It's hard enough to understand what he's saying in the first place without even thinking about any subtext he attempts to put in his posts.

a while back i had a little chat with a chap who was supervising what goes where,ok hes not the big guy but still, and he was mentioning what they can do on 'low' end psu's for cheap 500 bucks or that area puters..

dont ask how, but ive seen some of them run 8800/9800 cards with ease lol. those things are built like tanks, and are probably underexagerating there specs.

Dude lets all calm down and back away.
Otherwise dan or me or someone else will say the same thing about you....as the amount of pretentiousness that oozes from your posts is almost palpable yet no one minds as it takes all kinds.... even those who thinks he is always the smartest one in a "room' and talks to others like they are idiots....So please lets not go down this road. Um kay?

There are so many ways I could respond to that comment, but no, let's not go down that road.

Purple dots are a pretty common sign of artifacting in general.

Yeah, it's not so bad really, I just like to pretend that my soldier is tripping out while being shot at or something.


Livetime reg ftw. In 3 years if Nvidia does something cool I can RMA then :-p

Slightly off-topic but pretty interesting: How to transform GTX465 into GTX470.
It looks like it's applicable only for this first wave of GTX 465 and with reference design.
