    Let's see... that would have to be when I went from my Radeon 7200 AGP 64MB to the nForce2 IGP on my Aopen AK79G-Max. The IGP was a little faster, especially with 128mb allocated, but it was barely noticeable.

    ROFLMAO - What about me? Bcuz of my crappy Antec causing file corruption errors for the past 3-4 years -

    Abit IC7 => Abit IC7-G
    P4 2.4C => 3.0E
    ATI 9500 => ATI 9800NP
    PC2700 ram => PC3200
    3 different IDE Controller cards
    New set of rounded cables

    On top of that - I kept buying hard disks to backup my original ones. All this on one system!!!

    Believe me - it ran me more than a pretty penny~


    I can't find anyone more dumb-assed than me as of the moment.

    I dunno BBQ - I wouldn't say is IDE cables are useless upgrades if you wanted the yellow in the first place. It's not like black gave u higher speeds n such. I see it more as change of color scheme than anything else =oP

    Yea, after I wrote Type R on the yellow ide, I was getting like, 400mb/s through it.

    It was a cosmetic upgrade, actually.

    Odyssey used to make these steering dampeners that were basically screnn door hydraulics with a couple clamps that would go from the down-tube to the fork.

    That was dumb.
