    Seasonic Snow Silent 750W PSU LUCKY DRAW!

    Intel Devil's Canyon: The Good, the Bad, the Ugly @ [H]

    I have been using this processor and the new board for some time now. Asus Maximus VII Hero mobo. Not impressed at all. Boot up is very slow and I wait looking at the desktop while it loads the start up programs. Over clocking at 4.6Ghz with a Swift tech H240X seems to cool OK. But this...

    EA wants your feedback on Origin

    I had only bought 2 BF3 games from ea and they use Origin and that was the last games I bought from them. Will not buy any more that way. The whole way of doing business is bogus. Now Back to my other non EA-Origin games.:mad::D

    Corsair 500r Worth the money ?

    It's a nice case, but be carefull with what cables U use with the sata drives, there is very little room at the side of the case and the HD's. So your power supply should have the connectors with the 90deg head and not the straight thru ones. Also you may have to get your dremel out to grind...

    AMD Not Competing with Intel Anymore, Goes Mobile

    Since AMD can not do what it did so well at one time, what makes them think they can do something else well that they can't do well to start with? I guess they figure that tablets are taking off and no matter how well they do there is a larger market that will buy there products no matter how...

    NO when Vista first came out I was one of the first to buy ultimate in the stores. I jumped right on it and liked it. Win 7 I have on my new computer and I do not like it. The drivers that a lot of manufactures came out with do not work. A lot of hardware like the new mouse I got. MX518...
