    Alternatives to the Phanteks Enthoo Pro / Corsair 600Q

    I need to replace my my current case and would love an updated version of it but Antec has not really done anything like it so I am going to have to look elsewhere as my AX1200 will not fit in there (Antec mirrored stainless steel, looks great but not so well designed) I have a few must have...

    anyone know or use a DIYPC Skyline-07-R ??

    I doubt its the best case in the world given its price but it seems to be a pretty high value option. For what its worth the newegg reviews are not bad. I have out grown my stainless steel antec (my AX1200 will not fit) and need a replacement. for 80bucks shipped this seems pretty hard to beat...

    WHY did AMD decide to kill the FX branding with bulldozer?

    6900 rumors from charlie. mix of good and bad?

    from here http://www.semiaccurate.com/2010/12/03/ati-cuts-6950-allocation/ well I think that we can write TSMC off as a cause if this is true. we can also hope that the we will have plenty of the 6970. the value cards maybe not so much.
