Yes, Spike TV. Do tell us who paid the most for their well deserved placement?
That's obvious, GTA. The brostep crowd needs their stuff man, oh and don't forget the bronies crowd either.

Did they really change her outfit based on complaints? Lots of 19th century dresses had plunging necklines, even in the button-down Victorian era (hell, even the queen herself wore plunging necklines from time to time).
A neckline is different than cleavage, even back in the early 1900's. A plunging neckline was considered racy at the time, while not was considered traditional and on the conservative side. Though a women having half her tits flapping in the wind, would have had her charged with public indecency. Unless they were working in a red light district.

Wasn't the P3 300 mhz celeron, the chipset that really kicked off overcloking? That is where you could buy it for like $300 and overclock it to run like a $1000 chip. Back when 3dfx and 3d kicked off? To me that was when overclocking really paid off, $ wise and performance, you needed every little bit.
One of them yep. You could get the 233 and 266 cellery upto 400-700mhz with stock aircooling. And they were dirt cheap, in the $89-129 range if I remember right. Pretty sure I have some of the old stock sheets around for them. They weren't expensive by any means.

What really made them fly was when people figured out how to bypass the hardware multiplier lock.

I'd like to see a compatibility list for the huge catalog of PC games released in the past five to ten years. That's my biggest concern with Win8: not being able to play even one of my existing games puts me off.
Everything I've tried so far works, even some of the more esoteric games that refused to run under Win7 work fine under Win8 like Klingon Academy and SFC. Both of which were surprising. Despite people saying games like WC3/TFT wouldn't work, or there was no audio I had no problems with either of those.

Most of the problems I've run across have been from installers that "don't play nice" or try to write keys that no longer exist. Or their installers are simply broken like Jade Empire or ME2--ME2 is good. Let's add the little "TM" symbol and break everything on one the installers and so on.

PS:T, FO/FO2/FoT all work. Other infinity engine games work like BG/BG2 and so on. NWN/NWN2, older RTS games as well.

meh. I always replace cpu and mobo's at the same time when I upgrade. I'm sure I'd be pissed if i were a hobbyist though.
I just did an upgrade on a AM3+ board, going from a x4 965 to a FX-6300, and I just built a new rig for someone who didn't have a lot of cash. So I slapped in a x4 640, and in a few months they'll be getting a FX-8320 or 8350. So these things do happen outside of the hobbyist market.

Then nuke it from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.

By confusing people. How else can they justify themselves? Well to answer that, they'd give you a 28,000 page thesis on it.

Look on the brightside, now you have a shiny new OS install to break for the future.

Muscular Beaver wrote on Dec 4, 2012, 17:43:

Anyone tried it yet what that means exactly? More or less power usage?
That's what it's supposed to be. I'm going to stay away from them and stick to the 306's. The last time they tried this it was nearly 7 months of driver restart crashes, because of their "power saving feature." Most will probably remember the 279-299 series drivers that gave the "driver has stopped responding" messages. They were trying something similar as well.

It's a rare but common enough problem, only solution? Reinstall the OS.. I am not joking on that.
There's solutions posted earlier in the thread, but I'm just going to say it's overkill. The only time you should need to nuke an OS install from orbit is when it's so screwed up, that you can't fix it. This though, is fixable with enough patience.

Bloody true on that one. Nuking it from orbit is the only way to be sure.

Couple of reboots, no luck! Haven't had trouble with a video card driver for probably a decade.... guess I was due.
Last two or three series of drivers for nvidia have been flaky with the installer. Where they won't work if there's any hint of an older driver left. Ran across the same problem on 7x64, and I had to remove every previous version of the drivers before the first set of 3xx's would install.

It is? Well if you're counting metro. Remove metro, and I'm actually happier with it than Win7.

Well, from the looks of the kickstarter, sure seems like there was a market for this kind of thing. Stupid publishers. There's a good reason that those old infinity engine games were so popular: they were fun as hell to play while also telling a compelling story.
Here, allow me to show you the movie industry. Now compare, gaming industry. See any differences today?

What's the MCE addon?
Windows Medic Centre. AKA the thingy that lets you watch DVD's and crap via the normal media player in windows. Due to the MP4/MP3 and RIAA/MPAA crap, MS couldn't come to terms on a licensing agreement and pulled it out of Windows 8. So until January, if you get it at the discounted price(either $14.99 inside the 1yr upgrade period or $39.99 existing license upgrade), you get it for nothing.
