I'm gonna say what others are thinking. Too many new members with 1 post posting within 30 minutes of each other from the same  location. Maybe new criteria that members must be active for 30-days before being allowed to enter? Also if this keeps up we're going to need increased security with new member creation.

 

Not saying all are spamming new accounts just to enter but there are a few that are apparently obvious spam accounts made to enter multiple times. Could be wrong but that's what it looks like to me when you have 2 - 3 entries from the same location within 30 minutes all from accounts with just 1 post.

When we have the Xmas contest, the grand prize has rules like that, but the one-off prizes do not. You of all people should remember that. So this is not an oversight in our rules for this contest. While the main reason for contests is to reward existing members, it's of course nice to attract new members. Sure, some will never be seen from again, but if even just one sticks around, then it's worth it!

I've said it before and I'll say it again: if you mostly care about gaming performance and are already running an i7, there's no need to upgrade. This new chip doesn't change that, especially for the price. CPUs are so underutilized that the vast majority of people could be running 3yr old CPUs without it being a bottleneck.

Very True
 
It would be nice if more games could be configured to offer more performance for this big chips that have more cores and more Cache.

 

Might happen now that we have the new consoles and their better hardware. Can only hope so because I would love to see an RTS with a quadcore requirement  :devil:

 

That's my hope too...that the new consoles push it further. Maybe in a year or two after the major studios get more comfortable/familiar with the new hardware.


In Topic: Tomb Raider $4.99 till 8/29

Not to spoil the mood, but as someone who HAS played some of the older games, it's sadly not as good of a Tomb Raider game in my opinion.  HOWEVER it is still a good game especially if you look at it fresh.  It just didn't feel all "Tomb Raidery" for me.  

 

Short version it's worth the $5, but not so sure about the $30 I paid...

Better than the originals? Well that's debatable. But I think everyone could agree it's better than the previous 2-3 before it....which is why a reboot was sorely needed (and thankfully succeeded).
