I have seen the future, and it's damn expensive!

Recommended Posts

you can contribute alot of the rising board cost to the sky high price of copper....

 

last year it was going for a $1.00 a pound....earlier this year it's been almost $5.00 a pound and no looks of comming down....?

if you put it in a case, how do you view it? with a mirror?

 

heh heh... brings to mind a good old Motley Crue song. "... Hot Child! Always walked behind you for the rear view, rear view..." Slice of Your Pie, from the Dr. Feelgood album. Ok... I feel old now.:P

 

But, I do hope this is not the sign of the future standard. This motherboard, the Venus (which I would have actually paid for), a few of the Fatal1ty boards... all with a hefty pricetag. Things like this are gonna push my retirement back to the funeral zone. :sweat:
