    STEAM level and trading card guide (wip)

    To get your free card you dont even have to play - just run the game and a card will drop approx every 20 mins until you have all your free cards. The cards you dont get will have to be added via boosters packs (still trying to work out how these drop).

    STEAM level and trading card guide (wip)

    I can only assume this is part of some grander scheme - at present it appears you can lvl very quickly - you should be able to get to lvl10 by completing the community badge and playing a few games for a couple hrs. It also seems the market is saturated with cards (summer sale + all the initial...

    STEAM level and trading card guide (wip)

    Well what I have worked out for 'game' drops: To get your 'free' drops just play for 1-2hrs To get your booster packs of 3 cards each you just need to have got all your free drops and remain active in Steam (the Steam wiki suggests being logged in once a week!? - I've always found drops are...

    First Gaming Rig Around 4k budget

    OK - $4k to spend, here would be my approach. 1. Pick a case: this will be with you by far the longest and should last many many years.. How i would choose: Must have easily removeable/accesible filters for all intakes. Must have room for growth/upgrades. Must not be noisey. (Antec p280, Raven...

    12 months, 4 mice dead. Need new mouse suggestions.

    Here are three mice I use atm.... Usage is 2-4hrs every day - mix of precision work (low dpi) and twitch (High dpi) Logitech G9 - great mouse - software not the best - ergonomics not 100% to my liking - more suited to precision for me - 7/10 Razer DeathAdder - imho better ergonomics than...

    Setting up a file server

    A couple of things to be mindful of: If you use motherboard raid it will be almost impossible to move your hard drives with data intact to a new platform. If will also be highly unliky that you will be able to easily migrate/expand your raid in the future. I would therefore recommend a low cost...

    Losing network connection

    As has been suggested..make sure your chipset/NIC drivers are up-to-date. In addition, make sure any and all power saving features are disabled for the NIC - I've seen very similar problems caused by Windows suspending the NIC when idle and when it resumes - no connectivity.

    advice best flight joystick needed

    My experience with Saitek has not been so good to be honest. I have no problem with their hardware - very well built and some very nice features - however the support and drivers are terrible imho. I have had to throw away a R440 wheel and a cyborg stick (in perfect working order) because...

    With regard to Win 7 - Pro was my choice (purely for Active directory support). One thing to have a look for - educational copies (Software4student in the UK for example) If you have any family in full or part time education (this can even be a professional training course) you can pay as...

    networking two home servers to show as one drive

    Its actually very straight forward to bundle multiple 1Gb connections into a fatter pipe. The general term is link aggregation and there are many versions (dot1q, lacp, alb etc). You will still need a multiport 1Gb NIC or multiple 1Gb NICs of the same type (which support 1 or many of the...

    networking two home servers to show as one drive

    Hey Duekay, Have a look at DFS (Distributed file system) for a way to spread data over multiple servers. I'm sure it's been available in Windows servers OSs since Win 2003. I've also seen a few open source variants that run under various other OS. With regard to 10Gb networking - just a few...

    Motherboard BIOS and CPU support - Store responsibilities?

    I've always purchased from Overclockers or Scan in the UK and always found them to be very reasonable and understanding when it comes to issues like this. I guess Ebuyer is cheap for a reason - lesson learned I guess :toast:
