CanadaRox's PC Profile

It all started out play Tony Hawks Underground 2 on PS2. I wanted to get a video capture device so I could make videos of me and my friends playing. I looked into USB adapters, but they were all really laggy. So I got a computer built with a ATI All-In-Wonder X800XL, which turned out to be crap. While looking into fixes for it, I discovered overclocking which I have done ever since.
