    6990 Radeon, 700 Watt PSU Enough?

    A good rule of thumb is to always have 30% "reserve" in your power supply, at least on a high end gaming rig. Here are some reasons: 1) You want it to work on the hottest day of the year, where its output could be a lot less than in ideal conditions. 2) Capacitor aging can decrease the output...

    My thoughts on BF3...

    It should have been called Bad Company 3. 'Nuff said. PS: They made the inventory load-out system needlessly deep. 4 clicks to change my scope? Why?

    Gap in between my Toxic 6950's?

    They will be fine. The top one will likely be a bit loud if you flip the 6970 switch over, but it won't die or anything.

    Homefront, $15 at Gamersgate (Activates/Requires Steam)

    The single player is worth it for $15. The multiplayer is terrible.

    I love AMD because my 300 mhz K6-II+ played Half-Life 1 better than a Pentium II.

    If you don't think a dual 6870 setup will outperform a single 6950, you must be smoking crack.

    Can windows 7 do a quadro and a geforce?

    Short answer: No. You cannot install two different nvidia display drivers at the same time. Long answer: Kinda. There are hacks out there to make the driver think that the Quadro is a Geforce or vice versa, but that kind of makes me nervous given that a workstation usually has to be 110%...

    HP Touchpad 16GB $99, 32GB $149, Active for .edu

    I wouldn't even take a tablet for free. Hate the things and don't understand the appeal. Still a nice markdown, I suppose.

    Microcenter - Phenom II X4 840 - $49.99

    Nice price! Too bad you still can't find a combo for less than $100, since the i3 2100 beats this in many tasks while using less power. If you can overclock this a bit and unlock the extra cache, it might be a helluva deal.

    Corsair H50 Best Buy $46

    I use 2 screws on either side of the thing. Just make sure you use some "regular" fan screws in the remaining two holes of the fan that is actually connected to the case. It works fine.

    Lian Li Lancool PC-K58W -- $65 Free Shipping, No MIR

    Lack of painted interior is total dealbreaker for me. You could paint it yourself, but unless you can powder coat, it will not be as resilient.
