    She says as much time as I spend with my computer I shouldn't wonder why she has a "headache" half the time!!!
    I just built her a new computer yesterday, in about an hour and I didn't even get a thanks. Whats the first thing she did, PLAY SOLITAIRE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Why do I waste my time even building her a computer? @?@ ?@? I should buy her one of those hand held jobbers and give her damn computer to my Sister and save me a lot of trouble.

    Solitaire and e-mail once a week. Of course she gets all my "downgrades" from when I upgrade. Or I say something broke in her computer, so I can upgrade mine.....heeee heee.
    It works both ways...

    I love being single...makes things so much simpler

    just say she 'needs' RAID and give the new HDD to your sis...your wife will never know the difference ;)
    I've gone too far and need to move on!

    Thanks, I already tagged em' all.
    I really need to find one someone doesn't need or is just getting rid of cheap since they upgraded and they originally had a 10 gig or something.

    Stay away from the rage 128! It's too old and slow for anything. Also stay away from tnt as well, same thing. r7000 is really slow as well. Don't bother with cheap sis stuff either. And no pci, that would make no sense. Thats like restricting a firehose's flow to a mc donalds straw.
    If you are on an ultra tight budget, this link or something like an oem radeon9000 64mb for like $90 cdn would serve the purpose without really sucking. Personally, I would go the r9000 route as it is quite modern and not that expensive at all. But the asus card in the link is quite tempting.
    The link is to a reputable store that ships to the u.s. (thats a real good price and its the pro core)
