Just Googled my common gaming nickname. Sorry if this post bumps randomly and is 1000 years old, but I thought this was pretty funny.

Thanks for the b-day wishes guys!

Hah, that's pretty awesome, googling your nickname to find a happy birthday thread about you.

As far as I can see it's still a while until your birthday; so happy "5-months until your birthday - day" (Well, 5 months and a few days, eh...)

You know, the fact you never said thanks for the birthday wishes has kept me awake at nights for the last 4.5 years. Finally I can rest- *collapses*

I guess your PC just doesn't like you. In 1,5 years I've had my new PC, I've only had to reboot it due to crashing twice. And one of them was due to getting faulty memory from the shop.

1.5 years for me:
* BSOD while configuring themes. Obviously it was time for a Windows reinstall. (Dec 2011)
* Failing fan. (Aug 2011)
* Another failing fan (Jan 2012) (Few days ago ffs. Leave me alone you silicon garbage pile, for once.)
* Failing power supply (Powering on the PC became a hassle.) (Jun 2011)
* Hard drive failure (C:\) (Jul 2010)
* Another hard drive failure imminent (?) (Jul 2011 - now), weird clicks from the case from time to time
* IOH getting seriously hot, an extra fan was required (Jul 2010)
* Processor cooling paste losing its efficiency (Jul 2011)

That's off the top of my head alone.

Maybe it would help if you'd hug the case from time to time, caress the hard drive, kiss the video card. Do your... business... with the... DVD drive... You know.

Well if you were smart like me you could have bought RF1 for €0.99 during a Steam sale, and never have to worry about RF1 CD1 ever again.

Agreed.

That's why I fully converted into laptops.

I don't do my laptop, but I'm as mobile as I can be.

So the only was I could bring games around with me was to sacrifice the big bulky desktops and spend a little bit more money on lappys.

With laptops you need to pay more for the same processing power, but if it fits your needs better then hey, it's worth it.

Completely true, which is why I don't own a laptop, and only own a desktop.

You may not have realized it when you posted, but that's such a Captain Obvious thing to say. It's like saying cars own rollerskates any day if you want to travel on roads.

Well, obviously, you either bought the wrong computer or the wrong parts. And it sounds like you have a serious cooling problem.

Laptops were only good for me when I was in college. I hate how weak they are compared to desktops and I hate how short their lifespans tend to be. Unfortunately, I'm stuck with one because I can't afford to build a new desktop right now.

Cooling is fine now, just gets a bit loud during gaming.
And you can never be sure whether you buy the right parts. It all boils down to luck, and obviously luck has not been on my side.

It takes research to find out what the right parts are. And reading the right reviews.

Reviewers are not just reviewing a model of a brand, they are reviewing one particular unit. You will end up buying a different unit that may or may not behave the same. No matter how reputable an item is, there are always defective units around.

Research and review reading do not guarantee a well behaving computer. Simple as that. It is a good practice though and vastly improves the odds in your favour.

It also depends a lot on where you buy from. For example, more than half of the things I have ever bought from TigerDirect were defective or DOA. And proper research also includes looking up enthusiast forums where they discuss compatibility between specific parts and setups.
