    You already have the benefit of my amazingly insightful advice and tutelage. That's my half, you have to cover the money.

    Look at youtube, look at myspace. All started by a normal person with no cash flow.

    You could do it, just have your head in the game.

    I think its a good idea Palit_Guy to allow us to know what "sell" is going on. A lot of people prefer Tigerdirect over Newegg. Me, I really like Newegg yet have bought from Tigerdirect when it was just that.

    Well this is awkward. I noticed a little while ago the post count in here was getting kind of high. It's actually the most posted in thread in the video card section and #2 on views (long way to go for #1).

    So I thought maybe I'd give away something to the poster of the 500th comment. Then I forgot all about it. Now I remember it. So I look back to see who it was. Damnation. Yep, it was me. I was also 499.

    But we can find a winner with #501. But #501 isn't #500. What to do?

    So I have a 9600GT Sonic here. Should I keep it for being the 500th poster or send it to GJSNeptune for being #501?

    I'd say he could use the upgrade from his Sapphire Radeon x1950 Pro 256 PCI-E.

    I'd say go with 501, he is considered the 500th person to reply. So in all he is the 500th replier. GJS your a lucky man!

    In being technical, he is the 501st post but not the 500th person to reply. This thread could have been construed throughout with only 3-4 people posting. Sorry for bursting your bubble Palit_Guy but ... I think GJS would appreciate it. LOL :D

    Sorry guys, I had to mess with your minds.

    EDIT: In other words, Congrats GJS!

    Nice GJS! I am just hoping I can gather up enough money for just the basic 9600GT! As I will be upgrading from an x1950xtx which is better than a Pro by a lil' bit! It'll be enuf to get me by until I can!

    Very cool Palit_Guy! It's nice to see things like this done!

    Oh yeah it would be nice to have that baby in your system!
    It's things like this that make me want a person that believes in the product that I have! I'll be getting Palit components from now on!

    Hehe yeah, I can't wait to have one in my rig! It'll help some of these newer games look a little bit better and run smoother on my 19" widescreen for sure! I've wanted to try Palit for a while...I figure since I was planning on a 9600GT anyways, and how much good I've heard about em' to give it a go...but the money deal sucks at this point...too many bills lol! Too bad my luck didn't work on this one! LoL! GJS rightfully deserves it and I can't wait till he finds out!

    On a good note, when I bought my $600 tool cart from Snap-On for work a couple months ago I won a Snap-On Beer Cooler/Cart...it's way cool! Worth about $250-300...but I can't part with it...I have so many drunken miles to put on it yet, but it's also Serial# 1 too! Can't say I am dissapointed at all!

    :toast:

    I suppose you're right if you count it that way. Good enough for me. Besides, I'm already running three 8800GTXs so I'm not sure what I would do with the 9600.

    PM me your shipping info GJS and I'll send you one out. Wow. I hope he sees this in time. I canceled a giveaway once in the PDXLAN forums because they guy wouldn't respond. Someone finally told him and he was soooooo mad.
     
    GJSNeptune says thanks.

    Yeah, GJS deserves it! Been trying to get a card for all this time! Even if I was post 500 I'd give it to him!

    Oh, the Snap-On Truck! All ways has the goods! It comes around my brother-in-laws shop on Wednesday. Also Mac comes on Thursday. I love being around his shop on those days, You get some pretty good deals! To bad you have to pay up on any bills with them that day also! :cry:

    No cash flow, but I bet they had a whole bunch of money put into the equipment. I wouldn't need as much server performance, but I would need money to start giving out the rebates. I could take a cut of it, but I doubt retailers would send me that money beforehand. Eventually I'd have enough.

    The idea you have man is pretty good one. It's just going to take some time to get it off the ground! But you have the base of it!

    Thanks! I can't wait. It's totally redeemed this awful day. I woke up at the exact time I was supposed to be at work. Then I get to work and I left my parking lights on. Then my girlfriend messaged me from work shortly after she got there to say her boss had already ripped her about a few things (not because she's bad, but because he can't be pleased). Then I had to go home after lunch to upload a website project to show a guy I was meeting after work 'cause I had forgotten to upload it last night. And it's cold and rainy!

    Palit has some amazing people. (I'm mentioning Palit a lot over at the [H] too :D)
