    When ever I see this thread I just smile, knowing how bad the OP failed.

    Edited:

    If you're so mature, get a job. I saved up $700 for my build in a year. Also, a 6500 is a terrible card for $60, or any amount of money nowadays. Seriously, your dad has no idea what he's doing.

    Get a Hd 4850 for $100 or a 4870 if you can spend a little more.

    EDIT: Ouch, he actually bought it. That really sucks. You could have probably gotten something in the 8 series or something in the 4 series of the ATI cards.

    Where I am, I need to be 16. I live in a Summer home area. There's barely anybody where I live.

    Oh, and I found a new card, not sure if it's good or not.

    I read it, and I stand by my point. Do jobs for family members, sell some of your video games, mow/shovel lawns, etc.

    Also, that card isn't that great, and it's even worse that you're using Ebay to buy it. I may have missed some reason why you're using it, but don't.

    Also, the reason why people thought you bought it is because you were very rarely replying to anything in your own thread. You also completely skipped over that free GPU deal a FP'er was offering.

    EDIT: Also, why did you say 'EDIT' but you really didn't edit it? It wasn't automerge, because that has: Edited:

    You're back?

    I don't understand... you refuse to get free stuff from Prisma (one of the most established members of this subforum) because you don't give out information... but eBay ships to your house anyhow, so isn't that giving information?

    For that matter, you'd still be saving an assload of money if you got a P.O. box and had Prismatex ship it there.

    I had the PCI-E version of that card and it played TF2 at 1280x800 with medium settings pretty good.

    what? no. any decent computer can be built online for a very low price
    you just need to save up some more
    I built an upgrade to my 1GHz Athlon Thunderbird for about 300, and the spec wasn't amazing. Plus I only managed to do that because of my work's Christmas bonus last year.

    A lot of you guys need to remember that money is hard to come by if you aren't working and have sensible parents. If I ever have a teenage kid I wouldn't be showering them with money, I'd expect them to work for it.

    OP: Consider taking Prismatex's offer. You might be able to have it delivered to a post office where you can pick it up.

    That is a brilliant card for the price. I bought the X1950 Pro version for 125 a few years ago and it basically let me play Oblivion on 1280x1024 with only a 2.2GHz Athlon XP and 2GB RAM. If you're thinking about getting it, do it (as long as you feel safe with the seller).

    A) My offer expired Tuesday, since that was the only day I could make it to a post office.
    B) That X1650 Pro is about $5 cheaper on Newegg with free shipping.

    XPS720 REPRESENT

    I actually just recently upgraded my 720 from a few years ago. Still using it, and it now has a Q9550 and a GTX260 in it.

    But the chassis is probably the best one that dell has ever designed.

    Also, OP epicly failed. The worst part is that he probably didn't learn anything from this thread and will continue to miss these types of deals.
