    So, I just got a $100 gift card to walmart, and have no idea what to get.

    Help?

    Link to walmart's online store.

    I was thinking maybe a new CPU cooler. Not quite sure at the moment.

    Screw that, but thanks for being a jerk in a perfectly harmless thread.

    ebay it for $99, set the shipping at $2. make yourself a profit. (yes, people are stupid enough to pay $101 for a $100 gift card.)

    edit- also found this. so you can support your 50lb. CPU. :rolleyes:

    lol:laugh:, i found what he said to be pretty funny really, a response like that was almost expected, i was about to chime in with ''a $hit load of socks''.:roll:

    Walmart is the last place i would look in terms of computer parts. Maybe a cheap printer or a quality USB flash drive would be good to peek at in Walmart if you don't already have those, but anything else that's computer hardware related is tough to come by at a store like Walmart.

    get a sense of humor.

    figure out what you need, prioritize, and act accordingly?

    You have to look.

    I thought maybe about the H50... But I'm still quite unsure about water cooling in any form in my rig.

    DO IT!

    There isn't any real issues to have. I have had like 4 of these, one of which developed an issue, but it had nothing to do with leaks.

    H50 it is then. Oh, and I'll toss in a $10 Antec fan to wrap it all up. :D

    Go to the counter and purchase a $100 visa gift card with your wal-mart gift card. At least you used to be able to do this.

    Too late, already ordered my H50, I've been wanting a new CPU cooler anyways. (Plus then I can give my hyper 212+ to my GF to replace her aging Zalman CNPS 9500A)

    Our Walmart doesn't have a gas station. Or did you mean compressed air?

    If you add a bit of money, buy a decent petrol remote control car.

    EDIT: nvm seems you bought a h50.

    There actually not that lame. There extremely fun. I spent 560$ Aus on mine. It has two gears. Top speed of 100km/ph. Pretty fun. I beat half the people in my street, even when they WANT to race me. There actually a good and great fun. Good for showing off, who wouldn't be caught by a remote control car which runs on nitro methane?!

    I already made my purchase. I got a Corsair H50 for my rig and a Antec tri-cool fan for my GF's rig.

    I'd rather spend money on my PC or my real car. :laugh:
