I have another one:
I had a CompUSA gift card that was given to me one Christmas. The local CompUSA was closing (surprise! Lol) so I thought I would stop in and buy something with it. I think it was a $50 card I had. What did I walk out with? Over $1000 worth of parts for a new computer, case, PSU, CPU, everything. None of it could be returned because they were going out of business. The OCZ ram the guy sold me would not post with my motherboard.
I then took the time to research the memory a bit more and placed an order with NewEgg. OCZ never did respond to my letter asking if they would exchange the ram for something that would work with my board. No clue anymore what the board was or the ram, the thing would not post with those sticks.
That rig is still running, I somehow popped almost every cap on the board a year ago. Thing would not fire up, looked inside and every cap I looked at was bad. MS was kind enough to grant me a registration on my copy of vista after replacing the board. Something is not right with it though, it will not take certain updates. I have never gotten around to reinstalling because I bought the upgrade version of vista and had to jump through some hoops to get a clean install with an empty drive.
