feeling sad, Sky bought my ISP.  Be* is about gone so have accepted Skys super cheap BB offer (£7.50 a month unlimited including line rental) but i just know they are going to be utterly awful. their estimate is 2.6 to 7mbit down!!!!

 

 

any one on here use Sky?  just how bad is it?

Average 25 down/ 10-15 up. As I said a few pages back, I would get my full speed over wireless, then bam. One month later, >100 ping and 2Mbs max.

ahh i went with the Asus M5A97 EVO R2.0

 

tbh i should i suppose have gone with the 8320 but just cant see what the point in 8 cores is.  only reasen i too the 6 is because the 4core one had dramaticaly less L3 cache.   bugger all multithreads properly still so not sure of the benefits of them all.

I was going to get the 8xxx series but I couldn't for my bro. The 8xxx was on sale for the same price too! :(

The sale for the 8xxx happened AFTER I bought the 6xxx and I didn't have any more time. Plus my mobo didn't support it as it was only 95W support and the 8xxx was 125W

Nice nice


Xpost from anime thread

 

ust got the OCZ Vertex 450 in today. This is going into my bro's computer. Note the 'I LOVE(OCZ) my SSD' sticker they include.

 

 

 

And now, I made a new battlestation to watch movies with. I'm back home, and this is my new room. My bed is to the left of the picture. This is my brothers old room. My bro took my 'old' room because it was awesome and had the Gallant setup. I don't mind. I'm here rarely now anyways.

 

 

 

 Code Geass Movie 1 is playing :D

 

 There are mounted lights :D

 

 

Anyways, about to take a shower and marathon some anime.

 

I have my HDD hooked up with over 60 FULL anime series and movies on it :D, not to mention my home download is 35-55Mb/s so I can still easilly get good downloads past that.

 

Tonight is gonna be a good night

 

Oh, and I got a paintball gun. It's my Christmas gift. Parents got me the wrong one, so we'll be returning the POS gun for a Tipman 98 tomorrow :D

Please tell me you do not watch One Piece lol. Nice setup. I have a 24" Asus on my wall, same mount I think lol. If anyone has any recommendations to a cheap 25ft hdmi cable that will work without any artifacts..

 

One Piece, Bleach, and Naruto are the plague. Damn I hate Naruto so much, I wish they would end it so I wouldn't have to read the manga anymore xD

Bleach, Naruto and One Piece are the Holy Trinity of mainstream white-washed anime known to mankind; as such your average uninformed hillbilly is likely to known about at least one of them. This in turn explains their widespread popularity around the globe and the author's/producer's pandering to the lowest common denominator, causing anime fans and weeaboos alike to deem them unworthy.

Just my 2
