Re: Your opinion on US gun laws under Obama.

It was a flagrant disregard for the rule of law This is just embarassing. For many posts you insisted that something like Hitle...

Depending on the CPU you use, your PC (with integrated graphics) should idle between 50-100 watts and between 75-150 watts on load. How much time it ...

Yeah, you're right ces, the group of people who are considering to buy a dual-core SB i3 right now instead of waiting for IB is large enough to warrant totally mislabeling this topic.

The games you listed are so old, that the IGP (integrated Graphics) of a Sandy Bridge CPU will have no problems with it. And just about every mainboard (be it mITX, mATX or full ATX) has a 16x PCI-E slot, so you can add a graphics card when you need it. Because that is when you want to buy a new gra...

The CPU difference can easily be drastically reduced my making the G620 as slow as the G620T. The G620 mostly consumes more because of the higher clock. In many cases, it's probably possible to reduce the GPU difference as well (see above). Yeah. With the T and S series, Intel marketing is successf...
