    there are so many idiots about, who as soon as you mention overclocking, they look at you with the silly face and say "Oh no, that can kill my pc"
    and even when you try and explain it is safe to do, they are still not interested in listening, but these are the type of people who go to pc world, and get ripped off with crap pc's

    I prefer a few whiskys first before hitting the shots - Tequila or Jagerbomb/Jagermeister. A better monitor would be a good way to go, Look for a Viewsonic CP2365wb - they have managed to cram an excellent top notch IPS panel into an under £200 budget. yes I changed my avatar.

    I used to go delta force alot but with the new crew we now regular at Campaign

    thats where you come in and offer your expertise (if you have any) I have poached alot of customers from PCworld before they signed on the dotted line and made custom builds for them and also overclocked rigs for the more openminded bunch tech wannabes who just want something special for bragging rights.

    theres a lot of people who walk around PCworld that dont have a single clue what they are looking at.

    Trust me - PC world is an excellent place to poach business from. I think Ive only ever had 2 rejections from people just because im not a proper registerd/established business. and the other was because I didnt have a business card to give them (maybe i should just print a load off)

    I think its about time I save up for a Sandy Bridge i7 rig - all i really need is the mobo, ram, CPU and HSF - roughly about £450-470. though i could try save a few pennies by going with an i5 sandy instead

    Just after I thought I was happy with my rig as it is. I want a fucking Silverstone FT03.

    >.<

    Obviously I'm going to hang back until Sandy Bridge matures but I'm possibly going to be parting with my core components; albeit, not my RAM, GPU or PSU.

    Finally got my mate to upload that FF7 Jenova Remix - he made it yeeeeears ago.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1ErrvnWvxQs

    EDIT: Just got a new camera so you won't have to put up with my terrible pics anymore.

    Just had a go on it, I'm impressed. Believe it or not, the PC is actually on in this pic, and all the fans are actually spinning!
    I had to resize the image by 50% (in Paint), it was originally 4000x3000

    Na, just a by-product of laziness... The camera really brings the dust out, it doesn't look as bad as that IRL. Honest :laugh:

    Yea, it's really dark in the PC corner though, even with a high ISO setting it was too dark. The picture above is using the automatic "Smart" setting. The only option you can change is pic. size, so it was the camera doing all the work.

    This pic is using the lowest ISO setting (80) using a light reflected off the wall: EDIT: Also, it was on a tripod using the timer and the PC was turned off this time...
