Sorry I have been absent. Due to storms my Power Supply bit the dust. Ordered a new one from Newegg but THAT was defective. Sent it back and ordered another one which should be coming Monday or Tuesday. Computers can be super frustrating, but I can't complain. I built my system around 5-6 years ago and this was the first major problem I encountered. Hopefully it was just the power supply and nothing else. Taking out a motherboard is a pain in the freaking ass.

Anyways, this month has been expensive as far as replacing and paying for things. Luckily I get paid 3 times this month so it ain't all bad. I even had to replace my printer since it decided it no longer wanted to put ink on the pages (pretty sure the thing which goes back and forth got messed up) just so I could print the RMA crap to send the defective power supply back. However, I did recycle my old power supply and printer at Best Buy for Earth day, so you're welcome Earth.

Anywho, I've had a lot of things in mind to review but the recent turn of events have sucked the desire out of me. So stay tuned! Recently got 127 Hours in the mail via Netflix, so might watch that soon and post a review.

Also, totally leave a comment on suggestions on what to review. If I've seen it I can post a quick review, if I haven't seen it I might watch it.

Doubly also: If you're not watching Parks and Recreations you're dying inside. And if you don't think so, just watch this:

  2. I've had my share of power supply problems. Built this system in December 2007. First power supply I got lasted 6 months. Replaced it with the same brand and that one lasted 2 weeks. Got a second one completely and utterly free and that one lasted another 2 weeks. Bought a 380w power supply from a friend for $10. Blew out when I replaced my stock CPU fan with a HUGE fan that took up the inside of my case. Finally borrowed a stable 400w power supply from a friend who had it from a 10 year old pc. Had to replace the fan in it, but it works very well for such an old power supply. Recently got my GTX460 and my new 600W power supply. Needless to say I've had lousy luck with power supplies, but that's what I get for buying cheap. : /
