    And Nvidia finally gets their a$$ handed to them in a DC application. Kudos to the red team for the impressive showing!

    That's due to the scheduling issues they are having... hopefully they will have it worked out at some point.

    We'll see how bad it is tomorrow when I find out if my remote rigs have run out of work or not :shadedshu

    No, I don't think so. I think that the old one had green RAM slots, this one doesn't. I'll see if I took pictures of the old one.

    Take a clean washcloth and make it wet with some cold water. Squeeze it out a little and gently press it against your closed eyelids for a few minutes. Then try to go to bed as soon as possible.

    Stop crying, I just spent just shy of $2k($1050 for the engine and around $800 for tools, oil/antifreeze, labor, beer after work, and a new radiator to replace the one I F'ed up when removing it) to get a engine put in my truck, and that was buying a junkyard engine and having friends install it. Jasper wanted $2,800 for a crate engine. I would have been around $4k if I bought the crate engine and had a shop install it. BTW, it's a 2003 F150 XL with the 4.2 liter V6.

    I have a 2001 Saab 9-5 Aero with a 2.3L 4-cylinder with a high output turbo. Part prices have doubled since Saab went defunct. If my engine blew, I doubt that I would replace it. A new car would be in order. The flex pipe alone for the exhaust was 450 USD. I spend considerably more on parts than I do on labor. At that point it would cost less to get a new used car than it would to repair it because if you're engine went the real question is what will go next.

    I come out of "retirement" when it comes to these types of expenses. A local franchise tried to charge me over $500 for rear brakes on a Ford Taurus a few years back :wtf: it took me an hour and about $100 to buy new shoes, drums, and a jack.

    It's nice to get a little payback out of spending 10 years fixing cars :cool:

    Shit if it come down to replacing an engine I would have just jumped for the 5.4L or even a 4.6L V-8 :)

    Shit I would just replace the engine with redneck rigged chevy 350 LOL

    Unfortunately it's not always that easy... transmission/trans. mountings, engine mounts, exhaust, computer controls, etc....:shadedshu

    Nowadays its almost like trying to wire a Phenom II into an X58 Intel board :p

    Before 1980 it was a lot simpler.

    Yea, it takes work. I wished vehicles were more simpler like in the older days. Even my 89 with 302 would be hard to change engine since it has a computer and full wireing harness.
