    When do you retire a PSU?

    When the PSU fails I generally retire it. Generally I keep my last three computer builds around. When I retire old rigs (generally 6 years old or more) I hack apart the power supply and modify it to provide DC voltage for electronics projects.

    Interesting. Providing a 4.7" or bigger screen option is probably a good idea. That's one of the reasons I went from an iPhone to an S4.

    When is a good time to buy a laptop?

    If you get stuck with Vista you may have to use XP compatability mode in Vista to get some of the tools you need to work. I had a problem running wookie, an assembly compiler, in Vista even with compatability mode on it wouldn't work.

    Gold Farming is Big Business

    It would be hard to compete with developing nations if you were trying to be a gold farmer in the US even with a botting program or something. I'm not sure if Blizzard would go out of their way to prosecute a US gold farmer.

    Nvidia issues

    So what are your opinions on what Nvidia is going to do about all of the best of 8400, 8600, and 8800 chipsets? I read that if they recall them all they will go bankrupt. I predict that they will just replace each one under warranty as it goes bad.
