    Need a New Power Supply For My Dell E510

    Hey Guys, So my power supply went out in my E510. The E510 requires a BTX PSU. Right now I am looking at a refurbished OCZ Modstream. Is there any reason I shouldn't go with it? Can I trust a refurb PSU? Is there anything that would be better for under $75? Also, I've never swapped out a...

    Notebooks Without Optical Drives...

    I definitely like where you are going with this. However, I am interested in finally making the jump to Bluray and with the high quality displays these days why wouldn't I. What would I do about watching HD quality movies without a bluray drive? If there is an efficient way of doing this I will...

    I'm a netflix fan as well but often I find that older movies aren't available online; only through the mail.

    I haven't looked into putting dvds on my hard drive recently. I did it a couple times a few years ago and it was more trouble and time then it was worth. Is there an effecient way of doing it these days?

    Notebooks Without Optical Drives...

    So I'm diggin the high performance ultraportable notebooks that are out like the u260 and the samsung series 9 but the problem with these for me is the lack of an optical drive. With something so small and portable I would love to pop in a movie on a flight or road trip and an external optical...

    Predictive Texting Turning Kids Into Idiots

    There are many factors that account for the behavior. The guidance of parents is very important but a lot of times it is a lack of communication between child parent and teacher. If the parents could see just how bad things were going then they may be more apt to fix things. I think that it is...

    Predictive Texting Turning Kids Into Idiots

    "at risk youth" has nothing to do with financial status. It is reffering to kids who are wrongly influenced and likely to head down the wrong path. With this usually comes a "don't give a shit" attitude towards acamdemic opportunities. I have also seen plenty of "stupid-ass rich kids" that were...

    Wireless speed dropped rediculously...

    Ok so I've basically narrowed it down to the router being the problem. I tried an old router and it worked fine. I also noticed the slow speeds with the problem router when using it with my iphone as well. What could the problem be with the router? Is there any setting changes I should try?

    Splitting my cable signal...is this gonna kill it?

    I have a powered splitter for my house. Cable going into the house goes to the splitter then out from there. The signal gets amplified allowing it to be split multiple times. It works great for me.

    Network pics thread

    Yeah I've been seeing those for awhile. They use them in basements alot for whole house audio systems. You can use a radio tuner, a cd, or your ipod and play them through the house's in wall/ceiling speakers. Putting them in a rack makes them fit better with the rest of the house's gear. I...

    Wireless speed dropped rediculously...

    Router is practically new..got it in october I believe. Laptop is 3 years old. I haven't updated my drivers recently and I don't think windows has either. I will try with an old router and see if its the same.

    Wireless speed dropped rediculously...

    So Ive noticed that my wifi speed on my notebook has really slowed down recently. Using the internet has become tedious on it and it was fine a few weeks ago.

    Now your getting it! That's just the way it works, when you finally go HD it is a quite expensive voyage..but totally worth it! Yes nintendo has a component cable. The only problem is the wii doesn't really output HD even over component so it still won't look as good as HD. But yes component...

    Any reason to get a 1080p?

    I'm using a 32" Toshiba Regza 32RV530U. It is 1080p and just amazing. I also have a 42" Olevia and the Regza just blows it out of the water. It is just amazing, great blacks, great colors, awesome looking bezel. It is great with games, movies, tv, and pc. Just make sure that you are going to use...

    Any reason to get a 1080p?

    Yes 1080p is what you need for pc use. On a side note, I keep hearing these commercials about a new HDTV service being offered by either Directv or Dish, I can't remember, but it is all in 1080p. I believe it is called turbo HD?

    Macbook vs Macbook Pro?

    Thanks for the info. Yes I think the MBP would be good for portability I am just stuck between going with it or the Dell m1330. The Dell is a 13.3 like the macbook but it has discrete graphics and is actually thinner. I much prefer the look of the MBP and OSX but the Dell is soooo much cheaper...

    Macbook vs Macbook Pro?

    So I'm kinda sorta shopping for a new laptop and I like the macs. I was looking for something portable so I liked the macbook. However, I really dislike the material and colors. It also lacks discrete graphics. Now I love the MBP but it is bigger and heavier plus much more costly. I know there...

    What DVI cables do I need?

    Yes so you just need a single link dvi-d and then your monitor should have a stereo mini jack like the one on your pc. You would just run the stereo mini cable from the monitor to the computer where you plug in speakers. There you have it video and sound!

    It did have some things that the iPhone does not like GPS, though I never got a program to use it. The specs are an Intel XScale PXA270 312 MHz processor, 64MB Ram, quad-band GSM phone, and Bluetooth 1.2. I had it listed on the forums forever until I decided to list it on ebay. I bought it in...

    What DVI cables do I need?

    just pick up a DVI-D cable (male to male) and you will be fine. I know it is confusing but don't worry about all that stuff. The extra pins are for different types of DVI like interlaced and analog etc. Just go with a DVI-D male to male.

    Connecting PS3 to Dell 2707

    I would deffinantly use dvi with audio going to a receiver or similar. As for the pc you'd have to decide if you were happy with vga or find a splitter. Personally I don't like splitters for something like that that you would use a lot...they just break. I connect my laptop to a 2007wfp over vga...
