    8800 GTS Overclock

    Well, with one day left for step-up, I decided to trade in my eVGA 7900 GTO for an 8800 GTS. I'm really impressed so far...this card overclocks like a monster!! I have it at 660/2000 (stock is 500/1600) with no sweat! Along with a very modest overclock on my CPU, this thing is cruisin'!! I'm...

    We are getting an under counter tv for our kitchen. The logistics of running coax to it are pretty much impossible. Anyone know of a (cheap) wireless solution to get a tv signal (coax or RCA) to it? Thanks.

    Newegg is making me nervous...

    I purchase 99% of parts/supplies for my business from Newegg. They kick ass and their service is the best. However, lately the sheer number of mail-in-rebates on their site are beginning to worry me. They are also listing them in the AFTER MIR price. I doubt it will happen (and I hope...

    External HDD

    A few weeks ago I picked up a Western Digital USB2.0 80GB external drive. It has a 2MB cache drive in it. Would switching it out with a special edition WD with 8MB of cache make any difference? Or is it limited by the bus speed?
