    We REALLY need a tech careers subforum.

    Now is the time...there isn't anything like this on the has the only decent IT careers forum, and it's nothing great. Many [H] readers are hurting for work, and looking to discuss the situation with others...why does Hardocp seem so blind to this fact?

    The BEST online multiplayer PSP game?

    I need a great ONLINE, multiplayer PSP game that I can play while waiting for my girlfriend to get ready to go out! I have Twisted Metal, which is totally cool online, but I need something cool and new (for me)... First person shooters on a PSP don't really do it for me (im an avid UT2k4...

    9700 pro WON'T run COD4 at all?

    I know it doesn't meet the required minimum specs (9800pro), but come on! The game won't even TRY to run. It creates a cryptic error message and then drops me back to the desktop! Does anyone know of a bios hack or overclocking method or SOMETHING that will make this game run on this card...

    Flash Ram for Vista ReadyBoost?

    I want very much to use Vista's "ReadyBoost" feature, due to the 5400rpm drive that shipped with my laptop. But I DON'T want a thumbdrive sticking out of my laptop, waiting to get snapped off like a pretzel! Can anyone recommend a flash memory card that is compatible/fast enough for Vista...

    PSP Games are mostly disappointments...

    I have been out of the console scene for some time now, but last year I bought a PSP. I also bought Twisted Metal for it, and absolutely love it. Unfortunately, I have bought a number of games since then that were rated relatively well in the reviews that I read, and I found them to be...

    Quiet air cooling for an overclocked Socket A?

    Well, its that time of year again...time for me to look at my old machine and try to make it last until I cave in and buy a laptop. Right now I have an old Coolermaster Aero 7+ on my CPU, and this mofo is LOUD and EMBARASSING. All you can hear is that nasty thing whining away, and I feel its...

    How the PPU can be made popular...

    Granted, I know little or nothing about the workings of video or physics cards, but it seems to me that the best way for the PPU to get a foothold in the current market is to allow it to take over the physics of current games. If the PPU could take over the physics in a game such as Unreal...

    I need a quiet, compact, and cheap form of watercooling to keep this rig running until its time to upgrade the whole package. crappy "blower" style air cooling was a novelty when it came out, but it is starting to get tiresome with its loud noise when I am trying to spend an evening with...

    What standard hardware today is just totally not utilized?

    I would put forth that 64-bit processors are totally un-needed at the current moment, particularly because (as far as I am aware) most OEM companies still ship with the 32-bit version of Windows XP. Not only that, but even if you have a 64 bit OS, most, if not all software for it will be...

    Doom 3 Project Mars City case "mod" - is this really case modding?

    Corsair Xpert Memory defeats the purpose of overclocking

    The purpose of overclocking is to obtain higher performance for a lower price. If our hardware such as memory comes with lower specs but also attached to all kinds of "diagnostic" hardware (which will ineveitably raise the price), doesn't this defeat the purpose? Overclocking for the sake of...
