    Re: Non-phone wifi only android device?

    I have a Galaxy S phone and I love it. Most of the stuff I do doesn't even require 3G. I have never heard of the wifi-only version but if it is the same thing as the phone minus the cell phone...

    [SOLVED] Re: Processor Hell

    You can fix a processor even if the pin breaks off by placing it into the socket and then putting the CPU on top. Here is a video of this in action. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EdDccsbv5hA

    It looks good as a tablet (or another touch device) OS but for desktops, the standard interface looks MUCH more intuitive. I think it's very pretty though. :)

    How do you get the panel to look like that? It's much better than the original. :)

    Re: natural gas monthly bill in winter

    Gas is not a problem price-wise for me. Water prices are extremely high in my area. I expect my bill to surpass $200 a month in a year or two.

    Sorry to hear about the problems with SLI. It could be that one of the cards was bad.
    If you are not worried about drivers in Linux, I would even consider the 6950. It has a lower price and every...

    I know what you mean. Many online tutorials are very lengthy and confusing and don't properly teach you. They tell you how to do it instead of telling you what you are doing.

    I tried it with his proposed system and it was 500 watts minimum. With power supplies, you should get at least 200 watts extra for future upgrades. I would still go for the 850 watt.

    That's true. Also, SSD is still a new technology and will definitely get cheaper and mature a little.

    The memory should be fine. The speed differences with lower latencies are negligible. But if...

    Re: Building first computer, would like advice

    You're almost done with the list. Some things to consider:

    1.) Buy an SLI bridge as those cards do not come with one
    2.) Maybe consider an SSD for Windows 7. You won't regret it.
    3.) Buy...

    Yeah the Corsair cases are very expensive but you get what you pay for. IMO, that case lacks the "class" of a Corsair case. It's too flashy. :p

    Re: Building first computer, would like advice

    I agree with everything except this. Two GTX460's in SLI is better than a single GTX480 in most cases. I would consider buying the 1GB versions though.
