Can't wait until I can finally play Adventure Pack...and DW20 xD, although, I might have to temp install 64-bit Ubuntu, otherwise I won't be able to allocate enough RAM (on 32-bit Win 7)?

So...good new...and bad news...

Good news: I has the RAM...and everything else.
Bad news (Part 1): They are sitting in my room collecting dust because...
Bad news (Part 2): My dad has no idea when we will be able to go and get the monitors and the motherboard...

In-between news: I want to get some case lighting...I was thinking purple...any advice? :-D
