Picked this up for $110 with $50 mail in rebate.

Frys honors rebates, even if the manufacturer doesn’t.

Can’t wait to see what an improvement to GTAIV this thing makes.

Next friday = quad core (waiting on paycheck)

    1. Jesus Christ, you’re really living week to week because of these little fucking unnecessary things? You are the epitome of Negro Rich.


    2. GTA 4 isent getting any better by improving the graphics its still gonna be a shittier saints row 2


    3. when he leaves his parent’s house he’ll work out the value of money and have to pawn all the shit he’s bought for 1/5th of what he bought it for


    4. Fry’s is very notorious for not returning MIR’s. So 4+ months from now if you get the check you’ll have to post it.


      • Yeah I am starting to realize that and I’m never doing mail in rebated again.

        I have got the rebates back on time with no problem at all for a couple of $15 MIR’s.

        The LCD touch screen temp/fan control touch-1000 by aerocool went through – costing me only $10 compared to $50 on newegg.

        But I took the card back for 2 reasons:

        Most important: It just DIED when I ran furmark reliability test on it. Crapped out at about 80C.

        #2: rebates of $50 don’t seem to want to be honored.

        I will not forget my $50 for this case and I will get the money for it eventually.


    5. Not going to help at all. Game still runs pretty lousy on a GTX 260 without turning most of the settings down.


      • If he will buy two/three generations old tech, more fool him.

        I like the point where he says ‘Quad Core’ coming at the weekend. Could be anything from a Phenom X4 to a Core i7-950 for all we know. Let’s just hope he pays enough for a 950 to get a PhX4, eh?


      • I’ve decided to just wait till I can afford an SLI/xfire board and ram first.

        Then I will get 2 moderate 1gb cards.

        No point in staying with a mobo that only has one pciex16 and 95w cpu max and ddr2 ram.


      • I was holding out but he said it and I agree.. just based on your track record here. This is not Facebook we dont give a shit about your shitty random pics. That card was top of the line 5 years ago.


    6. 9800GTX? Do you not know shit about computers or something?
