    Heard the graphics were pretty decent but too much bloom & no re-spawn, is that true?

    ;)

    Not Naughty, it is registered, cost me £250 (which could actually buy me 4) to have it "Made safe" to bring back to the UK but all they do is take out the working parts and issue a certificate...... then just the usual secure storage requirements and annual inspection.....I have a spare set hidden away anyways ;)

    That's handy, in a zombie apocolypse you could pay some surviving kids to fix the gun up for a few sandwiches :laugh:


    I'm somewhat confused by guns having to be deactivated, after all it's not hard to build a magnetically driven gause rifle with enough power to really hurt/kill someone. ( Just seems projectile weapons are fairly easy to build, just hard to build them and make them highly accurate/low recoil etc XD)

    75 amp truck battery + array of magnets mmm : ]

    John Malkovich once made a gun out of plastic. I think it fired only .22 or .38 calibre though so not exactly a cop killer by any standards. (infact i think the the cops in HK use a .38 S&W Special as stand issue - I know that the better trained fire-arms units use stuff like H&K MP5/10's and 9mm Glocks. In fact, thats pretty much standard issue for security guards working at the Hong Kong Airport. I think the UK airport police are issued with the same loadout. but the only difference is the uniforms - and the fact we make being armed to the back teeth look good)

    What would be the point of having a UK club if people from all over the world are able to join? Defeats the point.

    I'm not trying to be malicious I'm just stated that I think it's a dumb move to allow others that aren't from or in the UK... in.

    I'm not going to be joining from US members club because I want to visit America.

    You have got a point there. :ohwell:

    But still, if someone understands the British culture, knows the difference between Foster and Fuller, spells colour and thinks driving on the left is the "right" way, I don't see how we can reject him/her.

    I hope I get a good chip and my TRUE is enough to overclock it well.

    Total noob to Sandbridge overclocking, its just different. Doesn't look too hard though.
