    Alternatives to landline broadband?

    Well, I am in the US and I did have Satellite before they ran fiber optics thru and it was very expensive at the time, and it stunk. Even though Europe gets technology before the States; I am sure they havent done much with satellite broadband considering it isnt a large enough market (at least...

    6800 GT or 6800

    Well I am just reiterarting what has already been said. I always buy the best or top model, however this time I opted for the GT, its specs are so close to the Ultra its a no-brainer. The GT actually performs closer to the Ultra than the supposed comparable card from ATI (x800 Pro). Now my...

    6800 Gt

    One thing to consider is if you have a watercooled computer BFG has some cards with the watercooling already built in. Personally, I skipped on that and just bought a normal PNY 6800GT, once someone (Koolance) builds a watercooling block then I will just install it myself. I have a Koolance...

    Brain... swelling... WHICH VIDEO CARD?!?!?!

    I am wondering if Im the only person old enough in here to have a job. I see people constantly contemplating a purchase and saying well, I only have $100 for a vid card, or what speakers can I get for $75.00, what case is good around $45.00 .... Personally, if the budgets are that tight...

    Well , I think ON for gaming if you have the refresh rate of your monitor set pretty high. I have the refresh rate on my CRT to 85, when benchmarking I sure like to see those 300 fps , when gaming Id like to have those fps as far as possible from 60 fps. Anything lower and your eyes notice it...

    5900 --> 5950 BIOS Conversion Hack

    I used the Leadtek BIOS for my PNY Verto 5900 Ultra 256. All went well for a few days, then like a dumb ass, when OCing with Powerstrip, I pushed it way to hard a fried it. So I went out and bought an actual 5950 Ultra 256 (PNY Verto again), and it may just be psychological but I think its...
