AHA!, now i see the meaning!, thanks mate

get yourself a small locker where you can put money in. then put the money in it, with a note on top saying something like "you're not going to spend this money are you?"

everythings on atm.. which makes it harder... and i think i may just sit on the money, go back to my original idea, of another 6800 gs, or a 7800 gt, going sli later.. i need to do some more studying before i buy anything more... i'm so indecisive.. i definitely have the money to do any of the above i've stated.. its just, do i want to, we shall see friday

hrmm i did some more review.. and the 6800 series seems to get owned by the 7800 series at higher resolutions.. i want to play with 8x AA and 16xAF, so i think dual 6800's are out of the question... dual 7800 gt's and dual 7800gtx's are only about 100-200 points away from each other on 3d mark.. so definitely not going for dual 7800 gtx's... i think i shall buy the gt's.. those scored 10,981 on 3dmark05 (1024x768, no af or aa.. which is how everyone does it anyway). that review was right here http://techreport.com/reviews/2005q3...t/index.x?pg=8

and i'm sure with high overclocking i can hit high 11,000's maybe even 12,000's.... i think i have found my winner.. i just ordered the hard drive today.. at 2:30 am with rush processing, so they should it here wednesday... they were out of the 36.7 gb raptors, so i'll have to do with a WD 250 gb 16mb cache for now.. which is why i brought up the topic of transfering windows... i'll want to put windows onto the raptor once i get it....
