Here I am at a LAN party with my little gaming box. It’s lightweight, has one harddrive, one dvd drive, and uses onboard sound and video. Damn near everyone else here has tricked out systems with quad cores, multiple huge drives, $1300 paint jobs on their cases, water cooled, etc. Many times I hear “Oh, this isn’t working.” “Try this driver!” “Ah shit it’s crashing.” Finally someone asks me “What video card are you running?” “Onboard.” Cries of “What? No way? Are you shitting me” and laughter. Then it gets quiet when I say “Yeah, onboard. If you will notice, I haven’t had a single problem.” There is quiet agreement all around. Muhahahahaha.
