    When the mrs. spends over £200 without consulting me on 'things for the home', and a new pushchair for the littlun.

    Yet I'm not allowed to buy a GTX 770? Pah, double standards.

    Edit: That seems petty, more information. We have a perfectly functional pushchair that is in as good condition as when we bought it. The old one cost over £200 anyway, we didn't need a new one. Home stuff isn't anything useful, just aesthetically pleasing things like pictures and new lampshades to go with her 'theme'.

    Buy my 770. It will go with your theme nicely.

    I would if I had the money to spare.

    How much power do those things use anyway? And i've got a single 670, would a 770 be a pretty big difference?

    Would it be worth it from an HD7850? I might be interested :)

    I've got about 7000 on the memory and 1200 on the core, so i've got some improvement; but i'm thinking my i3 3220 is holding it back a bit. I think a K part overclocked would see quite a bit of difference over a better GPU.

    Took myself to A & E at 3am last Thursday morning with chest pains, after being yo-yo'd between a & e and the out of hours doctor for an hour they finally decided there was something wrong with me and dosed me up with heart medication just in case and admitted me. Finally on the ward I got diagnosed with pericarditis and had lots of people coming to listen to my chest as it is unusual to be so well pronounced and for someone of my age and gender to have it. After my lovely 11 hour hospital trip I was allowed to go home with anti-inflammatories.

    It is still ruining my life as it doesn't seem to be getting better and I'm unable to work whilst I feel like I'm having a heart attack constantly. already had my medication increased to the maximum dose by my gp and put on tramadol for the pain but it isn't helping much so think I will have to go back and see him. Just sick of being exhausted as I can't lie flat to sleep and being in constant pain.

    People believing they should get things for free. Bunch of pillocks raging about Metro: Redux not being free for PC. Apparently rebuilding the entirety of Metro: 2033 into the last Light engine and changing a good chunk of the gameplay constitutes a "Patch", rather than, say, a complete rebuild and update.

    Inconveniencing my life: Sennheiser IE6 earphones just died.

    Now to decide on the replacement... IE60s are tempting given they cost about £100 less than the IE80s!

    That annoys me too, and while I don't think it should be free, it'd be nice if they gave a discount to owners of the originals like they did with DX:HR's 'Directors cut'...
