    Trying to use laptop as HTPC - Assistance needed :)

    Howdy all, I have recently decided that I want to try to save some money by, instead of buying a new computer as a HTPC, simply use my laptop, a Lenovo T400. The T400 has a VGA out, and of course a headphone jack. The TV I am trying to use is a standard definition TV with an input that...

    Laptop for college

    Anything more than a 14" laptop for college life is gonna be annoying. Trust me, don't go above 14". 15" can be tolerable, but ANYTHING more than 15 is plain and simply dumb.

    (sigh) No reason to go Nvidia...

    This. I honestly wonder how many of these people have ACTUALLY had problems, or if its just one person who has an issue, then someone posts about how someone had an issue, and then someone posts about those two people...And so on. Perhaps people just mess stuff up through idiocy?

    Hey, all. My girlfriend's computer is running the specified hardware, and it is starting to lag behind. I am wondering what exactly I should be going for here. I am guessing I will need to buy a new CPU cooler, but not sure what is the best bang for buck. I am looking to increase speed...

    Need new monitor that supports disabled scaling @ 1280x1024

    Hey, all. As of right now, I am using a Dell 2407WFP AO3. In Windows 7 and Windows Vista, I am unable to play Warcraft 3 @ 1280x1024 with scaling disabled. Whenever I click "apply" for disabling scaling, it will simply default back to allowing my monitor to handle that. However, when I go...

    ATI RV870 Expected to Arrive in Late July

    I think its funny that so many people are going to argue which is going to be better, despite the fact that we have ZERO reason to think either way or the other. No matter what any of us say, it is pure speculation. Yet many of you will get your e-peens bent out of shape when someone says...

    Why the Japanese Hate the iPhone

    Help overclocking a X3 720 please? :)

    Interesting. When I looked at their website here: It says "Voltages 0.850-1.425V ". Does that mean that 1.425V is the max? I was confused when I first saw this, because I see most sites saying that go well into 1.5V with overclocks.

    Which quad core CPU seems to get to 4GHz consistently on air?

    My understanding was that the i7 gets a bit too hot and really doesn't OC that high. Maybe 3.8, but not 4.0, right? Also, the 9550 doesn't get 4.0 consistently. There have been quite a few who have, but also quite a few who haven't. A 100% reliable 9550 OC is more like 3.7. For 4.0, I'd...
