    Why did you not order online? For 84 dollars you could have easily bought a 9600 gt, which would run circles around a 9500.

    Tha General prefers to buy at brick and mortar stores not online.

    He prefers to spend 15-20% more. Weird I know.

    He probably cannot afford a credit card. I know lots of people who can't, especially after the credit crunch leaving a sour taste in everyone's mouth.

    You have to understand Tha General's mindset to know why he does what he does.

    lol at the above comments. Now I just wonder if more than 20 fps is going to be too fast for him :D

    If he has a bank account, that can be linked to paypal, and you can buy online with paypal a lot of places....

    Just think of his over spending as stimulating the economy. :)

    When i buy something, i want it ASAP. I don't have the patience of ordering online and waiting for something. So if i have to spend the extra cash, so be it.

    I don't like credit cards and neither do i have a bank account. I can't afford a credit card? What lol

    Looks and feels surreal thats for sure.

    Congrats!

    I dont have a bank account or credit card either. I used to have a high paid job, 3 credit cards and a 10 thousand pound overdraft, unfortunatly i was made redundant and my bank manager and i are no longer on speaking terms !!

    I learned the hard way... credit sucks !!

    I have no idea what you are talking about. I am not poor, neither am i on a budget, and i am not sure if you know this, but i am a well known celebrity and a model and actor, so i am far from being poor. What you don't seem to understand , i do not like credit cards, i don't want one, and i don't want a bank account, because i don't care for it. I use cash, i have a safe, my choice, my decision.

    Yea thanks, and yes credit sucks. Use cash, quick and easy.

    peace

    Seems there's no point to being polite with you.

    From what I can gather, you're probably just an extra who stood in for Tom Welling on Smallville and now thinks he's "tha shiz".

    What's that? Is it a bird? A plane?
    No! It's Superman flying home with a Gateway tucked under his arm! Hooray!

    Since you lie about everything else its only natural that no one believes you about your occupation.

    BTW one of your profiles says you are in "Construction Work"..are you a roadside construction worker????
