Abouta year ago i went into future shop, having no experience what so ever with computers and asked for a pc good for gaming for about $1000.00 So this guy goes oh check this baby out, it has "agp" a 633 processor and "built in sound. What he told me was i wouldn't need to upgrade it for like two years and it can handle fps games no probs. (check out the m/b here ..http://e4all.freeservers.com/mobos/cognac.html ) Well for the first couple of months i was happy enough, not knowing any better. But as i started to buy games you could see what i discovered, he sold me less than state of the art.. Over priced planned obsolescenceto be precise. Any ways he also pushed a three year warranty on it, so seeing that everyone i talked to about this e-machine (my fierce gaming rig which will never need to be upraded) the more they tell me i was totally ripped. Guess i shouldn't have told him i was green! i decided it was time to rip them off too, So i know some people will be like "your fault for not knowing any better", but hopefully i will find some folk who say "stick it the man" and tell me how i can destroy my motherboard. i have a 3 yr "no questions asked warranty, but i think pouring gas and torching it might not work, so can anyone tell me how i can totally fry my mother board Thanx:blackeye: p.s. and oh ya, after taxexs and extended warranty it cost about 1200.
