    [HOT]Macbook Air (13.3", i5 1.8Ghz, 4GB Ram, 128GB SSD) - $999 @ Frys

    First attempt so I'm not sure if I'm doing this right. Granted this isn't for everyone since they operate out of California, I ended up having to bug my buddy to go grab one for me. Model # MD231LL/A $200 off MSRP! Availability is a little on...

    Dashcat2 Build

    Vast improvement. I went a little OCD while my buddy had his out. :) (My hands hurt)

    Dashcat2 Build

    Looking very nice, my buddy recently acquired an 04 GTP and we are awaiting the intake gaskets to tackle that nasty oil pool on the lower intake manifold area. During some research I thought it wasn't until 03-04 that they started using aluminum lower intake manifolds? Perhaps the previous...

    It's been just about ten years since this beauty....

    Jesus, talk about a trip down memory lane. First computer I ever built... Abit NF7-S v2 Athlon 2500+ M (Barton) ATI 9700 Pro WD Raptors (2x36Gb) 1Gb Corsair XMS PC3200 (512MBx2 at 2-2-2-5) God that rig cost me a small fortune but I loved every minute of it!

    GTX 680 3 monitors, different resolutions

    Not to threadjack but does the same hold true with the 570 HD's since they have 2x DVI, HDMI, and Display Port? Or do the 570's have the same limitation as the rest of the 500 series?

    Call me when the next generation Video Cards Arrive

    I've always been a bit behind the curve, my 8800GTX just died two days ago so I bought a 570sc. There's a good bet when the next gen comes out I'll just get a second 570 and call it a day. I don't know, I just haven't gone out of my way to buy a new release card since my old 6800GT. Perhaps...

    Just bought a Neo2 Platinum...what should i know about it?

    Its a Winchester and it taps out at around 2.65Ghz. There seems to be another problem, the 1.c bios seems to have killed my nForce networking Controller. Everytime I tried to set the MAC to Pin Strap it wouldn't saved the setting... so I flashed back to the 1.4b1, reset the cmos, pulled the...

    Connect rackmounted HTPC to TV 50-100 feet away?

    Sorry for not contributing to this thread but... HOLY SHIT. Actually on second thought I can sort of contribute. If I were you I would get a whole bunch of xboxes for cheap and softmod them and put XBMC on them. Once you get one setup exactly how you like it you can easily image the...

    Just bought a Neo2 Platinum...what should i know about it?

    Actually I just noticed the new one based off of the 1.C from the guys site. The 1b one didn't prove to be much of a success for me but you never know. I'll let you know in a little while. Edit - Nothing, I tried both the Standard and the TCCD version. Niether of them showed any...

    1.41mod has given me the best clocks. My TCCD has been up to 320 but I'm limited by the cpu at the moment. Oh yeah, and disable "nv/ati speed up"
