    My only gripe with 8GB sticks is how expensive they still are, especially if you desire high frequency and perhaps low CAS latency RAM.

    I could make a picture of my case but tbh, right now you can't really see anything on that.

    The keyboard is temporary, i've just run out of money for this month

    Maybe not too OT but anyone got/looking to get the logitech G600? I've preordered mine(sadly not released here yet) and from what I've read about it and whatnot it seems pretty good.

    Maybe, after this naga dies. I already can't reliably scroll a selected way (sometimes at random goes to the opposite way).
    But i do intend to use it for a little longer..

    I've considered getting a naga, but after hearing multiple accounts of the naga having crap build quality and just breaking very quickly so I pre-ordered the logitech.

    It may well be different over there, but here a kit of 16GB (2x8GB) cost twice as much as its equivalent 8GB (2x4GB) kit...

    Actually, just looked up the Corsair Vengeance LP Black sticks in 4GB and 8GB versions. Some things are less than double the price, some are double, some are a little more. How confusing and annoying. I'm so used to the whole "buy more and save!!!" ideology.

    Weird, so b0sanac has the same wallpaper and a close real life friend of mine has the same speakers. I swear, they are bloody quiet and could use some more volume to them, don't you think?

    Yeah that's quite the coincident. Well the speakers are kind of cheap, only use them for some radio and watching series really.

    Aside from the insane level of buyers remorse initially...I'm pretty happy.

    Just ordered one of these





    Had to send my old HD6970 back under warrenty as it was faulty (power and fan issues), they gave me a £225 refund on the £240 card that I got last october ish, so then I decided to get an upgrade, equivlant Radeon (HD7970) was more expensive and the old one breaking left a bad taste, so decided to give an Nvidia type card another go, last time I did that was a Geforce 7900GT! (which died on me and turned me towards ATI/AMD).


    A few new games coming out are already enough to put the HD6970 to its knees, namely Project CARS - Perhaps the best looking game ever.

    Nice card, the Windforce X3 cooler is really good (and quiet too).
