Re: SoundRacer V10 Engine Sound Effects Review

Considering there is no possible way this thing can get any kind of engine info through the cigarette lighter, id venture to guess it is playing engine sound samples based on changes in ambient noise levels. It probably has some kind of mic on it and it tries to get a baseline reading from having yo...

The root also removes a lot of AT&T junk apps and adds wireless tethering to the phone. Alfonso is recognized as one o...

If this were a 5xxx series I might consider it! Everything about this card sounds nice except the fact that it's a generation behind.

Re: SilverStone HDDBOOST Review

Ok, so let me ask this. What happens if you have two of these things chained together? Like say have one with an SSD in it and then have the "SATA Out" that goes to the HDD go to another HDDBOOST that has two HDD's connected? Would we get that SSD benefit across two HDD drives? Or is that just mad s...

Re: Verizon signs up more new subscribers than AT&T

I switched from AT&T to Verizon, went from a 1st gen iPhone to a Moto Droid. Proceeded to root it and install a custom version of Froyo dubbed Bugless Beast v0.4 (the original Droid has an amazing community) then managed to over clock the phone from 600mhz up to 1200mhz using a custom kernel and an ...

Re: SRS Labs HD Audio Lab - The Ultimate PC Audio Software

I've returned from the dead again. Anyway, I like what it does to my sound except i'm getting a faint crackling sound for some reason. I'm going from onboard ALC888 to my YAMAHA HTR-5750 via Optical, then out to two 3-way tower speakers and a 12 inch 125w dayton sub via LFE and i'm getting enough of...

Re: Old School PC Games? Independence War 2

I-War 2 was awesome, Tachyon I didn't like so much I could never put my finger on it. I loved the Descent and FreeSpace series though, I still play FreeSpace 1/2 through the Source Code project, the community has made some serious upgrades to the meshes, textures and engine it looks like a new game:...

Re: ASRock M3A785GXH/128M Motherboard Review

Well the board only supports Crossfire. The paddle card is a generic paddle card that could be used for an ASRock SLi board if they chose to make one with a paddle card. The "Crossfire/SLI" marking are simply a cost cutting feature, like the paddle itself. Instead of printing some with "Crossfire" a...

Re: 3D Vision is amazing... really makes your experinece your ga

Stereoscopic shutter glasses are old technology. ASUS was making cards that supported that as far back as the TNT2. On a CRT monitor it worked so so. What they should have done was gone for some type of polarizing technology like RealD uses. The reason they are using shutter glasses is because pola...

Re: DirectX 11 Game Titles and Release Dates

I wont say im regretting buying my 5870 but honestly besides Crysis running really well I haven't seen any returns on my investment yet. I thought Dirt 2 was going to be a Windows 7 "launch title" but when I entered my steam code for it it said it wasn't going to be released until December! Being an...

Re: NVIDIA Makes Statement About Their Chipset Business

so...... in other words they are saying "we don't need to make a new AMD chipset because our crappy ones sell well" thanks alot Nvidia.

How the hell do they hope to remain competitive in the long run with their entry level AMD chipset if they don't have anything new on the table?

Re: Can you recommend a good keyboard

Ive owned an Eclipse II and their nice keyboards but then I found an IBM Model M from 1993 and fell in love. They do not make them like this anymore, if you want durability and a tactile response that is to this day unequaled then find an old ps/2 Model M mechanical switch keyboard. Typing just feel...
