    Family pc and gaming.

    1. What YOUR PC will be used for. That means what types of tasks you'll be performing. Home PC for the family. Internet, Adobe, schoolwork and gaming capable. I have a R290 gfx card and a case. The rest I need to buy. Including the OS. 2. What YOUR budget is. $500-$700 before taxes. 3. What...

    Anyone buy from IVMshop.com?

    I need a new copy of Win7 Pro and this place has it for $76 compared to $157 at ncix. Ncix won't price match it for whatever reason. Just curious if anyone has used this place before and what their experience was like. I never heard of them. Microsoft Windows 7 Professional - 64-BIT - License...

    New Build \0/ - Memory help.

    Ok guys. My rig is sooo old (XP, AMD X2 5000+, GTX275, 2GB Ram) and I have some "newer" parts here and need to complete my build for a Win7 machine because XP is no more as of April 8. I haven't really kept up with this stuff with working f/t + teaching p/t and 2 kids. So I am looking for some...

    Budget i3 Game Machine

    I have to update my friends machine that I built some years ago (AMD 64x2/7900GS). I haven't built in a long time and am not up to date with the latest stuff. He is looking to spend maybe $500-$600 on new parts. Here is what I can salvage from his current machine. PSU (OCZ 550W) DVD SATA HDD...

    Best router for me?

    My WRT54G with stock firmware is still going but I have a lot of issues. My PS3 gets booted off. If my wife conects with her Kobo it will boot off any other wifi device on the network. If I have too many devices connected (like 3-4) the router throws a hissy fit and I need to unplug it and...

Also working on a career change (slowwwwly) so I am working f/t, teaching p/t and going to school p/t. Ya things are busy but all is good. I also just recently sold my condo...

    Dawn of War 2: Retribution

    Took me a long time to warm up to the DoW 2 style of RTS. But now that I have I am really looking forward to DoW 2 Retribution... here's why. 1. No GFWL - THQ is going Steam only. This has moved Retribution up to day 1 purchase as opposed to ridiculous Steam sale price only. 2. 6 Playable...

    Disapear Objects from Live Video

    Now this is getting interesting. In 40ms, a new piece of software can film and edit out a selected object with fairly remarkale results. No it's not totally foolproof but pretty amazing nonetheless, and we know it will only improve over time. Can't help but wonder what main stream media would do...

    Money as Debt: WTF?

    Ok I am no economist, hell I don't even do my own taxes so I am opening the floodgates here and looking for more insight. As far as I can tell from my recent research on this topic is that there is a growing awareness about the con game that is The Federal Reserve and Central Banking system that...

    PS3 Jailbroken, No Modding Needed

    No telling how legit this is yet but it is interesting nonetheless. For $150 (Yes 150!) you can buy a USB dongle that will let you play backed up/copied games without the disc and use homebrew apps. Would I pay this kind of cash out for such convenience ... hell no. Discussion says this is...

    Bioshock Infinite

    So, despite hinting to quite the contrary, Ken Levine and his team at Irrational are making another Bioshock... but this time it's set in the sky. I am ok with this as I would much rather have this team making a Bioshock than the monkeys at 2K. Bioshock 2 was a let down and if 2K makes any...

    Notebook Gaming Mouse Recommendations

    My wife bought me a wonderful Logitech Anywhere MX. I actually really love this mouse except it has a "feature" that makes it useless for some games. Instead of a regular middle mouse button, when you depress it, it switches from speed scroll to click scroll (or vice versa) and this just won't...

    Need a new phone, which one?

    I want to get a web phone. In all honesty I am not that with it when it comes to these things as I am a very basic phone person. But my wife is all giddy about it so ... :whistle: I have a couple requirements. No iPhone (personal preference here) No Telus :censored: Rogers probably preferred...
