    Micro Center: i5 3570K $189.99 + $50 off select Z77 mobos

    Just picked up a 3570K and a Sabertooth board for $328! I originally bought the UD5 but was reading some iffy reviews on it so I took the drive back and exchanged it for the sabertooth. Im not sure what the customer service rep did but after I walked out and looked at my receipt it showed...

    Intel 320 160GB SSD + Battlefield 3 combo for $154.99 AR FS

    I sent mine out on the 31st of november. USPS said they recieved my documents on the 2nd. I didn't get a confirmation that they had gotten my documents until a few days ago. A day after that they sent the email saying I am going to recieving my rebate in 8-12 weeks. Just be patient it'll come.

    Seasonic X-1250 vs Plat 1000. Better value?

    Ended up going with the X-1250. Seemed like I couldn't go wrong with either unit and I'm sure having the extra power available isn't a bad thing. I got in in the computer earlier in the week and have been satisfied with it. The finish on this unit is top notch. They give you enough cables to...

    Seasonic X-1250 vs Plat 1000. Better value?

    I think you are right. I will monitor the 2 and wait for one to be at good enough deal to jump on. Thanks for the insight!

    Seasonic X-1250 vs Plat 1000. Better value?

    Would you agree that 3 overclocked GTX480's + i7 920 overclocked is going to draw somewhere close to 1000watts? I currently only have 2 but as the used prices for them drop I may end up picking up a 3rd. If I go with the Platinum 1000 I have pretty much ruled out the possibility of 3 480's. I...

    Seasonic X-1250 vs Plat 1000. Better value?

    I am deciding between these 2 ps's and am having trouble deciding which is the better value. I have read all of the Plat 1000 review and it appears to be a near flawless unit. My issue is that I would be better future proofed If I went with the x-1250 but there are no reviews yet to confirm it...

    Triple Mount Large Screen with smaller side.

    The general recommendation for the side panels is going to be to use something with an IPS panel so that you can take advantage of the better viewing angles. LED or not, TN panels offer poorer viewing angles that are greatly exaggerated when rotated in portrait. As for a mount, any mount...

    Im going to stop by the store again tomorrow with the receipt pic and my receipt and see if they will credit me the difference. Figured at $60 it was still worth it but why not try and get it for $48.

    [H]OT! Crucial M4 64GB SSD $115 shipped -ends 5/17

    You lose TRIM support if you raid 2 drives together but gain read/write performance. I have owned a couple single drive SSD's as well as raided SSD's and I don't perceive a difference in speed between the 2 when using my computer normally (benchmarks tell a different story). If you are doing a...

    MC Post-Mother's Day XFX Event

    Im not sure I agree with that. I believe they are like any other store in that you need to shop at the appropriate time to save the most. Microcenter regularly has great deals on Power supplies, Hard drives, DVD burners, etc. For guys like me who live in NJ its tough to beat MC. Sales tax at...

    New HTPC

    Since most people are more interested in busting your balls then actually helping I will offer some insight. Phenom II x4's paired with an 880/890 chipset motherboards are more than capable at playing HD content without the need for a video card. I do not believe you will get bitstreaming...

    what to look for in a sceen for HTPC

    I would also look closely at the televisions input lag if you are planning on using a TV for PC gaming. Most TV's do some sort of post processing to the image before it is displayed and in many situations this can greatly increase input lag. Just something else to consider.

    Sony to Get PS3 Hacker’s PayPal Records

    Of course, but what is Sony doing here that is different then any other software maker TOS? I guess actually pursuing a civil case against someone? Someone was going to set the precedent at some point, right? Jammie Thomas was made an example for the RIAA, The Hurt locker torrenters were...

    Sony to Get PS3 Hacker’s PayPal Records

    LOL, c'mon dude, please use common sense. Just because I choose to leave my door open does NOT give somebody the right to steal from my house. Oh and btw, our judicial system says its the robber fault. Your logic is ridiculous. Sony is selling you the product, you own the physical hardware...

    Sony to Get PS3 Hacker’s PayPal Records

    TOS should be challenged as they appear to merely confuse someone into agreeing without actually understanding or reading said TOS, nonetheless it is why you always hear about "reading the fine print". His system yes, not his software. Like most software I'd be willing to bet you are only...

    Sony to Get PS3 Hacker’s PayPal Records

    I am not supporting or defending what Sony is doing, rather just trying to clarify that some people are misinterpreting the situation (if you were referring to me). The solution to what you are talking about would be to simply not purchase products from companies who do not wish for you to...

    Sony to Get PS3 Hacker’s PayPal Records

    Isn't it less about what you are doing to the physical purchase and more about what you are doing to the software that is on the physical purchase? This is not the same as you taking apart your PS3 and installing some leet cooling fan or upgraded processor. This is about modding software which...
