    5870 owners - are you upgrading soon or waiting for 8 series or ...?

    This thing was a beast and still has a bite :) I've been using the sapphire 5870 for about 3 years now. Left it at stock. No issues at all. To my surprise, it even let me play metro 2033 (advanced dof off, everything else on) and crysis 2 with fraps at 1920x1080 on a 27" monitor. Last thing...

    Anyone here remember "DWANGO?"

    Just reminiscing about old times...was wondering if there are any [H] members who participated in it back in the 90s. I was on the Chicago server. My favorite has to be deathmatch in doom2, a custom map (or "WAD" called dwango5), super shotgun, and 3 others. Other games I played "multiplayer"...

    Strange response from Dell about a simple question RE: Inspiron 15R

    Possible to create a mixed playlist of youtube vids and locally stored media?

    I was wondering if it is possible to create a playlist of youtube videos along with locally stored media (like mp3). From what I've seen, it is not. The youtube vids are seen as links. If you have a media player with a built-in web browser, of course you can play the youtube videos, but I...

    You guys were right about the JVC HA-RX 900

    These are some epic phones on a budget! After my Sennheiser HD590s died I was looking to buy some new headphones. It was between the JVC HA-RX900, Beyerdynamic DT 770, Sennheiser HD555 and HD595. After reading several reviews both here and other sites raving about the HA-RX900, I took a...
