    Sent mobo for RMA due to faulty NIC, they returned same mobo still broken

    I have had bad experiences with Asus, just a heads up, their RMA can be funky... I was sent back the same broken board three times, it had a retention mechanism glued to the back of the socket....and it was not my original board...Go figure.

    Google: Bing Is Cheating, Copying Our Search Results

    Definitely one of the funniest supposedly accurate and or substantiated online reports I have ever seen. Using the same browser? Of course it would pay off to use browser history in your search results, you would be silly not to. /thread

    Will adding spare 8800GTS 512 be worth it?

    Almost certainly, an 8800GTS is fairly powerful when compared to a GTX 260! Also, consider the draw backs, if any.

    2x4GB Ripjaws at newegg 104 - 15 promo code, till 2/07

    Decent deal, the Gskill eco's are nicer sticks, and for $20 more, they are what I got. Unless you wish to get 16 GB of RAM, two sets of 2 x2GB Gskill Eco 1.35V 1600 6 7 6 6 21 for $60 a piece are the way to go, in my opinion

    I need a laptop to run Linux on

    Almost any laptop you can imagine has compatible drivers, you will just need to look around a little bit. What are the other specificaitons of what you would like? Gaming and Linux tend not to mix too well, so beware.
