I almost pulled a muscle laughing so hard during the Couchmaster section. The hosts + everyone in the chat room...sidesplitting!

Great show as always!

During the live podcast you mentioned about a contest for a set of gaming headset. Was there suppose to be an article that we enter via?

Great show you guys, any info on when Haswell will ship, or is this already under NDA?

Great Show as always. I was very interested in the Frame rating discussion (esp. about the AMD eyefinity+crossfire vsync issue) and the 4TB drive.

i joined but never expected the show to be
as funny as it interesting technically.

Now every time Josh talks im waiting for a
"that's what she said" joke to be thrown,
for some reason, no luck yet. (duck face) :-)

ill be posting it on my local tech forum.

Grate Show Guys!

sharing the info in local forum:
(got Ricochet about the new frame metering testing)
was expected :-)

I like to see you in YouTube. Also,thanks

Good show despite the network issues. I'm seriously getting into the frame rating work. Kudos, Ryan. It's nice to see that it's not all about fps, but quality fps. As a computer and gaming enthusiast, I think we all knew it was there, but it's good to see some actual data that shows it.

Can't wait for the post show live gaming to happen again. Good times.

Put my name in the hat for the Roccat gaming headset, please.

The show is great. It will sound even better with the Roccat Kave Real 5.1 Gaming Headset. Very informative. Caught you on Linus Tech Tips last night.

Framerate is a great idea and I have hope that nvidia and ati will use the info to drive innovation. It is good to hear that ati is listening and talking about addressing the issues.
If this is the right place, please put my name in the hat for roccat 5.1 headphones.

thanks and keep up the good work.

So... I'd love to win that roccat headset. I'm still using my old logitech that came with the unreal tournament 2k4 special edition!
