    Thanks man! I got a friend who works there in the geek squad tech department and he's also 16 and he doesn't know squat compared to me :laugh: Thats the position their hiring for also so hopefully i get it! I honestly don't know how he is working on there. He said updating my gpu drivers will kill my cards and that you can run 16gb of ram on a 1366 thinking it's dual channel. He didn't even know triple channel existed :slap:

    Defnitely! I learned everything over at OCN. I started getting into computers like march of this year built my first rig, wasn't very good sold my comp 2 months later then after summer i just had to get a comp again!

    OCN was the easiest forum for me to find and it's a very large forum so their is more voices/opinions. I like TPU much better though after learning everything i have from OCN as the people are much more helpful here and it's a much friendlier community. You don't all the dick heads here that you do at OCN that think they know everything and act like your a idiot for a question..

    OCN is not bad at all, I am a member there too and I got a few posts as well. So I've been around that place, but TPU feels like home bro, no other forum has felt like that at all.

    Not saying this will make "ALL" the difference, but it'll sure help.

    -The 5870 only crunched temporarily due to heat. But what I'll do is leave it on as long as I'm not home. If I'm not home, the heat won't bother :)
    -The 3rd rig I finally got Windows installed on it after all the issues I had. So, when I get home today from work I'll install the drivers and fire it up, counting on everything going good.

    The 5870 should put out about 1.5-2k PPD like this and the GTS 250 in the 3rd rig full time should do I assume like 5-6kppd. So Let's see if we get back on the threats list. :toast:

    Oh, people have been helping you. I was wondering how you managed that! lol.

    I was suppose to have a GTX260 arrive today :(

    Hopefully i can sell my 8800GTS's, GTX260 and get a GTX460 in a trade, then maybe a 2nd.
