Hey guys, I haven't been here in a while, how've you been? Can someone remind me how to post screenshots/images again?

Edit: Never mind I figured it out.

Crysis 1

Bioshock Infinite

@snakeitachi:You don't need anything extra to run a single Nvidia card; if you've got less than 2 PCIe plugins for some reason you're probably looking for molex to PCIe connectors (you'll also need spare 4-pin molex coming from your PSU - most of the time you should have a surplus). These are usually included with the graphics card.

Yes 2 molex pci-e connectors come with it. How do i hook up the molex to my power cable? i just see a shitload of wires coming out the side of it!

The connector should be 4-pin, attaching in a male-female way. Look for the one that is analogous to it.

Updated with GTX 660 Ti. Anyone looking for a card in the $300 range should get this, it's the best card to come out in a while. The factory tuned versions are almost as fast as a GTX 680. Kind of wish I waited a month for this but oh well >.>

I hope they use this as more of a distribution channel than a DRM scheme. I don't want to boot up Steam to use a word processor.

If they incorporate movies and music that would be all the better; the only real competitor in the market right now is iTunes and their software is like something out of the last millennium.

My stuff arrived and I've finished the build. Everything is working fine except one thing: The front of the case (Antec nine hundred) has a blue USB 3.0 cable that I can't find a home for on the motherboard (ASRock Z68 Extreme 3 Gen3). Any idea what I'm supposed to do with that? I'd like to be able to use those top/front usb ports.

The USB headers should be near the bottom of the motherboard, you may need to turn on USB 3.0 in the BIOS afterwards. There should be additional diagrams and instructions in the manual.

Since GB is a business and needs money?

A business that has to alienate its users in order to make money deserves no money.

If you think so, then get off the site. If you are correct, then the site will close down through the natural order of things. 
 
They are clearly doing this out of necessity, not choice. By every metric the site population has gone down the past 2 years. It's not like they're driving Lamborghinis to work everyday and reviewing games on their golden PS3s. 
 
And as mentioned by several others, there's something called adblock which every internet user should be using nowadays anyway. Your individual 0.0001 cents per ad isn't going very far to support them, if you really want to support the site just turn on adblock and sign up for membership. 
 
Basically, ads on the front page is a non-issue on this or any other website.

Since GB is a business and needs money? Worst case scenario is you have ad block to turn it off.

Easily the graphics. Rest of your components are fine for at least another 2-3 years.
