    Looking for a gaming chair.

    Actually, I'm looking for a chair recommendation of any kind really. I am interested in gaming chairs as I've sat in a few that were fairly comfortable. I would prefer to keep the price to around $600 max, but I can flex that if need be. I've had the Herman Miller Aeron and the Ergo Human...

    After the positive responses I received for The Top 5 Worst Motherboards of All Time article and by popular demand, I decided to create a list for the the best motherboards.

    The Top 5 Worst Motherboards of All Time

I've decided to count them down in order of best to worst, and tell you why they suck. #5 DFI LanParty nForce 4 SLI DR Expert -2005 I expect to catch some shit for this one. This was one of the boards to...

    Dual-Link DVI to Mini-DP Adapters

    I've got two adapters I used with my Eyefinity setup. These are both active dual link DVI to mini-DP adapters. These are necessary for any display with a resolution greater than 1920x1080 which only support DVI connections. These will adapt dual-link DVI to mini-Displayport. These...

    Radeon HD 7970 CrossfrieX Issues

    Recently I upgraded to dual 7970 HD's in CrossfireX. To say that I've been unsatisfied is is an understatement. I've experienced poor performance and instability from day 1 while running in CrossfireX. Searching the forums I found several threads concerning issues with scaling and instability...

    WTB: NVIDIA GeForce 6600GT

    I'm looking for a GeForce 6600GT. I suppose a 6800GT or Ultra would do as well. However I don't need that much power for what I intend to use it for. I need this because it will do S-Video out and DVI at the same time while in BIOS. This enables me to do BIOS captures for reviews. Something the...

    Intel SSD died, received free upgrade!

    Well sort of. I was running dual Intel X25-M 80GB G1 drives in RAID0 and one of them crapped out on me. I called up Intel and got them to send me an overnight replacement. I paid their $25 expedite fee and instead of receiving the same drive, I now have a X25-M G2 drive. :cool: I'm probably not...

    Case Considerations

    I'm in the market for a new case. I've got an EVGA X58 3X SLI Classified and due to the expansion slot configuration, I want to move my third video card down to the last slot (slot #4) and use slot #3 for something else. (Probably another card for PhysX, RAID controller, or a network card which...

    Does RAID 60 support online capacity expansion?

    I'm pretty sure that online capacity expansion is going to be limited by the controller. It has nothing to do with the RAID level itself.

    I admit it, I was wrong.

    All this time I had defended Crysis for being so tough on the systems and being well optimized when many said it wasn't. Granted I still think that many people swearing it was poorly coded aren't well educated on the subject, but that's not the point. I think my conclusion was generally...

    Well it happened again............

    I won't bother re-hashing the complete history I've had with these things and the total sum of my experiences with all the various 680i SLI chipset based motherboards I've used and replaced due to failure but I thought it interesting to note that my last 680i SLI chipset based motherboard, my...

    Need old eVGA 680i SLI BIOS file.

    To make a long story short, I killed another EVGA 680i SLI motherboard and the new one shipped with BIOS P29. BIOS versions P29-P31 can cause difficulty with RAID controllers. That's exactly what happened in my case. I've searched the web and I've been unable to find one of the older versions of...

    Well, I killed another 680i SLI board.

    Well, I just killed yet another EVGA 680i SLI board. I was having increasing stability issues, returned the board to stock, that didn't help, so I flashed it with the latest BIOS and now, it's BSOD hell. Swapped the ram, now the thing won't post anymore. So I'm installing the EVGA Black...

    Logitech G9

    Well I got myself a G9. It's a little too early to be forming any final opinions on it in the 30 minutes or so I've been using it. I will say that it takes alot to get used to considering I've been using the MX series since the original MX500 and the G5/G7 which all had the same basic shape...

    Water Cooling the P182

    I'm looking to water cool my second PC. I've already got the case, and all the water cooling hardware. I've got a Swiftech MCP655-B pump, and the res and all of that stuff. So I guess I need to ask, where the hell would you put the pump? Anywhere seems to be too cramped for it to fit...

    EVGA 122-CK-NF69-A1 The MSRP is retarded on it, but I want one. Hopefully EVGA is binning them instead of just attaching water cooling hardware to standard EVGA 680i SLI boards.

    Farcry 1.4 and HDR

    For some reason I can't get HDR to enable no matter what I do. AA is turned off just in case it still won't let me run AA and HDR at the same time, but for some reason I still can't enable HDR no matter what I do. The game seems to recognize the command, but it isn't actually changing the HDR...

    P5W DH Issues

    Well, the P5W DH is in and working. I do have one issue though. I can't make the EZ Backup ports work at all. The software doesn't detect my drives, and I have tested both drives on other SATA ports and each of them works perfectly. I have two identical Maxtor Diamond Max 10 7200RPM 16MB...

    ATI Drivers are making me miffed.

    I recently setup my Core 2 Duo based system using an X1950XTX. Problem is that once connected to my LCD panel, the card does not output video in DVI mode. It only does so in analog mode. Of course this means my display looks like crap. I've installed the modded Catalyst drivers I found on...
