    What would you guys do in my position?

    So being the OT forum, i can ask this in here :lol:

    Well the problem is, my ex (for about 2 weeks now) found it nescarry to strenghten her words "it's over, and i'm keeping the TV" by throwing my computer out of the window... off course the computer was standing in my bedroom so he fell 2 floors down... you all can figure out i need a new one :teeth:

    Now im basiclly stuck between 2 choices.
    #1 I'm buy one right now, this instance a pentium 4, 3,06/800Mhz 180 Gig hard disk etc, really good PC, not the best money can buy, but still a mean grey gaming machine... if i can buy this i can pay it off in 10 months, so i can pay 97 euro each month, no problems here
    #2 I can save for 7 months and buy a little bit better computer in about 7-8 months, the problem is because i dont have that sum off money now i have to save for that little bugger....

    So what should i do, buy the first one with
    Intel® Pentium® 4 Processor HT Technologie 3.2GHz/ 800MHz FSB
    120GB Serial ATA [7200rpm met 8MB DataBurstTM
    128MB GeForce FX5200 8x AGP kaart met TV-Out via S-Video
    Soundblaster Audigy2 5.1 Digital Sound Card incl FireWire OEM

    or save my money for about 7-8 months and see whats on the market then?

    really dont know what to do now :S

    Well....as for buying a computer....you can almost buy the top of the line stuff (not including monitor and keyboard/mouse) for about 700US dollars. You will have to build it yourself though, or have someone else build it.


    As for what you should do....

    If you can prove the computer was yours, you should take legal action and require your EX to buy you a new one. Its not like the movies. It is NOT legal to throw and break your EXs stuff just because you are mad at them.

    Take her to court over it. Get a replacement computer that way, and also argue about the TV. If it isn't hers, then she can't take it.

    Then, have her pay for your legal fees.

    well actually, we bought it together, on her name :( and i bought it from her later on, but as it is still registerd on her name, i have no legs to stand on in front of court, already thought about that one, but heck i guess sometimes you're just getting scr**ed right?

    anywayz, that compu was a little out of date so i needed a new one no matter what and she is willing to give me about 250 euro for a new one, no reall hurt done after all i suppose

    250 euro is about 225 usdollars right?


    Seeing the position you are in you probably cant construct your own computer, nor do you have the time to wait for the parts.

    Take her 250 euros, put it as a down payment on the best computer you want/can buy. Then just make payments. Make sure its a decent brand of computer (read: upgradable easily). In a year if some better technology is out....upgrade to it then.

    I say you chloroform her, put her in a tub of ice, steal one of her kidneys, sell it on the black market, and buy a new computer with the money. Two birds with one stone. :thumbsup:

    What do you want with the chloroform? Just steal her kidneys anyway. Both of them.

    Then, with the money, buy a new computer and a dialysis machine. Then throw the dialysis machine out of the window.

    250 Euro is closer to 300 US. If the computer was even a little bit old, it sounds like she's being (financially at least) reasonable about this.

    I'd say it's hopeless. I recommend you find a sniper rifle and a bell tower post haste.

    Wow man, sorry to hear that. My computer is my baby, if someone ever hurt her I'd flame them in the OT so bad!!

    Anyways, that's kind of expensive, down here you can get the parts for a 1.6p4 256 gfx3ti500 for around 200, and only 20$ more for a 40-80mg upgrade. (Assuming you assemble it yourself).

    I would suggest taking her to court, that's obviously uncalled for for someone to do.

    Damn, where's AJ when you need him...

    Anyway, first of all check your insurance. Not many cover you for acts of PMS, but it is worth a try.

    Beyond that, saving for 7 months is the better idea IMO given your current financial position. There is nothing comming out right now that warrants a new PC of any magnitude, apart from Sacred if you are that way inclined. Saving for a few months at least will allow you to grab a decent GFX card (which that FX5200 isn't sorry to say) and CPU at a more affordable price range.

    Whatever you do though, always look on the bright side of life: You are single again ;).
