More about advice please
  1. I don't see anything that looks incompatible. You will need an Operating System though.

    HOLY BOLLOCKS !! i cannot believe i forgot that !! now im all spent out - i'm guessing it wont 'operate' without an 'operating system'? ... sometimes i baffle myself just how stupid my impatience makes me haha

    is there any other way around NOT paying the £60-£70?? is it possible to share a friends windows 7?
  3. Not legally. You can use the computer with a free OS like Linux Ubuntu, but I'm not sure about game compatibility. But at least you can use the PC until you can scrape together some coin for Windows.

    nice mate, cheers.. soooo, is there much chance of getting caught using an illegal windows 7 ?
  5. Not really something that can be discussed here. In fact someone would get themselves in trouble (on this forum) answering that question.

    any idea what the problem might be mate? I will check that photobucket out this second - thanks! I just clicked the link and it shows the picture now though.. just wondering if you could give me some advice before I send it back and pay affair amount of money without knowing what the problem might be... they want me to send the graphics card back so they can test it - but if the problem isn't the graphics card they will still charge me just for testing it?? any help be appreciated

  18. Nope, doesn't work. Once you upload the photo, it gives you three links, Direct Link, Forum Link, Thumbnail link, copy and paste the Forum link in here.

    when i uninstall the drivers - the artifacts go away and the machine runs asit should .. does this mean faulty graphics card? ... its not 3 months old yet.. surely it shouldn't have a fault already .. but then agin fault are 'supposed' to happen at any time i guess haha
  23. Return the GPU, it's faulty. It should not cost you a single penny. It's not your fault. If the shop wants money tell them to bug off and contact the manufacturer.
