    Alan Wake

    Anyone got this game? It's really.... really amazing. The gameplay is awesome and the graphics... oh my god. The lighting at times make several scenes look really photorealistic. More than Crysis. :toast: It's probably the most underrated Xbox game of the year.

    What happens when your computer blows up?

    Title is a little misleading :P I didn't want to make it long. But I was just curious because this seems to be my worst nightmare. What if you build a PC and the power supply zaps your computer taking out a few components with it? What happens? Are you SOL? Does the PSU manufacturer pay for the...

    Phenom II X4 955BE or Phenom II X6 1055T?

    Hey ya'll! I'm gonna build a new compy in about a week or so :toast: but I'm having trouble deciding what CPU I want. It's between a P2X4 and a P2X6 as the title might suggest. Now I'm starting to hate AMD's marketing so much ;) the only reason why I'm attracted to the X6 is because of the price...

    Holy Crap that was scary

I was thinking about either getting a 40GB Intel X-25V or a 64GB Kingston SSDNow V. 80GB Intel is in...

    Hey I've been lookin' into SSDs. Would you guys recommend them? I thought about getting this: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0031X8HG2/?tag=tec06d-20 Or do you think it would just be a money wasted toy? I mean... for that price I could get a 2TB hard drive... lol.

    Power Supplies

    Hey guys. I was wondering if you could rank good PSU companies from the so so and make a list from best to okay. Antec, Seasonic, Corsair, Thermaltake, OCZ, Coolermaster, and Rosewill. I threw Rosewill in there because I've had really good luck with their wireless router (I know it's totally...

    8800GT to 5770?

    Just wonderin' how much of a performance boost I should see. I've also read somewhere that there might be bottlenecking issues (I run a Core 2 Duo E8200 @ 2.66GHz)... though I'm not so sure about that. Just read an old article on CPU scaling with the old Core 2s in the 6xxx range and it seems...
