    Sick of WoW, compare it to AION plz

    aion is challenging in that it takes an immense amount of grinding to hit max level. most of the WoW kiddies that are used to having quests to hold their hands until the level cap will probably quit. level 49-50 requires 150 million xp and you have to grind out 90% of it with mobs giving like...

    Sims 3 $18.99 Spore $13.99 Champions online $22.99 plus others

    ordered a champions online key from them, showed up as a Direct2Drive key and worked just fine. hopefully they don't go on a ban spree of accounts registered with these serials, but i don't see why they would. if so, big deal, i'm only out $22.99

    Intel x25-m gen 2 in stock at newegg

    at least a couple retailers have discontinued the G1 drives and i already have one, would there be issues with raid 0 if i were to pick up a G2 drive since they're not exactly identical?

    Read: 878MBs, Write: 781MBs, Sustained Write: 600MBs .... Drool..

    with capacity and performance like that, i'd be surprised if the 1tb goes for anything under $3k

    Intel x25-m gen 2 in stock at newegg

    i picked up a G1 drive from some random site with good reviews for $229, fuck newegg's gouging and lol @ the suckers that pay the inflated price just because its newegg.

    Intel x25-m gen 2 in stock at newegg

    i'm one of the unlucky WA residents that pays tax at amazon so that would come out close to $300 for me :( hopefully in a month the supply will be better, i won't pay more than 229 for one, that's already a high enough price.

    Aion Online download taking forever, insane anywhere quicker?

    it won't technically be installed until monday but it's ready to go when ncsoft unlocks it. i got my closed beta to open beta update in about a half hour from fileplanet at a solid 1.5MB/sec

    Intel x25-m gen 2 in stock at newegg

    which is exactly what i'll be doing, unfortunately the hordes of nerds willing to buy one at $280 will probably send the price even higher before supply evens out with demand. i don't think newegg even has any competition for the G2 right now, them and zipzoomfly (who are still out of stock) are...

    G2 80 G back at newegg.

    lmao up to $280. they can stick that where the sun don't shine, i'll wait a month or so for the price/demand to drop.

    Intel x25-m gen 2 in stock at newegg

    pretty sure the 20 off 200 promotion has been dead for 2 or 3 days. figures i'd be asleep when they came back in stock and they got nerd rushed :rolleyes:

    Wow losing ground?

    hell, a lot of WoW players probably easily top 100 hours in 2 weeks, not a year. i haven't played since early 08 and hearing about this new expansion makes me want to resubscribe even less. i read about how they'll have to backtrack on the lore since they ruined the progression, and things like...

    does anybodies func 1030 still work

    i've been using the same 1030 for at least 5 years now and i have no desire to replace it. this pad is the only component that i haven't replaced over the years, they're really built to last a long time.

    Left for Dead 2? Already?

    Quad-Core Builds - Which One?

    if the main thing you're concerned with is gaming performance, there seems to be very little difference between the q9550 and i7 920 from what i've read. i was planning on getting an i7 setup myself, but after researching what options i had with my current motherboard, i've decided on a q9550. i...

    these boards haven't received very good reviews so it might not be the great deal it looks to be.

    OCZ 6GB 2x3 DDR3 8-8-8-24 ram $145 shipped (ar)

    still way too high compared to ddr2 prices but at least they're coming down. hopefully a kit like this drops another $20-30 by february when i'm planning on upgrading.

    Amazon Gold Box: Warhammer Online AOR $25.98

    pretty sure that number was counted within the free month. there was a significant population drop off once the paid period started. i'd be surprised if there's 250k people left by now, many thousands more have canceled ahead of the next billing cycle coming up next week.

    37" westy LVM-37W3SE $569 +$5 shipping

    my last online tv purchase was a bad experience, it came cracked on the top and i had to go through a pain in the ass exchange process. from what people in the woot thread are saying, westinghouse's customer service is awful. not to mention when i go to walmart or best buy, the picture quality...

    37" westy LVM-37W3SE $569 +$5 shipping

    i've been thinking about this since last night. very good deal, but i've heard westinghouses are crap. i may just wait until black friday, these tvs will probably be $500 or less.

    Warm? Arctic Cooling Accelero S1 Rev 2 $27.79 shipped

    nice deal, what kind of temps are people getting with 4850s? i may spring for one since the stock cooler just doesn't do it for me at 65c idle.

    Westinghouse 37" 1080p LVM-37W3SE - $629.00 AR

    this site looks an awful lot like an ecost affiliate. ecost has a similar rating of like 2/10 in the past 6 months. i'd avoid this site as well.

    Polk R300 floorstanding speakers $79.98/pair @ fry's B&M

    they have these on their website for 49.99 each, but shipping was like $130 for 4 of them so i decided to pass. the closest store to me is 75 miles, otherwise i'd go check B&M prices.

    How's LOTRO?

    this is truth. i had a blast initially but i stopped around level 24 because it started to get really boring all of a sudden. the game may have changed, i haven't played it in like 9 months.

    Mutants in Far Cry or aliens in Crysis?
