    Think I'm Gonna Buy a BenQ XL2720Z

    Because I'm gutless and need to vet all my big purchases on this forum I would like some input. I'm wanting a little bigger monitor and I really want to get into some 120+ Hz gaming and I think I've decided to get the BenQ XL2720Z. Its 27" but only 1080 and I know the resolution purists are...

    Talk me out of buying a 290x Lightning

    So Amazon has the MSI 290x Lightning for $350 shipped (Newegg does to but fuck them) with a $30 mail in rebate and I really want to buy it. I know the 970 is out and its all the rage but honestly all the coil whine hoopla has really turned me off to them. This Lightning has fascinated me since...

    Microcenter: AMD FX-8320 $99 in store only

    I know these Microcenter deals are annoying to the majority of the people that don't have one nearby but thought this was worth posting for those that do. MC has the 8320 for a C-note in store only of course. You have to add it to your cart to see the price...

    HP 27" LED - $250 shipped

    I played around on this thing at Frys last weekend and it was $400 and I thought it was gorgeous! Just looked it up today and it's now $250 shipped! Guess they're clearing them out. I'm a big fan of HP monitors and I'm REALLY fighting the urge to buy this...

    Dead Space 3 trailer up

    http://youtu.be/71MZlPqChX4 Man I cant wait for this. Not really a game play trailer so its hard to tell but it looks like it might be a little more RPG this time than shooter. Thatll be fine with me cause there is a lot of great story potential there. These are almost up there with Mass...

    I freaking love Mass Effect 3!!! *SPOILERS*

    Apologize for making yet another ME3 thread but I felt the need to testify. So I finally finished my play thru's of ME1 and ME2 Saturday morning and went out that afternoon and bought ME3 at my local Best Buy. Wanted the collectors edition but they didnt have one. Got home and promptly stayed...

    Shouldve listened to you guys - Razer keyboard gone

    So I post about being a happy new Razer fanboy after buying and loving a Deathadder a couple weeks ago, a Carcharias headset a few months ago then last week a Black Widow Ultimate. Immediately, there was a rampage of hate...or so I thought. After 2 days the strafing keys started sticking...

    Newest Razer Fanboy

    Ive always been a Logitech guy and always tried to buy their stuff but a couple months ago I wanted to get a headset so I could game and not disturb the wife watching Desperate Housewives or whatever stupid show she watches in the other room. Read a bunch of reviews and decided to branch out...

    Medal of Honor-5 hours-WTF?!

    So I pick up MOH off a Steam sale for like $15 cause I hear its got a decent single player game and I have no interest in multiplayer. So I'm playing it and thinking its pretty good. The story is run of the mill but the combat is very solid. Then I come upon this cut scene that seems kinda...

    24" 16:10 vs 27" 16:9 for gaming

    Almost got enough cash stashed away for a new monitor but having trouble deciding on which way to go. At first I was wanting a 27 but am kinda worried it'll be too big since I sit less than 3 feet away from my screen. At that distance I'm afraid it'll not only make me sea sick but that the...

    Razer Carcharias - my impressions

    Was getting on the wifes nerves playing Mass Effect while she's trying to watch American Idol so I invested in a gaming headset. Looked around thru some reviews and the Carcharias was always very highly rated so I bit on one on sale at Best Buy for $75. Not a smoking deal but fair I thought...

    IE9 causing gadgets to eat a ton of RAM?

    Ive been running the All CPU meter and GPU Observer for several months and my rig always sat around 1-1.3 GB memory being used. Last couple days, Ive notice up to 3.5 GB being used! I pull up the resource monitor and sidebar.exe is using it all. Earlier to day it alone was using 1.7 GB! I...

    Intel P965 chipset - CPU upgrade

    Hey guys, need ya to double check me. My dad has an old HP n7680m desktop running a Core 2 Duo E6400 on a P5BW-LA (Basswood) motherboard with P965 chipset. That wont accept the newer Core 2 Quad 9XXX series procs will it? He's only quad option would be the Q6XXX right? Maybe I just fail...

    Do I need a $200 motherboard?

    Been thinking lately about upgrading to a beefier motherboard, but not really sure I need to. I built this rig not expecting to get hooked on PC gaming again and definitely didnt expect to get hooked on overclocking and being a [H]ardware junkie! So I looked for a board that was reviewed...

    Help me spend my gift card

    Alrighty, so I got a $70 Best Buy gift card for my b-day and am trying to decide how to spend it. I thought about getting a GPU like the 5770 but theyre $200 at BB and thats just ridiculous even with a gift card, same with the processors. So the next thing on my upgrade wish list is a PSU...

    7750 Kuma OC - 2nd opinions

    Hey guys, Im still a little green on OC'ing so I wanted to run this by everybody and make sure it looks alright. I tried 3.3 but it wouldnt even run the Windows Experience thing-ama-jig so I went down to 3.1 and it hit the BSOD when running Prime95 after 10 minutes. I set ACC (SB710) to AUTO...
