    Recommend an Awesome Game!

    If your pc can handle it, Metro 2033 was a ton of fun. All the Half Life games were awesome, Dino Crisis 1 and 2 for the Playstation. Oh and all the Assassin's Creed games have been sweet.

    Recommend an Awesome Game!

    Dang that brings back memories. The only game I can think of that required that you dip your instruction manual in water to progress. Good times.

    Need a new TV

    I was debating between my panny 65" and the LG 65" with the passive glasses.The pq on the LG is pretty good but It had some pretty bad bleeding on the LG. It is edge lit from what I remember and going with the panasonic was one of the best purchases ever. Zero problems aside from DNLA issues...

    120G SSD for 99 today only

    As long as the reviews on the ocz ssds are bad, I'm staying away. Micro centers reviews all seem favorable but everywhere else scar me away. I'd rather have an intel or samsung

    Need a new TV

    If you want to save a few bucks on your electric bill and don't care about having the best picture, get a LCD/led. Even the new Led lit tvs can't match the black levels of an older Plasma as well as the pq. As far as a samsung, I wouldn't touch one with a 10 foot pole after their lawsuits and...

    Need Help w/ Cooling HOT Receiver

    It would be easy to hook up a usb port to a couple of 140mm fans in the space. I would maybe consider tackling the problem at the source. If there is room, maybe open up the receiver and throw in a 80/92mm fan right on the heatsinks.

    Low power, "good enough" performing HTPC?

    I've had some people tell me that my Plasma is a electric hog and is horrible with power. The cost maybe $30 bucks more a year. I had a point I was going to make but my a.d.d is kicking in and I'm to lazy to undo what I just typed. 30 watts here, 50 watts there, I guess if I was that worried...

    Engadget: How-to: Build a multi-talented HTPC for (roughly) $1,000

    Get a cheaper 1155 board ($50-$75) $40 case with psu, I-5 2120 ($175 ish) 4 gigs of ddr3 ($50 ish) Gt430 $50 2tb hard drive ($150 ish) and maybe even a 64-128gig ssd ($100 ish) $600= DONE and that is even overkill to some extent.

    Low power, "good enough" performing HTPC?

    +8, don't bother with an atom as it will be struggling. The 1155 is the way to go unless you can find a deal on an older 775 build. I have a dual core 775 with 2 gigs of ram and a 430gt video card and it plays anything I throw at it;blu-ray, 3-d movies, whatever with out any problems

    New Home Cinema/HIFI system Newb

    It really depends on what you want. Is 5.1 surround good enough or do you want 7.1? Do you want a receiver with networking to stream stuff like Pandora? Do you need it to play in 2 different zones? I got a deal on a Denon 2112 and I love it but it may be overkill for you and the price has gone...

    HDD prices

    Seems that a lot of hds have had issues recently. I would go with WD just because they are so big. They seem to take care of warranty stuff fairly well too.

    Request for suggestions

    If I am casually listening to music while I am doing something, I keep one of my subs on in zone 1 and turn my ceiling speakers on to take care of the mids and highs. If I am out side, I have porch speakers and I turn on the other sub that is closer and even though it is inside, it is still very...

    Music too loud. Talking too quiet

    If you really want to go all technical and you have some sort of adjustment, the human voice is generally somewhere in the 1K range and you could bump that up a little but as others have stated, cut out the lows a little, bump up the center channel as well as trying dts.
