    Viewsonic VX2233wm

    I bought this monitor at Fry's last month and after using it I have mixed feelings. The resolution (1920x1080) is nice given my mid-range video card. Unfortunately, the picture quality kind of sucks. Compared to my last monitor (Samsung Syncmaster 930) the colors are washed out and the blacks...

    8800GT fan died, need some advice

    The fan on my BFG 8800GT died yesterday while I was playing CoD4. I heard a pop and noticed a few minutes later that I couldn't hear the fan. The power of this card is impressive, I hardly noticed the game slowdown as it throttled. When I quit the game the Nvidia thermal monitor was steady at...

    Better overclocker, E2200 or E4500?

    So the E2200 just came out. I was previously just going to go with the E4500 but this cpu plus a nice cooler might be a better buy. How well have the 2XXX series cpus been overlocking compared to the 4XXX?

    Antec TrueBlue 480

    My current system uses a 2004 Antec TrueBlue 480 psu. It's currently powering a Pentium 4 system with a 6600GT and a healthy assortment of accessories with no problems. I want to build a new system and I am hoping to salvage as much as I can from the old (case, drives, soundcard, etc.). I...

    Powered Subwofer Recommendations?

    I've had my Swans M200s for about six months now. I absolutely love them but I kind of miss the bass in my music. I got a new job recently (hooray for disposable income) and I've been thinking about putting $150-200 toward a subwoofer. I understand that it will be easiest to get a powered...

    New soundcard for Vista

    Hey guys, I've been having problems with my Creative Audigy with Vista. Sound is stuttering during any kind of cpu load and something about the card or driver is causing the system to hang every 30 seconds. I really don't feel like waiting around for Creative to fix the problem (if they...

    Microphone, Teamspeak, Windows Vista: The Perfect Storm

    So I installed Vista (Business ed.) the other day. Originally my Audigy worked ok with the latest XP drivers. Today it started to sound like crap (lots of low end distortion/crackling). Not a big deal, I was surprised when it worked at all. So I switch over to onboard (Realtek) and...

    Room problems: sound absorbing panels?

    I got a pair of Swans M200s for Christmas. They sounded great at home, but now that I have them in my apartment I'm having problems. I have a built in desk shaped like so: _____| | x |x |_____ x | Xs are walls. It's basically an indentation with a sliding desk. It doesn't really...

    Wireless Problems: I need more POWAH!

    I live in an apartment (I just moved in actually) that has wireless internet. My room seems to be either too far from a base station or in the shadow of some object. I started out with a USB wireless adapter, which didn't work well. Now I have a Linksys pci adapter which is a bit better, but...
