    Weird graphics problem *Pic Inside*

    I'm posting this for my friend. What could be causing the line coming out of that dude. It happens pretty often where weird lines come out of objects and people in games. They go away in a few seconds but it's definitely not supposed to happen. It's not just in Team Fortress 2 either that it...

    GT:HD vs. Real Life

    Wow! I was looking at this and didn't pay attention to the GTHD water stamp and got the real life one confused with the GTHD one. That's just stunning. BTW mods, I'm hosting this on my photobucket account so not bandwidth stealing.

    Xbox 360 Reliability Poll

    It seems like every day a new "my 360 broke" thread appears on this section. It is well documented that the 360 has been far from perfect from a QC standpoint but I am curious as to how much of this is just due to a lot of people having one or if there is a real quality issue. This is not an...

    Interesting comparison between 360 and PS3 (numbers).

    I did some googling to find the NPD sales numbers for each console, month by month, so I could compare the sales of the PS3 vs. the sales of the 360 from each consoles launch till February of the next year (because Feb is the most recent numbers we have for PS3). Xbox 360 Nov 05: 330,000...

    My Microsoft Wireless Entertainment Desktop 7000 review

    I know this just came out so there aren't many reviews out there. Although I cannot compare it to the DiNovo (sp?) I'll do my best to give a thorough review of the product. I had a coupon for an online retailer and they were the cheapest retailer for the product so overall I got it for a decent...

    Wireless card (Netgear WG311v3) and Vista x64 problem.

    Ok I installed x64 Vista Ultimate on my PC. Almost all the drivers automatically updated except for 2. The sound adapter and the Netgear card.

    L.A. Noire full trailer.

    When I saw the "teaser" trailer for this game I have to say it really sparked my interest. Being a fan of noire films like "Chinatown" this idea of a 1940's Los Angelos sounded like a great idea for a game. Anyway the full trailer is out and I must say I'm even more excited to see how this game...

    MSI K8N Neo4 Platinum and AMD64 Venice compatibility

    Does anyone know if the AMD64 Venice 3200+ CPU works with the MSI K8N Neo4 Platinum (non-sli)? It's not listed on their website as compatible (I'm assuming because it's new) but I don't wanna order the Venice and have it not work.
