    XPG SX8200 480GB M.2 SSD - PCIE NVMe - Rakuten $99.45 FS

    5 days to ship, though. ADATA really. Micron 3D TLC NAND. Silicon Motion’s SM2262 controller. Would like the option of a Crucial NVMe drive but it isn't here and would cost more.

    Black Ops III PC $17.99 Greenmangaming

    I know it's not the most current one but Infinity Ward and Infinite Warfare (which sounds too close) have some problems.

    iPhone SE

    I'm surprised there isn't discussion about an A9 phone, 2GB RAM and fast storage for a much lower price than a 6S. What do people think about their 5S but overclocked on processing and GPU? Or are 5S units breaking? iOS versions overwhelming their latest phone processor is far off.

    Long-term analysis of 680, 780, Titan, etc.

    These cards are still going, seasoned veterans. Or say they perished, and name the OEM. But they are at their plateau instead of ascending. Did you wait with an old card for Kepler, or the 780 Ti? Or was it from 580 to 680, etc.? Did anyone fold on the Titan? How much better was it than...

    Lack of inexpensive i3 + SSD prebuilts?

    An i3-3220 or 3225 and 128GB SSD would make a very fast system for most users and combined they are about $250 without bulk discounts. Have the 5400 RPM storage drive upgrade there for the inept, but don't force it. Why aren't there companies that make these and undercut the competition who...

    Owners of a i3-3220 / 3225 and i5-3570K for gaming?

    I've reviewed many benchmarks, and I know the GPU is the cornerstone for a better build and improved performance. But has anyone had the i3-3220 or i3-3225 in a gaming rig and put it through its paces, then upgraded to the i5-3570K? Or had them both for gaming? Are there more noticeable...

    ASRock FM2A85X Extreme6 FM2

    Has anyone used this board? With few exceptions it would be paired with the A10-5800K, at least for now. And that combo at Microcenter is about $180 now, online there are various combo discounts. Is that one of the best performance/price setups available? Definitely not for an HTPC.

    Gigabyte GA-78LMT-USB3

    Amazon page I see this has 4 slots for memory, but are they unusually close to CPU? And would that cause heatsink/RAM clearance issues compared to normal ATX boards? I know about low-profile RAM but don't have them at the moment. CM Vortex

    AM3 processor on AM2/AM2+ board, DDR2

    I know this is kind of the gimped setup, but I want to tinker. Did anyone test it out back in the day? I was surprised by the compatible processors for an old, reliable board and want to see for myself. Or does it cause stuttering and crashes?

    Stratosphere or other fort battles

    Is there a spiritual successor to Stratosphere, a 90s game where you build a floating fortress and use guns or ramming to destroy other forts? Or is that too specific, just a niche that was abandoned?

    Best Side-scrollers 2011

    There are so many, I don't know if we can make a poll. So please nominate, discuss. Trine 2 is my choice for the best this year. I still enjoy having three different "modes" and how they work together. Graphics look sharp, very fun. I'm not counting Bastion in this genre. Should it be...

    FPS with flight

    Is Duke Nukem 3D the only FPS (or third person) with a jet-pack or equivalent? Not flying vehicles, nice as they are. And not extreme jumps or low gravity, though those are fun. If we can have Raptors and other vehicles why not flight? Or did I miss a playable game?

    SNES Refreshes

    They need to refresh these games like they did Street Fighter. Okay, it's a figure of speech. I would be thrilled if they refreshed these games. King of Monsters 2 - A true thumb-breaker.

    Future planning question: Lower marginal cost over time?

    Much of this is pre-supposing that there will even be software I want to use where extra muscle will be nice or necessary. As much as I come back to Source and the UT3 engine, plus Blizzard catering to the 1280x1024 crowd, who knows. And if someone makes a big DX11 Crysis homage... the game...

    Installation question, 95% in

    File sizes for Steam Games (not bad, just wondering)
