My Latest Addition:

Dell Latitude D620
14.1" 1440x900 Screen
1.66Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo
160GB 5400RPM Hard Drive
2GB RAM
64MB NVIDIA Quadro NVS 110M
Vista Business Edition

Compact, Light, well-built, and I love it. The 4 USB ports are a Godsend, as I'll be bringing this thing to Seattle for the summer and the ability to plug in a USB Mouse, Keyboard, and Flash Drive all at once is essential.

P182
Asus Maximus Formula
Q6600 @ 3.2Ghz (Tried 3.6Ghz... wasn't even stable at 1.5v. Pissed me off

)
TRUE 120 w/ 1000RPM Ultra Kaze
4GB RAM
8800GTS 512 MB (Once again, bad luck @ OC'ing. This thing barely went up at all -_-)
Planning a step up to 9800GX2

So far, it's ridiculously quiet in my P182. I'm switching out all the case fans to 800RPM slipstreams soon. And, despite all the low RPM fans, cooling is great. <40C idle Q6600, 60Cish load.

Asus MATX HDMI
qx6700
DIY fragbox
4gb OCZ RAM 4-4-4 timings
500gb hd
36gb raptor, vista/xp pro and soon kubuntu (hopefully)
600 watt OCZ PSU
DLink xtreme N wireless
ESI Juli@ sound card/ sometimes Razer barracuda soundcard
ASUS 8800 GTS (g92)

perhaps liquid cooled sff is in my future.

Just my opinion: The 9800gx2 is just two 8800gt, after seeing some of the first reviews it doesn't seem any amazing, disapointing in performance leap actually.

EDIT: I take my word back, the 9800GX2 seems excellent for 2560 resolution, but only worth it for people with very big screen lcds.

It seem like going to be $599 new then its way above the HD3870x2 price, which isn't far behind in performance, but price wize is much more affordable, and I would guess ATI will lower it's price again on this occasion to compete with the new 9 series, so it'll be even lower than $400. 9800's seem to be recycled stuff from the 8 series with higher clock, still using G92 chip. The 9800gtx seem a better deal though, since it's going to be about twice cheaper and I am sure it will be right up there in the performance factor.

I would rather save up for the most expensive generation 10 cards, which most likely comes out within this year also.

with the ati setup you also have the option of crossfire down the road.

The new 9 series refresh was really disappointing for me. They basically ditched the high end 768mb GTX and Ultra and just refreshed the line with the G92 tech introduced with the 8800GT. I've also heard that the 9800GTX is really just an overclocked GTS G92, so it might not be worth the $350 price tag since you can get the GTS for about $220-240 these days. I've been running an EVGA 7600GS for a while now and was looking forward to a new card with the new 9 series but so far, it has just been a dissapointment. I think I might just pick up one of the G80 GTXs or maybe the new 9600GT, which to me, is the only card in the line worth buying since it offers nearly the same performance as the GT/GTS for $50-100 less.

I had the 8800gtx for a while, now it's starting to be come very affordable. There is a factor to help choose between the 8800gts 512mb G92 and the 8800gtx G80. It seem that the 8800gts can be a couple frames rate higher for the most part, but at higher resolution, ie 1920x1200 with AA AF on, the higher memory bandwidth lends it way for the 8800gtx. They all are affordable now though.

I think the Palit 9600GT is a good deal. If I didn't already has a faster card I would buy the Palit 9600gt for these factors: hdmi and spdif outputs, much lower power consumptions and temperatures. It almost compared with the 8800gt, overlocked it should. But right now I would wait for both the 9800s to come out so all prices would settle down even more.

I think it's good for the market now that ATI is finally beginning to pull out products that compete with Nvidia. I might be owning one again, if they just improve the user interface of their drivers...
