For those of you who don't know, HEAT.NET was founded by "Gary" who I remember being the CEO of Segasoft during the late 90's. I remember he used to send me boxes of heat.net CD's to distribute, he's been successful, unfortunately heat.net was not.
It was similar to mplayer.com, essentially the...
My home file server is running off a Asus IP35-Pro, currently housing some random PCIe video and the perc 6/i card.Since the perc only holds 8 drives, I am thinking of implementing another because it's so cheap.

I am using WMPHC and the PC can play 1080p just fine if the file is local or on an external drive. However, when playing 1080p, sometime during the movie, the audio will lose sync with the video. I am using wireless N, and it has a strong signal, but I think the minor drops in signal strength...

I am running 4 x 2TB drives in Raid 5 on a 790i Ultra. The 2 main drives are in Raid 0 (150gb Velociraptors). The Raid 5 drive speed is random, sometimes its great, and other times i can't even stream a video off it. I am assuming it is because it's using a parity drive, and software parity is...
PC is using an 8800GS Video card with dual DVI. I have tried multiple DVI/HDMI cables, and I think it's just the overall cable length that's killing it. I was hoping to get some suggestions here.

CAT5 supports up to 150ft, and CAT6 up to 200ft.
This sounds like a cost effective solution to wiring in my projector for the home theater.
Has anyone used this? I think it requires a conversion patch box but I have yet to find a...
I am trying to boot directly off and ISO from a hard drive. This is the situation:
I have serveral iso's on a hard drive for our office. We have an MSDN license so we generally download most of our iso's and have them sitting on the file server for use when we need them. We'll burn a cd or...

For me.. I think my #1 would have to go to Quake 2
I hopped on lithium and LMCTF and used to play on a server called VK LMCTF - Played it so much I joined the 'clan' - had tons of fun. I don't think I've found a game since then where I had as much fun as I did playing Quake 2. I would...

Ditching my ultras... for GT's
I know the Ultras are faster... but I have my reasons.
I want to make sure these Ultra's can handle games at 1920x1200. I mainly play TF2 at 1920x1200 4/4 everything on high. I never see a drop below 60fps.... I keep vsync on to reduce the tearing...
My Ultras did 18342 with rig in sig...
Wondering how the GT SLI setup fairs...
Also FPS at high res... or any other benchmarks if someone can provide. I think real FPS stuff would be great since 3dm06 deals a lot with processor.... but I can get an idea if you have HR/SM scores and not CPU...
Title says it....
I am wondering how the GT series compares to the Ultra series in terms of SLI....
Ultra's are still the fastest... however I am very interested in seeing the comparison. Especially at 1920x1200 or higher resolutions since that is when it will get the most use.
I am currently using CoreTemp...
Sitting at 44/44/37/37 right now.
Speedfan reads 30/30/23/23 - which I believe its inaccurate.
The system is watercooled and it's around 78-80 in the room.
I am curious if anyone uses a program that has better accuracy or any recommendations on what...
I rebooted PC, and DVI just stopped working. Was able to remote into PC just fine.
So I used the analog port on my LCD monitor and hooked it up using a DVI/VGA adapter and it works fine on both ports.
If I plug a VGA monitor in at the same time with my DVI lcd - both screens go black. As soon...

Curious if anyone has used this just to power a single 8800GTX or 8800 ULTRA
If my 700w is giving me problems I may go this route until I throw in a different supply and sell both of them.
Swapping out my A-Bit IP35PRO for an eVGA 680i A1 so I can run my 8800GTX's in SLI.
I run RAID0 on my two 74GB Raptors and I've ghosted my system. Problem is, I can't just re-apply the image to the drives since the raid drivers do not exist in windows by default. I was curious if this could...
Ever since I watched my first wide screen movie I was a fan....
The black bars that appear never seemed to bother me. In fact, I prefer them over the normal pan and scan setup. However, a friend of mine brought up a question which I never really thought too much about.
I have a Dell 2407WFP-HC...
So a friend of mine wanted to swap out his 320gb drive for a larger 500gb drive.
I figure.. simple... pop open acronis or ghost - clone the drive, yada yada yada easy as pie.
Ok here is the dilemma - when I pop open acronis I see this.
Ext3: 167.xx GB
Swap File: 20mb...
700W Power Supply - forgot the brand but it's name brand, I paid $130 for it awhile ago.

2xDVDRW (can pull one out, no biggie)
Thinking of snagging a 8800GTX to add to my 8800GTX OC. Both would be BFG of course, and I figure I can up the clock on the NON-OC to the OC speed anyway.
Just curious if this is possible.... and has anyone here done it?
I receive that problem when returning from power-save mode. If i power the monitor off and on again it goes away.
I am not sure what is causing this but any input would be appreciated.
Has anyone dealt with dell's RMA policy without an original...
