    Seems like my SSD is bad, need a new IDE 50 pin drive

    Well i bought it used on ebay because they were so damned expensive new so I doubt i can get a warranty. Plus i had to take one side of the case off so that it would physically fit in my computer but many have done this without any problems. It worked great for about 11 months. oh and I forgot...

    because its the best designed ultra moble ever. decent speakers, full size laptop HDD, keyboard big enough to use and even on old technology could get up to 15 hours on the quad capacity battery. Sony really needs to come out with another. i have an x505 but its just not the same. it doesnt...

    build list. Feedback wanted

    well i was going to buy the cpu in like a couple weeks after the price drop. this card seems like a good deal http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150240 also i like sagetv because it can control a directv receiver. Nothing else that i know of can, unless vista can?

    need better 60mm and 80mm fan

    build list. Feedback wanted

    I dont think im going to get media center since i use sagetv. As far as gtx`s go the overclocked MSI seems like a good bang for the buck at 480, though i cant get over how much that is. Is it worth it? Does overclocking shorten the life of the card? my total not including cpu seems to be...
