    Okay not to sound crazy but how many of you went out and camped at BestBuy last night??? I DID!!!!

    i was wondering how poeple did in there sprees, i am going to plug in a ATI 9600 today and run it through the tests... i also will be messing with four new 120 gig hard drives... only $50 each... hehehehehe it was fun.... anyway obviosly different places equals different stores (kind of) and different prices, i am somewhat curios if anyone got any outragous deals etc... i also got a DVD burner and i will be reflecting on it's qaulity when i can... and a 1000 (don't know what unit of measure) backup unit that says it will power my computer for 30 minutes or more... (i laugh at this, but we will see)


    And happy thanksgiving...

    (one day late lol)

    yeah you wish you were a crazy american don't ya

    yeah poeple were grabbing lots of the ram, i got a whole box, it is only 2100, but ya know what, my clients will buy it just as they will buy a 3200 and never now the difference because they are mainly old folks... (70+) hehehehe

    any way i think the day was productive, i am going to compare the ATI 9600 against a ATI 8500 Radeon All-In-Wonder card... see what happens... hehehe

    the 8500 is an older card. unless u want the aiw features, it's not really that good

    well i understand the the fact that it is old, but there is simply the fact that the 9600 is not XT or PRO so it is a close race, and older PRO equivelent card versus a new reg card...
