    Farewell, Android Pay. We Hardly Tapped You

    I literally only use it when there are incentives by my credit card company to do so such as cash back bonus or statement credit. I can see it being handy to pay for stuff if you forget your wallet though. Using a credit card is generally slightly faster and easier.

    R9 Fury 4gb $240AR

    I've had good experiences too with crossfire and I'm even using 2x 7970 still going strong. Most major titles support crossfire and if they don't you likely don't need it to drive to high settings anyhow.

    40" Samsung UN40KU6290 4K $290 at Best Buy (or $265 with $25/$200 Amex offer)

    I bought this and tried to use as a PC monitor (coming from a Auria 27" 1440p monitor). Using it as a workspace was fairly nice and looked really good at 4k after adjusting the icon sizing in Windows to be close to what I was coming from at 27"/1440p. However, for gaming, I felt the image...

    Picked up a bundle @ MC in Mayfield Heights as well last week, thanks op. Sale rep said they knew it was a mis-print but were honoring the price. Also stacked with that retailmenot 10 off 50 coupon code. I asked about replacement insurance direct from Microcenter but they said it would only...

    Three Senior Executives To Leave AMD

    Not really a good sign that three of them are leaving at the same time. Still rooting for AMD to stay competitive. Big fan of their cost vs performance.

    7970 cf vs 290x

    I'm running 7970 CFX @ 1440p and don't have many problems running it. I think some people tend to exaggerate the effort involved to run CFX. Most games that require the graphics power of a single 7970 will support CFX, and lower resolution games that don't need CFX in the first place won't be...

    I hate you, Tigerdirect.

    I've had mostly a positive experience with them. I've gotten some very good deals (and some FAR items). Any direct rebates I've done with them have been processed very quickly (4x as fast as Newegg direct rebates). However, their customer service is lacking. Near BF 2013, I ordered a...

    HP Brings Back Windows 7 'By Popular Demand'

    Windows 8 is a good to great OS after installing Classic Shell. I alternate between metro UI and the desktop and I actually enjoy having the flexibility of both interfaces. Obviously, not everyone feels the same way :)

    [H]ot - Hotline Miami - $2.49

    As someone who doesn't play a lot of indie games, I really enjoyed this one, challenging, frustrating, but you feel good once you finally beat some of the tougher levels. Though, I'm still not sure how my 7970 was able to handle this game, so demanding :).

    What used card should I get for around $80 ?

    You probably will want to get more specific on what resolutions you plan on running. If you are below 1080p, I doubt you need any video card higher than 1 GB of memory. If I had to guess based on the limited info you have provided, getting the HD7770 might be your best bet.

    7970 users: does this card have coil whine? Sapphire Radeon HD 7970 OC with Boost

    My 7970 only tends to get coil whine when running certain benchmarks, most of the time its quiet.

    Never Settle Forever question

    Yep, just rumors, but it would be sick if it was. That 7950 deal I got not too long ago would be crazy cheap, but I'm not banking on it. The only game I've seen them add since I bought it was Saint Row, so not expecting it.

    Netflix Uses Pirate Sites to Determine What Shows to Buy

    I always thought it was funny that when cancelling netflix, they prompted to ask in the electronic survey if torrent sites were a reason why you are ending your service. They definitely don't pretend to turn a blind eye to everything like some companies do.

    Intel Solid-State Drive Pro 1500 Series Reduces IT Costs

    SSD's certainly would speed up to reboot time. It easily takes 5 minutes to reboot with all the security software in place that slows the machines down, so that's 10 minutes (5 for end user + 5 for IT worker) for everytime time there is an issue that requires help from IT. That would easily...
