Yeah, I think that Fox is testing the waters with the very fast turn-around TV-to-DVD... I saw it on the shelf... 4 eps for $10 is not bad... for anyone who missed the show(s), and it's a great "teaser" for the impulse buyer. But, I do hope that this doesn't become a habit... And, no matter what you...

I'd go with a beefy Seagate HD myself... and avoid anything Maxtor ;) Good luck!

If your onboard sound is ok for you, then for sure an upgrade from an X850 to a X1900 is the way to go :finga: (and it's AIW!)

Cool idea, but it's just not my cup o' tea... I prefer a sleek & simple look myself. Still, it's a great accomplishment, kudos to the modder 8)

Wow, that is some impressive hardware, but at that weight, I'd have to pass as well... will you be running some tests/benches with it?

Yep, it would appear that the Wii has won this holiday season. It is so hard to find right now, unlike the PS3... of which you can find a few on retails shelves right now. I love my PS2 & PSP, but the PS3 has some catching up to do :?

I must have missed this thread... I got the last Wii at my Zellers on launch day :) I bought Zelda with it, and received an additional Wii-mote, Nunchuk & Classic Controller for Christmas :) and I love my Wii! The possibilities of the control scheme are great! I was initially worried about game manu...

I'd go with a G80 series to be future-proof, and if you're planning on building in March, hopefully by then the next G80 cards will have been released and you will have more choice to make your video card decision ;)

I love my Seagate HD's and was horrified to hear of this news... until I read that Seagate wil be treating the Maxtor line as their lower end HD's (where they belong). I've owned 2 Maxtor's and both died on me within 6 months... whereas I've never had a Seagate die on me, and I've owned Seagate sinc...

1TB HD?! Crazy!!!! But, I'd have to admit that I would fill it up in short order as well. Strange how more storage = more crap to download and fill that space, even though you will probably only use 1/2 (if that) of the data :P

I loves me my Corsair, so I went with the Dominator's, but partly due to its cool looks & name :P With a name like "Dominator" to lose out to anyone else is not acceptable! ;)

I will be purchasing the 64-bit version, but only when I have to and have no other choice. I'm in no rush to upgrade and will wait until (most of) the bugs have been worked out of Vista... (guess I could be waiting for a while, eh? :P)

The Dell of yesteryear were a GREAT company to deal with, and I had no qualms about recommending their products to friends & family... However, the "new" Dell of present day leaves alot to be desired... It's too bad that the product & service has plummeted, as most people probably associate the Dell...

It sucks to lose another company, but with their recent reviews, I can't say that I'm not surprised... :( Treat enough of your customers badly, and it will affect you, whether it be today or the next... :cry:

I voted for ST: TNG because that's what I grew up watching. I tried watching some original series episodes, but I guess I just couldn't "get it", as my first exposure was TNG, and the original series just paled to it at the time... I appreciate that without the original, TNG would not exist, but I w...

You're just going to have to put up with him and his whining for now... in time, when he realizes that nobody really cares and/or is extremely annoyed with him, he should revert back to his quiet self, and the world will go on ;)
