Did you buy a Monster-branded Cat 5 cable to go with it?


LOL

You know, audigy/x-fi is supposed to take sound load off the cpu, so if you see benchmarks it lowers cpu util by 1-6%. I think it's a bullshit wagon right there, but it's probably a lot smaller than the killer nic one.

Well not only that but it also improves sound quality as well. So you win two pennies there :)

Wait. $150 for a network card?

You seriously bought this?

...

Do you know how much weed you could have bought with that?

I would return it ASAP.

Weed doesn't actually lower your ping, it just makes it seems like it did :P

Damn it Michael, I'm waiting for your word! Did you get a decrease in ping or not?

Well...the card was supposed to be delivered today and apparently it was, but not to ME. Trying to find out what the hell happened.

Haha now you can't even return it xD

Unless... hopefully whoever got it will see it as just as**tty network card and deliver it to you.

Otherwise you're f**ked & out $150.

Yeah it was signed by a 'Brian Dupang'...??? f**kin p**sed man.

Went like this:

NCIX - 'Brian signed for your parcel, he lives with you, he's on your answering machine when we called it'.

Me - 'I don't even know anyone named Brian Dupang, I don't even live at the location of where the item was supposed to be shipped to(goes to my parents house), and I don't have a home phone answering machine'. 'Everything I've ever ordered from NCIX has went to that location except this'.

NCIX - 'Oh...well I see here they might have got the addresses mixed up, I will check back with UPS and contact you when we find out more information'.

If they give you the runaround, call your credit card company and contest the charge.
