    Titanium HD v. Sound Blaster Z v. Schiit Stack

    Do you do any gaming on this setup? or mainly consume content? I also wonder if I could use my monoprice headphone amp to do this, I think it has similar outputs available since I do use my powered bookshelves from time to time. Looking it up on their site it does have aux in via rca and pre-amp...

    Budget white and black theme with green accents gaming build

    A buddy of mine was looking to have a 1080p gaming, moderate video and photo editing, and general use PC built for himself. With that said, he had 2 requirements in mind, it had to be built in the NZXT H440 White case because he loved it and he wanted to have a nice theme to it. After playing...

    So it's down to a gtx980 then, it's only a matter of waiting for the amd cards to release to check for better prices on the nvidia lineup or wait until the next generation of cards to come out.

    660ti Upgrade help

    Do any games run into the memory limit issue on 1080p or is it mainly at 1440p+? I would like to add gsync to this monitor at some point in time.

    660ti Upgrade help

    I'm trying to figure out if it's worth upgrading now or waiting until the next architecture release. The majority of games that I play are H1Z1, CS:GO, and D3 RoS. I'm torn between the 970 and the 980, I just can't seem to determine if it's worth the upgrade or not. Any thoughts? My Specs...

    Need information regarding a couple of receivers Denon AVR-1082 and Yamaha RX-V861

    Since it may be a smarter idea to get a refurb with a warranty, what about between these 2? YAMAHA HTR-3064 5.1 A/V Digital Receiver Like RX-V371 ($140) Onkyo TX-SR313 5.1-Channel 3-D Ready Home Theater Receiver ($120)

    I am looking to pick up a new am as my dayton audio DTA-120 headphone port intermittently cuts out. Looking on craigslist I found the Denon AVR-1082 for $80, a Pioneer VSX-41 Elite for $100 and a Yamana RX-V861 for $125. I can talk them down even cheaper or even possible a trade but my knowledge...

    need new Amp for speakers/headphones

    I currently have a Dayton Audio DTA-100a T amp but the headphone port is starting to go out, I have to wiggle it around to get both sides of my headset to work. I was thinking about getting a Nuforce uDAC-2 and ditching my sound car altogether (X-Fi Xtreme Gamer) but I am not sure if it will...

    Dell Inspiron M5030 intermittent short

    The laptop is out of warranty and a new board runs around $230 which is more than I'd be willing to put into it. I have a friend with an oscilloscope and is an electrical engineer that I will be bringing it to to see if he can verify my opinion on what the cause is.

    Dell Inspiron M5030 intermittent short

    Would a bad capacity allow the unit to run off of battery power and not switch to the DC when it is plugged in. From what I've kinda gathered at this point is that the inductor didn't seem to be passing current through it until I touched the multimeter to it. Not sure how that makes it work...

    Freezes after upgrading LGA775 Core2Duo to Core2Quad

    I would also upgrade the BIOS to the latest release. They could have an update that fixes some weird bugs with certain chips. Worth a shot at least.

    Freezes after upgrading LGA775 Core2Duo to Core2Quad

    MrsOldMX has the same suggestion as I do. It is on the support list but I would still update to the latest. Also if you have a spare hard drive try doing a test install ie install windows and your games on a separate hard drive and see if it does it there as well to rule out OS issues.

    A very strange OS issue, I'm stumped.

    Sounds like to me that the hard drive is going bad and the partition table got messed up. Download and burn Hirens boot cd. Boot the cd and choose mini xp. You can then run partition find and mount from the HBCD menu to find the partition and mount it as a seperate drive letter. If you can open...

    New Lian Li PC-V354 m.atx case : Specification & Feature

    I want to use this case badly since I go to quite a few LANs and hate carrying my heavy steel mid tower. But I would like to keep all of the hard drive bays. I have a 5850 and was wondering if anyone here has been able to fit a card of this size in the case and keep both cages. Thanks :P

    Audible hiss dta-100a

    The headphones that I have right now are Icemat (Steelseries) Siberias. I may look into getting the nuforce the only problem I kinda had with going that route was losing my X-Fi but I really don't use any of the features except for the xmss 3d surround. Thanks for all the info :P

    Why do you buy Apple products?
