Sounds like he has an E-PENIS Issue there.
I think your freind is trying to compensate for some thing there as I don't know of any board that will take 6Gb of Ram and have SLi.

And why you need 6Gb of ram when Windows Xp only sees at the most 4Gb.

I was so confused yet baffled I just said oh, that's cool... and that was it.
Surfing the internet for "FREE PORN" is the one of the best ways to get viruses and adware. I find that you are more likely to get adware from that. Lost count the number of times I had to clean up my house mate's computer just becoz of his porn addiction, however he's too tight to use is credit card online for those services.
And the guy really did not know how to deal with news groups or P2P clients, which IMHO is one of the best ways to get free porn and keeping adware and viruses down to a mininium.

However, with that being said, Adware does take up your system resources. Therefore your computer will need to work harder to do what you want it to do. Therefore more heat.

Though, you could buy a server mobo that has dual processor support and 8GB RAM support... [trails off daydreaming]
But how many server board out there support 2x Video Cards?
I am assuming that this tosser is running SLi.

God help us if we're going to start talking crap and saying stupid jokes like:

E-PEN!S and Computers get sexually transmited deseases. They are really getting old.

More than likely this guy is just making this up as a joke. If not, he just sleeps with his computer. END OF STORY! LOL
