    Opinion- Pokemon Red is the Best RPG of All Time

    in Gaming Discussion 10 hours ago

    I disagree with OP's assessment. To me the greatest RPG of all time is the original Final Fantasy for the NES. It is the RPG that got me into RPGs. Has an excellent story. It was well ahead of it's time. The game is still fun to play this very day. As for Pokemon, I could never get into the series. It always bored me for some reason....

    The American lifestyle, what is it really?

    in General Discussion 13 hours ago

    One item I forgot to mention earlier is that electronics are dirt cheap in the US compared to Europe and we don't have VAT tax. Because of this even the poorest of Americans families (excluding the unfortunate homeless) have a lot of personal/material possessions. The average poor citizen living off the government has a High-Def TV, Smart Phone and Cable/Satellite television service. It is not...

    Well you said they are going to Jacksonville so... That is a larger city so here is what they can look forward to. A nearly never-ending selection of different foods from just about every culture under the sun. It is a thriving city with a lower amount of unemployment so there a lot of great neighborhoods with bars, restaurants, and arts to take up their time when they are not at work. It is a...

I want to make sure you don't accidentally purchase one that won't fit, it has to be 9.5" or less in length and if it is almost 9.5" you will need to make sure the power connection is on the side and not the back of the card. Sure. I'm going with Amazon for the purchase because it's a $1...

It has 10% off plus a $20 rebate which makes the current selling price $40 off. Seems like a good deal Can you post the link to whch card you decdied on?

    I just looked up your Dell case and it is pretty small and you will not be able to install a typical 10" vidoe card. You will need to get a Mini verison designed for Mini-ITX cases. I found this to determine the size of the case: http://en.community.dell.com/support-forums/desktop/f/3514/t/19481730 With that said, you could get the Refurb GPU at the top of the list in my last...

    dreamcast210 said: OK. Got a question about power supplies. I got a 500w supply thinking that's fine. But now I'm seeing in specs for different cards things like "2 x 6pin". What do I need know about the specs of a card to make sure it works with my power supply? Well here is a quick breakdown of the PowersSupply connectors. The 4+4, 4+2 (or 8PIN) will be the for you CPU. The 6 or...

You will also see about 10-15% less performance on most games compared to similar benchmarks for the same video card, this may increase as games get more demanding. With that said you will get amazing performance out of an AMD R9 380 or a GTX 960. So long as you stay at or under...

I guess a cheap 100$ graphics card would be the best upgrade for it, but your unlikely to get that CPU running games better than your PS4 or XB1.

On top of that, most people who buy them only do so because it's what they know, not because they see them as these superior products. They're housewife electronics.

Maybe in the future they will be useful, but right now they are sometimes reach 300 bucks and their only functionality is to make you have to pick up your phone less often.
