Had a Radeon 7850 HD for a couple years and it crapped out on me.
Haven't kept up too much with CPU technology since. Need a quick graphics card recommendation. Preferably under $200.
Should I just go with another 7850 or take a step up?...
| Money Talk|| Lottery Pool - Tax Implications - dcrews on 2/19/14 at 3:50 pm|
I was put in charge of the lottery pool at my office. We have roughly 20-25 people who play once a week (twice a week when the lump sum amount hits nine figures).
In Louisiana, as a pool/group, what would be the most tax efficient way to claim these winnings?
I'm trying to research it here at...

| Fantasy Sports Board|| Start Carolina Defense? - dcrews on 12/22/13 at 9:32 am|
I know the Saints haven't been stellar on the road. Pair that with the fact that Carolina has a top 5 front 7 in the nfl and it seems like a no brainer to start the Carolina defense.
The only thing holding me back is the fact that they got rocked when the played the Saints earlier this year and ...

| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Mental Weakness - dcrews on 12/2/13 at 8:20 pm|
Generally I would think this is a result of coaching, but Payton doesn't strike me as mentally weak and neither does Brees. Why is it our offense completely crumbles and takes a 180 degree turn on the road? There seems to always be MUCH less intensity, heart and mental toughness away from home.

Lately when it's come to console, I've played nothing but sports games (NCAA, Madden, NBA 2k), but I want to get back into a different genres.
I want to start on a new final fantasy game. The last one I played was FF 9. It was ok. I absolutely LOVED VII.
I was looking at reviews for XIII. Lo...

If an individual who is a citizen/resident of Louisiana is working 40+ hours per week, but isn't making what equates to minimum wage, is that legal? (Note: Individual is in their early/mid 20's)
Federal Law states that minimum wage is $7.25/hr. ...

| More Sports Board|| Anyone betting the NBA All star game? - dcrews on 2/17/13 at 6:15 pm|
Saw some talk of the total on twitter (o/u 295).
Since 2000, the game has gone over that number only TWICE.
Granted the point total has been progressing upward since 2008 (last year was the only year in that 5 year period that it went above the current betting total of 295. It was 301)

| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Offensive Line Troubles - dcrews on 9/23/12 at 4:22 pm|
While I agree the officiating hasn't been stellar, we aren't going to win many games with the offensive line play we've had. Drew rarely gets to set his feet and get this offense into rhythm. The majority of the pass plays feel panicked.
What's the major difference between this year and last yea...

For the last several days I've heard some high praise for the Florida State defensive line (in terms of both depth and talent). This morning, David Pollack (of whom I am not a fan) made a statement about the Seminole defensive line being outright better than LSU's line, which leads me to ask the ran...

Why is it that we like to recruit players and shuffle them around to other positions that they don't normally play? Russel Shep is a prime example. Highly touted recruit, and yet he has practically been a non factor his entire LSU career (or at least he certainly hasn't lived up to expectation, thro...
