  1. Water ain't that bad, even though I hate it... When my system leaked all over my gfx card mobo, the pc just shut down. i left it a few hours and it started up perfectly fine, no damage done. All I can say is steer clear of Asetek Waterchill parts! My cpu block leaked, the gpu black had a crack in it, the pump was damn loud and the temps were crappy. I RMA'd the system and then they told me they never recieved it. £180 gone and they won't accept responsibility!
  2. The FX60 is an awesome chip. The E6600 is a much better chip. Simple as that! AMD did own for a while, but now it's Intel's turn for a while Oh and a single 8800GTX is a better choice than SLI 7900's, it'll be faster in games.
  3. Looks like an awesome setup! Hope you have fun biulding it :beer:

    HALO3 Vid

    *drools* I loved Halo2... halo would be the only reason I bought an xbox!
  5. True, but the Wii Console price in the big list is in $, so that should be more accurate!
  6. If anyone is interested, here's some more articles on AMD: K8L in Detail AMD Roadmap AMD Tech Slides
  7. Yip, quick Google search shows 360 is losing $126 per console. However this is an estimate, the exact cost of each component wasn't known. As for the Wii, here in the UK it's on sale for $355 (£180) at the minute (HMV etc.) while it costs $238 to biuld. That's one hell of a profit... Here's a break down of the Retail/Cost for the accessories (in $): WII CONSOLE - 249.99 / 237.50 WII REMOTE CONTROL - 39.99 / 32.00 WII POINTS CARD - 24.99 / 17.00 WII CLASSIC CONTROLLER - 19.99 / 14.50 WII NUNCHUK CONTROLLER - 19.99 / 14.50 WII GPAK ORGANIZER&TRAVEL - 29.99 / 18.95 WII RAYMAN RAVING RABIDS - 49.99 / 41.2 WII THE LEGEND OF ZELDA:TW - 49.99 / 40.00 WII RED STEEL REVOLUTION - 49.99 / 41.22 The PS3 is losing something like $250 per console.. huge loss anyway.
  8. Little bump for me... 2448 That IE cache thing is annoying.. Hope they get it fixed soon Also :crash: at the low ATI score!!
  9. The only thing is Binary that there will be a winner between HD-DVD and Blu-ray, I can't see them both existing. Think of VHS/betamax etc. Of course, we could all end up with players that will play both (thinking of DVD+R, DVD-R, DVD-RAM etc...)
  10. Humm, interesting. I'll be waiting for AM2+ (or even AM3) before I upgrade though, only just got another s939 mobo
  11. Just a stock run, might OC this pig later 2325
  12. I'm pro PS3 atm... I think Blu-Ray will probably win over HD, just because it has more support at the minute. Of course, this could be complete crap and in a year it could all be different My friend plans to get one as soon as he can, so I'll be able to give an honest opinion then!
  13. Are you posting this because of the price of the drive?
