What was it? Whether it was a packet of chips, a video game, a CD, a magazine, a gun, a flower, a yacht or an island, post it here.

My most recent purchase was a CD - Dream Theater's "Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence".

    Dashing, what are the exact dimensions of that case?
    The case is the Cooler Master HAF XB

    The dimensions are:

    442(W) mm x 330(H) mm x 423(D) mm

    Or, in AMERICAN:

    17.4 (W) inch x 13 (H) inch x 16.7 (D) inch

    Can apparently fit up to three 334mm / 13.1 inch graphics cards in three-way SLI/Crossfire just fine.

    Why do I spend the money. What's wrong with me.

    So, errrr, how many of your games have you managed to stuff in your nose already? If the answer is one or more, I'd have a suggestion as to what's wrong with you.

    Jelly! I'm so jelly. Too bad we will not get this edition here.

    The Steam version's still on sale (for another 12 hours or so), so I thought "what the hell?"
  • Civilisation Brave New World- I was a bit unsure on whether or not to get it but it was 50% off on Amazon to get a Steam Key and it looks like a good investment...

    I have something someone is jealous of besides my Ness sculpture, deku shield, and boxed copy of Gabriel Knight? YAY

    A Nvidia GeForce 8300 GS graphics card.

    It's the same card I've been trying to upgrade from for a couple years, it's a piece of shit, it's five years obsolete, and I had to buy one used (apparently parted out from a working machine sold at auction), but it's the only card I know for certain works in my machine without having to resurrect Avistew's graphics card thread to ask you guys for help, and it was only $30.

    I hope this works out for you. Your budget/PSU//motherboard combo are not easy to work with, graphics card-wise. I wish I could have snuck a bit more power in there, but you're already hitting a ceiling and perhaps when you do have a more generous budget you should start considering doing a build from scratch.

    As for me....

    I did actually buy this to let me use the front two USB 3.0 ports on the front of my new computer case. I also bought:

    80mm case fan, two of them.

    image

    120mm case fan

    image

    200mm case fan

    I'm pretty sure I just spent more on case fans than Guru spent on a graphics card.
