    A Look at 3dfx's Cancelled Rampage GPU

    Yep! Most of them are sealed in the original shrinkwrap. I've been collecting this stuff since 2010 and have always preferred items in their original box, sealed if possible. It just adds to the nostalgia seeing the boxes/boxart.

    Happy 24th Birthday Doom!

    Was 14 back then - oh to be young again! I remember I was so pissed because my parents' Packard Bell 316SX only had 2MB of RAM and this required 4. It would have been a chop-fest anyway but once I bought my own (first) computer, a Gateway 2000 P5-75, this was just butter-smooth... and the...

    Any 27"+ 16:10 displays?

    Good info. Thanks! I'll hold onto this one as long as I can then most likely move to a 27" 1440P GSync 16:9 panel down the road.

    Question about AsusWRT

    I use the AsusWRT firmware and haven't had any issues. It does expose some additional functionality through the GUI and moves some stuff around so that its more intuitive. But yeah, they did update it recently.

    MOCA adapters > Wi-Fi Extenders

    I recently moved into a new home that is much larger than my previous. As such, I had a difficult time getting my wireless signal from my router downstairs on one side of our home, to the upstairs office on the opposite side. I tried several well-known range extenders and didn't find a single...

    Best VPN Service?

    I've been using Private Internet Access for a while now through my router's OpenVPN support. However, recently it seems like it's gotten slower and slower no matter what server I connect to. I like it because of it's price and easy of use, but is there anything better/faster out there? Sucks...

    Best streaming device?

    I have a Firestick (gen2) hard-wired with an adapter for better performance. This works well, but I also use a Minix Neo2 U1 which is fantastic little device and is powerful enough for 4K.

    Corsair H100 - Push Pull or Stock Config

    Hey All, Back in the days of the H50 and other closed loop coolers, a push/pull config with high static pressure fans was the way to go. Is this still recommended or is the default config with stock Corsair fans a viable solution for optimal performance?

    Just purchased a new Logitech G605 and tried flashing to the latest firmware. The flashing process started and after leaving it sit there for over an hour, now the light is just flashing red/green. I pulled the batteries, etc - same thing - and the mouse is no longer recognized. Bricked/RMA?

    A New DAW Laptop For ~1000$ or more. Recommendations?A New Music Producing DAW Laptop For ~1000$ or

    Depends on how portable you want it to be as well. Bigger the screen + higher the resolution, the easier it is to see all tracks in the app without too much scrolling around. A single large (and fast) SSD is my preference - no spinners whatsoever. I would also choose a hyperthreaded CPU as I...

    Any 27"+ 16:10 displays?

    Hey all, I have a 25.5" Asus LCD that is getting little long in the tooth. What I like about this display is the extra height provided by the 16:10 aspect ratio. Looking around though, most new panels are all 16:9. I'm looking for something that would be 16:10 in the 27+ " size at 1080p or...
