I found 1 review of one of their cards over at a site called elitebastards.com dated march of 08 Looks like their part of "T...

I hate impulse, I had to install it for the Demigod demo and its been nothing but a buggier, stripped down version of steam.

Re: Two TRITTON Headsets Crank Up the Volume for Best Buy

They had these at Quakecon this year, they sounded pretty good, I would have gotten some if Steel Series hadn't made me a better offer.

I could see something like this being big for colleges. At my school, The University of North Texas, every building has rows of computers that are usually dated sff pc's or 22/24 inch iMacs. Something like this would be a cheap upgrade and would help them consolidate their lineup, which could be goo...

Re: will you call me a poser if i dont OC?

To me, leaving a system constantly overclocked is kinda useless. Will I oc the hell out of my system for benchmark purposes? Ofcourse. But I don't need an extra 600MHz for firefox or counterstrike. I vote no.

There is also an exhaust port on the back for what could be an outside thermal exhaust system
I hope that's a relatively cool running chip because that vent is tiny.

Re: NVIDIA Tegra Provides The Multimedia Muscle In Zune HD

Tegra sounds like an amazing chip, its either going to make or break Nvidia. With that said, if Microsoft, Samsung or LG make a crappy device for the Tegra then it wont matter how long the battery lasts or how pretty the graphics are. In order to compete with Apple the Zune needs more publicity, and...

Re: USS Texas - Floating Museum Visit

Houston is like the sweaty arm pit of Texas. Only its an armpit full of Asians, messed up roads, and mosquitoes.

I lost a pair of $100 dollar sun glasses on a tour of that ship! Fun tour though!

Id also recommend the USS Lexington in Corpus also a very big very fun tour!

Re: Brand Names and Mispronunciation

Im really tired of people referring to Apple simply as "Mac"

I got a room mate who owns a macbook who constantly says things like "mac needs to fix my computer, im going to the mac store" or "mac needs to fix itunes"

but i suppose that's more misidentitey then mispronunciation
