    Ok I agree.

    Lets talk about Reality for a minute.

    Now Set aside the Bible for this talk.

    Now for the Questions.

    Who on this Planet living today is going to be remembered 1000 years from now? (House Hold name)

    What happened today that is going to be remembered 1000 years from now?

    What happened 10 mins ago to YOU that will be remembered 1000 years from now?

    What happened in your Life to YOU that will be remembered 1000 years from now?

    What was said to YOU that made YOU upset that will be remembered 1000 years from now?

    The answer is the same to all the questions.

    That is the Harsh Reality of life.

    There are "audiophile" fanboys who will argue regarding the respective advantages of a pair of $100 mains cables, neither of which does anything.

    LMAO.

    Agreed. Double-blind testing has proven it.

    Absolutely not. I am sure there are even more ridiculous examples of how marketing is ripping the big one out of audiophiles on a daily basis.

    Martin_89,


    Yeah we all have our favorites. But the Key, the BIG key is to respect an others opinions and not to try and push a point.

    I will listen to anyones opinion, Key words is LISTEN, Mouth SHUT and then I will make up my own mind.

    People really need to know when to Listen and when to speak, we as humans would be alot better off that way.

    yeah i know, for example, your an Intel fan when it comes to CPU's i wouldn't try to talk you into buying an AMD for your next upgrade. i could suggest it but if you said no then fair enough, i wouldnt keep trying and trying to get you to buy an AMD. People like what they like.

    Yeah I would talk to you about it for awhile and look at the options available and postives and negatives of BOTH systems and make my final choice.

    And I wouldn't try and push you into an Intel system either, but if you asked a questions I would answer them, but never push my point.

    Martin,

    I am not an Intel Fan Boy really, but with what I use my machine for Intel works better and when the day comes that AMD has a truly better option all around, CPU, Chipset combined I will build an AMD system for myself in a heartbeat.

    AMD processors, ATI graphics cards, WesternDigital hard drives, Creative sound cards, and Abit motherboards. I admit it, I'm biased. Last 3 computers had all of these and I'll probably use them in the next 3.

    I refuse to buy a Dell since they won't use AMD. I'd love to buy a laptop from them, but it'd have to be an Athlon64 with ATI grapics. I could give up the rest, but it's gotta be AMD and ATI.

    While I prefer AMD & ATI, I won't imply that someone's wrong for wanting something else. Doing so would be saying that they're right for saying I'm wrong for liking what I like.

    If that's true, then I guess it's my pencil that makes spelling mistakes.

    Okay here is an example using drills instead of vc, cpu etc....

    BD = Black and Decker user.
    RF = Ryobi Fanboi

    BD
    "Hey everyone, I found out that my new overclocked Black and Decker drill can run at 30,000 rpms."

    Then a Ryobi fanboi chimes in,

    RF
    "Well that is just one drill that can do that and it probably isn't even stable. You probably burn't up the drill or needed LN2 cooling. Black and Decker doesn't even plan on bringing out a 30,000 rpm drill. It won't even make it too market. RYOBI drills cost less and and overclocked are running about the same speed as that Black and Decker. You Black and Decker users are always trying to make them look better. LOL, YAH. Just wait till the Ryobi with dual motors comes out. YAH"

    BD
    "No I found out it would run at 30,000 rpms stable. Here are some benchmarks."

    RF
    "I don't believe it. That screw looks like it is a little shorter than the other one and you are using cedar planks instead of pine. Every one benchmarks on pine wood."

    BD
    "Well I was just showing the difference in cedar planks between OC'd and not overclocked. It really wasn't meant to be a comparison between pine and cedar benchmarks or between ryobi and black and decker for that matter. I was just showing that my overclocked black and decker proves to be a useful product especially when overclocked."

    RF
    "Well anytime I want I can put dual motors into my ryobi drill. Black and decker has to keep changing their plastic case so you have to buy a whole new drill every time,LOL.YAH. Like I said Black and Decker isn't even planning on bringing out a 30,000 rpm drill."

    RF
    "Did I mention that Black and Decker isn't even bringing out a 30,000 rom drill."

    RF
    "Did I mention that Black and Decker isn't even bringing out a 30,000 rom drill."

    RF
    "Did I mention that Black and Decker isn't even bringing out a 30,000 rom drill."

    RF
    "Did I mention that Black and Decker isn't even bringing out a 30,000 rom drill."

    RF
    "Did I mention that Black and Decker isn't even bringing out a 30,000 rom drill."

    RF
    "Did I mention that Black and Decker isn't even bringing out a 30,000 rom drill."

    RF
    "Did I mention that Black and Decker isn't even bringing out a 30,000 rom drill."

    RF
    "Did I mention that Black and Decker isn't even bringing out a 30,000 rom drill."

    LOLLOLLOL, YAH!

    Too many people don't realize that Atheism is just as much a religion (a set of beliefs) as Christianity, Islam, Hindi, Buddism, etc..
    Yes I know it is, and their beliefs are to be respected just like anyone elses. (I am not going any deeper than that on the subject, so don't ask)
