    Yeah I got one today at Best Buy, I am even more impressed with the 3d than I was when I first saw it, I never had an n64 so bring on the remakes. Loving OOT so far

    Would you upgrade this?

    From what I've seen theres not a huge jump from the first gen cores to the second, I'd spend your money on a new graphics card or maybe some cooling to try and squeeze more mhz out of your i7 Also if your comp is seeming slow run some benchmars and try and get a feel of what numbers your build...

    Is there a generally preferred board/manufacturer for Sandybridge?

    I like Gigabyte myself, Asus has a pretty good reputation as well

    So, yeah...Razer can pound sand...

    I like the design of Razers products but the quality doesn't seem up to par. My deathadders left button eventually would not click right and my Lycosa will randomly have keys stuck and or have keys that just won't work until I reconnect it.

    AVP thoughts and impressions

    Game feels like it was thrown together haphazardly. Controls are terrible, animations as well. Whole thing just feels junky.

    Help choose a 40 inch TV for the master bedroom (Plasma, LCD, etc...)

    If you are dead set to get one now the samsung 4081 is really at the top of the heap for performance to price ratio. It has led backlight so the blacks are pretty black. If you can wait till the end of this year though the new 950 will probably be around what the 81 series is now. The 81 is...

    Mega Man 9!!!

    I disagree completely that the game doesn't stand on it's own. More complicated is not always good.

    Remember the first time you played Doom?

    Doom was such an awesome game on every level. My computer could barely run it when I first played it but it still rocked. Going into hell from mars and kicking ass, I really wish they could recapture that feeling with a new Doom game. 3 was pretty cool but still not up to the godliness of the...

    Direct2drive VS. Steam

    D2d isn't bad but steam is just great. Great layout, fast downloads and no clutter. I wish every game was available on steam.

    Best bang for buck Q6600 build critique!

    I'd get a slightly larger psu, 650 might last you through another video card upgrade.

    HTPC vs PS3?

    The PS3 actually puts out a slightly better blu ray image than my pc. I've read it has the best image quality of any Blu ray player and I believe it it does look good.

    Should I trade my 4870 for a gtx280?

    Wait for a newer card. The 4870 is a good card no need to replace it with something slightly faster.

    TF2: Heavy getting achievement upgrade next

    Not all of these new weapons are meant to be obvious "upgrades". Valve themselves said they didn't want to make heavy+medic any more powerful (understandable since they are so powerful already). These new weapons offer some more options for the heavy which is all valve is trying to do.

    HTPC vs PS3?

    Without some tweaking the PS3 seems to put out a slightly nicer Blu Ray image than my 1950xt. Not sure whether it's my video card or what.

    diablo 3 needs a highend system?

    Im pretty sure the neatest effects from the gameplay demo are DX10. If you're not worried about eye candy tho I'm sure it will run on a lowish end system. Might not look spectacular though.

    Best TV for Wii?

    The absolute best would be some kind of 480p tv around 30ish inches. I dont think they made too many of those tho so your next best bet would be a nice 480i tv thats below 32 inches. You don't wanna get anything hd because the upconversion delay is noticeable on some games. If you...

    Red Orchestra

    I find myself coming back to RO even with all these new games out. The iron sight only is really realistic and everything is handled very well. Great game.

    Whatever happened to LED Backlighting on LCD panels?

    I really wish we'd start to see this tech trickle down into our monitors. My Samsung 225bw would be an almost perfect monitor if dark movies looked better.

    PS3, XBox 360 or Wii

    Wii was my choice with all its exclusive AAA content. Only thing that would tempt me to buy a ps3 would be gt5. Blu-Ray is a very nice bonus if you have a good hdtv. 360 really doesn't have any exclusives that get me hot and bothered.

    Developers of UT3 and Crysis are unhappy with PC sales of their games

    I didn't buy crysis because it didn't run very well on my comp. And it's pretty new. I feel like my next computer might run it well.

    Crysis Benchmarks: Performance is Remarkable

    My system is not top of the line (1950XT, E6400 at 2.8) but the game really dissapointed me performance wise. I couldn't find the balance between graphics and framerate that made the game fun. Once you start turning down the rez, putting things on medium, no AA.... The game just looks butt...
