Broke off the plastic thingy that "holds in" the gpu on the pci.x16 port.

Not that you really needed it, only if you ship your computer a lot.

Mine's gotta be when I was a kid, I got suckered into buying a gtx 7500 LE, little did I know, The LE stood for Light edition... oh yah and at the same time, I thought that because it was a dual core it would be fast.
 

That was the motivation that started me to get into tech/pc. Had to learn all about cpu's and gpu's because I didn't wanna get ripped off when I replaced those two shitty parts.

I break those off on purpose these days, except for the more modern push down type with wings :D


I roll with sigs off so I have no idea what you're advertising.

 

This is NOT the signature you are looking for.

Is it weird that I haven't really had a noob moment? I guess I just think over stuff more than the average person.

Getting a laptop thinking it would perform very good as its a i7 and it's a quad core! After 2 years and knowing more than 10x the knowledge I had prior to the time I purchase my laptop. I feel so noob :( it cost so much too. With that amount I could run games at 1080p with stable 40-60fps depends on the games! My laptop could only run games which demands so little for example DotA 2 at 20-30 fps at lowest settings.

Sorry for my bad English >.<
