    The level of hate I have for you right now can only be measured in quantum physics.

    I know, I know. I apologize. To treat such a fantastic CPU in such a way is crime against G-P-Umanity! Alas, I have no choice, and he shall remain broken....

    :banghead:


    Unless....


    Bah, who am i kidding.:rolleyes:

    I had to sell my 2 5870's for my vet bills. My poor kitten was on her deathbed and I couldn't afford to pay the bill. The only thing I had extra was my GPU's so I sold them to pay for the bill. Now I am using an ancient ATI x800xt.

    I'm thinking of....

    selling my 5970...

    to get a CPU better than my old E8400...


    Then I could say I wish I had a better GPU than my onboard one. :nutkick:

    Dood you have no soul....

    Did I mention my sick little puppy. He may not make it. I might just have to sell my x800xt and use my old ati all-in-wonder 9600 to pay for his bills.

    The home is up for sale to help ZZZ and now I had to sell my whole computer, my ATV and Pontoon, and give blood to help pay for TheMailMan's sex change operation. :cry:

    (I'm not selling my Jeep though, you will have to pry that out of my cold dead hands.)

    I'm currently on a gtx 275 and to be honest it gets me through the day. Unfortunately it's probably time to upgrade since all the new games laugh it. If I go near anything fire related in Skyrim, I lose a good chunk of frames

    HD 5770 single slot. It's not bad but it's not great either. I'm an eye candy whore and it just doesn't allow me to crank up everything to the max whilst giving me good framerates. I use to have an i5 2500k and HD 5870 setup but then I took an arrow to my knee and lost my job.

    The card is hot as hell and can't be overclocked anymore. I see it dying pretty soom unfortunately. With 100% fan if I play Bad Company 2 for 40mins it hits 105. I also voided the warranty by trying out some new thermal paste which hasn't helped. We don't turn the heating on in our house now as the card creates a subtropical climate.

    I play every type of game from the newest shooters to farm simulators (lol) so I need a card that can do it all. I also want to go to at least a 1080p monitor early next year (if I do get a job) so I'm gonna need something that's up to the task. Jobless Hobby Horse needs a revamp.

    That is a bummer and I hope you are doing well. At least you are on the mend and get to be with your family for the holidays?

    Unlike my Puppy who probably won't pull through. I mean they are using an IV on him and everything...doesn't he look sad? Well I guess I will go play Doom on my ATI 9600 with my sickly kitten on my lap....

    I dont really NEED any new cards (although I do plan on switching back to team red soon) but my cousin (a non TPUer atm :( working on him tho lol) has a Dell 420 with a Q6600 CPU and 256MB ATI Radeon HD 3650 graphics card gpu atm :ohwell:..

    So... I wish my cousin had a nice GPU so I could play BF3 with him!:toast: Before he moves away to California..:( Now thats another long story...

    "GPU"?

    "CPU"?

    what's da differance?!?

    My Chihuahua died in 2004, my other mixed Alsatian breed died in 2010. I'm really suffering for a new CPU to help me save on the shrink's fees now, especially since I have a rabbit which I know will be dying ~ 2021...

    Actually, my 28 year old cat died a couple months ago. I'd say I was broken up about it, but 28 is unaturally old. During her later years, I was pretty much scared of the cat due to it's long lifespan. I'm pretty sure it died sometime in 1992, but remained a zombie cat up until now. Not a good looking cat either.

    On another note, this thread is for actual TPU members that wishes they had a better GPU. I mean, I have a cousin that could probablly use a new GPU, but this is for TPU members, not him.

    P.S. This thread is a riot. A sick kitty and puppy riot. That seems so wrong yet somehow it's true.
