    I thought I had fixed my second HD 5850 but nope, it's back to crashing in 3D. So I am in dire need of a something satisfy my hardware fix. Hopefully the withdrawal symptoms ease soon.

    Dear Santa I was good this year, except for that thing.............................:pimp:. Please get me a HD 6990. I'll leave milk and cookies as usual.

    Love
    Vincy Boy

    Bah, spent 2 years to work my way up to 2 used gtx285s, and also 3 years to finally get a first gen i7 system. Now my 285s are choking on all the newest games, some I have to drop to medium settings! I really wish I had a better gpu.....

    GTX 460 SE owner here (oc'd), not really bad as an SE card, since im only gaming at 1280 x 1024, tho because of that i refuse to get a larger display (1080) since it would most likely hurt its performance :D

    Love my unlocked Sapphire 6950 but my motherboard can handle 4 of them, would love to re visit the land of X-Fire and all the potentially stressful moments that go with it :p

    At the moment I'm sort of okay with my gpu not being the best, as I can't afford new games anyway.

    I'm running a mobility Radeon 4570.

    I need to get off my arse and install the $1000 or so worth of watercooling gear so I can get my 5870/5850 and the rest of the desktop back into action.


    So I guess I wish I had the drive to work on it, so that I would have the use of a better GPU.




    Too lazy to work on my watercooling so I'm stuck with a laptop to play all the steam games I bought on sale. #FIRSTWORLDPROBLEMS


    oh, yeah, and my limo driver needs a limo driver to get him to my limo

    Ha! Don't ask me that question, erocker. It doesn't matter what GPU I've got, it's never good enough for me! :laugh:

    I haz a sad.


    Santa, the plump old bas...uh...bastion of hope, paid me a visit last night, said I was a bad boy, and he was taking my 6950's, and giving me a lump of coal instead.

    Now, my dreams crushed, I'm left with only this:

    Santa, my 6-core CPU is cold and lonely, please bring some GPU warmth into his life! Look how empty his daily life is!
