    well, I just orders my 8600gt yesterday and I need to know the proper way to react when I get it. Should I jump around saying gibberish or should I be simpler and just start trash my place?

    I need help so can you guys help me out, how did you react when you got your 8600, 8800(lucky bastard) or what ever?

    P.S: don't know if this is the proper section so if you need to move it, please do.

    So you are asking how to react when you get your graphics card?

    If so, you're crazy. What kinda topic is this?

    Take the graphics card and throw it out of the window.
    Alternatively stick it in your pc and play games.

    Behind you! I know you looked!
    Well, I guess I was pretty pleased last time I got a graphics card separately, seeing as I could finally play Half-Life 2 and Doom 3.
    I didn't exactly jump around though :\. Just put it in and started playing.

    maybe I'll just become speechless and every day just stare at it for one month then play it. [​IMG]

    How I reacted? Well considering how long ago it was and my general knowledge at the time I had someone put it in for me at the store so it was warranted on their dime. I was happy, but didn't act stupid, but it really opened some doors like DOOM and stuff.

    Best reaction would be to place the graphics card in a package, go to the post office and ill pm you the address. Then send me it and thats how you would react.

    Its just a graphics card dude, calm down.

    I wouldn't celebrate at all for a measly 8600 GT. Now if I got a 4870X2, I'd go apeshit all over the house.

    The best way to celebrate a new graphics card is with porn...err....by testing all your games and grinning like a madman.

    Yeah, you never forget your first.

    Mine was a Voodoo 3 PCI (16 mb, I think) . I was finally able to get my P1 100 mhz to run Quake (1). On a LAN no less.

    My first graphics card is GeForce 7200 SE, sadly I obtained it 3 months ago [​IMG] and it's still along way before I got my hands on 9600 GT

    Although, the first time I got my graphics card I thought I've owned my entire family member, sadly, it's not true.
