Default Omfg, It Worked! The New Vid Card Worked!


The freezing was diagnosed as so many different problems, and yet, it was what I suspected from the very start. Malfunctioning video card.

OMG, finally...I'm gonna sleep good tonight...

Cool, can definitely feel ya there when something works

Just got my nf4 ultra-D and 6800GT PCI-E in my system after taking out the n3 ultra-D and 6800GT AGP, set up the water cooling, leak tested.....moment of truth!!! POWER BUTTON OMG WHAT WILL HAPPEN!......the refreshing single beep of a system telling you it's going to POST had to promise to god I'd give $10 to my friend to give to the church he goes to ....meh whatever....and yes I literally mean in I sat here and said 'ARIGHT LOOK....I"LL GIVE $10 TO THE CHURCH IF YOU JUST LET THIS BOOT UP WITHOUT A PROBLEM'

Would it have booted up without the $10!!?!?! The world may never know.......
