    Pull that plug Mr. Anderson, they're all gonna pick me!

    But I'll donate the card to Nick for his kindness towards blind people.

    Geo,

    I travel home for the holidays (back in Michigan). And like the uber geek I am take my PC with me for the 2 weeks I am there. I sent my PC back via UPS and pack it up very carefully each time. And have had good luck with no damage. However this year my luck did run-eth out. My PC was dropped and damaged. The HDD has a clicking sound when it powers up, the PC wont even POST anymore and there was some very minor damage to the case. From what I can see, the HDD, Mobo, CPU and possible the video card were damaged (Segate 320gb HDD SATA, AMD 64bit x3400+, MSI KN8 Mobo, AIT 800xl video). Now while I did insure this package and have opened a claim with UPS, there is no garantee that I will get any money back. And yes all of the cirtical data was backed up before it was sent. However all of those large mulitmedia content that I "backed up" for users while at the LANs I went to up in Michigan was not :p Doh!

    So I have just purchased the new guts to rebuild my system via newegg. But I did not get a new video card as I am not sure thats was damaged as this was my only PCIe system I have. So I could really use a known good video card like the one you have avaibile. I realize I was taking a gamble and it was just my time to pay, but I do have an honset to goodness need for one now and yours would be a prefect fit. Also if you want I can PM you the UPS claim number to verify I am on the level (thats why I have not been in the IRC channel as all of that info/data was on the main PC). Thanks and I realize others here have just as much if not a bigger need than I so no worries at all!

    I did.. and it is THAT thing that brings up the selfish beast inside us all.

    It's like the trade shows.. I don't want to jump and beg for a hello kitty mouse mat.. (well not anymore) but when people are throwing free Radeons into the crowd... hell.. I'd probably kiss another man to get my hands on that!

    Would I kill for it? Maybe...

    Would I send Geo movies of my girlfriend stripping and playing with herself? sure

    Would I posts in this thread? HELL YEAH!

    Oh yeah I forgot to mention I have never won a single thing in my life aside from a jar of jellybeans in grade school that I managed to guess the closest number to. I also supposedly won an X800 from an ATI contest but could not fax them my information, I only ever got a busy signal and thus never recieved anything from them. :(

    I think they make it difficult so that most people give up and they don't have to send anything. :evil: :???:
