The last time she griped about it, I spent 10 minutes telling her about how much money my boss has into his 57 Belair build, and told her I was thinking about building a hot rod. She hasn't said much about my computer stuff in the last 6 months.

Yeah, those cars can hurt.
Did a 67 Cutlass 350 Rocket till I got in trouble...
Mind you, I made 10k on that one :)

No one understands, that sometimes you gotta spend money to make it.

I give most of my stuff to my dad, or some young people who can't afford to game but want to. Half the point of having stuff or money is to give it away

Yeppers....I'm in a moral delimma now. My dad has a bad machine...I am not sure if its PSU or RAM, or mobo. I think its the PSU, but its hard to figure out since he is in NF and I am in Ontario...want to send him a PSU...if I thought for sure it would work then I would, but I might have to send him a whole machine which I can't afford to do, especially since I just upgraded my 260 to a 285. I could trade my PSU to a fellow HWC member to meet my needs, but then I would have to buy another for the old man, and I refuse to send him a crap PSU (I refuse to build any machine without a top-quality PSU). Trying to decide if I should just get the most future-proof PSU I can find and send him my 550VX

*cough* Ultra *cough*

Haven't Failed me yet :)
I know, I know....We had this discussion already lol!
Actually, that 400W corsair is a underestimated unit.

Did a Build for a co-worker using it, and it powered more than I expected it too.
