Double crap. That's not cool when you can't even really play. I was scared a little, too, because I haven't built a new comp for like 3 years, maybe 3 and 1/2. This one was groovy then, the 3 to 6 month envy of all my pals, but now? 3 years on a comp without major upgrades (I have only replaced the board and the cpu, even the video card is the Radeon 9800 which was the bomb back then, but now?) its like saying I mow the lawn the lawn with these awesome scissors I made while your neighbor screams by on some lawn tractor hog. It's very cool, though, to see the way folks in this forum actually try to help, seriously try, not just chucking standard "Is it plugged in?" lines at folks requesting assistance with issues. You don't find that everywhere.
