    I was really asking why are they so hard to removed? They seem to be melted on , last night i had to rip one off to be able to use my 2400HD or 8400gs. I plan to rip the other 3 off later today hahaha. I don't remember my old rig plates being that hard to remove, i think they slide off, but on this rig, it seems like you have to saw them off or something.

    Thats not going to happen, unless i can somehow scan this rig?
    I can scan the BOX for you? if you want.
    I don't have a camera, too cheap to buy one i guess :D
    When i buy a camera, i will be sure to take a photo of my old p3 and this new rig.

    Here is the info again:

    How long did it take you to save up for this rig? And you planning to upgrade the parts when you can?

    Just wondering because there's been alot of price cuts lately, you could get alot of upgrades with just 200 USD.
    And sorry I really haven't been following your threads but this one, what happened to your other computer?? :S

    DUDE! remember when we were recommending Xazax comp? well I believe it is still available, and for 220$ at that (without 8400gs or HD)... You could've built your own comp for 300$ too! 720BE + mobo + ram = less than 300$! The freaking tri-core that clocks in the 3.x range! the one that can potentially have a 4th core!! Why oh why do you rub the waste of money you do in our faces? it hurts :( and we try to take care of you like a mother takes care of her child... we give you great advice... and you do this to us? YOU HAVE NO HEART!

    P.S: why no more clark kent in your profile pic?

    I didn't save up for this rig, i was just hesitating and trying to find the right one, thats all.
    I only plan to add another dvd drive, and a pcie card, and a sound card , thats it.

    Its put away now. Plan to get rid of it, well to a thrift store. " RIP to my P3 " My pci cards i plan to save for backup.

    Oh its coming soon :rockout:

    Why did you pick the single AMD over the dual Intel?

    Because the guy said instead of a 30 day warranty, its 2 weeks now and even tho he drop the price to 150, it was used and dusty and he also told me all of his rigs are custom built, so that just kill the deal right there. My decision to buy this amd rig was the best one, this computer is amazing :)
    I never been a fan of AMD, but i like both intel and amd now, a tie IMO.

    PEACE

    That he buys an very old and bad processor instead of say, a 720BE + mobo + RAM?

    Nah, we couldn't, we are too smart to even THINK it is possible to waste 300$ on shit... uhh I mean a... that box with some bunch of metal in it

    Now u2k, you respond to my PS but not my actual post? o_O DUDE
    You know that with the tri-core, you couldve gotten like 2000000000000x the performance than... that piece of crap you bought for 300$? Why didn't you at least buy Xazax comp? Hell, If you can still return that... I would happily buy a freaking 720BE + mobo + RAM and take a flight to wherever you are and build you that comp! You do know that for 500$ you can actually get a comp that you can play TODAYS GAMES! Your THING (sry impossible to call it a rig) can MAYBE play flash games... I hope you realise your mistake before it is too late... I hope you realise ALL your mistakes (including posting these HURTFUL threads...)

    +1 to that, seriously why buy 2 POS cards instead of 1 good one? It's not like you can swap them around whenever you wanna play a different game.

    If you read above a bit, you would of notice i said i am not buying anymore PCI cards. I am buying a new pcie card next month, which one, i am not really sure at the moment.

    Anyways, its funny after all these bad comments about my computer, i have no problems with it, games are working fine, speed is great, video is fine etc. I know people strive for the best, but when it comes to material things, i don't. I buy whatever i want to buy, and this buy is great :rockout:

    I also do not care about getting 60-or higher in games, Jericho at 1280x1024 at high settings runs at 17-29fps and thats perfect to me. It moves a little fast which seems silly and this is at 20 frames. So if i got 40-60, ewwwww

    does that mean you don't like seeing high FPS? rather you'd like to see below 30? well it's up to you.

    Well to be honest I don't think his processor would be too bad once I got it in my rig and clocked it to 3GHz+. But of course he will never buy a custom pc or overclock for that matter so it is kinda slow at 2.6. However, the stock E5200 is much faster than the A64 could ever be, overclocked or not

    You got to understand u2k.... DON'T POST HERE IF IT'S TO SAY : "I'M PROUD TO WASTE 300$!!!! I'M PROUD TO BE STUPID AND GET SOMETHING THAT SUCKS INSTEAD OF SOMETHING THAT OWNS! I'M PROUD OF BUYING WHAT I WANT AND DO WHATEVER THE TPU MEMBERS SAID NOT TO DO!"

    cause then we will start saying how stupid your decision was... you waste our time... you waste our energy... you waste our words... YOU HAVE NO HEART!

    haha o sh1t I love the "YOU HAVE NO HEART!" ending :roll:

    seriously, he creates a thread for us to help him and he doesn't even listen to whatever is good for him everytime he creates a thread the end of it is still his own decision so why bother asking for help/advice?. Well it's his PC and he is happy with it.
