What does your PC have?

Computer sat up on the gurney & insisted it was fine, refused to pay the ER bill & walked out. Now it's working again.

I'm looking at a gigabyte board w/ AMD 64 4000, 2 gig of ram & on-board Ge-Force 6100 w/ a PCI express slot for upgrading.

The board is support faster chips & up to 8 gig ram. There's also a new 500w power supply.

This is through a authorized rep for about $300 & includes 24/7 tech support, after hours probably costing me a couple cold

beers.

Uhm, Chrismas has already passed...

And why in gods name did you get a 8800 GTX for Christmas. Are you crazy? Y'know. If you've got that nVidia chipset then you could have gotten 2 8800 GT's which will be cheaper then one GTX and quite a bit faster too.

I duuno if I said this (I am on lots of forums) but I got Dual Monitor now, on New Years Eve I just plugged an external monitor into my laptop and instead of cloning the display I told it to extend the desktop. I used to use my Laptop as a Desktop so I cloned the display and tried it once, but now I have it permanently, I made room on my desk and shit...

this i had only one only...

i hope to have ATi Radeon HD3870 DDR3 768MB but my father bought a NVidia 8800GTX DDR3 1024MB

anyway ATi Radeon is better than NVidia

Now that's even weirder. You hoped to have a card that is about 35% slower then the GTX (in Crysis and with AA off. ATi cards are better then nVidia cards when AA is on.) and complain that you got the beter card.

Oh, and actually. I don't believe you. The 8800 GTX's Memory Interface does not support 1024mb (384-bit, making 1024mb 2,66. Thus being impossible) of GDDR3 ;)

... :o

You're running a P3? So no XP I guess.. Some linux distro.

I am running XP, although I occasionally run a Linux LiveCD distro... XP kinda' hogged that rig's resources; Maybe if I try Xandros or get that lappy from the kid in my avatar... :dribble:
