Greetings from the Midwest!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi, all! I have visited Overclockers.net several times over the years, and I have learned a ton from your wonderful members. I am by no means a technically savvy individual, but I recently built my first rig that I am extremely proud of. I can't tell you how happy I was when that blue light came on the first time I powered it up and there was no smoke! I am self taught, mostly through (expensive) trial and error and communities such as this one. I have spent many , many hours over the past few months looking into upgrading my audio, and with advice that I got perusing the audio forums, I decided to go the "GPU to receiver via HDMI" route, and I couldn't be happier. I all it all to Overclockers.net! I hope that someday I will be confident enough to offer any assistance, but in the mean time, I look forward to all the information that is at my fingertips! smile.gif

PEACE!
