    HSF choice for eVGA 680i board

    I'm finalizing my build list for my upcoming build, but one thing's got me pulling my hair out. From what I'm reading, it's pretty hard to pick a HSF for this board. Either the microtransisters on the bottom create a problem or the north bridge HS create a problem. I've been eying the Tuniq...

    Xb360 as a network media machine...

    Anyone else done this themselves? I didn't want to move my speaker system to the TV because there wasn't really a cheap way to get my music on my computer to the receiver at the TV. The first day I got my Xb360, I got it all networked up and have it sharing the media with my computer. Came...

    In case no one posted about it - PC wireless adapter

    So I was at work today and our MS rep came in with a new promo sheet for our product binder. What do I see on it? A wireless adapter which attaches to the PC via USB which supports the 360 wireless controllers, upcoming wireless headset, and upcoming wireless wheel. I was overjoyed. But he said...

    Time lets some Wii details slip

    Source: http://www.gametab.com/news/554859/ The thought of a real tennis game just excites the crap out of me. Not only that, I pretty much feel forced to buy Twilight Princess to get a piece of the hot action.

    Simple question... 3rd party 360 pads on PC...

    So with Oblivion due out in less than 3 weeks, I've come to the conclusion that getting a 360 gamepad for my PC has come to it's due time. Now, Gamestop is running a sale on their/Pelican's 360 controller. Has anyone used a 3rd party with their PC? I'd guess it works being that it's probably the...

    Black

    Well, I've gotten through three missions so far, and dang am I dissapointed. First off, the checkpoint system is crap. It takes way too long to hit a checkpoint and there's typically only one per level. Personally, I think there needs to be 2-4 checkpoints per level, but maybe thats just me...

    Decent wireless speakers in the future?!

    Mark Schifter over at av123 made a pretty hefty comment about an upcoming product: I'm excited to hear more about this. Perhaps wireless speakers will become as good as, or better in some aspects, than their wired variants.

    360 Shortage - Who's on the rawest end?

    The consumer or the retailer? I work at a local game store. I've been hearing a lot about the shortage of systems lately, mainly to brace for impact. We were recently told we were getting a very, very small amount of systems. We've already told some customers about the issue, and it's not...

    A-B to Bi-Amplifi?

    I have an Onkyo TX-SR302 receiver. I am planning on buying a set of Fluance speakers this holiday season, and was curious if the a-b channels allow you to bi-amplifi the front speakers. I know it's probably not the case, but I thought I'd ask before considering some rack-amps to bi-amplifi.

    In the market for some better cans...

    Setting digital audio straight...

    Alright, my parents just purchased me an Onkyo TX-SR302 5.1 receiver for one of my graduation presents. As I understand it, using a digital connection would benefit me because it would rely on the receiver to process the sound instead of the sound card itself. Do I have this right? Also, would...
