Needless to say it's a refund job :p


You?

My power supply is insufficient to run my rig with the additional Drive and controller card I just added, so I had to unplug drives to play anything...
I'm putting off buying a new power supply, because I kind of want to down size my case at the same time so it fits better into my new armoire, looking forward to the drop in large screen prices, so I can hopefully mount a large LCD in it...

It would fit a 32" screen perfectly.

but I need to find a case that's under 17" and there's not a huge selection...

I knew someone that had this problem.

They built up huge arms from holding the case into a fan while gaming. Perhaps that hard solder mod from 750 to 1G was not so smart after all. Five years ago already gee!

Some people think "New Cats Out - time to upgrade!" has a different meaning.

That's quite an ESD nightmare if you ask me. Perhaps the cat is low static because the silica gel kitty litter dried his furry tush off? I dunno.
