    Did my monitor just break? (LG Ultrawide)

    LG Ultra Wides have a display port as well. At least the 3 different models that I have do.

    Doom Eternal

    The jumping puzzle crap is super annoying. Other than that, neat game, well made, runs amazingly well and feels really tight.

    LG 25UM5x - black sheep of the UWs

    I bought myself the 34" for at home and loved it. I then put in a request with our buyer at work for 2 of the 25" versions. I felt that two of the 34" side by side would have been way to wide. To be honest, after using those two 21:9 25" monitors at work for a couple of years, I would...

    Most aesthetically appealing Video Cards of All Time?

    I have that 9700pro version of that Tyan Tachyon. I bought it based off a review here in Hard|OCP. I still have it in my collection.

    The Anti-Cheat System Is Broken in Battlefield V

    What? You can't spectate a player and tell that they are cheating when they are snapping to enemy targets through walls and trying to shoot them before they clear said wall?

    Best Buy Axing CD Music

    My biggest beef is the loudness war. Not everyone listens to music with crappy Apple earbuds, some people actually have a hifi system and would like their music not phucked up from the get-go. Looking at you Green Day and Metalica. One band that is bucking this trend is A7X starting with...

    Best Buy Axing CD Music

    I haven't had any issues with poor quality Autorips. I noticed that somewhere along the line, Amazon changed encoders from Lame to some other encoder. They work fine for putting on my car's stereo and I get instant gratification and don't need to wait the 2 days for the disc to show up before...

    Best Buy Axing CD Music

    I love my CD collection. I prefer Amazon since they have their Autorip service, where when you buy the CD, you get the MP3 version of the album instantly for free.

    Monoprice Mech Keyboards: Backlit - $23.99/Non-backlit - $19.99 FS

    So, I got my two keyboards in a couple of days ago and have been enjoying typing on them. Definitely worth the buy. I got the blue (non-backlight) ones so it has the nice click. They are not ISO keyboards, they are ANSI keyboards, but with the weird enter key. ISO keyboards have a couple of...

    The Top 5 Worst Motherboards of All Time

    I have one of those boards. It had both a native 8x AGP and a PCIe 16x port. It's one of my favorites, started running it on Win XP with a AMD X2 4200+ and a AGP 8x ATI X800 AIW. Later upgraded to a Geforce 8800GTS PCIe card. What screwed it up is when nVidia bought ULi and killed...
