    Think I need to upgrade for Fallout 4?

    I've seen the recommended specs for Fallout 4 but I have a Dell U3011 (2560x1600) so I'm wondering if I need to upgrade my video card. Obviously nobody knows exactly what performance will be like, but based on other "modern" games (I haven't played a new release in over a year) I'd appreciate...

    Borderlands 2 Ultimate Loot Chest Edition

    Who is buying this? I think I might pre-order it since I liked the first game and the extras actually seem cool. It's expensive at $150. There is a Deluxe Vault Hunter edition with less stuff for $100 as well. Amazon link...

    Cooler Master Storm Trigger

    I just received my Cooler Master Storm Trigger with Cherry MX Browns. I'm upgrading from a CM Storm Quickfire Rapid (Cherry MX Blues) because I work in spreadsheets often and need the numpad. I thought I could survive with a separate USB numpad that I use when I need it but that got annoying...

    20-30-20 config questions

    I'm thinking of running a 20 + 30 + 20 config. I currently have SLI GTX460s and would run the 30" off of them. Would this cable work for 2560x1600 on the 30" monitor if the monitor I get from ebay doesn't have one? I was thinking of then getting a GT430 to run the two 20" monitors. One with a...

    Windows on Mac

    I know this will sound stupid and everyone will hate me...but is it possible to just install Windows XP on a Macbook Pro 13" and not have OSX at all? I know that I can get a similarly spec'd laptop for less and that the drivers aren't perfect in windows but I'm just curious.

    Link to program to test new monitor?

    Does anyone have a link to a program that will help me test my new LCD? Basically one of those programs that shows Red, Green, Blue etc to see if there are dead or stuck pixels and then some blacks to see how good the monitor is. I tried searching but probably just didn't choose the right...

    HD Tune benchmark

    What's the "proper" way to run this benchmark? Do y'all change the "block size" and "test speed/accuracy?" Also, what other benchmark utilities can be used with Windows Server 2003? I get some pretty drastic differences by changing the block size with the setup I'm trying to test.

    Quiet SFF

    I'm trying to build a quiet SFF, and because of what I've read I will probably stay away from Shuttles. The Aria is not much bigger than your average Shuttle, and thus I think I'll go with it for expandability plus it's apparent quietness. My main question is if I can fit the following in it...
