Magic the Gathering TCG

04 October 2012 - 10:33 PM

Anyone here play enough Magic the Gathering to answer a few questions for a noob parent whose children are getting into the game?  They play against their friends at lunch, I doubt they will ever get into tournaments or anything serious.

I have played other TCGs so I understand basics like common, uncommon, rare and foil cards. Here are my questions; hopefully someone has some advice:

I have seen new decks from third, fourth and fifth edition for sale.  Does edition matter for playability?

Is sticking to complete 60 card theme decks a pretty good idea?

Is the deck builders kit a useful set?

I have seen things called Intro Decks and others called Event Decks.  Do those designations mean anything?  Are intro decks junk and event decks copies of tournament decks or something like that?

Currently they each have one deck from a duel deck pack (izzet vs golgari).  Do you have any suggestions for Christmas/Birthday gifts?  

I often see bulk card sales with "no lands" and other sets of "only lands".  Whats up with "lands" and should that affect any purchase decisions?

AMD losing even low end CPU competition

14 February 2012 - 11:54 PM

For the first time ever as far as I know, tomshardware's "Best gaming CPU for the money" has NO AMD CPUs!!!  I guess the new Pentium Gs are able to beat Athlon IIs, which has taken even the low end CPU market from AMD.

Their recommendations this month are:
Pentium G630 $80 - previously ruled by the AMD Athlon IIx3
Pentium G860 $100 - previously dominated by the AMD Athlon IIx4 or Phenom IIx3
Core i3-2120 $120 - previously dominated by AMD Phenom IIx4s
Core i5-2400 $190
Core i5-2500K $230
