Computer is practically silent. even with a Raptor? :? you might get more by selling the parts individually, ie sell the CPU+MB as one lot, DDR as one lot, etc. DDR prices are still quite good.

Looking for a fan. Maybe you can help me

I need a 120mm fan. However, it has to push a lot of air because my computer is running extremely hot, because of the weather. I'm not too worried about the noise right now, as long as it's not too loud. I had the Aluminum Enermax 120mm fan. It was pretty good, but maybe there are other options out ...

That model looks nice, but it's too expensive for what I'm looking for. My budget is around $1000-$1200

Is it worth it buying a 1080p LCD display in 32-inch size? Will I see the difference? I will be watching from about 5-6 feet away.

What do you think of these LCD TV's?

I'm looking for a nice LCD HDTV and I found these. They are reasonably priced, but I would like to know what the pros and cons are for each model.

The other option I was considering was using a HDTV capture card. I would connect the cable box to the capture card, and the DVI from the video card to the DVI of the monitor. This set up would be perfect because I could use my PC as a PVR. However, I haven't found a good HDTV capture card that work...

The monitor is a Dell UltraSharp Widescreen 2007WFP. The Dell website doesn't mention anything about HDTV support on this monitor. However, I have seen a lot of online reviews and they all say that this monitor supports HDTV.

I like the idea of a DVI switch. I didn't even know they existed.

Question about VGA and DVI

I have a Dell monitor which accepts DVI and VGA inputs. I also have a video card which has DVI and VGA outputs. I want to connect a HDTV cable box to the DVI input of the monitor so that I can enjoy HDTV. However, that leaves the VGA input of the monitor free so that I can use it with my computer. T...
