    Maybe its just me, but I'm tired of reading how 90% of the threads in the graphics cards sections are about some 1 post dumbass broke his card flashing a gtx460 with 8800gt bios or some ridiculous thing...

    A simple bio subforum to go along with ATI/Nvidia would help free up those sections for some more interesting and less computer illiterate discussions.

    And, an A/V Sub-Forum for the "What is the best A/V Software?" threads.:)

    Fixed to be gender neutral...;)

    Angry or not, I think you're right.

    Helping out newbies is one of the things that this place is all about, as we all have to start somewhere and is quite satisfying.

    The clueless are another matter altogether, however and I can usually spot them quite easily. I deal with people like this all the time at work; they're a royal pain in the ass and always waste my time.

    The clueless come on here and make useless posts that just lead everyone round in circles wasting all our time and end up not listening and doing what the experienced members are telling them. When I spot someone like this, I no longer bother helping out any more. It's just not worth the stress.
    95Viper says thanks.

    So you want us to wrangle them all together in a new section so they are easier to ignore?
    qubit, 95Viper and Maban say thanks.

    Doesn't that seem a little counter productive to what TPU is known for already?

    Aren't we hear to spread knowledge and help n00bs? If they don't listen, move on. I don't really see why we need to add a section for this reasoning.
