Re: OCZ 2GB Diesel USB 2.0 Flash Drive Review

Good review and a great USB drive. I just picked one up about a week ago and for $15 bucks after rebate, it really is a steal. I mainly use it to move around small files, but the ability to put full iso's and a ton of other useful tools with 10 gigs of space still left over is nice.

Re: Intel Core 2 Duo E8500 Processor Review - 45nm Wolfdale

what most sites do is just take an E8500 and downclock it to the other speeds... I can do that if you'd like in future articles and that way you can see what an E8200 and E8400 would perform like, but of course time is always a limitation. I'm already working on the next three reviews now ;( Thank ...

Re: ATI Radeon HD 3870 X2 (R680) Pictured in CrossFire

3870 x2 in Crossfire seems like the height of unnecessaryness (a real word?) for computing. Yes, it gets you more fps, but it also can be a replacement for a jet engine :p

But if I got one for free, I wouldn't complain.

Re: Dell 24" Ultrasharp

I have the same monitor. I am so glad I upgraded from my 19 inch CRT. Browsing the internet and multitasking is so much easier on the eyes with all the real estate. Looking at my 5.1Mp photos is great as well. If I had the cash I would go for the 30". You spend 100% of the time looking at the monito...

Re: ATI Radeon HD 3870 X2 Video Card Review

Great review. I enjoyed reading it.

I was hoping the card had more overclocking potential, but I am guessing that it already has enough power.

Now to see nvidia's response.

Re: What's your favorite brand DVD Burner?

I have an old NEC ND3520A BLACK drive. I don't burn much, but when I do I never have a problem.

Re: E8400 OC world record!

That is awesome. I can't wait to buy an E8400 or a Q9450 and OC it hopefully over 4Ghz on air.

It will be quite an upgrade from an AMD XP-M 2500+.

Re: A Look Back At The AMD Athlon Processor Series

I still run on an AMD Athlon XP-M running at 200 x 11.5 . (1.65v) I built the system back in January of 2005, when the processor was only $90. I just recently re-applied some Artic Silver 5 and it has dropped about 10C in temps. I know that it is ungodly slow compared to what is out there now, but I...
