    Seagate 1TB - $159 - Zipzoomfly

    Holy hell... $150 for 1Tb? Where have I been? Last I checked they were $400+. Wow, guess I'm out of the loop. How are these anyway? Quiet? Fast?

    Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi SB0670 (Xtreme Music) $33.69+ ~$8 S/H at

    Search torrent sites for modded X-FI CD. Or search Creative's forums. I had a copy of the CD but I sold my XFI a long time ago. I guarantee there's a way to get the drivers to work, and to run the software (Volume Panel, etc...) off the install CD, because I bought an OEM Xtrememusic and got it...

    Subway has all Footlongs $5. Gamer Food

    I get the $5 deal but add double meat. Still, $7 bucks for a fully stacked footlong, you can't beat it. :) I put half in the fridge so one lasts me two days at work.

    2008 Lian Li PC-V1000

    Dudes, I own a V1000B and have dealt with three other V series cases: one with a Striker, one with a P5WDH-Dlx, one with a Commando, and one with an A8N. These are quite heat-pipe intensive boards. I noticed no difference in chipset temperature when I turned the cases upside-down. Given that you...

    New build- Lian Li

    Nicely done! I'm a sucker for nicely wired Lian Lis. I would definitely classify that as "smokin' fast." Conroe, G80, P35, 4GB RAM... What's that guitar in the background of the first pic? Look like Grover kidney tuners so it may be a Les Paul copy but the inlays are dot so I'm thinkin' it's an...

    Questions about lapping

    Intel is still piss poor at making them flat. If you use a Dtek Fuzion then I do believe it works better with a convex IHS.

    DFI x38 vs P35

    What I like about that Gigabyte is that it has 8 USB ports on the back I/O panel. What I don't like about it is it looks like a kindergartener's coloring book. The DFIs look way sexier with their all black/green color scheme but I would never pay $200+ for a mainboard. I would stick with a DK...

    9800gx2 reveiw english

    Would this be worth it over a GTS640? My GTS runs all my games decently @ 1920x1080, except for Crysis. I only use 2xAA and 8xAF.

    Bigger Computer Monitors = More Productivity

    The big ones are 1080p which IMO is perfect for a monitor.

    xfx 680i lt sli fan noise

    No. 680i runs around 70c even with the fan on full blast. Look in BIOS it should be called MCP. Northbridge is SPP. Best option is to get rid of the 680i, and get an Intel board.

    LG IPS 1080p 42" LCD $996 BB

    Now THIS is entirely worthy as a monitor. Terrific as a TV too. I got it for $669. :) Could have gotten it for $369 though. 1920x1080 res, 10:000:1 contrast, plenty of inputs, excellent blacks for an LCD, no dead pixels, no hot pixels, no stuck pixels, no ghosting, no backlight blur, no banding...

    Westinghouse TX-47F430S 47 inch LCD HDTV (1080p, 4 x HDMI) $1199.77 Free Shipping

    Uh.. since you say you're not using this as a monitor... I don't think you'll notice dynamic contrast at all. When looking at still frames such as internet browser windows or folders you WILL still notice an adjustment in brightness every two seconds. Unless you have a wonder TV there, disabling...

    Westinghouse TX-47F430S 47 inch LCD HDTV (1080p, 4 x HDMI) $1199.77 Free Shipping

    If you're hooked up through VGA with a .4843mm dot pitch, I don't know what to tell you. Maybe you haven't noticed the other issues because your picture is too blurry to see that while scrolling over dark backgrounds, the screen gets brighter and vice versa. You can't shut this off. No firmware...

    Westinghouse TX-47F430S 47 inch LCD HDTV (1080p, 4 x HDMI) $1199.77 Free Shipping

    I got this for $599. :) BE WARNED: this is a piece of shit for use as a monitor. Read thread over at AVS, and pay close attention to my angry posts. Lots of buggy ass issues with HDMI ports, image scaling, contrast and brightness auto adjust, even updating firmware etc.

    Red-light Cameras Increase Crashes

    People suck at operating motor vehicles. No red light cameras, higher fines, or more strict law enforcement will remedy that. I have to get this out of me: if you're one of those fools who goes 90 on the freeway, fuck you. You're only knocking off a grand two minutes of your commute.

    The Official "Smash Brothers Brawl" Thread

    SSE was a waste of resources, IMO. I don't mind a little FMV but it was put to lame use. They should have made the menu interface of higher quality (what is with this big colorful preschool interface?) and ditched the whole SSE. Again, terrible allocation of funds. I don't care about plot in a...

    Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Ring of Fates any good?

    ALL Final Fantasies have been crap as of late. Squaresoft is dead, though Enix is still alive in there. Crystal Chronicles was never a true FF, so if you like the old school style FFs stay away from any CC game.

    The Official "Smash Brothers Brawl" Thread

    1. I'm a bit underwhelmed by the menu layout and interface aesthetics. SSBM was far superior in this department, and was such a step up from SSB. I was hoping Brawl would be the same, with some futuristic menu and title screen. Instead it's toddlers chalkboard layout. Thumbs down here. 2. Lag...

    The Official "Smash Brothers Brawl" Thread

    Kirby was my #1 in SSB. His air tilt-down-A, followed by a repeated ground tilt up+A attack could combo for 50+% damage in just a few seconds, and then send an opponent flying with a smash left/right+A attack. I felt his overall agility and attack latencies in Melee were detrimental to his...

    My add code: 1375-6899-5080 I'm adding everyone here. Off to GameFAQs, smashboards, etc to find some worthy opponents. Before you battle me, I warn you: I used to put up a good fight. :) I'm lovin' Meta Knight. Disappointed that Kirby still blows though... he totally pwned in SSB1.
