    Need insight on wireless speakers

    Hello! So I've had my speakers for the good part of 15 years I'm thinking. It's a 5.1 system, but I've always only used it as 2.1 due to not really having the best place for a 5.1 setup. Wires running across the floor isn't really amazing. I'm moving soon, so my plan is to get a better gaming...

    A quick question about 120Hz monitor

    Hello everyone! What I'm basicly trying to figure out, is if a guy like me really needs a 120Hz monitor. I'm a fairly casual gamer. I do play a lot, but I hardly ever play against any other players. If I play multiplayer, it's with people, and not against them. I do like my games flowing...
