    WTF = Easter Islands, possibly, but I assume its Polynesia
    What? = Azores
    Cloudy Meetballs = Bermuda (Triangle, ring a bell?)
    The left really? = Mascerine Islands (Mauritius for example)
    the right really? = Maledives
    No one = Penguins don't need fancy GPUs
     
    _JP_ and DaMulta say thanks.

    The "What?" arrow is pointing at Azores. Not that low populated, lots of people live there. It's a very beautiful place, lots of amazing landscapes and the locals are very friendly. The US of A has a A.F. base there.

    EDIT: MRCL beat me to with and with a more complete answer. Well done! :toast:

    Part of my job requirement is Geography. I had to know where every land on earth is located, its name, its capital, and largest cities. I knew them all. Forgotten most of em now tho :slap:

    It would be nice if it went to a member of TPU who is a regular. That way we would see a thread and some nice pictures, but as usual, they're all prize goblins and just enter for the prize and never log in again.

    My PSU is 700W

    My PSU is RocketFish 700W, but i guess its real power is only 550 watt. I think it can support this card. The card currently in my computer is HD 3870x2 and it works well.

    Q9450 + Asus P5W HD Extreme + 320G + 4G DDR2 + Nec ND 3520A + HD 3870x2/5870

    if you can run a 3870x2, then a 5870 will run just fine. I think it uses even less power than the 3870x2
