Hey guys! Well I have broken my system down; boxed it up and put it away in my closet. Man it makes me depressed just typing it. I will be retiring from the Air Force in 8 months. Between now and then I have a house that has projects that need to be done to sell it. As shocking as it may sound my computer was eating up way too much of my time and CRYSIS did not help any. Any way I will be back up and running from Vermont in August of 08. I'm not totally cut off; just from my gaming rig and will be on the forums of course. My rig will be way out of date by August I'm sure. It is a little relaxing not having to keep up with the race though. Take it easy!:D

10 months is nothing, don't worry, I didn't use my old computer for two years, then when I came home I found all sorts of surprises inside:lol:

Someone decided it would be great to put it out in the shed, what they didn't realize is that we live in Florida and that we have hurricanes:rofl

it still worked when I turned it on(had to replace Ti 4600), I gave it to my friend.

You'll need another 10 months just to catch up on all the games! Should be fun when you get back to it though, you'll have endless hours of amusement catching up.

Good luck, Eltigre88 and congrats on your retirement.

I'm selling my entire system. I'll be back some day with a whole new system, but not sure when that will be.

Thats kind of how I feel about my system too! If I sell I mite not be able to build it back up. I'd rather refresh it at a later date. I guess there are alot of people thinking of selling.

Not me :) I love my system and will love it more in november. My case has the sentimental value, I could give a **** less about the internal components I change them so much.

I would only sell the CPU and the video card, then get the latest quad core and NV card in 10 months. The other components will still be current in 10 months. Unless you think DDR3 will be relevant by then.

10 months does sound like a -long- time away from your gaming machine though. :)
