    Golden Shellback Electronics Waterproofing

    It's not that they aren't offering any warranties -- the disclaimer pretty much says they are not responsible for accuracy of their own test. Which I find it to be kinda ironic. Anyway I just thought it was worded somewhat differently than a standard disclaimer that at least says their own...

    Why Blizzard is a threat to ATI/Nvidia's high-end segment and high-end PC gaming

    lol @ "high-end PC gaming" :rolleyes: At the end of the day, all game is, to the 98.5% of the ppl that plays them, is a way to waste time - hopefully in an enjoyable manner. Does it matter if you spend 2hrs playing minesweeper on your 386sx, or you spend 2hrs being all "l33t" fragging away...

    Blizzard still has one more game up sleeve

    Whatever it is, it's gotta be a pretty long-term project, as there's plenty of life left in WoW, and Bliz certainly don't want to take interest away from the games that they have announced. But I'm pretty sure it's going to be World of Lost Vikingcraft

    Blizzard updates WC3:FT Patch 1.22

    I dunno I always had trouble with knights -- mostly with NE. Probably cuz if you let human live that long to get knights, it's usually GG for NE anyway... lol And Pally against UD... it's pretty rediculous... Which is why the nerf to tower is gonna hurt human -- I've lost many games...

    Blizzard updates WC3:FT Patch 1.22

    heheh Orc doesn't need any updates -- blizz is altering all other classes AROUND the orc! I'm primarily an NE/UD player, dryad nerf kinda sucks. The nerf to scout tower is gonna hurt, but I don't know why they are beefing up knights to give them more dmg... cheers, yass

    am i obsessing too much about plasma over lcd?

    I've had a samsung 42" 720p plasma since around this time in 2004(one of their first "long-life" plasma panels. I use it daily (anywhere from 4-8hrs). Most of the times for TV/video and very occasionally computer/game use. Countless sport programmes were viewed on this panel with many friends...

I'm looking to spend about $250 max on a graphics card as I think that's arnd the sweet spot in terms of price/performance. I also prefer a single card solution for heat/noise/power...

    New [H] exclusive PC - from Velocity!

    I hope that most readers here knows the difference between a company like VM, who *assembles* the components for you, vs. TigerDirect or Newegg, who more or less just sell the parts. I would not be so presumptuous to assume that everyone who visits the [H] will only consider buying parts...

    Icahn's Questions Attack Yahoo

    While I think them Yahooligans need to get their collective heads out of the ground, you have to remember that Carl Icahn isn't exactly the type who goes around "rescuing" companies... He made his fortune as a corp raider suckling on Mike Milken's junk (err, I mean, 'lol high-yield' ) bond...

    New [H] exclusive PC - from Velocity!

    I think the system prices are reasonable, considering you get a built system and a warranty... I wouldn't get the HD or the graphics options thou -- those prices seems a bit high... A lot of ppl don't want to assemble a system from SCRATCH, but are perfectly happy with plugging in an extra...

    Anyone disappointed with Xbox 360?

    The type of games that I really like on PC are RTS-ish kinda games (warcraft/starcraft AOE)... nothing like that exists on the console I guess -- probably cuz of the controller issue. However I'm truly hoping that xbox360 will have keyboard/mouse accesories... There was this vicious rumor...

    Anyone disappointed with Xbox 360?

    I'm excited for it. I'm pretty sure I'll pick up one when it launches... It'll look awesome on my 42" HD-Plasma. :D If you don't like the game, don't buy it, simple as that. Will I mod it? Probably not, that sorta defeats my purpose of wanting a plug-n-play minimum hassle game machine...

    Blizzcon and WoW Expansion posts

    According to a german source, they are also reworking the talent lines so they can accomodate the extra 10 levels, and not just you got 10 more talent points to put in the current telent trees. They'd have to, if not we'd have a few million Mortal Strike + Death Wish warriors running...

    Carmack's Final Verdict: XBOX 360 > PS3

    finally an intelligent post! Yep MSFT's core business is their OS and there productivity suites. But it's pretty well known that they really want to break into some other segments -- hence the foreay into consumer electronics/gaming in the first place. I bet they are willing to continue to...

    Carmack's Final Verdict: XBOX 360 > PS3

    Actually I was referring to the idiots who would argue till the end of time on the merits and defects of systems that they haven't even seen, much less played on. On the other hand, the financials of MS, Sony, and Nintendo are widely known. :rolleyes: MS can throw money at a problem for...

    Carmack's Final Verdict: XBOX 360 > PS3

    I love how every thread that even remotely relates to the game consoles will inevitably degenerates into an e-peen size comparison between individuals from the various console camps. Of course the true irony is that probably nobody has even seen, much less played on any of the aforementioned...

    Next-gen console assessment.

    I was considering the revolution, then I read that it will be no-HD, and that to me, automatically disqualified the console for me for further consideration. The ppl who says that 480p looks good enough, obviously has never seen a properly calibrated HD-TV showing 1080i or 720p HD content...

    Hi guys, I'm trying to find a full-sized keyboard whose keys' *feel* resembles that of a notebook -- specifically the Apple Powerbook -- easily the best feeling, most comfortable keyboard I've ever typed on... Does anyone know if those kinds of "notebookish" keyboard exist for a desktop? My...

    G4 powerbook owners: is your case electrocuting you?

    ymmm... Powerbooks sure are tasty! Of course it's normal, with all that "power" surging through that supercomputer-in-a-chip G4, some tingling is a necessary feature, NOT a bug! :p oh yea, definition of electrocution: n. 1) to kill with electricity. 2) to execute with electricity...

    It's offical, apple moving to x86 Intel chips by June 6th 2006

    You make it sound as if AMD has been in this position forever -- remember that AMD was a virtual goner when their Athlon came out as a last-ditch effort. Intel has *vastly* more financial clout and marketing muscle than AMD, not to mention market share. While they erred on thrusting forward...

    It's offical, apple moving to x86 Intel chips by June 6th 2006 "The PowerPC G5 out-shoots the Pentium 4 in a battery of tests. But it’s in the rough-and-tumble of real-world performance that the G5 really shines — shredding the PC’s reputation in the process." :p hahahahahahahahahahahaha cheers, yass

    It's offical, apple moving to x86 Intel chips by June 6th 2006

    Apple probably likes Intel chips for their DRM crap, and I think more importantly, Intel's got PM. Notice how long it has been since a MAJOR upgrade in the Powerbook line? Would it be a big surprise if Apple were to introduce a dual-core Yonah(sic) Powerbook next year?? <drool> At any...

    Xbox 360 looks like...

    a slim-line Dell Optiflex? :D we got hundreds of those at work... damn ugly imo. Pearl-white? To make sure it won't match up with the mostly silver/grey/black home entertainment systems? I don't care how good the innards are, the designers should be fired... lol

    WoW multi-monitor help!

    gaming laptop

    Dell Inspirion 9300. Hmm, if anybody else makes a similiarly powerful laptop at the price that I paid for mine(a shade over $2000), and with a better looking package, I'm all over that. As of right now, no, nothing is better -- yes you can get the xps2 for $500-$800 more, but that case is...

    Dell Inspiron 9300 XGA+ vs. UXGA response time for gaming

    That would be interesting to see... WUXGA is 1920x1200. Check your Inspirion 9300 again. As to the original post about response time, the LG panel in the 9300 that I have is rated at 25ms. Look it up on LG's website, model # LP171WU1. 1920x1200 (WUXGA), 25ms. cheers, yass
