    If he uses speedstep do a Ninja OC to the max Speedstep won't crash with. When he's looking at idle computer at low speeds he'll never know. But then when he plays your ninja skills take over :rockout:

    Done it mate. His ears are like lead. He's one of them: he thinks he knows the lot because he's the one in his circle who knows the most, but he doesn't know as much as he thinks he does. He doesn't truly understand hardware like a techie...
    I'll just laugh when he gets a nice new 6990 and wonders why his graphics are no better.

    Great deal! If you still have that 460 next weekend, I'd be more than interested!

    EDIT: Sorry for posting when I'm not yet a member of the Clubhouse; I've PM'd Tatty and am waiting to be added! How I've missed this Clubhouse before I do not know...

    On second thoughts....Id go around to his house for a few drinks. slip acouple of roofies into his then when hes out cold - super glue his hand to his arse. then swap out that 5870/6990 for a 5770. He probably wont know the difference anyway. and in anycase if he does - just photoshop a new reciept from the place he bought it from and he should go with the story.

    Well, depends on how you see it really. Its either they are subsidising our prices, or they are the cause of stupid prices.

    Will have to see. I am trying to get some holidays in late Feb or early March so it depends what dates I find cheapest flights. I'll PM ya closer the time if I can make it. But yeah I'd expect to have to pay for my own paintballs. That's where the majority of the cost is.

    i dont touch shorts, until i am fairly drunk, and then its either Jameson, Bushmills or Sambuca.
    also thanks for the tip, on the upgrade, i know my old Q6600 would bottleneck a good card, but i am thinking of either jusy getting a better monitor and gpu or going for a different setup, like a i7 rig or maybe even go the AMD route, it just depends on my budget.

    ps. also is it me or have you changed your avatar? you used to have a clown or something like that before

    Wow. You know when you join a conversation halfway through and you feel like you just wanna quietly leave the room, or stay silent in the corner?

    Where do you usually go paintballing Freedom?
