    What kind of motherboard were these tests conducted on?

    The reason I ask is because boards based on Intel chipsets, particularly the 965, scale a bit weird with fsb. The reason for this is...

    DX9c was the implementation of Shader Model 3.0. There have been very few games to actually use SM 3.0, a couple of which include FarCry (which was patched for it) and Rainbow Six: Vegas (which...

    Holy crap. Man, that's the worst story about USPS's service I've ever heard. It sort of reminds me of the movie Funny Farm, where Chevy Chase goes to great lengths to get his mail carrier to...

    That's a relief. As a programmer, I hate to hear about IP theft like that. I'm glad it turned out to be nothing.

    Holy cow. If this turns out to be true, I see a major lawsuit coming. It also wouldn't surprise me. When a game is as late, or rather cemented in Vapor-ware status, as S.T.A.L.K.E.R. was, the dev...

    Application compatibility is an issue for linux. But it's like that with any OS that is different. For example, look at how many programs won't run on Vista. MS has the resources to correct the...

    Unfortunately, it can't be prevented. Windows rots over time and the problem is the registry. It's just a flawed design. Pretty much every program writes to and reads from the registry, and due to...

    That's an interesting theory, and there's probably some truth to it. However, I think the linux movement is gaining momentum and that is partially responsible for the demand. I look at it like the...

    I prefer eVGA myself. But I would go with XFX if they had the least expensive version of the model I was shopping for, and it saved a substantial amount (say $10 or more). As was already stated,...

    From this it sounds like the 8800 Ultra is mostly going to be a paper release, solely to retain bragging rights. That's rather lame imo. It's essentially just binning gpu's, cherry picking the best...
