Re: Best Gamepad controller?

Wired 360 controllers all the way. Works flawlessly with windows 7 and with my N64 emulator. It also works seamlessly with games that bear the "games for windows" designation.

Re: Black Ops

I picked up Black Ops, haven't played it since I found it was performing DDoS attacks (UDP floods in the server browser) on me in the server browser. Being all dedicated servers are from a single source, can't Treyarch and gameservers.com fix it so it has gateways that collate the lists of servers ...

Re: Black Ops

Black Ops is buggy They have been fixing things right along. MP Lag/stutter has been patched/fixed. Server browser friends tab now works. Having fun online with this game. and they made a whole lot of wrong choices about it. Contracts, wager-matches, perk-setups, etc, no quick-scoping, etc. These a...

Re: Black Ops

Black Ops is buggy, and they made a whole lot of wrong choices about it. Contracts, wager-matches, perk-setups, etc, no quick-scoping, etc. I didnt sign up for an FPS only to get something akin to Black Ops Manager. About the only really good things they did was getting back dedicated servers and n...

Re: xbox 360 for a PC gamer?

There aren't too many good 360 games that don't go to either the PC or the PS3, are there? Based on what I've been reading at Penny Arcade, the Kinect isn't something you want for yourself just yet -- it's interesting but party-themed. gears of war and halo are pretty much the xbox exclusives but l...

Re: Received DOA 4890 as a replacement for DOA 4870, need advice

Yeah maybe a 275 would be cool. I called xfx today and they're expediting me another 4890 right away, this time he said they'll test it to make sure it works and send it out tomorrow. Hopefully, problem solved!

Re: Received DOA 4890 as a replacement for DOA 4870, need advice

I submitted a ticket on their site and I'm gonna call them tomorrow! How annoying! Any thoughts about a 6850/70 or a gtx 460? Those factory overclocked geforces seem pretty slick!

Re: Received DOA 4890 as a replacement for DOA 4870, need advice

My monitors are not an issue, I'm using my $1200 hdtv, plus it worked fine with my 4870. Also, my psu is a corsair 650w modular 80+, again, more than enough power. My 4870 was struggling on some games, but not horribly. I guess its back to gaming just on my 360. My card is not running hot, its the s...

Received DOA 4890 as a replacement for DOA 4870, need advice

hey all, im more of a lurker than a poster here, but im in a situation where i need some advice. I was using an xfx 4870 for over a year with zero problems, then a few weeks ago, the fan on it started buzzing. I thought, ok, a bearing in the fan is going bad, lets RMA it. So i RMA'd it with XFX (gre...
