    JVC HARX or Monoprice 8323

    I was working with a budget pretty similar to yours a couple months back. After asking around r/headphones a bit, I ended up going with the Superlux HD 681. They look a bit hokey but sound pretty incredible for ~$30. If you've never used open-ear headphones, they leak quite a bit of sound in...

    Voltage and Power Control in MSI Afterbuner

    Have you tried playing actual games with the Afterburner OSD showing your voltages/clocks? I have the exact same card and a lot of the time it likes to revert to stock for some reason. No artifacts or freezes at all, it just runs at stock until I go back into Afterburner and set the OC again...

    The Elder Scrolls Online

    Wow has the author of that article ever even played a TES game? Every other lore name is misspelled or butchered.

    T-Mo Upgrade in ~4mo

    4 months puts you at August and historically, new Nexus phones are launched in November/December. If you're a crackflasher, ~3 month wait for a Nexus is a no-brainer.

    The Official Guild Wars 2 thread

    Not quite a "forum" but there's a GW2 subreddit that's ballooning in size since the media blitz a week ago. Plus the AMA the dev did shows they at least pop in occasionally.

    Dead Isalnd

    If you're willing to buy "grey-market", there's plenty of sites willing to sell you Dead Island keys for about $19.99.

    Star Trek Online Free-to-Play is on STEAM now

    I'm about 5 hours in and so far at least, the game pretty much holds your hand. So honestly, I wouldn't worry too much about it. Just have a general idea what kind of role you want to play (tank, DPS, etc.) and follow the prompts. :) Optionally, plenty of stickies with misc info in the official...

    Star Trek Online Free-to-Play is on STEAM now

    This thread convinced me to try it out. Spent 2 hours making my PC, hit "Play!" and then I get "Character Creation Failed". :( Turns out there's a 15 minute idle autokick and it ignores character creation. Then in my rush to do it all again in under 5 minutes, I forgot to set her uniform. :o...

    Pc racing game

    Not much in the way of modding, but if you like circuit racing then NFS: SHIFT and NFS: SHIFT 2 Unleashed are pretty fun. I had a blast with both SHIFT games on the HTPC with a 360 gamepad. Makes me wish for a steering wheel/pedal setup though. :(

    Skyrim Modding Megathread

    Be an Altmer? Tallest/fastest race I believe. Edit: Yes. But if you just want to be taller, "player.setscale" is the command you're looking for.

    6-7 hours now standard SP gameplay?

    NFS is only 2-3 hours?! And the way I see it, Skyrim makes up for everything else. :D

    You think you take competitive gaming seriously?

    I thought EG has been doing this for a while now? Anyway it's too bad Idra isn't what he used to be.

    World of Tanks MMO

    Sounds like what happened in CBT. I remember getting burnt out really fast after 200+ matches. And that was with the free premium every day, I can't even imagine how bad it is without.
