    Thanks man, just reminded me to tell the Mrs to get the bacon out of the freezer :rockout: didn't remember to get it out last night so had to settle for sausage and egg instead of bacon and egg sarnie on Christmas morning!!! :cry:And I agree, bacon has to be cooked right, personally I find pan ffrying it with a little butter until brown but not really crispy gives the best tasting bacon and I am generally an unsmoked kind of guy when it comes to bacon.

    Everyone had a good day?

    Where would be a good place to buy TV cables quickly?

    I'm thinking of just going down to Tesco and buying one of their own brand HDMI cables

    Merry Xmas for yesterday everyone!

    I went up my old dears today, she made some crazy cake. She's got something called "coeliac" and she can't eat gluten and wheat (I think) so this is all gluten free. And it's full of sweets!
    The whole lot is edible.

    Composite sucks, SCART RGB is better and PS2 has optical audio.

    that XFX card looks like one of those '2" shorter' cut down versions of graphic cards similar to what Sapphire did with the 5850 when they turned into a 5850 Xtreme.

    Dont expect it to overclock well as they probably chopped off a huge chunk of the vrms which makes the card overclock like 3 week old runny poop in a bucket.

    I am not a fan of those cards. yes they are cheaper. but not being able to overclock is too much of a burden to carry. you'll wake up in the morning, look at your PC and start crying because you cant push it beyond its capabilities. You'll get depressed, you'll start drinking and become an alcoholic. You will lose your job and your wife will leave you because you couldnt even squeeze even 5mhz out of that GPU core....

    Ultimately resulting in what I call a 'Blue Screen Of Life'....

    you'll grow a beard. your bank will come a'knocking around your door with the repoman because you couldnt keep up your payments, and the repomans gonna take EVERYTHING but leave you with this shitty graphic card because he doesnt want the same curse.
    you will live in squalour with no running water or electricity hugging your knees in the corner of the room and staring at the graphics card in the center of the room like its gonna suddenly grow legs and stride across the room to eat your face. youre gonna watch it and youre gonna keep watching it, and youre gonna watch it so hard youre brain is going to have an an aneurysm and your body will slowly paralize and you will die slowly not being able to move or call for help while all the while staring at this graphics card lying on the floor in the middle of the room...

    When the local authorities finally kick your door down and go in like the U.S marshalls for your candy ass they will find your corpse in the corner still hugging its knees with its mummyfied eyes still wide open staring at the cursed graphics card in the middle of the room and they will laugh at you....because you my friend...failed at life.

    So remember kids - drop it like its hot!!

    Still though, those 5850 Xtreme's were bargains here, being priced roughly the same as a 5770/6770.

    Those would do perfect in a mid range rig. I like Hexus giveaways because they dont require you to be a forums member or sign up to anything.
