I believe there are two basic things humans enjoy doing; one is giving and the other is being acknowledged. The StackExchange paradigm certainly makes it easy for anyone to have both of those.

Previous to my curren router I used a WRT-54G with DD-WRT. It worked fairly well for about 3 years. I had problems peaking out my 12mb while using QoS, and got tired of having to reset it every week. I like the DD-WRT for all of its abilities, but I decided that spending time figuring out a router isn't how I want to spend my time. So for the price, performance, concurrency and FULL firewall features, I don't think you can get much better then a Sonicwall TZ 100 for $250 (~$300 w/wireless). Sure it's not open source, but allowing 6,000 concurrent users and up to 100mb internet connections, I seriously doubt I'll have any internet issues as connection speeds increase over the next 5 years or so. With perfect QoS and full NAT/PAT it just blows anything cheaper than it out of the water. Jeff have fun with DD-WRT, I know I did.. well for a while.

Mono price has some fantastic prices for cables. ~13 bucks for a DisplayPort to DVI? I"m not sure about resolution, but I doubt I'd need to pay $30 for a cable (http://bit.ly/Fkx1O). And Eyefinity really means 3-6 (so far) on a single card. Sure 6 is kinda crazy, but if you need it, its available (http://bit.ly/a2jh1I).
