    Senators Want DUI Checkpoint Apps Removed

    I have never seen a DUI checkpoint in my life. If I did I would not take it well even if I was sober. I don't want police hassling and wasting my time for unfounded suspicion. There is a reason we have unreasonable search and seizure as part of our Bill of Rights. With that said I would...

    Kid Arrested For Facebook List that Ranks Girls

    God do I hate disorderly conduct!!! It is one of those laws you can't believe are on the books and somehow survive. It is so general as to be applicable to any and all situations. This kid will absolutely not be found guilty. This is an example of wrongful arrest and overzealous...

    MSI XPower Motherboard / Metro 2033 Giveaway.

    He-Man would have been better off with the XPower because it would have come from XGreyskull and he would have had an XSword and ridden XBattle Cat! As we all know makking something X(blank) makes it more awesome and implies an increase in power.

    GTX 460 without Windows 7?

    What about game data and stuff like that? Is there any way to back that up so that I can not lose all of my save points and other stuff? Most of my software and media I can handle no problem.I do have 2 hard drives so I could just do that back up. I can get windows 7 pro for $30 ($43 with disc).

    GTX 460 without Windows 7?

    Would there be any point to an upgrade to a GTX 460 from an 8800GT if I am still running Windows XP? I have been very wary about upgrading to Windows 7 mainly because I will lose all my files and such from the transfer. I know I should do it anyway. In the same breath anyone have any...

    Is it worth $80 to get another 8800GT for SLI?

    Hmm, that actually sounds like the right idea. Not sure why I didn't think of that!

    Is it worth $80 to get another 8800GT for SLI?

    I have been gaming on my 8800GT for a while now quite happily. It runs almost everything at decent framerates and settings. Right now I game mostly at 1680x1050, but I have a 1080p plasma that it might be cool to game on. Do you think it is worth $80 to get another 8800GT for SLI and get some...

    Slow USB on new MSI GD-65

    So I have windows xp SP3 running on a new Core i5 with an MSI GD-65 mobo. My problem is right now my USB ports are only running at 6MB/s. This is 10x slower than supposed spec, but still faster than 1.1 so I am pretty sure it isn't a driver issue as it says I have Intel enhanced controllers in...

    Blown system?

    I replaced the video card, ram, and cpu with working spares that I had to no avail. Same results. I am quite sure now the board is fried, hopefully it didn't fry my video card or drives as I would like to recycle those into my next comp. I guess I am in the market for a new CPU/MOBO/RAM...
