    Big Monitor or tri?

    I would say it really depends. If you are looking at a big screen (like the 42" you listed below), but it only displays 1920 x 1080 I would say go with eyefinity triple setup since 3 x 23" screens will have much higher resolution. But if you go for a quality 30" monitor, then I would rather...

    No signal from computer to my monitor???

    psycholicon check your connections from your power supply to the motherboard and graphic card. Make sure none of the connections are loose. Also you may want to check to make sure nothing is overheating if you can. I had the same problem last year and the issue with mine was my PSU...

    ASUS Republic of Gamers Sizzles at CeBIT

    Looks good, but I gotta say that there have been a few 27" 120hz monitors announced, but none launched so far. We need them to come out so they can get cheaper quicker for the FPS games. Edit: Forgot to mention that bruins is back :)

    Spending 200 dollars for a Video card

    Did you wind up getting anything yet? Looks like prices are going to continue to go down hopefully esp. once the really high end cards come out. Gotta love competition.

    Spending 200 dollars for a Video card

    That is right I forgot about the scaling. The 6000 series has better scaling for Crossfire than the 5000 series. However, you can easily get a 6870 for $200 or less which will be a nice difference from a 6850.

    Spending 200 dollars for a Video card

    I have been looking for a video card at the same price as well but I have a bit to wait for Sandy Bridge to come back out. Right now you can do much better than a 6850 for $200. At the very least look at newegg or tigerdirect and they have 6870s going for $200 and less. Also, today at newegg...

    Gaming Monitor Suggestions

    Ahh I was unaware of that. Good catch there. For right now I am ok with a 60hz setup. Not a problem there. Just out of curiousity how does it perform in games?

    Gaming Monitor Suggestions

    Thanks but 26" is too big. Looking to get 2 other of the same 24" monitor soon for eyefinity. In technology there is no such thing as future proofing since it changes so often. I am not a fan of 3d at all and not looking to play anything in 3d even if it was available. Just looking for a...

    Gaming Monitor Suggestions

    Hey all, I am looking for a new gaming monitor at 23" or 24". I was looking to spend from 150 - 250 for this new monitor. I am really looking for the best bang for the buck, but a good monitor (no cheapo ones). I have been looking at either Asus or Samsung monitors lately. Thanks guys.

    Case Choice Assistance (Mid Tower)

    Thanks guys for the input. Looks like I am replacing the fans which is what I was kind of expecting. DF 30 it is (hot swap is a pretty cool feature).

    Case Choice Assistance (Mid Tower)

    Hey guys, I was wondering what is the main difference between the 2 Antec Dark Fleet Cases. Looks to me the only difference are the fans in it. Was also wondering which one overall is better between these cases. Antec Dark Fleet DF-10...

    Sandy Bridge Build Options

    I believe it. I have a Biostar on my x2 3600+ and it does OC very nicely. Good to see they have a good board I will need to check that one out. Out of curiosity how is the 2500K running?

    Sandy Bridge Build Options

    Sounds like I should take a look at this case this weekend. Thanks for the help. Going to order to the RAM and PSU today since the egg has them on sale. Any ideas on good Sandy Bridge Motherboards? Looking for other options other than the ASUS Pro board as I prob. am going to OC it. Just...

    Sandy Bridge Build Options

    That is a nice case which I am adding to my list. One thing I dont want is a door on the case anymore such a pain. As I said I am open to all options just thought the HAF had some nice airflow and cable management as well as the NZXT.

    Sandy Bridge choices....

    Currently 8GB of RAM is not really necessary and is already future proofed. I wouldnt waste any money on the RAM. If you do want new RAM I would go to 2 x 8GB sticks but that would be a waste as you wouldnt prob. make use of it. Also take a look at these sticks, people are doing very well...

    Sandy Bridge Build Options

    Ahh thanks for that I def. didnt know that. Looks like either a GTX460 1Gb or a GTX470. I gotta say the 470 is calling my name esp at $200. Now any ideas on the case? Will both of those fit this video card without an issue?

    Sandy Bridge Build Options

    Thanks for the input guys. I didnt realize I chose a 460SE version. How does the 470 compare to the 465 or the 460? Just wondering if it was worth the money. EVGA 465 GTX http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130555 Galaxy 460 GTX...

    The PS3 Clubhouse

    What happened to your first one? Any idea where I can find a guide on how to replace this laser. I must say I am a bit dissapointed in Sony. They are def. charging way to much to have this replaced.

    The PS3 Clubhouse

    I am going to throw this a bit off topic. I did like the PS3 until mine decided to take a crap. Seems like the laser is not reading any discs (bluRay and DVD). So I called up Sony and they wanted $180 to fix it since it just got out of warranty of course. I gotta say that is rediculous and I...

    CPU / Mobo Combo

    Thanks for the help here. That looks like a solid CPU / mobo combo. How does that far against the AMD Athlon II X3 440 as I heard this was a great game performer and from what I heard lately the 4 cores are not really used for gaming. Also, I dont think I need 600W+ as I only have a...
