Wassup Guys?....... Something's been bothering my mind for a couple of days. I spent some days at a friends house last week, I was surprised to see that he never shut down any of his 3 hand built pc's, they run 24/7 and none have server functions. I asked him why they were on all the time and he answered that turning them on and off everyday shortens the life of a pc, and since they've been on for the last couple of months they've been running better..... Does this make sense?... Does everyone keep their pc ON all the time?... Is there something I don't know?....... I am an extreme gamer and internet addict, I use my pc everyday but shut it down every night...... Please help me clear this one cause I'm confused now! My system is: Abit NF7 Mobo AMD 2700XP Cpu 512 Mb Ram Thermaltake Volcano 7 Fan (Noisy as hell) 80Gb 6 40Gb Western Digital HD GeForce FX5900 128Mb SB Audigy 2 Leadtek TV Tuner Deluxe 2000 MSI DVD/RW LG CD/R DVD Combo 350W Power Supply Thanx in Advance Guys!!!!!!
