Howdy!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello! I'm Patrick, from Arizona, USA, and am 16 years old. Ive been into computers for a while, and built my first rig about a year ago. Its not the most powerful, but I have fun with it. I havn't overclocked this rig much, but I've overclocked my old Pentium D desktop with an 8800GT to run GTA IV at a reasonable framerate for such an old comp. I've also pin modded an old laptop of mine. I am really interested in custom cases, and want to learn wood- and a bit more advanced metal-working to create my own. Project KAPROS really caught my eye, and I may have to try something like that. Aside from computers, I am into golf and flying. My plans for life are to become an aeronautical engineer, preferably studying at the Air force Academy, or Embry Riddle.

If you really want your parts to last that long, you have to find good deals. You might look into getting a GTX 580 off of OCN, as many people are selling their old cards to get a GTX 680.
