    Thinking about switching back to an iPhone, am I the only one?

    No I haven't been drinking :D I've had a Galaxy S for the past year and a half and I like it, and before that I had an iPhone 3G; however I'm seriously thinking about switching to an iPhone 4S. All I seem to see around here are people falling over themselves to get a Galaxy S2 or Nexus, so...

    Unable to Boot after enabling Intel RST - Help?

    OK I'm sure there is an easy fix for this, but I'm a little foggy on tweaking the MBR. So here's what happened: - I have a new Z68 mobo, 1.5GB HDD and an 80GB Intel SSD, SATA mode set to RAID - I installed Win7 on the HDD, installed drivers and the latest Intel RST software - I setup the...

    Lucid Virtu GPU Switching + Eyefinity = ?

    So, I have a Z68 board and a 2600K sitting on my desk waiting to be installed... My question is, can I take advantage of the Virtu GPU switching feature (for power saving) while having 3 monitors? My board has VGA, DVI, DP, and HDMI connectors, but I can't find anything that says I can use...

    Maybe I'm a sucker, but...

    I just ordered an 8120; I'm tired of my unlocked PII 555 bottlenecking me. I had it all planned out to buy an i5 2500k and a Z68 mobo, I even had it in my cart at newegg. Then I got to thinking: 1. An 8120 is half the price of an Intel combo (mostly because I already have a 990FX mobo)...

    Attention Sabertooth 990FX Owners!

    First off I'm putting this in the AMD CPU section because it relates to unlocking cores. Back in July I started a thread about how I was unable to unlock my previously unlockable PII 555 since getting a new Asus Sabertooth 990FX. In post #18 an Asus rep mentions that there should be a BIOS...

    How can I fold on my PS3?

    Maybe this is a silly question, but I just can't seem to find a way to do it. My system is up to date, but there is nothing mentioning Folding@Home under Life with PlayStation. I'm sure I did it before, a year or more ago, but it seemed to disappear with one of the system updates. All the...

    For the past year I've been running a Phenom II 555 with all cores unlocked (at stock vcore) with a cheap Asus 785td-v EVO motherboard. I recently picked up an Asus Sabertooth 990FX, and while it's a very nice board my system locks hard after about 2mins if I unlock the 2 extra cores...

    Trouble Getting Client Bridge Working With WRT

    I'm trying to setup a client bridge with a second router to extend my WiFi coverage. I've followed these instructions. Everything seemed to setup properly, but I can't get a connection of any kind on the second router. I am using a D-Link DIR-628 connected to my cable modem, and I've...

    Just Cause 2 DLC Worth Buying?

    So I just picked up Just Cause 2 on the Steam summer sale and all I can say is...wow! Anyway, I was wondering if it`s worth picking up some or all of the DLCs since they`re still on sale. Are they useful, or just a gimmick? Thanks

    Memtest86+ Errors

    I've been having progressively worsening issues with my PC over the past few weeks. I decided to run a memory test and I get between 60 and 80 errors as soon as the test starts. I'm talking within 1 to 2 sec I have these errors. Then no more. Could this indicate a cpu issue? (hardware in...

    What's my best option for a homebrew WiFi repeater?

    Problem: My D-Link DIR-628 is at the far end of my house (next to my desktop and cable modem) and my PS3 and laptop are at the other end of the house in my living room. I'm not sure what's in my walls but it is NOT WiFi friendly! ** Dlink Router & Cable Modem **...

    Help me choose a graphics tablet

    I'm trying to decide on a tablet and I was hoping someone here might have some advice. I'll be using it to do technical drawings, but nothing really complex. The level of complexity would be roughly about what you could sketch on a medium sized white-board (with a marker) in about 30min...

    Switched from iPhone to Galaxy S: Feeling Lost...

    Well I just switched from a 3G to a Galaxy S Captivate and it's a bit of a culture shock to be honest. Maybe I was just so used to the iOS, but I find Android not as user friendly. I'm going to give it a few more days before I decide whether or not to return it. There are a lot of things I...

    Is Eyefinity Still "Good"?

    Maybe a silly question, but... I've been out of the country for the better part of the last 2 months with very little Internet access. Before that, I was looking at putting together an Eyefinity setup and there was still quite a buzz around here about it. Now since I've been back I haven't...

    AMD Price Drop Coming?

    I was just checking out pricing on some of the hex-core Phenoms this evening at ncix.com (Canada), and I noticed that they're offering "free shipping for your entire order" when you buy many of the AMD cpus they have listed. I don't want to start a rumor of anything, but in my many years...

    Can I Get Around Buying This $100 Eyefinity Adapter?

    OK so I'm seriously thinking about Eyefinity, especially after seeing the Eyefinity Experience Tool that someone posted here several days ago. Based on my current setup, the cheapest route would be to buy two more Acer H233H's ($199CAN from Costco), and a $100 Dell active display port to DVI...

    Can I use VLC to multicast successfully?

    I would like to be able to watch the same stream in two different (maybe more later) rooms in my home. I know that in theory I should be able to use VLC to do this, but I'm not having any luck with it so far. I can stream it from one instance of VLC, and view it from another instance (on the...

    Setting Default Sound Playback Device per Program?

    OK so I have a 32" TV as a second monitor connected via HDMI. I like to watch TV/Movies while I game, but I find having the game sounds and video sounds coming out of the same speakers very distracting. I can set the TV speakers as the default playback device and it works fine over HDMI...

    BOINC / CUDA Issue

    I just upgraded to a 5850 from a 9600gt a few days ago, and tonight I thought to myself... "Hmm maybe I should un-retire my 9600gt for PhysX and DC stuff"....since I have a second 16x slot (4x electrically). Anyway, long story short, BOINC doesn't recognize my nvidia card. Apon further...

    Logitech G13 + Bad Company 2 = ?

    So I picked up a G13 gameboard last night, thinking that it'd work really well in BC2. Honestly it was an impulse buy because I found one 40% off. I'm really impressed with the quality of the unit, and the neat things you can do with the LCD display. I really wish there was a BC2 profile...

    150GB Raptor - how hot is too hot?

    Should it be too hot to pick up with my bare hand while sitting mostly idle? I'm guessing not... It is the boot drive, but it wasn't doing too much before I tried to handle it. It's in a Sonata case without a rear case fan, so I'm going to install one...but it's strictly a web/email machine...

    Ubuntu 9.04 Rant

    Which core on an X2 5000+ ?

    Would an X2 5000+ Black Edition be a Brisbane for sure? Or is there a chance it's a Windsor? The site I'm looking at buying from doesn't specify. I have an X2 3800+ right now, but I noticed the 5000+ is only $89, so I'm tempted. Thanks.

    - 1900XT reset itself (vpu recover) several times within a few mins one night while playing a game. - PC completely locked up a few mins later - I switched the PC off/on, and right from the POST screen I now have bands of green horizontal lines - Everything worked fine before this, no...

    What is equivalent to a 1900XT these days?

    Well it looks like my trusty 1900XT is on it's way out (severe artifacts that start at the POST screen). I've tried cleaning it off and reseating it but it didn't make a difference. I'll give it a more thorough once over on my day off, but baring that I need a replacement. I mostly play WoW...

    Which Recording Software?

    Hi guys. I have a security camera and I want to record the video feed from it 24/7. It has coax and RCA connectors so I plan to hook it to my TV-Tuner. I should also mention that it's an Asus TV-Tuner and is not compatible with MSE; it works just not in the MSE GUI. So my question is...

    How much do you pay for power?

    There is a lot of talk about power bills around here, so I was just curious what everyone pays. If you're not sure check your power bill, it should be in $/KWh. My power is included in my rent, but the rate where I live is $0.105/KWh CDN (or about $0.09/KWh USD). I use enough power that...

    Reasons Why GPU Folding Rules...

    Today I starting thinking about GPU Folding and why it seems like such a good idea. Here's what I came up with: 1. Does a lot more work (for science) than CPU Folding 2. Huge boost in PPD 3. That $400 video card now gets used 24/7 instead of 1 or 2 hours a day 4. Video cards...
