    OK, serious interview questions :

    What got you started in computers?

    What got you started in the world of modding and OC'ing?

    When are you going to get a gf? :wicked: (I can help with that :p)
  15. Max_87

    Max_87 huehuehue

    Sure MD :mrgreen: As long as my house has enough room for you two ;)

    1st question:
    Hm.... I still remember that when my dad bought our family's very first PC, a really crap one. CS & RA2 was really popular at that time, but my PC is simply not fast enough for it. I was still very numb about computers at that time but I started to get interested in knowing why my PC is not powerful enough for the games :lol: I really wanted to know why a 600MHz celeron PC in cybercafe is better than mine when running games :haha: So, I saved money to get upgrades, ask a lot of questions and eventually, I got interested to PC stuffs and finally become who I am now :haha:

    2nd question:
    That's when I got my second major upgrade of my celeron 600MHz system. I got myself a GF2MX and managed to get many games to run on my system. I thought that as long as the gfx card is fast, all the games would run fast no matter what. However, I slowly noticed that processor speed is quite important too. One day, I came accross an overclocking article, so.... :haha: The tiime when I started to get into case modding was after I started overclocking my system, which makes my system hotter, so I started to mod my case to make it cooler. That's how I got myself into PC modding :mrgreen:

    The Celeron 600MHz was dead(killed by a dead mobo) :( It's a kickass overclocker! It can hit 1200MHz if it wasn't limited by the mobo

    3rd question:
    hahaha! I don't know :haha:
