Man about the network card thing, it turned out to be my parents fault, they turned off the ethernet cable thing when we where gone so thats why the internet didnt work, i was not happy when i found out

I would avoid changing CPU voltage until you have a better understanding of overclocking and the consequences of the higher voltages and heat. Do a simple clock multilayer change and keep a eye on temps. You can damage the hardware. Look at OC'ing your GPU with software like ATI's Afterburner. For good game play the GPU is probably the most important factor.

Hi there
Well my take in this is WHO pays the bill --!!!!

If you needed it on you should have organised it BEFORE you went away -- it's a good idea in any case if the property is empty to switch off the Internet.

If my place is empty then only the freezer / fridge are left on -- and heating comes on if temperature drops to avoid having freezing water pipes. Saves energy and is much better anyway.

If away for longish periods then even fridge / freezer are emptied and turned off.

We don't even need intruder alarms etc where we are -- advantage of being out of large metropolitan multi national cities.

Just a gripe from someone getting older now who just gets a bit sick of youngsters expecting to be provided with EVERYTHING even as they age into their 30's. !!!

When I first started work (a long time ago) I used to hand my wages (they were paid weekly in cash back then) to my parents unopened and they would pay me "Pocket money" back --taught me the value of money.

Cheers
