Some things you buy and may not replace if they broke, I would replace mine straight away! I don't like triples, they tend to dominate a room to much, take up a heap of space and I'm not a fan of bezels, with that said that's my opinion.
AMD might finally reveal their Polaris 10 and Polaris 11 GPUs at a live streaming event during Computex 2016 in addition to the Radeon 490 card.
NVIDIA and AMD has been battling it out for the past few years in terms of who has the greatest video cards. The former recently unveiled their GTX 1080 which surpasses all of the current GPUs available today, but the latter may be storing a surprise with the new Polaris 10 and Polaris 11 GPUs.

PC users who are budget-conscious tend to move towards Radeon cards because they offer more value in a good ratio with the price. However, NVIDIA's selections are still more powerful despite their steep price tags.
AMD could also offer more accelerated processing units (APU) besides the Radeon RX 480 Polaris 10 and Polaris 11 video cards, ChristianToday has learned. They could be featured alongside the Radeon R9 490 in the upcoming livestream event.
The GTX 1080 has been shown to beat even NVIDIA's own most powerful card from last generation at roughly half the price off. AMD would need to dish out video cards that could do the same or even better if they want more consumers to choose their GPUs.
AMD has unveiled the new Polaris Radeon R9 490 that will go toe to toe with the GTX 1080 at the high-end range. Unfortunately, there are still no benchmarking results available for a direct comparison of the two.
The Radeon R9 490 using the Polaris architecture will feature HDMI 2.0 and Display Port 1.3, Neurogadget reported. It is expected to launch in June which is also the same time the GTX 1070 will be released.
AMD's Polaris 10 and Polaris 11 GPU architecture is said to be less powerful than the new Pascal technology from NVIDIA. However, the price value of the Radeon cards could be their entry point in the market.
Official specs of the cards from AMD are still nowhere to be found. NVIDIA's GTX 1080 has 8GB VRAM and a power requirement of just 180W.
AMD is expected to reveal their full line of Polaris 10 and Polaris 11 video cards such as the Radeon RX 480 or the R9 490 at the Computex 2016 event. Fans will finally be able to see whether it can go up against the GTX 1080 and the GTX 1070.

And in my opinion, is outrages,
The Australian Pricing for the GTX 1080 is here
May 27, 2016
Pricing for the GeForce GTX 1080 Graphics Cards has finally been revealed and Australians are expected to pay around $1179-$1199 AUD depending on brand.
The models listed first are the Founder’s Cards – which is the new name for the reference models. Third-party models are coming at a later date which are expected to be cheaper than the new Founder’s Editions.
Here’s the pricing breakdown for each model from Mwave.com.au:
MSI GTX 1080 Founders Edition – $1179
ASUS GTX 1080 Founders Edition – $1199
Gigabyte GTX 1080 Founders Edition – $1199
EVGA GTX 1080 Founders Edition – $1179
The USD pricing for the cards were announced for $699 USD for the GTX 1080 Founders Edition which equates to about $968 AUD when directly converted. Big difference but this has always been expected with IT products in Australia. The cards are available for purchase from 11PM AEST tonight from selected IT retailers.

( Don't use youtube tags, they'll only work with flash - which, let's be honest, should be removed from all computers by now )

It doenst seem cool considering my paypal is linked to my bank account. I think when it is back up I will change some settings.
After every flight, UPS pilots fill out a form, called a "gripe sheet" which tells mechanics about problems with the aircraft. The mechanics correct the problems, document their repairs on the form, then pilots review the gripe sheets before the next flight.
Never let it be said that ground crews lack a sense of humor. Here are actual maintenance complaints submitted by UPS pilots ("P") and solutions recorded ("S") by maintenance engineers:
P: Left inside main tire almost needs replacement.
S: Almost replaced left inside main tire.
P: Test flight OK, except auto-land very rough.
S: Auto-land not installed on this aircraft.
P: Something loose in cockpit
S: Something tightened in cockpit
P: Dead bugs on windshield.
S: Live bugs on back-order.
P: Autopilot in altitude-hold mode produces a 200 feet per minute descent
S: Cannot reproduce problem on ground.
P: Evidence of leak on right main landing gear.
S: Evidence removed.
P: DME volume unbelievably loud.
S: DME volume set to more believable level.
P: Friction locks cause throttle levers to stick.
S: That's what friction locks are for.
P: IFF inoperative in OFF mode.
S: IFF always inoperative in OFF mode.
P: Suspected crack in windshield.
S: Suspect you're right.
P: Number 3 engine missing.
S: Engine found on right wing after brief search.
P: Aircraft handles funny.
S: Aircraft warned to: straighten up, fly right, and be serious.
P: Target radar hums.
S: Reprogrammed target radar with lyrics.
P: Mouse in cockpit.
S: Cat installed.
P: Noise coming from under instrument panel. Sounds like a midget pounding on something with a hammer.
S: Took hammer away from midget
