Re: Bioware Unveils Mass Effect 2 Details

I was a HUGE fan of the first game, hopefully this one is just as good if not better. This one is definitely on my "day 1" list.

Re: Xbox 360 at 54.2 percent failure rate

When I got my 360 I immediately spent $10 on a USB powered notebook cooler and its helped keep the console noticeably cooler to the touch. As long as you don't stand it on it's side (doing so blocks a heat vent) or lay it down on carpet (thick carpet insulates) and use a fan driven laptop cooler you...

Re: Home theater hardware suggestions.

I am very happy with my Insignia especially since I got it on sale for $400 :) When my Klipsch 4.1's died I bought a Yamaha HTR-5750 and some old Technics 3-way floor speakers off craigslist. No matter how nice the pc speakers nothing quite sounds like bass from 12 inch (or bigger) woofers. Ive deci...

Cool! (no pun intended)

Still if there is a company that can mess up an inanimate metal block its CoolIT.

Re: Xigmatek HDT-S1283 CPU Cooler Review

I have one of these but i have the Red Scorpion Edition with nickel plated pipes. These things rock, My only complaint is the crappy push pins for it for LGA 775 but Newegg has a back plate for it for $6.99 still it should have been included. Between the price and the performance this is the best ai...

Re: Intel Cuts Desktop Processor Prices on July 20th!!

Does anyone have any idea when we might expect to see this reflected on newegg and other etailers? Also wasnt the q9450 supposed to be phased out and the q9550 dropped to $316?

Crazy Newegg reviewers.........

So im looking to buy a Q9450 and i was reading reviews on Newegg, this one really caught my eye so i felt like i had to share it with everyone: Pros: This processor seemed like a good buy. It is 45 nm and a good clock speed. It should be relatively easy to OC. Vista64 runs quick and responsive, almo...
