    Where to buy P67 board right now

    My current computer is on its way out and I can't play any games on it anymore due to overheating, and I would also like to find a P8P67 Pro/ASRock Extreme 4 at ATX size so I don't have to wait several months before being able to play anything again. Like some of the others here, I have no use...

    vesa mount?

    Purchased mounts for your monitors would likely cost more than the monitors are worth. Personally, I would suggest buying (or making) a vesa bracket and attach it to a pipe if you don't need to adjust the monitors and have a little extra time on your hands.

    Warcraft III: Aeon of Strife & Tower Defense, anyone play? Any tips?

    DotA tip: get a key to the HoN beta It's the same game along with the same (sadly terrible) community, just without leavers.

    Brand new EYEFINITy triple 27" monitor arm

    You're correct. Ergonomically, your eyes should be about level with the top of the screen.

    PS3: 120gb VS 250gb, any point?

    I use PS3 Media Center, and it auto-transcodes every video I've thrown at it on the fly. I haven't seen how it handles 1080p yet though, but I'm sure that if you had a strong system you would be fine.

    What OS to install in my netbook?

    I have Win7 Pro on my AAO netbook (1.5gb ram) with aero enabled and it is about the same "speed" as XP was but with the usual W7 improvements in functionality. The largest limiting factor in snappiness of the machine is mostly due to the slow hard drive.

    Dragon Age Origins discussion...

    If you build your party right, most trash mob groups are cake on normal. The only people you really need to micromanage are your casters. AoE disables are worth their weight in gold. Mass paralysis followed by a well placed cone of cold on the mob inevitably surrounding your tank (sorry tank)...

    Compare Torchlight and Borderlands

    Borderlands has a slower item upgrade frequency (tons of trash, little worthwhile) and the AI has more opportunity to screw up compared to torchlight, but otherwise they're very similar past the isometric vs fps differences. Also since BL is longer you end up fighting the same enemies for a...

    MW2, No Dedicated Servers, PB, 9v9 limit, leaning, etc etc

    Being a professional reviewer would simply make the problem worse with the review as expectations would be higher. (Well, not so much in the end because game reviewers are a joke for the most part anyway.) Pong runs great on my computer. *I* think it looks good too so 10/10! What you did...

    MW2, No Dedicated Servers, PB, 9v9 limit, leaning, etc etc

    The "review" lost all credibility when you starting rating weapons/perks/KD streaks. At least you're not bothering to hide your lack of objectivity. Also, 10/10 graphics? Hahaha

    Modern warfare 2+ eyefinity = fail

    In short, you're out of luck, MW2 is locked with a 65 degree FoV. Eyefinity will ALWAYS look absolutely ridiculously wrong with a 65 degree FoV. Did you miss the whole IW debacle or what? This shouldn't come as a surprise.

    File Syncronization Services?

    If you don't need to have the files accessible from anywhere, you can use Live Sync which has no file size limitations. Of course as you're not uploading nor downloading from the cloud, the transfer speeds will likely be limited by the sending computer's upload speed. On a LAN however, the...

    PS3: 120gb VS 250gb, any point?

    If you're storing a lot of movies you might as well just use a computer and stream them to the PS3. You can get 1TB HDDs for ~$70 if you wait for a deal. An extra 130gb simply isn't worth $50.

    How will Win7 Run on my laptop?

    Yep, I have W7 Pro on my Aspire One that I upgraded to 1.5gb of ram, and it runs no slower than XP did.

    Am I the only one that doesn't like the new UI?

    Banking on a solution in the unspecified future in software when dealing with annoyances now, is always a terrible idea, and ESPECIALLY when software is involved.

    So, who's thinking about Borderlands?

    I think it's pretty funny that autoaim is turned on for PC players by default.

    Am I the only one that doesn't like the new UI?

    Keyboard shortcuts first require being setup, then are generally only known by you if you created them, and lastly do not offer the same variety of options that a good UI would. The point is that you shouldn't have to set up shortcuts in the first place, you shouldn't be limited to shortcuts if...

    I already addressed why keyboard shortcuts aren't a fully legitimate form of UI customization. As for the second bit, unless I'm missing something: From the help file:

    Am I the only one that doesn't like the new UI?

    You're kind of proving my point for me. A power user shouldn't need to FIND anything, they just need to get to where it is in as few clicks as possible. Do I really want to set up shortcuts for everything I do in Office? Unless I was performing a single repetitive task over in a cubicle all...

    Am I the only one that doesn't like the new UI?

    I honestly still don't understand why people could possibly like the ribbon UI. It essentially boils down to simply making buttons bigger and then being forced to spread them out over different tabs because there isn't enough room anymore, resulting in extra clicks to perform basic functions...

    27" IPS 2560 x 1440 for new iMac, standalone display coming?

    I would assume so since 1280x800 is obnoxiously blocky on my 3007wfp-hc. An effectively doubled pixel size is just too large.

    I don't know for sure how long a 5870 is, but if it is only 0.25" longer than the 9800gtx from my quick googling then yes there will be no problem fitting 5870s in the case.

    360: HD On PC Monitor?

    You need to set your desired resolution in the console settings. You might also need to flip the switch on the rear dongle to "hd" if it's still used with the VGA cable.

    Newegg WD 640GB Caviar Black + CM RC-690-KKN1 case, $99

    Don't resist, the case is awesome. I upgraded from a CM Centurion 5 and it's a world of difference. Just remember to move the obnoxious LED fan from the front to a less visible location.

    Newegg WD 640GB Caviar Black + CM RC-690-KKN1 case, $99

    I have a pair of 9800gtx cards in my CM690 and they fit just fine. If I'm not mistaken, the 5870 is only 1/4" longer. There's quite a bit of room left. EDIT: HERE is a picture of how mine fit. Please excuse the cable management.

    For those on the fence...LIVE stream of Borderlands

    I honestly don't know what to think of the game. I love the idea of it, from the skill progression to the randomized weapons. Unfortunately in the videos I've seen it seems that in 4 player the monsters have tons of health and you just sit there pinging at them for a long time before they die...

    Brutal Legend

    Personally, I thought the game was pitifully easy. You don't even need to know the strengths/weaknesses of a particular unit as the tier 1 ones work great all the way until the last fight of the game. If you're talking about the first battle with the drowning doom, all you have to do is...

    Who else is tired of not getting into betas?

    Betas pretty much aren't used for getting user feedback anymore as far as I can tell. At this point, they're pretty much there to build hype around a game, act as some sort of pre-order incentive, or simply stress-test a game. The only time a dev would make changes to the beta due to direct...

    Next content pack and free weekend for Killing Floor

    KF is fun, but just like L4D it's a one-trick pony. Zombies come straight at you in standard waves and you essentially have to find the "best" spot to camp in a given level and slaughter zombies until you get to the boss. I got bored of it after 20 or so hours, but that's a pretty strong...

    Brutal Legend

    I would say that it's only like God of War at the beginning, but quickly changes into a vehicle/rts game instead.
