    First my processor died on me, now my PS is acting up and rather than risk my entire system on it, I went ahead and bought a Mushkin 550W. Anyone else having horrible problems?

    I've been having problems hopelessly spending my money to squeeze out as much juice as I can from my s939 system untill I buy a full blown, all out system when the 45nm Intel, or possibly new AMD stuff (if that ever happens) is released. Anyways, I just dropped $115 bucks more on an Opteron 170.:D

    If you like retarded loud music, hook your computer up to a proper reciever and speakers. No computer speakers can match a true Home Theatre setup.

    Hehe, I had some Bose Acoustimass 10 5.1 speakers hooked up to a Harman Kardon 400W amp. That is stupidly loud.

    Now if you want retardly loud, I had an unknown power amp, that was rediculous. I had 4 tower speakers that could take 200W each, at 1/4 volume, my windows were shaking and I could BARELY stand it. My speakers were topped out.

    Oh, and by the way. This thread title gave me a laugh. Reread it for yourself.

    My thoughts were, "Wait, his computer is doing WHAT, to him?!?!?!?!?"
