    500 Million ASUS Motherboards. The Celebration Starts at [H]. - Lucky Draw

    Here's my story! One of my first fully-built PCs consisted of an M2N, original. nForce chipset. Well, I had to take apart my PC for some ungodly reason, and when I put it back together, my floppy drive connector seemed like it was oriented the right way! Well, it wasn't! Switched that...

    Congress OK’s Upgrade of VA's 29-Year-Old Software

    Filing for a claim =/= filing for healthcare benefits. You filed for a compensation & pension claim, related to your military service -- which the VA hospitals facilitate through independent physicians evaluate medical necessity, run appropriate tests, etc. to help determine the percentage of...

    Watch Dogs was intentionally hobbled on PC

    The Witcher franchise has had a pretty good track record for not producing fluff when putting together trailers. Like I said, that combined with the previous owner discount was a pretty good motivator for me to get it pre-ordered because I want to support CD Projekt RED. I almost look at it as...

    Watch Dogs was intentionally hobbled on PC

    That's what really scares me about titles that are still in development. The games being shown at E3 that are being released in fall or teased into 2015 have me concerned about how they are going to look when finally released. ProjektRED has really been the only ones to seem to do the...

    Watch Dogs was intentionally hobbled on PC

    Ah, thanks. The pleasures of working in a call center and getting distracted. Yes, I have had little-to-no faith in Ubi for pretty much anything anymore. As a Crossfire owner, I have felt that rope burn both ways from them and AMD. And for good measure, I fired up AC3 yesterday, decided to...

    Watch Dogs was intentionally hobbled on PC

    There are always modifications to lighting or commands that can be issued to the engine that affect image quality and performance. I'm at work now, but I assume this details editing the engine file to introduce new or different cvars. I'll bring up an example that no one has talked about...

    Seasonic Topre Type Heaven Keyboard and S12G PSU Lucky Draw

    I'd like some more Seasonic products in my rig... ...because I'd like to hear the sound of the ocean when I put my ear up to my PC. That's Seasonic, right?

    SeaSonic M12II Power Supply Lucky Draw

    Definitely their fanless series PSUs. The only one I would consider for an HTPC. Always well-made, efficient, quality, and I've even considered these M/S12's as great PSUs.

    Well, hopefully, it will be a hoplite :) Haven't used much of enermax products... but this could be a good start!

    Galaxy 6 Weeks of Christmas GPU Giveaway! Week 2

    Same thing as last time -- almost always custom/good cooling solutions, and good support.

    Galaxy 6 Weeks of Christmas GPU Giveaway!

    Their cooling solutions are well-developed and always one of the major manufacturers I would consider between them and ASUS for NVIDIA-branded cards.

    AMD Radeon HD 7870 CrossFire Never Settle Bundle Lucky Draw

    Idle power and high overclock-ability! Also, the bundle that they are including really is terrific and a good value.

    AMD Radeon HD 7770 CrossFire Bundle Lucky Draw

    What I like about AMD's latest cards is the effort they've put in for idle power consumption, and the addition of actual tesselation renderers, as the 6000 series was seriously lacking in that department! Much more FPS with tesselation enabled.

    Patriot & HardOCP Lucky Draw Giveaway

    I've always liked the speed and the reliability. I remember quite a while back seeing Patriot as the only SDHC flash provider that actually had Class 6 or higher speeds with a 32GB capacity. The others were simply cheap, unreliable garbage and reading the reviews at Newegg pretty much backed...

    [H]ardOCP & ASUS GeForce GTX 660Ti DirectCU II Giveaway

    I think the DirectCU II itself will benefit me the most! My case is getting kindof hot around my video card area, and I may have to invest in a better motherboard too :/ Makes for some short hours for gaming -- so if I get the mobo and vid card then that'd solve both the problems!!

    Antec Case & PSU Combo Lucky Draw!!!!!

    Pretty much just awesome quality. I do remember when I had a 350w smartpower hooked up quite a few years ago, and I hooked it up the wrong way. That was the first and last time I've ever seen blue sparks inside of a PC. I thought I was doomed when I saw that happened. Shut everything...

    A Real Test of nVidia vs AMD 2D Image Quality

    Clearly all this is converging to is an evidentiary-based, fact-supported opinion vs. just plain opinion. People can believe all that they want. Whether they use facts, evidence, or just their own perception it will, undoubtedly, never stray from others who want to find solidarity in forming...

    Sunday sucked

    Enough, enough. If you didn't care what someone believes you wouldn't spend the time replying to this thread. Even if for the sake of writing it makes you feel good, you still need to devote some time to reading posts regardless if you agree with them or not. But I'm willing to bet you do...

    Corsair "Barebones" Christmas Giveaway!

    The thing I enjoy most from Corsair, is that I've never once had to worry about my PSU failing in my HTPC, which gets a lot of use. Any thing I've ever had from them has always had awesome build quality. It's easy to trust a company that makes a solid product.

    Four Weeks of Galaxy Give-Aways!

    I'd like a new Galaxy card because I want to get rid of CrossfireX. I'd rather have one awesome card with no bugs and better driver support. It can all be blamed on Skyrim!

    Catalyst 11.11b Performance Driver Released

    My bad, sorry... I don't monitor the forums much. To note, I'm using an i5 2500k OC to 4.2GHz and 2x HD6950's. And yes, the performance was negative... very negative. Which is why in CAP2 they disabled xfire. I was having very negative performance scaling, so it was nice to have them disable...

    Catalyst 11.11b Performance Driver Released

    I agree with the above. Personally, I installed these specifically for my Skyrim CrossfireX woes. Namely, not having them at all. Yes, the game was playing well with the 11.11a driver and CAP 2, but I did notice a bit of flickering in the distance. The only "mods" that I'm using are to...

    Corsair Giveaway - Force Series™ GT 180GB Solid-State Hard Drive

    Quite simply, I need a Corsair SSD because I would like my Battlefield 3 maps to load in under 20 seconds, instead of waiting about 5 minutes due to my crappy 5400RPM drive. Plenty of time to grab a glass of water, I guess. But I'd rather just load a map and start fraggin'.

    Enermax Platimax 850W Drawing!!!!!!!!!!

    I would use the Enermax Platimax 850w PSU for my next build because it's a great quality PSU that can give me an excuse to slap in another GTX460 and use some SLI, as well as keeping such a nice efficiency rating and allowing me to save some pocket change running my PC 24/7!!!

    XFX Black Edition PSU Drawing!

    Well, the design is pretty cool looking even if it is sortof black/green standard for XFX. I do like the modular aspect -- cable routing greatly helps airflow and keeping those important components cool. Also, it's always good to see a manufacturer strive for 80-plus certification and...

    XFX Radeon HD 6990 Drawing!

    Well, firstly, XFX is awesome for standing by its product with a double-lifetime warranty. That has always been something very impressive to me. Secondly, the 6990 is an impressive product on its own right. Being a dual-GPU card, it carries a lot of the beef all on its own. It truly is the...

    MSI N560GTX Ti Twin Frozr II OC Give-away!

    Definitely in for this. These 560's are really nice, and the new cooling that MSI is putting on their cards with the frozr's are really a step up from previous generations. They're trying to put their stamp on quality, and it's really starting to show now. Good luck, MSI! And me. :)

    Corsair Vengeance RAM Giveaway! 5 12GB Kits!

    Galaxy 7th Week of Christmas Give-Aways!

    Having 2 video cards is just like having 2 wives -- more fun, more money, and constantly updating "drivers" to get the best "performance" in all "games." Yesh, that's a lot of innuendo. !!!
