    Sharp Unveils 32-inch IGZO 4K Professional Monitor

    The price really doesn't worry me, at all. Remember when 1080p TVs used to cost just as much? It really wasn't that long ago, like 4-5 years... Now you can buy one for under 500$ and I think the same will happen with 4k monitors - people are tired of 1080p and want 4k, but not at prices like...

    ASUS Introduces the Designo MX279H and MX239H AH-IPS Frameless Displays

    I think they made it very visually appealing, but... If they targeted the 3-monitor crowd, why not give us VESA mount options? Those flimsy stands on some (or honestly most) modern monitors make me a very sad panda.... One would think that something like a VESA mount option would not be so hard...

    Tobacco-Style Warning on Video Games Proposed by US Bill

    Here are my two cents: video games are just that - GAMES. They are not real. They may represent a version of reality, or, a world/idea that has nothing in common with reality. People who's thought process is changed in a dangerous way by video games is someone who CANNOT make the difference...

    ASUS Maximus IV Extreme

    I've tried with an optical cable, but the issue still persists... I'm thinking that buying a sound card might be the only option and I don't like that because I don't have the money... :D I really need help with this, so any input is appreciated - does your onboard sound do what I'm describing...

    ASUS Maximus IV Extreme

    OK, the rig is done, just the D14 left to buy, but there is a problem with the onboard audio. When I play compressed audio, like MP3s, the sound level of different instruments fluctuates. This does not happen with uncompressed audio. I'll try to describe it more accurately: for example, when a...

    ASUS Maximus IV Extreme

    I'm building a rig with this board (already have it) and I'm also curious about the x8/x8... :confused: It does have a NF200 chip, but isn't it supposed to work with both AMD/NV card? Not that I'm gonna do Crossfire any time soon, just curious. Also, if anyone is interested I'll post...

    VERY slow boot times & other problems

    I've installed them a long time ago, Win started asking for drivers for this device after I installed the 5970 in the PC. it has never asked for them before. BTW, does anyone know what this SMBus controller is?

    VERY slow boot times & other problems

    I can't run MemTest since I can't burn it to a CD... :laugh: And HDD Regenerator says everything is OK. I quite sure by now that it's the motherboard. Also Windows Driver Utility (or whatever it's called, the one that asks you for drivers when it detects new hardware) keeps aking me for drivers...

    VERY slow boot times & other problems

    So here's the problem, quick version: While I was playing the SCII Beta my PC started freezing for short intervals with the sound repeating, like just before getting a BSOD, but it unfreezes. After I restarted it started loading XP (32 bit) and never got to it. It was sitting in the loading...

    5970 Mouse & Texture Flickering

    It already is at balanced. I have tried running with everything on default, and I mean everything - CPU, RAM, GPU... Nothing helps.

    5970 Mouse & Texture Flickering

    Well, these square backgrounds appear behind grass and flicker constantly with it. It's like the game is trying to display a render of a picture but the background keeps showing. It's really annoying...

    5970 Mouse & Texture Flickering

    I bought a 5970 a couple of days ago and I have noticed the following issue - when I launch a fullscreen program, like a game, the mouse does a high-speed flickering, and in Crysis the bushes and grass do that too, except when I'm close to them. I've read that this is a Crossfire problem, but...

    Samsung 500GB External HDD Available Pre-loaded with ‘Michael Jackson's THIS IS IT'

    I LOL hard @ the Samsung guy... "THE greatest entertainer of all time". The greatest entertainer of my time is Ozzy. MJ has nothing on him - he was pwning bats before MJ was pwning (or pounding?! :nutkick:) little boys. I love Samsung, but their campaign and product should be called "This is the...

    EVGA Dual LGA-1366 Motherboard Pictured

    Yeah, I know 1U=1in=2.54cm, and I looked at 4U cases because I wand to mod it and watercool the whole machine, but that isn't exactly easy or even possible in a 2U case, is it? :laugh: Also, thanks for reminding me of the 747, I completely forgot about this one and it's pretty damn good. At the...

    EVGA Dual LGA-1366 Motherboard Pictured

    So are XL-ATX (like the MM Ascension) cases gonna support this mobo or are we gonna have to buy 3U/4U server cases? I'm concerned, because server cases (rackmount and towers) usually come with high-wattage power supplies and are quite costly... For example: if the board cost $500, a Supermicro...

    "...custom stuff like mouse control, text chat in game, and graphics settings" OMFG teh customz! That has to be one of the most ridiculous statement in the history of gaming. The power of mouse control will crush you! :nutkick: IW has gotten so out of line, and they don't even have the...

    Yep, I'm form Bulgaria, and I know you can't become a Major w/o at least 10y, but lets just say that he has high-ranked "friends", if you know what I mean. His rank may not be very real, but he has experience from Iraq, he was there for 3 years and he does know what he is talking about... But...

    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 discussion thread

    I was talking to a friend who is in the military and when I told him about the game "not being balanced for corner leaning" he just loled hard... I'm gonna quote: "So they say that it's not balanced because noobs who can't shoot won't be able to kill you without effort if you just pop your head...

    WTF happened to the water block?! My money is waiting on this too, but is it REALLY that cool that it doesn't need water when it's highly OC'ed? :confused:

    Logitech Z-5500 problems.

    Well, some audio streams are not 5.1 channels, so you can't hear sound from your speakers when there is no data fed to the center, left/right back. Here is an example: I have an MP3 version and an DVD-audio version of Metallica's Black Album. MP3's are only TWO chanels and the DVD-A is REAL 5.1...

    How do I bridge connections?

    The promised pics are here! :laugh: The fine work of the LAN guys: The fine work of the cable guys: Are they qualified or what?!? :roll: Finally, my PC, but the pic is VERY sh*tty: I'll post some pics on the cables in the trees when I can. Cheers! :toast:
