    Looking for suggestions on my HTPC build

    I built a new HTPC to replace my old 775 system that I did have. I am looking to do more than just stream movies from my main box and replace the PS3. I still use it for Netflix, Hulu, and also stream movies from my media server. I have a nice HT setup with an Onkyo receiver, 5.1 surround...

    Just saw this at the egg. Good deal so I jumped on it. Saves $40 and gives you a 3-user copy for less then what it is for a single user copy.

    Mobile C2Q9000 or C2D P8600??

    I recently acquired a mobile Core2Quad Q9000 for basically free. Just wondering what you would do with it... Thinking about putting it in my laptop for the hell of it though. I work a lot with virtual machines and CS5 on my laptop and it works pretty good right now.

    Xigmatek s1283v DK or CM 212+??

    Well, I finally found some of those 1156 brackets for my dark knight cooler. Just wanted some opinions on whether it was worth swapping out the CM 212+ for the Xigmatek or leaving the CM in there. The s1283 cooled my Q9550 really good and I have been fairly impressed with the Cooler Master...

    Intel DP35DP RAID, no floppy = no RAID drivers

    Hi, I have been trying to install Windows XP on this PC for a while now (about 2 hours now) and it will not read the USB drive at all. I have it set up to emulate a floppy in the BIOS. It keeps giving me an unexpected error. I have my drives setup in RAID 0 and that is all good. I cannot...

    System powers and shuts off almost immediately...

    Hi, I recently acquired an Asus A7N8X (reg board rev 2) motherboard, AMD Athlon XP 3000 barton, 1GB crucial DDR400, and an ATI X800AGP graphics card from a friend. The thing about it is that it powered and booted up great for a week and now it will only power up and then power down about 10...

    Well, I have a few problems with this computer. It reboots itself randomly sometimes, like 3 times a week now. It gets into windows and tells me it recovered from a serious system error or some crap like that. It'll also tell me that a program has ran into a serious error and has to shut...

    Anyone have a DigiDoc or something close?

    There anything out there like the DigiDoc 5 like I had in my old PC? I have everest running but would rather have something that is more accurate. The CPU runs at around 45~52c which I guess is normal. My P4 runs at ~40C so not that much of a change between CPUs. I found a few things on eBay...
