Yea that was me years ago. Now I'm humble and just don't care. A friend of mine who is in his 30s when we go to LANs still talks about 3dmark scores and I'm like dude....grow up. I STILL have AMD fanboys trying to argue scores and benchmarks to me. The dick swinging in the PC world is just as bad as car guys. Domestic vs import, Ford vs Chevy, rice vs muscle, whatever. It's all stupid. I love my rig as much as the next guy but I have learned not to bloat about what I have. If people ask then I'll tell them.
As recent as 4 years ago I used to care about small stuff like all that. I blew a ton of money between a good friend and I. It's the reason I went Intel to begin with. Now I have a dead phase change in my storage building because of it, couple of dead 280s and a dying one, a burnt eVGA P55 board, and I was broke for about 6 months to recoup. Dumbest **** ever lol. We were too busy about outdoing our 3dmark scores and trying to put records on hwbot.org. I got fed up and decided to trade my custom phase unit for an LN2 tank and arm while Kingpin was going to hook me up with a pot for cheap. My phase unit got screwed up in shipping, UPS ****ed me about getting my money back to me, I didn't get the tank, and he moved to tri-SLI 470s and an i7 920 setup under chilled water. That's when I said, I'm out. My gas station job can't keep up
