Re: Help with a PC (minor, having to do with power)

What motherboard? My MSI 975X platinum has the 8 pin, but doesnt require you use it. Only if you want to unlock the overclock options. (this is even with a Q6700) However, if you want to buy a new PSU, i might be buying a new case soon (new thread to follow) and would have the rocketfish 700w (look ...

Re: Would this work (IDE--->USB)?

You should be able to. 99% of external drives (cd or hdd) are just standard equipment in an external enclosure w/ a usb->ide converter inside. So, you shouldnt have a problem taking the cd drive out and putting it in a computer. But, as for putting an hdd in the enclosure, unless you have a 3 1/2 to...

Re: XBOX 360: NOV BC Update

Yeah, as nice as it is they are working on it, i still wish they could add Rallysport challenge 2 and Unreal Champ. 1

I still have my original xbox, but the games look so much nicer on the 360. especially Rallysport challenge 1.

Re: Quick questoin about aol service still charging.

nevermind, got it taken care of. Turns out aol, instead of canceling her service, sent a discrete email saying when the service went free, they made a new "premium plan" that included their security software, unlimited dial up access, (you know, incase she got sick of how fast cable was) and a 10000...

Quick questoin about aol service still charging.

Ok, so my grandmother has used the aol service for about 4 years now through a work discount program. She is using the service on top of roadrunner, so there is no reason to pay for the service right? and has anyone else had to do this to know if she can cancel the service and still keep all her 'ao...

Re: Obligatory Black Friday Thread

i was very dissapointed with the 'sales' this year. Compared to last, there wasn't anything really on sale. Even our store (best buy) there wasn't even a line to cash out after 6:30 (opened at 5) and it was just a normal, busy day. hell, when i left at 2:30 (got there at 2:30am) there were still 'do...

This one i messed up on, i meant the most common problem i see, not that it is user caused.
