My brave little toaster, my flying eagle, my soul, died today. My Nvidia 7600GS. I turned my computer on when I came home, and nothing showed up on the monitor. I figured a cable was loose. Nope.

I proceeded to clean everything, seat and reseat, try a different board and power supply. Nothing worked. I plugged in some POS from the late 90's into the PCI slot (the GS was in the AGP) and it worked.

Definitely a dead GPU. :'(

This would be great news if I had money! I could buy an awesome new computer! But I'm poor. So it mostly just sucks. I'm torn between being lazy and buying a pretty nice computer off newegg for 500, or replacing the MB, GPU, and CPU for about 350-400. Newegg seems a better value though, shiny new case, 1 TB drive, better RAM, a keyboard, and a mouse. Can never have too many of those. I only have 5 mice and 4 keyboards, so I really need some more of those.

You need one more mouse so you can get them married to the keyboards without committing polygamy.

I always knew you were a murderer deep down.

Screen-capped and sent to FBI.
