    Anyone else running the Intel DP55KG MoBo?

    I've been running the Intel DP55KG in my main system for about a month now and I have to say I'm impressed with it. Intel motherboard have come a long way from being the bland feature-lacking motherboards they once were. FYI I usually run my CPUs at stock. So I don't know how this board...

    Vista -> Win 7 upgrade install vs new install.

    Usually when a new OS launches, I will do an upgrade install at first to get it up and going and then will usually do a clean OS install a couple/few months later. Every time there are some little annoying problems that crop up because of it being an upgrade install vs a clean fresh install...

    Intel I7 searches

    Is there any way to make an exception for I7 so that it doesn't get blocked in searching for being too short of a word? For example I want to go in the FS/FT subforum and do a search for just I7 so that I can find all of the related motherboards, CPUs, etc for sale.

    Sound card for Swan D1080MkIIs

    A little background. I used to do a lot of gaming on both my PC and consoles, but about a 2 years ago I basically moved completely to my consoles and my PC hasn't seen a game for that long. I have started to "de-game" my PC. The first thing to go were my surround sound speakers. I sold off...

    I have narrowed down my choices for what anti virus I am going to use. But want some input. 1) Symantec Corporate 10.2. I get this through work for free, they have a license for every employee to have it on their home system. I have used Symantec Corp for years and it has treated me well...

    2x2GB How long should I wait?

    First a little history. I want to make the jump to 4GB in my main system. (see sig) I need to put my current ram in another system so just adding 2GB isn't an option. I don't do any overclocking at all so the ram will be running at stock speeds and latencies. I want to go with a 2x2GB kit...

    2 computers, 1 case

    I run 2 servers in my house. I had just been running them in 2 cases. I access them using remote desktop, so they only need to be connected to power and the network. I figured that I could mount both of the computers in one case to save space. The victim: I have 2 sides for this...

    NintendoDS at Target.

    I was at the Target in Apple Valley, MN and to my surprise next to the GBA was a NintendoDS. It had the demo version of Metroid hunters. I was impressed by the ease of the gameplay. Using a stylus instead of a mouse was quite easy. The music didn't sound that good and pictures spanning the...

    Are you going to buy a NintendoDS?

    Just a poll to find out when everyone else is going to buy a DS, if you are going to get one at all. I know that I am going to wait until it comes out and I can test one out before I buy one right away or wait until more games come out for it.
