    One day with 6970

    Interesting one day notes: I installed a Diamond 6970 from Newegg yesterday, after having to upgrade my PSU to a noname 1100w from pcdirect.com (local retail shop for 3btech.net) since the TT psu only had 6 pins and a 6pin to 8pin adapter wouldn't let my GAEX58UD3R startup....really wants...

    Any new GTX 460 owners want to share their experiences and impressions?

    Just got two ENGTX460 DirectCU non-top versions. They are so wide they will not fit in my EX58-UD3R -the slots are jammed together or these cards are fatties! I can kind force them in if I put them in the right order, but when I ordered them, I forgot my board was pre-sli boxed. It is...

    .NET developer starting pay?

    I skipped some fluff in the middle, but in South Bend, IN - internships pay about $12 an hour for full time for starting ASP.NET, SQL Server, C# developers. A Entry level position nets you around $40K per year with those skills, or any other development (C, MySQL, ASP/Ruby/Http ... ) for that...

    He wasn't around then, but he was my first suspect till I saw the date. Still suspecting Bush or his administration since they knew they were going to be out of work for a little while.

    Apple Releases Four New Commercials

    Found the legaleeze! HD ftw... I think all computers suffer from needing a cleanup once in a while...ie Quicktime is still running though I removed it and rebooted(That should be illegal), hard drives need defragging and some cleanup even on Mac and Linux.

    Looks like a poor attempt...It is not recognizing the CPU properly, which means it is probably using 1 or 2 cores instead of all four, would have to see the resource chart. Needs more polish, but it's nice that it's cheap and boots right up...btw, typing on this real Mac keyboard in this...

    What To Do With 24 256GB Samsung SSDs?

    Fishy video all around. 1) With 2kW in PSU, they still couldn't use both 4870X2's. Something about their raid card wanting more juice from the PCI-E bus. 2) Then I was a loss as to why they had multiple raid cards till I noticed something. They maxed out their speed at 9 drives! That was at...

    TV & Video Games Increase Teen Depression Risk

    My argument the last time we saw this crap. Honestly, our entire world culture is becoming so liberal (not in the literal sense of the word, more like the political sense of it) that we can't let our children develop normally. We can't spank, we can't expose them to "risks", we can't do anything...

    EVGA 9800GT SLI Issues - Games Crashing

    Try taking one card out and OCing the other. See if the stability issues show up in either card. I'm thinking it's one of two things: 1) one of the cards can't handle the heat/speed caused by OC - which you said you ruled out, but testing individual cards might show you a problem, or 2) the...

    The PC of 2010

    Is Intel and Google Preparing “Mass Roll-out” of Netbooks?

    Windows 7 Beta Taking Unusual Development Route

    Didn't Apple just win that patent on Multi-Touch? Seems that this innovation might get squashed imho...unless you buy an Apple product. I could see them requiring retardedly high licensing like Sony and BD. It's a sure way to kill a technology.
