WOOoooOOOOoOo

My replacement GPU came in today. I've been using one borrowed from a friend while I waited for the EVGA RMA process. (Thanks friends) It was a retired card that was well past its prime but it held up in SCII when I set the graphics very low. Well, wish me luck with the replacement process, I have to shut down my computer and pull it apart again.

Question of the Day:
Have you ever built a computer?

  1. Good luck!

    Yes I have built a few computers. I usually centered them around the graphics card instead of the processor. So I would buy case, fans, and everything to get the best airflow on the GPU, while just making sure I was using the best possible heatsink and arctic ice for the CPU. I liked having a really solid PSU as well.

    I was going to build another the last time I needed to upgrade, but I compared parts prices to buying a higher end Asus gaming laptop, and I ended up getting the laptop because it was cheaper and one portable unit.
