    yep - I did it last time when i sold a Xonar D2X on gumtree. Guy wanted tech support and advice so I said id be happy to help if he paid for my time.


    ---------------

    And UGH -- checked out all the warranties for different AMD/ATi GPU partners and ALL of them void warranty if you take the stock cooler off. so im totally boned. Ive got no choice but to stick with these XFX leaf blowers and just crank my speakers up when the cards go into warp 9 and hit 80-85'c

    It's for a 65w Athlon but we need something quieter so basicly anything with a variable speed fan will do

    If you are thinking about getting a nice long roll and make them to sell for some profits you probably can give it a try.

    That depends. Lots of 32bit Windows Server OS's have PAE which allow them to use more than 4GB.. some OS can do 64GB:

    Yo cheesy, if you advertise it in the BST section, you'll no doubt get some people wanting it. Might take a month or so to pick up, but I reckon people will go for custom length stuff. If you could get some female ends as well as male ends, you could make extensions, which might be popular too.
    Oh cheesy, I got a cooler in my FS thread, I'm doing it less than £15. Link to FS thread should be in my sig...

    oh yea, there it is!


    How is everyone?

    Same here. The skint thing, not the hunting thing :p I want your Frio aswell! Seems there's loads of people who want it but can't afford. Ach, I wouldn't use it anyway. I'd just look at it or use it as an ornament :laugh:

    Man the rules of writing and examining CV's have changed again! Seems more employers are looking for people straight out of Uni or school, as they're mouldable. I'm gonna write a new CV, say I'm 18 and just left school!

    well nothings selling very fast tbh,

    I expected my 5850s to go like got cakes but ive still got them after a week. If their still here by the end of next week, im probably gonna go back to the guy who offered me £210 for both, which is a stupid offer but if no one is interested, theres nothing i can do

    If worst comes to worst, I'll even sell it to CEX. something i dont really want to do as they'll give me £85 for it.

    guy who offered me £210 is un willing to budge even to £225

    No i wont. Purely because you can get a 5850 for £100 brand new, (i.e the 5850 Xtreme or the XFX 5850)

    My cards arnt the shitty cut down 10" versions. and Id like to think that, that is also a selling point since its also able to clock a lot higher then a 10" card.

    when i had the 5850 Xtreme the best OC i could get out of it was 770 on the core and probably 1090 on the ram.

    the guy said he wanted to water cool the cards and was asking about my overclocks so, he definitely knows these are good cards. He just doesnt want to pay for them.

    just nabbed a secondhand new Aircon unit for £70

    Its also not one of them cheap shit brands either. Its the homebase (re-branded Amcor?) one that costs anywhere near as much as £260

    I wanted to give the lady £60 for it but she said no. £70 for a new unit still aint bad for something thats only been used twice since purchase.

    Picking it up tomorrow as my glorified cab driver doesnt wanna drive after coming off shift today. *shakes my fist angrily* Old men and their cars!! If only i could drive...If only....
