Re: TR BBQ ~VIII~ Official Thread

I would like to see a list of what Dpos is selling before making any sort of commitment.


Actually as is the case these last few years, family obligations make any sort of real commitment impossible. Put me down as a distant maybe.

Re: 1 year in Afghanistan + Afghan wireless... boost signal?

okay, another question... if I get a USB Wireless Adapter - can I put it on a really long USB cord and still get signal from it? Or does it have to be plugged directly into my laptop>? I am thinking of getting a 15-20ish USB cable and plugging the adapter into the far end of it and poking it throug...

Re: Is there a future for Nvidia?

With ATI's new architecture already in trouble it looks like NVIDIA's future will be very bright.

Re: ATI goes to plan B

Now we can start counting the months for how late/behind ATI is with their next gen part. If they even do a next gen part. Well, it sounds like AMD is making a course correction in order not to be late. Did you RTFA? As Kyle Bennet says, reading is fundamental. Yep their course correction is to be ...

Re: 2010 NFL Draft

The Rams could use McNabb for 2-3 years as a stop gap and draft a QB next year to groom for a year or two under McNabb. My scenario works out PERFECTLY for the Rams AND the Eagles. Unlike certain positions, QB never seems to be a guarantee. I think picking a QB in the 2nd round could work for them....

He preaches to the choir. It does not matter how wrong he is, ATI fans will always love him.

Re: Is there a future for Nvidia?

AMD has a good chance of being profitable this year. The Intel settlement also allows them to accelerate the spinoff of the foundry business, which should help their bottom line considerably. Maybe, I hope so. But that does not answer the 3 questions I asked. Also, I really don't see losing their f...

That's the launch of the 4870, not the rematch Which still shows it using way more power at idle, running hotter and wait for it....... not the fastest chip at launch even showing up late to the party. It's hotter than a 280 which blows the doors off it. I will admit the 480 runs hot, but at least ...
