Re: 6yo boy dies at monster truck show

thats just terrible luck.

As far as lawsuits go..i dont think the family can sue, there's a clause on the back of the ticket or somewhere and it says if you get hurt walk it off. They can always have the media make some noise and get the company(s) to pay up.

Re: PC makes hissing sound under load...

Its not a hiss but more like an 'ssss' sound when the cpu is working or when an app is loading. Maybe its normal but who the hell knows... I read a review a while back on my motherboard and the reviewer noticed the same thing. So lets put this up to a vote. Should I push my cpu to 3150 mhz (350x9) ...

Re: New build

I dont know how 64 bit drivers are now but it seems like most video cards are supported. For your needs i'd go with something like a GeForce GTX 260 or a GeForce 9800, even a 9600GT, something that gives you good value since you said you dont play many games
