Howdy Y'all!!

Postby Keean » Fri Nov 20, 2009 10:55 am

Hey everyone! I just wanted to take a minute to introduce myself here to the community. Let's see, where to start!

How did I find the forums?
I was building a new computer through CyberPower Inc. and I wanted to learn about all the parts I could possible put in my new monster machine. So I started going to all the review sites I could and gathering as much information as possible. I immediately became aware that legitreviews.com is probably one of the best, if not the best, reviews website out there.

What System am I running?
Well, I have it posted below in my signature. I'm actually still waiting for it to arrive as my last system fell victim to my wife unplugging it from the surge-protector...AAAHHH!!!!!

Are you an Intel or AMD Fan Boy?
AMD all the way. Back when I first got in to gaming, I was adamant about having AMD parts. I didn't know better then, except that my role-models of the time were using them and they had nothing but praise to send their way. I'm glad now that I'm older and able to comprehend more that I made the right choice ;) Go AMD!

What type of gaming are you into?
My original gaming passion was RTS's. Starcraft was offically the first computer game I played online. I remember how horribly I sucked at the time too!! After a little while I was introduced to Ultima Online, around the time Renassance was released. I fell in love with MMO's at that time and continue that passion through this day. I play Dark Age of Camelot, and I've played pretty much every other MMO that's been out and popular at some point in time.

Are you an overclocker?
Well, I plan on being one once I learn a little bit more about it and actually have a computer to do it with!

I am new to being on the enthusiast side of the community, but I am more than willing to learn. I am currently in the military, so my time spent on learning is sometimes limited, heh. Glad to be a part of this forum and community now though! :supz:

I am actually, but my schedule is going to keep me from being able to enjoy it as it's released. The last one I played actually was Tiberian Sun, so I have some catching up to do on the story-line!!

Remember that the cutting edge of technology will always cut deeper in the pocket book. Keep a look out for deals and ask others to prevent the costly mistakes.
