    The Time has come

    Hello tpu forum, its been a while since I've been here, but it also has been a while since I built a new pc. When I bought my Deneb back in January of 09 I also purchased a kick ass Xigmatek S1284 HDT cooler, which at the time was highly recommended by many people here. Unfortunately for me...

    Would it be worth it

    To get a better video card for my measly 1440x900 monitor. The intelligent part of me says hell no, but the philosophical part of says "Get it, you will get a better monitor(s) soon enough.", and then the common sense portion of me says, "how the hell are you gonna fit a bigger monitor(s) on...

    Rebuilding an old gateway

    A buddy of mine recently gave me an old gateway that apparently was broken. Turns out the only things broken in it where the psu and harddrive. Everything else is fine(haven't tested the sound card but i assume that it works, it looks like it was never used). I got a nice 350 watt antec psu...

    Dying monitor?

    TF2 stuttering mouse aim

    When I play Team Fortress 2 online I get stuttering when I look around with the mouse, I would say its microstuttering, by my framerate is fine. In a lan server by myself it doesn't happen, only online. I tried TF2 on xp with the same system config and game settings and its fine, only Windows...

    Dual boot

    Here's the story, I installed Windows 7 a while back, and I love it and all, but just the other day I had the urge to dual boot both 7 and xp. So I made a separate partition on one of my drives and installed it, no problems here. Only problem is that when I restart my computer it doesn't give...

    Windows 98......

    Im about to ditch Windows 98SE, after I tried to reformat, but all it did was remove the ability to use a usb storage device, so screw it. My question is, Should I go to Windows 2000? My Pentium 2 exceeds the requirements, so I personally dont see why not, just want a second opinion.

    Low Profile machine

    A friend of mine asked me to build a pc for him to be used for work. I just have to ask a few questions: 1.) Would micro ATX be sufficient seeing as there will be no gaming being done on the pc? 2.) 32-bit or 64-bit? 3.) Try and use onboard video if available, or get a low profile video...

    Video Editing Software

    Ever since I went to Windows 7 I've had issues with finding good video editing software. Most of the time Windows movie maker is sufficient, but the W7 version exports bad audio quality and crashes all the time. Then theres Vegas, I hate it, don't recommend it to me. Then I saw CyberLink...

    Trying to dual Boot Win & and OS X Leopard

    I recently had the sudden impulse to install Mac OS X on to my system to use mac programs and just to say I can for that matter. I got a perfectly burnt DVD of Mac OS X Leopard 10.5.1 that works with AMD processors. I am able to boot the disc, but when it asks me which harddrive to install on...

    Recommend me a good external harddrive

    I just realized that since I got a larger than average amount of harddrive storage in my pc, I got alot of crap on it, crap that would take weeks to redownload on my crappy(but reliable) DSL, such as steam games, music, videos, pictures, flash content, unnecessarily large game patches and addon...
