yes and I'm still a little ........ about it.
Me too, I'm right pissed off about it. The masses were punished due to the idiocity of a minority. *insert a whole page of profanity directed toward the horsehumping-knobjockey-penispoppers that got it closed*

i think its because they just keep copying and pasting the specs off other people over the years of sales. So its probably been unedited for the last 4 years lol.

I agree, I prefer buying from wholesalers and genuine IT stores.

I have to say, my friend was fuming when he got a 7800GT for a low price (around $100USD) and then it turned out to be one that was artifacting and had been mucked around with, some odd soldering going on O_O. It got refunded, but wasted his time liek crazy.

Those people dont even know anything about what they are selling. Some guys are so lost/stoned:

I tell my friend "ahahha I got a X1950PRO (half my school is laaaging behind, buying compaqs, hps, dells... I'm now recommending packages or parts for my friends... saved a few guys several hundred and one guy 1k." then hes like "isnt the best an ATI 512MB" .. . wow.. people are lost.

My friends fully going "OMGZ I GOT A CORE 2 DUO" Im liek "Um.. yeah is it somethign liek a-" He says "its a Compaq" =_=, "Hey man, no offense but you got ripped" man some guys are slow then I go "hahaha lol you got ripped bad, how much did you pay anyway?" he goes "$999". At this point im thinking LOL, he tells me specs:

(well these OEM faggots always use the cheapest of the cheap)
-Core 2 Duo E6300 OEM"I think it is a core 2 duo with the sticker on it, no a windows XP...LOL"
-512MB Corsair Value Select DDR553 "512 RAM is good"
-Crappy Compaq motherboard, MATX, 3 PCI slots and one PCI-E 16x "Its got the latest generation um Express PCI"
-Maxtor (now seagate) 80GB HDD
-ASUS X1300 Hyper memory 512MB "ATI Radeon 512MB, (I got I got a X1950PRO 256) its better than yours its also got Hyper memory"
-Combo Drive
-400W PSU that barely keeps the system stable

(I found out the specs after checkin his PC even more)
He then sums it up going "custom built sucks man! you dont know the quality Compaq has its got windows vista as well"

Whats up with the crappy cable management!
pfft. Could have built the same thing for $500AUD, not $1k.

I warned him earlier anyway lol... Idiot's luck. He then labels another friend of mine pro, calling him a "Computer Professional", well my other friend keeps asking me shit every day, I might as well block him on MSN... T_T.



Man he's hilarious...

lol dude dont try to reason with people, tell them the stuff you can do with yours that they cant. Tell your friend to try playing FEAR or GRAW or something lol.

Hypermemory is like half the memory shared from system ram if i remember correctly.
Nvidia did exactly the same thing, they called it "turbo cache"

sounds awesome doesnt it :roll:

:roll: The ignorance with some PC parts these days is disgusting. OEM desktops are the worst part of the entire PC industry. Designed simply around turning on, and loaded with enough advertisements to slow the whole thing to a slimy crawl, an arguably worse part of this debauchery (lolz big words) is the consumer's blatant ignorance....

But I don't have much problem with OEM laptops. There's something to be said for "carry this thing wherever I want and still get internet". I mean, the Windows Vista thing my dad got from Gateway came with like 80 processes running in the background (shit like Napster, Mcafee, Gateway "bigfix", AOL, google desktop...). I spent about an hour with this laptop and now I must say it performs quite nicely. I love Windows Vista now :).

Oh yeah and custom built rapes OEM desktops any day :rockout: (unless you're going for the sub-$500 range, in which case you're going to get a POS either way you look at it :p).

Yeah.. his PC was lagging like crazy and he said "it was so fast that it does that". He doesnt even know what the core 2 duo is anyway. Like, the misleading ads go "Windows Vista premium supported" Then it only has like 256MB of RAM due to the fact that half of it is used.

OEM rigs are ugly as shit imho, look more ugly than my old generic beige box, my nex generic beige box looks great though. OEM PC cases are absolutely crap in terms of quality, being easy to assemble, thus speeding up production. The concept is:

Easy to install, hard to replace

Btw, I dont find a point in the Antec Solution series cases... they got the SAME powder coats, got the same ducting, got the same thickness of metal and got nickel plating on all the sheets of metal. So wtf is up with antec cases? Especially solution? I find that the airflow is crapper, and the fact that my X1950PRO will barely fit; whats the point of them, my generic case is bigger and has the same rigidy. and whats funny is that they both have ISO 9001 standard regulations manufacturing processes.

Another thing I find funny is I can build a perfectly speedy PC for less than 1k, having:

Core 2 Duo E4300
2x512MB DDR 667
ASUS P5B
7600GT
Generic "SUPER CASE" (I have it), comes with ducting, feet, VGA preforations and nickel plating.
160GB WD SATA II (OR SEAGATE)
OEM DVD+RW+DL
Coolermaster Extreme 500W

Total cost = $935

Well well well... compare it to the compaq i mentioned. It only had 80GB of storage and a crappy 400W PSU that would explode if it was used on my system (or any of yours), absolutely impossible to use with a prescott.
