    Sennheiser HD 598 $150 - Fry's in-store I picked these up a few days ago. I like them... a lot. Not bass heavy, but you can hear the bass clearly, and well, everything else pretty clearly as well. Anyways, these retailed for $300 about 2 years ago, I think they are...

    Efficiency and "More than Necessary" Supply

    I'm sure this has been discussed before... but I went back a few pages and didn't see anything recent. I have a Corsair TX750M that had it's 8-pin CPU connector melt... not sure if it was the fault of the PSU or Motherboard, or the combination... but anyways, they're both going in for RMA. I...

    Sabertooth 990FX seems to have melted CPU connection

    So over this weekend I smelled a foul burning plastic smell. It was almost like tar, and I couldn't pinpoint it, so I thought it might be coming from outside. I sniffed around my PC but couldn't really identify it. Today I was doing some overclocking and stress testing, and I noticed that if...

    Jumping on the bookshelf speaker bandwagon

    There are some sales on right now that might end up being better I thought for under $200. It would use a T-amp, but maybe that'll be fine. Planning on using the 3.5mm out of my LCD TV so that it'll play audio from the laptop, Wii, Raspberry Pi, and whatever else I might hook up. Pioneer...

    HTPC + Web Server for SOHO?

    Hey everyone. So I'm interested in setting up some type of home server in the near future. I'd like to host the standard HTPC stuff: music, TV shows and movies, etc. I also would like to be able to host work files from the server. As a web designer/developer, that would mean larger Photoshop...

    Cheap update with leftover parts

    Hey guys, I don't hang out much around these parts anymore, I haven't used a desktop in years now. Been using this Gateway P-6831FX for close to 3 years now as my main computer. Here's the thing, I have some hard drives, and a half-working old Gateway desktop which contains in it a Q6600. If I...

    Wireless router capable of getting through 2 or 3 cement walls and 50-75 feet?

    Any chance of a router available right now being able to get a decent signal through 3 cement walls and 75 feet away? Seems tough, but I haven't kept up with these new Wireless-N routers at all. My laptop has wireless-n, but my modem/router doesn't. Probably not a decent connection?

    Oblivion TC: Mesogea

    Hey guys, I recently started help working on a big project for Oblivion. It's a Total Conversion that has already created a whole new world space. The world space is about 4 times the size of Oblivion's Cyrodiil. Right now there are only 3 cities built, and still need interiors and NPC's, but...

    Oblivion guru's: Quick Q about lot'sa mods and bugs that happen

    I've got my Oblivion fully modded with FCOM and quite a few other mods. I started playing, and for probably the first time since I've tried so many mods at once, it actually worked! You definitely have to read thoroughly. So I started the game, did a bit in the...

    Free Realms...

    So I've always liked MMORPG's, started with Lineage 1, did Lineage 2 for a bit, then Asheron's Call, tried out free ones over the years, and did a lot of Guild Wars... I never had enough time though to do the whole grinding thing, plus I usually have friends or family around, things to do, etc...

    3 friends, guild wars... which to get?

    First of all, none of us want to pay $50 for the trilogy, I'm sure $20 is max for my other two friends, if anything at all... so which should we get? I'm assuming the original Prophecies gives the most game... and it's the original, so it's probably a good starting point. What do you experts...

    Benq G2412HD... anyone ever heard of it? Same as the G2410HD, but with HDMI and headphone jack... apparently the same panel as Samsung 2494HS according to some Australians..... I'm looking for a cheaper monitor for home. I was thinking about the Dell 2209WA, I do have first-hand...

    Freedom Force available for cheap on Steam... That's an Irrational Game! Steam got an Irrational Game in their catalogue... may I say that it's stupid cheap and I think I might buy it.

    Power of Valve/Steam: Your thoughts

    There was a discussion going at the forums of about how someone bought CoD5 off of Ebay for $35, the Steam version. The guy gifted it to him, and a little while later Steam disabled his account, his whole account with all his games he purchased previous. Not fair or just...

    Quick Question: Friend doesn't have a ton of money for gaming rig

    Quick question, mostly about CPU bottlenecking. My friend has ~$500 for a computer, more or less, but he wants to game on it. Basically my only question, since I've been a little out of the loop for a bit. I know for a while the AMD cpu's have bottlenecked the higher-end cards like the...

    Linux Mint 6 today....

    After a month or two of playing with a few different distro's, I've been enjoying Linux Mint. It's similar to Ubuntu, but IMO, looks better, loads faster, and has some fat cut away while also being more complete. Mint 5 was based on Hardy, or Ubuntu 8.04, and while Ubuntu 8.10 has been out...

    Problem with Toshiba Satellite A105

    Edit: Okay, I've found that the RAM isn't necessarily bad, both work, but only in one spot. The left slot doesn't seem to want to accept any RAM. This is a little strange, isn't it? I've heard of RAM going bad, but the slot, I'm not so sure.... anyone had a problem similar to this?

    I don't understand reviews sometimes: Razer Piranha

Now this headset from Razer is $80, the reviewer says they are uncomfortable for extended periods of time, are crap for...
