    Oracle Employee Named in Singapore Sex-for-Favors Case

    I think you misunderstand. The sex was payment for the government worker "to help further the firm's business interest". It was wanted and willing.

    +1 for XFX RMA service

    Hey guys. I wanted to relate a good experience with XFX's RMA service since normally people only come post when they're pissed at a company. I have 4+ year-old GTX260 Black Edition that has made its way through 3 systems that recently went unstable on me and started hard crashing my system...

    HTPC/Gaming build critique please

    For a little bit. I will probably build an IB/GTX6xx rig later this summer, but I will be very busy the next few months with work. My entertainment requirements for the immediate future are: Play Skyrim, ME3, and Diablo3 on the tv at decently high quality Watch Blu-ray rips and streamed tv...

    HTPC/Gaming build critique please

    Hey now there's an idea. I briefly considered that, but the Antec 900 is not spouse-approved living room furniture, and I was concerned about the GTX260's ability to play modern games at acceptably high settings. But I guess I don't have to throw the rest of the computer out with the...

    HTPC/Gaming build critique please

    edit: I HAVE TO RUN OUT OF THE HOUSE REAL QUICK. I'l lbe back later to put down what my current idea for the build is so you can critique it. =p /edit Hi G[H]. I would like to build a HTPC that I can also play Skyrim/ME3 on. My goal is a quiet, cool pc that can still run modern games at...

    My Build Log (LOTS OF PICS)

    Thanks for the update! What is the verdict on H100 noise level? Mainly I'm concerned with the pump, as I've read that it can sometimes be heard over everything else.

    Another day, another SSD deal. This is a trend I can get behind. :cool:

    Not sure if [H]ot or Not (Frys SSD MIR deals)

    I'm hesitant to call this a [H]ot deal, mostly because I've read in a few places that Corsair's MIR contractor has been really flaky recently. But it seems like these are pretty good prices (specifically the 180GB Force)... What say you?

    Need re-build advice

    I will be using the Antec in a HTPC build that I intended for it originally. Also I never felt comfortable overclocking her Q6600 or video card (can't remember what model at the moment) without a little more power overhead. It probably would have been fine, but everyone has their personal...

    Need re-build advice

    Well no price drop is disappointing, but similarly priced IB processors would take the sting out. I guess we'll see. As for the rest, thanks for the spot-on advice as usual. The upgrade bug is starting to carry me away! =)

    Need re-build advice

    Hey guys, I've been waiting for Ivy Bridge to release to upgrade my E8400 box. Early reviews are uninspiring, though, so now I'm thinking about saving some money and getting a 2550k after the Ivy Bridge release. Preferably on a Fry's sale. I have been out of the game for awhile though, so...

    Budget build for the wiff

    Hey guys, I decided to go a different direction since a friend gave me a motherboard and a power supply (both brand new) for free. The motherboard is an Elitegroup G31T-M. I know it's cheap and kind of crappy and has integrated graphics, but the price is right. Plus this way I can come in way...
