    Just upgraded from a X-Fi Titanium (non-hd) which I've had since 08 to a Sound Blaster Z and the difference is very evident, the overall crispness and clarity is pretty astounding.

    Dragunov Gaming Mouse - For the Budget Gamer

    This is a budget gamer mouse that looks pretty decent and is actually quite a solid product for its price. I discovered this at another forum and apparently the base price should only be USD $10.00 At the moment I believe it is only for sale in Asia, the company seems to be Japanese...

    single display gaming

    Interesting, thanks for letting us know. I'm on a 5870 with a single display myself and was considering the 7970 as a replacement but if it still lags at 1080p, I will probably do my best to wait and see what the GTX 680 has to offer.

    7970 and 7950 to arrive in January?

    I know a lot of this is pure speculation but the thought of a 7970 matching the performance of a 6990 sounds awesome. Saving up now for Q1 2012. Further speculation, would a 7970 or 7990 most likely be the same size as a 5870 (my current card) I'm just thinking if I can fit that bad boy in my...

    7970 and 7950 to arrive in January?

    Indeed. I'm planning on gaming on a single monitor set up at 1920x1080 so I'm trying to identify which card would be the best for me running everything maxed out like on BF3 and any other future games. Would a 7970 be good enough or should I just go all out and go with the 7990. My current...

    BF3 Tweaks and Help Thread

    I recommend that once you are in the server of your choice, you alt tab back and close your browser. I'm on Chrome and after I did this, all my issues and chugging went away immediately. Hope this helps.

    BF3 Tweaks and Help Thread

    Need help. My FPS has taken a big hit ever since the maintenance/patch today, dipping to 30fps and chugging bad. Running a HD 5870 on a 2500k. Before today everything was always running smooth about 60fps. Drivers used are 11.10 preview 3. Any idea whats going on here?

    Thoughts on keyboard options?

    Seconding this. I recently picked up my first Filco Majestouch 2 (MX Brown Switches). Best move I've ever made in terms of keyboard purchases. This thing is amazing and responsive. A real joy to type and game on. Never going back to cheapy membrane keyboards again.
