    Homemade Cintiq Tablet [Dubbed Wolftiq (Intuos3 9x12 build)]

    This is something I've been researching over on bongofish, but you guys are techy as well so I figured you might find this intriguing. You might actually want a cintiq already and didn't know you could build one. To make things simple I'm turning this: Into this beauty : DIY cintiq: k-jintiq...

    Acer Laptop RMA

    My brother's laptop hard drive just died. This is now the second one to die in it within the last year. I'm thinking now that it has a faulty board that's killing drives and want to RMA it. Only issue is I don't know where the original drive is. Would they want the original for an RMA?

    Getting a copy of windows.

    I've recently had two computers have corrupt windows installs. Is there any way to download or buy a disc to install the OS? They're both OEM. One of them I switched the motherboard with so I can't use that disc. I intend to replace the hard drive in one of them. I want to copy his current...

    Vista Business DSP?

    I want to upgrade my OS and would be happy with vista. I found this http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/searchtools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=2864280&SRCCODE=GOOGLEBASE&cm_mmc_o=VRqCjC7BBTkwCjCECjCE which has a very attractive price but I see the letters "DSP" up there. What does that mean?

    Choosing a budget minded water pump.

    I have an almost full loop sitting around and just need a pump/res. I can just buy extra line in replacement for a res. My problem is that I'm trying to find a good pump for a loop using one CPU block (and maybe a bridge block) and a dual 120 rad. It's all 1/4". Are there any good pumps in the...

    4870 Bandwidth?

    I've overclocked my 4870 to the limits that catalyst set. All seems well and good until I look at my bandwidth. Is 140.8GB/s a little high for my clocks? TPU's own review of the card is what is making this odd to me. W1zzard's OC resulted in a bandwidth of 115.2 GB/s on a...

    http://www.pc-wholesale.com/x5722a.html In my search to find a cheap kit of ddr2, I've run across this website. Has anyone dealt with them before? They seem kinda... too good to be true. Edit : Well in that case they did. Anyways, question still stands.

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817812001&Tpk=mushkin I'd say it's a good deal. Got 4 rails, but should be able to handle something like a 4850/5770 crossfire system at least. Probably underestimating it a bit.

    Mouse left click problem

    When I hold down left click, sometimes the hold will end prematurely. In games, it'll stop holding a grenade and just drop it in front of me, for example. I have a Razer Deathadder. Is there some sort of fix? This only just started the other day. Edit: I bought this used. I don't know if the...
