Happy New Year!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi all, forgot to stop here before asking questions in the forum.

All the best for 2012. Im moving to PC gaming as consoles aren't really keeping up these days, and because I got a cheap gtx 580 that I didn't have a home for. Did my best to get what I decided was the best for my budget, and instantly buggered up the stock cooler mounting pegs because I didn't understand the instructions. Was getting core temps of about 50 idle once I sorted out the legs, but im sure its because thecooler is not properly mounted, and so I am waiting for the last V6 GT cooler in stock to arrive from amazon uk before I do anything else.

Hopefully I will become an expert faster than I can break my stuff...

Cheers

Happy New Year mate. Welcome to OCN.

Happy new years - Also, welcome to OCN.

I'm happy that you're coming from the Thing I call hell in a box (Or, if you want to call it console gaming) to PC gaming. It will unleash the best gaming experience (IMO) for your money.

Nice system BTW - I guess you were getting paid a pretty penny, huh?

Thx, it's nice to be here!

So, NB, I moved to consoles around the time of PS2 being launched, and then moved to PS3 and I can't live with the long loading times and slowdown that I see more and more with new games. So basically my last gaming gfx card was a Voodoo 3 for my pentium 2 400 MHz in whatever year that was a good setup :-)

Yeah, guess I get paid okay, but then I've been working for about 15 years now so I can afford the extra mile for something as iomportant as a cool gaming PC. This may not be the right place to ask, but is vengeance exactly the same as vengeance LP aside from the big heat sinks - anyone?

Cheers
