Re: Seagate Offers FreeAgent Go Hard Drives w/ Paramount Films

That's a pretty cool idea but I wonder what format the movies are in.
I'm guessing it's not uncompressed DVD versions. It's probably some heavily compressed, heavily DRM'd mess.

Re: Good computer for home??

That should be more than enough PC for what you want to do with it. I would definitely consider upgrading the router but if your current one suits your needs than don't worry about it. Going from XP to Windows 7 shouldn't be too much of a shock but it may take a little while to find some things. It'...

Re: does it matter?

If your video and photo apps can benefit from lots of memory then I would say go with 6GB-8GB. 16GB is probably way, way more than you need.

Re: Streaming Netflix onto your iPad

I imagine that's going to use a lot of data minutes and drain the battery very quickly. I'll keep using my PC or XBOX.

Re: The smallest Blu-ray Home Theater: Intel core i3-540 HTPC

Pretty sweet setup. I would agree about the case thought. Seems like an odd choice for an HTPC. Still, very cool setup.

Re: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 480 GF100 DX11 Video Card Review

Personally I would not spend that much on any video card but the performance is impressive for a single GPU. The heat and power consumption seem to be a flaw in the design, I wonder if nVidia is just being cheap and not putting the best cooling into their cards to keep their profits higher. I just m...

Re: New Gaming PC

I would agree on the video card ideas but it also depends on what games you want to play. If you go for a higher end video card make sure whatever PSU you decide to buy will support it.
