I think we Bangaloreans are not supposed to play Doom 3. I called up Texonic instruments, who are the official dealers of Gigabyte Graphics card in bangalore. He quoted a price of Rs. 9500/- pus taxes for a 9600pro . What the hell man???? :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil:

The prices here are almost RS. 1000/- to 2000 more than the rest of the country. I am slowly thinking of giving up my plans to buy a graphics card. Who the hell wants to pay such exhorbitant prices for such things???. My PS2 rules. Will take Doom 3 & shove it up Id software's ***

Also please tell me hows chennai?. Is it taxed too. I don't mind going to chennai buying everything & comming back. I think even if I add the travel costs, I will still save some money.

Reclamation of RDX from C-4 Explosives by the Jolly Roger

RDX can be obtained from C-4 explosives with the use of gasoline. It can be used as a booster explosive for detonators or as a high explosive charge.
Material Required

C-4 explosive
2 - pint glass jars, wide mouth
Paper towels
Stirring rod (glass or wood)
Ceramic or glass dish
Heat source
NOTE: Water, Ceramic or glass dish, pan, & heat source are all optional. The RDX can be air dried instead.

Place 1-1/2 teaspoons (15 grams) of C-4 explosive in one of the pint jars. Add 1 cup (240 milliliters) of gasoline.
NOTE: These quantities can be increased to obtain more RDX. For example, use 2 gallons of gasoline per 1 cup of C-4.
Knead and stir the C-4 with the rod until the C-4 has broken down into small particles. Allow mixture to stand for 1/2 hour.

Stir the mixture again until a fine white powder remains on the bottom of the jar.

Filter the mixture through a paper towel into the other glass jar. Wash the particles collected on the paper towel with 1/2 cup (120 milliliters) of gasoline. Discard the waste liquid.
Place the RDX particles in a glass or ceramic dish. Set the dish in a pan of hot water, not boiling and dry for a period of 1 hour.

NOTE: The RDX particles may be air dried for a period of 2 to 3 hours.
R.D.X. 2

R.D.X., also called cyclonite, or composition C-1 (when mixed with plasticisers) is one of the most valuable of all military explosives. This is because it has more than 150% of the power of T.N.T., and is much easier to detonate. It should not be used alone, since it can be set off by a not-too severe shock. It is less sensitive than mercury fulminate, or nitroglycerine, but it is still too sensitive to be used alone.

R.D.X. can be made by the surprisingly simple method outlined hereafter. It is much easier to make in the home than all other high explosives, with the possible exception of ammonium nitrate.

hexamine 500 ml beaker
methenamine glass stirring rod
fuel tablets (50 g)
funnel and filter paper
nitric acid (550 ml) ice bath container (plastic bucket)

distilled water centigrade thermometer

table salt blue litmus paper

ice ammonium nitrate

Place the beaker in the ice bath, (see section 3.13, steps 3-4) and carefully pour 550 ml of concentrated nitric acid into the beaker.
When the acid has cooled to below 20 degrees centigrade, add small amounts of the crushed fuel tablets to the beaker. The temperature will rise, and it must be kept below 30 degrees centigrade, or dire consequences could result. Stir the mixture.
Drop the temperature below zero degrees centigrade, either by adding more ice and salt to the old ice bath, or by creating a new ice bath. Or, ammonium nitrate could be added to the old ice bath, since it becomes cold when it is put in water. Continue stirring the mixture, keeping the temperature below zero degrees centigrade for at least twenty minutes
Pour the mixture into a litre of crushed ice. Shake and stir the mixture, and allow it to melt. Once it has melted, filter out the crystals, and dispose of the corrosive liquid.
Place the crystals into one half a litre of boiling distilled water. Filter the crystals, and test them with the blue litmus paper. Repeat steps 4 and 5 until the litmus paper remains blue. This will make the crystals more stable and safe.
Store the crystals wet until ready for use. Allow them to dry completely using them. R.D.X. is not stable enough to use alone as an explosive.
Composition C-1 can be made by mixing 88.3% R.D.X. (by weight) with 11.1% mineral oil, and 0.6% lecithin. Kneed these material together in a plastic bag. This is one way to desensitize the explosive.
H.M.X. is a mixture of T.N.T. and R.D.X.; the ratio is 50/50, by weight. it is not as sensitive, and is almost as powerful as straight R.D.X.
By adding ammonium nitrate to the crystals of R.D.X. after step 5, it should be possible to desensitize the R.D.X. and increase its power, since ammonium nitrate is very insensitive and powerful. Soduim or potassium nitrate could also be added; a small quantity is sufficient to stabilize the R.D.X.
R.D.X. detonates at a rate of 8550 meters/second when it is compressed to a density of 1.55 g/cubic cm.

:idea: for Rs 13,500/- . these are Nehru Place, Delhi prices


:arrow: 512 MB DDR400 Kingston for Rs 4,050/-

The motherboard is actually a little expensive as compared to ASUS K8V. but it (ASUS K8V) was not available and the urge to get a new system got the better of me.

The 6600GT is definately a better buy, a much faster card, but it is also costlier by about 3k, here is the rate for the PowerColor Radeon 9600XT 256 MB DDR DVI VIVO --- Rs. 11,900.
About the 6600GT offering VIVO, Check out the first model of the Gigabyte 6600GT series which supports VIVO function, here check this out - *
Even MSI have a 6600GT model which supports the VIVO function.

ITS PCI-E and I need a AGP solution, HOW is CLUB 3D XGI Volari V8 ULTRA DUO. my vendor is selling it (it's second hand but doen't looks old from any angle) it has all of its bundle infact even the CLUB 3D sticker. he is selling it in Rs.2500 after a lot of negotiations.


Broken In
Forget any thoughts about buying the XGI V8, in today's graphics card industry there are only two companies you can trust for reliability and performance them being ATi and Nvidia. Though the dealer is ready to sell it to you for only 2.5k, I am sure you won't like the performance, technical support will be very hard to come-by, the card's drivers will be very immature and unreliable, plus since it is second hand you won't get a warranty.

Now coming back to the 6600GT, if you want a AGP solution with VIVO, you can get the Gainward 6600GT - *

The MSI GeForce 6600GT AGP also has VIVO support. The model number being NX6600GT-VTD128.

The rates for the 6600GT AGP from XFX have come down btw, the 6600GT AGP now costs about 12.3k, I am unaware as to whether it has VIVO support.
