Personally I'd bank it until W9 comes around as W8 will be fine on the hardware I have on my Current PCs. By the time W9 comes around I'll probably need new hardware, so I'd invest it then in a new PC with W9 on it [or a new W8 PC if my current hardware isn't suitable for W8!]. My PCs are fine as they are at the moment [both quite new in fact!] and I have all the peripherals I need. :)

Ok ok :lol: ....... Well a nice big 500 GB or a 1 TB external hard drive would come in handy I reckon and a really good pair of PC speakers for my new tower would be nice ....... I reckon there would be some change out of that for a couple of spare flash drives too! :)

How about you rsvr85?? What would YOU spend it on?? :)

I don't have a desktop, but I'd like to get a LED Monitor Flat screen with HDMI that can be hooked up to my laptop. I used it on a 42" LED TV wow that was amazing...

I'd probably buy a GTX480 and cough up the $100 difference :)

1. 500 GB HDD(US$ 43)
2. 2x2 GB DDR3 RAM(US$ 110)
3. Intel C2Quad Processor(US$ 175).

I'll still have enough money to buy an external 500 GB hard drive.
