oh I quite agree! 1 post and it's "enter me" shouldn't count! 2 posts should be okay though!

Why I entered? Because the 5800 Ultra is faster than my 9600XT and I would not mind owning the biggest flop in modern computer graphics history.

I know, I know. I am a newbie to this forum (post wise). I have actually been visiting this forum since it probably started. So far, all you guys have been able to answer just about any questions/problems people have had. Anyways I don't expect to win the contest anyways. Just wanted to enter just in case.

I could use an upgrade for my Ti4200. It's choking on Painkiller when tons of monsters on the screen.
