    Re: Recent Purchases

    Well, I got a standalone battery charger for my Xbox 360, and then after finding a thumbstick went out, I ordered a new controller for it as well. I like to have at least 2 controllers per console,...

    Re: Help with Buying New computer

    I might be wrong, but it looks like most 3.7GHz chips are of the Intel variety in Socket 2011, so you're asking at minimum $300 for the motherboard. AMD does have the 3.7GHz option as well, but AM3+...

    Poll: Re: Game of the Month October 2014

    Battlefield 3 as long as we're talking PC. I do have BF4, but it's on Xbox.
    Either way, I serve as cannon fodder. :D

    Sticky: Poll: Re: What Mainboard do you have?

    Finally, a real upgrade. I snagged the MSI Z97S SLI Plus, plus a Pentium G3258 and 8GB G.Skill DDR3. I'm still getting used to a bunch of things, but with the included software, I'm up to 4.3GHz....

    Re: Recent Purchases

    Bit the bullet for a modest upgrade--USB ports are dodgy with my current entry-level P965 MSI board. Had some good offers at Newegg, so I ended up ordering the MSI Z97S SLI, Pentium G3258, and 8GB...

    Re: Recent Purchases

    The hacking is a nice addition they left out of ME3, but definitely a plus when there. I've enjoyed the Deus Ex series (save Invisible War *shudder*), and this is in a similar vein.

  12. Re: What's your most anticipated game of E3 2014?

    I'm playing Mass Effect 3 now and really enjoy it. I've heard a lot of complaints about the ending, but the gameplay reminds me a lot of Deus Ex. I'm just shy of about 10 hours into the thing, but...
  13. Re: what was You favorite old school AMD motherboard ?

    A7V! Nothing was as good until I got the DFI NF4 Ultra-D.
    For all the hoopla over Epox, my experiences with 8k3a+ and 8RDA were less than compelling.

    I would like an air compressor, but outside of dust bunnies, I don't really have a use for it. Air tools aren't something I see using anywhere down the line. If I did, I'd just ask my...

    Re: Recent Purchases

    Bought a Cooler Master 212 EVO. It works better than my H60 for some reason, but even so, I didn't realize how hot the X6800 would run. I'm contemplating a Gigabyte 970-UD3P/6300/8GB DDR3 if I can...

    Not tech related, but I did order a new garbage disposal off Amazon. I need to get this done. I also need to buy a battery for my Explorer, but 1 project at a time or I won't get anything done.

    I never played any COD game until Ghosts. The campaign was fun (stupid fun), and the MP was fine, but the maps seemed a bit large for an 8 player max.

    Even though my NF4-D died some time ago, I haven't tossed it. I'd like to mount it on the wall, but I don't think the missus is going to let that fly. That and cats and kids might knock that down.
