    Who else besides me like to pay for a video card and its high in price, but you can't wait for a sale to happen and you just rush out and grab it haha

    I have my eye on my last pci card which i plan to get and its 105 dollars , i am so temp to buy it right now, i really can't control myself :laugh: :cry:, i might end up buying it tonight or sometime tomorrow or sun. :(
    i am going to buy it tho, just waiting for a sale to happen, but fu** i really want it.

    I do not usually spend money on over priced products , did it ones because i forced by the "Last fast AGP VGA " song .
    Spend 340EUR for one Nvidia 6800GT , but my patience payed out , the HD3850 has triple power , and costs three times less . :)

    My second computer which i will buy when i find one i want has nothing to do with the subject at all. I was just asking a question, thats all.

    but yea small boost , middle boost, i am a sucker for buying high price cards haha :( I have 600 bucks to spend on whatever i want right now, i just wanted to get done with buying one last pci card, but its 100 bucks man.

    Thats cool. I have patience, but for video cards no. If i am in the store, and i see something i want and i have the cash on me and there is no sale in sight, i will buy it fast. i hate waiting around for stuff.

    u2konline are you really wanting people to find out your location? Is that a challenge? Would you be upset if I told you I know? I wont post if you don't want.

    Let's not get into Social Studies but this is not a place to give away personal info. BTW, 1degree of longitude/latitude is too big.

    Exactly. WHy ask for someone to post this. I didnt even have to ask. But the fact that he wanted someone to find him was just a challenge I couldnt pass up.

    This thread is not helpful or useful in any way and in fact it's turning out to be quite the opposite. :shadedshu
