Agile, you play the "brand" card wherever you are and its annoying.

Do I? I was unaware of that. I am sorry if it comes across that way. Also man, I was kind of upset at those replies - I did not go off on some wild flames and tried to explain myself rather respectfully albeit sarcastically in some places.Difference here is that we are a community, not an official forum run by any company.
Very true and it is an admirable thing to be into something and find people with similar passions.Bottom line is you other guys DON'T. You use it as a common ground and rally around your masters.
Yeah, its a company site and there are total Voodo fanboys there. But I do try to remain objective. Oftentimes I cannot express my opinion. Like for example, I like my Voodoo m860 notebook, but it is not as great as I expected it was going to be. If I were to buy a notebook now, I'd go with the 7700. In many ways I think AW has cheesed out, but more so on their desktops. The reason I feel this way is because I had a predator and it was rather unique until everybody and their brother started having one.
But in many ways this site might as well be a company site. But I see you guys being pretty lax with people posting stuff and being fair and objective. A while back I would see you freak when guys posted other companies. Frankly I was shocked when you started to get more open and let people talk about other systems and post other systems. So kudos to you.
At the Voodoo site, they have people come and and go. And regulars whether a Voodoo owner or not are welcome there. ANd some of the harshest critics of Voodoo are the owners themselves. I know you have seen this raig. From time to time I may defend Voodoo when I see people making false claims or misdirecting frustration. I know you see people blaming AW for say a bad PSU when it is the psu manufacturer's fault not AWs. You see what I am getting at. We like our systems and we defend them when necessary and voice our opinions. But I do not arbitrarily bash other systems. They have other people for that. When I system sucks and I think it sucks, then I say it. I don't say a system sucks because it is a certain brand. You can see that in my posts.
Now I liked my Area-51m even though it did have some stability issues. The case was the best I have seen. The magnesium alloy chassis is wonderful.
And I get miffed when I see people posting about bad AW tech support. I never had any problems with them for tech support or RMAs. They sent me a new BFG 5950, a dvd combo drive for my 51m, and replaced my mnotherboard on my Aurora without any problems. So I am a big fan of that.
And may my opinion change? My opinions change with the times? Just because I state an opinion one day does not mean that it is going to be the same thing the next day. New developments happen and new knowledge comes to light. Ya know? Occasionally I may say the wrong thing or do not get the point across that I am trying to make.
But thanks man. Obviously I have to tighten up a bit. Things like this happen in life to teach you lessons. It just mad me aware that I was not being more discerning and unclear in my posts.
For that I should thank you.
Craig, also this isn't a Voodoo avatar. I am just a fan of the occult and the supernatural. It's more like a tribal mask. Though I can see the similarity.
Anyway man. Thanks . This was fun. Have a wonderful and safe holiday.
