    Epic gaming glitches

    http://1drv.ms/1yzug5a World of Warcraft bug: I had some sort of transformation/costume on and it let me mount a 2 seat flying mount(I forget which transformation/mount I used, it's been a while). So I let my friend on my mount and it made it look like I was carrying him through the air...

    Tomb Raider reboot will make PC gamers "very, very happy"

    I'm getting all sorts of slow down, even on normal settings. I think it's probably a vram limitation; I kind of wish I held out for the 4 gb GTX 670's, especially with my triple HP ZR2740w monitor setup.

    Windows 8 Leaked Already

    queue the "oh noes, Metro is scary". I probably spend 30 seconds in it a session, during which I actually find it quite nice on my nvidia surround setup. Certainly better than squinting at the start menu in the lower left.

    Will U buy Windows 8?

    With tripple monitors in nvidia surround, I'm actually like the start screen. So yes for my desktop. My laptop has barely seen any use, so no for my laptop. I'm planning on buying a surface so yes on that.

    Windows 8 Release Preview Download

    So much crying over metro. I actually like it, rather than having to stare at a tiny start menu in the bottom right of my tripple screen setup, I can actually sit back and see what I am doing. Not that my eyes are particularly bad (20:25 uncorrected), but this is a god send. Not to mention...

    27" Monitor with 2560 x 1440 native resolution

    the biggest con to the zr2740w is the lack of a scaler. You might think that this is ok, but when it comes to modify things in your uefi/bios you'll wish you had one. Other than that, I'm enjoying the reasonable price, good image quality, and low input lag.

    The most extreme mini-ITX gaming rig you've ever seen - MAX11Lv3

    like! One of the things my irl console gaming friends always complain about in pc gaming is the sheer size of the average gaming pc; I should show them this :)

    HP ZR2740w - 27" IPS - 2560x1440

    I bought one from amazon. The display itself is wonderful, but the near complete lack of a scaler is disconcerting. I can't even see the bios.

    Corsair Giveaway - Force Series™ GT 180GB Solid-State Hard Drive

    I already have not one, but TWO Corsair SSD's in my current rig. As awesome as they are, this drive would blow them away. By using the latest generation of Sand Force controllers and synchronous ram these are faster than my drives in RAID 0 and much less hassle.

    Diablo 3: Purchase Option Of Choice?

    I'd prefer a hard copy. With 4 people in my household, using comcast we've been (legally) hitting against our bandwidth limit. Anything to limit that would be nice(unless it is a really good price like the amazon battlefield 3 deal).

    never heard of them, but they're pretty high on reseller ratings http://www.resellerratings.com/store/B_H_Photo_Video_Pro_Audio I ordered the same drive for the same price on amazon today, but since then they've raised their price $5 to $184.99

    i5 2500k and 6970 still be effecient in april 2012?!

    considering that computer puts the Wii U to shame, and other consoles aren't coming for some time after that. I expect the majority of games to scale around console level hardware, and thus should be fine as long as you're willing to drop settings a bit occasionally.

    Fix frame rate at 30fps

    Vsync will only limit the framerate maximum to your refresh rate IE it could be anywhere from 0-<your frame rate> in 1 increments (if tripple buffered) As in if he is miserable of frame rate jumps, it won't help mim If double buffered, it will limit your framerate to the lowest multiples...

    SSD Caching - do not understand it. p67 vs z68

    Being small, isn't what makes a cache fast. As in on a cpu, the cache is small because it's built into the cpu itself(at least for modern cpus) and building a bigger cache takes more transistors. Cache's being fast is also a relative term, for a cpu going to pickup data and/or instructions...

    Best static pressure fans for radiators?

    Noctua NF-P12 have great static pressure, now whether they're worth the money is questionable(I have 3, but honestly I probably could have went with cheaper fans and not have noticed)

    90c too hot for gtx 570 on furmark?

    intel expects their users to supply and/or install their own thermal solution. Meaning they plan for improperly installed heatsinks. Why would AMD or NViDIA expect that? I'm suspect their graphics drivers crash long before the card is actually damaged if there is the oem heat sink installed.

    After-market coolers for your 6xxx?

    I pulled the trigger on a Swiftech Komodo 6900, it should arrive this week. Though it probably wouldn't be a viable option unless you were already planning on water cooling your rig.

    P67 -> Z68 Motherboard swap, RAID Arrays intact?

    If I swap my P67 with a Z68 motherboard, system in sig, will my RAID arrays still be detected? Meaning I want to leave my data on my RAID5 array in particular without having to figure out some intermediate way to transfer it.
