    Best CPU's of all time?

    Any list that doesn't have the Celeron 300a isn't a complete list. Any list that has the P4 way up high is a horrible list. Intel reducing the amount of work the cpu's did per cycle just to crank up the ghz in order to have greater appeal to Joe DumbassPCBuyer was just garbage. That move...

    Guitar Hero III: PC and MAC

    Geesh... the phone jack is for the headsets ... you know, when communicating over xbox live? I mean, how could that even be an ethernet port?.... Astonishing.

    To Wii or not to Wii?

    I can give big N the credit for the Wii controller, but the hardware is just too basic. I've got a $2,000 tv whose potential is wasted on a rehashed gamecube. I don't know for a fact that it's a gamecube underneath, all I'm saying is that the graphics look the same. Nintendo must be making a...

    Is Crysis a far cry from what it should be??

    Crysis was just evolutionary over revolutionary. It was Far Cry with better graphics, but didn't add anything new. I hated the mutants in FarCry, and I hated the aliens in Crysis. They're just a super-tough enemy to fight against because the developer can't program an AI opponent with your same...

    Crysis too easy?

    As much as I agree that the cloak and abundant trees make the game easier, I can guarantee you that if I was in a real-life situation where I had my own nano-suit, was stuck on a tropical island, was surrounded by guys that wanted to kill me, etc... you can bet a million dollars that my scaredy...

    What games have you pulled all-nighters playing?

    Thunder Walker CTF for the original Quake back in the day. Team based play with fancy powerups = fun. Then nothing happened until the speed cheat came out for CS. It was addicting being able to run around and stab people 50 times a second, and then like three days later it was patched, but...

    The best fighter pilot game out to date?

    If you were like me, back in the day you picked up Falcon 4.0 with a huge paper manual in a metal binder. You see, back then, games came with actual instruction booklets, not the lame ass html docs on the cd that you get today.

    ATARI - banning and locking our rights after lying to us TDU

    You already bought the game. Atari has your money. Learn your lesson and wait for reviews before purchasing a game. Let me guess - you preordered it and are now bitching that a game you paid for before ever even getting a chance to try is playing like shit. Go figure.

    Xbox with Dell 2005FPW

    32 bit or 64 bit Vista?

    My two main issues: 1) Vista 64 REQUIRES drivers to he WHQL certified. It won't even let you install non-certified drivers at all... it doesn't have the XP "warning" box about uncertified drivers; it just ignores them. 2) Vista 64 gives each app it's own 32 bit memory space, which is good...

    Fuad reckons Vista will need 4 gigs of RAM to play games

    FSX SLi

    The game looks only marginally better than FS9 - and in no way does the graphics quality justify the shitty performance. Back to FS9 if you ask me. MS didn't really have to spend much time optimizing the code or improving the game because there aren't really any other options out there for...

    Semi o/t - any recommendations for a good TV stand?

    I need to replace my faux-wood 1980's TV stand that I currently use. My TV is a standard 32" CRT that weighs about 150 lbs. I'm looking for one with a semi-modern style, stainless steel / black metal + glass shelves would be nice. I found a decent one at IKEA but the TV itself is only 2 feet off...

    Why does using DVI make my PC freeze @ boot?

    I just bought a new Acer 1917 lcd. If I connect it via the vga port to my 6800 everthing is fine. If I use the DVI connection however, my system will show the video card BIOS POST, the mobo BIOS POST, and then hang when the Windows XP "logo" should appear when the OS is booting. If I load...

    Xp64 won't load. Driver issue??

    When that happened to me it was because I had loaded the wrong version of my SATA driver... unfortunately you're basically going to have to do a reinstall to fix it if that's the case.

    [Prototype] Feeding Frenzy

    Two things: Very hard to see the frog on the pad since it uses the same color pallette. If I hold down the spacebar, this happens: catch a fly suck him in - spit him out - suck him in - etc. Overall, an interesting start.

    Stealing in Oblivion

    Here's how to avoid that... and it's so simple. 1. Steal items. 2. Have stolen items in inventory. 3. Open inventory. 4. Drop items on the ground. 5. Pick items back up. Items are no longer considered "stolen" and can be sold anywhere without a problem.
