Another Texan Intro

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
How y'all doin? biggrin.gif I'm an N.J. transplant to the Dallas area and have been here for about 17 years now. I'm a "damn yankee" 'cause I have no intentions of moving back. There's lots of money down here!

Anyway, this site has had a great reputation over the years; don't know why it's taken me so long to join, but I'm glad to finally be here. Hopefully my HTPC/Gaming rig shows up with this post. I think I have some useful info to offer but I also have questions about my setup and squeezing every ounce of goodness out of it (without breaking it redface.gif ).

And just to suck up a bit... very impressed with the way the site owners seem to have mastered the Huddler s/w here. Another site I frequent, not so much. Thanks for stopping by.

Edit: Well, my rig didn't show up so yeah, even more questions! rolleyes.gif

very nice! I had 2 560 Ti's back before my 670. Are you looking to SLI in the near future?

I'm not going to rule it out. Things at work are a little unstable right now so I need to watch my spending. I'm not having any problems playing Crysis 3, Far Cry 3 or Borderlands 2, so I just want to tweak for the time being. That's fun too right? wink.gif
