So I decided to play another game on my PS3, but then it says I need to update the game before I play, so I was like okay. Then the DL started, and it says 1/2 files, and I noticed that it's an 772 MB update. WTF? That's a huge update. This is going to take me an hour or so...

Yeah thats an annoying thing about the Ps3,Updates are friggin' huge and take forever to download,especially over wifi. On Another note looking at 5 Cars tommorow plus i scored a Samsung U10 for only $150. It's funny when you have been saving for such a long time,you spend it SO easily...

I've placed a few orders with SVC and never had a problem with any of them. The recertified OCZ PSU I bought is running just fine.

What's the difference between the StealthXStream 600W and the GameXStream 600W?

After a quick Google, they told me the GameXStream uses better internals, so the 12V are better. Micro Center has one for $60, and it also has the 1 year limited warranty. I don't know whether to go with Micro or SVC. Micro would be nice because if I brought it home, and it doesn't work, I can just go back and return it.

That's a definite plus. No waiting for shipping.

Yeah, seems like getting from Micro Center is the better way. It costs $10 for UPS ground (1-7 days) on SVC. So it would be total of $50. I don't know if they will make me pay for shipping if it was defective, then that would be another $10. Micro will just cost me $65 (after tax).

Their DLPs are freaking awesome, but they have this weird X effect on the screen if you are really close to the screen.

Still, I would love to have their 83 inch model. They're all 120Hz now too.

I have the StealthXStream 600w and while it may not be the most powerful PSU Out there it's quite reliable,it's been through several power surges (When i havn't been home) where other appliances have been damaged,this psu just keeps on chugging.

Is it just me or if Firefox getting really Retarded. It started causing Windows Explorer to crash and it was lagging on large websites (Ebay For Instance) and just became laggy. Im on Opera 10.5 at the moment and i must say it's quite slick...
