I'll check out sick beard. Unfortunately, my house is rather ancient and there aren't really enough outlets to go around and they are in awkward postions. powerline networking may not work well for me.
Thanks! I never even thought about wireless keyboards. That's probably what I'll go with.
I have a ninja rev b cooler for the q6600 but it's rather large and won't fit in a HTPC case. It also looks like HTPC cases are also not cheap. I may just go with a standard cheapo ATX Tower.
I'm trying to put together a media centre PC for netflix instead of buying a box. Not sure if this is a good idea. I have no experience at all with home theatre/media PCs
I have some old parts lying around:
some Gigabyte motherboard for the above CPU
4GB DDR2 RAM
I think the trade off is about even if you play enough games to be able to take advantage of all the insane sales that PC games have (steam, etc). You don't often get the chance to buy console games for $2.50 - $5 each so if you play often, you'll probably save in the long run. And that's not...
There appears to be a leaked review out there on the net, backed up by pictures. Not sure if am allowed to post here. GTX 680 looks to have about 10-20% performance increase over the 7970 in general. NDA is rumoured to be lifted next thurs or fri
How much can I get for the system in my signature? Q6600 is G0 stepping. The PCI-E latch pin is broken on the mobo, but doesn't affect performance.
I probably want to sell everything except for case and fans.
I also have:
GeForce 9600GT (back from RMA)
D-Link 4-port wired router
Is this a decent drive? I'm looking for a 180GB or 240GB SSDfor my new build, and this drive is $200 off at ncix right now. I notice HWC doesn't have a review of this series. I wonder if AKG or other local SSD gurus can chime in as to whether this is ok purchase or something to avoid. If not...
I don't plan on doing massive OCing. I'm usually not brave enough to push my $$$ hardware enough for them to fry so I normally just do a mild OC if I bother. However, this board doesn't have eSata that I need. I guess I'll have to find a new board. Any suggestions? I'm looking at this mobo...
I've been out of the hardware scene for a couple of years now and is looking to build a new gaming PC this year. I don't do folding/video editing. Gaming only at 1920x1080.
Memory express has this combo deal right now: Intel Core
and it comes with a 2500k and this Gigabyte GA-Z68A-D3H-B3 mobo...
reactor explosions don't have much concussive power. The overheated nuclear fuel does not explode, but rather melt into the ground. The explosions happen due to steam pressure build up in the turbine systems from the overheated fuel.
The universe is not like air. It's a vacuum. Vacuum...
Not sure if it's possible at this point, but the willow potion protects against stun. You can brew potions even if you don't actually have the formula yet. It'll be unidentified until you drink it. Willow - The Witcher Wiki
Always wondered what the big hype was about this. Then I played the demo, bought it and spent about 20 hrs playing this in the last few days. pretty much the most polished defense game I've ever played. Very charming, and huge variety of towers/enemies/strategies to use
