Ahh the N64, I remember my mate lending it me to play Conkers Bad Fur day when I smashed my own face in with a brick, It hurt to laugh as hard as it made me laugh... 
Plus it was my first exposure to the multilayer mayhem that is Mario Kart (now I wish I hadn't sold my Wii)

  Platstation purely because it was my first console, although last gen I was a Gamecube owner as I came to it late and wanted Resi 4. During last gen I was more of a PC gamer.

Its been a while since I blogged, but just now I was waxing lyric about Descendents and Bad Religion to someone who wanted some Punk to listen to. Now music and games are probably two of my biggest hobbies/passions.  
 
Now music I know I only became properly interested in my first year of uni, MUSE was the catalyst for that.  
 
Games on the other hand  I become really passionate about the year my brother bought me a Playstation (which was 96). Never has a grey box bought a boy so many hours of joy. I think the key to games becoming a major pass time was the fact that out of the 4 of us in my friendship group 3 had PS's and we spent ages around each others houses playing, swapping, talking about games and trying to out do each other in which ever game we were playing.  
 
So the Playstation was the catalyst, and the game that did it was the original society destroying crime sim... GTA.  
 
I blame my years of drug abuse, prostitute beating and OAP bothering on that game... 
 
So what about you guys when did you become a gamer?

  So I'm going to be starting a Masters soon, or at least I think I will be. You see I've been house hunting for the past two weeks, and so far nothing. My Course starts in two weeks and I rang the Housing Office at Sussex Uni today and they said "No, go away we have no room at the Inn" (It was much more polite than that more like "oh no sorry mate we've got no rooms")  
 
Now I feel like I've exhausted all possibilities and nothing. I've been on gumtree constantly and the student pad website. I've even rang within minutes of adverts going up and the response is always the same, "oh theres like 5 people coming to view the house, can you come right now?" erm... no I live in Oxford (Just for the record a couple of times I went specifically for one place or two places that sounded good, I still feel like I haven't come clean since walking into these places).  
 
Now you might be thinking I just have stupidly high standards (or that I'm just stupid) but I really don't. I'm a pretty laid back, average guy, I leave my fair share of dirty plates etc. I mean I was and still am a student! But these places were beyond anything I've ever seen! I went to view one place which looked student shabby from the outside. I thought this looks okay, knocked on the door. The guy who answered the door looked like Lurch from The Adams Family. He had the kind of palour that only comes from massive and consistent liver abuse the house also stank of death. I've repeated this experience twice now. So I decided from now I don't rush down to look at one or two places I go when I have three to four good places to look at. Only problem is these places go real quick. Case in point there was a beautiful place by the Royal Pavilion the girl sent me pictures we talked for ages on the phone, talked to the other house mates also. Perfect, we arranged I would come down today and sign, hand over money etc. But the landlord got annoyed the room was still empty and told them to fill the room that day, so she had to give it away...  
 
Worst part of all this is that because I've been spending every moment house hunting I haven't been giving my games the love they deserve! 
 
...and the dude from the housing office told me "yeah its a renters market, more rooms than there are renters" I think he's living in a different world to mine...

Right I've been doing  alittle research as I'm not fully up to speed with the nmid/low end of the market since I recently upgraded to a GTX275.  
 
And my suggestion of a GTS250 over a 4770 doesn't seem to be a valid one. The 4770 performs on a par with it, so I'd go with the 4770.

What are prices like for the 4850? i know its older than  the 4770 but here in england they are priced around the same and I think the 4850 performs better...  
 
Or you could go GTX250 they are about 80 quid here thats the equivilent of a 9800GTX+ that will peform better than either of cards you mentioned and should give you more headroom for newer games...
