    OCZ Apex or Intel X25-M

    Go with the OCZ. I have an older version that is half the speed and it rocks!! The Apex series is rated faster than the Vertex series.

    The most puzzling computer problem ever

    I had a similar problem with two Gigabyte MBs like yours. Ended up having to RMA both of them for Gigabyte to replace the BIOS chip. Those boards are very flaky. Google the net for horror stories.

    pureSilicon Debuts World's First 1TB 2.5-Inch SSD

    I have bought 3 SSDs (2x 32GB and 1x 64GB) in the last few months. The speed increase for gaming is incredible and since I am almost 100% only reading data when playing my games the failures due to too much writing to the SSD should not be a problem. I've had more HDDs fail than you can count...

    Gigabyte P45 Motherboards

    After having TWO Gigabyte P35 mobos go out on me within a day of each other there is NO WAY I will ever buy another Gigabyte product. Their boards have a huge issue with the BIOS and they havent fixed the problems in over a year of selling the newer ones. Newegg has even discontinued selling...

    Should I upgrade my 780i to a 790i?

    I just bought an EVGA 780i SLI mobo, but now I read all kinds of horror stories about it and memory problems. Should I pay the $105 to upgrade it to a 790i SLI board or does that one have the same issues? Feedback needed.

    Well I got hers up and running with my mobo. However, as soon as I tried to put my Crucial Ballistix DIMMs in it died again. Tried removing the battery and resetting the CMOS overnight, but still no love. The only thing that seemed to work so far was completely disassembling the computer and...

    Help needed troubleshooting
