Wireless adapter advice

I need to add a couple of wireless adapters to my network. I need something that will work with Win7. Currently I only have a Linksys WRT54GL and the adapters I currently have only do drivers up to WinXP so I would like to find something that is compatible with my Linksys Router and Win 7. Obviously...

Reminds me a little bit of JJacksons' wardrobe malfunction, with that funky nipple clip she was wearing :lol:

Re: Western Digital TV Live Plus Media Player with Netflix

So, now that you have reviews for two HD media boxes which one would you prefer if you had to buy one? Even though this one has the streaming Netflix, the patriot one is still looking pretty good especially for the price...

Re: Patriot Box Office HD Media Player Review

I agree 100% that they would be great for kids TVs (as long as the kids don't fubar the remote). I myself have been using RCA DVD/Divx players on my kids' TVs and those work fairly well for Xvid files (sometimes had to reencode with AutoGK) but this box would probably trump that hands down due to th...

Re: Patriot Box Office HD Media Player Review

I was jonesing for one of these for awhile but ultimately was discouraged by the idea of having to wait for firmware revisions, also scared off by the lack of operating controls on the box itself ie: if the remote dies then you have a brick. Much cheaper than an HTPC, but then again my HTPC will pla...

Re: Biostar TA890GXB HD Micro-ATX Motherboard Review

I like the placement of the SATA ports on this one, some mobo makers aren't thinking and put them in line with the PCI-e 16x slot so you lose one or two with an oversize card. Looks like it would be a decent HTPC mobo.

Re: What Spider Did I Just Kill - has orange on the belly??

Nate I've had those spiders in my home every year since we built in '98. The first few years they were everywhere, I'd be sitting in the living room watching TV and see one or two walking across the carpet nonchalantly. My cat even lost interest in them because he got used to them. At first I didn't...

Re: EVGA GTX 400 Series High-Flow Exhaust Bracket Review

Actually, I have to ask. Were you using the Extreme Burning Mode? In all honesty I wanted to make it the worst case scenario and if it would reduce the top end temperature at all. Many ways to test it, but at the end of the day it took more than a full 8 hour work day just to run these tests in the...

Re: EVGA GTX 400 Series High-Flow Exhaust Bracket Review

One degree drop isn't worth purchasers' buying it separately (even just for S&H), but it is worth the manufacturers' adopting the design for future use since they can do so for no extra charge. A win-win for both parties.

Re: New Computer

If you want to save a little money you can get by with 2Gb of ram, i would kind of avoid Gskill ram. My computer with has 2gb Crucial Memory installed and registers 2gb whilst my brother has 2gb Gskill memory but only registers 1.78gb. so thats a little fishy. Also if you are using a 32bit operatin...

Re: Club 3D Radeon HD 4350 PCI-E x1 Video Card

Ahhh, I see. The reason I have these is that I bought a Gigabyte 4350 OC awhile back, and recently inherited a XFX 4350 and since the 2 mobos I have now have HD4290 and HD4200 onboard I figured they weren't really much of a boost over the onboard. I thought that if I could crossfire them using the 8...

Re: Club 3D Radeon HD 4350 PCI-E x1 Video Card

Yep, you're right. I dug out my mobo manual and find that it supports ATI Hybrid CrossfireX, and makes no mention of any cables needed. I'm not sure what CrossfireX does, can you clue me in?
