Looking at the logitech g500 for £40 from scan.co.uk Worth getting or is there another similar priced mouse that's better?
[QUOTE=Flon22;34446724]Looking at the logitech g500 for £40 from scan.co.uk Worth getting or is there another similar priced mouse that's better?[/QUOTE] Totally worth it, especially at that price.
1.5TB Internal for $165 or 3TB External for $199
[QUOTE=TehWhale;34448474]1.5TB Internal for $165 or 3TB External for $199[/QUOTE] Hard drivers are really overpriced right now.
[QUOTE=vexx21322;34448532]Hard drivers are really overpriced right now.[/QUOTE] yeah but i need one so
[QUOTE=TehWhale;34448537]yeah but i need one so[/QUOTE] I'd probably go with the best size:price one.
[QUOTE=vexx21322;34448304]Totally worth it, especially at that price.[/QUOTE] Thanks, just bought it.
[QUOTE=Hiroto;34434225]Any good mouse recommendations? I've been looking into some Coolermaster mouses and they don't look comfortable at all.[/QUOTE] Try the Razor Deathadder. Tons of pro gamers (CS/CS:S) use it, so it is worth a try. If you can afford it, you should try the Steelseries Xai. It has a great driver and is really comfortable. The sensor (laser) requires cleaning though. If you are on a budget, try the Steelseries Kinzu. It is 7% smaller then the Xai. (Don't buy it if you have a normal to large hand) You can also buy the MX518 or the upgraded version G400. That mouse is proven to be one of the best gaming mice ever created. They are both a bit heavy though. (I prefer lightweight mouse) So: Cheap? - Steelseries Kinzu Steelseries fan? - Steelseries Xai Good sensor and Razor? - Deathadder Logitech pro ass build quality for the real shit? - MX518/G400 Hipster? - Steelseries Sensei (Upgraded version of Xai REALLY expensive) Lightweight? - Steelseries Kinzu v2 Pro Edition
I have a Thermaltake Black mouse, its got 4 buttons (wish it had 5), a braided cable and an on-the-fly DPI switcher which is pretty convenient. It's also really big, which is good because i have long fingers.
On-the-fly switches bring out my inner OCD and I can't stop pressing them over and over.
I'm thinking of getting a new HDD for my laptop. [code]117GB Western Digital WDC WD1200VE-22KWT0 ATA Device (PATA) 47 °C[/code] from speccy. It's got 18.9 gb left, and I want some more space. Any recomendations?
So I am a little confused on my RAM. I bought [url=http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231428&nm_mc=AFC-C8Junction&cm_mmc=AFC-C8Junction-_-Memory%20(Desktop%20Memory)-_-G.SKILL-_-20231428&AID=10440897&PID=3938566&SID=]this[/url] and the speccy says 8.00 GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 798MHz (11-11-11-28.) Should it not say 1600 MHz?

Ok so I'm a little confused on the concept of a home media center. I have an old computer (2003 I think) that I want to put media on and stream from another computer over my home network. My internet connection speed doesn't matter at all in this, right? My router can do up to 125 mbps ([url]http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833162173[/url]), so is that the rate at which the media should stream?
My files are copying at 0/bytes a second. Nothing explains this, trying to copy from desktop to folder

You're most likely going to be looking at a laser printer.
Arctic Silver 5 or Arctic cooling MX-2?
AS5 or MX4
Is the Logitech G3 still a good mouse in terms of competitive gaming? I bought this thing in like 2006 and it still works, haven't had a reason to switch, it feels comfortable, used to play CS 1.6 and did really well with it, but recently I started practicing in quake live, and have been wondering if I should switch to the Microsoft WMO. I have one laying around here somewhere, just read that some of the top quake live players use it. Guess the simple and cheap stuff are sometimes be the best. So, are laser mice (my G3) no good for this kind of stuff? Thanks.
Is it possible to connect a wireless modem to a (wireless) router, wirelessly?
[QUOTE=Somebody_404;34459505]Is it possible to connect a wireless modem to a (wireless) router, wirelessly?[/QUOTE] If a modem is wireless it has a router build in, then you'd use your router as a wireless bridge.
How do I go about setting it up as a bridge?
[QUOTE=Brt5470;34458861]AS5 or MX4[/QUOTE] I like MX4 myself cause of the no break-in period and non-conductivity
[QUOTE=Somebody_404;34459640]How do I go about setting it up as a bridge?[/QUOTE] It differs between routers, not even all routers are capable of being a bridge, your best bet is to google it.

[QUOTE=userman122;34461211]Yes. It is a good mouse. Many extremely good players use the MX518 which also is old.[/QUOTE] I bought the MX518 not too long ago (2011). It's a really good mouse, I'm using it now in-fact. The newer mice will probably be better though.
My MX518 started having scrollwheel problems Bought a Microsoft wireless kb + mouse combo, the mouse had a non-tactile smooth scrollwheel that I hated so I replaced it with a Razer Tron mouse and I'm loving it
For those in the UK who are after a G400 [url]http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Logiteh-G400-Optical-Gaming-Mouse-Black-/180808277032?pt=UK_Computing_CablesConnectors_RL&hash=item2a19035c28[/url] Normally not shown when searching for the product due to the seller's misspelling of Logitech, but was the cheapest I found. And no, before you ask, it's not some Chinese fake copy, I received a genuine G400 from them.
