    I know it can drive 4 screen, but I'm trying to figure out if there's any resolution / refresh rate restrictions.

    1080ti Confused about how many monitors I can drive

    I'm getting a used 1080ti off craigslist later today. Currently I have 3 x Dell U2312HM monitors. I'd like to get one fairly high end 1440p monitor (Asus PG279QR, Asus 278QR, Acer XB271HU), Since I often work at home I'd like to 4 monitors total in this type of config: x (youtube, movies)...

    Mined Cards vs. "New" Cards from Retailers

    How does warranty transfer work? I found someone locally that will sell evga sc 1080ti for $500. He said I can stress test and return if I find any issues during testing so seems like a good deal.

    Need Advice on Server Build

    I built an HTPC a few months ago and am currently running a Flex Raid setup with 3 x 2TB drives. Since one of the drives is a parity drive I have 4TB of usable space. Unfortunately, I'm already down to about 1TB of usable space. (400+ compressed Blu-ray movies and a bunch of long TV series...

    Is there a better 32" LCD-TV than the Sony 32EX400?

    Any chance we can get pics of this setup in action? I've been interested in getting a new display for awhile but always miss out of the Dell U2311H deals. This TV sounds like it has some potential as well.

    Need mobo/cpu suggestion for low/mid range system

    I've been building computers most of my life, but they've always been fairly high end since I'm a gamer. My parent's computer is still running on a 1.8GHZ Athlon single core processor with 1.5GB of DDR. They've had it for atleast 4 years or more. They've asked me to build them a new...

    Another help me select my HTPC components thread

    I may record a show here or there. I'm curious. If I want it to be transcoded, do programs do that on the fly, or do you have to set that up after it's been recorded? I was thinking if I did record uncompressed video I could set it up to transcode while I'm sleeping. Unless of course it...

    Another help me select my HTPC components thread

    Oh, it's not actually an external drive. I just have it in an enclosure for now. I hadn't decided yet if I was going to put the drive in my Quad Core box or not, so I've been using it in an enclosure. Would the 9150e be a better choice of processor?

    Another help me select my HTPC components thread

    So after spending awhile contemplating the HTPC vs PS3 I think I've decided on a HTPC. I'm not really that interested in console gaming anymore and I'd like the ability to play random anime series encoded in various formats the PS3 doesn't support. This will be used strictly as a HTPC, no...

    Blu-ray player or PS3?

    I'm a complete HD n00b so bear with me. Are you saying that if I built an HTPC with a LG Blu-ray drive, I'd have to replace it to get 2.0 support? There's no way to flash the firmware of a blu-ray optical drive? Or is the type of movies you can play dependent on the software you're using...

    Klipsch speakers

    I didn't know that about the Denon being so bright. Thanks for that info. I will have to keep the RB-51's/Yamaha 361 in mind. I have also been contemplating the RF-82 Floorstanders. They cost 200 each, but could be worth it in the long run. Would the sub Yamaha 361 or 461 provide enough...

    Klipsch speakers

    I think I'm going to go ahead and get the RB-51's. I'm gonna demo them at work today before deciding for sure. I'm only planning on having a 2.0 setup since this will be in my bedroom and not the living room. In terms of recievers I was thinking of keeping it below 300. I work at Best Buy...

    I think the problem may have gone away. Not sure if it was reinstalling flash or tweaking the drivers but things seem to be working better now. Will have to do some more extensive testing when I get home from school.

    asus eee

    So I installed the audio drivers recommended above and clocked my CPU up to 900MHZ, and the youtube videos are still really choppy. If the RAM I'm getting on Tuesday doesn't clear up the issue I'm going to try reinstalling the OS.

    asus eee

    Do you need to do anything special to have the CPU running at 900MHZ? I thought it showed up as that in device manager. I'll have to check when I get home from work. I'll also need to change the audio drivers.

    Been messing around with my Eee some while I wait for my SDHC card and RAM to show up. I'm enjoying it so far for the most part. Only thing that's bothering me is the fact that youtube playback is incredibly choppy. The sound stutters quite a bit just trying to listen to a song. Will this...

    ASUS Eee PC 4G: Questions

    There's guides for installing XP on eeeusers.com. You are either going to boot from a flash drive or have to get an external CDROM drive in order to install XP. RAM install is as simple as opening the case and swapping out the memory.

    asus eee

    After reading all the positive feedback I've decided to pick up an Eee this weekend. Since I just finished building my Core2Quad rig, I sold my 17" Sager as I don't need 2 power machines. Got 2GB of G.Skill and a 16GB SDHC card coming from newegg already. I also already nlited a Windows XP...

    asus eee

    I've been doing some research online and haven't found a definitive answer. If you install Windows XP on the Eee does it support the native resolution of 800 x 480, or do you have to scroll in order to see everything?
