    Dying 4870...Ideas for upgrade?

    Yeah thats what I was thinking, alot of those are side grades but the difference in price between the 5770 and the 5850 is almost £100 and thats alot. In an ideal world i would buy a 5870 and be done with it. DX 11 suppoort is a bonus thats why I was thinking of taking the 5770. Any one know...

    tf2 halloween update

    I played it for awhile its fun and seeing that you can play vanilla gametypes there is no gripe. I think its a cool idea, a real sense that valve still care about the TF2 community keeping the game fresh and new. I hope they continue with this kind of thing.

    Borderlands : Old Style or New Style

    I too am eagerly awaiting this game. The new art direction is for the better it stops it looking so generic and makes it stand out more. The sheer number of random weapons i think kinda of makes up for the customisation but I would have liked to have seen it included. OLD STYLE...

    Will World of Warcraft help PC gaming in the long run?
