Don't cheap out on the PSU, it's the only component that's capable of destroying all others if it fucks up

Re: mbaxter builds a PC

Go for the 1gb 6950 instead, at 1080p there's no difference between them. Are you sure you need to spend over $200 on a mobo? Seems a bit excessive

Re: The Top Ten Moments in Pro-Gaming History

The NASL finals is the best they could come up with for sc2? The tournament where a random korean ex-sc1 pro somehow gets a last-minute invite, easily beats everyone in the open brackets, and wins the whole thing against players that had to compete for months in group play to get seeds?

Re: EA deletes your games after 24 months of inactivity.

I dislike EA too, and will never use Origin for the reasons above, but seriously, they're not actually going to remove games just because you haven't signed in in ...

Re: Possible PC Build

The i3/h61 route isn't bad for a budget system, though waiting for AMD's Bulldozer could pay off here I wouldn't be considering an SSD with this build because it would add $150-$200 for a good one and that money would be better spent anywhere else really motherboard seems more expensive than the ave...

Re: Battlefield 3 announced today.

Valve didn't release two previously terrible and failed D2D services preceding Steam

There's no reason to trust Origin at all

Re: Should I buy BC2?

don't bother with the DLC, dice did a pretty terrible job of supporting vietnam and there's hardly any servers left

Re: Building A Desktop for HD Video Editting/Gaming

Corsair vengeance ram is shit because it's more expensive than average and has a huge, worthless cooler that can get in the way of other components. Also you don't need a sound card Pick your own parts and make use of Newegg combo deals and you should be able to get a sandy bridge setup for less tha...
