    GUIDE: High Res 27" 2560x1440 Monitors, wuw to know!

    I decided to pull the trigger on the Shimian Lite model this weekend and it was already shipped out today (Monday). The fedex tracking number estimates 7 days for delivery though.

    Supertalent ME 64gb

    Newegg has this thing now for only $139: I know this is an Indilinx based SSD, but it seems like all the nifty firmware releases are being put out by OCZ. Can you flash the Supertalent drive with the same firmware? My guess is...

    OCZ Vertex 120gb vs Intel Gen2 80gb SSD

    does intel also gc in the background? or does it just write as efficiently as possible? also, TRIM does not work currently in Linux - it probably won't be until 2.6.32.

    monitor advice...?

    just got in on the dell 1907fp deal, and actually got a pretty nice monitor: samsung panel, no dead pixels, great colors. i was worried i'd get the AU Optronics panel. anyway, here's the problem. 1280x1024 is not enough! i don't understand why all 19" non-ws panels are limited to 1280x1024...

    How is the 6800 so much better than 6600 GT?

    does the 256mb or 128mb card clock higher? i'm guessing the 128 does? most of the 256mb boards i've seen come at 600mhz instead of 700mhz. is having 256mb on the 6800NU important for games like Doom 3?

    Please help me to prove me parents wrong

    mr. pro network technician: there is a very simple solution that has already been mentioned. why don't you connect his box directly to the intarweb, leaving your machine out of the equation? if it's shit AOL's fault, then he can't put you to blame. if it's suddenly fast, guess whose fault it is?
