    HBO's Streaming Service May Cost Almost 2X as Much as Netflix

    I'd pay $15 a month for HBO, probably 9 months a year. That plus Netflix for $25 a month, is still reasonable vs the necessity of a cable sub to get HBO currently.

    SilverStone Nightjar NJ520 520W Fanless PSU Review @ [H]

    Since there is a blank image at the end of the article over the power supplies name, is it safe to assume that it won an award, and just didn't have the image linked?

    AMD R9 290X Hits $900 On Newegg. Thanks *coin

    I sold a Gigabyte 7950 Windforce for $450 USD this week. I paid ~$400 for it over two years ago. I added $50, and picked up a Gigabyte GTX 580 OC Windforce. Selling 2+ year old consumer level hardware at a profit is unheard of, previous to the coin rush.

    Bethesda Announces Star Cast for The Elder Scrolls Online

    I've been in the beta. Anybody expecting an Elder Scrolls game will be severely disappointed. They use the TES as the framework for the story, but it doesn't play like any Elder Scrolls you've tried. The combat is abysmal, absolutely mind numbing and clunky. Break from the path and go...

    Is Showrooming Rude?

    Is Blizzard Making StarCraft 2 Free to Play?

    I am uninterested in playing with the hordes of Brazilians, who are not much better then a race of subterranean rat men, spamming "BR? BR? BR? BR?", "HUHUHUHUHUHUHUH" AND "FUCK AMERICA FAG" even when they play on Euro F2P servers. They are the bane of every F2P scene. Ever.

    Best CPU's of all time?

    I always tried to upgrade to solid "bang for the buck" processors. My first was a Thunderbird 800 Mhz that reached over 1 Ghz, then I saved and got a Core2Duo 6300 which went from 2.1 ghz to 2.5 or so, but then I hit the jackpot and got my Q6600@2.4 Ghz up to 3.2 Ghz. That lasted me all the...

    Diablo 3 Has No AMD Eyefinity / NVIDIA Surround Support

    Since when has this been Blizzards "most fervent userbase"? They have not produced a game that pushes high end systems in 10 years. While Eyefinity would be nice, and on Blizzards budget should be included, it's laughable to think that power users make up the bulk of Blizzard consumers.

    Russia, China On Top Copyright Pirates List Again

    The US uses this list to try to strong arm countries into implementing its foreign policies, always beneficial to Americans, and not always related to piracy.

    Buyer's remorse 7950/7970?

    I bought a Gigabyte 7950 Windforce for $440, that does 1200 core, 1600 mem at 1.193V, so I am very happy with the purchase. If I had a 7950 that did not overclock well, I imagine I would be raging right now.
