    You know you're hardcore when...

    ...you get your paycheck, have to pay 30 bills but you spend it on tech instead
    ...you check TPU before your email
    ...you get watercooling to add a whole 100mhz to your cpu speed


    your turn:)

    You take good care of your credit history, and have almost 800, but only as the wife paid two bills late a couple months ago, but they still waive the fees, then you get a credit line at the egg bigger than your monthly income and buy all new hardware and ahve a year to pay for it wiith no interest or other fees.

    When you would rather spend more money on your rig than on your gf/wife.

    And/or you would rather spend hours playing with your rig than talking to your gf/wife.

    I think everyone would rather spend hours with the rig... unless you're substituting "talking" for something else... :toast:
