I don't think I'd click on a link to [t]ardOCP right now even if they had an exclusive with nVidia admitting to cheating! :mad:

No, no....nVnews has no boycott. It's strictly me own personal issues with [t]ardOCP I'm talking about here.

Sorry if I caused ya any angst, it's a perfectly good post on some news that hasn't hit this board yet...I just got issues with [t] and the BS going down there. :(

Gainward dramatically improved the looks since their 5800U, which I consider the ugliest card ever. :)

You didn't know about fan LEDs? Dang, I LOVE 'em! I swapped out Bubbles side fan for a tri-light and it not only looks cool as hell, it actually cools better & it's quiet! (And it was only $4!)

I'm looking to get about 4-5 more. 2-80s for Blue's chimneys (blue of course) and one 120 for her front (again, blue).

I'm still trying to decide what color to get for Bubbles chimney, her tri-light is red/green/blue & she has green cold cathodes in front....I'm thinking of going blue on top and then sticking a 120mm red one on the opposite side as her tri which is her back which butts up against the wall, it'll cast an evil red glow behind her.

It might seem a bit silly, but I can find me way around without the lights in me computer room now and I think it just looks NEAT! :)
