    T260 owners. screen settings?

    I just got a T260 and think I have my settings pretty good, but I am wondering what everyone else has theirs at. Mine: Brightnesss: 100 Contrast: 65 Red: 37 Green: 37 Blue: 20 Gamma: Mode1 Sharpness: 70 These are all the relevant modified changes.. This is over DVI. P.S. great...

    How much sound quality does a stereo 3.5mm Y splitter take away?

    Just to clarify because I am dumb... If I got an amp like the big joe, would a regular rca switch like one from radio shack have a noticeable impact on audio quality? I need a 2 channel amp / receiver that has a small footprint, but I also have 3 inputs, so I need a way to switch between them...

    ps3 / comp setup - hows this?

    Is that pioneer you linked me to my best bet for a 2.0 system with multiple inputs, that will get me the best sound?? Thanks! *could I just get a regular amp like the big joe, and use an RCA switch like this? Would there be any loss in quality if I used that?

    ps3 / comp setup - hows this?

    I need a new setup for my ps3 and comp. I haven't done much researching, but come to the conclusion that a receiver would make my life easier. How well would the following receiver and speakers work for me? receiver - Onkyo TX-SR505 speakers - M-Audio AV30 For music I listen mostly to...

    LL pc-a06 question.

    I have been looking into the pc-a06 and the back 80mm.. I'm sure this would have been done if was possible, but I havn't found anything on it. Can someone measure from the top of the i/o panel to the edge of the case. I know the a06 isn't as wide as the a05, but it almost looks like dual 120s...

    Best Linux DVR / watcher

    Ok so I am building a new linux only comp. I am gonna get at least 1 tuner, and I am really wondering the best looking, and nicest DVR. I have used mythtv before, on a pretty decent computer, and everything was horribly sluggish, and I didn't necessarily like the gui. Is there any other good...

    gothic iii

    @skirrow.. the music changes to dark and morbid when you come to close to an enemy / wolf / bore. you probably didnt see one cause you were running or something. lol. If they fix the hickup problem, and make the animals not ass rape you, then it will be one of the best rpg's ive played.
