    Triple Monitor Support - On Board Chipset

    Interesting site. I'll have to give that a spin. I've had every type of build, hidden, MicroATX, full sized atx, 24 slot 4u server size, and I'm sure a few more here and there. So I figured this round I'd go for something new. Thanks for the suggestions and assistance.

    Triple Monitor Support - On Board Chipset

    I do not really game much anymore, no time. I watch a few movies while working, play some old games like Red Alert and Diablo 2, trying to teach my 10 year old what games I used to play. I have not bought a newer game in probably 7 years for my PC. I mostly play games on Xbox One on my big...

    Triple Monitor Support - On Board Chipset

    I had not considered a riser card. If I went that way I could go with a cheaper Rizen CPU and save a lot of cash, even with a descent GPU. Let me look at that route.

    Triple Monitor Support - On Board Chipset

    Apologies, my lack of detailed purpose may have strayed your response. I am going case less. I am planning to mount this on the wall above my desk, and thus the reason for minimal cabling. Excluding a GFX card would ensure the setup did not extend out from the wall too far, and be extremely...

    Triple Monitor Support - On Board Chipset

    I am looking to upgrade, and was looking to go as thin as possible from an overall height perspective so I was hoping to go without a GPU. I have not upgraded in years, still running a 1090T on an old Gigabyte board, at least its using DDR3 I guess. Again going for minimal footprint, so I was...

    Wall Mount Bracket Recommendations

    Thanks for the replies. There is a Mount-It and Cheetah from Amazon I am looking at. I do believe I need one that does give the tilt option, as because of the width I am nearly forced to mount it above my light switch at least. If it is that high it will have to tilt down for proper viewing...

    Wall Mount Bracket Recommendations

    Just purchased a 70" Vizio TV and 54" sound bar, now I need a good wall mount. I was looking at a swivel mount but I now do not think I need one. I want a mount that sets the TV as flush as possible to the wall. So who has recommendations, I have searched but love the knowledge of the...

    Computer Desk (3 monitors wont fit)

    I built a monitor stand out of galvanized pipe from Lowes. I built it so it goes between my desk and wall, so it kind of leans against the back of my desk. I have three 23" mounted in portrait and a 15" on top of the center one. Was about $50-$60 in all. Might not be fancy but it works and is...

    Samsung Galaxy S III (Verizon) is amazing! Just sayin'

    I must be missing something. I have had the phone since it was released and its a good phone, smooth, yata yata, some cool features, but I'm not seeing what all the buzz is about. And no I'm not an Apple guy stuck with an Android phone. Just seems like most other smartphones out there, and I...

    Turtle Beach a good choice for a budget Xbox 360 headset?

    I had a pair of Turtle Beach X3s for a while, not real happy with them. They were uncomfortable after a while, caused my ears to sweat. I upgraded to X31s (for $30) and like the fit much better, however, I do not like the popping I get from the 2.4GHz wireless router. If my son sits between me...

    Antec Case & PSU Combo Lucky Draw!!!!!

    Love their stuff simply because its reliable and cost effective. I've had a number of different power supplies over the years, usually cheap brands, and just about every one of them have failed me, usually catastrophically and always taking something else with them. I started researching Antec...

    Phonedog reviews the Samsung Galaxy SIII

    That sucks, the review is worthless since its done on an International version with a quad core. The US only gets a Dual Core is BS. I sure hope the difference isn't a killer, but I bet there will be a noticeable difference.

    Bluetooth ear buds

    I have a Samsung HM6450 that I use. Its a single bluetooth earpiece, but comes with some accessories that plug in such as two ear buds. They plug into the same micro-usb port that you plug in the charger to. It also comes with an adapter to use regular ear buds. The only problem I have is the...

    External hard drive dead?

    Yea, I've had more than one power supply for my external drives crash before, or even the internal power board croak, but the brick and HDD were fine. Slap it inside and see what happens, or if you have a SATA to USB thingy use that.

    Install Case Fan into my HTPC Cabinet

    If you have a 12volt fan you need a 12volt or lower brick (most fans will run between 5V and 12V, but do not go higher than the rated value), if its a 2amps fan, you need a brick that will do at least 2amps.

    Install Case Fan into my HTPC Cabinet

    You can build a very simple circuit for this. Grab a power brick from an old something or another, or grab one at a local electronics store. We did this for a buddy who's stereo received kept over heating. There is an adjustment so you can tweak when the fans come on and go off. He put one fan...
