Are you doing Biology homework because if you aren't, I will tell you something.

Our brains don't have short term memory and long term memory. Long term memory is located farther in the back while short term is located somewhat in the middle. If you are bored, the information will only stick to the short term part and will be quickly forgotten in usually about a day. To prevent this, you must engage the brain in some highly interactive activity that you will enjoy.

Another part to this, humans are naturally social. If you do not engage with another person or persona (game characters), then you will lose your sanity like people who have been kidnapped. That is where Stockholm disease comes from because we need someone to interact with or we can't function properly.

Now, would you like to have all the studying go to waste because you are simply bored (so basically a waste of 5 hours of homework), become a recluse and practically destroy your sanity, or play games for a bit? tongue.gif

Wow, I honestly wouldn't do it unless it really counts for points. Like I'm taking programming too and we have to write these programs showing what we learned over the year, I just wrote a paragraph explaining what the terms mean like stacks, queues, recursive, iterative and how they apply to programming and when they should be used. I got 100! tongue.gif

that's the price I paid @ Fry's using pricematch for my 3570K a few months back.

I wonder if the price was within $20-30 of each other, would you go ahead and get the 3770K or keep the $ and stay with the 3570K.?
me personally do not need a 3770K but for $20-30, why the hell not...

$400?!? DAMN! You'd have to sell a liver and your heart to even build half of what people build in the States! Like watercooled rigs and all.
