    New in Computing for 2008 and beyond..

    My last system was built in May of last granted I'm behind a little... So, what can we expect to see in the coming years as far as PC upgrades go? For example, what is PCI E 2.0? I also notice DDR 3 memory is reaching the 1,000 number PC1063 I think was one number I saw.... I...

    Gateway FHD2400

    I just got it. I swear the Blu-Ray picture looks ten times better than it did with the older, non HDMI 24"er.... Things just look a bit sharper, too... The only thing that didn't look good was the FIOS DVR picture hooked up to the HDMI Cable..

    PC Reycling Programs..

    In this case, Northern, near Paramus. I still haven't convinced the Parents that they need a new PC just yet....they claim that this one is good, yet they complain that it's too slow or not working right for them. I may just surprise them and they'll wonder why they didn't get a new one...

    Why would New Egg remove a Camcorder?

    If I'm a Fool for Yo, would 'My Bad' make me a Tool? :D As for callbacks... that a good thing or a bad thing, considering I plan on buying this thing in a few months? :)

    PC Reycling Programs..

    Hmm, OK. Let me rephrase that... How about in store credit? I noticed that Costco has a service like that which just got started.... I wouldn't trust Craig's List as far as I could virtually throw it. I tried too ditch something on there once, and was bombarded by about 20 idiotic morons...

    PC Reycling Programs..

    How much can you normally recycle a PC for, considering no matter the age, they mostly probably get melted down for new parts? Also, does anyone have one company they would recommend in Jersey that pays the highest price and is trust worthy? Thanks

    Why would New Egg remove a Camcorder?

    Yo, wasn't sure where too put this. But I had a Sony SR7 camcorder bookmarked on new egg. Was there for about two weeks as I was checking too see if the price dropped lower than $1039. All of a sudden, it's now gone and they only have the SR1 listed. Why would they post it if only too...

    Gateway FHD2400

    That's one reason why I don't want too go over a 28"...and even that is a tad too big. If Projectors where cheap for good quality images, I might consider that....then I wouldn't have too worry about screen size :).

    Gateway FHD2400

    Well, I'm getting this monitor in the next month too replace my non HDMI 24" Gateway. Switching all those inputs each time I wanted too watch the cablebox in HD was way too annoying. So, for those who have the Verizon FIOS QIP64122, how does an HDMI direct picture look? Or a Tivo HDDVR for...

    I'm looking for solutions to back up more data...and I was wondering what ye thought of the available solutions.. The Western Digital Passport to Go is my first choice. Get 4 160 GB drives, eliminate the need for a power plug, and only need one USB cable to power them on. I just wish they...

    Best motherboards Other than Asus..

    Let me ask you this... There won't be any Core 2 Extreme Written programs for a while, I'm guessing, probably even longer with the Quad Core. But is there much of a different in performance between the Quad Core and the 2 Duo Extreme Core? hopefully in 5 years, if it's demanded, all...

    Best motherboards Other than Asus..

    Nope, I don't intend to use SLI. But aren't all cards going to be moving away from PCI eventually and over to either PCI E X1 or X16? From what I understand, nothing uses X4 slots...

    DVD Burning annoyances..

    Here's something. Why does the DVD Burning software always have to encode Video? Even with Files that where recorded on the same camcorder, it's got to re-encode the video to match the specific settings. Can't it be done so that you drag and drop the files, it burns them to disc, and...

    Sigh, any Hard Disk camcorders with good reviews?

    Quick question. Anyone know how fast the battery drains when recording in SP mode? Does it really last all 2 hours? - edit I just set it running for 2 hours. Unlike my old Samsung camcorder, this one actually lasts as long as advertised. 2 hours in SP mode exactly...well, almost...

    Sigh, any Hard Disk camcorders with good reviews?

    Well, I bit the bullet and got the SR200. So far, I'm loving the touch screen much more than that scrawny little button that always gave me trouble on the Samsung. I have yet to hook it up to a big screen, but the picture quality is looking much better even on the 2.7 " LCD. I love...

    Anyone reccomend a reliable 700GB drive?

    Boomerang just added a few old series I'd lie to record, so I may need to get two 700GB or more HD's to back everything up. How reliable are HD's the higher up storage gets? Is it too early to invest in the terrabyte ones?

    Sigh, any Hard Disk camcorders with good reviews?

    Yep, still looking :). I re-read the canon page and your right, it does take tapes. Reason why I'm looking at a HD cam is no media to carry around, and easy to transfer edit and burn to a real DVD later, not the mini DVD's. Plus hopefully longer battery time. The plan is to get one in...
