Re: 8800 gt akimbo vs. 8800 gts KO

A gts (g92) will average 5-10% (max 14%) higher performance over a gt (g92) . Heres an article to answer that question better : http://www.tweaktown.com/articles/1237/1/page_1_introduction/index.html Ive also compared my gt setup to my bro's gts setup , and the article mentioned seems to be fairly a...

Re: Netflix to Offer High-Definition DVDs Only in Blu-Ray Format

Yeh , Iam debating on returning my A3 to CC ($100.04) . As as upcovert player its great though , as I have 400+ SD movies atm . Its just hard to give Sony any $$$ (imo) , and who knows what the future price(s) of BR will be . Most think it will go down sooner then later , but this is Sony we are tal...

Re: Netflix to Offer High-Definition DVDs Only in Blu-Ray Format

Oh the pain of having Sony win out . Personaly I think down the road the consumer is really going to get hurt by Blu-Ray winning the format war ; as the Sony will have free reign to do as they please (DRM , Copy-protection , etc) .
