    " Open With " troubles.

    I'm having a really odd issue - when you right click on a file, go to the open with box, and if the program name isn't present, you can go to " choose program " and pick whatever you want to open the file with. Then usually the program is added to the " open with " box. I upgraded photoshop...

    6800/6800GT? Please advise.

    this ( MSI NX 6800 ) or this ( Asus 6800GT ) Money is somewhat of an issue - my current Geforce Ti4600 isn't pulling some games as well as I'd like for it to, so I figured I'd go for an upgrade. :) Is there a noticable difference between the two cards? Quality or performance wise...

    Printer Drips Ink :-(

    HP Deskjet 960c. Recently started to drip ink while printing. ( little coloured dots, red, blue, whatever, on paper ) This happens while printing black and white/colour. Dissapointing, since I want to print photographs and photopaper is expensive, it messes it up. Any way to remedy this?
