    280 GTX vs 4870 for F1 2011?

    This is actually for my college pc, so I'm only running an Antec Basiq 430W.

    280 GTX vs 4870 for F1 2011?

    Thanks for the help! I'd be paying about $80 for the 280 or $70 for the 4870, but I just realized I'd also need a new psu to accommodate the load. Would it be better to by something like a 4850 until I can afford a 68x0?

    280 GTX vs 4870 for F1 2011?

    I'm currently running an old 8800GTS 320MB that just isn't cutting it with F1 2011. I've been thinking about upgrading, but I have a really limited budget so an older card is all that I can fit in. From what I've found, the 280 and the 4870 seem to still be somewhat competitive. Will either of...

    Bose Endows Company to MIT

    The only reason why you would implement active equalization is to correct inherent flaws in a speaker's frequency response. So what you're saying is first you need to overpay for a poorly designed speaker, then you need to pay even more for a system to correct the poorly designed speaker. If...

    How Come Bose Never Comes Up?

    Take a look at the full-size Audio Technica noise cancelling sets as well, they sound great and offer better value for money over the PXC350/450 (Though if you have the cash, the Senns are obviously the better performer). In terms of passive vs active, active noise cancellation actually works...

    How Come Bose Never Comes Up?

    Not the same form you want to pay $200 for tiny satellites and a mid-woofer? There's a reason why Bose doesn't publish frequency response (Aside from the fact that their audience wouldn't know what to make of it anyway). Regardless, if you're space constrained you wouldn't exactly...

    [H]OT - Hitachi Deskstar 2 TB 3.5-Inch CoolSpin RPM SATA III 6Gbps$69.99 (Dead Deal)

    Looking for a 2TB and the price is right but won't touch Hitachi, had a 1TB set itself on fire and brick. Hopefully a Samsung or WD will hit this price again soon.

    Mercedes Delivers Its First F-Cell Vehicle

    If you're going to dump on a car, at least do it properly. It looks nothing like a Prius. It's an A-class, which looks like a turd beaten with an ugly stick, but it's a car that has looked pretty much the same since 1997. The amount of information, or lack thereof, about hydrogen fuel...

    Has anyone ever ordered from before? They have some good deals on fans but I've never heard of them before. I usually just order from Jabtech but they're significantly cheaper.

    Free Invites for RevTT

    Doh, yeah I missed the part about what was the name the enabler gave it. :o

    Free Invites for RevTT

    I don't get it. Glamourous Glennis was the nickname, the aircraft's actual name was the X-1. And the first supersonic project was indeed the Miles M.52, the information gathered from that cancelled program led to the X-1.

    I don't think he's asking who broke the sound barrier first, but rather who was in charge of the program that first attempted to break the sound barrier.

    Free Invites for RevTT

    No clue. Hugh Dryden/Col Albert Boyd, Bell X-1? Edit: If it's the X1 project, NASA seems to say Maj. Robert Cardenas? This is a tough one!
