It burns x.x

….totally getting my eyes checked again. Both of my eyes have been watering, but my right eye is getting to be quite bothersome. Not only is it watering up ALL THE TIME but now it decides to burn. It’s annoying to wipe it down every few minutes.

Fortunately, this Friday I have to go to the bank to renew my CD anyway, and I was goint to transfer monies into checking to reload… so I’ll see if I can get to an optometrist afterward. Not going back to Sears Optical, I think their associated optometrist did a rush job with my current glasses since the left lens is already useless. Mother is suggesting Costco this time. I really hope they do same-day/walk-ins, I don’t mind waiting. >_>;;;

It is very, very likely that I’ll be upgrading Blastoise’s video card within the next couple of weeks.
Um… I’m running a 450W PSU here. My lazy side would like to avoid having to swap that out for a bigger one if possible, but, again, that’s the lazy option. XD I’ll just have to suck it up in terms of yanking all the power cables and such. Thankfully Blastoise is, like, the easiest computer EVER to work on (no, really… he was laughably easy to assemble compared to everyone else except Synergy, who is more or less the same exact machine save for the sound card).

Anywho… going nVidia as usual. Ideally something with at least 512mb on it; more is definitely better since I’m running dual monitors and that cuts my uisable memory in half. (And before anyone says it, I will never ever EVER go back to single monitor mode on Blastoise, I’m too spoiled by the awesomeness of two)
SO, fellow nVidia fanboys… anything in particular I should be looking at? I admit I haven’t kept up with graphics news (last I recall, nVidia was going to patch in PhysX support, and that was awhile ago). I can afford to splurge a bit if need be, especially if I end up getting a 1GB card, so don’t hold back over price unless it’s over $500.
