Yeah, but newegg doesn't care any. And from what I understand the v1 is fine, the OCZ v2 has the problems, but thanks.

so it was my duty to shut him up and speak up..

so i told him.. well, i just got me an intel core i7 overclocked to 3.0ghz which is a quad core with 8 threads!! and 2 gtx260's!! and 3gb ddr3 ram!!

dude looked at me like i was crazy.. had no idea what he was talkinga bout..

so this other lady standing next to him is like... WOW... thats a great computer... lemme guess yuo play games!! cuz my son works at EA!

I know some people like that. They think stuff that was good 3 years ago is still on the cutting edge.

I was talking with some about overclocking and I mentioned how the E8500s would do well over 4.5ghz with adequate cooling. One of them looks at me like I am a idiot and with a proud look on their face says that they have a 3ghz amd dual Core that would own a 4.5ghz E8500. I was so shocked by the ignorance of that statement I had trouble thinking of a response.

One of my customers wanted to know the exact weight of one of our laptops to the exact gram... and when i said i didnt have that information he told me to go check with the manager and/or look it up.

Yeah he thinks his 7900GT is pretty hard core huh? Same guy who claimed his Prescott was better than my Opty 165 and who went through 3 crappy psu's, one of which took out his motherboard at a lan party.
