    Why is this HD7970 SOOO Expensive??

    There have been some websites that would charge 3-7 times the MSRP of items when I've shopped around online.

    Windows 7 x64 installation doesnt recognise Vertex 4

    You have the latest firmware available. I was going to tell you to post in the OCZ forum, but you already have. However, you should update your system info as it says you're using an ASUS MB and other things that don't match what you just said. I would try to install it to the sata 2 port...

    Fraud involving a video game distributor?

    When will your pre-order be available? Don't expect an equitable reply instantly. I would wait at least one full business day after you made the purchase for it to show up for them. Check the policies of your bank for fraud claims and time limits on making claims. Compare that to...

    Looking to buy my first SSD, how do I install games on my HDD if I have Steam on SSD?

    I would just install steam on the drive with large enough capacity for steam and all games. You won't lose any noticeable performance from it.

    Who Has The Best PC

    Who Has The Best PC

    I don't play Second Life. No one I know does. I don't know anyone with a $1200 HP PC. Most people buy HP PCs because they are cheap. I only build from parts and never purchase from companies like Dell or HP or Acer. I don't understand the lag reference and I'm not entirely sure what you are...

    Who Has The Best PC

    People often give me random amounts of money to build PC's for them. The first question I always ask is, "what do you intend to do with your PC?" Then I build it and everyone is always content or impressed. So, having all of the best hardware does not matter, it's how you use it.

    Building a high end gaming system

    Use an SSD for increased speed. I know price might be an issue here. With fewer available GB, the SSD will just need to be managed for storage space. Other than that, any recommendation would be of personal preference.

    'I'm a little worried about the direction gaming is going'

    I only play them when my friends encourage me to gift them. I do it as a charity/ability to gift. It doesn't piss me off, it just makes me like other games more.
