yep, volume leveling, whatever monicker it goes by really is essential for certain types of videos and... well... little more than a pain in the ass for others, i can't tell you how much i annoy myself when i forgot to turn it off for watching movies on the comp.

last thing i bought.... pack of cigs, yeah boring i know, still floundering on that extra 6gb of ram.
hell, i could actually use a case upgrade fairly badly too, i'm tempted to get this antec lanboy air case but it's not a screwless designed case which is a total no brainer in this day and age and honestly it seems near perfect and fits a ton of fans, even ones that unlike my cooler master HAF case i can find replacements for (stupid gigantic oddball sizes) so i'm pretty indecisive, screwless design is literally a must for me anything else seems like a downgrade, but then again as long as i stick with the HAF once a fan dies i literally can't replace it, i've looked for their size everywhere i can think of.

I hate everyone, so you don't have to.
