yeah i couldnt be stuffed anymore. every place i went to didnt have what i was after so i just went for the top of my budget.

considering i didnt want to spend more than 300 on the card, it was mighty expensive. But saying that, i have been playing morrowind on the new pc and WOW. there are things id never seen before on my old pc. The water actually looks like water and everything really is pretty good.

Of course i forgot to format 100gig of my HDD when i was setting everything up. But somehow i managed to find some program on windows that allows you to create partitions on the disk. so i was able to fix that up.

All i need now is my own dvd rom, keyboard, mouse and monitor ^^

I really don't understand why someone would actually 'lend' graphic cards and other computer components to their friends; I never let mine come out of the cases until it's upgraded and changed. That includes games as well; I always buy mine so they're all original, so everyone asks me for games, and I always give them a burnt copy. Learnt my lesson when someone stole my copy of original HL

Hmmmmhmmm ....

I'm having a difficult time figuring out whether clint999 is an automated agent of spam.

On the one hand, all 'he' ever does is copy and paste from other people's posts, resulting in pure unadulterated nonsense, and has an advert in 'his' signature.

On the other hand, the username 'clint' suggests that someone named Clint is actually typing all of this and just by pure luck, or some insane probability distribution, his sentences all match those in the threads he posts in.

I don't know about you, but it's a tough one to call.
