    Borderlands GOTY $7.50 on Steam for a few more hours

    Get it while you can. My copy is dling now. Darn good FPSRPG game, can call it an MO but not an MMO as there is no big server to play on. Best value on Steam in a long time. Up there with BFBC2 for about $5.50 last Christmas.

    Extremely low cost cooling method

    Take the side door off and put a big fan on high pointing into the case. Brought my temps down several degrees, 10C-20C. My GTX 470s generate massive heat so this was a lifesaver and way cheaper than investing in water cooling. Now my GPU temps rarely get into the 80s and I was over 100C...

    All, I got a new GTX 470 and came to found out belatedly it came with one PCI-e 2.0 6 pin connector. The one that came with it uses two molex to one 6 pin plug. The other molex to 6 pin connector is an older one I have that has one molex to the 6 pin plug. I am getting enough juice to my...

    Halo 3 PC is "in development"!

    I was playing Halo 2 PC online when a team "bungie .net staff" member told me that Halo 3 PC is under development. He wasn't on the development team, so he didn't give me an ETA but did confirm it is being made! This is so awesome, I can't wait!
