no flaming in my thread!!!

lancec2c30 12-09-2006 06:59 PM

He isnt really flaming anybody, YET. Because nobody in the thread owns a 8800. lol

Well judging by the fact that my thread does not relate in any way shape or form to the 8800 series of nvidia gpu's and by the fact that someone only posted to say something negative about said gpu, and finally judging by the fact that in general one flames negative comments about something they do not like, I think it would suffice to say that COD2-fanatics' comment was in fact a flame.

Well now if you get all technical about it, sure. I wasnt all that serious about it.

Itll be a nice afternoons work getting everything together. Gotta rebuild the good ol water cooling loop.

So, ill be sure to take a bunch of pics. After this stuff, my computer will have cost me something like 14 or 15 hundred dollars. YIKES!
