I now *really, very* hate the Acer PC tower i had bought at Staples in August '08...
In a weird set of events, i decided to plug the "all new" TV pci card to check if cable would pop the signal on the PC... only to fry out the NVidia GPU to an halt!
Back on 7100/630i onboard VGA spoof and wouldn't you have guessed GC2 has now grinded to impossibly slow gaming speeds.
Anyone knows where i can find a 8600GS (since anything above won't fit the boringly limited 300W-PS either) to snap back in that silly PCIe slot... in Laval, Montréal, etc?
Yep, everyone stocks (Best Buy, Future Shop, Staples) superb 9500GT and sooooo much more red boxed ATIs similar to what just blew up my gear.
What next, the whole Mobo.
Junk me another afforbable gimmick, i'm just *fu**en fed up with Electronic outlets & stupid stores in Canada. All these people did was shove me a 900$+ PC that wracked up rootkits and viruses since installed, and a vid-card fan that stopped spinning.
No more modding, no more bamboo tablet stuff, no more DVI crisp graphics, totally wiped out. Clean.
Go ahead tax me, twice.
I'll bet Win-7 64bits is OEM'ed by the doors for school kids while DELL rackups the M&M colored portables for all to enjoy.
X-Worlds & CoSH are stopped.
