    XBOX360 owner clubhouse, come on in ;)

    So fellow Xbox clubhouse members, I need your help. I recently upgraded to a 1680*1050 monitor. Now, I'm using the Joytech VGA cable. I can set the resolution to 1680*1050, but there's letterboxing. It wont let me change the aspect ratio at 1680*1050. However, if I choose a regular resolution...

    XBOX360 owner clubhouse, come on in ;)

    NXE is kinda...meh. Not too excited for the features. I got lost in all the menus (I'll get used to it soon enough). Avatars are fun to play around with, but not too exciting. The whole "360 as a media center" idea is lost on my cos my PC is right next to it. Need moar games plox.

    The far cry 2 thread!

    I'm still using the G3, which is nice, but weak as crap. I'm thinking of upgrading my assault weapon (main long rifle is still Springfield 1903). Should I spring for the AK, or save for something better? (Only about 16% into the game, have finished 2 weapon shops missions, which I agree are...

    *GTX 260/280 Unofficial TPU! Thread*

    Ah, I should probably update my specs. I'm running the 192 shader one. Lol I tried googling Precision but then I realized I had an EVGA card. I've changed it to 700 core, 1150 mem, and 75% speed. (You're right, it's not that much louder) I'm using the 178 driver set with CUDA support. I'll test...

    [FS] Asus 4850

    I have an Asus 4850 that I need to get rid of. I'm upgrading to a gtx 260, so I don't need this anymore. Shipping is via USPS priority. 4850 Used for a little less than 3 months I don't have retail box, but I still have most if not all the accessories. PM me if and I'll see if I have it...

    Dualbooting Windows for CUDA

    I only have 1 x16 slot on my p35. Don't know how bandwidth hungry CUDA is. EDIT: I'm actually going to try and sell my 4850 instead of my gtx 260, so drivers are no longer the problem. Mods can lock.

    Dualbooting Windows for CUDA

    I'm thinking about picking up a 8800gs or something like that to mess around with CUDA. The thing is I'm running a 4850. I don't want any driver conflictions, so I thought about dualbooting 2 separate OSes, one with ATi drivers, and the other with CUDA drivers. Whenever I want to game I'd swap...

    MGS4 On 360? more fact than rumor at this point..

    I'd really love to play MGS4 without a PS3, but I'm not holding my breath at this point. As pointed out, Bioshock did do the same thing. MGS4 on 360 in 2ish years?

    Zalman vs Xigmatex

    I'm idling at 30ish degrees at 4.0gHz. Granted the chip is an E0, but near ambient is great. Load for me is around 45ish on a fair day (80ish degrees Fahrenheit) Don't forget the mounting backplate. It peels off a few degrees and makes it a whole lot easier to mount. Not to mention it puts less...

    Few Quick Q's for Friend's Build

    UPDATE: Parts have been ordered. We still went with the antec truepower trio. It's a Seasonic OEM, so I'm not too worried. Ram was switched to a 2gb set of ddr2 800 gskills (the red ones) processor and mobo are e8400 and Asus P5q Pro. There was a deal so we went with that, hoping that the Egg...

    Few Quick Q's for Friend's Build

    Those look really nice. Buy.com has good deals on Corsair PSUs too. The thing is, you get 40 off the combo when you buy a trio 650watt and an Antec 300 (the case he's getting). It's kinda suckering him in.

    Few Quick Q's for Friend's Build

    Update time. Okay, the original build was a little too expensive for my friend. We're looking at PSUs, and if you had to, I mean HAD TO pick between these two, which would it be? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817371015...

    As you guys might know, I got lucky with a deal and procured a original, vanilla, Plain Jane GTX260. As much as I would like to keep it, I need the money for other things so I'm contemplating selling it. I would like to know how much I could let this go for. It's still in the shrink wrap. I have...
