Bad luck! I'm waiting on prices dropping and capacity increasing, I would want a 1TB minimum for my main drive, having fibre internet I seem to fill my drives very quickly with a load of stuff I don't need, and even having a 2TB normal HDD now I still run out of space after a few months and hate having to sort through it all working out what I want and what I don't

And then having to find somewhere to copy it to before I wipe and reinstall :s


I've since learned that partitioning is a good idea


Maybe, you should start slowing down on the dls and rethink what you dl, to only dl stuff that you know your going to use?

lol I always plan that with each new install, seems to work fine for a while and then next thing I know I feel I need to save the entire internet in-case of judgement day or something


I edited my last post with a few links for your 7870

Well my TigerDirect package got here and it isn't what I was expecting. I got a gift card for $500 from them. My purchase was about $450. Their little letter said they apologize for not sending me my items, but hopefully this will come in hamdy when the items I ordered are back in stock. I mean WTF?!?! Just reimburse my damn CC you dumb crappers!

Not sure what to do now. Guess I could call my CC company and put in a stop order. Then I could purchase the items from New Egg or some place else.
