    Lenovo IdeaPad G780 Notebook Intel Core i5 3210M(2.50GHz) 17.3" 4GB - $549 AC

    Thought this was sort of warm for someone looking for a budget gaming laptop like I was today for my wife, this seems to be a pretty good deal for $549. She primarily plays WOW and Diablo 3, and when reading the performance seems to be acceptable for something cheap. Also read that it has an...

    Velocity Micro Cruz Reader R102 7” Tablet w/ Android OS - $69.99

    Newegg has this on sale today. Might make for affordable Christmas presents if you have children you wouldn't spend $400 for a real tablet for (because they'll likely break it anyways). Most of the functionality is there.

    Xigmatek Loki SD963 92mm, $24.99 well spent

    So the Hyper212 wasn't on sale.. so I sprung for the cheaper cooler because I didn't want to spend $40 on a cooler. So I gambled, and basically... I am really impressed with this $24.99 cooler. It mounts very well and feels very sturdy, the fan mounting rubbers are extremely stretchy so the fan...

    ASRock P67 Extreme4, C.C.O. Crooked?

    Got my new PC setup about a week ago, and let me first start by saying, I turned the pc on.. selected 4.4ghz before it even booted.. and voila.. ran beautifully... So I rebooted, crunk it up, got it to post, and boot into windows @ 5.1ghz w/ 1.45 volts (I believe it was), but it was running at...

    Q6600 w/ a 6850 CF bottlenecks?

    How much performance am I giving up by using 6850 CF on a q6600 @ 3.0ghz on a p5e x38 board w/ 4gb of ram? This is at 1920x1080. Primary usage will be BC2 and BF3. I do intend on playing Metro 2033, and a few others. Keep in mind this is a budget minded setup. I am not looking for absolute 100%...

    Asus P5B Deluxe Socket Damage

    The pins on the socket on the motherboard are bent and one is missing. This is a plastic piece and it looks detachable? Is it possible to repair this motherboard? I really liked it, and would love to fix it and use it in another machine.. Beats auctioning it for next to nothing for parts. Any...
