    MSI Readies G-Series Notebooks Based on the latest NVIDIA GPUs

    Its a shame most gaming laptops look ugly, aren't very durable and have poor battery life. I wouldn't mind getting one of these in a Thinkpad though.

    Samsung Announces High-performance 512GB SSDs with Ultra-fast SATA 6 Gb/s Interface

    Yea the first gen of any new technology has issues. I bought SSDs with sandforce 1200 -1222 controllers. No issues at all, and the problems with the sandforce 2000 + controllers can be fixed with a firmware update. Just because "some" users are having problems with their ssds doesnt mean all...

    Samsung Announces High-performance 512GB SSDs with Ultra-fast SATA 6 Gb/s Interface

    I am not sure what your talking about. Are you referring to SSD's with 6 Gbps interfaces with the controller issues? because I own 3 SSDs and I am yet to experience any reliability issues.

    Sapphire Announces Pure Platinum A75 Motherboard for AMD A-Series APUs

    I have no need for PCI myself, I have would liked everything using the x16/x8 PCI-e slots. PCI should go the way of AGP dead and as for legacy cards I dont bother with them.

    Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium vs Titanium Pro

    I was really considering getting the Xonar STX but for the same price I got a decent sound system and decent card. Its not the greatest of quality but it definately beats what I had before from a long shot.

    Horizontal yellowish line LCD TV

    Alright so I obtained a free LCD TV from work, 37" Sharp Aquos 37D44U. The reason it was given to me is because it was a customers TV and it had a horizontal line running through the screen. Yes I know it might be cheaper buying a new TV then repairing it but do you think its the LCD panel that...

    Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium vs Titanium Pro

    Then I might as well think of dropping 10k in high end audio equipment as well. This can become an endless loop. I managed to get the X-fi titanium Pro for $99 CAD. I don't think you can beat the price to quality ratio at this range. As for the 64MB X-RAM it will be probably be completely...

    Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium vs Titanium Pro

    Makes wonder why Asus doesnt include Xonar cards in the higher end Motherboards. ahem.. Crosshair and Rampage Extreme... I managed to track down the Titanium Pro for $99 CAD so I am happy with it. TBH I would rather own a Xonar Essence STX but I cant afford $200 for a sound card at the moment.

    Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium vs Titanium Pro

    The card doesnt look like it has an optical out on it. http://techreport.com/articles.x/9219/3 The titanium and titanium pro are basically the same card except one has a shroud. I am guessing there is no real difference in quality.

    Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium vs Titanium Pro

    Alright so I just purchased a pretty basic home theatre system for my gaming rig (Samsung HTC550) and I am not impressed with my onboard sound. My motherboard uses a VIA chip but "emulates" X-Fi. :laugh: I am needing a PCI-E sound card for my system with SPDIF out. I have narrowed it down to...
