    Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare

    Damn, some of ya have some serious anger issues about a game. If you don't like the game, vote with your wallet and move on. Anyways... I picked up this game for $50 to see if it fills my "regrettable game purchase of 2014". Or rather, "can it be any worse than Battlefield 4 at launch til...

    HT off for BF4 = amazing smooth performance!

    This thread inspired me to do some personal testing since I was thinking of turning on my HT for streaming purposes. I do want a new video card but currently I can survive with custom medium settings until Black Friday or my birthday in December. In-Game settings: 1920x1080 fullscreen, High...

    Digital Storm?

    For what its worth, Digital Storm is a SF Bay Area company (yay local!) and heard they're not too bad. I had a friend that ordered a laptop from them last year. From what I heard, the few times he chatted with support they seemed friendly and helpful at the time. Do you know someone nearby...

    EVGA GTX 650 + Assasin's Creed 3 80$

    I noticed this is being offered to all eVGA cards on newegg (except certain 670's and 680's, seeing a 2 game offer instead).

    Galaxy 6 Weeks of Christmas GPU Giveaway! Week 4

    I like Galaxy because they put quality coolers on the video cards and run rather quiet (from what I read in reviews).

    3 sticks of 2gb or 3 8gb gigabyte x58-ud5

    I didn't buy anything yet, still deciding on the 6GB Vengeance and save money towards the new system upgrade, or buy a 16GB kit (4x4GB) to replace my RAM and transition it to the Ivy Bridge build.

    3 sticks of 2gb or 3 8gb gigabyte x58-ud5

    Thanks OP, I was gonna start a similar thread, in the case of a ASUS P6T. I do ask tho: would it be advisable to add more RAM if its just the same company (ie Corsair but adding 6GB Vengeance on top of 6GB dominator)? I remember mixing RAM was fine as long as voltages and speeds matched, but...

    [H]ardOCP & ASUS GeForce GTX 660Ti DirectCU II Giveaway

    I own a ASUS Radeon 585 DirectCU card and I love this thing: not only its quiet and I can't hear it, its OCed to the performance of a stock 5870. Having a ASUS GTX 660 Ti DirectCU II would definitely get me closer to 60FPS in Battlefield 3 and have a card ready for future games (Planetside 2...

    Battlefield 4

    I really hope this is BF2143, just using the Battlefield 4 name. I am still enjoying my time with BF3 but not wanting a sequel just yet.

    Got a free QX6700.. Ideas, anyone?

    I don't have the same CPU as you but I did just a mini-upgrade from my 4.5 year old system to my current system in signature. I was running a Q6600 at stock, 4GB RAM, and my 5850. For Battlefield 3 iirc, I did mostly medium settings, shadows at low, motion blur/AO/AA/something else at off...

    Antec Case & PSU Combo Lucky Draw!!!!!

    I loved their P182, always quiet enough even when I am sleeping. When I rebuilt my system, I knew I should of spend a tad more on a P280 instead :D

    Q6600 and BF3?

    Adding my experiences with my system (see sig) and Battlefield 3: I'm pretty shocked being able to run this at all at 1920x1080p. With some tweaking, messing with drivers, reading around forums I frequent, I am able to pull between 45-55 fps during firefights on 64 player Grand Bazaar and...

    GeForce LAN 6 Oct 14-16th

    And sold out within 5 minutes. A buddy of mine plus myself barely got in. If you did get a registration page to fill out, check your "My account" - I got a surprised after being frustrated. Next Geforce LAN needs to be at a bigger place, a lot of my friends couldn't get in :( Edit: I heard...

    GeForce LAN 6 Oct 14-16th

    I live 20 minutes away + a bridge, ITS ON! I've been to all but one nVidia Geforce LAN and they are awesome to go to. With the second one iirc, they did give every attendee a retail box copy of Battlefield 2; with Geforce 4 they gave out Crysis. I wonder if they will give out Battlefield 3 :D

    New Report Suggests Battlefield 3 to Bypass Steam

    I'll buy a boxed copy if I must, but I think EA is making a major mistake not putting this on Steam. Sure they want to pimp out Origin...but at what cost? I still think EA will put the game on there very late, if their recent game Alice is worth an indicator.

    The good old Q6600

    I still got my Q6600; I was gonna upgrade in January when Sandy Bridge was coming out but then that chipset fiasco happened. I'm waiting til the BF3 demo to see if it destroys my CPU, if Bad Company 2 wasn't a big enough indicator.

    Corsair HS1A analog Headset $49.95 & shipping + $10.00 rebate

    I knew about this but thanks for the reminder to go pick one up tomorrow. Nice to know a few I can drive to, but its too bad the San Mateo one isn't open it (2 minute drive vs 20 minutes). I can only comment on the B&M side but I find their customer service really nice.

    Rift: Planes of Telara... looking good! (MMORPG)

    I think I'm better served by reading the entire thread, but how is Rift several weeks after launch? I got some friends asking me to join them and despite enjoying the beta, the bad taste of Aion and Warhammer is still in my mouth and with that my sense of hesitation. I was going to wait for...

    If EA suddenly went out of business, would the gaming industry be better off?

    A dead EA is a bad thing, despite what they do; I rather see Activision go down first. With EA out of the picture, it would cause a hell of a shock to the video game market and other worse companies would pick up the pieces and make it even worse. Unless Valve steps in... I'll hate to see my...

    Crysis 2 multiplayer demo headed to pc!

    Well, this ran surprisingly well, but since it was in DX9 mode I'm not surprised. But seeing auto-aim on my default just seems disgraceful and a slap to the PC FPS crowd. Elitist I know and I can turn it off, but did we really need this? I'll only get this if the Mechwarrior mod transitions...
