They have to have a soft league and call all fouls, because they have no good players. Nobody can score without traveling, carrying the ball, or if they allowed real defense like 20 years ago.

So, let me get this straight. People moan PS3 is too expensive, while Microsoft who forces you to buy two xbox360 consoles within 18 months just to keep up with PS3 is just fine. Some really twisted logic, buy the same console twice, spending a few hundred more than PS3, and still be inferior to PS3.

Because colors on even best LCDs look like crap compared to a good CRT.

Even though the Intel looks better than the AMD - is it faster without overclocking? E4300 is a joke, and it doesn't look better even with overclocking, unless you get extremely lucky and can overclock to 2.4 ghz.
