    places to find inexpensive 1U servers

    /says to check computer forums //is on a computer forum no, no; i kid. ebay is generally my go-to for this stuff, as much as it does suck sometimes. it's better if you're in/near a major city, because you can save a fair amount of cash not having to ship the heavier stuff. i've still...

    Unsure of what/any upgrades: Help with CPU/Mobo advice?

    Well, my concern with going to an i7 on the X79 platform is that it's basically $700 and up to get the cheapest 6-core with a motherboard. More realistically it's pretty much the entire $1000 budget just to swap out for fimilar specs (minus the necessary sata 6gb/s ports and the possibility of...

    Unsure of what/any upgrades: Help with CPU/Mobo advice?

    As the title (clumsily) states, I'm thinking of upgrading my core pc (Asus M4A78T-E and Phenom II 1090T). Not for any major reasons; by and large it does what I need it to do. I'm especially pleased with the cpu, but if I have one particular fault with the combo it's that the mobo has no sata...

    Gigabyte 990FXA-UD7 - Cooling and Misc

    Howdy howdy. I'm planning on some upgrades for my current Phenom II X6 1100T (I'm not looking to upgrade the CPU at this time) system, as I'm really not pleased with the original motherboard (low number of PCI x16, no sata 6gb/s, etc) and am currently looking at the Gigabyte 990FXA-UD7 as a...

    Recurring Issue - MEB cases

    I say recurring because I'm constantly finding evidence of people asking about them, but never finding solutions or solutions that appear to still exist. It's because of that later bit; the fact that most of my searches turn up years-old dead links; that I'm making a new thread for the issue...

    Nong Shim Shin Noodle Ramyun Noodle 20-Pack $12

    So wait... someone makes a thread about a hard drive, or a computer case, and then someone comes in complaining about the item. 9000 people jump up that person's ass. If it's about a bowl of noodles though, you better watch out OP. Also above: diabetes, how do they work.

    Seagate Barracuda Green 2 TB Internal Hard Drive $69.99

    Too bad I'm losing faith in "green" drives. After 10+ years, I've come to the conclusion that they are generally only good as [insert: annoying] secondary drives. Not bad as just a storage drive (I've only had them fail on me after several years, all in raid 0 arrays), but there's never been a...

    Why yes, yes it is. However out of the two items that I referenced, the Sword is just plain unavailable and the V9 is not applicable. "Coupon code ttcpn-vd5000bna-mem10 only applies to certain store items. None of these items are in your shopping basket." There is this for $49, which is not...

    Only Sword I see on the store is this, with is $399. The V9 Black Edition is here, and that's $99. Not sure where you're getting your prices here.

    Sapphire 5870 @ newegg $389.99 shipped

    Honestly? I consider rebates in general enough of a pain in the ass. Also, for 90% of my online transactions I use a pre-paid GreenDot card because I've been screwed over with my checking accounts one too many time. I'm not even positive how Bing CB works, so I don't even know how I'd get the...

    Sapphire 5870 @ newegg $389.99 shipped

    HEY, no worry, let's just keep stupid political crap out of this. Last I noticed, my desktop was registered as independent. Frankly, TigerDirect is cheaper, so I might have to go with them. Then again, I have yet to ever use BingCB and now sure if I want the hassle of starting.

    XFX 5970 $729.99 - $89.79 (BCB) = $640.20

    That's because it is expensive. Even if you can afford it, $650 for a consumer graphics card is expensive. I love the little bugger anyhow, though.

    Sorry, I don't trust Sideshow Collectibles to have anything "eligible" that I'd want. I've had history with them for years before I ever heard of this forum, and while not a bad group (I've spent hundred there over the years) I just don't think that the $50 would buy me anything particularly...

    Nong Shim Shin Noodle Ramyun 20pk of 4.2oz packages for $13

    Yeah, that's a great idea, except that the nearest decent one is Boston and that's about a 7-hour drive for me. Also why I hate deals on Frys and the like.

    XFX HD5870 *New Model* $419.99 - 12.5% BCB *Instock at TigerDirect*

    This. If you arn't tweaking the card, the warranty makes it an OK deal. The deal's only good because of the price, the lowered capabilities keep it from being a "great" deal. That being said, I don't need one badly enough.

    37" 720P (1366x768) LG 37LH20 $420 Shipped with 12.5% Bing Cashback at CompUsa

    no, it really isn't. if "large" is your only issue then sure, but I doublt this would make a very good TV and an even worse monitor (that res at that size at monitor distance? i'd feel like I was back in gradeschool, size be damned).

    ATI Radeon HD 5850 1GB OEM 229.49 after BCB

    Nah, that portion of my comment is more aimed at the people freaking about a 3 month warranty period. The bait-and-switch is worthy of a return if you are pissed, but the warranty itself isn't a huge issue to worry about.

    ATI Radeon HD 5850 1GB OEM 229.49 after BCB

    Oh no, not missing it at all. Just not the end of the world, imho (then again, it was OOS before I got the change to bite). If you can't talk them into extending the warranty, then you either return the card to buy a separate one.

    ATI Radeon HD 5850 1GB OEM 229.49 after BCB

    Again in the same thread: this. You don't like OEM warranties? Suck it up or buy an extended warranty. I'm with the crowd that has never had a graphics card die before replacement if it wasn't within 60 days. The only card I've ever had die was about 6 months after I bought it... because...

    Can anyone find a HD 5970?

    *drools* Actually would be a good deal for me; I need one now, and am upgrading later in the year to a desktop to run two cards. 8gb of graphics memory? Yes please. I have to assume that not going with "$666.66" is intentional, but I would find it worth the penny for the moment of amusement.
