    How often do you upgrade?

    Hey guys, how's it going? I'm thinking of upgrading my 680 GTX to the 980 upon its release. I bought the 680 two years ago and it still performs well, but with Far Cry 4 on the horizon, along with my anticipation of DOOM 4, I'm thinking it might be worth buying a new GPU. When I went to NCIX...

    Help with build - 2600$ Maingear or AVA

    He has my old GX2, the thing never worked right in SLi. And unless nVidia has fixed them up, It's a terrible idea. He pointed me to this thread to answer you. Hope I don't offend anyone in the process. Clarification from 0mega on the last line of his post: "It was a joke, I should have put...

    Cheap Quads for Canadians

    NCIX is good, but recently TigerDirect has been giving them a run for their money. I recently purchased an 8800 GTS (640MB) from TD and it was a full $50 cheaper than at NCIX. That was before taxes, and it was NOT on sale. Plus I got a rebate. Look at the graphic cards on NCIX, then go to TD...

    Need advice on a new 20" display

    Well the panel debating aside, I appreciate the advice...I'll most likely end up getting the 2007 WFP UltraSharp. Gotta wait and see though, if Dell keeps up the sales throughout August, I might get lucky and buy a 2407-HC instead.

    Need advice on a new 20" display

    Well the NEC is definitely out of my league right now, and the Acer doesn't seem to available in Canada online... I'm looking at this Samsung; it seems rather nice. http://www.directcanada.com/products/?sku=14040MN5351

    Need advice on a new 20" display

    I'm in the market for a new 20" LCD right now, primarily for gaming. I'm looking at the Dell UltraSharp 2007WFP b/c I know Dell has a good rep amongst gamers for the quality of their monitors, but I'm wondering if there are other alternatives. I know Viewsonic and Samsung tend to be pretty...

    Quad core means no physics card needed

    I thought the second GPU-looking thing (w/e it's called) on the 8800 GTX was designed for physics processing?

    PC Gamer takes a crap on Penny Arcade

    I started reading PCG back in August of 2002, and I agree, the magazine has taken a major turn since Vede became EIC, but I wouldn't say the magazine has become garbage. Personally I still like their previews and reviews. Ever since I was exposed to [H] though I don't bother with their...

    I have $40...

    Ok ya, you've got me there. But at the very basic level, it's still the same sort of game: squad-based online shooter.

    I have $40...

    I own BF2 Deluxe Edition. I play it every so often, but I enjoyed QW more.

    I have $40...

    Not really. Team-based online shooter, similar to the BF games. I only say BF2 killer b/c I enjoyed it more so than BF2.

    Console ports of PC games crap end of the stick?

    I'll second that. I remember when Halo first came out...SUCH a resource hog OMG. I'm like, ok, this game has been out for 3+ years now, why the hell is it running so poorly?

    Enemy Territory Quake Wars Beta

    I have the beta, and I've only played one game. It was meh...I guess either the server was laggy, or my graphic settings are too high, which is unlikely considering I'm running at 1280x1024 on an 8800GTS 640 MB. I'll give it another spin sometime this week.

    Blu-ray to Offer 5 Free Movies

    Blu-Ray has more support than HD DVD, that much is certain. But for the next 5 months at least, sales figures will keep bouncing back and forth b/w both camps. It wasn't too long ago that HD DVD was outselling Blu-Ray; I think it was about a month ago or so. Blu-Ray will fight back for a...

    Quad core means no physics card needed

    The point is well taken. I said that b/c I get into constant arguments about having a QC CPU in my next rig with a friend of mine, and that's the argument he gives me: Intel's Kentsfield is not true QC b/c it's split die.

    Quad core means no physics card needed

    As I understand it, the quad core we have today isn't true QC, in the sense that the dies are split, thus creating latency lag between the two cores. How efficient could that be for processing physics in-game?

    xbox 360 Elite shortage?

    Ya, but look at how scarce they are...when did the 360 Elite become the new Wii? Or w/e you want to call it Surely increased demand would mean MS would put more out to the retailers. As far as I know, the 360 isn't in nearly as much demand as the Wii.

    xbox 360 Elite shortage?

    I'm having the same problem here in Toronto...they're all over eBay, but I'm not interested in paying for some stupid custom fee, much less shipping. The majority of the sellers are in the U.S. Best Buy doesn't have any, nor does Future Shop, The Source, Amazon.ca...UGH! Where they limited run?
