Look, as I said before, it's not a personal thing with me. But your online personality is a bit annoying. What makes it annoying is you SUSPECT everyone is envious of your rig, when really.. they're not. At least not most of us. There are lots of individuals in here with killer rigs or who've had them. You're not talking with a bunch of scrubs here.
I've built custom watercooled SLI rigs from scratch, so I'm obviously not envious of your store-bought H20. Nor am I envious of your 280s since I'm coming from a CrossfireX rig with 4 GPUs that was faster than what you have.
I'm not saying that to brag but to offer you some perspective. Most people are not envious or irritated by your rig. It's the way you like to shove your possessions in front of us as if we're all supposed to drool over them like bloodhounds that's annoying. An ounce of humility would be a welcome change. You'd get a lot more praise with a change of attitude.
I know I'm not your dad, but that's my advice. Take it or piss on it, your choice.
I never was really trying to present it in that manner. If you take a look back you will notice that I really have not posted anything on post your rig 2008 for months. I finally redid it and posted it and was proud of it. I had to remove the 8800 Ultras and tubing alone and redo the entire system over. I could build anything if I wanted to but didn't since I've got the blackbird case. Just take a look back on the rig section it's been ages since I've posted my entire computer system on there.
