I have a $1500 credit with a computer store and don't know what to get! I have the following figured out but can't think of anything else!

q. 2 30GB IBM 75GXP's
ATA-100 RAID Card
Zip USB 250
MS Explorer Mouse
SuperMicro Dual Xeon board
Supermicro 750A case

That leaves about $400 left over and I can't think of what to get! Anyone have any ideas on accessories or gadgets? Thanks,
Rowcroft

Suggest you change the ZIP USB 250 to the ZIP SCSI 250. I've got both and the SCSI is super fast.

Was it just me or did somebody mention hookers? If so,, GET THOSE NOW! If not,, I'd go with the monitor idea.

I should have expanded more, here is what I have now

P3 733
CUSL2
SB Live
256MB MUSHKIN
CDRW
19" Nice monitor
AIW Radeon
Antec SX-1030 case
HP 970cxi
USB scanner
Film scanner

Firewire card
10/100 NIC
13GB Maxtor

I have been through DVD, MP3 players, digital cameras and PDA's and haven't been happy yet with any of them. I'm stumped!

I've got three systems at home and was thinking the USB zip would be more flexible among the three. I'll hardly use it anyway, but need one time to time. Thanks for the suggestion on SCSI though, it is much faster-

Yep, I would recommend the Plextor CDRW 12X or 8X but in your case, 12X since you have the extra cash.

I was thinking about getting a 72x TrueX cd-rom, but the 48x I have is running great. Also, I was thinking of getting a network tool kit, but I can always use the one from work so it didn't make much sense for me to get one too. Talk about a problem I always thought I'd love to have!
