    Hmm, if Cyberdruid is up to it, I may just sell a kidney or something.

    We've decided to keep the Christmas presents cheap, and instead buy big birthday presents.

    We did help my bro buy a CM Hyper Z600 cooler. And I thought my Ultra 120 was big!
    Good thing he has my old P180 case.

    Well my dad found out how much I spent and was gonig to order me what I really wanted

    a SDD drive. Hell my sister is getting a Wii.....But then my mom stopped him. Because they spent 100-200 on my son. I'm cool with that/ It's just they are fing rich and really I mean that. It's crazy I know.....but that's how you get there every penny counts.

    So now no SDD drive and I think I'm just going to get the 10USD dollar backpack that I asked for.....Which I will still be very happy to get because I really wanted that backpack.

    I really wanted that SDD drive tho and he was getting me the Gskull when she stopped him:(

    I hope she likes what I got her...

    Well it looks like I am getting a SDD drive....

    I almost had my system installed. ALMOST.(O yea don't copy your profile in windows 7 onto the super admin....You will be reinstalling. That trick from XP does not work on it.....a beta bug I think)

    Then I was going to pull it all apart and spray paint my 790i Ultra white. Well I reached over and down came the 500 gig and hit the floor.....I ran scandisk on it took hours.

    The drive still works it's just slow as @#%#@!!!!!

    So I called my dad on his way in just mad at myself at what I had done, and just asked if I could borrow the money for a SDD drive.

    BUT nope.

    He said he would order me one today!!!

    Woot!!! BUT I'm still pissed I broke the 500gig. Maybe it will come back....I find that hardware that dies comes back after a while I don't know why. BUT in a ton of cases for me that has happened......I didn't do it to get a SDD drive really.....LOL...good idea but was not the plan.
