Eh? Do I want something?

So, being as young as I am (16.99, halfway through Freshman year of College, halfway through Junior year of High School), I still have parents who like to give my birthday presents.
But, to be honest, even though I've never had a job, I've been able to do well for myself through flipping from GameStop to Amazon and vice-versa, *(sometimes mixing in establishments such as EAStore.com, GameFly, Hollywood Video, BBV and others when deals are found.)
I've been able to upgrade to a decently powerful ($650-ish) gaming computer, a PlayStation 3, a 24" monitor and around $900 in the bank and a decent chunk of Amazon credit by flipping. And various small-purchases. (Started with $200 around August of last year.)
It is now that I come to an impasse:
I can afford what I want entertainment-wise If I want something. So I don't really want them to spend alot for my birthday or for Christmas.
What should I ask for? I'm thinking about just asking for a few months of Netflix or GameFly... (Preferably the former, since I've heard horror stories about the latter in terms of shipping times and queue throttling.)
I could ask for a small amount of money, but that just feels too superficial and in a sense, greedy.
I'd be happy without anything, but my basic assumption is that me getting a gift and being ecstatic about it would mean alot more to them than telling them that I don't want anything.
1) What should I ask for for my birthday?
2) Suggestions (and associated current deals) are welcome (PS3/PC Games, Books, Movies etc.)
3) When did you reach this point in your life? Did you ever?
