    Welp Enermax finally popped

    Most reviews I'd read talked about a short lifespan of the Enermax Liberty 620W PSU This morning in the middle of playing World Of Warcraft it popped. Smelled the wonderful smell of fried electronics. Wouldn't even think about powering back up. Logged into newegg's website and was JUST...

    Ultra ATA-100 vs ATA-6

    I have a laptop that currently is using a 120GB Seagate Ultra ATA-100 drive. I want to replace it with a 7200RPM drive. Newegg lists most of the drives with ATA-6 and only a 80GB as Ultra ATA-100. Can I buy the ATA-6 drive will it work? FWIW the laptop is a Acer Ferrari 4006Wlmi Turion ML-40.
