    Logitech Sale (G500s, G600, G700s and more) @ Amazon

    Anyone have experience with the G710? My current front runner is a Corsair K70, but this Logitech may be worth it for $30 less.

    Galaxy 2nd Week of Christmas Give-Aways!

    The thing I want to see most in a new video card is a smaller, more efficient size. Video cards are getting a bit ridiculous in size.

    New PC microphone for gaming

    That's what I was thinking would happen with the Zalman. I must say I am kind of disappointed that there are no decent stand-alone microphones in this day and age. Perhaps I will take a trip to Wal-Mart later and pick up another cheap headset. Before I do that, however, does anyone have...

    New PC microphone for gaming

    I am in the market for a new microphone to use for Vent/gaming. I have been using a cheap Logitech headset for the past few years and the mic has finally started to die. I would prefer to not replace it with another headset because I really only need a microphone. I have a set of Logitech Z5300s...

    Starcraft 2 runs great at beggining then huge battle = lag

    If you are only using 2gb of RAM, that is likely your problem. I have personally noticed that SC2 usually idles using about 95% of my 2gb of RAM, but my CPU will usually only be around 20-30% (taken from task manager). That is why I ordered 4gb to replace it.

    Best DDR3 ram?

    +1 for Corsair. It is the only brand I have used in my desktop. When I was too poor to afford the XMS series, I had the Value Select series and had zero issues with it.

    My Corsair 800D

    I can't really give much in the way of suggestions, but I do like how clean the inside of your case looks. That case has some great cable management.

    Logitech G500 Mouse Pad Recommendation

    I picked up a random $15 mouse pad from BestBuy a few years back that I have enjoyed quite a bit. The main surface is made of a hard plastic that has given me no problems, and it is very durable because the plastic surface is surrounded by metal. The only real drawback is that the silver paint...

    Playstation Plus

    Like others have pointed out, most, if not all subscription services tend to enroll you in auto renew. There should definitely be an option to turn it off though.

    Gears of War pc multiplayer question

    That is great to hear, but I honestly was not that surprised when I read that Microsoft required a gold subscription to play the Windows copy. I hope it never happens, but it would not be surprising if it did.

    The Official "Starcraft 2: Wings of Liberty" Thread

    2gb has been enough for EVERY game I have run. Technically, it is also enough for Starcraft 2 but I am tired of the long loads / beginning of game lag. I just wish Starcraft spread its use of hardware around a bit more. I have not seen it use more than 30% of my e6550.

    Technically, I also have not seen The Last Airbender as I walked out 15 minutes into it to get a refund :)

    Redbox Launches Blu-ray Rentals

    Nah. It can't really be that bad. Plus, my perceptions are generally influenced by the amount of money I have to pay to watch the movie. If I am only paying a dollar to watch it, I'm sure I will enjoy it enough to get my money's worth. It can't be any worse than The Last Airbender

    That's good to hear. At least banning will actually be somewhat effective then.

    How will account banning play out in SC2? Will it basically equate to $60 down the drain?

    Ohh just great, Battlefield 3 is going to be multi-platform AKA console port?

    I had to read this twice because the first time through I missed the "don't" in the part about modding. Luckily I caught it the second time or I would have called you crazy :p My main concerns with BF3 is they will follow the same route as BC2 and not allow private dedicated servers or...

    The Official "Starcraft 2: Wings of Liberty" Thread

    I realize that, PrincessFrosty, but problems arise when the game tends to idle using 90% of my RAM. For instance, if I get into a large battle online, I will not have enough RAM to play smoothly anymore. I know this because I played a custom game of Golem Wars (ahhh nostalgia), and there were...

    so i got starcraft 2

    I mainly play the campaigns for the same reason as you. The one thing I found disappointing, however, is there are a lot of units in single player that are absent from multiplayer. Firebats, medics, goliaths, etc. My friends have told me 'balancing issues' are to blame, but meh. I just want...

    Redbox Launches Blu-ray Rentals

    My local Redboxes have also had Blu-ray for a few weeks now. I was surprised when I first saw it and was really tempted to rent Alice in Wonderland. And now that I remind myself of it, I still want to rent Alice in Wonderland.

    Dell Tech Support Swiping Nudie Pics

    The Official "Starcraft 2: Wings of Liberty" Thread

    Ya this game eats my RAM like crazy. I am playing on medium settings and it generally uses 90%+ of my 2gb. I had to order some new RAM. I do not see how Blizzard recommends 2gb when 2gb barely gets the job done.

    I tried Zerg for the first time in MP last night, and I was completely lost on what units to get/build order to go. I suppose it would have helped if I looked at something before diving right in :cool:

    Blizzard Downloader

    The way I see it, you now have a couple options: 1) Take a laptop to any business that has free wifi (Starbucks, McDonald's, Tropical Smoothie, etc) and download from there. If you are in a college town like I am, you can also try driving to the office of any apartment complexes that cater to...

    Bad company 2

    I have been running the game on a C2D e6550 @ 2.33ghz with 2gb of RAM and an 8800GTS since it came out. Except for one night where I was getting insane graphics lag, the game has been as smooth as can be on medium settings for me. Are you sure your power supply is adequate?

    Price and dedicated server issue aside....MW2 vs. BFBC2

    When is the last time you played? They updated the browser in a few different patches. It now has a lot more filter options and refreshes almost instantly. You can also be put in queue if you attempt to join a full server (which is great if you are trying to join your friends).

    I am not sure which campus you are on or if the guy you spoke with knows for sure, but I know several people that had trouble with P2P things on the University of Florida campus. It could very well be that your campus blocks it. If that is the case, do what CrimsonKnight13 said and see if that...

    lol man I am the same way. I have not really had a chance to sit down and play for a few hours at a time since I got it, either. What time I have had to play usually is spent replaying the same missions until I 'finish' them :p

    Upgrade e6550 to?

    Grabbed both Prime95 and Intel Burn Test. I bumped my e6550 up to 2.45 Ghz and it appears to be stable, but I plan on testing it with Intel Burn Test when I leave for work. Managed to find a good deal on a 4gb set of RAM as well, so looks like all that is left is to find a good deal on a full...
