Hi,

I've find myself visiting these forums quite frequently, usually just to salivate at unbelievable screens and read about people's insane rigs. The thing is, I am not a hardcore overclocker yet, or even a gamer.

You see, I'm a student, so it's a distant dream to even be able to come close to affording the hardware some of you guys have!!

So I had to sign up if anything just to ask the sole question:

What do you guys all do for a living??!

Does it allow you to comfortably support your hobby, whilst being a satisfying job in it's own right??

Thanks

Mentally ill, getting money for doing nothing

No one is better than the other, each has his flaw and his opinion, everyone is wrong once in a while, some are wrong often. We are only human.


Broken CPU, temps didnt work, but overclocking did. Actually went as far as 4.2 for almost an entire year. >

Left school at 16, went to college, left because it was awful and the teachers were useless. Now I work 9 - 5, 5 days a week as a Trainee Buying Clerk/Online store manager for a large car components firm.

I'm happy with the money I earn, love the job, and it allows me to fund my hobby, wouldn't mind if it was a bit more ICT orientated, but managing the online eBay/Store is quite interesting.

Also, this needs a sticky.
