    EVGA GeForce GT 640 vs GTS 450 ?

    IMO yes especially since the GTS 450 is already in your possession. ;)

    EVGA GeForce GT 640 vs GTS 450 ?

    GT 640 vs GTS 450 benchmarks Sorry, had to finish jacking off. As you can see the GT 640 runs cooler and consumes less power but is slower in every performance benchmark. But the 640 is new technology, so that means it also has the awesome power to run DX11 games extremely slowly as well.

    WD Caviar Black WD7501AALS 750GB seems slow...

    You have to go into the shortcut properties and run it in Windows XP compatibility mode. As long as Vista is telling HD Tach that it is XP, HD Tach will run just fine. :D

    What is your ping difference wired v wireless

    I use netgear 802.11n wireless bridges and typically I ping 4-7ms higher than my brother who is wired when we play on the same servers. So it's not as bad as some people may have you believe. I've never, under any hardware, 802.11b/g/n, pinged 50 ms higher over the past 5 years... FWIW

    Best Glide Games

    Starsiege Tribes needs to be on that list. They eventually got OpenGL support working after about 10 patches but God that game looked good in Glide on a voodoo3. And the gameplay is still fun and challenging today..

    Switching...and need some opinions/advice/knowledge.

    I listen to music and game long after everyone else in my house has gone to sleep, so I need to use headphones so as not to disturb them. I also use voice communication in games but plan on using the mac as my main hub for listening to music.

    Hi :) Well ever since the Intel Macs came out I've been keen on getting one, and I've been needing a laptop lately, so I decided to kill two birds with one stone and pull the trigger on a 1.83 C1D/512/60GB white Macbook. Don't worry, I've already got a 1gig stick of ram on order from Newegg and...

    Going to BB tonight... got ?'s

    I think the real benefits of Vista for an enthusiast (such as xb360 media center connectivity, the games for windows initiative and DX10) won't be readily apparent for a while, but in a year or two everyone will be running vista. Remember when XP came out people were very concerned with...

    Going to BB tonight... got ?'s

    If you get the OEM version the license states it can only be installed on one PC and MS considers a mobo swap to be equivalent to a new PC. People have reported being able to call MS and get OEM stuff reactivated on new hardware but that is at the very least a grey area and could be piracy and...
