    New Asus VW246H looks different from older one

    I've been using an Asus VW246H monitor for about eight months and snagged another last week while it was on sale. I have the two side by side and have noticed there is a considerable difference in appearance between the two. Both monitors have been reset to factory settings through the OSD...

    New rig boots, no video display

    Tried out a roommates monitor, no issues. I guess my six year old Viewsonic's DVI was dead... I've got a different monitor in front of me now, everything is working great. Thanks to everyone that helped.

    Why should I wait?

    I'll be playing from a 20" 1680x1050 monitor. Not looking for anything special from the motherboard other than the ability to overclock, reliability is a plus too.

    Why should I wait?

    In that case I'll probably just get the 560 Ti. Any particular SSD I should be looking at?

    Why should I wait?

    I am this (|----|) close to pulling the trigger and driving to Microcenter today to buy all the parts I need to build a new PC. The only thing that's hanging me up is the impending release of Bulldozer and Sandy Bridge-E. I have my sights set on the i5-2500K which I can get from MC for $180. I...

    New build, please comment/critique

    Native resolution on the monitor is 1680x1050. I've been looking at this Geforce GTX 560 Ti: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130604 Could someone shed more light on the CPU issue? I didn't quite follow how things could change with the release of BF3 and Skyrim...

    Best deal on PS3?

    My dad is looking to compliment a home theater setup at our summer house that we rent out with a PS3, mostly because of its Blu-ray capabilities. The guy doesn't like to pay sales tax or shipping so he sent me to the internet to find him a deal. Anyone got any suggestions?

    More RAM or hold out?

    Last time I was playing anything was Battlefield 2, I haven't really kept up with recent PC games. Any chance I would run Crysis decently?

    More RAM or hold out?

    I'm a poor college kid working at a restaurant bussing and cleaning dishes, right now I've got about $600 in my bank account but I'd rather save what I can.

    More RAM or hold out?

    I've been using the same rig that I put together for about three years now and it's been in pretty good condition besides a few setbacks. A little over a year ago I screwed something up and was left with only one stick of 512 DDR where I used to have two. My specs are: MSI K8N Neo Platinum...

    Problem with TV

    My dad bought a 27" Panasonic HDTV (4:3, don't ask) a few years ago and I've noticed that even though it says it supports either 480p or 1080i, the 1080i image is stretched and cropped. When running our digital cable receiver into the TV's HD component inputs, the image at the top looks normal...

    Xbox 360 Woes

    I have saved up $400+ for an Xbox 360, and I would be good to go except for these stupid rumors about a PGR3 bundle in August. Some sources say August, some say Xmas, and all will concede that it is only a rumor. How much validity would you guys say this rumor actually has?

    Buy a 360 online or at an outlet?

    I'm trying to weigh the pro's and con's of paying sales tax vs. shipping. I was also waiting for the overstock deal but it looks like it's through. Where should I get one?

    What 360 games?

    I bought Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow and it came with a free year of Xbox live on one of the old school subscription cards. Will that get me a year on the 360 or do I need to buy one of those gold cards?

    What 360 games?

    I noticed the thread about the deal from overstock. It looks like they're out of stock for now . . . should I stick around to see if it comes back or just jump the gun and buy one at Target or something.

    What 360 games?

    I am seriously considering buying a 360 in the very near future, but I'm not sure what games to get. One game that I absolutely must have is GRAW, and I am considering PD0 but I'm not sure. I also wanted to get NCAA 07 but I'm hearing a lot of crap about it that's really turning me off. I'm...

    Need advice

    Not quite a 50" plasma but the TV we have downstairs is an HDTV. I'm thinking that either my roomie is going to bring his HDTV to college but if that falls through then I'm going to hook it up to my VX2025WM with the MS VGA Adapter. Any opinions on that?

    My speakers are only analog, does that mean I won't be able to get true surround sound with the Xbox 360?
