  1. S - Zotac GTX 980ti 546.57 +FS after Code + waived return shipping

    I used that promo code and got a fury X for 540 after the 50 off and 9 from using a debit card. The debit thing isn't sketchy as retailers pay less in fees when a consumer uses a debit card. Although depending on the CC you may get purchase protections so YMMV on that.

    Half Of All Software In Brazil Is Pirated

    I've been there and this is very very true. I my old company had an office down there which I visited on several occasions. They have a huge import taxes to try and promote in-country manufacturing and development so everything imported has massive taxes sometimes approaching 100%.

    Vandalism Shut Down Internet, Cellphone, Telephone Service Across Arizona

    I live in northern Arizona and it sucked. ALL of the conventional ISPs up here apparently run through the single fiber conduit. The only thing that was working was Verizon Wireless service. Banks closed and even the regional 911 center shut down forcing all 911 to failover to the backup POTS...

    [H]ot: WD Purple 2TB $79.99 @ egg with code

    Way back in the day you could user a application to change the TLER on drives but that was taken away and then they started producing the drives with firmware customized for specific uses. In today's market having these drives marketing in this manner makes it easier for less tech savy people...

    From Sapphire 7950 Vapor-X 3gb to 780 Ti or R9 290x?

    The 290X is roughly 10%-20% faster depending on the game. You can overclock your 290 and get fairly close to a stock 290X but you can't "unlock" a 290. Your old crossfire setup is going to outperform a single 290 setup. I have a pair of 6970s and I've been on the fence about a 290x or a...

    How moveable are hyper-v vm's? and other vm questions

    Super easy to move Hyper-V VMs around to different systems. I would just use VHDx and not pass-through disks. It's a pain in the ass if you decide to move the VM. Gives you more flexibility on the storage if you put it in a VHDX if you decided to user a RAID or something on the backend in the...

    MSI Radeon R9 290X GAMING 4G Video Card Review @ [H]

    I hope the price comes down on this at 649 it's just not worth it. I'm in the market for a new card and I was hoping to get one of these MSI cards but not that this price point. The MSI 290 Gaming model is looking a lot better at $469. I think this card at 569 would be a better price point...

    R9 290 Eyefinity benchmarks

    Select Storage Device for ESXi install

    Sounds like it didn't load the driver for your storage sub-system. Double-check your hardware is on the compatible list. Otherwise you could go with Hyper-V 2012. Much more flexible in terms of hardware support.

    7970 CrossfireX Eyefinity issues?

    run ATIman driver cleaner and remove your driver and reinstall everything. Then use the disable ULPS option. You may also want to set it to AFR friendly. I was having all kinds of issues after adding a second 6970. Those steps cleared up my problems.
