That was my first TFT (well the 17" one anyway), set me back about £330, S-PVA goodness, still the best monitor I've owned for colour reproduction, it blurred a little bit though when gaming, so I ditched it for a newer (inferior tbh) TN based monitor.
Mid Feb if memory serves.

Hah does look amazingly dated now, takes me back to my school days though, great game, many hours wasted on that old thing.

I don't think that's really the idea, 5k is a good few hundred loans on that scheme though and they all make a difference.

But whatever, voted.
That's quite modest compared to some of the stuff that's tackled Pike's Peak, looks good though, nice to see Dacia venturing out into some motorsport, it's giving me flashbacks to the Suzuki Escudo from GT3.
Holy shit look at that wing
Not discontinued, just under a different company name.

Yup me last night, one of the better ones, fills in the gap before Tokyo Drift and even I'm shocked to say it but, The Rock managed to not ruin it all.

I cant see that being true (other than swapping the side the driver sits on maybe). Personally I'd never considered the possibility of a car being totally redesigned for another country, just seems like a massive waste of time and money.

Well, I posted the pics in the context of American interiors somehow being dumbed down vs Euro interiors.

I'm saddened though about the direction Honda is going though. Starting to use cheaper quality plastic and trim, following what Toyota has been doing in the last few years.
That's sort of the point, it's not 'impressive' as such it's just for one of the more basic cars we have over here it's interior is (I imagine) much better than anything on a comparable American car.
Jay wrote:I don't see anything impressive about that.
I give you the most average of average cars Europe has to offer, the Vauxhall Astra
Apart from the leather and the TV screen even the most basic models have that interior (my piddly 1.6l rental did anyway ).
I'd be getting Home Premium unless you need any of the extra bits Pro/Ultimate gives you.
Vilham wrote:K so wtf is the difference between all the versions of windows 7. Which one do I want to get ideally.
I had a 1.6l one of those as a rental last year, nice little car, after the crap wagons I'm used to, having cruise control and hill start assist toys to play with was a novelty. Yours got that weird electronic parking brake? I like the idea but dread to think what would happen if the electrics failed lol.

Finally I have some pictures of it, got around to taking the thing to the car wash.
Bit outdated there, it's been called "The O2" for about 3 years.

20Mbps line = max 2.5MBps downloads, that upper case B is all important.
For the 80% efficiency rating badges they're throwing on everything these days yes it does, that said, I've never known a PSU actually be able to run at it's maximum load for any long period of time either, they just crap out under the strain so you want about a 20% buffer, hence what I said.
Finray wrote:TEP, I thought the 80% efficiency means for a 800W PSU it'd pull 1000W from the plug?
Well you'd want a ~530w PSU to handle a 490w draw anyway as PSUs are generally around 80% efficient. That calculation is still quite incorrect though, I've got a fairly hefty amount of crap in my PC but only one GTX460, I'm still running a 2 year old 535w, it runs ok but, I am right on the limit, I did have a 6th hard drive in recently and it started to fall over from time to time

Yup. Suck it, folks.
You can get 27" IPS screens for a lot less than £1k, this one for example, no excuse for an extra £400 for what is essentially, an Apple logo.
Winston_Churchill wrote:its an IPS monitor, totally different technology and much better quality.
pretty small market (mostly graphic designers and the like) for IPS monitors of that size, making the price ridiculously high. plus the apple tax
Sounds suspiciously like my work keyboard, and I agree, they are a million miles apart from 'gaming' keyboards, typing is much nicer, I type all day every day and never have any comfort issues (I don't think I've found a keyboard that has keys cushioned quite like Cherry's do) but, alas I'm a sucker for shiny things, so I have a Razer keyboard here at home
Uzique wrote:so my no-frills £25 cherry keyboard came today... and it types and feels infinitely better than any 'gaming' keyboard i have ever purchased. it easily beats the fragile-feeling, piece-of-shit saitek cyborg and far outperforms the piss-poor plastic tactile response of the logitech g15. the keys are solid, cushioned, take some effort to push down and give a wonderful response. the keyboard also has all of the media functions and shortcut keys easily mapped to the f1-f12 buttons and an apple-key style shortcut system. no need for a keyboard the size of a fucking desk, no need for some gaudy design with a million LED's lighting up your desk at night. no need to hear the clackety sound of cheap plastic rattling away all night as you game and type to friends. why don't more people just go for this sort of ergonomic, typist-friendly office keyboard? why has everyone been scammed into this marketing-bubble that is 'gaming keyboards'? i can see the performance/functionality difference with gaming-mice, considering they have higher-sensitivity and bonus buttons/scroll functions... but what's the deal with keyboards? i am literally in disbelief at how much more solid the construction and feel is of this keyboard compared to the £100+ 'gaming' keyboards i have wasted money on before.
what a joke!

Remove overclocks from GPU?
Reinstall Bad Company 2?
so my next thinking is reformat (havn't done in...long long time) to rule out software, and if that fails buy new bits The cards out of warranty and i need new HDDs, OS and mobo anyway

-Sh1fty- wrote:Hey guys, so I bought this Sony Vaio laptop in late June. It seems to have come with Microsoft Office 2007. Whenever I start up an Office program I would get a window prompting me to enter the product key. I used Powerpoint a few days ago last, and it worked fine as did every other product. There were no limitations. Now I cannot change anything, I can only view files.
I'm assuming this was a limited version of Microsoft Office no? What surprises me is the lack of a "## day trial Microsoft Office '07" in the start menu, so I thought I owned it, guess not right?
Now I need to DL it quickly because I had some Powerpoints to finish for church tomorrow. Darn it, they're gona crucify me for this.
It does always seem to be the elderly or mentally ill that use it, I could never go back
