    FS: IDE - Internal dock and drive trays

    Thought I would post this before I forget. I will get the model info later when I get home. As noted in the title. I have a 5 1/4 dock with removable drive bays for IDE HDD's which I am in the process of removing from my storage pool. Likely no one is interested, but I thought that I would...

    My first IPS panel - Acer XB270HU

    So I finally convinced myself to make the jump to an IPS panel, and obviously spent extra to get a gaming model. I can't believe that I waited this long to try IPS. The image quality is excellent, which I'm sure is partly due to the increased resolution. I did spend the time to calibrate...

    newegg "WL" drives

    I gather "WL" means White Label. Lately there are numerous drives available at newegg with this brand. Has anyone used any of these drives or have any other first hand experience with them? The few that I looked at have good reviews. I ordered a 6TB model and I should have time to get it...

    Monitor calibration

    Up until now, I've done just the basic monitor setup and tweaking using the Windows config tool. But I've decided it may well be worth it to spend the money and get the hardware needed to actually calibrate the monitor(s). I figure between the monitors on my desk, a couple of laptops, and a...

    m.2 drive comparison

    So obviously the 950 EVO appears to be the drive to get, and the price has dropped quite a bit. However, I see numerous other brands/models available at various price points. I haven't been keeping up with hardware changes, and while I am already running a SATA SSD, the new motherboard I...

    Race Sim hardware

    Any other dedicated Race Sim players here? What hardware are you using? I've been into race sims almost as long as I've been into computers. I upgraded my first computer from a 486 SX 33 to a Pentium 60 simply to get the first NASCAR Racing game by Papyrus and I've been hooked ever since...

    desktop speaker selection

    I'm currently using the Logitech Z-5500's. They are OK for what they are, but I am wanting to upgrade. My future plans are to move my current Onkyo AVR to my desktop. That likely won't happen until summer or more likely next Christmas. Until then, I was hoping to simply replace the current...

    SSD on a P55 motherboard

    OK. So after all the hype, I'm looking at installing an SSD in my main rig. I'm currently using a Gigabyte GA-P55A-UD4P. The board has two SATA III ports, however, it uses a Marvel chipset. With that said, I was looking at the Kingston HyperX 120GB (based on the Hard review). I'm just...

    Storage ideas

    I've been looking and trying to decide upon a storage solution. A NAS seems to be the way to go. And although I know that I could use a PC, cost isn't much different. At least not for what I've been looking at. I'm considering this unit: Thecus N4100PRO (...

    MSI K8N Neo4 SATA setup

    OK, here's the story. The MSI K8N Neo4 Platinum that I'm running in my file "server" has 8 SATA ports. So far, I've only been using SATA1-4 which are easily setup in the BIOS to resemble IDE drives. Just enable the port, connect a SATA HDD, and you're ready to go. I'm now trying to add...

    New Keyboard...

    I'm in the market for a new keyboard. I'm mainly wanting a KB with lit keys, but programable keys would also be a plus. I've been looking at the usual models (Razer Tarantula, Logitech G11 and G15, Saitek), but I haven't decided on anything yet. I'm mainly wanting everyones opinions that has...
