it's making me rethink buying any more Ubi games on PC ... but that's probably their plan. Drive us all to consoles... Upcoming Ubi that I'm interested in: Splinter Cell and Silent Hunter 5. I'm guessing that SH5 is PC only ... no way I'll buy that with the current state of Ubi DRM. I was already wo...

compared with WIC? Similar, but bigger. I'm not familiar with the demo and I haven't played too much of SC2, but SC is much larger scale. There are more combinations of units you can use to put your strategy into effect. There are more strategic options and countermeasures to those options (where in...

one thing you gotta admit - the US system is designed for gridlock. It's built so that it's extremely difficult for anything really substantial to happen unless it really is universally wanted.

i watched it last night. It's not an award winner, but it didn't really suck if you go into it knowing that's it's an Uwe Boll movie. After i finished watching it, i watched American Ninja (Michael Dudikoff) to clense my palate. Not sure I achieved anything.

Buff, I'm not sure that's still true. I had been running a pair of 8800s in SLI and I believe I did run two monitors. I always run the game on my nicer screen and have comms, etc on the second monitor. I believe there were issues with the nvidia drivers and sli with multi-monitors a few years ago, b...

Buff-
The 920 is a great part. I hear they overclock like a mofo. You should be able to get it up to more than 3.5GHz if your RAM can handle it.

Buff, Double check the mobo/cpu compatibility. I believe the Core i7 860 is LGA1156 and the X58 is LGA1366. They have different cpu sockets and wouldn't be combatible. I don't know all the details on that board, but you should probably double check the sockets to make sure so you don't get disappoin...

I've had a good experience with my 5870. I haven't had any issues with any game -- all cranked to max settings (that's why we game on PCs, right?) I think the thing I love most is how quiet it is. After my rig with the 295 sounded like a B-52, comparatively, this new rig sounds like an electric RC t...

they actually just released the 5890 which is a dual gpu version of the 5870 (a la the 295 was for nvidia).

The 5870 was (one month ago) "the fastest single-gpu card available." I think that was according to Maximum PC.

I have been using AVG for a few years and I liked it quite a bit. However, it seems like it was during the summer like june or july, it started bugging me (nag-ware) to upgrade to their paid product everytime it updated it's definitions. I got tired of the pop-ups and nagging. I wonder if you haven'...
