    Asus horror story after 14 years w no RMA's

    Ive bought mainly asus motherboards since 2000. I went with xfx and evga mother boards and the rma process for both companies is ridiculously easy and user friendly. Now fast forward to 2014... I had my first asus video card with directcu cooler on it and one of the fans went out. I rma'd the...

    What about EVGA Boards

    Evga, XFX, and corsair have amazing customer support and very easy RMA process... ASUS, I can tell you first hand, has horrible customer support and RMA support. For your own best interest, don't buy asus, if anything goes wrong and you need customer support (especially RMA) you will regret...

    Battlefield 3 Multiplayer Performance and IQ Review @ [H]

    BF3 reminds me of when Halo came out. Everyone who had a pc was like "what the hell is so special about another average FPS?" while on consoles people were losing their minds like it was ground breaking. The expectations are different for a pc vs. a console. and you hit the nail on the...

    Battlefield 3 Multiplayer Performance and IQ Review @ [H]

    Ok... what I'm about to say will not be popular but I feel it's an honest eval of BF3. It is a dumbed down version of BF2 with a graphics facelift. The eye candy in this game is simply breath taking. However, the game itself is a console game ported to pc regardless what EA has told us that...
