    Steve Jobs To Grace US Postage Stamp In 2015

    :p I also noticed that two of the alarm clocks in my house share a similar design yet are different brands. Those red LCD numbers looks awfully similar too...

    i think i finally came into contact with a cryptobit virus

    Compelling argument. I'm going to start my own backyard breeding operation, purely for the valuable (but not yet widely accepted) dog fart currency. The best part is that I can sell the puppies to dog lovers when I'm tired of bottling their farts. It's a brilliant (yet sick) win-win.

    I like the box fans in the back. Simple but effective. ;)

    another recommend me a keyboard thread

    The G105 is pretty nice. I have the "COD MW3 version" which I bought a while back on Amazon. I believe it was a sale around Black Friday and I paid somewhere around $30 to $40 for it. Again, it's a pretty nice keyboard for the price. Personally, I bought it for the green backlit keys (which...

    Code Keyboard -- new favorite keyboard

    Thanks for posting. I never heard of this keyboard until now. I checked out the website and it appears to be a very well built mechanical keyboard. If only Logitech built their keyboards this well.

    Powercolor Radeon 7870 Myst RMA Woes

    That's terrible customer support. The only thing that makes sense is if the fan was damaged during shipping but based on what you said I'm assuming you packaged it properly before shipping it out. It sounds like they'll do almost anything to get out of replacing items under warranty. If...

    Titanfall - Don't Fall For The Hype

    I completely agree. I really miss those days as well. I remember when they first started charging for DLC and I thought it was a crazy idea. I couldn't imagine anyone actually paying for DLC and I never thought it would catch on. Boy was I wrong. :(

    What smartphone do you use and why?

    The Galaxy S3 is a great phone, I had one before getting the S4. I feel the same way about my current Galaxy S4, I mostly likely won't replace it until it breaks or only if something really nice comes out. Both the S3 and S4 are excellent all around phones and the S4 suits my needs perfectly.

    i think i finally came into contact with a cryptobit virus

    I'd venture to guess that this is an unpopular view on most internet forums but I'd have to wholeheartedly agree. I never did see much use for them outside of the criminal element (which, incidentally, is what these "ransomware" virus' appear to use).

    Logitech G430 7.1 Surround Sound Gaming Headset - $40 + FS

    When I bought my G930 at Best Buy recently I noticed the G430s there and took a quick look at all the display models for comparison. I'm also concerned about cheap quality headsets. In my quick comparison, the G430 seemed to be built the same as the G35 (or G930), just with less features.

    Steve Jobs To Grace US Postage Stamp In 2015

    That and claim the stamp has "spectacular new innovations" that were actually around long before their marketing people made it into a main selling feature. I can actually picture an Apple commercial for their "innovative" stamp glue.:p

    Gygabyte is selling more than Asus.

    Does anyone else also prefer Gigabyte due to their lower pricing and (in my opinion) very comparable quality?

    Logitech G430 7.1 Surround Sound Gaming Headset - $40 + FS

    For $40 though I wouldn't consider it a bad deal, especially with "7.1 surround sound". Just for the record, I have a pair of both G35 (wired) and G930 (wireless) headphones. Decent quality products and the virtual surround sound works pretty darn well (in my case) for gaming. Most games also...

    Huge Polk audio speakers on new egg

    I know it's been said multiple times, but Polk makes very good "bang for your buck" speakers if you're not an audiophile. I use a set of their wall-mounted speakers for my rears in my 5.1 setup and am very happy with them.

    What is the minimum reasonable packing protection for shipping a HDD?

    I've RMA'd a few WD drives this way. Seems reasonable to me if the manufacturer also ships a product this way. WD was actually pretty strict about how you could RMA the drives: no padding, no packing peanuts, nothing static, etc. Just the two plastic end caps. Personally, I would have...

    If you own a gaming pc and a ps4 is there any point in owning a xbox one?

    With already owning a gaming PC and PS4 I don't think there's any need for an XB1 as well. For me, the cost of the console wouldn't justify the few games I'd play on it.

    Thinking about dropping back to a single-GPU system...

    Thank you for the reply. I'm in almost the exact same boat as the OP and was wondering the same thing myself. A single card would undoubtedly simplify things in my case but I'm wary of making a change when the issues are, after all, occasional.

    Harmony One, Harmony Touch, Harmony 1100 for htpc

    Same story here. Have used a few in the past and somewhat recently purchased two refurbished Harmony One remotes from Ebay. Just make sure to get the SquareTrade warranty - I've had a few issues with the buttons on Logitech remotes sticking or not working in the past. In my case, the warranty...

    Gygabyte is selling more than Asus.

    I prefer Gigabyte as well. In my opinion their products are very comparable to Asus' (and at a better price point). I won't go into the whole story, but last summer it took Asus nearly a month (literally) to RMA a RT-N66U router after it was in their hands. The router is great but it left a...

    Indeed. Ambient temps have a lot to do with your overall CPU temperatures. ... And yes, low idle power consumption is awesome. ;)

    How many of you leave the your case sides off? (Open Air?)

    I agree with nalc. Way too much noise and dust for me to leave the case open. Having pets certainly doesn't help with the amount of fur that normally accumulates without the side panel removed!

    Steam 2013 Winter sale is here! runs from December 19th to January 2nd.

    I bought the Bioshock Infinite season pass for under $5 yesterday. You've got to love some of those deals! Also, Steam was down for me last night as well, I couldn't even log in to play.

    Razer Taipan Ambidextrous Gaming Mouse - 59.99 Amazon FS

    Very nice deal on a good ambidextrous gaming mouse! I've used one of these as well and paid the $80 price tag at Best Buy as you mentioned. The mouse has a good feel, and once again it's great for ambidextrous people (or lefties)! :p
