Hey! I very recently decided to get myself a 3DS, as the topic title says I haven't been active on the gaming front for a while and I'd really appreciate some recommendations about games I've might have missed. So far I've bought:

  • Zelda Ocarina of Time 3D (had to get this ofc)
  • Advance wars Dual strike (big fan of the series on gba)
  • Chrono trigger (accidental discovery when I was buying advance wars, seems good as I love rpgs)
  • Mario and luigi: bowsers inside story (Good rating on here and I really enjoyed superstar saga)
  • GTA Chinatown wars (rated very highly on here and got it with a huge local discount)

As you see most of the games are DS games, any 3DS recommendations, or more DS games that should not be missed what-so-ever?

Another series I really enjoyed on the GBA was Golden Sun, anything like that would be really appreciated:)

Here is the conclusion of a pretty thorough test of custom coolers. The tests were performed on an overclocked Intel I7 920 :)

As you inspect the graph, remember: Lower is better.

Corsair Dominator is really great RAM, but also very expensive and not worth the price-difference from something like OCZ Gold for gaming. So for pure gaming, price vs performance, I'll go with the OCZ Gold.

I'm currently working on getting parts for my new computer. I had originally decided on the ASUS P6T Deluxe V.2 motherboard, but as I'm going online to buy it I accidently stumble upon a completely new motherboard from ASUS which I've never encountered before and seems to have been released just recently: The ASUS P6TD Deluxe motherboard (that's right, with a D)

Now, just to eliminate all confusion (because when I searched various forums for this many people seemed to misunderstand): I do NOT mean the original P6T Deluxe mobo, there seems to now be three versions:

1. The original ASUS P6T Deluxe motherboard

2. The ASUS P6T Deluxe V.2 motherboard (with the removed SAS controller)

3. The ASUS P6TD Deluxe motherboard

Now, I know the difference between one and two, but what about the third and the first two? Information on it seems hard to come by, someone mentioned some new system for heat dissipation that's better at channelig heat away from the CPU (dubbed Extreme-something). Does anyone have any information on this? Any information or links at all would be helpful :) Thanks!

Looks great, especially now that you also have the Samsung F3 there. Though I'd recommend you to change the cooler too. Check this test and pick one of the best ones I'd say.

What's your budget in NOK? (I'm norwegian)

I recommend checking this site: Link

They have a lot of great and thorough tests of monitors, they give you all the info you'd ever need. The link above directly gives you the list of the best 22" monitors in some different categories which they've decided on from their testing. They also have a feature on their site that lets you directly compare two and two screens, and I don't mean specs. I mean EVERYTHING, like color range to viewing angle to gaming quality, I'll add the link for that feature below:

Link 2

From what you've told us here I'd go for the Dell 2209WA.

You can get it for roughly 2000 NOK if you're fast and get it from here. Seems like it's some short-time offer.

I've done a lot of research concerning this and I live in Norway too. You've got a lot of good advice here already, so I just thought I'd help out with the buying and assembling part. First of all, if you've decided to assemble it yourself then use prisguide.no to get the cheapest prices (unless you're buying overseas which I don't recommend), if not, then use netshop.no. They have a great computer-assembly system where they put together your computer with all the parts you've bought, with only 300 nok (about 50 bucks) added to the total price of the parts, and they throw in an extra 3 year-warranty on the whole thing. Just don't use the build-a-computer stuff on komplett or something, that's a complete rip-off if you look at the price vs price for parts

[QUOTE="WeaponMasterX"]Mobo: ASUS P6T Deluxe V2Gr33nHippo
The ASUS P6T Deluxe is same price as the V2, and I think I remember reading the first version is better? Not sure, maybe someone else knows.

Really? I wasn't aware of this, I always read that the V2 was recommended? Someone who can clarify this please? :)

That build looks solid, will max all games.

I'm no experts on PSU, but going modular is always good.

You don't NEED a sound card, it wont be a great investment.

Sorry I couldn't be of more help, I know what it can feel like to have no one answer your questions :(Ikavnieks

Thank you :) Just getting a reassuring nod that I'm at least in the right direction helps alot :) And thanks for the advice, I'll get the modular PSU and probably wait with the sound card ;)

I'd recommend this case instead ;). The 5870 will fit if the top hard drive cage is taken out http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811129061&Tpk=p183

UltimateGamer95

So what's the difference of that compared to the Antec 300? For the price of the P183, he could get an HAF 932, which could easily fit a 5970.



Because he said that he wanted a more plain looking case and the P183 is perfect for that ;)

You have a point, Mao. But yeah, what UltimateGamer said is right, I'd prefer a neutral case, nothing too fancy, but is it really so few good choices for a good gaming case? Ok, so lets say I open the search a bit wider then, basic lights are ok if the case is really that good :P I just prefer not having a rainbow under my desk while working on it. What do you suggest, Mao? And UltimateGamer? Everything goes now :P As long as the quality is top-notch ;p
