    udac(gen1) upgrade

    Hey Guys I've had a udac for a few years now but I think its starting to bite the dust. I really liked this unit because i use my KRK rokit monitors more than my headphones and the udac allowed me to switch easily between both, all with the convenience of a volume knob. I'm looking to...

    I think I want to take the dive into water cooling

    I feel its time to step it up from using my TRUE 120 and try a water cooling setup. I've always loved how water setups looked, but was always too scared and too expensive for me to try. Well a few years have now passed, and I think i'll go for it. I want to make this as easy as possible...

    2560x1440 vram limited?

    Hey guys, never thought i'd be saying this, but of all games.. Starcraft II seems to be limited by my system. I have a 6950 1gb, i7 920 @ 4.0ghz, and 12gb ram, so my system really isn't that bad... If I put sc2 on the highest settings possible (extreme), with no aa enabled through CCC, when I...

    Always wanted some KRKs. These are the same rp6, just a limited edition (they look a lot sleeker imo). They're around $70 off retail, and even cheaper than the rp5 model, so i went for it...

    Cherry MX Red recommendations?

    Hey Guys. I currently have a razer blackwidow and although I do like it, it's really loud and need something quieter. I tried the steelseries 6gv2 which has mx black switches and I really liked the switches on that keyboard, but there was none in stock at frys. Then I was reading about cherry...

    Krk rokit rp6 vs swans m10. Good upgrade?

    I currently have a set of Swans m10 and am looking to upgrade to KRK rp6's. Is this even a worthwhile upgrade? My swans sound fine, just itching for a new sound upgrade, but within reason ($400 or so). I feel like the rp5's wont be too much of an upgrade, and rp8's are too big for me, so rp6...

    will xfire 6950's overheat if too close together..?

    I really want to get 2x6950's to use in my x58 motherboard, but have always been put off due to the fact that my pcie slots are too close together. My room gets particularly hot during the summer, and I don't have an AC unit or anything like that. I'm worried that the top card will either...

    Final Fantasy XIII-2!

    Release by next winter! I expect delays, however. I know many of you don't like FF13 in general. I personally liked the game, even though it was very linear and what not. I personally enjoyed every iteration of FF except for 8 and x-2. Definitely looking forward to this sequel. Lightning looks...

    6970 for 5040x1050 eyefinity

    Thinking of getting myself a present this christmas and was wondering if a 6970 would be a good performance boost over a 58701gb version at 5040x1050. How much more fps am i looking at? Crossfire is not an option as I don't like the fan noise/heat, and my motherboard sandwiches the cards too...

    good displayport to vga adapter?

    5040x1050 (1680x3) eyefinity - 1gb vs 2gb

    I'm planning on possibly getting an eyefinity set up with 3 1680x1050 monitors. I was looking at 5850's and 5870s and noticed that there are 1gb and 2gb flavors. Would I need to get the 2gb for my resolution? Also, could I get away with a 5850 with my resolution, or would a 5870 be the way to...

    mx518 v deathadder

    My mouse recently died (microsoft/razer habu) and I went ahead and purchased a logitech mx518. I bought it at frys for $35 +$15 rebate, so $20 overall. However, they also had the razer deathadder on sale for $40. Should I have bought the deathadder rather than the mx518? I just went with the...

    Nec 20wmgx2.. splotches/stains?

    I purchased 2 nec 20wmgx2's refurbed from NEC when they had the winter sale. Since then, I've been noticing some splotches/stains (for lack of a better term) going across the top of the my screen. Is this normal? The screen on the left used to have a bigger splotch towards the top left, but I...

    krk rp5 vs swans m10

    I currently have the swans m10 and really like how they sound. However, the middle woofer issue is pretty annoying as I now have a dual screen set up. Dual wall mount for my lcds is out of the question as well. I just wish that middle woofer didnt have to be on the desk. This is why I want to...

    Sorry for the long post... I got fed up with the noise from the stock cooler of the 4890, so I decided, after a lot of research, to purchase an accelero twin turbo. From everything I've read, people claim that this heat sink works quite well. A lot of people who have the accelero + 4890 leave...

    HWmonitor & 12v voltage?

    I decided to run HWmonitor and was surprised at what I saw for the 12v rail on my corsair hx620. Is this anything to worry about? Or is it just some weird glitch in the software or something. Just want to make sure. My system runs fine if anything. Thanks for any insight.

    Dac Upgrade from x-fi xtremegamer for <$150

    I have swans m10 speakers and love the sound they produce. However, i'm wondering if my xtremegamer soundcard is holding it back any. Is there any external dac under $150 or so that would be better than my x-fi? I listen to music 75%, 25% games, but positional audio doesn't mean anything to...

    I think its about time to add a subwoofer to my Swans m10.

    I saw this Polk Audio PSW10 on sale from newegg's email, but found it cheaper on amazon + no tax for me. Would this be a good sub for my swans for the money, or is there better? Looking at the $120-$150 range including shipping/tax...

    Ghetto bounce flash
