    About to pull the trigger on a Qnix QX2710 or X-Star DP2710 had some questions though

    I've been doing some research on what 1440p monitor to buy, and since my budget is between $300 and $400 it seems the Korean models are what fits that. The monitor is going to be connected to my computer full-time so I don't need multi input, and I plan to mess around with overclocking it if...

    On the fence about these two PSU's

    I'm looking to upgrade my PSU now, to be ready for my future upgrade in the coming months. I'm waiting to run an x38 Penryn based system maybe even with a G92 if they are out by then, if not then a good G80. I would'nt think about running my new system on my current PSU (Aspire 520W), even...

    It seems like both games hit shelves today. I'm going to be picking up Forza most likely today if I can find it, and waiting on reviews for Shadowrun. Seems like two big online titles anyways. :)

    Office Flooded 2 of 3 computers survived

    Alright, as the title says, the office that one of my relatives owns got flooded with about 6 inches of water a week ago. All the APC battery back-up's shorted (good thing). 3 computers were on the ground. 2 eMachines and 1 Dell. The Dell is the newest one (bought a little over a year ago)...

    This card worth it? 7950GT

    It seems like a good price, I'm just wondering if anyone has had any experience with this card. I'm building a new system for a friend, and I was looking at this for the video card. He's mainly going to be playing BF2, DoD:S, and maybe a couple of other games coming out that seem interesting...

    "Fatal System Error"

    Alright, so my dad is on my mom's computer and he decides to install another version of Norton AntiVirus (Because for some reason they have this weird case of paranoia were they install a new version of Norton every 3 damn months). So while he's installing it our power goes out for 5 minutes...

    Cleaning an LCD

    Sorry if this has been asked before, but I did a search and could'nt find anything on it. Now, I've owned a CRT all my life, until recently when I got an LCD. Question is, is there any special way of cleaning an LCD?

    HL2: Aftermath Renamed Seems like good news for HL2 fans in that they're now going to make episodic content for HL2 building up the story more and more. Valve is going to kill my wallet with the SiN episodes, and now the HL2 ones.

    eVGA 6800GS

    I'm wondering if it's worth the buy. I currently have a 6600GT, but it's not cutting it for me anymore. So since the 6800GS is so cheap I was thinking about getting it to hold me off until the release of DX10 cards, and their price comes to be reasonable...

    Looking for 2GB

    Alright right now I have 1GB (2x512) of Crucial Ballistix DDR2 667 here. I was thinking of going to 1.5GB and getting another 512, but in that other thread I was told that it'll run in single-channel. So I'm looking to get 2x1024, I'll get one now, and another later. I'm looking at the...

    Buying a new case

    It's time for me to let go of my current case (Aspire X-Dreamer II a.k.a. POS). I bought it to hold me off for a while back in Febuary, and now I'm looking to buy a new solid case to keep for a while. Both that I'm looking at so far are from Thermaltake. Tsunami (Good Deal)...

    Could this be because of my Monitor?

    Alright so I got a new Samsung 740N yesterday, and I'm trying to run all my games at the native resolution (1280x1024). I tried to bump up my resolution in CoD2 and it dropped my FPS so low that it was unplayable, so I put it back to 1024x768, and the problem was corrected. But I'm getting...

    17" Monitors

    Alright, I'm going to be getting a 17" monitor, because it's time to get rid of this old 7 year old CRT. (Even though it's still strong and healthy) I'm looking at these 17's I'm kind of aiming towards the Samsung or the Planar, because I heard they would be the most reliable. Planar...

    Problem with PSU Burning Out

    Well the title basically says it all. I have this other computer that I've needed to change the PSU about 3 times already. It has these sort of power hangs. It won't turn on now, and that little green light on the mobo is'nt on either, so I don't know what the hell keeps burning these PSU's...

    MX518 vs Diamondback Plasma

    Basically I dont know what to go with, the Logitech MX518 or the Razor Diamondback L.E. they both basically have the same specs and the only other reason that I'm looking at the Razor is because the blue lighting in it goes well with the lighting in my computer. Razor Logitech
