    Firefox 5

    It's pretty much the same for Firefox 4, except with performance improvements. Firefox is now on a release major version every few months. Firefox 7 is already in the works.
  2. Everything should fit in the website, but the videos 'stretch' the website so I have to scroll left and right it doesn't really bother me, just thought I might let you know.
  3. Just a heads up. Running at 1024x768 (I don't think anyone runs at that resolution anymore ) the embedded videos in news posts break the website.
  4. USPS is the best service. All EMS services are the best.
  5. You could do this: http://www.intomobil...ingerbread-ota/ Or wait for the OTA update on the 13th. http://www.gizmocrunch.com/rumors/6752-motorola-droid-x-android-gingerbread-release
  6. I know right? They were amazing. I LOVE old films, 80's, 90's. Simply because they don't make them the same anymore. I like new films too don't get me wrong.
  7. The reason is money comes from the consoles. Plain and simple. And I'm not sure for the X360, but PS3 developers are become more and more efficient in their programming. Take a look at Killzone 3, Uncharted 2, God Of War 3 and Heavy Rain. Because they are so limited, and they ONLY have to focus on ONE system, they can develop techniques and optimise heavily. For example, in God Of War 3, they use an anti-aliasing technique know as MLAA. Instead of relying on the GPU, it relies on the processing power of the PS3's CPU. Don't bash consoles because you think a PC is better. No doubt it is, but when developers can't optimise due to so many different systems and hardware configurations, it will take PC game YEARS to move forward in how they look. You guys also seem to be forgetting WHY you play games. It's to have fun right? So what does it matter. If it doesn't look like arse, and I haven't seen ANY game look visual unplayable for years, then just have some damn fun with the game! That's the whole point isn't it? If you want to look a graphics, then download programs such as Cinebench and stare away all day, but I'd take a PS3/X360 over a PC if it means having more fun.
  8. 1 Is already taken My number: 111
  9. I've got a $10 Amazon.com E-Certificate, but I can't use it because I live in Cyprus. Would anyone be willing to buy it for $10 through PayPal?
  10. Yep: http://www.promise.com/storage/raid_series.aspx?region=en-global&m=192&rsn1=40&rsn3=47&statistic=pegasus http://www.lacie.com/us/technologies/technology.htm?id=10039
  11. My specs if I won: CPU: Intel Core i7 950 Motherboard: Foxconn FlamingBlade GTi RAM: 4GB Corsair Dominator DDR3 1600Mhz GPU: AMD Radeon HD 6870 HDD: SeaGate Momentus XT 500GB PSU: XFX PRO 750 And a large XFX sticker to stick on the side of a generic computer case <3
  12. 4.1 GHz without HT will be LARGELY better than 3.5GHz with HT on. You'll notice a difference in gaming performance too since HT rarely helps in games at all, plus is properly multi-threaded applications, HT will be of no use.
  13. 40GB PS3 (CECHH04) 1 Controller 9 Games: Fantastic Four ROTSS Overlord: Raising Hell Ratchet and Clank Quest For Booty Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo HD Rag-Doll-Kung-Fu Fists of Plastic Warhawk Medieval Burn Zombie Burn Super Stardust HD €230 including shipping. Only selling because I need the money, everything works 100%. Please buy, I need that money! (Don't we all...)
  14. I would've gone for a 32-Core AMD server for that price...
  15. So they've updated it now? So a Gigabyte is now 1000 Megabytes? Interesting...
  16. Yes. Although 1.595 would be recommended instead of 1.6 for 24/7 use. After 1.6, the chip starts to degrade.
  17. Just a heads up, it's GB, not GiB. GiB is Gibibyte.
  18. TDP is measured in Watts, not temperature, so what are you saying? It's thermal threshold is 100C...
  19. The same price the current NVIDIA cards where released for.
  20. Learn to read: And here you go: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_device_bandwidths#Memory_Interconnect.2FRAM_buses
  21. What are you guys saying? Most of what all of you are saying is wrong. Intel uses triple channel RAM because it supports it through its Integrated Memory Controller (IMC). AMD only uses dual-channel because it has a hybrid IMC supporting both DDR2 and DDR3. The timings and speeds do not matter as they will both run the same. The only reason RAM would be branded for Intel is because it has an XMP profile. The XMP profile contains information for the motherboard to read to set the correct timings/voltages and frequencies. And DrDeath you are completely wrong saying triple-channel has the same performance as dual-channel. It has greater performance, and an increase memory transfer rate. Also, you can buy up to 8GB modules of DDR3 RAM, so your point is automatically moot by that, because that would run in single-channel. Also, Intel's specifications say they don't want RAM with more voltage than 1.65, but if you are overclocking you can go over that limit assuming you have the proper cooling to do so. AMD current line of processors have a weaker IMC than Intels, which means that it is harder to reach higher frequencies/timings. The current record speed for AMD DDR3 RAM is 2.4GHz, while for Intel it is way above 3GHz. And guys, if you DON'T know what you're talking about, DON'T say anything at all.
