My computer pretty much killed itself in the last week, so I'll probably order the parts this weekend.

It sounded like the disc drive slipped out, simultaneously snapping the video card and the ram stick and the shards got stuck in the fan.

Of course it wasn't that bad, it just makes a really nasty noise when I turn it on.

Is that... serious... or a joke... :)

It could be a simple fan needs replacing, or just cleaned out.

Yeah If I had to say something about it I'd say that it's the fan.

I suppose it's fortunate you don't have anything to say about it then, huh... Wait... :)

Where are we going with this thread again? Oh, that's right.

Says it's on pre-order which means that they have it at another store and they will transfer it for you.

Otherwise:

It seems that the HD5770 is out of stock completely, I'll take a look at the local stores because I'm sure they have them all around.

I'm also thinking of getting this instead, opine?

There are a couple of other 5770's in stock.

Are they all the same?
Specifications aren't my strong point.
