I don't know, if the guy from the Old Spice commercials was selling it I'd probably buy it.

He sold the processor. That just means it wasn't meant to be.

Everybody with fios needs to call them right meow. I got a free speed upgrade. I went from 50/50 to 75/50 fo frizzle.

Before upgrade took effect:


I'll post one when it's updated.

Charter sucks anus. I pay for 100, wired. I get this wireless. Even the wired is only like 35-40 at non-peak hours.

I would drop it lower, but it was only an extra $10/month. I should probably complain and get something for free because **** the cable company.

Charter has always been a pain for me, I hate them with a passion. We never got the speeds with them that we paid for. But if you call them and really let them have it, threaten them with changing providers, etc they will get on top of it

Is a full tower my best bet, or should I just get a better mid tower?

The "master builder" at CompUSA said a full tower makes keeping components cool much easier.

Full tower is better if you wanna shove more **** in er, if you got the space and money might as well go for it.

If you have room and cash, why not? A mid-tower is going to take fewer fans to do the same thing, though, so it might end up quieter. I'd almost think a well-organized mid-tower would be easier to cool than a full-tower, less dead space to deal with.

That's how I got bumped from 30 to 100 for $10/month lol. I mean, I completely understand that a wireless 100 won't be near 100, but 20 during non-peak is pretty

Well the PSU/Case combo deal is really cheap and I definitely have space in my office.

I think it will make SLI and eventual liquid cooling much easier.

Speaking of which, can I SLI an EVGA GTX570 classified and a PNY GTX570 enthusiasts edition?

I have a Dell Inspiron ith the i3 processor and all the basic stuff. Now right now it's an all purpose device, but I notice that it struggles with games such as the Planetside 2 Beta. What's my best bet to making my laptop work more efficiently?

Or is it better just to save some money and get a desktop?

I wish I could trade in my best buy gift cards for cash. I want a GTX 570 but there's no way in hell I'm paying for the price of one new especially when they're so much cheaper second hand.

My GTS 250 isn't cutting it for planetside 2.

Is anyone familiar with Microcenter.com? I've never heard of them until now. They have the i5-3570k for an entire 40 dollars cheaper than newegg. This is for store pickup only and is an hour away from me, so no big deal to pick it up.
