Hey Mike, welcome to the site.
Thanks! I see you have a link for L.O.S.T. in your sig. Im a old L.O.S.T. member myself. KJmike06 Here is a pic of my KJ.
You must be a C programmer.
I was wondering when someone would catch that. Just for the people who don't know basically when you learn to program the first "program" you create is a little box that says Hello world.
Now with that said. I am not a programmer unfortunately. I took a few hours of it but never really got heavy into it. Im a huge hardware guy. Give me a box of parts and a OS cd and I'm a happy camper. I always tell my friends that my dream job would be to make enthusiast computer for Alienware or Dells xps or any of those high end computer manufactures who offer overclocked computers.
I love putting computers together and then making them run equal to a computer that would have cost me double.
My current computers main specs are as follows.
Intel e6600 stock=2.4 gig overclocked=3.6gig.
evga 780I motherboard.
evga 8800gts sitting at 625 core, 1700 memory, and 1500 shaders.
OCZ ddr2 6400 timings set to 4,4,4,12 speed 800.
2 250 gig sata2 drives in raid 0.
This is all on air cooling. If I had some water cooling or maybe even phase change I bet I could get more but I want this hardware to last.
I have had a computer catch on fire before and its not fun.
