get a BR pull or if not since you have a MLC, go for some armor or a stormtrooper set if you like that stuff. Or you can buy some of the pieces you dont have to go to your suit. But me...i would use it on a finished BR or Finished MLC

If you'd like, I'll hold on to the money for you and keep it all nice and warm! heheh, j/k.
You should open an account and do some hardcore daytrading - turn that $500 into some real money! heheh..

<------------ I'm 16 and my parent wont let me do that stuff... let alone get a debit card, it blows lol.

Also, let me clarify a few things...

The laptop has a built in Intel Graphics card (ugh)

I already have a $300.00 Digital camera: http://reviews.cnet.com/digital-cameras/ca...l?tag=pdtl-list

Im really lobbying for the Intous, Its really great for art and photo edited (of which i do atleast 3 hours of a day) It comes with a mouse too.

Also, I already have an MLC helmet, so the only other helmet im going to get (if at all) is a permientation one. (of which i havent found any that im satified in spending a lot of money on)

We'll Sean, If i decide for myself, id probably get the Wacom Intous, but then again, id like the input from the people here first.

I did put a "Save it" button on there Sean, but no one seems to think thats a good idea, lol.

I'll go vote then. ;)


EDIT*** I see the problem with that, your poll won't allow me to vote for that option. Anyhow, my advice is obvious. :rolleyes

Divine intervention?

I totally don't know but it could account for your lack of votes.

Try going back to your first post and doing an edit to check on the poll again. If you don't want to change anything you can just back out without saving.

I think by BR he meant BlueRealm... that's how I saw it anyway.

if you want a GeForce 8800GTS 640MB Video Card that means you have a good pc, so you dont need an average laptop and at the same time you want a Intel Core 2 Quad 2.4GHz Processor, i guess you will need both if you are building a good desktop.
if thats what you are doing wait till end of February the new gforce 9800 is coming out so dont waste money now.
also that canon looks very seductive!

I voted for saving it.

Hang onto it and if/when some item pops up for sale that you really want or is super nice/hard to get, you can jump on it. You never know when some awsome deal or prop will fall into your lap and its nice to have some coin laying around for that.


Plus in the it is good training for the future when you have a girlfriend/wife that gets anoyed when you drop a few hundred on a helmet. It pays to have a stash
