A little green..

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey!

Throwing out a G'day to all!

My name is Jonno, from Australia. Currently working in a Casino in Darwin, NT, as a Bar Duty Manager.

I've been an hardcore gamer for a very long time, being a little bit of a Blizzard fanboy.

Few months ago, I decided to shift from a desktop replacment lappy to a full rig. I've never had any desire to mod, overclock or otherwise. However, after I realised that most of the components I'd put together were much more capable than anything I'd previously done in my daily routine, I asked myself, "Will it be a waste to just play games, watch movies and surf?" The answer was YES.

So i started investigating, which led me to here...

And god damn, I can't wait to get into it. My rig is in my sig, but I'll post a few pics in a build log, plus 1 or two improvements I'll be adding/added.

Glad you guys are here. The wealth of knowledge is amazing. Keep on trucking, and I'll see you on the flippity flop!
