Greetings from western Canada

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Greetings from western Canada, new member here.

I've been a reader of ocn for years and learned a lot from all the knowledgeable ppl hanging out here. Finally decided to join to participate in the discussions and maybe share some experience wherever I can. I enjoy building, tweaking and tuning computers. Done a fair bit of CPU overclocking, not so much GPU overclocking (have a cpl of questions coming on that subject, might have done something dumb, hehe) I like to play games too. Mostly RTS and 4x strategy games these days, the occasional fps. I am from the Doom generation.

Never cared for the Intel/Nvidia vs AMD/ATI battle, for me that's not what it's about. Currently I have a liquid cooled OC'd AMD/Asus//Radeon system in a Fractal Design case. Nothing spectacular but for me it's about tinkering and pushing what you got, not beating others.


Disclaimer:

I work for MemoryExpress (dot com) a competitor to Newegg (dot ca) and NCIX (dot ca), we also have actual stores spread across central and western Canada though (I work in one, not in the web sales division) I am absolutely not here to spam our stuff left right and center. I will probably never bring up MemX but if there are Canadian members here looking for deals and/or suggestions and I see Newegg, NCIX and Amazon already get some product links I might throw in some products from us as well, if it make sense. Not like Newegg and NCIX isn't getting enough love already smile.gif If I am asked directly about products from our store I will do my best to answer. Mods, if any of this is problematic do let me know.

Looking forward to participate here.

Cheers

Welcome! biggrin.gif

Being from Alberta, I've been a regular at MemoryExpress for years. It's easily one of my favorite PC shops. It's nice to have someone aboard from a great, locally owned PC shop. smile.gifthumb.gif

Thanks for the welcome and thanks for the feedback thumb.gif We try hard to be enthusiast friendly, we'r enthusiasts ourselves. It's a dangerous place to work, dangerous for the wallet... biggrin.gif
