    Creative SB Z/HD558

    Hello, I've been doing some "research" on upping my sound game on my PC. I currently have a set of HD558s using onboard sound. From what I've read, something like the Creative SB Z sounds like it would be good for someone who is not an audio junkie, but still wants decent quality sound. A few...

    5820K showing 4 cores

    Hello, I bought a 5820K a few months ago. I'm not a huge hardware guy, so I just throw things in and if it works I'm happy. But looking at it more closely now, it's only reporting it has 4 cores instead of 6 in Windows as well as CPU-Z. Did I get a "bad" CPU or something? It's reporting...

    G1 Questions

    PS3 Co-op games

    So the GF and I like playing PS3 games together, and we're looking for something to play. I'm wondering if there are any decent non-fps games out right now that are fun co-op. We really liked Champions for PS2, so something similar to that would be great. Thanks :D EDIT: It could be a PS2...

    AT&T Plans

    What plans does everyone have for AT&T, and how much are they? I'm looking to switch, because I want a BB Bold, but the cheapest plan itself is $90 a month(before taxes) with unlimited messaging and data. EDIT: More looking at BB users here, as the BB plans are more expensive.

    Alright, I just built a new PC(specs in sig), and everything has been ok, with one small problem.

    Podcast Catching Program

    Does anyone use a podcast catching program? I tried one once(don't remember the name), but it was just awful. It ran like shit and was barely usable. What I'm basically looking for is a program that will automatically download the latest mp3s from the podcasts I choose. I don't mind running...

    Silly ATI Control Panel Question

    Hi, I searched a little online and around the forums and I couldn't seem to find an answer to my question. I am planning on building a new PC in the next few days, including a 19" widescreen monitor. I play a lot of CS 1.6, and playing in wide screen mode sounds awful. Now, I was told Nvidia...

    New to building SFFs

    Hey guys, I'm trying to put together a "cheap" Shuttle for temporary use, until I get some more funds to put something nicer together. I'm moving into a medium-large sized studio apartment, so saving space is important. I'm concerned that this system isn't going to be able to be put...

    Cost of Server

    This may not be the right place for this, but my business has a server sitting in our server room that isn't being used for anything right now, and we're going to try to sell it. If anyone could even give me a close ballpark to what it's worth, I'd really appreciate it. I've never sold or bought...

    GPS Questions

    Hey everyone. I'm going on a road trip in the beginning of July. I don't know much about GPS systems, but I figured it would be a good thing to have just to be safe. Anyways, one of the main reasons I wanted to get a GPS was to keep track of weather. Do any of the GPS systems have real...

    dSLR book?

    My girlfriend is going to be buying an entry level dSLR camera soon(still doing research on which one), and she doesn't really know how to use them. I was wondering if anyone could recommend any books they've used, explaining the features and doo-dads on dSLR cameras. She doesn't really need...

This seems like a better solution to something like a car charger with all sorts of adapters at the...

    Enabling MySQLi

    Alright, I'm probably missing something pretty obvious, but I'm teaching myself PHP and MySQL, and the book I am using uses MySQLi. I was using my hosting to do my PHP testing, but it seems they don't allow MySQLi, and I don't have access to the php.ini file, so I can't enable it. So I installed...
