    Is this HTPC Overkill?

    Christ, that's a waste of money. You're main problem is that you're trying to use a 360 as a steaming device and then trying to extrapolate from that what you need in an HTPC to actually get the job done. The system you have now, the P4 sucks when it comes to this stuff. What's happening is...

    Apple Blames Everyone Else For High Australian Prices

    All I can say is wow. You'd think there would be more informed people around here.... It's the same reason why prices for the same thing are higher around the world. Do you think the Japanese gamers like paying $80 for video games? How about someone looking to get a new video card in Germany...

    I threw in some cash. Hopefully you guys get it off the ground. I would love to have this case (I'm currently back to using mATX)

    Skipping the receiver -- Am I going to regret this?

    This. PCs are designed for audio capture and not regular audio playback. You want to make this as easy as possible and running everything through the PC will require you to setup some kind of capture software each time for both audio and video depending on your source and that doesn't even take...

    NCASE M1: a crowdfunded Mini-ITX case (updates in first post)

    Personally, I'd like to see some enthusiast DTX boards that also use stacked sodimm slots instead of the regular stuff. There's some plenty fast sodimm memory out there with very little markup over the regular desktop and it it's stacked it could lead to slightly smaller room to work with.

    Silverstone vs nMediaPC for HTPC?

    Out of those two cases, I'd go with the Silverstone. If considering other cases then, I still might pick the Silverstone but I do have a few that come to mind.

    help finding single slot GTX 650 ti

    There is no such thing. Nvidia has let their partners decide how to make the 650's and they decided to make the Ti pin compatible with the 650's PCB. The point is is that you won't find a retail version of the reference card since they were only made to show off to their partners and for...

    help finding single slot GTX 650 ti

    I've got an oldish Thermalright V1 Ultra that I was planning on using for my 650 Ti. Cut the PCI bracket to a single slot and trim down the fins on the Ultra just a tad to make it a single slot. I was planning on doing that but I needed a card with the PCIe plug facing up and the only 2gig card...

    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 Ti

    I've got one and I have it OCed to a stable 1176 on the GPU and 1601 on the mem side. At that speed it beats my friend's 470GTX in pretty much any game I've tried it with. It seems to be a little bit behind another friend's 7850 as well. The 7850 is clearly faster but the Ti handles it's self...

    343 Industries Cracks Down on Halo 4 Sexism

    I don't understand how this is a bad thing at all. These people talk about gaming, competition and all that being the only thing that really matters and yet they're bitching and moaning over a new policy that comes down to "don't be a douche." Seriously?

    343 Industries Cracks Down on Halo 4 Sexism

    Yeah. Lets just pretend this isn't an issue. Let's do that and reinforce the stereotype that gamers are all just misogynistic morons. That'll be just GREAT for progressing the idea that games are also a form of art and story telling on top of alienating over 3 billion people on this planet...

    CPU decision Relevant to your interests. For me, I just rebuilt my HTPC with a slightly older Sandy Bridge Pentium G620 (I think that's it) but only cause I got everything super cheap (CPU, H77 mobo and 4 gigs DDR3 1600) for like $110...

    A few friends of mine play online and even they find Live to be an offense wasteland of morons. To put this into perspective, we will stand around (we work together too) work and make racist, sexist, homophobic remarks to each other about each other. It's a lot of fun but even they would...

    Clearly, the ones that are pissed off most about this kind of stuff are always railing against "feminist that!" "Feminist this!" tend to be the kinds of assholes that make things like this necessary in the first place. lol

    1080p Crysis2, i3 IVB, HTPC, what GPU?

    I'm using a max OCed 650 Ti (I got it for the Assassin's Creed 3 bundle) and I can game at 1080p max settings in most games. I'm pretty happy with it.

    Server options and opinions please

    That's a lot easier to do then an HTPC media server. All you need to do is put the drives/folders as shares and then to set them up to connect from the HTPC and elsewhere. I'd suggest getting a nice, cheap SSD for the HTPC too.

    best buy $100 Video card

    While it's a little more then a 7770, I just got a 650 TI today mostly cause of the AC3 bundle and the need for a cheap video, short video card. I really like it so far but long term is for me to get a 7950 in a couple of weeks and use this in a lower spec gaming rig.

    Windows 8

    Which is why I'm waiting for SP1 before even bothering with Win8. I don't like Metro on the desktop, I see how useful it can be for an HTPC but MS hasn't done shit yet to bring out that potential.

    Windows 8

    I was hoping MS would have broken up WMC like that when they first showed off Metro but nope. They see no reason to do anything like that but instead to let WMC die off.

    Ceton to discontinue network tuner ability in Windows 8?

    This sounds like an issue with Win 8. The only reason we had this feature in the first place was cause MS made hooks for it in MC and then let devs develop it. That, and, MS didn't release 8MC for testing like this until the other day.

    NCASE M1: a crowdfunded Mini-ITX case (updates in first post)

    I guess I'm the only one who would rather get a case like this, mount two 2.5 SSDs (either in the space reserved for the 3.5 drive or, if there's enough space, behind the mobo somehow) and then mount an external dual 120/140 Rad on the top? If it had the top from one of the previous tops...

    Windows 8

    IF I EVER upgrade to 8 it will be a year after it's release. I just don't see anything worth compelling in Win8. I have also moved away from WMC, as much as I hate that, and I will be using Media Portal (maybe XMBC, maybe).
