Need something that will not freak out when I breath wrong. Old 6850 is dying a slow death. Wife does photoshop all day and I need a better card for that, not to mention when I'm gaming it would be nice to not have to set the settings to all medium to play on a single screen.
I will do 2 things, I will place the card (hopefully Poseidon) in a custom water block, bios mod it if necessary to unlock voltage, place it in my buddies dual processor SR-2 rig and OC it's guts out.
After getting several gold medals on hardwarebot, i'll replace the bios with the stock bios and replace my computer's 8800 gts.
wow suck an old card you say, yup.
here's what I got for the season.
sold my desktop for 2400, was going to go to hawaii and watch my bro's wedding. Complications and a eventual surgery prevented me from going. after a fight with the airlines i got back about half of what I invested. I recovered and just as I was saving up money to replace this spare part computer I got laid off on the 9th of December, just after my b-day.
So my parts money is once again gone and any help I can get to get me jump started would be sweet. One buddy is getting me a case, another a hard drive, a Video card would mean the world.
Thanks for the consideration, and may everyone have a happy x-mas with your loved ones, because sometimes family is all you got.
