    ASUS VH236H just kicked the bucket. Help me pick a new one please.

    I'll try to keep this short so you busy guys wont TLDR on me. My ASUS Gaming monitor just decided to turn it self off and on about five times and then shut off. I unplugged it for a while then plugged it back in. I have managed to make it stay on for the time being. I am typing this on it...

    I am so bored. All these games suck.

    Is it just me? None of these new crap games have me excited at all. I have a minor fascination with Bullet Storm, but Cliffy B is a D-bag and his prior statements don't exactly fill me with confidence. I remember having so much fun playing Hitman, but I stopped buying them a while ago when I...

    Linksys Router DNS issues.

    I don't know what has changed, but the last three linksys routers I setup would not pass DNS information properly. I had a customer swap one out for a different model but it had the same problem. So for now, I am entering the DNS manually. It's not a big deal for me. My customers won't enjoy...

    Just Cause 2. Why Shouldn't I?

    Every time I see a video of this game, I want it. The story appears meaningless but the game play looks like a riot. So, go ahead, lay it on me. It runs like poo on a PC right? I have a PS3, but I wasted my money on Batman for that and not my PC. I really hate game controllers unless I'm...

    Ok gents. I currently use WinXP32. I plan to upgrade to a Q6600 and 4 gigs of ram. Will I have to purchase Vista 64bit or can I somehow get XP64 for nothing.
