Rant #1: Games for Windows Live Marketplace
Once upon a time there was this boy named Onion.....and he punched a hole through his monitor and shat in his computer fan THE END !!!!
FACK YOU WINDOWS LIVE MARKETPLACE
I was completely naive like a stupid little onion looking for a 5 cent gumball. Ever since the beginning of December, Microsoft has been trying to relaunch "Games for Windows Live" by selling a new game everyday for 99 cents. Of course since moi is quite le cheap

Interviewing Joe Dirt
Give me a quick bio of yourself:
I am 32 yrs old. married for 10 years, two kids, jeez hobbies... I dunno. Playing ET, fixing broken things and tinkering with my cars. I was born in Sarajevo, Bosnia & Herzegovina and survived 2 years living under siege during war.

I like individuals who have a sense of humor, and I also like messing with people
I am looking for players who want to come try Vindictus on Oct 13 (the beta release date). Vindictus is a combat MMORPG that involves destructible environments and using anything you can find as a weapon (from ceramic plates to the corpse of your enemy). Hack and slash strategy will just leave you dead. This game requires you to think as many enemies have different forms of counter attacks and triggered movements
-9 programmable buttons
-4 profiles (128 kb)
-ergonomic design (they actually mean it this time).
Alright so first thing to say is that Coolermaster is a pretty new competitor in the gaming peripheral market (they are mostly known for their cases). The Inferno being their 2nd mouse is a huge improvement compared to their first "The Sentinal." And you know what? This mouse is fantastic and for
This article is very very boring. It is made as a reference for people buying video cards. Also if you want to skip over the data, just go straight to the conclusion for each section.
Performance per $
I used newegg.com (US) for the prices and used www.futuremark.com for their 3dMark Vantage Video Card Benchmarks. From there I just did a quick calculation of the # of Marks per $.
Shipping and Rebates are included in the final price
Prices are f
Onion's Top 10 Computer Cases of All Time
Lol okay these are my favorite computer cases that I have ever seen (and yes i seen them in person =P). How I judge a computer case is by its price, performance, looks (more important than you think =P) and practicality.
Also if you are wondering why some of the cases do not include and interior picture. Its because of this damn blog image limit !!!
Computer stuff that pisses me off?
Here is a list of things of random computer stuff that seem to piss me off. And I mean really really piss me off. There are days i just want to throw a hammer into a mirror because of it !!! (especially #1 !!!!). So read it, add some of your own stuff that pisses you off, and one day some nab could write a book.
6.) 3d Mark Vantage Scores and PhysX.
OMGWTFBBQ I got 60k on my 3dmark CPU score =D.
You hear this all the time from ppl on
1.) Don't get a Dell EVER
Seriously don't get Dell. The quality is shit, the parts are expensive and they usually have some gimickie safeguards inplace like locking bios. Some people say it is good to do that because it keeps stupid idiots from destroying their computer but really how stupid can people be? (actually I better not ask that).
They also have special custom made hardware for some of their models. Like specially screw holes that only fit Dell PSU's !! I even seen
Alright so today I am going to review a Kingston 64GB V Series SSD. I will also compare it to my Seagate Baracuda 7200 rpm HDD. One of the most common questions is "Will a SSD give me a performance boost in games. So what I did was compare 3Dmark Vantage Scores between a regular HDD and an SSD.
Overview of the Kingston 64GB V Series SSD:

Alright lets make some stuff clear first...
Remember "$17 dolla thats gangsta" of a case? Well $17 dollar cases don't cut it. After a few months the top was sinking, the fan that came with it broke, a leg broke off and the hard drive + 5.25' bays were loose and rattling. I remember I wrote in my tutorial "Don't cheap out on the case" but fack I was a total hippocrate.
So I decided to replace my damn case with an Antec 300 which costed me $49.99 (it made me frown but at
Crazy About Fans
Anyways since I am going to start a computer club for the start of next year, I gathered some computer enthusiasts at Simon Fraser University and we had a look at some awesome rigs. Around 6 people participated so it wasn't much. Its hard enough to get people to join during a summer semester when most individuals have their summer off (if not enough members join by next month, the club will not be funded and probably won't be able to be created until the start of
The last couple of months has been computer frenzy. A lot people have been building custom computers and asking for help so I decided to post a pic of one of them. I didn't choose any of the hardware for their rigs. All I did was help put it together =P

Why DVD Cases are Bullshit !
You know what pisses me off? DVD cases. Facking huge ass cases that only use up 60% of its actual space to hold a single DVD. I have like 20 Xbox 360 games and they are big space wasters. I can't keep them in my CD rack or my TV cupboard so I have to keep them on a shelf like its a fricken book.
So Fack you whoever invented DVD cases. What ever happened to the PS1 era of normal cases that were compact in design. 20 DVD cases fill the
I MAKE CHEAP FOR YOU !!! GAMING KEYBOARDS AND MICE
Okay if you haven't figured out by now, all my blogs are not based on the best possible computer spoofs and hardware. Instead it is based on the cheapest bang for your buck. Like I did for my entry's on "The $600 dollar Canadian Gaming Rig", "Ghetto Wireless" and "Making my Own Rig" ; I will continue posting cheap alternatives to some more expensive solutions.
EXPENSIVE: Razer Tarantula ~ $60-$100+
How to choose a DVD Drive:
If you are the basic computer user, almost any DVD burner you find will be suitable. I am no expert in this field since almost any DVD Burner today will be able to provide you with suitable performance for burning DVD and DVD DL formats, playing movies and installing applications. As for DVD burning speeds, I tend not to trust them. Reason is because of burning errors. It doesn't matter if it is 22x or 32x burning speed, if you want flawless error free
How to choose a Processor?
For choosing a Processor, the main deciding factors will usually be its:
CPU rating ( I use http://www.cpubenchmark.net/ )
Number of cores
Number of physical CPU's (a single dual core or quad core is still 1 CPU. Most Processors only have 1)
The processor you choose will either be an AMD or Intel brand. Which one you should choose? Well in the end it all comes down to your price range of course =P. If you want to go for

Power supply Unit
How to choose your PSU?
When looking for a Power Supply, you have to decide on the wattage and the brand. Why do I say brand? A lot of PSU's do not advertise the true wattage that it puts out and some are very poor quality and have random fluxuating voltages which can fry your motherboard. I suggest these brands of PSU: Corsair, OCZ, Coolmaster, XFX or Antec Earthwatts
Also you should decide on what wattage of a power supply unit you want. The wattage will actually be
Decided to make a series of guides because I was unbelievably stupid the first time building a computer. Almost fried my motherboard, bought the wrong case, the thing vrummed like a car and in the end I had to get some serious help lol. Heck even the second computer I just recently made had a lot of stupid little mistakes, but not that severe. Feel free to add on to this (anyone can make a suggestion through the guides and I will add to it)
Now that I finally finished my computer, I think its time I released some benchmarks on how well it performs.
This Vantage Marks are for a CPU and GPU that has not been overclocked. I will plan to clock them in the future.
PCMark 05 Vantage
Pretty much testing all aspects of the computer (from rendering graphics, website surfing, to HDD usage). I really don't know where my computer stands up compared to the average since they do not disclose the PCmark average for all compu
Today I unboxed a XFX HD 5770 which I bought at NCIX for a price of $174.99 Canadian
Unboxing it was really nothing special. You get this nice fancy box with a lot of shiny all over it. Inside is your video card, installation guide and crossfire wire + adapters.
Okay so first look at the video card and you can tell one thing.... it is quite solid and not a flimsy piece of junk (like that XFX HD4870). It has one exhaust vent that moves air outside of the case and side
Alright so I finally picked up my MOBO and CPU today.
I went with an Athlon II x4 620 for $108.99 and MSI 790X-G45 ATX AM3 Crossfire Motherboard for $89.99. Both are just average mobo + CPU compared to what is out there in todays market, but its good enough for me. When installing the CPU, you have to lift the safety arm, and then just drop the damn thing in. Afterwards close the safety arm and put the stock cooling on (no tube lube needed because the retail stock cooler already has the ther
Alright so Number1Dad told me to try to do a stealth DVD Drive, so I am doing that right now
First thing I did was take the Drive Slot Plate and sand the snap-ons down.
Next thing I did was sand the hell out of the slot plate so it will easily move in and out of the DVD drive slot. Afterwards I used the handyman's secret weapon and some folded paper to fill up the empty volume of the slot. This way the DVD Drive and the plate will actually touch each other.
