    Gamdias ACHILLES P1 L Gaming Chair Review @ [H]

    I have always hated the included Casters, Then while surfing Amazon, I found these roller blade wheels....They are life changing...I mean no kidding, the chair moves so much smoother and it does not mark a hardwood floor, so you can get rid of the stupid floor mat...Love these. However 30 bucks...

    EVGA Quietly Changes Warranty Policy

    I get what you are saying, I don't keep all my receipts, But if I spend 500 to 700 on anything ( gtx1080). YES, I do keep the receipt....No disrespect meant...It just seems like common sense to me. I am not wealthy and that is a sizable amount of green to not keep a record.....Just Sayin. Also...

    New Alienware 7.1 Surround Wireless Gaming Headset - AW988

    I am very interested in how these sound and if they are comfortable, looking forward to the full review, the "pneumatic" headband looks comfortable, but I am worried it will be hot on the head, curious how it feels. Thanks for doing the review Kyle.

    Unreal is 20 Years Old

    I installed the game from GOG and then patched it with the 227i patch.....Shocked to see it will let me play it at 3440x1440....Looks pretty good and it is as much fun as I remember from the old days. I have been playing it for 2 days now. There are not that many old games that would hold my...

    Foxconn Will Drain Lake Michigan to Make LCD Screens

    Wow!!! I am not an environmentalist by any means....But Geez!!! This looks fricken shady to me. I grew up in Michigan and went Salmon fishing in lake Michigan,They actually changed the Wetland laws to push this through.... I would hate to see this poison that lake.

    I realize that you have stated Best buy has nothing but crap, but have you tried the Logitech G910 is full size, has very nice mechanical switches and several nice features as well as what I consider to be a high quality feel. It is a gaming keyboard, and due to that it does have...

    I felt compelled to post this

    I used to have all 3 also...Unfortunately, like many others here, I can't justify retro ( slower) gaming systems...I have either thrown them out or given them away...Doesn't mean that I don't remember how cool it was to game with them when they were cutting edge.

    Nest or Ecobee for new home?

    OK, so I was curious and did some reading on both of those apps, IFTTT looks pretty slick ! I will have to set it up and try it out. If this works and enables geofencing, then it will eliminate the Ecobee's only short coming. This is what I love about this place, I wanted to share my experience...

    Nest or Ecobee for new home?

    The electric heating doesn't make any real difference, however, you will have to hook it up as primary and aux heating ( multi stage). The heat pump is the 1st stage and the heat strips ( aux heat ), are the 2nd stage. Make sure you read up on the connections before you hook it up. It is not...

    I have been an HVAC tech for 29 years, I have tried all 3, I had 3 nests fail ,the last one failed and would bring the heat and a/c condensor on at the same time in the winter, lucky I was home or it could have killed the a/c unit.Also the temp swings always made you feel too hot and then 10...

    Brutal Legend and MDK Are Free for a Limited Time

    I used to love MDK and MDK2, thks for the link, can't get it to run at a higher res though, even after using NGlide....Might have to try running it in a Dos box. Funny, in the old days I would've figured it out by now, but I will admit to being spoiled by gaming on modern versions of...

    If you look closely at all the pics , it looks to me like the pic of it mounted on the motherboard shows fins instead of pins....seems a bit inconsistent.

    Steam: how many hours?

    Don't do it! I told my wife about a friend who plays about 100 to 120 hrs every 2 weeks, her response was "OMG that is a ridiculous waste of time". Then she asked me how many hours I played, I responded with " around 10 hrs." I assumed that would be a safe number......Nooooo, it was not...

    Curved Monitor Worth It ?

    I love mine, but it is an ultra wide 34" and I only use it for gaming...As dr.stevil said, The lines do appear straight. So it can work for regular use. I am just not sure it would be much of a benefit if it were in standard 16:9 format. In UW, the monitor gets pretty long and the curve helps...

    Forza Motorsport 7 4K Launch Trailer

    Same as Forza 21:9 ultra wide resolutions...I hope this is only for the demo, or I am out...Hate black bars! Odd...Just looked at an article that says it will have ultra wide support.... So there is still hope that it is because of the demo.

    Ok....Dumb question....I have played Forza 6 Apex and the PC version had no multiplayer. Does anyone know if this will be the same ? I have looked at the description on the MS store and it only refers to Xbox live subscription.
