    Offworld Trading Company 50% Off $19.99 Steam

    I wouldn't say this is super hot, but if you liked MULE, this might fit the bill. I'm very addicted to the game. Early Access & I guess Mohawk/Stardock are still a few months off until the retail release. Too me, it's worth a $20.00. Some might not agree. Just thought I would throw it our...

    Golden Ear Aon 3's Amazing!

    I picked up a pair of these while I bought a 4K Sony 55" TV (850C) They were too expensive to buy new. But the salesperson said "I'll let you have then for $250.00 for the store demo" I couldn't resist. I ask if I didn't like them @ home if I could return them. He said "no problem" They're in...

    Asus Strix R390X Coil Whine

    Hi All: I've had this GPU for about 6+ weeks. Love it as it rips thru all of my games @ 2580x1440 res. on my BenQ 32" display. I noticed about 2 weeks ago a slight coil whine.

    Damn Microsoft & the Windows 10 Update Crap!

    I just built a new rig (Windows 7) & I knew not to allow MS to install KB3035583 update. It worked for 3 days & then I noticed I has some more updates yesterday. There was no KB3035583 in those new updates. Then this morning I boot-up my computer & there's that damn WIN10 icon in my tray. Did...
