too much work. I know my ram is low, but the only game that I own that I can't max is Bioshock Infinite. I generally don't go out to buy the newest games anyway. hell I dunno if I even own any major releases from this year. last year yes, but not this year.

I live in Canada. I think we get an extra two weeks or something IIRC. and it isn't actually sent. just prepared. I think that if we get money back we don't need to send it in right away anyway.

got two of those. Even if I can use higher resolutions, I don't really need to. 1080p is good enough for me.
