    Hey, Malabooboo, you out there?

    Back on Topic.....lol.......if anyone is worried about
    Electro Static Discharge on Video cards;

    1.) DO Not hadle them by PCI/PGA connecting pins, and
    don't set them on cellophaned wrapped box's.

    2.)Never use magnetic tools/set them close to audio speakers....
    same as monitors.

    3.)Cover work area to be used with some kind of soft/safe
    material:foam/sponge pads that come with mobo's......myself,
    i use that rubbery webbed type shelf liner from 99cent store.

    4.)Be carefull when removing fan header plug, as some of cards
    caps are not re-solderable and must be super glued back on with
    intense focus of detail.

    5.)Have at least 1-2 extra vid cards on standby...lol.....too bypass
    human stupidity/Bad luck factor.

    6.)Save your sanity and pay worthwhile Tech to perform those
    mods/upgrades your not sure of/comfortable with.

    Suppose we should start New thread: Video Cards 101/?PC mods for those without a clue :eek: :confused: : peace2:

    HEY?!?!
    More crakin on the cluless ehh?
    Alright Nego and Dyrad,
    I get what you are saying, sorry if I sounded short tempered, its just that I have researched many other sites and stuff. I thought the point of this forum is for those who know what they are doing to help those with out a clue. Maybe one day I myself will be telling some nub the best way NOT to mess up their equipment.
    In short, I apreciate the help.
    Besides, there is no such thing as a stupid question anyway right?
    my view on the two party system...

    That's cool m8 it's just that this place is unlike any other forums around the world that I know of and most of us are certifiablely 's but usually once a thread has reach a conclussion around here it either dies or goes off topic (choice usually up to the author). But if someone else wants to use the same thread then that's fine but we sometimes like to keep yourselves occupied while waitin' for the next question. :devil win

    I thought the point of this forum is for those who know what they are doing to help those with out a clue.
    I think what the point is that when people ask questions that have been answered all over the web is a waste of time for a knowledgeable person to answer those questions. Especially when there are people with questions whose answers are not readily available.
    (Note that I do not consider myself a knowledgeable person on this subject)

    Further more, it is nearly impossible for a forum member to write an as in-depth and thorough post as someone who has spent many days writing a multi-page article. So the information you’re getting is not even as good.

    When you’re talking about basic “how to”s one should first look for information about how to do it. Then if you can't find any through either thorough browsing or thorough google searches. In that case then post something like,

    I've been searching everywhere for information about x but have had no luck finding anything. Could someone pleased tell me how or where I might find information about x.

    But it's best to have read anything you can find even related to the subject because it is blatantly obvious for people who know about this stuff when someone hasn't done much research. And it is also a bit unfair to ask others to do your work for you.

    Edit: Dang it Wiggo! Ya need to wait for my first edit at least before you can make fun of me. :p
    Hopefully this is now readable. :D
    Someday I would like to become knowledgeable so that I could do penance for all the stupid questions I have and have yet to ask.
