what to buy

there are three things i want to buy but i'm not sure which to buy first. they will all be bought at some point but i don't know what to buy first.
i have about £650

the 3 things are:

portable media player (£350)
7 string guitar (£500 - £1200 either a 1527 or a universe)
duel monitor graphics card (£200)

as far as the guitar goes i am still waitin on me jem and don't think i will buy any guitars till i get it. but i don't know weather to save for the guitaror buy one of the other things or buy both the other things. help?

(sorry if this is the wrong board but i couldn't think were else to put it.

Re: what to buy

With my addiction to guitars, I'd go for the guitar first

The 7 string.

Fashionable electronics are the worst investment known to man, i own no electronics that are worth a quarter of their value after 5 years.

Re: what to buy

Dont get the graphics card. Most graphics card have 2 outputs, usually 1 analog 1 dvi. This can be configured to allow you to have dual monitors and there is also a cheaper alternative.
Theres this product that is like a mini-box that hooks up to serveral monitors and pretends to be a big one. Then it splits the pixels up to your diffrent monitors. I forgot what it was called but I remember its only like 30 bucks.

So get the dual mon set up and the guitar!
