lol @ "For maximum thermal performance, the Level 10 adopted the similar aerodynamic criteria that can be rivaled by Formula 1 race cars."

Thermal take makes the biggest pieces of shit on the planet. Every single case I've ever got from them was cheap ultra thin flimsy garbage. Unfortunately with the death of PC gaming, they are preying on the few die hard gamers that remain.

Death of PC gaming?

With MMO's like WoW and games starting to use Physx?

Games run smoother on a pc, only disadvantage is of course it costs more to build a computer then to buy an xbox360 or ps3.

I dont think it's growing but it's certainly not dying. Least with MMO's.

more importantly, it's ugly.
best case ever: antec three hundred, can usually be picked up for under $50.

true, it's better looking. p182 is the gunmetal one, looks really nice.

the three hundred runs cooler though.

Ever heard the saying, "if you're not growing, you're dying."?

I was in the gaming industry for quite some time, when you work in the game industry your perspective changes substantially. It's all business. And when PC games cost 2x as much to produce, 10x more to support, and bring you on average 15-20% of the income as console games - you can do the math. However, RTS's and the more sophisticated RPG's have a home on PC's for now, and probably the next decade - that's a certainty.

Actually never heard of that saying and don't believe in that saying. Dying off to me is not making the latest games available for PC's and Nvidia and ATI killing their R&D for home systems.
