    I had amazing experience with amazon, got a DOA 60" TV, returned it without any hassles. amazon also has 3% cashback with their CC.. ends up being only $270 shipped going to give time for pros here and review sites to evaluate it before going forward. Newegg will have it within a week.

    World of Tanks MMO

    If anyone is interested in joining a clan, sign up here... Social competitive atmosphere, mature members, established in 2007 with other game and ts3 servers, not a mega clan as smaller groups are just better..

    Should I start with Civ V?

    Not overally impressed with civ V, Civ IV was epic in complexity and longetivity of games. Both good games in who their ment to target. Think of it as chest vs checkers games, it is what it is.
