    Anyone played the 3rd person game Hydrophobia: Prophecy? it's £1.50 on steam and the graphics look really nice from the trailor I seen.

    Told ya! I am on the SATA II 3Gbit limit :) I have not even bothered to update Firmware as I cant really go any faster, and another thing, this Samsung F4 is averageing 160ms read speeds, it's damn fast for a standard HDD.

    Edit: oppps thats max, average is 145ms.

    You must mean Mb/s not ms as 145ms is a slow access time.

    I wanted the M4..... well a SATA3 (plus I only paid £59 for it!), just so as when I upgrade board and CPU probably in the spring I have the best future proofing, I might even then update the firmware lol.

    Yup my bad, MB/s not MS lol.

    I will really consider it come payday (next week) on a seperate note, can't believe I am still contemplating spending money on my rig, I really don't think I need to though I have an obsession with my PC's that is not good to my wallet, but hey, surely my PC starting in 3 seconds as opposed to 5 is a worthy upgrade right???? lmao

    Surely if I do that the only logical upgrade for me would be another 570 then there is nothing left, right?.....

    Also doesn't help I have never had money until I got my current job 3 years ago and well it really fucking helps to buy nice things you couldn't beforehand, I am so materialistic :ohwell:

    No excuses really - I offered you my Vertex2+cash. it would have been a win win situation for both of us

    Depends who gets cash first - you or Bo$$ - bo$$ has dibs on it at the moment.

    Can you keep that talk for the b/s/t thread.

    Hydrophobia: Prophecy looks worth a punt at £1.50, water graphics are nice but the rest of the graphics are meh. Its like an upgraded version of an XBLA game.

    I found it strange they included Half Life 2 in the Super Meat Boy Anniversary bundle. 22 specials on steam and nothing really interesting me, Dead Island is £29.99 which isnt really that good a price but it was originally £49.99 on steam LOL.

    If it bothers you so much then you dont have to read my/our trade posts. Talking about it is fine, advertising is not otherwise I would have been bitch slapped by Tatty

    I dont have a problem with people discussing SSDs, i just don't see the point in thread crapping when you have a thread in the B/S/T.

    Don't read those posts? That's a bit moronic.
