Re: GeForce GTX 275 Now Available in North America

After a day, I can conclude that it is a very nice card. It runs at about 85C at full load and managed to play Crysis Warhead on enthusiast settings (no AA, 1680x1050). My last card was an ATI, and I think I'm going to be buying more nVidia products in the future. If anybody wants specific details, ...

Re: WHICH GAME DO I BUY!

Good choice picking Far Cry 2. It's a very nice game, aside from the large amount of repetition that eventually occurs. My second pick would have been Crysis Warhead. It's a short game, but the gameplay is better than the first Crysis (I could only play it for 30 minutes, while I ended up beating Wa...

I got that deal too. I also managed to score a bag of crap two woot-offs ago, and they sure send some random crap.

Re: Woot-off today!

It showed up while I was at a meeting. >.<

To make things worse, they did another bag of crap on April Fools and I checked the site at 1:05 (aka 5 minutes too late).

They'll build a very nice custom PC for you. My computer was originally from Cyber Power, but I've since replaced all components by myself.

Re: Gainward 4850 512 MB Problem

I doubt it's your power supply, because I used to have a similar system and never any problems. All I can think of is flashing your bios.

Re: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 275 Versus ATI Radeon HD 4890

Great amount of test cases. I was sold on the 4890, but the 275 looks pretty good. I do want a new graphics card, but I haven't determined any winner thanks to this review.

Re: GPU Folding Performance Chart

nVidia's cards might be better at folding, but it doesn't mean that they're better at video performance. So, while folding is nice and all, you should probably buy a graphics card based on what it is designed for (GRAPHICS).

Re: HR 833 - Federal Reserve System Changes

Seriously, Dr. Paul wants to kill the FED? They're just a scapegoat at this point and are hardly responsible for the credit crisis. While imperfect, we haven't had a better tool for managing inflation over the years and to completely repeal the system would definitely hurt us over the course of time...

Re: My mouse broke today...

What is the warranty on the OCZ mouse... that is a recent one. 1 year, and it broke after 4 months. I'll end up returning it assuming they don't require the original box, or really anything else but the mouse (very doubtful). Kind of losing my faith in OCZ, because of all the things I've bought on ...

Re: OnLive- interesting

The video game publishers really, really want it to work, because it'd mostly eliminate piracy. The only problem is that they're ignoring a lot of practical problems and already claim that have a product that far exceeds current technology on so many levels. Great article: http://www.eurogamer.net/a...

Re: The Crisis of Credit Explained

A bank is in business to make loans, and you would certainly hope that the banks realize that there is no such thing as a guaranteed return. They ignored the background check, the blood stains on her shirt, and sold, at a discounted price, the crazy wife a bazooka. And suddenly, we're surprised whe...
