Hola Mi Amigos

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Over the past few months I've been very interested in the entire "building a computer" aspect.

The specs listed in my signature aren't the computer I'm using. I have all but one of the parts to it (the HDD, the F3). The computer I'm using right now would probably get me shunned/banned for being so incredibly horrid.

Months ago, I didn't know a single thing about specs, I recall thinking that my chipset driver version number was my graphics card or something completely wrong.

However, now, after lurking the forums for months, I gladly say that I am much more knowledgeable and I actually find this stuff interesting!

My weak spots are overclocking and anything driver related.

I hope to learn more about these by lurking the forums further.

That is all! Thanks for making/being such an awesome and interesting community!

Welcome, overclocking can be tough depending on the chip but drivers are pretty easy as long as they work.

When you say 'chip' does that refer to my GPU?

Thanks! I'll probably PM you eventually. --I assume-- like all first timers, I'm scared of damaging my components by overclocking it too much.

Thanks everyone.

I have a question though.

I've been searching around on the forums and I even read the "Official Forum Folding War" thread but my question remainds: What is the Forum Folding War?

I've read the thread but it only provides rules as to what it is and the specifics as to the teams et cetera.

It sounds fun and I might be interested but I have no idea what it is.

EDIT: Nevermind, I just found the FAQ thread on Folding and my questions have been answered.
