Default Re: Gaming Comp Buy

hey guys, lets get this straight, I have an AGP8X MOTHER BOARD!
I cannot get 2 6600GTs, and I can't spend $300 on a 6800GT, a 6600GT is half the price, so i'm going to get that.
At this point, I don't care about 256 MB, 128 is fine.
but I do get your point, the 6800GT is a wild card, it's more expensive than the 6600GT for a reason.

But hey, thanks for the info anyway, lol
When I actually get a job, i'll definatly be getting some real gaming hardware.
(being a teen with no job or allowance and all, getting even a 6600GT will be hard.)

yeah, and unfortunatly, it will be years before I can get a job.
in the past 3 months, I made a measily $40, thats it.
hell, by the time I have enough to buy what the 6600GT costs now, it will probably be $100 or less.
in fact, I don't even know why i'm talking about this here at all.
i'm not going to have money any time soon, so I guess i'll just shutup and stop dreaming, I wont get it any faster.
