gday, im sam & I live downunder in Australia
some of you might have seen me posting stupid questions round the place recently cause im aiming for my 4 th computer soon…conroe…but last few weeks have been busy and now that summer holidays are here (woot 2 months!) I thought its time I started posting something useful / friendly rather then a whole heap of questions.

just wanna say I love this place . I signed up a few weeks ago thinking I knew almost everything about computers, except overclocking, which I wasn’t brave enough to do until yesterday (1900xtx core: from 500 to 630, Memory: from 600 to 828 on stock fan. unfortuently my CPU is a mjor bottleneck on my pc and gave me no extra points to 3dmark06 when testing but I did experience a 30fps increase in CS:S!) after reading through each forum I realised in reality I proberly knew less than 1/10 of how pcs work and now I visit several times a day to see whats going on and most importantly, to learn

Bad thing about aus though is our prices are so high!
Conroe e6600 Aus: $545
Price it should be converted to US: $545 * .7 = $381.5
New Egg price: $308 : (

Hopes, maybe…one day
