    Google Exploring Fiber for Chicago and Los Angeles

    This is exactly what happened to OKC. Ever since Google said they may potentially be coming to the area with fiber, Cox Communications ALL OF A SUDDEN has gigabit ethernet on the way. When before the max tier was 100mb for ridiculous prices.

    Oh Dangman, you always come in clutch for me over the years. Haha! Thanks again for your input. Ok so apparently he already bought the motherboard. I've seen lots of great reviews though so fingers crossed.* I switched the HDD to the Toshiba you mentioned. Also changed the RAM to the...

    New gaming build #34534737345

    Here I am once again, like every couple years, to ask the advice of the [H]ivemind for builds. This build will be for my brother, who's PC is now far too ancient to play any new games the way he would like to. 1) What will you be doing with this PC? Gaming? Photoshop? Web browsing? etc Gaming...

    New Gaming Build!

    That makes a lot of sense, and you're right, who knows how long it'll take me to get another GPU for SLI/XFIRE. I guess I was just a little scared by your recommendation of a 650w PSU because my current PC uses one from Antec and this system will probably generate a lot less power than the one...

    New Gaming Build!

    Thank you for your reply Dangman! That cheaper motherboard looks great, because yes, I don't really need all the features on the PRO. Not sure what I'd do with WIFI and bluetooth on my motherboard? Haha. As far as the H100i goes, I would like to learn to properly overclock and yes I want to try...

    Counter Strike: Global Offensive

    Been loving the game so far! One thing that is bothering me though is that my server browser never shows any servers, even with all filters not selected. If I do a "find quick match" or whatever it loads just fine but I would like to select which map/server I am going to specifically. Anyone...

    So I've been looking for a new MMO. I played EQ forever, WoW for about 5 years, and a little bit of Rift and SWG. I haven't played any MMOs in awhile now and I have that itch coming back. I don't really have any RL friends playing GW2, is there a HardOCP guild in the game or something? I...

    Sleeping Dogs

    Just completed the game (minus a few left over drug busts and lockboxes), and it was a blast! Overall, I put in about 24 hours. My steam says 28 but there were times I left the game paused for long periods of time. I would recommend this game to anyone that likes these types of open world...

    Sleeping Dogs

    Looks pretty good from what I've seen, I always enjoy those types of games. There's a 10% off the 49.99 price tag on it for pre purchases, but that is always risky.

    Max Payne 3 -- When Rockstar 'pushes the envelope'

    I really really really want to like this game but as soon as I installed it I can't join any games with my friends in a party, let alone half the time the invites sent through social or in game do not work. So i said fuck it, i'll play single player...Well, the first hour was GREAT, and now...

    Remembering Max

    I also did the same thing, and I loaded up Max Payne 1 to play, but the max resolution it let me load was 1440x900. How do I set it to 1920x1080? Do I force it in Steam somehow?
