  1. Is this happening under load or at the desktop? My 460 occasionally does the same thing in certain games, and has for the last year or so. Otherwise its completely fine. Also, what drivers are you on?
  2. So my friend is having a problem with his system freezing up on him. What happens is occasionally when its under load it will just completely lock up and start playing a load buzzing sound through his speakers. It always does it after a few minutes of prime95, and occasionally during demanding games like BF3 and Far Cry 3. I'm almost sure its not temperature related, as it did it while his core temps were still below 70C. I assume it has something to do with his CPU, memory, or motherboard, but we want to be sure before he sends it off to deal with iBuyPowers RMA system. These are his relevant specs. i7 2600k at stock As-Rock p67 pro se 2 x 8 GB memory GTX 560 2GB 650W power supply

    Well, that was fast.
  6. On US cellular a s3 is almost certainly the best you can get. If I remember right its like their only phone that isnt at least 6 months old. So +1 for a s3.

    Health Care Bill Upheld

    Thats my problem with Obama/Romneycare. The system as a whole is still f'ed up and no amount of superficial overhauls are going to change it. I was halfway hoping that they would strike it down so that we might get a chance to actually fix it. What i want to see done is to allow people to buy into Medicare. I remember reading somewhere thats it's actually more cost efficient than any of the private insurers. Something like a 2% cost overhead vs. a 5%.

    What department was it?
  11. Try Dolphin Browser. Its what i used before i switched to my Nexus and it ran ok on my very old HTC Eris, so it should do quite well on a Desire. As for ROMS, Cyanogenmod should work great.

    Battlefield 3

    Not true, or at least not in my experience. You can turn faster if you sort of alternate between the throttle and brake. Like the quickest way to do a 180 is to hold brake for the first half, and then give it the throttle again to keep your speed up. After I figured this out I rarely find someone can who can outdogfight me. Of course, I also know some special maneuvers that almost always can shake people off your tail, but those are secret

    I've always heard 'no highs, no lows, must be bose' But anyway if you cant him to go Nvidia the 6950 is not a bad card at all, especially now that its been out for a while and they probably have most of the driver issues fixed.

    Bose really aren't much better than Beats.
