Recovering from computer woes redux

So, I broke down and bought a new video card tonight. It's a Diamond Stealth S120 w/ 128 mb. It's not top of the line, but it is DX9 capable and I got it for 60 bucks. The other bonus is that it came with a complete version of the cyberpunk conspiracy game Deus Ex: Invisible War which has taken away the past 2.5 hours of my life.

So, sure, I spent about 68 bucks, tax included, that I really didn't have, but it's working out in the long run. Next computer purchases will need to be a new monitor, a new hard drive, and a DVD burner.

Update (May 27, 10pm): Scratch the monitor. Got a used, but much more new than the one it's replacing, 17" Dell M770 CRT (makes it sound like a tank) off a friend.
