    pci-e or pci sound card?

    I would get PCIE as PCI is really on the way out. If you are going to keep the card for a while it would be a better investment in PCIE. My new MB has only one PCI slot and I have a PCI sound card and a PCI TV tuner so I can only use one or the other. I'm keeping the sound card for now.

    Will they ever get rid of IDE and Floppy controllers?

    The motherboard I have has no IDE, no floppy, and no PS2 ports at all. Who needs them now? If you have something that is still one of the above formats it is dirt cheap to replace.

    Vista SP2 Results in Increased Free Disk Space?

    I gained 2gb of space after running compcln.exe - it did not do this automatically I had to run it myself in command prompt. Great utility, but I have no idea if it runs automatically, it has not on any of the machines I have installed it on. Run it yourself as a test. For those gaining a...

    Hey guys, I was looking for some suggestions on a small case to build myself a WHS box. I have size as a main consideration, but I'm worried about the tiny power supply's in some of the small cases that use non standard cases. Are there some that are solid and reliable? I plan on building...

    He fully deserved the cops called on him I would bet. People think they can cause a scene and get what they want, I see it at stores all the time. Glad the manager stood up to him actually.

    Well, at least they are going to avoid the ATHF stunt, though it sure got publicity! :) This was the first thought I had when I read this anyway, "they should be LED and light up!" Oh yeah, someone tried that already and Boston was, ummm, angry. :D

    MS Releases Vista Performance Patches to Testers

    I'm running Vista Ultimate and have been for many months and am amazingly happy with it. I set up dual boot expecting to have to go back to XP often, but I have only booted into XP three times total since I put Vista on. I play games quite a bit and some (company of heroes comes to mind) have...

    Acer’s CEO Says Industry Disappointed With Vista

    It's not Vista, it's acers hardware that is the problem! Make some stable (or any) drivers for your older stuff and ship actual working PC out of your factory and it would help. I'll take eMachines over an Acer any day from what I have seen.

    Wii Instock - Circuit City

    I see them on the shelf in walmart all the time around here, but only in the smaller towns. I have seen them there at least 15 times in small town stores. The stores around me are sold out, but if you drive 30 minutes you can find one easy enough. In town here all stores sell out right away...

    For those looking for the ULTRA boards there is one showing up at ZipZoom, but it's only $20 less than the SLI board. For that little differance I'll get the SLI just because.

    Aside from SLI, whats makes nForce4 better then nForce3 and K8T800 Pro?

    The soon to be available Seagate 7200.8 SATA drives will also support NCQ. I was going to get a Intel MB/Proc but I'm now going to get a 939 system and I'm waiting on the Nforce4 boards to be available. I agree with some of the others, I do not upgrade that often so I want to get all the...

    Nforce3 Neo2

    I believe that these boards perfer only 2 sticks of ram. I have read that if you use all four memory slots they will not work correctly and end up slower than two sticks. 2x1Gb should be better for you in dual channel mode. If you are not getting these right now the Nforce4 boards should be...
