    Revolution or Thunderbolt

    Sure. The battery life is TERRIBLE; one of the reviews, I think the Anandtech one basically confirmed that it's pretty much just as bad as the TB. If you're not rooting or using Go Launcher or something like that, the TouchWiz UI is really, really ugly. It's just a single-core phone using the...

    Advise on choosing a micro-atx case

    How firm are the size requirements? I'm pretty sure the CM will fit in the NZXT Vulcan on an 1156 motherboard and it's 55 bucks at Directron, but the overall case dimensions are 16x7x16.6.

    Biggest FAIL of Quakecon

    I don't get all the hate towards this guy. Because let's be honest, 1/50 is still terrible odds. Much, much better than Powerball, sure. But would YOU have paid the expected value ($1000+) for a ticket for a 2% chance of winning the car? Or even $750 or $500? Right on the spot? Probably not. So...

    Gigabyte 8800GT RMA replacement offer

    Nobody cares how much you paid for it. Are you trying to say you deserve a card worth $265 right now? That's ridiculous.

    Tessellation not working in Heaven benchmark?

    It doesn't matter, it's only a reporting error. It shouldn't affect functionality if it shows 10.1.

    Whats the next Mac Book Pro?

    I say if you like a particular machine right now and it does everything you need, just buy it. Or ideally wait until the new machines are announced but you can still buy the old ones, because you may even lose a feature that you personally need, like Firewire or swappable batteries.

    Super Plain Vanilla Powercolor 5770 Variant

    If you are considering paying for a single 5870, the Sapphire Vapor-X version exhausts into the case and not out the back. Might be a bit of a wait though.

    Fact searching, crime of the century. Sorry to step on your wife's tinfoil hat. The government should be on the alert against these dastardly malicious eBay completed item searchers. Sure. Here's one...

    By the way, since you had to be a dick about it... So that would be Dec. 20? Assume? There's no need to assume. Let's see your past auctions, seller "mediaplayaz." That's you, isn't it? Huh. Doesn't look like you've sold anything in the last two weeks...

    5870 gray screen crash.

    Of course I expect the worst from you, with the comments you made. If you really did disclose the issues, then I stand corrected. But from what you said, it sure didn't sound like it. You said: "I would try and get it sold FAST before any value is lost." If you're going to disclose that yours...

    5870 gray screen crash.

    Yeah, unload your possibly defective card "fast" to someone on eBay. I'm guessing you didn't bother to disclose that yours was locking up. Good job.

    Bottom-Fishing: XFX Radeon HD4350 1 GB?

    When I first read the thread title, I thought it said "Bottom-Fisting." That's one way to show your video card who's boss.

    Massive's iCore7 SLI GTX 260 rig:

    Hey Massive, did you mod that chrome piece surrounding the USB ports at the bottom of the faceplate? It looks like it has a different "frosted" type texture in addition to the shiny chrome portion. I just got this case yesterday and my chrome panel is 100% shiny--and it looks awful, I hate it. I...

    New SFF gamers case: presentation and advices

    Perhaps...but I'm leaning towards some kind of error. If they're really all out, it's a little strange to just send a confirmation for a different product altogether. Also, I don't see that anyone ordered the same one as me--I chose the black heart with window and no fans. But yeah, let's...

    New SFF gamers case: presentation and advices

    Huh, that's odd then. I ordered the black heart too, and then got the confirmation for the classic, so I thought I made a mistake and I preordered again. Another classic.

    Does lapping my CPU destroy it?

    You've gotta make a shitload of money if an hour or two of it will buy a CPU upgrade, but that demonstration of opportunity cost is bogus for salaried employees anyway. It's not like you even have an option to get paid at your calculated hourly rate for work you do outside the workday.
