    I have to be on a fair bit to do my Moddin chores. I am the West Midlands Head of programmes for the UK's largest Youth Charity and yes I get a MOD pension also :D it's actually a very busy job and I have around 20 staff. Having said that I do leave the house to go to work at about 6.30 AM and don't usually get home till about 6 at night.

    i sold a properly dead 470 for 60,how did you manage to sell a (presumably live) 460 for 75?
    for what its worth the 460 is a better card then the 470 in terms of power/price

    The 9800GT(X?) is about as powerful as the GTS250, which is weaker than the GTS 450.

    No it's about 50% of the performance of a 460 :)

    I have a dilemma....

    What do you do if you really really NEED to fart but you know deep inside its gonna be a loud one. but theres people standing or sitting all around you that would hear it? do you let if off and hope no one hears or do you suffer in silence?

    I never hide mine. I'll always admit it, because I'm proud of my air biscuits.
