Of course, 500 gigs are over $100 in Newegg. My card cost me 120. Not worth getting 500 gigs.

meh, i have 4 hard drives on my comp, 2x 250's, a 120, and an old 60 ide (i use for back ups). I have room for one more, and I'm seriously considering putting in a 500. getting low on space. One of the 250's has nothing but complete seasons of anime on it.

Then you realise that there are people like me who are students and don't actually have real jobs... no-one will hire me in my free hours because my availability is that bad, so I only earn $50 a week from tutoring (lol two students; keep in mind this is $AU) and that's just for pocket change.

Compared to me, yes, you are rich. :O

OMG YOU'RE WITH TELSTRA. SPAWN OF THE DEVIL.

Yeah, my brother's actually still in uni but he has a job (engineering shortage haha), and god in heaven, just working part time and he's pulling in more than my mother (who, admittedly, also works part time).

But yes. My computer fails so badly I can't even play Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy. Mainly because I lack a GFX card. >_> And my parents won't let me buy one even though I can afford one.

i was just stating that when xavier said i was rich just wanted to say its not really all that much.

as an aside nice to see more aussie type moon fans

...can I borrow your parents for a bit? My father knows more about computers than I do - way more - and so does my brother... the only person left in my family that doesn't know much about computers (my mother) has no interest in them. T_T
