Sorry about that :b
The mitsubishi can be found for about $750 shipped I believe, and if you're finding prices that high for the viewsonic, you're lookin' in the wrong places. Check www.pricegrabber.com and www.pricewatch.com
first and foremost, back-up your data
if you're comfotable with messing around inside your computer, just take out this system's harddrive and add it to the other computer in your house, attach it to the cable the other system's harddrive is connected to and make sure the jumper on...
sure they are, head to your local compUSA or MicroCenter and ask for a parallel port switch, so far as i know a parallel switch is a larallel switch, unless you wanna get fancy and get a digital one (soft switch instead of a big knob)
what operating system are you running? I seem to remember creative having trouble to get their drivers to make their Live!-series sound cards ti generate a digital signal under windows 2000, I'm not sure if they ever cleared that up or not
that could be any number of things, could you give us some more information? Like what programs cause it to crash, does it crash after runing the programs for a while or right away? how old is your PC? Is your PC inside a cabinet in your desk? What what are your system specs? all of...
1) that's just wierd, windows media player doesn't make reading distinctions based on file size, I've got no clue, sorry 2) so far as the offline content, what good is it going to do you to view old prices? if the stocks are local then you they won't be updated however, to save a page for...
you may be able to extract them with one of macromedia's flash development tools, but i think once they're put in there you can't take them out separately, macromedia offers free temp licenses to allow people to check out their products i think, download Flash and see what it'll let you do
first, flat-screen are much better than shadow-mask, as the image on a flat-screen/true-flat/any number of brand names/etc. has a constant or near constant dot-pitch (spacing between the pixels, smaller is better) so eye-fatigue occurs more slowly, aside from the fact that the image is a whole...
simply playing the devil's advocate here, it's possible that since your other PSU was bad it may have damaged some of your other hardware on it's way out, it'd be a good idea to try and mix and match your hardware with hardware you know to be working to try and isolate the problem
yeah, here's another vote for amd's
they run hotter, but you get a much better bang for the buck (despite the clock speed difference, amd cpu's do more with each clock cycle than p4's, therein lies their advantage)
for an amd mobo, check out the aopen ak77-333, rock-solid and only $110...
sheesh, temps that low with a 33% oc? damned impressive, if only intel's could actually back up their numbers with an appropriate performance level ;) (yeah, i'm an amd fan :D)
that temperature is just fine btw, don't get worried until it gets into the 50's
set your resolution to whatever is most comfortable for your eyes (the 19" i use at work is set to 1152x864, and i sit a bit away from my monitor while coding so for close up use the res could probably be higher, 1280x1024 maybe)
i think there's some sort of federal standard for business...
well, to start, pull your network connection :p
then format + reinstall, who knows what other unsavory things are on your system now that someone else has had control of it
and definitely get a firewall, zonealarm has a free trial i think, and for whatever firewall you get never grant network...
yeah, that's pretty far behind, a lot has happened in the most recent two generations of gpu's that nvidia's released, aside from the clock speeds, though right now i'd upgrade to a radeon 8500le right now if i were going the budget route (particularly since they can be oc'ed to regular 8500...
nah, I don't think layne's death wasn't accidental, he wasn't a happy guy at all, his lyrics are proof of that
it killed me when i heard that he'd died, but maybe it's better this way, some people just aren't happy no matter what they do "if i can't be my own, I'd feel better dead"
there's a newer 128mb version, that also has a DVI out, in fact it's native video output is DVI which makes me think it's probably got the same visual quality as the 8500DV (it'd probably pay to do some research on this, that last bit is just speculation on my part)
thanks a bunch for the info guys, I think I'll be going with the vented cabinets since I don't have to worry about this boss you speak of, I just completed my first year of college so that's a bit far off for me I think :)
I'm debating what setup to use for the kit281's I'm building to use as my mains (surrounds, mains, and center are going to be kit281's btw)
This system is going to be used for more music than movies, so would it be better to go wtih sealed enclosures to get a tighter response and lose some of...
Brian - flatpanel as in LCD or flatpanel as in flatCRT?
any CRT can have an image burned on it, though it takes a ridiculous amount of time for that to happen with newer CRT's
if it's an LCD, no burn :)
you can find audio cards that have digital coax and toslink outs on them, so the sound cards can be connected directly to your receiver just like a dvd player, i've heard really good things about the Link Removed audiophile 24/96, i think that's what I'll be putting in my htpc this summer
Mike - sorry for taking so long
the performance of a powersupply is tied into it's temperature, that is, the hotter it is, the less efficient it is
also, electronic components in general, particularly those in hardware as sensitive as what's inside your PC, are very vulnerable to high...
that smacks of a power supply on it's last legs, power supplies are very sensitive to physical shock, it's possible that you maybe knocked it around a bit when you were moving the system
first make sure the fans in the power supply are turning on
if they are, then try this right after your...
