    ^^ Agreed. But, like others have said, he's prob just excited... and trying to piss everyone off. I bet right now he's laughing, especially looking at how seriously some of you took his comments.

    I read through pages 1 and 3 of posts and didn't see it mentioned, but if you didn't buy this stuff already I'd replace the Radeon and wait for the soon to be released 8800GT. Its cheaper, more powerful than the 2900XT...and while not confirmed yet I'll be comfortable betting that its quieter too. I plan on selling my GTX when it comes out and getting myself a GT, having a little spending cash on hand.

    I cant believe how jealous some of you are getting.... not to mention you felt like you HAD to post that you thought your system was better than his.

    Seriously.... does it really matter to you THAT much? He is excited about his new setup, big deal. When you get a new computer part... do you not run to the forums armed with new pictures and tests showing how great your new part is? Everyone does it, I do it, you do it....

    I hope you don't have nightmares about this thread :rolleyes:

    some of us are very, hum lets say "Ferringi" stingy and take pride in bargains.. I know I did in my recent fiasco rebuild, ok ,add 100$ due to oops, one ide slot in the p5k-e, me mangling a pin in my dvd and needing a emergengy sata drive to help on the install! total conversion cost 939 to 775. fx 60 2 gig to e 6850 two gig, around 25.00$ no worries.. there is always someone smarter faster etc! Its not what you have, its what you do with what you have,
    that was a freebe lol!

    I agree. Name calling is infantile. People should learn to express themselves by expanding their vocabulary, not tossing out vain insults.
