    Cheapest family plan, unlimited data

    we just signed up with Sprint. got 2 evos and 3 other phones for the kids. 1500 plan with unlimited data and mobile to mobile is $189, minus our 23% discount from work, it turned out to be a good deal over t-mobile.

    Just ordered T-Mobile g1

    Seems the concensus is fairly positive on this phone, so I ordered one on a new contract. Now I see HardOcp has a mobile phone category(I just noticed it). Any G1 owners here? Whats your experience like?

    Netbook and cellular card

    I don't know enuff about netbooks, and a freind is asking if there is a netbook that can use her Verizon cellular pc card. I looked at some but they don't seem to have the slot needed. Does anyone use this combination?

    Does Far Cry 2 ever get interesting?

    It's off my hard drive and I could'nt be happier. I replaced it with COD 5, not a great game, but at least one that is interesting enuff to play for a while.

    Does Far Cry 2 ever get interesting?

    I took it off my hard drive. The first hour was fun, then I realized that the rest of the time I had been playing really sucked. Lucky for me a freind let me borrow it while he was out of town. If I had paid money for this, I'd be hugely pissed. Absolutely nothing like the original FarCry.

    Blinking on and off

    I've had an Msi 260gtx card for about 2 weeks, and have been very happy with it. Just today I see my Monitor, a Westinghouse 24 inch l2410nm, blinking off and on at variable intervals. Gpuz says my temp is 46 idle, and it's doing it even as I type this. Any ideas?

    ASUS Lion Square @ [H]

    I agree. Unless you have specific installation requirements, I don't see any reason to not get the price/performance leader, currentl $26.99 AR with free shipping.

    Vigor Gaming TEC CPU cooler

    Had one when I built a dual core e6600. Cooled it effectively, but fell flat when I hooked up on my quad core. Overall, I did'nt see much difference between that and High end air cooling.

    how to 3850 crossfire?

    This may sound stupid, but I've seen pics with one bridge and with 2 bridges. There is space for 2 on my cards. Do I use both? Does it matter which dvi port I use? Thanks

    8800gt sli or 1 more 8800gts

    I currently have a EVGA 640-P2-N821-AR GeForce 8800GTS running in my *old* Intel bx2. Planning on upgrading to (maybe) 780 Nvidia. Does it make sense to buy 2 8880gt's, or buy one more gts for sli?

    Zipzoomfly BF sales!

    I still can't figure out why anyone would order stuff from ZZF. My bad experience with them is echoed by many others in And, it appears they've gotten worse since I ordered parts about a year ago.

    Reliable Nvidia Sli board? (for Crysis)

    I sure would like to get 2 8800 gt's in SLI for Crysis, but I don't want to go thru the hassles everyone seems to have with their 650/680 boards. Even the (seemingly) best one, the A1 revision, is not available on Newegg. Is there any one board that is better than the others? The one that has...

    GA-G33M-DS2R not working

    well, I used a different power supply, tried different memory configs, used on board video...nothing worked. I placed all the components minus the motherboard into an Intel BX2 I had, and everything worked perfectly. Got an RMA from Gigabyte....we'll see how it works out.
