    First Laptop - help?

    My parents and grandparents graciously offered me a laptop as a grad present, and I have $600 to work with here. (I can use more, but it;s OOP) What am I looking for? Uses: Firefox. MS Word. AIM. WMP. uTorrent. That's all I'd use it for. I still have a desktop for when I move...

    Plexi Questions...

    Okay, so for a mod I'm working on, I plan to use painted plexi and to etch my school logo into it. This will be on the bottom of my case, and I was thinking of etching the logo into the black paint, so it will have a haze on it when I have it backlit. But I was wondering, should I etch the...

    Building a PC For a Friend...

    Thanks for the heads up on the PSU, I'll look for another route. And the CPU won't be updated soon. He generally buys a new PC every 2-3 years, and doesn't upgrade in that period. (Except for maybe drives, and graphics) For the video, I'm starting to lean more towards the 9600GT...

    No Images In Browsers?

    Whelp, I'm attempting to fix my grandfather's PC at the moment, and I'm at a loss. The internet won't load images. IE6 or Firefox, every page has a white background and any other images are white as well. If I navigate to the URL of an image, it will load, but not on a page. By no means am I a...

    Forget Crysis! GH3 FTW!!!!

    I don't see how it's a 'premium' price for a controller; it costs just as much as any other wireless controller for a console. (Give or take a few bucks) And as far as the game goes, waiting to pick it up when it drops for the PC. :D
