    To Charper2013:

    Hope the i7 goes online soon! That would be a nice holiday gift to us all here in TPU and to all cancer patients who needs the "posssible cure" from the crunching that we're doing! Hope to see the i7 rig soon dude!:D And a Happy New Year to you too and your family!:)

    there are indoor fields en masse?:laugh: some even without paint, they use reusable soft rubber balls.... youre livin in america man! even i can find such a place, even tho there are 10 times less in Germany... because we have the harshest weapon law in the world. you ever knew?

    if you love the adrenalin push of a real fight, without the chance to catch a bullet, then one of these 2, or even both, might fit you well.its a little like a healthy drug^^
    me for example, likes to do both, but i dont game in the woods. i hate to stumble over fallen trees, when trying to get a good aim at my target:eek:

    EDIT: dont talk about wasting money, i bought tuning smallparts for 80 euro 2 days ago :D
    3 helical gears,a piston, a pistonhead, and a springguide with ball bearing. damn expensive, if you ask me :eek:

    Ok guys, is there any interest in a complete 939 set-up? I have a DFI Infinity NF4 SLI, A64 4000, 2x512 Corsair Pro Series (the ones with the lights on them), Ultra 500w modular PSU, 7300GT for video, WD 40gb ide hard drive, and a big typhoon with an antec 2000rpm fan for cooling. Everything but a case. I can put a fresh install of XP pro 32, or load the RC1 of windows 7 on it.

    This isn't a very power efficient cruncher, but makes a great rig for a kid for internet and school work. I was running GTX 260 folding with this for a quite a while, and the cpu used to do 2.7, but it has just been at stock with this board.

    Also, the board was used for some dice runs and still has some of the insullation glued on it. Doesn't effect it in any way, still works just fine, but the onboard sound has issues, so I will include an old sound card as well.

    $50 shipped is all I need. I would really like to see this go to someone on the team who has kids and can't really afford a rig for them. I'll try and get some pics up tomorrow.

    I come here in need of 2 heatsinks
    I need a heatsink for the E1500(S775) the stock one just isn't cutting it
    Also need on the for 5kBE(AM2) i had to lower the clocks because it was overheating and giving BSOD. I am running a Stock cooler from a Phenom (one with heatpipes) but that isn't getting the job done...
    Need them as cheap as possible

    I might have a 2GB stick of DDR2, if I can find it I'll send it your way (free). No guarantees though, I last saw it in June so it may have gone missing.
