    X-Fi Titanium PCI-E Sound Card $39.99 Shipped

    As a heads up, I had the xtremegamer and Titanium HD. Every time I booted with one of them, I had to mess with the Creative Control Panel. (switch between entertainment and gaming modes). Otherwise I wouldn't have any sound. This was on windows 8.

    esxi 5.1 troubles & thoughts

    I recently upgraded my server to ESXi 5.1, in part because I wanted to try Windows 8/Server2012. The update went smooth, and Chilly's drivers still work fine after the update. Having tried it out, I want to passthrough the USB 3.0 controller to a Windows VM. However when I try adding it on...

    OpenSolaris derived ZFS NAS/ SAN (OmniOS, OpenIndiana, Solaris and napp-it)

    Hi everyone, I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this, but I'm hoping someone else here has experienced this. I'm running a M1015 in IT mode in passthrough. I just upgraded from ESXi 5.0 to 5.1 7xxxxx, then updated to 914609. I have reinstalled the vmware-tools on my OI vm. After...

    HDMI, miniDP Adapters not working for notebook

    I'm trying to connect a Thinkpad X1 to a Sceptre x20wc monitor. This model of thinkpad has both Mini Displayport and HDMI. I have tried buying both a monoprice "5106" mini-dp to dvi adapter, and a simple male hdmi to female dvi adapter. Neither have worked. For HDMI, some research revealed that...

    ESXi 5 Home Lab Build Questions

    Sorry for the mess, I hope it's readable. What I have here is a bunch of notes/plans about what I want to do. I currently have: Q6600 P35-DS3L 6GB RAM While the CPU performance is fine, I feel like I need more RAM, and I don't want to spend money on "old" DDR2. Power consumption is also an...

    OpenSolaris derived ZFS NAS/ SAN (OmniOS, OpenIndiana, Solaris and napp-it)

    I've tried searching but couldn't find anything that specifically addresses my problem. I'm having my folder shared with samba. How do I enable read-only guest, and read/write user? (I have done both, but not together.) Can I block read/write for certain subdirectories to guests? Thanks!

    ASUS P8P67 DELUXE refurbished 87.99 shipped

    Got mine today as well, nothing but the motherboard (disappointed). I'll have to send Geeks an email. My motherboard box was previously opened, was this the case for anyone else? Haven't turned it on yet, but it looks great.

    Poll: Who do you trust with your DNS on your home connection?

    DNSMasq on dd-wrt, supplied by ISP. I would use something else but I'm concerned that caching (Akamai, Youtube, Steam) would point somewhere far away. Am I accurate on this?

    Best use for my 3 new drives

    Over black friday, I picked up 3 3TB external hard drives from best buy. I have a Optiplex 745 (q6600, 6GB ram with 2 nics) as an ESXi 5.0 server. Since I'm on break for the holidays, I was wondering what would be the best way to use these drives. I plan on taking them out of their...

    I just got mine, but hot air is building up inside. I'm thinking of turning around the front fan so that both are blowing in. Anything else I can do?

    Accidental upgrade - need PSU/RAM suggestions

    I would get this. I had a SP-500 fail on me a few years ago, taking out an entire system. I'm not suggesting that all of them are prone to failure, but it's nice to have peace of mind.

    Razer Deathadder Black Edition

    It's great they finally fixed this, I'll probably pick one up. However, I think this was planned to some degree. They had to have picked up this issue while testing the design and shape of the DA.

    what gaming mouse do you use/love?

    Deathadder 3g. I've had the mx518, G5, and G500, but the deathadder blows them all out of the water. For me, it's much more comfortable and controllable. I would like it to have adjustable dpi like the logitech mice, but I can easily give that up for the ergonomics of this mouse.

    I'm having a problem. Really, I guess I know more about what I want. I got an ABS M1 when they were on sale. However I don't like how they bottom out so quickly, it's hurting my fingers. Not sure about the weight of these switches either, I think they're too heavy. Would brown or blue be a...

    EA Wants $10 to Unlock Online Multiplayer For Used Games

    Actually, this might be a good thing. Instead of paying full price, you only have to pay $10 for full multiplayer access. Now I can give EA even less money!
