What benefits do you get from a DVI cable over an SGVA? Facts please, not just "it's better" or " you can achieve higher resolutions". I can get 2048x1280 with my SVGA cable which is actually too tight for me. I just don't see a reason for DVI on a PC. From what I understand, the text is a lot clea...

Excellent review!! I am an idiot and I understood the good and bad! I wish they would include the chipset and the video card blocks with these kits...yes I am just cheap I guess.

It is also a LOT brighter than my CRT was..REAL bright. Awesome to watch movies on though...I was watching with the sun b...

New toy - Samsung 930B

Didnt know which section to put this in. I just got the Samsung 930B monitor at Circuit City's website ( store pickup ) for $320+tax after $30 rebate!!! Now for my questions. This is my first LCD for myself. I have noticed that the screen resolution should be what the Manufacturer states!! That is a...

Re: Advise on HDD, new to SATA

PS. I also haven't got the first clue as to RAID or the 0 or 1 setting. Im guessing if I just have 1 sata drive I just set up raid and theres no option for 0 or 1 is that correct? Also is the 128kb setting the best to use, i am planning to use the hdd alot. Umm...if you only have 1 drive you cant u...

water cooling questions

Well here we go....I can show how little I really know :) 1st - am I right in assuming that ANY water cooling kit or product would be good enough for a NON-overclocking situation? 2nd - how quite are they?
