    What makes a PC good for you?

    definitely quick UI, slow responding windows (like work pc) REALLY gets on my nerves

    adsl 2 speeds

    less whinging please lol, im lucky to get 700kbps down on a good day, mostly i average 630kbps. that's adsl2+ also, i live 3+klm from the exchange. however my old 8mb plan was pulling an average of 900kbps on telstra hardware. my dsl2+ is optus hardware, major difference in performance. but count yourself lucky, id be bummed if i was getting 1.9mbps and dropped to 800-1.1 like you are but compared to a few people around here youre doing well.

    PC Retail going ,going

    no offence but i dont know where you are buying games for $110 these days, unless your talking consoles. i havent paid over $90 for a game in years.

    Dead Island

    i agree a weapon swap on the mouse scroll would be nice, the inventory system is a little tough to navigate at times also. they are the only negative things i have to say about it though. oh maybe the weapons degrade a little too quickly i mean for realism sake would a steel pipe or a cleaver really degrade THAT quickly from killing "dead humans?" i find myself doing ALOT of kicking

    The 650D is a case that I may buy, would probably put a H100 cooler in it. Though what you say about the cables and the side panel, I've had enough of that with my Fractal. Heh, looking at it now, it's held on with the just the clips in the front and the thumbscrews in the back, not even on properly. the 650D is a great looking case and easy to work with but i wish it was just a few millimetres wider on that side.

    yeah i was a little bummed about my 650D case not accepting the RX rad in the regular mounting holes. ive had to mount the rad more to the removable side panel side with screws through the grill to fit it. ive also filled up the 5.25 bays. but i dont plan on adding too much more other to maybe put a single GPU under water once a nice single gpu options becomes available. also my cable management is pretty horrendous, around the back i literally have to force that side panel on with all the junk that's around there. it even bulges a little on that side. great case but not as roomy as i quite would like with a water set up. nice system to nuke :)

    Modern Warfare 3

    i thought BF2 story was pretty good, the characters were likable at least. CoD characters are just randoms you have no idea what they've done who they are or where they come from. i liked Black Ops because there were re-occurring characters. MW/MW2 and from the looks MW3 are all clones of each other as far as SP goes. imo at least. no real thought gone into the SP it's just "oh no the USA has been invaded lets try and defend through all these scripted and preset pathways throughout the game" im not writing it off but from what ive seen of MW3 doesn't impress me at all. graphically it looks fine but i dont set my standards very high as far as graphics go, i thought MW2 looked good lol

    Any At0mic WoW players?

    i enjoy the game, i dont however enjoy all the people who take the game FAR too seriously and constantly cry to the hilt about DPS output. that is what ruins the game for me im afraid. i dont feel like i can even do a regular instance without getting abused because i dont play 6hrs a day and am not covered with epics.
