    Heey, we didn't make a thread like this yet? Let's do this.

    Best: project car

    Worst: car insurance from State Farm. Rediculous for an old car.

    Some of those as well
    Best: 4K monitor (my 780s get an honoury mention so that I can actually run games at native res)

    Worst: Torn between Aliens Colonial Marines and X:Rebirth. Think I'll go with the former since Rebirth at least has the decency to look nice.

    Best would probably be my new rig.

    Worst would be the money I wasted experimenting with different closed loop cooling. Just bought a custom loop now so next weekend shall be good - installing it and setting it up! Excitement!

    GTX760 Zotac AMP!
    BEST : Probably a book I picked up from a second hand bookshop one day. I recognised it for what it was and turned £2.50 into £160 in less than 24 hours.
    WORST : The GTX760 Zotac. Didn't read a single review beforehand, spent £20 more than most of the other brand GTX760's and found out after the purchase that they are no faster than the reference model, only a lot louder. Research next time...
