    Doubtful but.... 7870 FS Anyone want it?

    I have a fresh from RMA XFX 7870. It should have Lifetime warranty since it inherited warranty from a 6950. I can put a block on it unless I go with a universal, not gonna happen. I want to get $190 Shipped on it.

    Nvidia Titan

    So what do we think of the Titan? I doubt it will stay within that envelope of 250w, I think in actual testing it will end up much closer to 300w+. I gotta say, I dunno how well its gonna sell at that premium and because a lot of people who purchased 680s for launch price are not gonna want to...

    HELP ME!!! Realtek SUCKS!!

    I need a cheap decent sound card. This realtek BS onboard POS SUCKS!! Even with an X-Fi mod on it it sucks because it wont setup my speakers right. I had it right for a day then suddenly nothing works. It probably should be PciE for upgrades sake.

    Recommend me a keyboard!

    I want something backlit, something with smaller thinner keys, similar to laptop keys. What I am looking at is the Razer TRON keyboard, it looks awesome and seems to be perfect and AFAIK Razer has them available. The cool thing is that I can swap the number pad to either side or remove it...

    "Botched" 6790s Released

    It appears that there has been some mixup in communication between AMD and its partners, which resulted in a bit more ROPs on the HD 6790 card. AMD's official specs stated that this Barts GPU should be left with 800 Stream processors while the number of ROPs should be 16, or half of the...

    Nvidia GTX 590

    Wow.... This is the biggest fail card I have ever seen. Only a 77Mhz OC on stock vcore add vcore and OCP is triggered lmao You can get all this fail for the low low price of $699.99 :D The card may be quiet but that's because it cant OC and has extremely reduced clocks. This card may be better...

    Newest "Hotfix" Catalyst 10.10e MLAA for 5xxx Cards

    I grabbed this after seeing what it could for games, too bad there are a few glitches and you have no way to change special settings for only certain apps unlike nvidia. The most massive problem is with WLM 2010, apparently it uses GPU power for some reason or another and with MLAA on it looks...
