    Battlefield 3 - Official Thread

    So my last BF was BF2 and BF1942 before that and the first weeks/months were pretty buggy before patches turned them from ugly duckling into gorgeous models whom I spent many a night staring at. Think it'll be like this for BF3? bug-wise? I haven't heard many things about the alpha gameplay...

    Halo: Reach CO-OP doesn't work on new 4GB Xbox 360 slim

    And to think I was tempted to get a slim and add a stick lying around. I guess I'll stick to my first gen refurb 360 till it dies out (a time bomb).

    MSI AMD Motherboard Question

    Not sure, but I was looking at that board. Good luck finding one. Santa Clara MC was sold out and the guy said the last time he had em in stock was early August. I just got an Asus.. not as good of a deal moneywise but it was still $40 off.

    EFF Slams Apple Patent as Traitorware

    The police could leave some lying on tables in places of business. If someone takes it, the device can be tracked even when "turned off" ala bait cars. It'll save the police $$$ using phones instead of cars. Plus they're apple products, you can't take out a battery!

    Awesome guys. I'm at and any Socket AM2 fans that you recommend? No overclocking so the cheaper options are preferable.

    Found 2 chips and a mobo in my room...

    I remember my uncle had them lying around and gave them to me. They collected dust until today when I was cleaning. I would just need to buy a fan that fit the mobo. Chips: AMD Athlon 64 5200+ ADA5200IAA6CS CCBYF 0620MPMW

    Bought a 9800GT.. unsure if I want to keep it

    Thanks guys. I'll keep it and I guess I'll buy a Corsair psu (or something of the sort) soon. Also, Danny Bui what program did you use to OC your chip? I'm a noob to OC'ing and would like to get some more life out of it once I upgrade the psu.

    Bought a 9800GT.. unsure if I want to keep it

    I bought a eVGA 9800GT from Fry's today for $80 - $40 MIR + tax = $47. It's sitting in its plastic wrap. Its sole purpose is Starcraft 2 med-high with the system in the sig. I keep seeing deals of better cards for $70-100 but I think the rest of the computer would bottleneck it. And it'd be more...

    Punkbuster A and B are kicking my #$(%*. Either A or B is the problem (forgot) and I've updated punkbuster several times to the current version. Firewall is allowing the program to go through. I gave up.

    Amazon Opening Retail Stores?

    For me, the only appeal of amazon is the no tax on items Buy a $50 item and save over $4 in taxes and it builds up.

    3G Network Speed Test Show Verizon as Fastest

    Does Sprint still advertise the "fastest 3G network in America" deal? If they saw this they'd probably complain that it wasn't an official sprint test and other factors could have skewed the data =P

    GPS Shoes Being Developed for Alzheimer’s Wanderers

    Xbox 360 has ruined pc gaming forever

    I don't like how influenced L4D pc is by its 360 counterpart. The DLC was delayed so that the 360 version would come out at the same time. Also, the interface is poor... joining a randomly picked server with no server list and no way to filter only low ping servers.

    Left 4 Dead - "3000% increase in sales"

    The sale managed to convince my friend to buy it... now I just wait until he plays well enough on expert. Also there should be something against the people who join the game, kill everyone and leave. Like take note of people who kill everyone within first 5 mins of the game in a few seconds.

    Plantronics .Audio 370 @ $12.99 FS

    I figure this is as good a place as any to ask. Is there a simple tivo-like machine that will record and pause tv? This is a gift for my sister so the simpler the better hence non-htpc. I did some searching but could not find anything decent under the $400 mark & no subscription. I'm new...

    Breaking Down the Cost to Print and Deliver the NYT

    The only way I see us putting newspapers as the auxiliary source is when we perfect flexible screens and make them cheaply affordable to the masses. And even then businesses and schools will still need to rely on newspaper for paper.
