    Halo Reach...PC or XBOX?

    Been lookin for a new FPS for my desktop. I've always liked Halo but not sure if it would be as good multiplayer for PC. I'd consider getting it for the XBOX but I still want a new PC FPS...suggestions? And does anybody have Halo Reach for the PC? If so how's online experiance?

    Direct X / win 7 or crossfire issue?

    Upgraded the drivers last night, same problems. Ran the 64bit dxdiag, same reporting. Downloaded the profiles, but what do those do? Do I just need to install them or do I have to change something?

    Return 460 Sli and go for 5870?

    I was running with a single 5870 for a while, it's ok but it depends on if you want to max your settings. It works fine but I didn't play any of the demanding FPS games (crysis, mafia ii, etc..). Otherwise it works fine. I got an extra 5870 and crossfired them just in case I want to go for...

    Completely Retarded Exhaust Mod Idea? Need Feedback

    How much money / time do you think this would cost you? I'd be interested in the results. I'm not a fan of WC, I think it's too much upkeep. I think as long as the duct isn't terribly long, and the fan at the end is big enough, you might get good results. But I also think the amount of hot...

    Corsair 800D

    No problem btw, but I definitely recommend using the step by step build on corsairs website. I used that with the mobo / power supply / h50 manuals to do the majority of the install. Things started to come back to me after 10 years lol. Altho the H50 was a huge change from just a fan back in...

    Corsair 800D

    Oh ok now I feel like a tard lol. And I got the AX850 - its the model that you plug all the cables in to the power supply yourself. I didn't see the cable in the case, I'll take another look later. Thx Redbeard. Here's another test...it's a lot cooler in here tonight so thats probably why...

    Corsair 800D

    I got the same case just a few days ago. The rest of my parts are comin in today. Went with 2x 5870s, the 1090t, and an H50. I don't have any extra fans but I'll post my results as soon as I get them in. My 2nd 5870 doesn't get in until Monday but I'll post what temps I'm getting when it does.
