    Teacher: "If I gave you 2 cats and another 2 cats and another 2, how many would you have?"Johnny: "Seven."Teacher: "No, listen carefully... If I gave you two cats, and another two cats and another two, how many would you have?"Johnny: "Seven."Teacher: "Let me put it to you differently. If I gave you two apples, and another two apples and another two, how many would you have?"Johnny: "Six."Teacher: "Good. Now if I gave you two cats, and another two cats and another two, how many would you have?"Johnny: "Seven!"Teacher: "Johnny, where in the heck do you get seven from?!"Johnny: "Because I've already got a f*****g cat!"

    I have loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night."

    WOTS the difference between a HIPPO and a ZIPPO.
    One is a heavy animal and the other is a little lighter.

    Me and my better half were on a camping trip. We went to bed and were lying awake looking up at the sky.
    She said "Jim, look up. What do you see?"
    "I see thousands of stars,"
    Then She asked, "And what does that mean to you?"
    "Well," I SAID "I suppose it means we will have another nice day tomorrow.
    What does it mean to you?
    "To me it means someone has NICKED OUR F****NG TENT!

    My pc is using a GTX 580 Would a GTX 1060 give me a better performance for the outlay?

    Depends on the CPU. I have a 1070 and it's great but I do wonder if the 5790k CPU is holding it back

    Asus P8Z68-V Motherboard is about 5 years old. the processor is an i7 - 2600K CPU @ 3.4GHz
    Yoyotec suggested that the 1070 would not probably work. My Son said he will buy me a new motherboard and processor with a 1070 and 8 or 16 G of fast ram (2400). My birthday treat. I think that I will not see much improvement for the change. I wonder if the new board option will run a 4k monitor so games look better?

    A 1060 would struggle at 4K but manage rock solid 60fps at 1080p or, possibly, 2K. My 1070 with a Skylake i7 can do 4k in some titles but with some frame drop in the more taxing titles.

    I think an i5 Skylake and a 1070 if you want 4K, otherwise a 1060 will run 1440p at 60fps without breaking sweat! I7's are great if you do a lot with video but for gaming there's no advantage over an I5. I do think 16GB is worth going for nowadays.

    My sexy Chinese neighbour told me she was desperate for a roger.
    It was only when I had my trousers round my ankles, that I realised she wanted to rent her spare room out!
