I don't think there's one of those near here
tesco is better than maplin. malin are OP like hell
Tesco is out of stock of precisely the cables I need
Comet and Currys now stock low price HDMI which is suprising.
know anything about TOSLINK or Composite cables as well?
Toslink for optical sound connection? Composite will give you upto 576P on da video.
Yes it is, so that I can watch BBC with the surround sound
Composite is for PlayStation 2
Merry Xmas for yesterday everyone!
I went up my old dears today, she made some crazy cake. She's got something called "coeliac" and she can't eat gluten and wheat (I think) so this is all gluten free. And it's full of sweets!
The whole lot is edible.
I hope everyone had a great Crimbo, I did! I'm now looking to purchase an SSD - HUZZARH!
Composite sucks, SCART RGB is better and PS2 has optical audio.
Snap, My Mum is also coeliac....that's a great looking cake (ponders raiding the fridge as belly is now rumbling)
An HD 6770 and 750W PSU is up for grabs
Thanks although that is one fugly graphics card
that XFX card looks like one of those '2" shorter' cut down versions of graphic cards similar to what Sapphire did with the 5850 when they turned into a 5850 Xtreme.
Dont expect it to overclock well as they probably chopped off a huge chunk of the vrms which makes the card overclock like 3 week old runny poop in a bucket.
I am not a fan of those cards. yes they are cheaper. but not being able to overclock is too much of a burden to carry. you'll wake up in the morning, look at your PC and start crying because you cant push it beyond its capabilities. You'll get depressed, you'll start drinking and become an alcoholic. You will lose your job and your wife will leave you because you couldnt even squeeze even 5mhz out of that GPU core....
Ultimately resulting in what I call a 'Blue Screen Of Life'....
you'll grow a beard. your bank will come a'knocking around your door with the repoman because you couldnt keep up your payments, and the repomans gonna take EVERYTHING but leave you with this shitty graphic card because he doesnt want the same curse.
you will live in squalour with no running water or electricity hugging your knees in the corner of the room and staring at the graphics card in the center of the room like its gonna suddenly grow legs and stride across the room to eat your face. youre gonna watch it and youre gonna keep watching it, and youre gonna watch it so hard youre brain is going to have an an aneurysm and your body will slowly paralize and you will die slowly not being able to move or call for help while all the while staring at this graphics card lying on the floor in the middle of the room...
When the local authorities finally kick your door down and go in like the U.S marshalls for your candy ass they will find your corpse in the corner still hugging its knees with its mummyfied eyes still wide open staring at the cursed graphics card in the middle of the room and they will laugh at you....because you my friend...failed at life.
So remember kids - drop it like its hot!!
Still though, those 5850 Xtreme's were bargains here, being priced roughly the same as a 5770/6770.
Those would do perfect in a mid range rig. I like Hexus giveaways because they dont require you to be a forums member or sign up to anything.
LOL You kept typing and liked it didn't you.....a nice release, streaming subconcious.
I aced the creative writing contests back in school
Ha ha, same here. It was easy to imagine somewhere that was more interesting than school.
sure it was boring as hell, but theres not a part of me that doesnt wish that I could go back and relive part of it lol. some of the things I got upto would still make me laugh pretty hard. Some of the guys I hung out with were just total jokers.
I suppose you start thinking about and/or regretting your younger days the closer you come to being 30
No regrets eh?? I probably have a list of them longer then Santa's list of what each kid in the world wants.
Hope you've all had a good Xmas. Anyone taking to the streets for new year's? Few minutes in the cold to see some fireworks :shadedshu
Got 10x Pentium 4/Celeron D computers (256MB RAM and 40GB HDD ) that are no longer of use at work. Are they worth anything? Or should I sell them for parts? Seems a bit silly to pay to have them disposed of.
Top Gear Special (India road trip) tonight on BBC HD at 8pm. Not sure if its on normal channels or been shown before but should be good for a laugh!
little over an hour to go hope this helps someone. Merry Christmas!!
