+ - Is energy efficient, green PC hardware worth it?->

mr_sifter (1000807) writes "Many manufacturers have jumped on the eco-bandwagon with "green" branded products — from motherboards to hard disks — but how much power do these products save, and how does the fact they're often slower than other products impact on their claims? In this feature, bit-tech tested CPUs, motherboards, hard disks, SSDs and more to find out. The results are surprising — RAM contributes a lot to power draw, whereas SSDs don't save that much compared to a hard disk."

"To answer a lot of questions; Will BFBC2 PC have dedicated servers the user will control? YES!" "And console (PS3, Xbox360) also has access to host Dedicated servers through BFBC2 Private Matches, eliminating "host with the most" issues." DICE seem to have timed these perfectly, was already a first day buy for me, might pre-order now. Suck it Infinity Ward, you just failed, hard

We're pretty much boned, too late to change anything, guess I'll download it from that piratebay thingie. This is the problem with ActiBlizzard, they know people will pay for WOW many times over, they have all the money they will ever need, now they just like to see how much they can get away with. Sadly, this is one of those times, bend over loyal customers
