Default Friends Computer (another stupid DELL story)

My Friend thinks he knows everything and he bought a new computer a month ago. He said this "im just gonna buy the cheapest dell with a P4 and upgrade it". i told him "dont and just build your own and i will even help you" but being the smartass he is he went ahead and bought the dell. now all he has to upgrade is PCI and AGP slots and no PCI-E. He still gonna buy a 6600GT thinkin its gonna be even with my 7800GT when i build my new system. and im not gonna tell him that he can put that card in his computer cause he dont have any PCI-E. Im gonna laugh so freakin hard when he buys it from somewhere like circuit city or best buy, rips it open, opens his case and realizes the dumbass he is for not doing his homework.

would anyone like a picture of the look on his face when he realizes he just wasted about 200$ (how much it is at local store) on a card he cant return adn dont work on his computer.

Hey its not mean if he refuses to listen. Let him be "smart" nd he will realize how dumb he really is.

It won't even boot the 6600GT or it will crash later. The cheap PSU won't be able to handle it.
