    Replacement motherboard

    Ok so about a year ago, some orange soda got spilled on my computer on the back of it while it was running, so it only got on the motherboard (i think and hope). I turned it off right away and tried to clean it up the best I could. The system wouldn't boot. Just shows the windows screen...

    Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ28 s $298.00

    The price of this camera dropped about 40 bux on newegg's site since earlier today, for anyone who is keeping an eye out. And if you bought it earlier today....that sucks, dude. You can find this camera a bit cheaper on some sites I've never heard of. We're talking like 10 or 15 bux...

    Anyone ever lose interest in a game before it's released?

    This has happened to me a couple times recently. First it was with Burnout: Paradise. When I first saw it was coming out, I could hardly wait. Then it came out. I still haven't bought it yet. Then was Rainbow 6 Vegas 2. Same thing. Still haven't bought it. I think I might wait for PC...

    First Intel build. Asus P5N-D Sli & e3110

    System is running great. Tons faster than my old x2 4400 on my asus a8n sli premium. However, I cannot seem to overclock this thing for nothing. The bios options are a bit unfamilar to me. The only "fsb" anything I can change is the thing that's set at 1333 and then I can change the memory...

    Plantronics DSP 500 went replacement?

    I can find a set of DSP 500 headphones but they are more expensive than they should be, IMO. Can anyone recommend a newer model headphones (doesn't have to be plantronics) that are comparable?

    Split into PS/XBOX forums?

    I suggest splitting the console forum into a "Playstion", "XBOX" and "Wii" threads. So much to weed through to get to what people are looking for. If I only want to read about 360 stuff, for example. In other news. Is there going to be a RB6 Vegas 2 demo? The game comes out next month...

    How about Painkiller already? For 360?!

    Many of you are Painkiller fans. Many of you have perhaps never heard of the game. Well after many many delays for the XBOX version, it finally came out either just before or just after (I can't remember which) the release of the XBOX 360. I heard that there would be backward compatibility...

    Vsync On = Mouse Lag

    I've seen a couple threads that attempted to address this issue, but those were all threads started on a different topic and the mouse lag issue was talked about but never resolved. So, anyone have a resolution for this? If I get 125fps + in a game, I'll run with vsync off and have no...

    Logitech G5 Problems?

    USB Headphones and Conflicts

    Full Extended review of Sega Rally and Juiced 2 demos!!

    Sega Rally is ok. Sort of makes me think of Ridge Racer but on dirt and with better driving physics. Very arcade feel to it. Seems like it could be fun multiplayer. I might pick this game up. Juiced 2. Junk...just liked Juiced 1 was junk.

    Which Wheel for 360?

    I'm currently using a Microsoft Sidewinder wheel for my PC. I've been using it for a number of years and I've tried using other wheels but I always go back to the Sidewinder wheel. I still think it's one of the best wheels ever made. I like how it goes back to center when you let go of it. I...

    Antec 900 + Zalman 9700

    Just got my Antec 900 case. I was using an X-Blade case before. The Antec provides ALOT better air flow. I don't have a comparison shot of the system in the X-Blade...but it was idle at about 41-43 most of the time and loading around 56. Here's idle in the Antec 900. All air cooling.

    LG Flatron 19" Vsync Problem.

    Video Card or CPU?

    I have 250 bux. I currently have a single 7900 GTO and a 3500+ AMD newcastle. Should I spend the 250 bux on another 7900 GTO or should I use the money on a new CPU? I'm running Socket 939. If you think I should get a new CPU, what CPU would you recommend?

    x2 4200+ = 183 x2 3800 = 185??

    Can anyone please explain to me why the 3800+ would be going for less than the 4200+? I mean I don't know that much about AMD processors, but if i'ts the same type of processor, like an X2, the higher the number the better right? So what's going on here?
