    Curious why do people need a laptop?

    I use my laptop when my friend visits me to set up a network for gaming. My friend will sit on the laptop and play on there, while I sit at my main machine.

    Voltage you run, all the time?

    I run at 1.4 volts. You do NOT need to put a lot of voltage on an AMD processor to overclock it. The nice thing about AMD is it overclocks well at low heat output.

    Logitech MX610 Cordless Laser Mouse

    Thing is that with cordless mice you often get some mouse lag when playing games. Better off getting a wired laser mouse for playing games.

    If Microsoft was Open Source, would it have LESS bugs?

    I disagree with the last two posters. Open Source would result in hundreds of thousands of people who could check the code. Therefore it would be definitely more secure. In your own words, you say that "no one person can ever read or check" all the source code. Open source would be more...

    Anybody else use only the onboard audio?

    I use a sound card here and games run smoothly with it. No delays or lag when using a sound card.

    Still have Pc-3200?

    Who manufacturers your PC-3200. If its generic brand memory, then getting 250 mhz out of it would be killer. But top of the line memory can overclock even higher.

    Anybody else try to get 3 years out of their computer?

    Hmmms, never thought about this. I guess I get around 2 years out of my rig before needing to upgrade. Like I said, I never really thought about how long, and didn't time it. Pretty sure though that it is 2 years. Does that answer your question?

    Monster Rig.

    Are you able to overclock the memory higher with the fan on it? I never thought a fan made much difference in memory overclocking, and am curious.

    How can you say that there is nothing wrong with his card sensor without testing the card first?

    Damn, the 6800GT OC is hawt!

    If a video card explodes, they should do a *lot* more then just give him a full refund. They should pay for any damage to his rig too.

    Thermaltake Releases SLI GPU Only PSU

    I like the idea of a power supply in a 5 1/4 inch bay. Thermaltake has really been coming out with some cool power supply designs. I used their powersupplies before and they were very quiet, could barely hear them over the sound of my computer fans.

    Never buy an Acer. EVER.

    Its best to judge a company when stuff goes wrong instead of only judging a company when stuff goes right. Its how a company behaves when something goes wrong that seperates the good companies from the bad ones.

    Stopping Pirated software - a new approach

    I wonder why companies that small even bother to try to stop pirates. In a way, pirates are "promoting" the company. People get the software, try it out, use it and if they like it, they may even tell their boss at a big company to buy it. Small companies can sometimes get MORE SALES thru...
