    Which Xonar version to get?

    I am looking at getting either the D1 or the D2. I have ATH-AD700 headphones and Logitech X-540 5.1 speakers (might upgrade those), and will be using the card for music/games/blu-rays. I know that the D2 has hardware DTS.. will that benefit me?

    Amplifier for AD700 suggestions

    I just got the ATH-AD700 for use with an AV-710 sound card (envy24 chipset), and at maximum volume it's not quite as loud as I'd like it to be. What's a good amp nowadays for $100 or less? Also should I consider replacing my sound card?

    LG Xenon - Wifi?

    Everything I read about the Xenon said that it was going to have wifi (ie this) but I checked the phone out at an AT&T store today and it didn't have wifi (very nice phone though). Anyone know if it has wifi that can be enabled somehow perhaps? Two of the reviews on AT&T's site say it is "wi-fi...

    SSD's - not so silent

    It was my understanding that SSD's were silent, but that's not the case with the OCZ 64gb V2 I bought. Here's the electrical noise it makes at idle and load (recorded as an external drive):

    I have a pixel (red I think) that only shows up on a black screen. Would this be a stuck sub pixel? Can these be fixed with programs that flash colors? edit* It's stuck on backgrounds of all colors, just more visible on black.

    Wireless card causes popping sound

    I've noticed that whenever I play a movie/game/etc. I get a slight popping sound every 30-60 seconds from my speakers, and through some detective work I've found that disabling my network card (D-Link DWA-552) gets rid of it all together. Has anyone heard of this problem or know of a way to fix it?

    Can a powersupply cause hard locks?

    I'm trying to figure out the source of random hard locks in my system. They're random because the system can run stress tests for 30 mins then hard lock when idling. I've narrowed it down to the ram or power supply (2 year old Thermaltake 430watt). Has anyone ever had a power supply cause...

    System is hardlocking

    My computer (sig) has been randomly hardlocking (maybe 1-2 times a week) in windows and in games. Which components generally cause hard locks? Changing video card drivers did not fix it. Pretty sure it's not the mobo/cpu/ram/hard drive as they are brand new. Video card was bought used but seems...

    MSI mobo not running in dual channel

    I just built a machine with a MSI P45 Neo3 FR mobo, with 2x 2gb sticks of DDR2 800, and on the POST screen it says it's running in single channel. I've tried 2 sets of ram, with the same result.
