    Budget ~$400 Gaming Build

    I was looking at newegg, and If I get an antec case+psu combo I can save a bunch of money. However, is 430W enough power for a GTX260, and the rest of the computer. I was also leaning towards getting a phenom II x4 processor, I know it's a little old but at $100 it's hard to beat for the price...

    Is a Ultraportable right for College??

    I really don't think a SSD is worth it. Especially if you are gonna go cheap. I'd reccomend getting a fast 7200rpm drive they're fast enough. My T410 with a 7200rpm is as fast as my desktop with a corsair black.

    Mtro2033 Free at Nvidia Store!

    If I recall correctly, the last time I bought something that used Digital Rivers for digital distribution it took a while to get my key and download link. So don't get discouraged if it takes a couple of hours, this could still work.

    Xbox360 novice , what to get?

    Unless I'm mistaken, the 3 year warranty that you are referring to, is the 3 year warranty given to the original launch 360s and was only for the RROD. All new 360s have a 1 year warranty, I haven't heard of any major problems with newere 360s though. If you want to get into console gaming...

    Netbook advice

    I personally would recommend the Asus EEE pc 1005pe / peb. If all you want to do is listen to music, browse the net and do some word processing you should be good. Take note that while doing all this I was maxing the processor out. In fact having to many tabs open at once in chrome was...

    Hommade selector switch.

    I'm sorry, you're right about the LEDs. I haven't used led rope lights in a while. I forget if they have a acdc rectifier on them for a wall plug, if they do this will be even better.

    Hommade selector switch.

    So what you are saying is I can wire the selector switch shown in the second link inline with a 120VAC electrical line using crimp-on quickconnects. How will I insulate the quickconnects so that I don't electrocute myself? Basically what I want to do is add and inline toggle switch to an LED...

    Hommade selector switch.

    Basically what I want to do is wire a switch so that when I have it in the "ON" position the LED rope light turns on. I have never done this with circuititry that was operating above 5V and a few mA. My question is what do I need to watch for so that I don't build a suicide button. Would I...

    I need a netbook.

    After using the 1005peb for a couple hours, I can't notice any differences besides the matte finish on the outer screen. I personally would recommend the 1005pe / peb over the 1001p because of the keyboard alone. I feel that it is noticeably better than that on the 1001p. The computer is by no...

    I need a netbook.

    I'm not aware of any newer netbooks that come with ssds. From my understanding those netbooks all sucked due to the fact that they were using extremely low quality SSDs. In regards to a 9" Netbook, It would reduce the size of the keyboard would be my main concern. I find a 10" netbook has a...

    Fanless netbook a problem or a positive?

    Actually the n450 is barely faster than the nzxx series the difference comes in the power consumption of the n450 chipset. The netbooks with the n450 chipset have been getting noticeably better battery lives than the previous nzxx series. Really the only thing that makes it better. Performance...

    Any good RPGs lately?

    Any of the new bioware rpgs are great: Dragon Age, Mass effect 1/2, however you seem to be more into JRPGs in all honesty if you aren't worried about graphics buy a ps2 and you'll have RPGs for years. FFX,X-2, Xenogears, Suikoden, Kingdom hearts and many more.

    That's a safety mechanism built into grenade launchers.
