    david, on purpose not mentioning your videocard right ?
     
  8. Yo Ice Cold, don't be sad about your system. If you work for what you have and that's all you can afford then don't worry about it you're doing the best you can. I just laugh when I hear all these people talking about their 1Ghz+ systems and how they're gonna get a GeForce3, but in the age section of The Guru's Pub, I saw a lot of yougster's in there that you know don't have any jobs. Mommy and Daddy hook them up with whatever they want. I mean I have a PIII 1Ghz right now with a GeForce2GTS, and I will buy a P4 Northwood system, and a GeForce3 as soon as Creative releases their version. But the thing is I worked hard to get a good job. I work for everything I buy and no matter how good it is, or how far behind it is I feel good about it and I'm proud of it. So don't let someone else's system get you down as long as you're doin what you can. Peace

    i live on my own with my fiance. I have ever since i was 18. i been workin' at a steady job for the past 4 yrs. i rake in good coin. 40hr weeks, time and half on saturdays and double time on sundays but overtime is optional. my parents have never bought anything for me, nor would i expect or want them too. i do get pissed off at the "kids" who's daddy's buy them everything. i've worked very hard for my system and anything else i've bought for myself or fiance.<br>

    I tend to agree. I'm very lucky in that my Parents offer to purchase stuff for us. Myself and the Girlfriend, live together. I work my tail off and make okay money, she does okay too. I've budgeted and saved to buy this thing, and the upcomming gf3. When my parents do offer to buy us stuff, I turn them down. I have two older sisters. One is independant the other... My feeling is I'm going to do it on my own. The people I work with tell me I have it made, and stuff like that but I gotta say they are messed up.

    What a shift in topics, from crappy computers to mummy's boys to independent survival.<br>
    <br>
    Ok, guess i'll cover all 3, recently i still had a amd300 with a voodoo1... ok, even with a cable modem i was getting owned by HPB's on servers because my comp would just freeze when ppl started firing at me and ppl would give me crap like LPB when i ended up owning them instead. But this is one you CANNOT top, my friend has a Pentium 75!!! Beat that! He has had the same comp since yr8, like 6 yrs ago and when he plays TFC, he has to play on a lil tiny assed screen about the size of 4 inches by 3 inches (dunno what res it is, but its just ridiculous) So, stop complaining all of you <br>
    <br>
    As for the mummy's boys out there, you guyz seriously need to be dropped in some 3rd world country for a month or something to get some senses back (ok, so there are some guys who know how to treat their money out there, but not too many from the ones i know)<br>
    <br>
    Unlike some of those other guyz posted, i'm not as independent as you guyz. I'm not successful enough to live alone so i give you my respect. However, ever since i was 15 (so 4yrs now) i've stopped asking parents to buy me anything, apart from maybe school books. During the last few school years i was living on a $15/month USD allowance, which was not enough but i managed. Now in uni, i earn about $45 USD/week and everything from food, transport, fees (cable, mobile etc.), and uni books are all covered by myself, minus living and eating at home thats. Even this somewhat crappy computer of mine (duron 700 etc. etc.) i had to save up a whole year to buy by myself.

    What I do is buy used computer parts from work take them home build computers sell them and use the money to pay for my computer habit.I just sold 2 this week and then went 60 miles to get my new burner & DVD player & another 256 megs of ram now im at 500 meg of ram and just about have my new system done.All that is left is waiting for the price of the IBM 75 gig hard drives to go down and grab one Then my dream system will be done..

    you drove 60 miles? Man I cant remember the last time I bought computer related hardware from a store. It is too expensive. I buy everything online. No sales tax. Shipping is usually free over 100$ which is good. thanks to <A HREF="http://www.pricewatch.com" TARGET=_blank>www.pricewatch.com</A> its real easy to find the LOWEST price.
