I just bought a Geforce GTX 460 SE 1GB (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130591&cm_re=GTX_460_1Gb-_-14-130-591-_-Product), but I know that my old PSU, at 300W, is to weak to run it. I don't want to spend a lot of money and found a few PSU's that I "think" would work already (I know very little about PSU's), but I don't know if they will fit in my machine. The one I have now is a Bestec ATX-300-12Z. So which of these do you guys think would be best? Would the cheapest work alright or should I do a more expensive one?

Here they are (from cheapest to most expensive):

You can get a 460 for less than 150$ if you don't mind MIR'sMonsieurX
Really? All the ones I saw were about $20; can you post a link?

I'm thinking about upgrading from my old 8800 GT, and from the research that I've done these two cards came up the most, the GTS 450 (460 is out of my price range) and the HD 5770. I've never used an ATI card before so I'm a little iffy about getting one, and I don't want to spend more than $150. So what do you guys think, which would be better?

So your PS3 wont sign into the PS Network? Have you tried an Internet Connection Test in Settings > Network Settings. Your internet works fine on a computer right?


I have tried that and it says that is failed to find my IP address and stops after that. The internet works fine because I'm using it right now, and my 360 works fine aswell. My internet is also wireless.

I recently bought a PS3 and it was working fine for a few weeks when all of a sudden the internet decided to stop working. This happened a few days ago, but right when I pressed play for the MAG beta it suddenly came back. Now it isn't working again and I've been searching for the past two and a half hours for a fix with no luck.

This is what I have tried to do to fix this:

1. Unplugged my Blue Tooth headset

2. Disabled Media Servers

I have a Motorola SB5101 Modem, Thanks for any help you can give.

should i get arma 1 first? is them multiplayer alive and is the sp alone worth it? johnny27
Last time I was only multiplayer (few weeks ago) there were still a lot of people playing it. The singleplayer is good only if you liked Operation Flashpoint, it had some hard parts but overall pretty fun. I would reccomend it.

If you can get it to work it's great, but it took me about a week of searching in forums before I could install. You may be lucky and it works fine for you though.

Me too, I've played Empire Earth 2 and loved it. But EE3's demo was really really bad, looked OK, but still bad
