Yeah, it would be nice to see what it can do on a copy of Metro2033Geeked

That is if you think my FirePro can handle it :P

I think the physics is only real enough to make comic geeks feel smart, and to make physicist's happy on how wrong they get itIndifferent

Isn't the FirePro V8800 similar to a 5870? If that's the case then it should have no problems handling Metro 2033.

No Tom,... they have their very own Physicist on staff,.....

David Saltzberg, a professor of physics and astronomy at the University of California, Los Angeles, checks scripts and provides dialogue, math equations, and diagrams used as props.to ensure that it's all correct.

Sheldon actually has a board up during the show and he's working on a real problem that slowly, episode by episode is being solved. Sheldon is always working on a real problem. This has been done since the first season, season 1.

A lot of my 'brainiac' engineer friends at Boeing Space division, and some that are still at Rockwell International have an unhealthy obsession with this show, partly because of it's real math, real theory, and it's real funny.

Yeah Neil, I just figured you might have been playing at being overly critical. So I thought I would cover my bases:P
 
Or, I just thought they were just trying to make me feel smart because I actually understand them when they talk about Quantum Theory and particle physics.
 
 The Math part I have always had a particular problem with, because I am numerically dyslexic. But I have always had a strange interest in Theory, and applied physics! Kinda more like Kirk than Spock, I don't need to know what the numerical chances are for gettin the green girl, just let me at 'Er ;)
 
Although I did squeeze my ears every night during bedtime so I can have Spock's ears. It worked, But only on one side!

Ok, I'll be the one to ask.

Inquiring minds want to know.

Too old and tired to play games with people. When I think of play, it's something productive like chasing the missus around some. (she lets me catch up) Or maybe a few rounds of a good shooter.

As far as being critical of anyone, I threw off my "perfect" mantle many years ago and therefore have no room to criticize others.

animatortom:

Ha-Ha! I always liked "The Man From U.N.C.L.E." and the original "Mission Impossible" series. Star Trek was usually too cheesy for me.

I wonder if I'll be able to hear the winner's "SQUEEEEE!" from here?

Hmm...I can't find the Ctrl+Alt+Del image I want to use but squee can be interpreted as a good noise.  For example, "Today is International Cheese Day" or "Duke Nukem Forever has been picked up by Gearbox!"  followed by "SQUEEEE!"

Fat, don't forget about power supply, cpu cooler (unless the evga one comes with it, case (if you want a new one or need one...) hdd, media drive and some other small stuff :D But of course you can take some from your old build :D.

 

Only thing i can really keep is the power supply, HDD, Media drives and maybe case if i can't afford a new one :D.

Yeah, when I try to dance with just one leg, I fall every time!

'Old Geezer' mode: I've actually been sitting on a bar-stool at the house reading and forgotten about my 'incomplete checklist' and tried to walk away. Of course the first step always goes well,.... after that it goes downhill fast. It's been a long time since I've done that one though.

If MSI are the ones that are judging then it wont help his chances :P
