    Is the Plextor M5pro a good choice?

    Really thinking about purchasing a SSD. Running Lightroom 5 can bog down my Velociraptor quite a bit especially with a huge catalog. My research is pointing me to the Plextor M5pro Extreme. Decent performance combined with a 5 year warranty sounds pretty good to me. Anyone can share...

    Logitech Announces the Wireless All-in-One Keyboard TK820

    Looks decent. Cheaper than using a keyboard + Wacom tablet combo. Do they have a left handed model?

    removing corrupted or non valid program

    I would install Ccleaner and run it. It may not fix everything but I'm sure you can regain a LOT of space on the hard drive.

    Running out of ideas to fix this problem

    I remember having a similar random crashing issue when I first built my current system. After checking and rechecking everything, in the end, the culprit was the "CPU phase control" set to auto under the green power sub menu. Unfortunately, you have a different system. good luck.

    Trackmania 2 Canyon

    Any one else playing this? It's been out for a while now. Just as good as the old one. It's still addictive. Controls are the same but handling is very different. It's all in the drift! :rockout: http://www.trackmania.com/?lang=nl It's a download only game.

    Review Consensus: AMD FX Processor 8150 Underwhelming

    My biggest gripe apart of the sub performance and slightly higher load power draw is the disable core sheme. Basically, the "fab" produces (or tries to produce) all the same chip. Like an army of star wars clone, all identical! But this is impossible... Some yields are not perfect. The...
