I was hoping that I would not need to use a plastic mat for rolling since I have commercial low nap carpet. Still need the mat as its still not easy to roll. Not really an unexpected outcome, so I wil move a mat in the room and it will probably work great.

The card is for size reference and even though the unit was on no heat was being used or the fan assembly of the card would have been melted.
Probrably need to let this thing "bake" it anyway since the card doesn't work. :D

I'm well chuffed with my 580. I've had it for about 18 months now and it plays everything I throw at it, although Shadow Of The Tomb Raider at maximum does struggle a bit.
If I can't go Ultra or Very High, the High setting suits me just fine.
Enjoy your new card :)

Thanks. I'm absolutely thrilled with the performance thus far. Getting 80-90 FPS with BF4 and well over 150 FPS with Modern Warfair 2 (yeah I know its an older game but still impressive IMO). I've yet to get into BIOS modding the 580 but it is something I'm interested in learning on. Love the fact the card has an OC from the factory, up to 1380Mhz boost clocks.

Went to a ton of yard sales today and found some interesting things...

...like this Sony VAIO VGN-A250 laptop for $10. It's in great shape, has a Pentium M 725, 512MB of memory, and an 80GB hard drive. Came with Windows XP Pro on it, I'm installing Lubuntu 18.04 to see how it runs. Also gonna see if I can stick another 512MB of memory in it.


Other things were an Actiontec powerline kit and a Netgear wireless bridge for $2 each, two little Android tablets for $5 each, and a neat little presentation keyboard-trackpad combo thing for $1.


Also found a bag full of DDR2 SODIMMs for $5 I believe. Most of them are 1GB, but I found a 2GB one.

This was by far my most productive yard sale run ever.

Just bought this today at thrift store for 6.00$ canadian.

Stereo amplifier Yamaha A-07 circa 1984
4 channels @ 30 watts per channel on 8 ohms but will probably plug car speakers 6x9 @ 4 ohms.
No tuner inside just a pure and simple amp with many back RCA inputs that I could plug MP3 player, computer, dvd and tv.

It would probably sound a lot better than today's HiFi stuff too after any sort of recapping if it needs it.

Don't get me wrong. Today's digital recordings sound great but 80s analogue is so much more wholesome
