    Recommend a Motherboard and Case for a DIY Nas

    If you wanna save a bit of change and need 6 drives/ITX form factor still, I think the Fractal Node 304 is the de-facto choice. It does have a few fans (2x smaller in the front, 1x140mm in the rear), but has room to install 6 drives along with full size ATX PSUs (if you have one laying around)...

    [Tepid] EVGA B-Stock X79 Dark - $130 + shipping

    Thanks for the tipoff.. They have the Z77 Stinger mITX board for $65 shipped. Z77 ITX boards can be hard to find, especially with any warranty, so I'll give it a shot (reviews look kinda shady though.. hopefully they fixed some of the problems with the BIOS etc with these refurb boards).

    Show Your LCD(s) setups!!!

    Kudos to you for using a laptop as your keyboard! Also, Microsoft WMO! I still use one as well and have used it for over 10 years now.. bulletproof mice. Real gamers use old school optical low DPI mice! :D

    is this legit?

    Probably not, but you could always pay with Paypal and you are covered.. Probably a waste of time though.

    Titanfall - Respawn Entertainment's first game

    I agree with this.. I've gotten first place a few times, but did terribly in the mech and with Pilot kills, but I chewed through AI like a meat grinder and still pulled out first place. After playing for a few hours, I can also reiterate that the AI is far too stupid. 6v6 is also a somewhat...

    5% off video card at newegg

    I'm debating on the XFX 290 as well, but I'd want to remove the cooler and put an aftermarket one on (selling BF4 will help towards the cost) The XFX warranty doesn't specifically say that removing/installing aftermarket stuff voids the warranty I don't think, though it does mention that you...

    Got my arc midi last shell shocker with the $20/$40 google promo code.. GREAT case so far!

    CM Spawn mouse $20 AR - Xornet mose $17 AR

    Ironic.. I've actually switched to optical vs. laser due to the lift off distance on laser mice being TERRIBLE. The last I owned (G9x) was particularly bad, although I think the original G9 was also pretty awful. If you look at mice like the Zowies, they advertise some of the lowest lift off...

    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is $4.99 on amazon. *sigh*

    I'm certain there's still hackers and you'll likely run into them on a daily/weekly basis, but if that's the case I usually just find another lobby. I also recommend AlterIW (google it) if you want to play on dedicated servers with somewhat "better" cheat detection (better being the debatable...

    Fractal Design Define R3 Black $50

    Yup.. I got it with the $85 free shipping shell shocker + $20/$40 google offer code, so only cost me $65 shipped.. Not a single regret (although I'm trying to figure out why one of my fans is vibrating on the side of the case, and it isn't the fan's fault because it doesn't vibrate when not...

    Love my Arc Midi, would recommend this if it was still alive.. no surprise it sold out even with no free shipping..

    Looking into a ps3, longtime pc gamer

    I feel the pain of the OP in this case.. Dealing with issues to play a game just plain sucks, and I think I realize it more and more the older I get. Wasting the time dicking around with drivers, crashes or other problematic things really puts a downer on gaming. Not to mention when you work on...

    Super duper powerful laser heat HOT. Free frames + lenses from Coastal Contacts

    That's exactly what we did.. we got our prescriptions from the optometrist, but decided against frames from them for the obvious price hike. Took the paper with the prescription on it, measured our pupillary (sp?) distance and put it all in on the site.. Was incredibly painless. It...

    Super duper powerful laser heat HOT. Free frames + lenses from Coastal Contacts

    Also watch out for lens measurements.. My first pair had a width of 120mm and it's a little bit tight, so I ordered another free pair with a 125mm width but it ended up being even smaller than my 120mm pair. Good thing they also have free shipping back with an RMA.. was easy stuff..

    Super duper powerful laser heat HOT. Free frames + lenses from Coastal Contacts

    Yea not incredibly hot.. They've had free coupon codes before, and they usually also send you a coupon code with your free pair of glasses for *another* free pair! I find their selection to be lacking pretty majorly also.. Any decent designer brands have odd or "reject" designs that are pretty...

    Warm: Refurb PS3 160GB - $190

    Only had one bad experience from a refurb product, so I don't really trust this.. I'd rather buy one lightly used off the buy/sell/trade forums. Maybe if it came with a 1 year warranty or something I'd pick one up..

    Galaxy GTX 560 Ti SOC White Edition $239.99 amir @ Newegg!

    Galaxy's rendition of the 560 Ti Hawk/Zotac AMP model.. I like the white PCB, but why couldn't the cooler be white?! Decent deal at best for the performance unfortunately.. Maybe if it came with BF3 and Arkham City or something it would sweeten it up a bit more..

    Rosewill - Pellucid HD Series High Speed HDMI

    Not bad for rosewills.. usually the 99 cent ones don't include shipping so it goes upwards of $3-4 anyways, although once in a while you can get a $.99 free shipping deal..

    powercolor 6870 open box 75.99 + fs

    There are ways to get it.. I picked up an MSI 560 Ti Twin Frozr II for $138 just the other day open box (just barely had enough time to checkout before it went OOS) A lot of the times there's people running scripts that auto-check every few seconds and I'd say they likely even have...

    GTX 560 TI 448 MSI TWIN FROZR III $259 mir

    Great deal.. you could've stacked a $20/$40 google offer code too to bring it down another $20.. I was debating but my current CPU will throttle it bigtime.. The heatsink/fan on this thing really sold me being the TFIII model

    GTX 560 TI 448 MSI TWIN FROZR III $259 mir

    It was only valid yesterday.. already expired, but it was a great deal. It has the Twin Frozr III heatsink too so definitely overclockable (likely past GTX 570 speeds)

    GameFly gives free PC games to subscribers?

    Wow cool idea.. I could see it working like a temporary Steam service, but I agree with most Steam sales I'd rather have the $$ per month and buy 1-2 games on sale per month and keep them permanently, especially with better selection. Decent idea though..

    Logi G9(x) vs. Old Optical Mouse frustrations!

    Thanks for the comments guys.. I've been looking into some other mice and reading around [H] and other forums and there's quite a bit of info out there. Guess I should've done my research before jumping on the G9! I'll definitely check out the Spawn/Xornet from CM, Zowie mice and maybe even a...

    Logi G9(x) vs. Old Optical Mouse frustrations!

    OK, so I've wanted a gaming mouse for a while and I am a major fingertip grip/claw grip player. I'm fairly old school when it comes to PC gaming, dating back to Wolfenstein 3d, Doom, and I learned to KB/Mouse on Quake 1. I played that game for years and years, and most of the time I used low DPI...

    Logitech G9x $55 Shipped

    I've got a G9 and I personally am not a huge fan.. I like the claw grip shape and the texture/feel of the precision grip, but it's Laser vs. Optical and I'm just too used to my old 400 dpi optical mouse I think. The lift off distance is at least twice as much, and I just can't find a...

    50GB Free cloud storage for LG Android/iPhone users

    Strange.. their website indicates 25MB for the 5GB account, so it's almost like you got the 50GB storage upgrade but have to live with the upload limit of the 5GB account?

    ATI Radeon HD 5850 1GB DDR5 - $119 w/free ship

    Not necessarily a bad investment.. I just upgraded to a 5850 from a single 8800GT and can say I've noticed a huge improvement in a lot of newer games at least.. If I were you, I'd probably try and sell the 8800GTS though as partial payment for this, but that's just me..

    ATI Radeon HD 5850 1GB DDR5 - $119 w/free ship

    Good deal still.. keeps up for the most part with the GTX 560 and on par with the 6870 in most games, especially if/when overclocked at all.. I've got a non-reference Gigabyte model that still plays everything I throw at it.

    Fractal Arc Midi $85

    It will definitely fit a 2 x 120 rad in the top (read the specs earlier), but I don't know if care would be taken to fit a 120x25mm rear fan up there as well.. I'd imagine great care would've been taken by Fractal to ensure it would fit though, or at least I've heard nothing but good things...
