Re: XFX 850W Black Edition Power Supply Review

As good as this psu is, I just cant justify paying twice as much as another psu. So I just got a 850w from newegg for 99 bucks with free shipping.

I've found actually that the performance problems with youtubes HD has been more about a steady connection speed rather than computer performance.

Re: Spire TherMax Pro CPU Cooler Review

Those temps seem pretty darn warm to me! I'm not so confident this thing can handle a phenom 2 x4 at 145w ?
So perhaps the statement 'todays hottest 130W quad-core processors' should be adjusted a tad..

Linux Server Management Preference ?

I'm just curious about peoples preference for server management software.
Personally I've used eBox and Webmin recently and like both, although eBox has issues with package compatibility and updates n stuff.
What do you guys think ? prefer something like Amahi or have another alternative you love ?..

Re: Seagate FreeAgent Theater+ HD Media Player Review

For the up sides (the silent operation and wifi) the extra 29 sovs is not a bad increase in price given the benefits. However my big down side (in my opinion) is the dumb proprietary HDD dock which requires you to buy (more cost) their portable drives which are (logical) size limited. Such a shame. ...

Re: laptop internet

If the laptop has wifi you could also get a cheap USB wifi stick and configure connection sharing through it on one of the existing PCs (windows i assume).
Though that doesn't leave room for expansion like the previous poster's switch/router option.
