    I guess its time for a new PSU.

    http://www.jonnyguru.com/ is an excellent source for power supply reviews if you still want to do some reading around cant really go wrong with corsair though

    Pirate Party Elected to EU Parliament

    can I just point out that this argument has been going on for the past few years and will go on for as long as we have "protected media." I honestly believe the recording industry is heading the same way the american car industry was (and still is). Sales are dropping on CD's due to digital...

    ASUS Preparing Atom-Based AT3GC-I Mini-ITX Motherboard

    i'd wager that anything more than a 9600gt would start to be very cpu limited, the 9400 is a good fit for the atom. in zotac's case, someone who was seeking a little more power could move up to the 9300wifi, which uses 775 cpu's and has a full x16 pci-e slot

    ZOTAC Unleashes Blu-ray Ready ION Mini-ITX Platforms

    yeah, I agree it's rather idiotic to use the gaming in the same sentence as 9400m, but hey even an X4500 is super fast gaming these days according to intel.

    Mini IIX all purpose rig (With a proper video card!)

    yeah exactly, I'm a bit of an AMD fanboy and I'd rather have the 9300 as well for that same reason

    Mini IIX all purpose rig (With a proper video card!)

    yeah, but at the price point of that x4 minix and a fairly decent A64 X2, you could pretty much have the 9300 wifi and say and e5300 or smth. even a 4670 would have a bottleneck at 2.0 4x, and with the performance of either the 780g, 8200 or 9300 it isnt worth buying anything lower. (unless the...

    Mini IIX all purpose rig (With a proper video card!)

    oh? when is itx getting the 790x? I'm running the 8200 zotac board in my SG-05 and was planning to move up to the 9300 and a quad and just eliminate my tower alltogether

    The Pirate Bay in Legal Soup, Owners Fined and Jailed

    I'd be more supportive of the proceedings if the money were to go to the people who created the content, not a few rich fatcat's in Publishing/Production HQ. Maybe they're just jealous of everyone else getting government handouts

    New On-Demand Gaming Platform Threatens to Kill Gaming PC Upgrades

    so instead of paying tons of cash for my rig (and making something unique), now you can buy one of these boxes and pay all that cash for a good enough ISP instead :p

    ASC's Mini Phenom x3 Rig

    the vrm's aren't scorching hot on air :p yes yes, it is a prefab, for $60 I'm not complaining though, cash i saved is going into a better ITX box, maybe that zotac board with the x16-pcie

    EVGA GTX260 Loose 6-Pin Socket?

    Title says it all... just built a new rig and decided to go back to the green camp, I was originally having boot problems due to the stupid way the pci-e slots work on my dfi 790gx, but after making sure it was seated well in the right slot, it still failed to boot or would eventually hard lock...

    ASC's Mini Phenom x3 Rig

    I never had the time to appreciate my x4 watercooled build, mostly due to time/laziness. So naturally I sold it and immediately have another setup lined up :slap: . However I do hope that since I finally have my car running well and pretty much got everything done that was preventing me from...
