Oddly enough i have a sort of similarly odd story, an electrician came by the house to fix a fuse panel that blew, when he left - for whatever reason my stove range stopped working, but if i turn the nobs on the stove it turns lights on and off all over the house, and the oven nob works as a dimmer..


I SWEAR TO GOD its true, the electrician did not believe me till he came to my house; said he's been in the business 21 years and has never seen such a thing... I dunno what he did when he replaced my fuse panel but god damn it was pretty funny to try and cook and chicken and watch every light in the house go on and off as i turned the knobs up!
LOL. Did he just put your stove in series?

Ok.....Read-em and weep, you girly men.

This little baby has to keep her clothes on because if I let you look under her skirt, you'd be following her like
dogs in heat. There's little if anything I cannot do on this veritable power house. From spread sheets, to email,
shes' got it covered!

Upgrades? Who needs them. When you start at the top of the technological heap, you never get stale. Only
part I've ever had to replace was the riser card. It damned near took the whole damned house when it went.
Yes sir she's a might powerful. Good thing the card only cost 1286.00. Course that's not including the cost of
recharging my three fire extinguishers, and the water damage to the family room...oh.....and I had to buy a
new desk. A small price to pay for being on the vanguard. For being one of the chosen...one of the elite.

LOL......I'm really sorry I know how offensive this avatar is, but I just cannot help myself.

Anyhow there's some damned fine cases here. Some great work by lowfat with the individually sleeved cables. Very nice lowfat.
MorePower...that is a work of art. reminds me of an oriental garden with everything perfectly in place.
Here's a link to a site some of you might already be familiar with. If you haven't been to this site you might want to put your bib on before you access.

MILLION-DOLLAR-PC [MDPC] | the world's most beautiful computer systems

Nice stuff! As someone mentioned, they ended up sitting down and going through all 90 or so pages in one sitting. Once I got started I did the same. Couldn't help myself

Heh... update on this.....

Just had a look at my first MB review here and noticed that I paid $300 for my chip, and that prices dropped to $250 the week after.... ;)

Baaahahhaha! How did you get a pair of 5870's to fit in there? Is there a model with three integrated monitors for Eyefinity support?
I almost spit my beer out....... almost.
