This got me thinking about what to drive it with. I'd been toying with the idea of maybe building a PC from scratch again like the old days. I mentioned it to a friend and who turned me on to a site I wasn't familiar with in http://www.pcpartpicker.com/ which is really really cool if you have any inclination. I ended up putting together: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/2XuSa - still hemming and hawing about the need for SSD when I have several traditional HDs sitting on a shelf unused. It would be cool to maybe dabble in some gaming again.
This somehow lead to a discussion of clicky keyboards. Of course the benchmark is the IBM Model M with Buckling Springs but I used to have a Focus 2001. Apparently people still take clicky keyboards seriously because there is an active sub-reddit dedicated to them http://www.reddit.com/r/MechanicalKeyboards/ which also proves that there is a sub-reddit for EVERYTHING!! If you're not familiar check out some YouTube videos it really does make typing a better experience.
