    Battlefield 4 **Official Discussion Thread**

    Are there any servers like the old CTU Call of Duty MW 1? Team kills are active, must use sites (no spray and pray with any weapon), and once you are dead you are done for the match.

    Battlefield 4 **Official Discussion Thread**

    This has always been my attitude towards all games. Its just another form of entertainment and a stress reliever for me sometimes. You can log in, put on your headphones, and disappear into another work for an hour once or twice a week. Nothing more and no different than a good game of Pacman...

    How to stream from PC to TVs in the house?

    Excuse me lack of knowledge but I have to think there is an easy way to accomplish what I want. We have a wireless network in our house already. My desktop PC is hardwired to the router. We have two TVs, one is connected wirelessly via a PS3, the other via a Sony bluray player. Is there a...

    Selling personal items on ebay and taxes?

    Paypal only reports to the IRS via a 1099-K if sales to a single Paypal account are over $20,000 for the year (2013). You could claim a loss if you aren't making anything but unless you are audited, it doesn't matter.

    Wow, I've not had a single crash with the game yet. Just went to play for the first time since last weekend and insane flickering. What the hell did they do to this game? Flickering even in the small display window of the deployment screen. Guess I'll go back to BF3 for now when I want to...

    Call of Duty - ??

    Yes, the servers on the original modern warfare (COD 4) are still pretty busy at any given time. Lots of cool server mods now too. I used to frequent the CTU server (very strict rules) and still pop in once in a while.

    Disney Pulls Access to Purchased Christmas Videos

    It was intentional. They make you "think" you own it but clearly you don't. More like a long term rental on their terms. And when you upload anything to a remote Cloud based storage, you are giving someone else access to the info and ownership rights. Read all the terms....

    From the release notes: -Made the NVidia 331.82 driver version mandatory for all players. -Disabled DirectX 11.1 on NVidia cards that have outdated drivers. I'm on a pair of GTX570s and have been using 314.22 w/o issue. I believe all drivers after that basically don't work for the 500...

    Will eBay approve last minute claim on me?

    If they buyer decides to contact their credit card company and do a charge back, you will be screwed. Ebay and Paypal will come back to you for the money and you won't get your item back either. They do this all the time, even after finding in favor of the seller for the same item.

    Damn, I should have waiting until Friday to buy this I guess. Bought a copy on ebay over the weekend for $40. Played it last night a bit and was worried I have issues but didn't experience any crashes in 4 hours of play. Was scared to upgrade my drivers from 314.22 to 331.82 because I was...

    Any recomended Windows Ebay Software?

    List one and then all you have to do is click "sell similiar" and update the description and title and change the pics. Remember ebay charges listing fees, 10% fee on the final value including the shipping costs, and Paypal will charge you another 3-4%.

    Xbox One Launch Day

    Not trying to troll, but why are people paying so much for these and PS4s? Afraid they won't get one on launch day locally? I want to get a PS4 but didn't bother to preorder when I could have via Amazon. No way I'm paying that much over retail. I assume all my local stores will have them on...

    Small cpu cooler? Downdraft air vs water? Lian Li PC-V650

    Look for a Thermalright Ultima 90. A smaller version of the TRUE 120 and nearly as good. I believe it's discontinued but you can find them new several places still and on ebay.

    Frank's 2013 upgrade.......

    Don't use those felt tips on any plastic or plexi. Even at low speeds it will simply burn the material. Do it by hand. If you insist on using power tools get a real bench buffer, set it on the lowest speed possible, and use the loosest sewn cotton or microfiber wheel you can find. Something on...

    Frank's 2013 upgrade.......

    Not sure why he used that cheap car polish but there are much better products out there for the application, namely Novus. http://www.pilotgearonline.com/novus-plastic-polish.html?___store=default You can even try Meguiars Plast-X but its a bit agressive for clear plastic.
