My gfx card and motherboard died a few months back. After playing IL2 since the demo, I was starting to get bored. Some of you may know the feeling, you go online get into loads of scraps as carm as a hindu cow and sail through most of them.

However, I'm itching to get back now! Grrrrrr!

Being a student, I'm often skint but I should be able to afford a new rig by the end of summer! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Maybe I'll learn how to level bomb effectively instead. Would love to fly with a select group of people who use lots of teamwork. I'm yearning to do my favorite thing, which is organize large co-ordinated strikes on enemy airfields in dogfight servers.

I'm in the mood to buy loads of goodies as well, like all that new Saitek stuff and Track IR!

Although I'd LOVE a long throw joystick!

You want to fly with a group of fellas that know how to bomb? I suggest you join FS War when you get back. Its one of the best online experiences there is in my opinion. Over 70 people in a server with a common goal. http://www.forgottenskies.com/ForgottenWars/default.aspx#

I had my GFX card burn out two months ago. A few weeks ago I finally got around to RMA'ing it and just got the replacement last week. Turned out to be a pretty good deal. I sent EVGA my defective 7800GT and they sent me back a 7900GS KO. Better performance and lower temperatures http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

For awhile there I was itching like mad to fly IL2. The funny part is, now that I got the rig back up and running I've been spending most of my time flying Falcon 4. I guess the thought of going back online and getting pwned by all those spitfires or doras killed my enthusiasm.
