I see the original Max Payne box up there...wish I still had mine.
The problem with Elvis is that he actually got a DEA agent permit
from President Nixon and wanted to be involved with drug busts.
All that...while he was paying pharmacists (4 of them) big money
for his "legal" drugs which eventually killed him at age 42.
This is true!
Besides that, you got a good collection of games. :thumbright:

Killed him? What are you talking about? I saw Elvis last week dirt biking. I told him he shouldn't really be dirt biking because it isn't really safe and he is a precious commodity. Would hate to lose Elvis to a stupid dirt biking accident. What a tragic loss that would be.

Hey Rock, I noticed you didn't say that your post was "true".

Am I the only one that still believes Elvis Presley is alive? C'mon people! Don't give up hope. Think about it....very wealthy, famous person can't even leave his home without being mobbed wants to be able to blend into society. Do the X-Files thing.....just believe.
And, here's a pic..just to get back on topic :D

Nice machines, both from rock and jamie.
These new cards are huge, I hadn't expected either that it wouldn't right away fit inside the cage. (I have a very big case) I had to turn around the HD drives several times over to find the correct angle to let the card fit. :mozilla_smile:

I've sold my SLI cards and bought a GTX 275 - about the same
as a 285 at $100 less.
I now have a 260 (216 core) in one PC and a
275 in the other...I've gone crazy!

Hehe.
I have a 24".. 1920x1200.
Yeah, it's nice.
Too bad a lot of the games I play don't support Crossfire..
Although Clear Sky does, it sure as hell helps a lot. (Still hard to get 40 FPS, though. >.<)
And GTAIV..And Crysis (Not like it helps.)
And I'm blabbering. Yay!
