    microSDHC - Where to buy?

    I bought a 16GB pmp and it has a microSD slot. I filled up the internal memory relatively quick, blowing 8GB of that on a single anime series. I had an 8GB microSDHC card that I bought from newegg on sale, but it didn't take long to reach the capacity with high quality video conversions. I...

    Durable Gaming Headset

    like the subject line says, I am looking for a gaming headset that won't self destruct. I am willing to spend money on Sennheiser PC-350s if you tell me they are going to last more than one year. My last two headsets (Skullcandy Gaming Ti and Steelseries 5H) both snapped in the same place, where...

    iTunes - help with recovery

    I built a computer for my brother after some recent upgrades. I installed windows XP on a 40GB HD with the intent to keep this as a dedicated OS drive and then drop in his current HD for media files, games, etc. The night I gave him the PC, I didn t get a chance to set up a shortcut to...

    Biostar T-Series TA790GX XE [mATX]

    I am about to purchase an AMD X2 7750 and I would prefer not to buy the 780G chipset if possible. The only 790GX board in mATX I have seen for sale here in the states is the DFI LanParty JR, and I try to support Biostar whenever possible. I found one place advertising the TA790GX XE, Biostar's...

    UT3 is a steaming pile

    quick rant... UT3 is overrun with hacks. You see the same aimbot users every day and every night, and due to the fact that there are maybe 5 active servers, you really don t have the option of playing elsewhere. Epic has announced that they have an expansion planned, most likely to try to...

    Format locked SDHC

    I am asking for help here because I have searched everywhere else with no luck. I purchased an Eee PC and an 8GB SDHC card. I was following the procedure from a write up to make the SDHC card into a boot device, and now the card is locked. The lock on the card itself is not in the locked...

    my beloved NUUO 550

    I just retired my Sunbeamtech NUUO 550w power supply in favor of a Corsair HX520. I had recently re-installed a Biostar TForce 6100-939 motherboard and rather than take a moment to manually overclock my X2 4800+, I tried out the built in overclock settings. I was surprised that the top setting...

    boycott Multiplay.co.uk servers

    I posted in the Complaints section of the Multiplay.co.uk server forum regarding being kicked from a UT3 game after exchanging words with two players that were using aimbots. I thought it was odd that the admin (Blizzard_Wolf) would ban me as opposed to these blatant cheaters. The admin proceeds...

    2.5 laptop drive array

    I recently got a cheap 160GB 2.5" laptop drive, does anyone use these for storage arrays ? I searched and saw no related topics. I was able to find a 5.25" bay device which stored 4x 2.5" HDs, but it was sata and the drive I have is IDE. What I am looking for is a bracket to mount 2 or more of...

    feeler: any interest in an [H] UT3 clan ?

    Out of all the demos released recently, I find UT3 to be the most fun I have had in a long time... particularly vehicle capture the flag. Other than "artificial aiming", my biggest gripe against the game has been being forced to team up with players who refuse to repair vehicles, those who jack...

    AOpen G326

    The AOpen G325 was hard to find and far from sought after. The G326 appears to be a face lifted version of the same design with an anime / mecha twist to it. While the styling will divide opinions, the interior does seem promising: It looks like you can fit a large HSF with no problems...

    Anyone have any experiences to share with Zalman customer service ? I had a bolt break inside a socket 939 mounting post for a CNPS7000B-Cu and I wrote to them to ask for a replacement post (part #13 according to the manual).

    Sunbeam NUUO owners thread

    About a year and a half ago, I was putting together a parts list for a midrange build (mATX, SLi). I was considering a Hiper PSU because of their modular design, attractive finish, and decent price point (oh, and the cool parts bin, can t forget that...). When reading a popular PSU guide, I...
