Ye gods, it's taken me this long to finally get this typed up?
I have been busy.


I got home from work on Wednesday, intent on logging into WoW and getting ready for the raid.


But.... my computer was... not quite well.


Some fiddling and a call to my brother later, and I am heading to Best Buy with a short list of possible replacement graphics cards.

I found precisely what he suggested and walked out of Best Buy to....


the most awesomely beautiful, full double rainbow I have ever seen


And, to think, if the storms hadn't fried my graphics card, I never would have been in the south of town at that time.

Oh, do you know about the "Coolbits" App so you can overclock it???

The OC stands for Over Clocked, and I don't feel safe enough to overclock it more.

Hehe, don't wanna "go for the burn" eh.

Coolbits also offers a lot more functionality in its control panel as well. Adjusting vertex shaders, pixel depth, AF & AA filterings, etc.

Good choice.

Will be spinning an 8800GTS in about 3 weeks or so.

Max Video Settings and a 60+ Frame Rate at the same time will soon be within my grasp! :o)

That was top of my brother's list, with the understanding that a) Best Buy probably wouldn't have it and b) it's pretty much the most expensive option.

Aye, it be expensive, but not as bad as the 8800GTX or the 8800 Ultra-Cash-Sucker.

Can't wait until next year when I can get a second one, upgrade my Power Supply, and then officially have "Too Much Graphics Power Than Actually Needed." :o)

And Best buy is great for "Immediate Need," but their selection leaves a bit to be desired. Then again, I miss Fry's too much.
