Hello to all!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone!

I've been lurking for a little bit but decided to post an intro thread and get a little bit more involved around here.

So, a little about me in point form!

- From Canada, specifically Southern Ontario.
- I'm in my 30's
- I have been around computers pretty much all my life and I can remember distinctly using Windows 3.1 - I even remember my Dad buying a CD-ROM Upgrade Kit that went for an exorbitant amount of money back then. Amazing how far we've come in 20 years in terms of pricing and accessibility.
- I prefer PC gaming to console gaming. I just feel PC gaming offers a better experience / immersion. Personal preference - not bashing consoles smile.gif
- Musically I lean pretty much into the Indie scene, but I am open to almost anything except rap music. Again, personal preference.
- As for movies I will watch anything, not picky at all. Side note: Being a child of the 80s I was crushed when Harold Ramis passed away. uber talented. I hope they don't move forward with Ghostbusters 3 now.
- I now buy the majority of my parts from Newegg and NCIX. I used to shop at Canada Computers but they were always either out of stock or on back order for things I was looking for that I could easily get elsewhere. Also, the customer service at my location has been pretty crappy in the past.

I think that's about it! I am in the process of building a brand new rig right now and it will be done around the first week of May, so when that rolls around I will post some specs and pictures smile.gif


Cheers!

Welcome to OCN from a fellow Canadian.

And yeah, my first cd-rw drive was in the $400 range about 20 years ago as well. LOL.
