So my machine is driving me mad

Recently my machine has been playing up badly. And it’s really starting to frustrate me. Basically every time I start the machine when it’s been off for a while (but not unplugged from the mains) it crashes at the start of any game that uses SLI. Random. I’ll upload screenshots after this. I thought I’d isolated it down to one of my graphics cards but I RMA’d it and now it’s still doing it!!! So yeah it’s really frustrating L

My inclination is to just say screw it and drop £900 on a 2500k, 8GB of Corsair 1600Mhz 1.5v ram, a Gigabyte P67-UD4 and 2x EVGA GTX 570’s. But I have to keep telling myself, NO!!!

I’m sposed to be saving for a laptop, and I’ve found a few that I would like to get. The first is the Sony Vaio Z Series. Its everything you could want in a laptop, i7 3.33Ghz Dual Core, Lots of Ram, Nvidia GT 330M, 13.1” 1600x900 Display, 1.35Kg, 10Hr Battery Life, Just everything. Problem is its £1600. Which is a lot, but I guess you get what you pay for. The other option is a nice little ASUS 13.3” I found. It’s half the price, and has less performance and is heavier but still maintains the same maximum battery life. So for now I’m going to hang on and see what happens.

Really looking forward to my new case coming :D Keeping my old one because it has lots of sentimental value. It’s been the only constant since I First built my PC 7 years ago. How things change. Anyway, that’s all for now J

    Just use your pik to hack at it until you reach the surface again, that should work...
