  1. Hello, TechSpot community.

    My name is Wade, and I've been a member of the TechSpot nucleus for some time, although under a different moniker.

    I've modified two stock systems (an HP by throwing in an AGP Nvidia Geforce 5200, overlcoked; an Emachines by throwing in an X1900GT [a spectacular value on Newegg, I bought two]) and built one custom, specs are in signature.

    I'm something of an overclocker. Using an Athlon 64 3800+ on Socket 939, I threw the front side bus speed from 200 up to 217MHz, acheiving an operating frequency of 2.718 GHz, as opposed to stock 2.41GHz.

    I play Battlefield 2 [w/ SF Xpack] , Call of Duty 2, Splinter Cell [PT and CT], Quake 4, Medieval 2:TW, CSS, and some other single-player games. My handle is always baronjocelin or Kt3mplar (alt. Ktemplar or K-templar).

    I've been in eight clans for COD2, and 3 for BF2.

    I'm not as proficient as a technician, but I consider myself pretty well-versed in computer lore.

    Looking forward to chatting on the forums.
    Live long and prosper,
    Wade Redfearn​

    Thanks for the tips, C600.

    I remember the first time I made my account I was an information leech: I asked, and asked again, but never gave the gift of a solution.

    My goal this time is to be productive, and help out, instead of just suckering information and time.

    And to you, as well, monsieur.

    I do. I use a Spyder Pilot with a twenty inch barrel and a buttplate on my 20oz CO2 canister, and play roughly five times a month.

    Originally from Ontario, Canada, but I've lived in NC for 11 years so I consider myself properly countrified.
    It is good to see a southern gamer from time to time, don't find a lot of them (except for console).
    I did see a guy from White Oak that was running two 8800's post here, though.

    I was born in Fayetteville and lived in Raeford for 14 years. Then we moved to the city, it kills me lol. Yea you're contrified, i would consider you anyway. All my friends in Raeford are console gamers, they always critisize my pc, but I can upgrade for a hell of alot cheaper then they can lol.
