Meh, if the Fab Faux can afford the real thing... ;) I think he had a bigger band (and Linda) when I saw him at MSG ages ago.

Have been watching the Vega happenings/rumors but picked up a G-Sync monitor a few weeks ago so have my sights firmly on a 1080 Ti now - thinking Strix for the dual HDMI. My Vive actually does pretty...

This one (San Andreas) was a real blast to watch, non-stop immersion and slam - loads of fun. It helps to think of it as a ride, as opposed to a film. It's an awesome ride. Will watch again!

Watched this last night and thoroughly enjoyed it - what a blast. More a ride than a movie! And even the plot was fun as my cousin and I gave it the MST3k treatment - such rich source material. ;)

Funny you mention that, I remembered I have to stop at BB later anyway so I cancelled my Amazon order and will pick it up there. Same price and I have to pay tax either way.

That would make for a lopsided front stage, Seth, I couldn't do that to you.

Keith - I picked up the 3D version - only $8 more for the extra disc. May lend itself well to it.

Funny, the mono vinyl box is the polar opposite of a 5.1 BD audio, yet I shall...
