I have an Auria 27" that is running at 2560x1440 as my main monitor, and I was planning on adding a 1080P 39" HDTV to my room for a larger gaming display. Will it possible to mirror both without forcing the 27" into a lower res, assuming both won't be on at the same time? Or is it possible to...

I have an I3-540 in my HTPC and I've noticed that in one of my programs (XBMC) it's been running incredibly sluggish. I thought it was my OCZ Agility SSD (which is horrendously unreliable) so I swaped it out for a new crucial M4 SSD. Unfortunately, that wasn't the problem, as it still persists...
I've decided to ditch my desktop and get a laptop. I went with an HP Pavillion DV7TQE which now come with Beats enhanced audio out. I have a pair of M-Audio Studiophile AV 30's and an ASW-8 subwoofer laying around. Both are self-powered.
Is the Pantone version exactly the same as the X-rite version? I'd hate to pull the trigger and find out it's an older model, etc.
Plus there is a $25 rebate!
I'm trying to spend around $200-300 on a new 22-24" monitor, and I'm not sure if I can get a decent one at that price range. It will not be my primary display, which is why I'm not going all out. I currently have an HP DV7TQE 17" notebook which comes with one of the better 17" notebook screens...
Here is what I would like to have, but I know such a beast may not be possible.
1. High quality display. IPS isn't necessary, as I'm more concerned about color and contrast then viewing angles. Something along the lines of the Macbook Pros/Air's TN display would work.
2. Either the...

I was running a pair of the BB Insignia specials with my panny digital receiver and TSC 10" sub, but now that I'm forced into a jail cell sized room, I need to downsize my setup. I can either go with an active 2.0 setup and pair it with my TSC sub, or get 2 passive speakers and purchase a T-amp...
I currently have an E8400 for my primary rig. I just purchased an i3-540 and mobo to replace it. My goal was to reduce power consumption/heat and still retain comparable performance levels. I got the i3 combo for what the E8400 cpu alone is worth, so I figure I didn't lose much by making the...
I have two intel cpus at home, a Celeron E3200 2.4ghz and a C2D E5200 2.5ghz that need to go into 2 machines. I'm trying to determine which one I should use for my work computer, and which one for my HTPC. Whichever one is going in the HTPC will need to be OCed to 3ghz as that seems to be the...
1) What will you be doing with this PC? Gaming? Photoshop? Web browsing? etc
-Web browsing with many windows/tabs, excel spreadsheets, and remote desktop into a remote server simultaneously. Also need support for two lcds at once. Main requirement that I can run all of this in Windows 7 smoothly...
I'm looking for a microatx case with the following.
1. Decent cooling abilities, as I will eventually have a 5850 in it as well as plans to OC the cpu to 4ghz.
2. Needs silent potential (ie: silent fans, hsf, etc). So that means no cases with vents all over the place.
3. Has to be able to...
My requirements are the following:
1. Low power usage
2. Ability to accommodate 6-8 hard drives
3. Enough performance to stream 1080p movies from
4. Cost is a factor, so I'm looking for more bang for the buck as opposed to flat out the best performance.
I have the enclosure and I have...
About every 30seconds to a minute, I hear one of my hard drives spin up, at which point the computer begins to choke for a few seconds (videos get choppy, can't click the mouse, can't type, etc.) Is one of my drives on its way out? How can i find out which one it is without physically unhooking...
Anyone have any experience with them? I've tried doing a search here, but most people have only used the more expensive alternatives. I'm not trying to drop $200 on an ergotron or doublesight stand. Especially if both of my monitors barely cost $200 together.
I'm looking at something like...
Yes I know, stupid question, but I've tried googling the answer to no avail. I'm fairly n00bish at OCing, but I do understand that raising the voltage will raise the temperature of the cpu. But what about bumping up FSB or multiplier settings?
Looking at getting a Scythe Mini Ninja for my E8400 and running it passively for my HTPC setup. My Silverstone HTPC case has 2 80mm fans in the back directly behind the CPU, and it's receiving air from a 92mm intake up front.
I'm currently running a Corsair 850W PSU which I know is overkill. So now I'm looking to sell it, purchase an Antec Neopower 500W since they are pretty inexpensive (plus I really want a modular PSU), and put the remainder towards something else. I have the following:
E5200 Oced to 3.5Ghz...
Now that I'm back on a Windows rig, I miss a few features from OSX, namely the spaces feature. Being able to switch between multiple "working spaces" was fantastic. I could have all my graphic stuff on one screen, browsers on another, etc. Is there a third party app that can do the same thing in...
Well I decided to quit being cheap and pulled the trigger on a P180 locally. I was wondering how many fans you guys have running in your rigs and how are they orientated. I would prefer to use the least amount of fans as possible since the main goal of purchasing this case was to build a quiet...
I'm looking to replace my loud Antec 900. I like the P180+ series but they are a bit more than I'm willing to spend. I'm looking for something under $100 shipped that is comparable.
What I want:
Can fit an ATI 4870 and at least 5 hard drives
Every single Dell rig i've used was damn near silent. Try as I might, I could never duplicate the same noise levels with my own builds. I'm sure dell tosses bottom of the barrel el-cheapo fans into their systems, so what's the secret?
I have two receivers in my room. One for my bookshelves for my PC, and another for my home theater setup. I currently have a single powered subwoofer, and was wondering if I could safely share it between the two sources?
I just scored a set of M-Audio BX-5's for practically nothing, but they don't come with any documentation.
I'm not an audiophile and I have no idea what these settings mean :o
Sorry for the blurry cell pic, but they read:
Acoustic Space : 0, -2, -4db
High Freq: -2, 0, +2db...
I have an Antec 900 and the blue lights are annoying. I was looking to replace the 3 120mm fans and I was looking on recommendations on fans that don't have LED lighting and are as quiet as possible. I have a Yate Loon fan lying around. Are they still pretty quiet compared to what's out there?
Yes I know I can rig something up to see the resolution difference in MS Paint or Photoshop, but I wanted to see a picture of two physical monitors with the same screen size, but with different aspect ratios (ie: 24" LCD 16:9 vs 24" LCD 16:10).
I just bought a 3870 and plan on using it with a 3450 I have laying around. I want my gaming rig to double as my HTPC as well. I was hoping I could run my 22" LCD and my 46" DLP TV off of the 3870, and my 17" LCD off the 3470. I should have no issues with this correct?
I bought this card awhile back for my C2D E4300 rig. However, I went over a year without touching my computer since I was primarily using my Macbook. Now I'm back in the PC game and recently upgraded my CPU to a C2D e8400 and mobo to a Gigabyte EP45-DS3R. I still have my EVGA 8800GTS 320mb and I...
For some reason web pages have started to take an insanely long time to load (minutes to load a page) however my network connection appears to be fine. Torrent files are downloading at a normal rate, and windows cannot find anything wrong with the connection. Reseting my modem and router did not...
I used to be able to click on a video link, and WMP would open and play it. For some reason it doesn't work anymore and I get the error: "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage."
What could be the problem?
I'm using Vista, WMP11 and IE7.
I'm set on the following components:
$115 - E4300
$120 - MS Vista 64-bit Home Premium OEM
$50 - XClio 500W
$45 - LITE-ON SATA DVDRW 20x
I will need the following:
Possibly a sound card (is it worth it?)
I'm trying to keep my budget around $400 for...
I have a 2 year old Dell 17" lcd (don't know the model number) that refuses to hold a signal. It would show the boot up sequence just fine, but when it hits windows, the screen goes blank. I have to manually turn it off and on which will only hold the picture for a split second before going...
I'm looking to mount my 22" ws lcd with two 17" lcds (one on each side) but all the mounts I've seen are at least $200 and up. Are there any other affordable mounts that I can use? There are plenty of cheap dual mounts, but not triple.
Just got a Logitech Revolution, and I was gonna have a custom 1030 mousepad created. However the image I want to use is a plain white background with a black sillohuete (sp) in the center. Is this going to cause any problems? Also, which surface is best for laser? Soft or hard?
I recently bought a 22" to go with my dual 17" lcds. The problem is that although the 22" will be great for games, it's a bit much for everyday tasks like browsing and word processing. I was thinking of placing my two 17" next to each other and mount my 22" directly above them and just swing it...
