    'The Elder Scrolls Online' Will Have a Subscription Fee

    Posting so I can prove I called it. Within one year of release or less, it will be announced that it is going F2P. I was looking forward to trying it out F2P, but won't bother now it's subscription. I played EQ2 for 4 years before quitting, couldn't justify 15 a month for the amount of...

    Infinity Blade: Dungeons Officially Cancelled

    Aaaand I wish I'd read this Saturday when you posted it. I realized after posting my last comment that it sounded snarky and I did not mean it to sound that way. Since I can't edit it, Here's my "I'm an idiot" apology post. Sorry for sounding snarky. :eek:

    I don't even look at anything but AMD video cards when I recommend cards to friends. I have never been disappointed by any card I've owned that had their tech inside.

    Galaxy 6 Weeks of Christmas GPU Giveaway!

    Galaxy creates video cards that look awesome in your case and operate exceptionally well when stressed. They also provide great service when service is needed. When I need a video card (and I REALLY need one now) I look no further than Galaxy for the best of the best!:cool:

    XFX AMD Radeon™ HD 7950 Graphics Card Lucky Draw

    I would love to win this one. I'm out of the upgrade game due to cost, so still playing with a 5870. Nowadays, component failure is my only viable reason to upgrade,and I built this thing too well . . . :cool:

    Artists Make Pittance On Streaming Services

    I use the Imatch service and everyone is missing a key point here. I have used the service to match all the MP3's I created from albums I have bought over the last 20 plus years. If the artist is getting paid each time I stream that song, then he is getting paid many times over for the song I...

    I've been an Antec fan for a LONG time and all my desktops use either their cases or supplies or both. I've never had any Antec product die on me and appreciate their reliability.

    Four Weeks of Galaxy Give-Aways!

    As I was walking home one day from work (I walk both ways uphill in the snow mind you!) pondering how I could ever get my wife to game with me, it hit me. GALAXY!!! Didn't I read (as I surfed [H]ardOCP at work) they were going to give away a great video card? I ran home to check and...

    Corsair HS1 Gaming Headset Give-Away - 5 Sets!!!

    Its not so much the hearing that I'm having issues with, its the duck tape holding (barely) my current headphones together that keeps sticking to my head and falling off. These would allow me to finally hear in my games what I'm missing as well as let me wear them for longer than 10 minutes...

    Internal Microsoft Vista SP1 Video?

    Aww common guys, it's funny! It was meant to make fun of themselves and Springsteen, and provide a good laugh. when you have as much money as Microsoft Marketing at your disposal, this is what can happen :eek: Remember this is the company that also treats its employees to keg parties from...

    QuadGT vs Maxiumus vs GA-X38-DQ6 - never ending dilemma

    I've had great results with the Asus Maximus as well. You should have no problem undervolting with this board if that is what you want to do. The Intel chips OC so easily, I don't really understand why anyone wouldn't want to at least tweak a little bit.

    OCZ Memory Rebate - Why You Probably Won't Get Your Money Back

    I will 100% agree that if a person meets all the requirements and submits properly, and still doesn't get the rebate, the company should be held 100% liable and should cover the rebate amount personally. This thread was started about an OCZ rebate and they have proven in these forums that...

    OCZ Memory Rebate - Why You Probably Won't Get Your Money Back

    If you don't mind waiting, thats fine for you, but I will have had the item for 6 months to a year longer than you did at a great price that only required a little attention to detail and effort on my part. Also, when buying used, you never know when you'll run into that item that was a little...

    Possible [H]ot Deals: CompUSA store closings (Part 2)

    I call it the "Christmas gift mentality". I've been guilty of it myself at times. Once you decide you want to get a certain item for someone, you will pay almost any price to get it and a "closeout sale" is irrisistable. I just bought a 55.00 item online and payed 20.00 to get it here...

    Just bought an X-Fi, what do I need to know??

    I have used that card on Vista 32 bit and I would download the latest vista drivers and not trust the disk. Just download the drivers and install them and you shouldn't have a problem. Also, if you plan to use the card in games and want EAX to work, download the alchemy program from creative...

    Possible [H]ot Deals: CompUSA store closings (Part 2)

    Hey, Quit picking on Annaconda. The link he posted does mention in user comments someone personally asking a store employee and they had been told that store would be closed after Christmas. it looks like based on that and the letter we all saw posted that different stores will close at...

    OCZ Memory Rebate - Why You Probably Won't Get Your Money Back

    I have only my personal experience to back my point up, but I've never been burned on a rebate and I've done plenty of them. I got a postcard saying my rebate had been denied due to missing UPC code ONE time and a phone number to call. I called, told them I had copies of everything I sent in...

    OCZ Memory Rebate - Why You Probably Won't Get Your Money Back

    I'm glad you don't think 30.00 is anything. It is to me. The 79.00 deal was also an after rebate price. The case is 140 normally and can be had without rebate for around 100 plus shipping. Still not a deal to you? Oh well. Some of us like to save where we can. Also, as I said in my...

    OCZ Memory Rebate - Why You Probably Won't Get Your Money Back

    But you're missing the point of rebates. They wouldn't offer rebates if every store processed it for them as it doesn't make them money (read my earlier post for the explanation) Even if they did offer rebates, it wouldn't be for the ridiculously low amounts you sometimes see. Their are...

    Possible [H]ot Deals: CompUSA store closings (Part 2)

    I visited my store in Clearwater Florida and there were the same 5%, 10%, and 20% "sales". Of course they did mark everything up to full MSRP and then some before taking the % off. If the closed by Christmas post above is true, those deals just might get better quickly!! Please do all your...
