    Yep, AFAIK it's a british thing, I'll find an origin for it at some point.

    I have been so wanting to respond to this thread, but it seems whenever I speak my mind I end up with infractions, but I really do not care anymore.
    I see threads that are not getting any responses at all because all the geeks are wasting time and resources in this 6 pages of nonsense. We have given him a recommendation that he should build months ago. What makes you guys think we can change him now?

    The fact that he is arguing that PCI video card is still competitive is enough to signify that we are dealing with a lost cause. Fellow geeks, just ignore him, let him buy another second hand "gateway" Pentium 2, in the mean time I'm helping the guys that really need help and listen to my advice in the threads with no replies.

    is this guy the best troll over or what? he feeds on peoples compassion and disgust for junky hardware, he seems to be completely unintentional too, i think im in love

    this guy has been getting really great offers, i bet if you offered him a 260 core216 for 100 bux he wouldn't take it tho...

    Darren: this thread is begging for infractions thats why :?

    1 Your Prebuild dell just caught on fire:)
    2 You don't have to build it yourself just buy Xazaz's pc and as said before nearly everyone here builds pc's so why would you say I don't wanna build pc's on a forum where nearly everyone does it.:confused:
    3 What are you talking about, and you were using a bottlenecked P3 system with 512mb of ram and your suprised of the boost you get from components twice as fast at least,:eek:wow thats a real surprise isn't it.
    4 There no point
    5 Have fun wasting money then

    I think I was one step ahead of you guys, I could smell the troll a mile away back in yearly 2009. But all I got was an infractions and abuse for spotting it and bringing it to light.

    Edit:

    I also exposed him as a troll here, this was the post that got me my infraction


    http://forums.techpowerup.com/showpost.php?p=1137663&postcount=54

    ....and a little warning here.

    http://forums.techpowerup.com/showpost.php?p=1137663&postcount=54

    The moral of this post is this u2konline person is full of nonsense, I find it funny that we pay him so much attention then we get "first time" posters who asks a question and it often goes ignored!

    he probbly plays flash games online and maby starcraft :/

    as to prebuilts, not all are "bad" for their price, but u need at least 500 to get a good deal on one, a friend of mine was about to built a basic game rig from scratch but got a great offer on a gateway quadcore(intel) rig, he got the rig and stuck gskill PI 800 4-4-4-12 ram kit and a 9600gt in it and its perfect for his level of gaming(he plays at mid range settings on a mid size lcd)

    this guys just trolling apparently.........still think that with 350 a netbook would probbly be the best move, least that way ur getting decent quility and something portable.

    to be serious about gaming and buying pre-fab (except GPU) you need at least 1000$... but nvm that... let's just stop wasting time here

    let the man enjoy his pc

    he belong to the 50% of buyers who don't care and don't waist time with building one

    just imagine what happen when everyone build his pc.. all "great mass manufacturer" will lose their jobs and we don't want this no? or we want? hmm.... i can't decide...:roll:

    I wouldn't say ignore this thread guys, but I offered u2kOnline a free pentium D rig and he denied it. I was going to pay shipping and all. He either is lying about his hardware, or just loves his p3 that much.

    Which of the threads he started was that in?
    He's having hardware thrown at him and is refusing it, I'm sorry but he must have fallen off his bike as a kid, that'd explain his love of smallville too.
