    I'm looking for a good forum for discussing technical matters about computer hardware, software, installation problems and etc! Thanks!

    PS - Not the forum here!

    www.amdmb.com (for amd platform)
    anandtech has a strange subscription service, and certain links are not attainable unless you pay a small fee.
    not the way the web works to me.

    Hi..

    there seems to be a search limitation, and threads are only available for a certain amount of time, for those who do not pay.

    It isn't expensive, but it doesn't make a bit fo sense to me.

    Anandtech is an excellent resource, and as you can see I have spent time there. Especially in the OS section. But there are enough other boards to use.

    Sam,

    Why not the forum here? The computer discussion area here will never be good unless people actually use it. There are several dozen true computer professionals on the HTF, and some of which hang in the Computer area.

    I would think if more people actually USED the area, as oppose to posting computer questions in After Hours- or seeking outside forums-- well the computer area would probably be 100 times better.

    -Vince

    The dedicated PC forums are much better at their job. HTF is great but the subject matter is far too broad.
    Also try http://www.sharkyforums.com/

    The hardware/software areas at Anandtech are helpful for the most part. The "Off Topics" area is completely juvenile.
