Graphics Cards
Evening everyone, long time no see.
Any techies online who could recommend an upgrade for my graphics card. I can't really afford to spend very much at all.

I'm currently using an ATI Radeon HD 4800, however, there are some shiny things that I want to play with which won't work at the moment without an upgrade. This sort of stuff is gibberish to me, but here are the minimum specs for those who care.

If you aren't interest in this. Tell me what you would most like to be doing this evening. Bonus points for not saying 'your mum'.

Your current graphics card will be fine for that game. I have the same card.
If you want to spend money, you can get a Geforce 6770 for about a hundred quid. Your card is currently towards the bottom of the pile, a 6770 is the bottom middle.

Google Tom's Hardware and have a look for "the best graphics card for the money 2012" article. Price in dollars is usually roughly equivalent to pounds.

I'm going to play games on my new up to date computer.
LOL! you're well jelly, I can tell.

Check that your PSU can supply enough juice for whatever card you get .

I don't know what any of that means,
but my advice would be not to bother, go and find something else to do instead.
I would most like to be going out to see some bands play and ideally to get very stoned whilst doing this. Sadly neither of these things are an option for me.

I would most like to be round the bird's house.
But she's one of those daft people who lives in the 'real world' with one of them job things and as such is busy til Thursday. I'm so unbelievably bored I've volunteered to help at my aunt's company for the rest of the week. For free. FREE.

Isn't your aunt 'Mother Brass' or something?

Someone has to ensure the girls are well stocked with condoms, tissues and lube.
It's fairly mundane work for poor Baz.

That's my my mum's aunt.
I've never met her. God I want it to be Thursday now so, so badly.

Alright Baz.
How is back up north treating you?
(, Mon 14 May 2012, 23:26, Reply)
hey you
where ya been?
(, Mon 14 May 2012, 23:31, Reply)
Post work pint, innit.
What have you been doing? And has there been any joy from your last gaz?
(, Mon 14 May 2012, 23:32, Reply)
Not yet. Still waiting.
A couple of others added to the pile though.

Has work sorted itself out yet?
(, Mon 14 May 2012, 23:33, Reply)
Nah, it's all up in the air still.
Never mind.

Any other news from the coast? How is the world of the Happy Biscuit treating you?
(, Mon 14 May 2012, 23:36, Reply)
I'm working steadily at it
but I'm not sure if I'm getting the traffic. I might look into this facebook advert thing that Gonz is talking about. I'm getting a fair bit of spam comments though.

The coast, as always, is a den of drugs and chavity.

You need to set yourself up as a friendly drug dealer.
Put a smile on a smackheads face.
(, Mon 14 May 2012, 23:43, Reply)
I'm not sure there's really a market for that here...

(, Mon 14 May 2012, 23:47, Reply)
You could get yourself a beach front shop
And sell pineapple rock, ice-cream and powder.
(, Mon 14 May 2012, 23:48, Reply)
Yum.
When are you coming back for another go at the pier then?
(, Mon 14 May 2012, 23:49, Reply)
Depends.
Depends on when you have a worthy rival for the OT crazy-golf crown.
(, Mon 14 May 2012, 23:55, Reply)
Nobody wanted to come to pierbash 2.
I can only assume that it's because they all hate me.
(, Mon 14 May 2012, 23:56, Reply)
Or because you only had it in the calendar for 5 minutes before you canned it.

(, Mon 14 May 2012, 23:59, Reply)
I only canned it because everyone said they couldn't make it!
After having first told me that weekend was fine.

Why not float the idea to see what works.
And then, if there is enough 'so if I go for 'x' date, you'll be able to make it?' type confirmation, put it in the calendar.

Back up north?
I only just got back down to London geezer. Although I'm so bored I might go back up earlier than I planned. In fact I'm stupidly bored all of the time now, I don't actually know what to do. It worries me.

Have you braved the kitchen yet?

Give Monty a call.
He can take you on a tour of drugs you never really fancied.
(, Mon 14 May 2012, 23:55, Reply)
I'm done with that shizzle, yo.
Unless it's with the doris and we're just chilling at hers with a load of bugle and red wine. Then I'm in.
(, Tue 15 May 2012, 0:01, Reply)
You sound smitten mate.
When are you seeing her again, next?
(, Tue 15 May 2012, 0:02, Reply)
Thursday.
Was tomorrow but she's got to work late now. I'm so unbelievably paranoid all of the time that I'm trying to work out whether she's just lost interest. I need to get out of my head but I've been stuck in there permanently for twenty one years so it's quite hard.
(, Tue 15 May 2012, 0:05, Reply)
After that amount of time, I'm amazed it's still hard and hasn't yet gone off.

(, Tue 15 May 2012, 0:11, Reply)
Stop joking I'm a nervous wreck here.
I'm also a fucking idiot for being like this. I'm like a petulant child who needs constant validation.
(, Tue 15 May 2012, 0:13, Reply)
Baz.
You're the best dressed man of OT, and you've been validated by being the winner of 'most like to meet' at JeffStock I.

What else do you want?
(, Tue 15 May 2012, 0:15, Reply)
You make me smile Jeffers, although her texting me back would also be nice.
It's fine, it's fine. I just need to occupy myself. Sitting around the house all day doesn't help, I'm looking forward to working tomorrow. I can stop this nonsense then.

Take the dog out for a walk.
And then leave a bag of dog shit by the Jacko memorial at The Cottage.

You know it makes sense.
(, Tue 15 May 2012, 0:24, Reply)
I walked the dog three times today.
Such was my boredom/paranoia/level of worry. Although walking her to Craven Cottage would be a bit of a stretch.
(, Tue 15 May 2012, 0:29, Reply)
You could post the shit?

(, Tue 15 May 2012, 0:30, Reply)
I don't pick up my dog's poo.
So I ain't sending any of it either.
(, Tue 15 May 2012, 0:36, Reply)
Listen to some camp tunes.
That'll sort you out.
(, Tue 15 May 2012, 0:40, Reply)
Oh, you're in the right place here then...

(, Tue 15 May 2012, 0:19, Reply)
I might well do that.
When's good for you?
(, Tue 15 May 2012, 0:11, Reply)
No idea at the moment.
Suggest some weekends.
(, Tue 15 May 2012, 0:12, Reply)
I can't do the first two weekends in July
But apart from that, any Saturday is good.
Having said that, the place is swarming with tourists during the summer holidays... Maybe September, like we did last year?
(, Tue 15 May 2012, 0:16, Reply)
September might be do-able.
Kick round some weekends during the day, if I can get a hotel at a resonable price, then we can make a curry and booze night of it.

I've got a few weddings and stuff to go to around that time, but at least one weekend will be free.
(, Tue 15 May 2012, 0:18, Reply)
I will broach the idea tomorrow
though I'm not holding out much hope. I have, by now, come to expect the crushing disappointment of rejection.
(, Tue 15 May 2012, 0:21, Reply)
Go for the sympathy vote!
But check the calendar before. There is another OT-Favoured event in Sept.

I went to a quiz on my own, came second by one point to a team that cheated
Am a mixture between proud and furious. If either of my team mates had shown up, we'd have easily won.

So you lost by a short length.
