*chuckle* Well, I'd be up for playing in the HL2:DM pickup tournament but seeing as the day will be BEan's I might have to think twice about it. After all, playing Duke Nukem via IPX/SPX is still fun!

see you guys there!

Bluetooth and the Treo650

While finding a good BT headset for a mobile phone can be hit or miss no other BT enabled phone that I've owned is as picky as the Treo. Bottom line with the Treo is if you want BT to work right you pretty much have to purchase a headset which is on their approved/compatible list. All of it's little...

Woot!

I plan on attending and enjoying whatever there is to play. As for CS:1.6 I also don't really care for the game and won't spend the extra $$$ to play in the tourney... As a suggestion why not run an "un-official" CS:S tournament? Based on what I've read here and on Warfactory/Laclede Lan's forums th...

I worked out the "bugs" in the install and will be posting the pics and a mini review by the end of the week. I'd have done so sooner but my g/f's b-day was this weekend and I'm still hung over... ;)

Hermmmmm....

*chuckle* okay, maybe you DFI fanboys are right - I've started having problems restarting the computer. The machine boots fine, loads windows fine, will hard reset fine but will NOT reboot or boot after a successful MS Windows shutdown without powercycling the PSU. The POST code halts on #50. The ne...

Seems to be inline with most of the ATI Radeon benchmarks. Will try again
over the weekend with some tweaking and OC'ing

3dMark 2001SE score was in the low 22K range when tested last night. Am sure with a bit of tweaking here and there (and not running it while moving several hundred Gigs of data from one PC to the other) I can get it a bit higher. *chuckle* give me two days and I'll have all kinds of benchmark graphics

The system is built. One small word on RAID arrays - you're going to need an actual floppy drive if you want to create the array and install the OS to it. I spent about 3 hours last night trying to get the system to boot from a CD and read the RAID drivers from a USB Floppy. Everytime the system wou...

audiophile - the upgrade set me back about 2k. More than I wanted to spend but I haven't done a full system update in a while and am thinking this will last me for a bit ;) I'll leave the Bush comment alone as suggested capper - I agree that there are many good boards out there but I'm something of ...

ya... the tax man was kind to me this year but I already know he won't be next year. Gotta spend it while I have it or I'll just piss it away on beer, women and other things which won't sing me to sleep with the sound of humming case fans ;) I'll take some photos of the MB, CPU, HSF and Hard drives ...

infinitevalence - Thanks for the advice on the PSU - I'll see if I can find one locally. Am in too much of a hurry to get the system built (and too broke after buying all the rest of the hardware) to buy it online and have it here by friday. Ya, I realized after the order shipped and it was too late...

All those High 3DMark scores at Warfactory...

...prompted me to buy a whole mess of new hardware. I spent a portion of Monday surfing through Newegg's inventory, saved everything to a wish list which I later decided was as good a use for what remains of my tax return as anything else... Of course the wish list dropped my selection of Powersupp...

Great LAN party!

I wanted to thank the crew here at LegitReviews as well as the team at Warfactory for putting together an awesome event. As I wandered around and looked to see what people were playing I saw lots of CS:Source action, Call of Duty fragging and a host of other games going on. If it could be played by ...
