    Lord of the Rings: War in the North, $5 PC, Activates on Steam

    Oh dammit, saw this one too late. It looked really cool when it first came out, but I rarely buy games full price, so I was going to wait. Maybe next time!

    Rosewill Mechanical Keyboard | $64

    I ordered a brown before the price went up $10. The speaker I could care less about (really, just leave it out and save yourself a dollar in shipping, I DON'T WAN'T IT) but I was finding it really difficult to pass up on a mechanical keyboard (with brown switches, at that) for $65 shipped...

    Razer Nostromo Gaming Keypad $40 Refurb @Woot

    See, the thumbstick would be GREAT for moving vs. WASD in something like an MMO; WASD typically needs at least a finger or two dedicated for just moving, while you're having to stretch out the rest of your fingers to hit whatever skills you need. If you can use solely one finger to move (your...

    Warm: Seasonic X650 PSU for $110 at Newegg

    Link-fu over to the 'egg with promo code: EMCYTZT1804. This same PSU has been on sale in the past at $100, and the bigger brother (X750) has been as low as $110; but if you're looking for a pretty silent, highly-rated PSU right now, this isn't a bad deal. Sure, you can probably get a higher...

    Steam Daily Deal - Driver: San Fransisco

    This looks fun! I'll debate it while I study tonight...

    Rosewill RK-9000 mechanical keyboard and webcam $63.99

    I probably would have jumped on the Browns had they come with the webcam, which, oddly, is something I'd actually be using. But since it doesn't, and they're $87, and it's not Tenkeyless (I really want to use it that way now that I've got my desk set up differently), I'm in the "pass" category...

    $37.99 xbox wireless controller for windows + FS @ Egg

    This is the lowest price I've seen for a controller and receiver in, uh, forever. That said, I don't sit that far away from my PC, at all, but I don't want to have to deal with the wire so I'm juuuuuust almost willing to pull the trigger on this.

    Seasonic X750 Gold $109.99

    They did this for me, too! I couldn't seem to find the 6-pin connectors to go to my new (at the time, and yet still current) video card, and honestly I don't know if my 520HX came with them. I'm pretty sure it did, though, and I just couldn't find them. In any case, a quick e-mail to Corsair...

    NZXT Switch 810 (white) $135.99 FS @ amazon

    Link to Newegg video review. The whole thing's good, but the front panel comes off at around 1:14 and reveals a fan; it looks like it pulls in air around the front panel thing and brings it into the case.

    Seasonic X750 Gold $109.99

    Decent, maybe? I'm not entirely sure. I can't find a review of that one on jonnyguru. But against the Seasonic, the PCP&C isn't modular (at all), and "only" comes with silver efficiency rather than gold. The latter isn't so much of a big deal, but for me, the former would be: I just can't do...

    Seasonic X750 Gold $109.99

    That's...what she said? On topic, mine came in a gigantic box. I'm waiting until Monday, just in case Newegg puts the X850 on sale, and I'll sell this and grab that one. Maybe. Then again, though, I'm probably never going to run a game on more than one monitor (though multiples for general...

    Seasonic X750 Gold $109.99

    Actually, thinking about it, if the X850 goes on sale next week, I'll probably just buy it and turn around and sell this X750. I doubt it'll go on sale, but hey, whatevs. I can run on an HX520 for a while longer, I suppose...besides, the other parts haven't gotten to my door yet and this comes...

    Seasonic X750 Gold $109.99

    Playing around with Phaedrus' Quick'n'Dirty PSU calculator lets me load a 2500k at 40% overclock and two GTX580's in SLI (OC'd, no voltage) and reccomends this PSU. Also, JonnyGuru gives it a 9.5. I'm glad the X650 went out of stock, but I'm going to laugh if the X850 goes on sale next week at...

    27" IPS 2560x1440 monitor~90hz <$400 FS

    Depending on how this monitor reviews, I would *have* to be in on one. Those listed specs are RIDICULOUS.

    Dell 24" 1920x1200 IPS - $299

    How does this compare to the Viewsonic VP2365-LED? The Viewsonic's panel is also IPS, but I think it may be true 8-bit. I don't do graphic design work, but still, you know...e-peen? This has that nice x1200 vertical resolution, too.

    [H]ot? CORSAIR DDR3 16GB 1333MHz (4X4GB) $52.99 AR

    DDR3 speed when overclocking something like a 2500k doesn't matter all that much...right? I kinda want 16 GB, and this is a good price. If the jump to 1600 MHz does make a difference, I'll probably just hop on a pair of 2x4 GBs and call it a day.

    Microcenter B&M, 2550k for $160 after facebook coupon

    On page 27 of their online ad thing, it mentions saving $50 with the purchase of a 2600k with the motherboards shown on that page. For the 2500k, it seems only a few work (like the Asus P8Z68-V LX), as the combo price for that board with the 2500k in cart gets brought down to the $70 mark...

    My order from Micca was a D3 DAC, as they've said; I've already set up the return, since I don't really have a use for this.

    Fiio E9 Headphone Amp - $28 +freeshipping (

    I had looked around for headphone amps in the past (right about when I got my HD280 Pro's), and couldn't find any in my budget range. But for $28... Also, this has a 1/8" and 1/4" jack so I can choose to use either the 280's or the 555's without having to use a converter AND it's also an...

    The Greatest Video Game Music - London Philharmonic MP3 Download $2 @ amazon

    Woulda' been cool to hear CivIV's opening orchestralized. (That's a word now, I swear.) Instrumentalized? Whatever. But on the whole, a pretty good album. I was cracking huge grins while driving when the Zelda theme came up; same with Mario and Tetris. :3

    Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium HD Sound Card $47.99 @ BB

    Question: there looks to be something like an IDE port on the non-input end of this card. I'm guessing this is to hook up to some of their I/O drives they have with some other bundles? ... Might it be possible to hook up an older i/o bay/drive thingy to it?

    Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium HD Sound Card $47.99 @ BB

    I got mine like this, but they said that the price tag hadn't been updated and that it wasn't a clearance item. I still got it for the $47.99, though, as it had that tag valid through the 15th. I almost thought I wasn't going to get it. ><

    Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium HD Sound Card $47.99 @ BB

    How do you guys use this sorta thing with both speakers *and* headphones? As in, do most of you have a headphone jack on one of your monitors? I know there's a speakers with a footpod with volume control and the headphone/mic jack, but I'm using an old X-Fi Fatality that has a front panel for...

    Corsair H60 CPU Watercooling System $48.74 after promo & $15 MIR @ NE

    Corsair's pretty damn awesome with their customer support: I once couldn't find the right cable in the bag and I had it within a week of contacting them. Sweet.

    The Router Recommendations Thread (Consumer)

    I nabbed an Asus RT-N56U based on this thread and possible DD-WRT in the future. I've used their RT-N16 in the past, and found the DD-WRT on it much easier to move around on; though, the default GUI for Asus' firmware isn't bad either. So now I have a question: I currently have another Asus...

    Linksys Refurbished E4200 $110

    Where's the RT-n16 for $65? I love that thing and might need another one here soon. Ah, it's over here. Unless...unless this E4200 is loads better, that is.

    Logitech G9x $49.99 FS @ Egg + free Star Trek game

    My palm tends to get more sweaty when using the G500, but oddly, this also depends on the mousepad I'm using. I think. Anyway. There's an additional thumb button on the G500. The middle mouse button isn't so difficult to click. Though I like the smaller size of the G9x better, the above two...

    Batman Arkham Asylum GOTY $7.50 STEAM: Slickdeals Post

    I didn't have any problems with it. I got into grooves with the modifier keys on some of the challenge maps. It doesn't hinder the gameplay, but, I'll admit, it's probably better with a (the?) controller.

    Logitech Gaming Keyboard G510 (Dented Box) $78 + Free Shipping

    For anyone with reservations about Logitech's dented box stuff ( there anyone left, really?): quite a number of us here have ordered dented boxes and it came at a slightly damaged boxed on the outside (mine had a small scratch mark, surface deep) and a brand new product inside.

    amazon prime - rift collectors edition - 19.99

    It's the smaller/cheaper one; I just measured the one in the box. It has some Rift-y art on it, if you were wondering. I didn't bench the 8gig. It's a thumb drive. Whoopee! It isn't a bad game, by any means. The class system is a bit different from other MMO's (read: WoW), but it's still...

    [warm] Antec 900 @ newegg $60 AC/AR/FS

    Though I find the size workable (everything's a bit close), there is no cable management. Nothing like you'd see on the fancier cases today, with holes in the backplate and convenient places to hide cables. No dust filters isn't a big deal to me, as I'll vaccuum mine out, but that's very much...

    Steam Summer Sale 2011

    I felt the combat was much better than the first. The story didn't seem to have been as involved (I was far less interested in the middle part of the game), but it was still a fun game to play.

    Steam Summer Sale 2011

    You "only" need be connected to the internet when you first start it up, to clarify; it's been changed from the "always on or we'll kick you out of game" shenanigans that they had it first. Not as bad, but not necessarily ideal. As far as M&B, Warband is everything the vanilla is with added...

    Logitech G500 Dented Box - $35

    Reporting in: mine arrived, seals unbroken; on the back left side of the box, there seems to be a bit of a scuff where the cardboard looks like it was smushed together over about 1/4" in length and about an inch in height. ...that's the only area of the box that's dented. First impressions...

    Corsair SP2500 2.1 PC Speakers $152 AR at Amazon

    Corsair seems to slowly be expanding into every part of the computer, putting out high quality stuff (though you've got to pay for it; I personally don't mind). Or is this old news and I'm just late to the party? On topic, anyway, these speakers look slick. Maybe a bit big, but if they put...

    Logitech G500 Dented Box - $35

    Kinda wanna get this. Currently using a G9x, came from an MX518. I'm not sure if I have a preference for either style, the claw or the palm. I guess this'll make my decision. Thanks for the heads up!

    STEAM: DC Universe Online

    Too much for me to try it out. It looked cool, but I haven't heard a whole lot of buzz about it since it came out. Maybe I'm wrong? ...yes.. Looks like stardard MMO fees.
