    I needs a new gpu because 480 sli simply isn't enough to play console ports with at 1680x1050 . lol

    Now I could use a new monitor.

    It IS you! :D

    Wait...the staff position doesn't come with any shiny new hardware? Not even a review sample? Even though your awesome news posts are going to increase traffic and therefore ad revenue? What doe Wizz do with it all? lol

    (OK, granted there aren't any ads on the forum itself...)

    Well, my 470 was nice then it decided to blow up. Working to save for a sexy 570/80 then i got called into the office and fired for literally no reason ("we ran out of stuff for you to do, bye").

    Now I'm stuck on my emergency 9800GT, cant really play BF3, Skyim, or any other current games. Cant really afford gifts for my family. Woe is me. haha

    And as for hoping Santa visits this thread I believe he may have started it. It's all very vague, though, indeed...

    I've got EUR 50 coming for Christmas. Not enough to buy a decent card. If there is a TPU giveaway coming my way, then that EUR 50 will go to a children's charity. Guaranteed. AND I'll donate the old card it is replacing back into the TPU community. For the kids.

    I think that Santa's sleigh doesn't really respect international boundries and it's fast enough to dodge surface to air missles. Just saying.

    You just ask for help if you need it, and if there is someone on TPU who can help you they will. That's what we do here ... help people.

    My GT 240 died about a month now :(, been using a 4650 ever since, playing BF3 quite smoothly on 848x480, next is MW3, before BF3 was fear 3 which ran well at 1280x800, might get myself a 5750 in january as a late birthday gift to myself

    was supposed to get a 4890 for $80 but someone bought it the day before i was supposed to meet the seller :( might be for the best because the most my psu can support is a 5750 since it barely pulls anything from the 6 pin
