Default Older gamer saying hello

well i just found you forum and thought id join and possibly help out with some pc nightmare that we all have from time to time. Im a 36r old gamer who falls in and out of love for gaming every once in a while. but normally return when a decent game comes out.

I have been "into" Pc gaming and Modding for some time and have just recently made the change from Nivida To Ati, im not quite sure if the right move yet. I have modded plenty of pc's in the past and have built full systems using custom water cool set ups.

Ive had my fair share of nightmares, BSD, CTD and BOOT FAILURES and normally can find my way around them without the use of a full re-install.

ive just half finished my latest pc, but thinking about changing a few bits, ill post pics later when im happy with it.

heres some of my last pc and the wifes i built

my old pc

My new Pc is

Intel i7 920
Asus rampage xtreme 11
6g coisar dominator 1600mhz
2x 4890
1000w olymipa psu
24 asus monitor
2x 74g raptors
150g raptor

anyway ill help out if i can on issues regarding mobos gpu's ect

ive been through 3 strikers extremes, 2x evga 780i and 790i, plenty of gpus 8800gts , ultras, 6800's 6600gts ect ect ect

sorry about the size of the pics

Welcome to the forums.
What's wrong with BSD? What is CTD? Why are the motherboard and graphics card not plugged in in your old PC.

There are in order of increasing severity: lies, darn lies, statistics, and computer benchmarks. - diskinfo man page
