    27.5" 1080p or 32" 720p?

    From experience, do NOT go 720p...for anything PC related. A GOOD 32" 720P Samsung looks like CRAP compared to it's 1080p counterpart. The resolution on the 720 was just too low, and things were fuzzy (9800GTX+ & 32" Samsung)

    That CBR is a sweet bike. Definitely fast lol. Although at 6'4" u'd out-grow that bike in a year. I'm 160lb soaking wet and it's barely fast enough for me lol. My brother is a senior instructor/board member at a pretty big road racing school. Bastard gets a new bike every year to take home and...

    Paint isn't that bad either. You could probably rent a decent air compressor and buy a good air gun....other than that you just need the right weather What some ppl do around here is insure it under their parents and just add the new license as an 'occassional' driver on that vehicle, not as...

    World of WarCraft updates

    no just put them in the folder. let the updater open them and install them see if you can download some of the larger, newer ones (2.2, 2.4, etc) while the installer gets the other ones. might save a bit of time

    World of WarCraft updates

    a majority of the wow update are in your world of warcraft folder (program files\world of warcraft\WoW-3.0.1-to-3.0.2-Update for example) You'd need to burn to a dvd, some of them are quite large.

    I Need A huge PC Case!Bigger the Better!HELP!

    guys what do you think of this review 9950 against Q6600

    IDK....It's a good read, but I really hate it when they compare a stock CPU (Q6600) to an OC'd one in there conclusions. They make the conclusion 'In most scenarios this processor is definitely faster compared to a Core 2 Quad Q6600' BUT it's based on an OC'd CPU v. one that isn't. And on top...

    Crashed the Lama into the neighbors second story, had enough sense to cut power before stripping out the gears. Blew off the stabilizer bar, landing gear, and training set. Tore it apart, the gears and shafts seem straight and un-damaged, the only apparent damage was three of the four rotor...
