    Anonymous Planning To Stop CISPA

    I agree with freedom of internet etc, freedom of speech etc. But to ask internet warriors to come out of their basements to protest in sunlight ...... Besides, if those folks really come out, you think some face recognition software wont be used. Unless they wear their Wookie...

    Which one is best? OCZ, Mushkin or Corsair?

    I have OCZ on one PC - It has run for over two years very strong. I have 2 x 2 gig kit of mushkin on my gamer PC - the stuff is excellent - got it when it was over $300 - you can get it now for about 140 on the egg and both are seem to be great stuff. I just recieved my 2 x 2 gig of gskill -...

    GTX or New GTS

    I have a question that could help make the decision, and I haven't run across an answer. Will the card be used for media - HD content? Does the GTS have the same benefits that the newer 8600 series has for encoding content? If I was to use the card for more than games - then I would consider...

    GTX or New GTS

    For what it is worth - when you go to nvidia's website - which card is the 'top of the line' ? So you can get a top of the line card for the price of a nice midrange card. I'd take the GTX. One thing to consider when buying PC parts is some will OC, some won't. I'll get the next top...

    Logitech Z 5500 vs THX Z-5300e

    I currently own both sets sitting in the same room (the z5300 actually use an audigy 2 and the z5500 use onboard sound), and the z5500 speakers are definately better in every aspect than the z5300 speakers. I listen to them both, but when I want to hear something and crank it, I shut down...

    I was having the same issues, a couple days ago. I switched my ram to 1:1 and doing that allowed my to update my bios for my mb. After I updated bios and verified everything connected properly - everything became a breeze. Good luck

    How much power will these specs need

    Look at some of the reviews for the psu before you buy it. I had one, it was stable and it ran my rig quite well. BUT, there are is a flaw that someone else can explain better than I can or run a search. I replaced that psu with a pcp 750 quad. People seem to be really high on the corsair...

    Is this $230 rosewill psu good?

    I think the only reason this questions was asked was because the newegg combo deal offered. A q6600 for 279 and this rosewill for 100 bucks off. I think I will take the plunge and see if this PSU is worth a crap (along with the q6600). I already have a pcp 750 quad running my PC and have...

    Games That Will Take Advantage of 4GB of RAM

    I currently go over 2 gigs - when I play bf2142 at 1600 x 1200 at 2aa and use Vista Ultimate 64- bit. I bought the mushkin in sig and it smoothed out my gameplay just like going to 2 gigs from 1 gig in bf2 using windows xp. I have a g-15 keyboad and it can monitor usage of ram.

    Looking for 4gb of OCable Ram

    2x2GB Fun: Mushkin HP2-6400

    I read a thread on the mushkin forum indicating they are testing other IC's but the HP2 and the the XP2 models all currently use the same IC. The lower priced models use another IC. Either way - that is what I ordered and I hope they don't suck.

    I will get mine set from newegg on Monday. How would someone know if they were 'swimming' and where did you hear about this? Also as an fyi - this model uses the same ic's as the other two more expensive models - they just binned differently per one of their folks on the mushkin forum.
