Sounds like fun.

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hi! I'm Ian. I recently built a computer that I rather fancy. It's my first, and it was way too easy. I call it Project_I. I=Roman numeral 1 and my first initial (clever, eh?).
I haven't done much modding or overclocking yet. I'm here to learn where to start.
The rig has been tested with as many as 1 game, and was able to play with high settings, plus a little extra! Therefore, I am most satisfied.

I'm not normally involved in the whole forum scene, but there's a thread that insisted I register. I have some knowledge and questions, so I figure I could try to get involved. Not only that, but I work overnights ATM, and have much spare time now.

Haha! They should put that in the titlebar! I see myself going down this road real fast. Even though I've already built this rig I still find myself price checking new parts.
