    I am just a worthless liar. I am just an imbecile.
    I will only complicate you. Trust in me and fall as well.
    I will find a center in you. I will chew it up and leave.
    I will work to elevate you just enough to bring you down.

    No no no, the X1600pro is pure shet.

    Can't even handle games that came out this year too well.

    $120 bucks seems a fair price for it, because I saw it somewhere else for $150 CAD.
