    The thing about cpus is the highest performing ones are well above what you actually need for anything besides quite intensive, specific tasks such as video encoding (which is now in many cases offloaded to gpus anyway).

    Intel is far more expensive than AMD, both in cpu and the motherboards to put them on. Whether the extra performance is worth that cost jump when you actually (in almost all cases) don't need it is debatable.

    While the FX cpus are a disappointment they're not bad as such, just not the massive leap they were hoping for.

    I would agree with Enty though that getting a Phenom II x6 is probably a better bang for buck purchase.

    In the end though what you have is two cars that can go 300km/h and 350km/h, the thing is you really only need to go 120.

    Just delete the accounts if you're done with them.

    I don't like clubs, especially ones without goals of world domination.

    You'll get my involvement when you declare some form of assault on the free world. Or possibly bribe me with free sandwiches (my Achilles Heel).

    Also, 9.

    MW3 is designed to run on console hardware. It's not demanding and doesn't look good.

    Try the suggestions people have given you (update drivers, turn off p2p).

    I'd love it if they did a wave of opt-in keys for Oceania. Considering Australians pay twice as much for games you'd think we would be pandered to like gods.

    posted a message on Buy or Download?
    I buy albums if it's a band I really enjoy however to be honest it's easier to download a pre-ripped one than rip your own copy.

    Anything I've ever made I've given away for free, I also provide free computer technical support and repairs.

    I wonder what would happen if everyone did everything for free, and everything was free.

    Fine for now. When you can, double the ram and replace the graphics card.

    My guess is they removed your beta access when you didn't log in for so long. You could email them or try their support forums.

    At least be happy you ever got to play the beta =)

    posted a message on Elective/Non-Elective Mode. What's the point?
    User friendliness is ruining the computer world. It's opening doors for people who should stay out in the cold. Similar to cars with an automatic transmission. If you can't control a vehicle with a manual gearbox how can you be trusted to do anything right?

    At any rate, at least they gave us the option right? So I have no issue with it being how it is.

    posted a message on D3 Collector Pre-Order
    I preordered mine from a local shop. I'm not sure why since every time I've preordered a CE through them they've screwed me and given the copies to their friends first.

    In hindsight Amazon looks like a better deal and more reliable. Ah well. I'm a risk taker!

    posted a message on So when does the Diablo III Beta end?
    Heard somewhere that the beta will run right up to release time, or very close to it.

    I think when they do announce the release date the rampant and desperate attempts to get beta keys will subside as people will see an end in sight.

    I'm still hoping for a key though, it's just not the same watching it through others' eyes.

    posted a message on How Random Does A Random Post Need To Be To Win You A Beta Key?
    They seem to choose the posters pretty randomly. You see a lot of people who have around 10 posts winning keys so it really comes down to luck.

    It doesn't matter really who you are or where you post from the looks, just that you post according to the guidelines set out by the rules. Every single one of my posts has been in an attempt to win a key and I'm going to hit 100 any day now. So just keep posting (constructive stuff) and hoping (maybe praying if you're that way inclined).

    Good luck.
