    I was looking at the boxing day/new years sales here in canada and they suck, ssd’s are 20 bucks more and no 50MIR I knew i should have grabbed one that last week of november.

      Yeah the sales can vary based on what you are looking for. I may or may not pull the trigger on a new TV today, we’ll see. I’m in no rush to get out as soon as the stores open. I always approach Boxing Day/Week sales with no expectations. If what I want is there, it’s there. If it’s not, then it’s not.

            I tried to SLi wives once but the laundry didn’t get done any quicker.

            I crossfired girlfriends once, i think it depends on what games you play with them, some work better than others.

            Well, don’t ever crossfire them without alcohol, blows up in yer face… lesson hard learnt 🙁

            I found the best results were from overclocking just one wife and using the other wife for physx. 😛

            Maybe you guys need to update your “driver”.
