    FS: Late 2009 Macbook Unibody w/ Upgraded RAM and HDD

    Heatware! There are a few things that make this machine different from stock: - The battery has swelled pushing the left half of the track pad up ~1mm and making the left side difficult to button click, however it works just fine if you do tap to click or use a mouse. - The battery still...

    Ratpadz XT $25 w/Free Shipping

    After using my Ratpadz XT for 4-5 years, I had begun to notice that the most used (upper left) corner of the mousepad had started to get a rougher texture than the rest of the pad, specifically, the rest of the surface has an icy friction, but this corner was more like fine sand paper when...

    The point is to hide visibility of the cables, not reveal them.

    Steelseries Kinzu $15.99 FS

    Hmmm, I might buy this so I can play Starcraft 2 in university.. The price brings me in but if that acceleration problem is noticeable I would probably not want it.

    best mechanical keyboard for gaming?

    I just got a Filco brown tenkeyless the other day and I'm basically typing this post because I love how it feels to type on this keyboard lol. It feels like a dream to type on and the keys are 100% responsive. It is a bit loud though, hard/fast typing with someone else in the room will surely...

    Ratpadz - shipping is still FREE!

    IIRC, it's mailed in a large paper/cardboard shipping envelope. It was also shipped to my house, not Po box..

    I have an HT Omega Claro + that I have been trying to sell, it's a very good card and I'm selling it for super cheap.

    My monitor doesn't pass through digital audio to its coax output

    Meh, well I just ordered a cable to go coax directly to my desktop, so I don't know if that means I skip out on the ATI sound drivers. Are the ATI drivers better for gaming than say, onboard realtek? I use an Asus VH242H, and basically from everything I've tried the coax output on the back of...

    My monitor doesn't pass through digital audio to its coax output

    My ATI 5770 has HDMI out to my monitor, and the monitor can pass through a coax connection to my DAC, which then play through my headphones. I have windows set to output all to the ATI HDMI sound channel and the sound only plays through the monitor speakers, and doesn't pass through the coax...

    Motorola SB6120 Extreme Docsis 3 cable modem

    I've been watching the price for a few months now, ever since I missed it when it went on sale for $60 I think, so it's been lower.

    Haha thanks for the compliment. I drew those when I was bored in a few summer classes last summer. My mom does more painting/craftsy stuff, and said if I did another drawing like those on a larger size surface, she would paint it. Though I'm lazy and I never really draw in my free time unless...

    Ya seriously, people reserved spots on the first page and they never got around to actually adding pictures. Waste of space IMO.

    Post your "rate my cables" here

    I tried to leave the UV cables out for show, but did my best to hide everything else. This is in an Antec 900 by the way, and I think I did it semi-right without cutting any holes or doing any huge modifications.

    Upgrading from 8800gt

    I'm coming from an 8800GT, and I think the next reasonable step up is gonna be the 5770.

    What's the next best step to improve my audio setup?

    I guess you're right, but it was really just funny because he works at a hifi audio and home theater store, and he's recommending me a brand that his store doesn't even support when the store slogan is 'if we don't like it, we don't carry it'.

    What's the next best step to improve my audio setup?

    Lol...So I've been calling around places for the Denons and one retailer didn't carry them, but the guy left a comment saying this: "We don't carry those, I can order them for you if you'd like, but I wanna just say that you should try out the Beats by Dr. Dre, I think they carry them at Best...

    What's the next best step to improve my audio setup?

    For reference: here is what my desk looks like. As you can see it's a little different than most other setups because the desk is a corner table built into 2 walls.

    What's the next best step to improve my audio setup?

    I've been doing a ton of research since I started this topic, and I hear a lot of good things about the Denon AH-D2000s, and I am prepared to do a little modding and a lot of burning in to get the most out of them. Under the conditions I am present in, the most I am going to spend is at a firm...

    What's the next best step to improve my audio setup?

    The Klipsch are on craigslist for $50, and considering my mother is offering me $50 for my current speakers (more than enough, and I don't have to deal with selling+shipping). That means that I don't lose anything upgrading to speakers in the same 'league' but a few steps above. Either way, I...

    What's the next best step to improve my audio setup?

    Well, I have a guitar center near me, but I haven't taken a good look at their speakers and headsets that they have for demo (I've been there a few times but haven't seen anything). I also have a place called 'Deluxe Audio' just down the street from me, but I have no idea what to expect when I...

    What's the next best step to improve my audio setup?

    After a lot of digging around, I think I am going to pass down my Z-2300s to my mother, pick up a Klipsch ProMedia 2.1 system from craigslist for dirt cheap. Then, I'm going to replace my HD555s with Denon AH-D2000s. Also, I almost forgot to add that I bought a CMOY altoids amp from Ebay to...

    New Headphones Question

    I'm not positive, but I'm pretty sure that I read somewhere that the only major difference between HD555s and HD595s is that there is a plastic shield removed from behind the drivers, allowing more soundstage and quality at the cost of more sound leakage. A few months ago I actually opened up...

    Torchlight for $5 but better yet - Titan Quests for $10 on Steam

    I played Titan Quest when it first came out, and while it was a good addicting game, eventually there comes a point where you are just running through the level spamming your abilities to kill everything in your way without stopping. Idk if that's the case with any other game like that though.

    Here's a review that has some benchmarks compared to the non-plus version of the card, and there appears to be a little difference: http://benchmarkreviews.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=77&Itemid=1&limit=1&limitstart=5 Either way, it's an amazing card.

    What's the next best step to improve my audio setup?

    I use my speakers for gaming and bass heavy music, and I use my headphones for appreciating sound quality, so if I were to upgrade one of them it would be the headphones. However I'm quite partial to my HD555s because they are so damn comfy and I didn't really intend to replace them, at least...
