  1. I actually cleaned out 100GB of unknown usage from my hard drive by unhiding the system files, and literally deleting the recycle bin folder (permanant erase). I also deleted the Volume System Information information folder. Although recycle bin may show empty, there were still a lot of things in there that I didn't know about. Disk cleanup didn't remove it, I had to do it manually.

    Seagate 1.5TB Can Beat a Raptor?

    Then why don't they try short stroking the drive and using the rest of the storage for, say archives and unfrequently accessed stuff?

    Custom I/O shield

    Monster glue? Or they make this weird double sided foam that's REALLY strong, not sure what it's called.

    Monitor connections

    Looking at pictures, it looks to be true . It has no DVI ports, 2 HDMI and 1 VGA lol. Get an DVI to HDMI adaptor or cable. Or get a DVI to VGA adaptor and use the VGA cable.

    I love Verizon!

    LoL. I bought the enV3 outright with a contract, it wasn't bad, at $130.

    [WTB] 2x 4870 or 4870x2 $200

    Pretty freaking fast . I run with vsync so I don't get tearing, so I don't know what frames it actually gets. I'll try to run some non vsync benches in a few days. I'm about to try Crysis on this card

    Is ATI's 5750 a Low Profile card ??

    It's not a low profile card. http://www.overclockersclub.com/reviews/xfx5750/. What picture are you looking at that shows it as low profile?

    The 4870x2 came in today, and I gotta say... It eats my 4890 alive. And the price is crazy too. When I bought it (returned now due to waterblock incompatibility), it cost me $200 + 7% tax in NJ. That's around $214, I got the 4870x2 for $240 shipped flat, I think I got a killer deal

    What's a better deal? 4870x2 for $240 or 9800GX2 with an EK waterblock for $150? I have 2 screens and game @ 1680x1050, and don't intend to upgrade monitors. I may occasionally do 1920x1080 on my TV. I already have a W/C loop. I'm leaning towards the 9800GX2 since I don't think I'll need the power, and I like folding. How are the drivers for the GX2 now? Are there still severe micro-stutter issues?

    Well, I was able to sell some stuff so now I have a total of $250. Some guy on another forum is selling the 4870x2 for $240, and I'm considering it.
