    i'd donate something but the only thing i have are some really cheap psu's (you could probably buy them for less then it would cost me to post them to you) and the worlds ugliest case, oh and a pentium 4 if you want it

    you'd probably get a lot of support if you gave this build its own thread

    i can rip another Q6600 out of my brother's machine. im looking for a slight upgrade if possible + that one is going to a good cause! :)

    but for second hand is that a decent price?

    Cheers man, yea might have to get it's own thread, gonna try and gather everything discreetly first, then donate it publicly. But yea, if we can't get everything donated then it'll get it's own thread.

    Na, it's not the donated one, I got 2 Q6600's here and another on it's way soon.

    Probably is an OK price, cheapest I can find new is £168

    Revision is for sissies :)

    No seriously, get your subjects down to 4-5 pages of bare bones notes each, much easier to revise on the day of the exam. Sounds hard but if you summarise your summary notes it can be done (even for A levels!). Helped me out a lot took a while but confidence was much better after.

    I was never that great at maths.... Hell i was never great in any subject unless something in it caught fire or exploded. but unfortunately, daddy always thought playing with fire was dangerous so i never got a science kit for my birthday.

    fire?? dangerous??? Its all hearsay i tell you. fire wouldnt even hurt a bug.

    I've been watching Star Trek. Lots and lots of Star Trek.:shadedshu
    I try so hard to revise yet I can never bring myself to revise. I suck.:(

    That only works if you have an average or better memory. I once forgot the word spoon in two languages.:rockout: So I doubt that would work with me.

    Ha ha it seems like everyone has an old Q6600 in a box under the bed! I have one here too if you want it!

    I also have a couple of decent power supplies, will get details tomorrow afternoon if I remember. Also I have plenty of DDR2 RAM floating around here too.

    Also HDDs. Plenty of them around here.

    I can get on with the daily work but exams i forget a lot. Its because i have a terrible selective memory, for example forcing myself to memorise never works for me and i remember things more by chance. The case for me anyway is that i tend to understand the material quite easily but never retain it.

    I feel that if you have a great memory you will do great in education, even if you don't necessarily understand to a certain extent you will still remember what to do or what it was either way.

    Im not good at explaining things i have AS btw.

    I tend to have a crap short term memory. but GREAT long term memory. Im good at remembering names and faces even though I havent seen or spoke to them in 20 odd years. I still remember all the names of my high school mates and teachers off the top of my head.

    Some times Id struggle to put a sentence together. Id be talking to someone, try to describe an item or something then forget 1 critical word -- and these things are everyday words not something easy to forget.

    but thats just me.

    but its good because it means if you stab me in the back, I will get my revenge however long it takes :)

    Don't worry, if you stab him deep enough (South London style) you will not need to be bothered about him stabbing you back ;)
