    Worth changing/upgrading the OS SSD?

    Hi, I have a Crucial m4 128GB for Windows and a Crucial MX100 512GB for games. I know that the MX100 is faster, but my question is: would I notice any noticeable difference if I installed Windows on the MX100 instead? For reference here are their benchmarks: m4...

    Exlude For Sale / Trade posts from "Today's Posts"

    Is there a way to filter out FS / FT posts from the "Today's Posts" results or any chance of adding a second option to search for "Today's Posts" but without FS / FT? (<-- I've seen it somewhere, one button for New Posts, and another button for New Posts (excluding For Sale section)) Thanks.

    Question about Sandy Bridge vcore

    I set my i5 2400's turbo multiplier at x36 for a 3.6GHz overclock (meh, more than enough for games) and I left the vcore on Auto, which turns out is 1.32V according to Core Temp. That's pretty high, considering the speed and all, no? The motherboard is an Asus P8P67.

    [RANT] Benq customer support/warranty sucks

    <RANT> So a couple of days ago I went to turn on my Benq G2400WD monitor and guess what happens? The power button breaks, it gets pushed in. (Like this.) So, as it was still in warranty, I contacted Benq. After an exchange of e-mails they proceeded to tell me that that wasn't covered by the...

    Upgrade worth it?

    Hi, I currently have a 3.4GHz Q9550 on an old P965 (P5B Deluxe) motherboard along with 8GB DDR2. I have an opportunity to sell it for a decent price and buy a used Core i5 750 / P55-UD4 / 8GB DDR3 bundle for 60 &#8364; more. I know SB is all the rave right now but I just can't afford...

    Worth upgrading MX510 to MX518?

    Well, I've had this Logitech MX510 for around 5 1/2 years. It's still working perfectly but it feels... somewhat lacking. Increasing the USB poll rate to 500Hz improved things a bit, installing SetPoint did too (pointer/movement speed wise) but still... maybe it's time to move on? So, is it...

    Sidewinder X6 + Sidewinder X5/X8 combo any good?

    I'll have a bit of disposable income soon and I thought maybe it was time to put my trusty 5 year old MX510 to rest and buy a new one. Never had a high-end keyboard too so might as well buy one now! (And the Sidewinders match :D) Current setup: Logitech MX510 Logitech Access Keyboard 600...

    Help me choose between Battlefield games

    Hello, I've just received an e-mail from EA with a 15 &#8364; voucher code for use on the EA Store. Considering I already have most of the games that I'd be interested in, that the rest are really expensive (50 &#8364;) and that I don't want to spend much money I narrowed it down to the...

    Antec Solo airflow question

    I have an Antec Solo with a 120mm exhaust fan and 2x92mm intake fans all @ 5V (I'm trying to keep it quiet). I wanted to know if adding a Scythe Kama Bay (without the fan) would make that much of a difference in cooling to warrant a purchase or it would help but in the process mess with the...

    Advice on first (cheap) joystick

    Hi, I'm thinking of buying a joystick. This will be my first joystick so no, I've never played a flight sim before. I don't want to spend a lot of money because I'm not planning to spend a lot of time playing around with sims, just the occasional play and whatnot. The problem is that there...

    Quad-core upgrade, buy new MB or keep current one?

    Hello, I'm about to buy a Q9550, the question is: should I buy a new P45 motherboard or keep my current P5B Deluxe? With the latest BIOS it supports 45nm quads (I'm using a 45nm dual right now) but I don't know how well a P965 will handle an overclocked 45nm quad-core. I see a lot of...

    (Relatively) Good, cheap computer speakers for music?

    Hello, I'm selling my Logitech X-530 speakers because frankly I don't need 5.1 and now I simply don't use them anymore thanks to my HA-RX900. So I'm looking for a relatively good (and cheap) set of computer speakers, 2.0 or 2.1, nothing too fancy. So far I've looked at Altec Lansing...

    HD3870 --> HD4850?

    Greetings, I was wondering, is it worth upgrading from my HD3870 to a overclocked HD4850 or is it just a waste of money? P965 MB E8400 @ 3,6GHz 4GB DDR2-800 Currently playing at 1440x900 (19") but I'm planning to upgrade to a 24" monitor (I can always lower the resolution, good...

    New headphones (gaming mostly)

    Hello, Right now I have a crappy set of headphones (you can't argue with free) but I think the time has come to buy some nice new headphones. I'm no audiophile, I'll tell you that. So I'll settle for less, as long as it sounds better than those :p The budget isn't great either (~ 70...

    About to buy a new "keyboard" gamepad, need help choosing one

    Hello, I'm about to buy a new gamepad (to play FPS of course) but I don't know which to buy, the Ideazon Fang or the Wolfking Warrior! I'm afraid that the Fang might be uncomfortable and that the location of its the space button might not be the best. About the Warrior, I see people praising...
