Probably safer to go with a Corsair TX750. The builder series has a bad reputation for shoddy parts, whereas the rest of Corsair's line-up is solid. I can vouch for the 750TX too, it's done a...

The quality varies, but Before I Play is quite handy for non-spoilerish hints about games. http://www.beforeiplay.com/index.php?title=Main_Page
Thanks, I'll add that to the list. Gives me a good reason to actually play Civ, I've always ignored the series for the crime of not being Alpha Centauri.
This is a thread about PC games that take advantage of touch screens. It would be nice to have a list of compatible games suggested by the community. Ideally they shouldn't need a keyboard or mouse...

In that paragraph I was describing Samara's clothing and other ills to illustrate the point that ME's female outfits objectify women in a way that is at odds with how their character is otherwise...

Indeed. In this case the game mechanics don't work very well.
Yes, I was comparing black people with mentally disabled people. Also gay people and religious people too! You have illustrated...

Apart from the common wisdom that starting a relationship with somebody just to "fix" them generally doesn't work, it also implies that they need the help of an outside person to be complete. It...

Shephard does get several opportunities to discipline the crew who remain on the ship, like navigator Presley and the PA that Mango mentioned. It makes sense that he would be much less formal with...

^^^Can't we just ignore that guy? Maybe he can participate once he stops using slurs^^^
I get where you're coming from here, but people's beliefs can and do change, although it may happen much...

Having not played through ME3 yet, I don't have much context, but it seems highly inappropriate to debate homosexuality, or even say "I don't want to talk about it" when the poor guy tells you his...

You bring up an interesting point when you talk about other forms of prejudice in Mass Effect. There is overt racism, as well as the bit of "god mocking" you mentioned. So why not homophobia? I...

That's fair, but your opening post was asking if it was possible to roleplay a character who was not comfortable around gay people, or to tell them not to bring up the subject. The issue in this case...

I've always preferred the infinity engine to the Neverwinter Nights series. Is that weird? The camera controls are awkward and I end up wasting a lot of time just trying to get a good viewing angle...
A+ for effort!

Oh yeah, I hadn't intended to place the blame solely on consoles. I don't want to vilify the platform, some of my favourite games are exclusive to consoles! Being unable to open a game's .ini or...

500 watts should leave you a decent amount of breathing room, but it isn't overkill by any means. The psu you linked does seem rather expensive for a 500 watt unit. In that price range you might want...

This is exactly what I was saying with the phrase "hard-coded at a basic level". Sorry if my terminology offends you somehow. Presumably you are better qualified to go into detail about such...

So Japan is basically the sacred cow of the gaming industry?
Sort of off topic, but I googled Square-Enix, since they seem to be doing pretty well, and holy crap the company is pretty much...

It's safe to turn real time scanning off so long as you practice safe browsing habits, and don't open random cracks for games and so on. You can always do an on demand scan of any downloaded files...

Oh yeah, considering the problems I encounter with a slightly different WASD layout, I can't imagine how frustrating it must be to have to remap everything. Left handed people are just the tip of the...

Possibly a dumb question, but do you have any power saving settings turned on? Does the laptop take just as long to boot when it is charging?
Also, check if your AV is running any scans upon boot,...

I was going to draw this as a Venn diagram, but meh.

Vista added a new feature called Superfetch that automatically fills your ram with data from commonly used programs upon startup. That might be the issue, it usually causes a lot of hard drive...

They do seem to have a lot in common. I think he's on to something.

A lot of the time, keybinding issues are caused by ported console games. The keys or "buttons" are hard-coded at a basic level, and remapping them causes unexpected behaviour.
A good example is...
