    Wanting to find out what games I can run.

    The only other twitch-shooter that I know of is Blacklight Retribution. It uses Unreal Engine 3 technology, and doesn't require a high end system in order to play it.
  2. That's because it's true. MSDN and TechNet keys are NOT for resale, period. Anyone caught selling MSDN or TechNet keys will be subject to fines handed out from the BSA. G2A is a Black Market for pirated keys and what-not. Buyer-beware applies on sites like those.

    [US - Best Buy] LG G Watch for $149.99

    Ditto. I just got my Steel today from DHL and it works great.

    What ISP

    A lot of WISP's have this problem. They either can't manage their networks with QoS, or can't increase the bandwidth to the fiber PoP site. My boss wants to throw 100+ people on a 30 Mbps synchronous connection, and be able to offer them speeds that Netflix will work with. That isn't going to happen.

    Worst Flagship CPUs & GPUs?

    The last case from Antec that I liked working with was the NSK4480. Correction, the SX series cases were not that bad either. I won't even look at anything from Antec now-a-days.

    Worst Flagship CPUs & GPUs?

    Probably already mentioned, but if not (looks like it was. 6 replies prior to my post... ) GeForce FX 5900 Ultra. The Radeon 9800 Pro/XT was killing it in everything. Benchmarks, gaming, you name it. The FX series was one of NVIDIA's darkest moments. Presler XE from Intel. The 955/965 couldn't beat cheaper Athlon 64 X2 processors in FPU operations. AMD surpassed Intel in the retail market at the time on the Athlon 64 X2 product line.

    Remove graphic card from PCIE 16x Slot

    It's not a push tab, it's a pull tab. You pull up on that tab to release the lock. That design was horrid, and would always break at the chance if too much force was used.

    'Teaming' with 100mbps

    Gigabit NIC's are cheap and in abundance. Buy one of those, install it, and disable the onboard 10/100 if you have no use for it.

    ATI 1950X or Intel 4000

    The X1950 doesn't support DirectX 10 nor 11. It's an old, old card that supported DirectX 9. I wouldn't be using it for anything less than an over-glorified doorstop.

    What's up with Seasonic PSU's

    It was damaged, big time. Seasonic is not to blame for this, the shipping company is. Claim damage against them, and try to use another shipping company.

    What's up with Seasonic PSU's

    Can you hear anything rattling around inside the power supply if you were to shake it? It's possible that shipping damage could be to blame.
  12. It doesn't matter where you go, you'll find trolls everywhere. How the community chooses to deal with them is the issue. I've come across forums that have more bad apples than this one has (Cough.... OCC).

    Companies, Brand Loyalty, and Warranty

    I have very few loyalties, but I will say that I will continue to use Logitech gear as their RMA process is superb. Defective mouse or keyboard? Not a problem. Provide the proof of purchase, and they will send a new one, no questions asked.

    What do you think of ctOS?

    All three Countries conduct investigations through partnerships. If one agency wants you, the other agencies can assist in their investigation. NSA, CSIS, and other agencies can combine resources to track down someone. You are better off choosing a Country that doesn't have extradition laws.
  15. Are you folding in the Windows 10 Preview?
