GTX 465 or GTX 470?

Would it be unwise to opt for the GTX 465, when for not much more I could get a 470? What is the % of performance increase with the 470? I've looked at the SLI reviews for the 465 and it seems to perform really really well, and will probably get even better with optimized drivers. What do you guys t...

Re: Female Condom with 'Teeth' to Catch Rapists

I have also thought that this is a horrible idea. The kind of person who commits rape is also capable of murder, as many rape cases do end in the woman being murdered.

This could in some cases worsen the situation.

Give them handguns for self defense.

Re: Should McChrystal have been fired?

What I heard is that McCrystal didn't say the things everyone is talking about, it was actually his aides who made the remarks. And even then, what they said wasn't anything worth making him resign over. Can't say I blame him for resigning though, I wouldn't want to have to wade through all that bul...

Re: help troubleshooting

Didn't realize that Frys was that picky. Half of their "open box" items look like they're a year old. Bingo with the air. In Houston it's not that big a problem, it's always humid as hell. When I would travel up north, especially in the winter, I would shock myself every time I got out of the freak...

Re: help troubleshooting

Why not take it back to Frys? I'm already past 15 days. They've got a really short return period for motherboards and processors. Understandable, because a LOT of people "fry" those parts with ESD (electrostatic discharge). You would be surprised how many people are oblivious to the fact that you c...

Re: So I'm Watching G4TV...

All I think of when people talk about G4TV is how they ruined Tech TV. :(

Your thoughts on the flotilla incident?

All this international hatred towards Israel is pretty sickening. They made a horrible mistake, but the whole country shouldn't be condemned for it. I've heard such horrible things being said about Israel, it's disgusting.

What are everyones thoughts on it?

We get tons of hummingbirds around here, and many of them do sit and drink, even in nice weather :)

Re: help troubleshooting

if you have another PSU I'd test it in the system. If you get the same problem then you'll be even more assured it's not the PSU. Also, you should try a single stick of RAM, and switch between RAM sticks to eliminate RAM as the culprit. I just had to replace my mobo today, my old one died a couple w...

Re: EVGA and Galaxy GeForce GTX 465 SLI Video Card Review

The Galaxy casing looks really cool.

I was really excited for these cards until I heard about them disabling things on the card to make them work. Aren't they basically a GTX 470 with some things disabled?
