    Xbox 720 will have 'graphics like Avatar' - AMD

    lol. they are going to build the thing to be handicapped from the start in order to maximize profits. I am not expecting much at all from the next generation of consoles. The kind of hardware that they put into those things is an insult.

    Steam - Ubisoft Week - May 23->30

    farcry 2 has nice graphics and good aesthetics, but I don't remember it bringing my rig to its knees in the same way as say crysis. the game is a total turd. Its nothing like farcry. All you do is drive/run through africa and run into the same respawning dudes at checkpoints over and over...

    Anyone still playing EVE?

    finally let my subs lapse. don't see myself returning anytime soon... it's just not the same game at all. basically everyone I ever knew that played has quit the game... basically everything we ever did is no longer viable or just no longer the same. perhaps the final nail in the coffin was...

    New Deus Ex 3 gameplay vid: thoughts?

    looks like crap so far, but whether it is a good game or not will depend on the story and atmosphere... I doubt it will be as deep as the original.

    Buy Street Fighter 4 to help the people of Japan

    Most "gamers" these days are not PC gamers. Not even console gamers. They are either playing farmville(which is worth like $6b because of people buying lawn gnomes) or playing some cell phone game.

    Why is the name EA so tainted?

    because they think it is a good idea to buy wildly successful game studios and start tinkering with them.

    Homefront - March 2011

    what a joke that they try to call it a "large scale warfare game"... With 32 players.... large. yeah right. Someone has never played planetside. Unless we are talking about several hundred or more players all fighting over the same objective it is not large scale. Heck I think there used...

    LG 42LD520 42" 1080p 120Hz LCD HDTV $499 w/ FREE SHIPPING

    If you buy a LG TV make sure that its an ips panel... My LG LE325400 is pretty much the best 32" TV I have ever seen. But it is the IPS version. The tv's with VA panels are complete junk and not worth buying.

    Northbridge overclocking?

    Thanks for the info, but if I set the HT link to 10x, it sets the NB multiplier to 10x regardless of what setting I try to use in the bios. so far this bios has not allowed me to set each one independently and accept each one. It did on the older version. Previously I had the HT link set at...

    Northbridge overclocking?

    thanks for the suggestion. HT link speed seems to be defaulting to 2600mhz. Want it to be lower than that? Tried setting it manually to 2.6 from auto and no joy. Clearing cmos not so fun. ht link 2.4ghz seems to allow me to change the nb multiplier... However I guess you may be right about it...

    Northbridge overclocking?

    I am using a Gigabyte GA-MA78GM-S2H rev 1.1 w/ and just dropped in a shiny new 1090T. Previously I was using an old Phenom I X4 9850 and could achieve stable 2200mhz nb speed. Now I am using a new bios to support the newer cpu and the options are a little different. I have tried setting...

    Which Phenom II?

    Well I got my 1090T. Amazon did a terrible job of packaging it. Box was dented right where the cpu is. The chip seems fine, though. Problem is that the stock cpu fan seems to basically be the loudest fan I have ever heard. and I used to have a very loud delta cpu fan and a extra loud oversized...

    Which Phenom II?

    I don't know whether I would consider FSB overclocking the old school way. Both have been around for ages. But besides the price, the unlocked multiplier is definitely the big plus for amd to me. Having an unlocked multiplier or being able to unlock it sure makes overclocking much more of a...

    The future of S3D gaming, is it really a fad?

    I did stereoscopic gaming back in the 90's. Was fun but not much interest/support. Would not be surprised if it disappeared again. I would be interested if it was 100% solid/supported/no hassle That's what we said in 1997.

    that is damn nice. Just changed my upgrade plans & timetable significantly. I need to get an AM3 phenom II but no idea which one, at least I know I can afford it.

    Upgrading fail

    wait... you can drop an AM3 cpu into some AM2+ setups? Doesn't the integrated memory controller on the AM3 only support DDR3 and not DDR2?
