Re: 6- or 8-core processor for new computer?

I would rather go with Intel, but a quad-core is $100 more than the FX-8350 (the one I'm pondering), and the motherboards tend to cost more, too. Still have a lot more to buy for this new build, and...

6- or 8-core processor for new computer?

Gathering parts for a new computer, but I'm not yet sure about the CPU. I'm going with AMD (only because of the price), and I wanted to aim high and get an 8-core FX processor running at 4 GHz....

Re: Philip Seymour Hoffman has died

Saw the headline at ComingSoon.net. Truly stunned. One of the all-time greats. Man, is he missed!



Well, Hoffman died of a heroin overdose, and I don't see anyone advocating for its...

Is dying SATA port a sign of further trouble?

First, the pertinent specs: My motherboard is an ASUS A8V Deluxe, purchased about 2005. Has two SATA controllers, VIA and Promise.

I discovered recently that one of the ports on the Promise...

Re: Star Trek Into Darkness Preorder Up (Fall 2013)

Probably no definitive answer yet, but I figured I'd ask, anyway.

That TrekCore article mentions the importance of the Digital Download code that comes with the Into Darkness Blu-ray. It says that...

Re: Man of Steel (Snyder, 2013) The Reviews Thread (Part II)

Whatever value this may have, I picked up the Man of Steel novel and glimpsed at the end. The movie didn't have this explicit narrative, obviously, but the book shows that Kal El was very concerned...

Re: Stephen King's Under The Dome - Spielberg Produced - CBS

Interesting concept, though certainly brings to mind The Simpsons Movie, as another poster noted.

Re: TITANIC 3D Blu-ray 4-disc collector's edition

On what do you base the information that these will be 5-disc sets? Nothing I've seen has indicated any number yet.

Re: TITANIC in 3D (1997/2012, Cameron) April 6 2012

Agreed. Agreed. Agreed.

The 3D was rendered with care. It convincingly transformed a 2D film into a 3D experience. I quite appreciated the work that went into it. Though, at the same time, it was...

Re: Terminator blu ray compared to DVD?

It looked to have been given a teal touch in preview clips, but having seen it in 3D now, I can report that the color grading is still very '90s. It looked nothing like the overdone teal-and-orange...

Re: TITANIC 3D Blu-ray 4-disc collector's edition

It must be, sadly. It's convincingly done, but they obviously wouldn't put out something like this so far in advance. About a year too early, really.

Why not? :) Pick it up, take a look. I wanted to get a feel for it. I'm a sucker for nice packaging, and like I said earlier, I love the design.
