I was getting used to video cards being $200 for a mid range and around $300-$350 for a high end card. its a bad economy and they need to stop gouging us. When nvidia comes out with their new line there should be price drops. cause right now AMD is competing with its own current products.

Hey I love the podcasts. I have been downloading them on my iphone right from itunes, but now blackberry (work phone). I can't find the pcper podcast in the blackberry podcast section. How can I get the podcast? I travel a lot and there is nothing better then listening to pcper podcast on a long drive!! Please help!!

And a side note, what happened to the 64GB memory kit that came in for testing? I haven't seen a review for it yet. If you want send it to me and I'll test it out for you.

One more side note. What do you do with products after you test them?

Big fan, Rick.

You guys crack me up. Rather than awkward pauses when Ryan was having audio difficulties, there was awkward, entertaining humor from the rest of the gang. Do not ever change, rly. It keeps the podcast lively and gives it a personality. Great content too, keep up the great work!
