As far as performance, I seriously doubt it.

I switched to Vista about a month back and have had no problems that weren't easily corrected, but with all the horror stories I hear about program & hardware incompatibilites there's no way to really tell.

Good advice here, thanks. I've noticed that simply alt-tabbing out of games will stop the noise even if it's still on the screen, though it returns as soon as I go back to the offending program. I've stuck my ear basically right up to the side of the PSU, and I'm pretty much convinced that it's be t...

Coil whine = too much power draw?

I've been plenty satisfied with the Neo HE that came with my P150 (lucked out and got one of the ones that worked), but since upgrading my computer to some beefier components I've noticed a grinding/whining noise coming from my PSU whenever I do something as simple as drag a window, and it gets unbe...

Ditto on the invoice lag. It took Neweg 6 days(!) to email me my tracking number and shipping invoice, I had already received my order by then.

They solved the shortage, I don't see how anyone is getting screwed.

Buying a panel over the internet is risky, but picking one up at a brick & mortar store allows you to crack the box and check the monitor out (Best Buy allowed me to anyway, and even gave me an open box deal after I was done).

P150 vs GeForce 8800

Simple question:

Will an 8800 fit into an Antec P150 with/out a little modding, or shall I just bite the bullet and upgrade to the P182?

Going from an Audigy 2 to an X-Fi pro gamer I did notice the effect the crystalizer had on the sound from my computer, it sounded more crisp. However I haven't noticed much improved in my gaming experience (though to be fair, I don't play many games with the option for X-Fi).

Aside from SPCR I frequent extremetech, anandtech, hexus, hardOCP, and bit-tech. Good variety of stuff between them.

Denis Leary put the entire "cuddly" argument into a rant once upon a time, if memory recalls it went something like there being a long line of all the animals in nature reporting to humanity on why they shouldn't be eaten.

Hello SPCR, long time lurker first time poster. Figured this was the place to make my grand entrance, seeing as how I have just bested the NeoHE. I got my NeoHE along with a P150 from Newegg from the 10-05 batch, and the supply refused to hold power for more than a second on my DFI Lanparty nf3 250g...
