    PSU Budget!

    If you're simply using the integrated graphics you can get away with something in the 400-450 range. This supply gets some excellent reviews and I've used them before without issue: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6817371045 Review: http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/ ...

    Full of doubts.

    Well you've got one glaring problem right off the bat. You've chosen a mini itx case but list the motherboard as micro atx. That board will not fit inside the case and you need a mini itx motherboard. A 450w PSU should be fine for this build. You could get away with an i3 CPU but the step up...

    This is starting to get stupid...

    While most of the posts in this section are perfectly reasonable, there seem to be a growing number where people have done zero research, have read nothing from the install guides on the blog site, and just look plain lazy. Those of us who regularly post replies (gordo, jester, mate, etc.) are...

    Core i3-530 / H55M-UD2H Overclocking...Strange Results

    I got a H55M-UD2H today along with an i3-530 ($170 for both at Microcenter). What a great little CPU - clocks right up to 4.0GHz. I'm using a stock cooler off an i7-860 and I'm sure with a better heatsink and a little more voltage this CPU could run 4.2GHz easily. I did my stability testing in...

    9800GT Question

    Ok so I've got a monitor that only has VGA and HDMI inputs and I can't get the 9800GT to boot into SL 10.6.4 (or .3) with a DVI to HDMI cable. Right before the OS loads I just get a blank screen and the monitor tells me to check the input cable. I have a 9500gt and the display comes up fine...
