    I've donated in the past, and I've always kept ad-block off on the site (Outbrain crap an exception).

    This is the first time I've ever seen an auto-playing video here, RPS is now on my blacklist....

    Probably, but we aren't there yet and I wouldn't recommend it to someone who already isn't so sure about building their own machine. Big difference between a fairly easy to assemble pre-picked kit...

    Water cooling, at least on the CPU, and so long as you won't be going SLI one of the dual-fan GPU models such as ASUS' DCII or similar.

    That said, although I'm glad I made the switch from air...

    Okay then...

    Given you're generally one of the most caustic, impolite people on this forum, and allowing that I'm more than a touch drunk: how does that actually answer the question? Guy sounds...

    Re. Asus drivers - the drivers definitely come laden with bloatware, but in every case I've experienced (and I've used all Asus in all my builds for years) the drivers themselves can easily be...

    It undoubtedly does in most games, but for the most part I find when I'm engrossed in playing it becomes barely noticeable (can be nice if you're just standing around looking at stuff though). I'm...

    The only two games I played recently (as far as I can remember) that were PhysX enabled were Arkham City and Planetside 2. The only difference I actually noticed between having it on or off in either...

    You'll need to be a bit more specific than 'Windows'. Windows itself doesn't detect viruses, so it's got to be some other software running on the machine. Which virus checker are you using?

    Aye, PhysX only works on NVIDIA cards. It isn't that AMD's can't do GPU physics calculations, it's that anything that specifically states 'PhysX' in the options menu is using proprietary NVIDIA tech,...

    Thought I hadn't received an email, but Gmail had thrown it into the spam folder. Just tried changing it and I'm also getting the message about cookies being disabled in my browser, which they...

    As Grible said, I had trouble sleeping at the thought of never hearing your dulcet tones again and finally got off my arse (you sold me with the Gal drops, nowhere near enough of them as a pubby)....

    I also meant to mention in my post above, if you don't have grounded outlets your surge protector will do bugger all due to the excess power having nowhere to go. You'll be better off buying a...

    It might well have been a bug on the squad screen, I just noticed the "Private Squad" box was ticked even though recruitment was enabled. Glad it picked up though, sorry I couldn't stick around.

    Tips on leading a pub squad

    Despite putting it off since beta, a couple of friends joining finally convinced me to bite the bullet and join the outfit yesterday. Glad I did, good banter from the get-go, with just the right mix...

    Depends how your place is wired. I'd have assumed the wiring standards in Japan are better than the garbage I have to deal with here, but the fact you only seem to have a grounded outlet for your...

    Out of everything you've listed I'd say it's most likely the compressor motor in the fridge tripping it when it comes on, or, as Jambe said, you have a short in the outlets or (once again, God...

    Pretty much everything you mentioned is configurable, including the editor used and the shell options. Personally I'd rather use a decent text editor along the lines of Notepad++, or even DW or VS,...

    That's exactly what to do. When I had the problem with my mobo mentioned above, it was my dusty, anicent PSU that helped me narrow it down. No problem, your PSU is bricked, if you have the same issue...

    I had the same message recently. Ended up with my Maximus mobo developing severe stability issues, and my Corsair AX-series PSU being fried. Highly likely that one was related to the other.

    Shell integration is nowhere near as good, supports about half as many file types, it has a hideously annoying pop-up unless you pay or pirate it, interface looks like it's from the late 90s and...

    Why on Earth is anybody still using WinRAR? 7-Zip is way, way better in almost every way and it's completely free.

    Please God no, don't let this happen. They're horribly distracting, and for the most part they look like utter crap. You'll also end up with a ton of new users having their avatar as a pair of...

    Completely agree with this, and as I mentioned above he seems to have a very full plate at the moment. Speculation about Jim's reasons for starting this topic is pointless, but I hope that it is...

    You're alright mate, "half-joking" also implies I'm only being half-serious; I don't think you're anywhere near masochistic enough to be willing to do it. In all honesty though, that'll probably...
