Ok so this week (not calender but 7 day span) is looking like its going to be a good one for me.
1. I got my GA Dog Tags yesterday ( 1 week earlier than expected) B-) i saw the package on the tabel i grabbed it and ran to my room to open them soo damn fast.
2. In a few days i should be getting my new comp with the following specs.


1 x Standard case with clear sidepanel (gona put 2 blue cold cathode tubes on the side)
1 x Intel Core2Duo E6600 CPU
1 x Seagate 320Gb SATA II HDD (buying another 1 in future)
2 x 1GB of DDRII 667Mhtz Ram
1 x Foxconn Motherboard (dont remember model but comes with 5 year warranty so should be ok)
1 x ASUS 16x DL-DVD Burner with lightscribe (got them sent to us by accident instead of the cheaper non lightscribe samsungs we normally get)
1 x Razer Diamondback LE Plasma edition (already have)
1 x Logitech G15 Gaming Keyboard
1 x LG 20" Widescreen LCD
1 x NVidia GeForce 8800GTS PCIe (the crappier of the 8800 series but its better than my 5700 atm)
1 x Leadtek DVB-1000 Digital Tv Tuner
1 X Creative X-Fi Soundcard


And windows xp home untill i find a completely working cracked Vista Ultimate.


So with all that i will finally have a computer to put on my computer desk that i put together last december. B-)


so here is my desk atm and ill post updated pic when i get comp.


1 = Georgio Armani Aqua Di / Pier cardin aftershaves / Lynx Deoderant
2 = Box For my Casio Exlim (the camera i used to take this pic)
3 = Playboy Edition Zippo Lighter
4 = My PSP Boxes (1 Japanese 1 Australian If you hack your psp you'll know why)
5 = Nintendo DS Lite Case (in white baught 1 week before the black ones were announced im soo pissed)
6 = My Shotglasses. Samboka , Vodca , cheap red wine, Jim Beam stubby holder (given to me randomly by an actuall jim beam girl ) and corona B-)
7 = Stack of blank Cd's / DVD's
8 = My Siamese fighting fish (the red one thats ment to be in the left side died and is in the process of being replaces)
9 = MY PPGA Dog tags B-)


So what you guys think of my setup / week so far / comp specs ?

This is exactly what has been going on through the entire thread, and it's not the first time either.
You come to us for advice..you just spell out what you want to get, and then ask us if it is okay, and we have to explain why it isn't. That's the world upside down.. If you would just say 'hey guys, I have an X amount of money, what should I buy?' Then this would be over in 2-3 posts, not 2-3 pages.

Piracy is for failures.

Your mobo blows chunks and your ram is slow, other than that it looks pretty sweet.

edit: nice, moved already.

Don't really care for the desk and what's on it, if you want some ego-stroking there's a sticky for showing off here: http://www.purepwnage.com/forums/index.php...ic=130&st=0

I'd get a different mobo unless you plan to tell us what type it is. FOxconn makes good boards but there's not much we can say if you don't us more details icon_cool.gif

DDR2 667....Meh. K.

Rest looks good.

You can't legitimize stealing by explaining how you haven't stolen other things.

its not stealing its testing ( and i just read that microsoft even let you use vista for 30 days if you dont use a key when installing vista) so thats what im gona do.

+ i always intended to buy it but from the computers that ive built with vista so far have had issues with software / drivers so id want to make sure all my stuff works first.

Ok dude normally I am fine with piracy when it comes to development software that costs thousands of dollars but an OS is not that expensive and it is meant for consumers. That and if you want one thing to be working properly its the OS. Just go out and buy an OEM version of Vista Home Premium
It's better to be a pirate than to join the Navy.
