    If youre looking for a good deal on a 2500k and some other gear. go look at LifeOnMars's FS thread. dude has just lost his job and he could do with the cash. so hes selling off some high end gear

    i can get 90% on BC2

    and now i've redone my wiring and cleaned out the dust i don't have to under-clock it to avoid thermal throttling (stock AMD heatsink :mad:) (actual problem is i've got a c3 with a max temp of 71'c but since its an unlock the board makes it throttle at 63'c like the original phenom ii chips)

    I'm running vista, it was ok speed but when you activate ready-boost, on a usb stick, magic happens and it goes faster

    Off topic again! I am looking for a knife sharpener, what should I get? Preferably something I can get online / easy to get in supermarket.

    Looking at this one atm: http://www.amazon.co_uk/dp/B001DXVL6K/?tag=tec053-21

    Only complaint is that people seem to find it shaving too much metal off the knife. Any thoughts?

    I have that exact same sharpner, and all I can say is get it. It's fucking amazing.

    i ended up installing windows 7 on a pc on thursday only to realize i couldn't get networking drivers for it, and it ran incredibly slowly

    also i couldn't find the driver for a 'Nvidia riva TNT'?

    Over at Adobe forums they're using a modified file to show the scores from 1-10 instead of 1-7.9. No-one would give it to me :cry: clicky b*stards

    there is a big difference between your scores and mine, your using windows 7, i'm using vista, 5.9 is the highest score windows vista will give, therefore where mine looks slower then yours, my computer is actually so fast windows can not rate it properly

    If its using an old Nvidia TNT then it should *NOT run windows 7 period, XP would probably be slow. YOU hardly see anything that old paired with anything that isnt as old as it is.

    Well for a start it saves a mod coming deleting it, common curtsey i guess. Just seemed like you never knew about the delete feature, which might come in handy sometime.
