  • Beneath the fragile aluminum exterior of a Mac beats the heart of a PC. They are even assembled in the same factories.
  • I'm surprised the junk on the backside of the card didn't drop off. Kudos! btw, this method of reflowing works on laptop motherboards too
  • Are you looking forward to any future PS3 games in particular?
  • See the reason kittens are what the cool guys use is the psychology involved. As per my example, the sight of a kitten preyed upon her natural maternal instinct. Sure I suppose this is a bit underhanded but remember hate the game not the player.
  • Kittens are what all the cool people are using for avatars. Also, they are great for other things! For example I was like talking to this girl and she was like totally hot and our conversation was approaching a dead end so I pulled the kitten card …

  • Yes! These things would be PERFECT if they had better 3D accelleration. Something like a mobile 9700 or better. But noooo.... if you want better GPU you are pretty much forced into buying a crappy P4 laptop.

  • Logitech better whip up a "DUO" keyboard + this mouse combo...

  • Yeah true, not worth $600 definately but I think Vers got a good deal here... I played the part of dumb and impressionable at the local sony store and tried them on a super cd player... The verdict? ORGASMIC I am used to listening to sound thru …
  • Thanks guys, I feel the love

  • This router supports MAC address filtering right? Would it be ok to use that instead of encryption altogether?
  • Well thats interesting. Whatever you do, do not format/erase your data from the drive. Get a program like GHOST or Driveimage and make a backup of the entire HDD if you can. There has got to be something we can do as the data is not gone, just some …
  • I have the same heatercore. Mine is from a scrapyard BMW 310i... its AMAZING. you won't regret it. About getting it into your case... consider getting a side panel modded so that you can bolt that rad down to it. Either that, or bolt the rad to t…
  • A pair of B&O computer desktop speakers go for $2500 easy... I'm talking two channel cheapass speakers. I don't know what B&O does to their stuff but WOW does it make a difference :o
  • I'm pretty sure that is a utility specific to Dell computers, written by Dell. As far as I know there is no equivalent to system restore in win98. Only ME and XP have that stuff :/
  • I'll test it out with the latest build of firefox from mozilla.org and post back... A suggestion: use the logout button on the forums and then clear your cookie cache
  • Wow... was that PSU modded? Looking at your sig, I think that the PSU should have been more than able to stay alive. Perhaps one of the fans died in your PSU and the sucker overheated. :o
  • It would be great if you could send in an example of your work. A review of a motherboard maybe? Would you be able to write articles? Thx
  • Tough game... I'm bored with it, as I can't seem to get past Murai the first boss. Fellow with the nunchaku. For some reason I keep forgetting to use elixirs Anyone here a fan of Devil May Cry on PS2?
  • The PCI card will be flashed if you use the utilities that highpoint provides. You won't accidentally flash your motherboard BIOS. Unless you try that is
  • Definately run it in pure DOS. A Windows98 SE Startup floppy will do the trick... you'll need a second floppy for the HPT stuff. www.bootdisk.com should have a program that you can use to make the win98 disk. flashing in DOS should be straighf…
  • That memory cannot be used with Opterons. Consider getting a MSI K8D Master instead, or a Tyan K8W. You will need registered memory, and a SCSI controller too. You and your buddies know much about unix? I'm not sure if there are drivers out fo…
  • The NF7 is a great motherboard for overclocking. What you need to do is leave the CPU:FSB ratio to AUTO and enable CPU Interface. Your memory settings should be set to SPD or AUTO where possible as the memory you are using applies very tight timings…
