    Momentus XT

    Hey guys, I haven't been on TPU in a while for a lot of reasons, but I just got an e-mail from newegg about the Momentus XT. Its $125 with free shipping for the 500gb model. I just did a search for it on here, and didn't find much. So basically, I was thinking about buying it for my Macbook...

    Windows 8 . . . . Next Year

    Windows 7 was in progress before Vista came out. Its not unlike microsoft to start working and naming dates this quickly after an os release. Just look at Windows' upgrade path before XP.

    Windows 7 Beta to 7 Full upgrade path

    Hey all, I am currently running Windows 7 build 7100 (the beta from ~juneish) as my main os. Im buying a copy of Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit to upgrade to the real thing before the time bomb 'splodes. How does the upgrade path go? Do I just put the new key in? Or do I need a full reformat...

    Crashing during memory intensive stuff

    I dont think it would be the PSU, PCPowers are pretty damn stable, although you never know, I'll check it out if the memory is fine. I would think its just running out of memory while rendering as well, but I've rendered much more longer and intensive videos before with 4gbs no problem. And...

    Crashing during memory intensive stuff

    Hey guys, long time no posts. Alright, well I have my aging system (in specs), and despite it being some pretty old hardware, a few generations behind, It runs like an absolute beast, and have no intentions of upgrading, especially since I'm saving to get a MBP for college over the summer...

    how often do you upgrade your gpu?

    :rolleyes: The 7300 came with a Dell i got. I built a socket 478 rig, with an AGP x1650. And then Got a Dell later (bad choice) right as Vista came out (even worse move, although I did get to enjoy it as more and more updates came out). I ditched the dell, went back to my 478 rig, then...

    Asus: Is this 3/8" worth the extra $30?

    I own the 24 inch one. Its a great monitor, but the webcam sucks. Get the smaller one, since the size difference is negligable, its the same res, and refresh rate, and use the 30 bucks towards something else, maybe like a good webcam :P

    how often do you upgrade your gpu?

    Well for me I rarely upgrade that often. My history for my personal computer has been Nvidia mx400 -- Ati Radeon x1650 -- Nvidia geforce 7300 -- Ati Radeon HD3870. I think the shortest amount of time of a video card I owned was x1650 to 7300. I think im either gonna upgrade to a 4890 when...

    T.V. through Computer?

    Yeah I have a converter box at the moment, but it is provided by Verizon, since we got it as a deal they were having in preperation to "the big switch". And thankks for the clarification.

    T.V. through Computer?

    Yeah, its $6 for the converter, and $15 for the HD. Per month that is. I guess I'll just get the box then. We have a DVR in the living room, so recording isnt a huge loss on my computer. And I wouldnt mind some HD football and hockey games in my room :cool:. Hahaha, Thanks for the help guys.

    T.V. through Computer?

    Sorry for the Double post, but the box I'm using is a little black thing. Like 5 inches by 5 inches. I have the DVR box in the living room, and my parents have the digital one (the silver one) in their room. I have a simple black box, that to my knowledge, just converts the signal to analog...

    T.V. through Computer?

    That helped a lot :eek: Ok. I think I may just call Fios up, and upgrade my box to the bigger one that I have in the Living Room. If I remember correctly, the upgrade cost would be about the same as getting a Tuner Card. I'll just use the speakers that are built into the Monitor if I go...

    T.V. through Computer?

    Ok so say i buy this tuner http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16815116024 First off, would that be a decent card? And second, would the sound from the the tv signal play through my computer speakers? And does my remote still control the channels if I still use the converter...

    T.V. through Computer?

    O.K. So I recently bought an Asus Vk246h 24inch monitor. Now since I have a really crappy old Quasar rear projection television in my room, I'd like to chuck that and use my monitor for tv. I already have my Xbox 360 hooked up to the monitor via HDMI. Now, I have Verizon Fios for my...

    Monitor start up

    It might be the CPU. I had a bent pin on a Pentium 4 Northwood CPU once that caused this problem. Maybe take it out and check?

    Monitor time!

    The Asus came today (hooray for living 60 miles from the New Jersey Warehouse! ^_^) i LOVE this thing, beautiful quality, the colors are so much more vibrant, and no more KVM switch to switch between sever and main pc! It supports two inputs, that can switch at the touch of a button! WOOO...

    Monitor time!

    Sorry for the double post, but I'm just letting everyone know I went with the Asus, since I've been reading and getting mixed feelings on the game support of the res that the samsung has.

    Monitor time!

    Any other opinions? Looks like I'm going for the samsung if there isn't any other suggestions.

    Monitor time!

    Well eventually, come september/october, i will be upgrading to an HD5870. So Graphics wont be too much of a problem for long. I was also worried about games not supporting the resolution, like I said its funky, but other people are playing games on the same resolution (link that Hoss...

    Monitor time!

    Ok, I've been saving up out of my paycheck for a bit, and have ~$250(USD) to spare. I was kind of torn between a new video card, or a new monitor. And I figured, it would be better to go with a monitor, and then wait for the hd5870's later, since a 4890 or gtx280 would be over kill for a...
