Re: Radeon R9100 recap

G'day trodas,

At least you saved it from the landfill that's always a bonus in my book! additionally spare GFX cards come in quite handy especially when fault finding older systems :D

Re: Need some help as I'm having possible bad cap issues with an Epox 8RDA3+ mobo.

Re: Need some help as I'm having possible bad cap issues with an Epox 8RDA3+ mobo.
