
    As for the movie, I liked it and think that Vigo mortenssen did a great job. I really don't want to compare the movie to the book. Not in this case I suppose.

    Moon has always been one of my favourites.
