Posting spree!

Norcent is on a posting spree! 5 posts without a reply!






Yes eVGA is a good company, I only use eVGA.

7900GT KO Superclocked for a $250-300 budget is an excellent choice.

What? You bought Windows?


...



Why?


See this is what irritates me. People like you could have a 7900GT if Windows wasn't so freaking expensive.

If you were a Linux user, you could have a 7900GT. Guess that's just too bad for you.

Did you buy the RETAIL version of Windows at the store or something? You could have bought an OEM Version online for like $90.
