Haha, nope. That's pretty amusing/interesting, though. Yeah, I think it might be hard for you considering your location. I don't really want to drive out to meet some stranger although I did that to buy my video card but it was a lot closer and on the way to work so I was willing to do it.Because I am addicted to building? I bought one in June, yes, but I won a bunch of parts in an amateur modding contest hosted by Dazmode (case, PSU, mobo, watercooling kit, among other things) and I need a CPU for that machine as it seems against the spirit of the contest to just sell off the prizes. I guess I could buy a 9700k instead, and remove the 8700k from my current machine for use in the new build.
As for the 8086k, that ties in to my search for a vintage PC/XT case. I am planning to do a water cooled tribute build in the old case, using the 8086k in honour of the original 8088 (an 8086 with an 8 bit external bus), and entering it in next years modding contest (deadline is likely December).
Thanks for the heads up regarding the other forums/kijiji. I am in Halifax, and comfortable meeting people locally, but there is less selection and prices tend to be higher.
Over the years I have seen a couple of fubars playing Urban Terror (old Quake3 mod). Are you one of them?
