    Why all the Drobo hate?

    So over time here I always see some threads about people hating Drobo devices. Now I was never around for the FS device, but I have heard it was slow. Now I know all about Synology, Qnap, Netgear, Whs, Zfs, etc. But Drobos have always intrigued me. Over the years I had still been rocking my...

    GTX 260 to ATI 6 series?

    So I think it's about time for an upgrade for me. Is the 6850 going to be a great upgrade for me? Should I spend the extra and move up to a 6870?

    Going from Nvidia 260 to 5850/5870?

    Would you upgrade from a Nvidia 260 to either a 5850 or a 5870? Is it worth it? I have been playing Battlefield Bad Company 2 lately and I can turn everything up on it. But I know my card doesn't support direct x 11 and the new 5850/5870 does. Am I missing anything? Would you upgrade?
