Re: Looking to upgrade CPU

If indeed your board will take AM2+, then this would do you nicely: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103644&cm_sp=DailyDeal-_-19-103-644-_-Product Does not come with a heat sink, which is good, you can get a real one and save yourself a few bucks. I would check the CPU suppo...

Re: Stratagies for a noob

I'm so getting the fucking expansions. Protoss and zerg is just so much more fun than Terran in multiplayer. ALSO, you can throw down a gas early to give your opponent the hint that you are cheesing, but then cancel it halfway through then go about normally while he continues to make units but not ...

Re: New Map zf_zombiemall *BETA*

Hm, naming yourself "webmaster" and then pm'ing all of us about this thread. Now, call me crazy, but that probably isn't the best way to get us to use your map. Additionally, I dont see a steam name or id on your profile. srsly? =| (wait, did anyone else get a message from this guy?) EDIT: my mista...

Re: Gameboy Advance hacking?

haha I haven't actually tried dumping a rom onto a cartridge, so I don't know much about that. You could simply buy one off the internet, I know http://www.gameboy-advance-roms.com/ has 'em. I always play my GBA ROMs on my DS, I use TTDS myself. The best Hex Editing program IMO is WinHex32. simple ...

Re: Guest Passes

My friend just got two retail copies at a pretty big discount (30% off each) and sold one to me. I should have a guest pass once I go and get the box from him. He's only been able to send me the key so far.

Re: Gameboy Advance hacking?

I've hacked, mutilated an translated loads of ROMs, including the GBA. I'm quite experienced with Hex Editing. What do you need to know? also, making pokémon hacks isn;t fun anymore because there's so many tools out which makes 13-years-old able to do it :/ Believe, I did it when I was 13. That sim...

Gameboy Advance hacking?

Being a bit of a electronic enthusiast, I always love to mess with things that end up being somewhat difficult to mess with. Recently, I've decided to mess with my Gameboy Advance. Its turned out to be very interesting. So far, I've been able to understand a good amount of its internal stuff (go to ...

Good call. But pretty much anything online charges tax in CAL, it's still cheaper than in-store.
My monitor and chassis were actually much cheaper in a store (not even counting shipping).

Re: new graphics card

http://www.newegg.com Go nowhere else. Although once in a blue moon TigerDirect is cheaper. Just as long as you don't live in California. We get charged sales tax for online stuff too. BTW, a sales tax increase of 1.1% in a very short time (2.1% in the area next to me) turns out to be a lot in the ...

Re: Stratagies for a noob

derr hurr... I wanted to play zerg too, then my trial ran out. I'm iffy on buying the game, since I'm pretty sure that I'll only be able to play with those who have the same crap-packs as me =P (seeing as I plan on buying none of them, I guess I'll be in a pickle when some of my friends do...)

Re: Starcraft 2

I would assume the expansions will cost from 30-40 when they come out to be honest. They will probably add more units like they did with starcraft and broodwar (not entirely sure on this) and war3 and the frozen throne (for sure sure on this), and more campaign there will also be the "you can only ...
