  1. I don't think I'm going to change my mouse now, doesn't look like they have changed all that much since I got mine, might check the warranty though as it has a 5 year one and there is something that isn't quite right with it.


    That Vista keyboard I originally linked is no good for me, doesn't have a number pad and I use it all the time! So still on the hunt for a new one.


    Damn Jordan for moving and being offline, he'd know what to buy, as would Piro, what ever happened to him anyway?

  2. That mouse looks identical to mine, except its all broken on the top, or is it squishy?


    This is what I have got atm cost me about £50 i think, cordless is fine for me, not playing FPS games, and tbh have never noticed lag with this one!


    That keyboard is a little pricey, even if price isn't an issue :laughing:

  3. Hello there! I am currently using a wired Microsoft multi-media keyboard and a Logitec wirless mouse (MX7 I believe). Both of these are a couple of years old and could do with replacing. I have no idea what to replace them with.


    I know I want them to both be wireless, and I like the multimedia controls on the keyboard. I use my computer mainly for playing games (WoW) and surfing the net/watching films etc.


    So does anybody have any recommendations. Price is not an issue :)


    EDIT - This looks good, has anyone got one?

  4. To destroy a hard drive just drive a nail through it (which shatters the insides). As for old parts, really depends on the age of the various components because of the way the technologies change all the time, for example, DDR memory from a P4 or AMD processor isn't going to be compatible with a dual core cpu which requires DDR2 memory.


    List what you have and what you want, if you don't know what you have send the service tag from the back of the machine my way and I will look it up on the Dell website and let you know.

  5. I've found that a Vista machine that was upgraded from XP is generally more prone to errors and oddities than a machine that has Vista installed on it only.


    That might be the problem then! : peace:

  6. Most places are out of them as soon as they get them, so great deals won't be had for sometime yet. I wonder why the PS3 section in my local GAME and HMV is always bigger than the Wii section even though the Wii sells a lot more?


    Because Sony pay for shelf space, as do M$. They always have done (well when I worked in Game they did and that was a few years ago now). Nintendo don't, that is why you get reps from Sony and M$ but not Nintendo, the reps come to check they are getting what they pay for.

  7. I played Strikers at my mates and wasn't really impressed, I'm not into football, even if Mario is involved. I'm wanting to get one mainly for the games due later in the year such as Metroid and SSB, but I want to play something now. Is there a release date for the next version of pokemon stadium? (whatever it's called).

  8. I have decided that I am going to buy a Wii next week but I'm wondering where I should get it from, if there are any good deals about and what games I should get. I have been playing WoW for over 2 years now and I haven't been keeping up to date with the current generation of consoles :heh:


    I will continue to browse the Wii board (this is the first time I have been on it since it came about :heh: )

  9. I got beaten up last September, some of you may remember. I thought I had a thread about it, but I can't find it if I did. Well anyway the police still havent done anything about it and even if it does go to court, I can't remember the specific details that would make the difference between getting a conviction or not.


    I'm nearly 23 and used to think I live in a safe area, but since then I don't walk anywhere on my own. I'm too scared, even going into town during the day, and especially in the evenings. At the time I didn't think it would make a difference, but it has.


    Sorry to hear this happened to yet another n-europer, and dude, before it happened to me I don't think I would have helped, but since September I definately would!!! It's the most horrible thing to happen and it shouldn't happen to good people like us!

  10. I just bought:


    4 hard drives

    a raid card

    a load of ram


    for my new server...I also bought a DS lite with DKR and FF3 from gamestation. Then I ordered FF Dawn of Souls and FF4 for the GBA from VGP because I can't find Dawn of Souls in this country and FF4 was $20 canadian, which is about £9, bargain!!

  11. Are the ariels on the router detachable? You could always get one with a higher dB frequency that'd do the job.


    Yes they are, that could be a better idea, do you know anywhere to get them?


    Quite a few wireless hubs have a repeater mode, which extends the ranger of an existing wireless network... example: http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/ProductInfo.asp?WebProductID=276873


    Well I was looking at this which has a repeater mode and bridging mode, but then it has a * saying that it only works with another version of the same access point, but it doesn't specify if that is for the bridging or the repeater modes.

  12. Something like this?


    A bit expensive, though.


    Yeah that is an option, I might have to go down that route.


    Can't you just move it to a different phone socket? Or play your DS in another room? It is portable you know :heh:


    There isn't anywhere in the house that it can go other than where it is..and I want to be able to play my DS in my room :P

  13. Right, I currently have an ADSL wireless router (a netgear DG384GT) which seems to provide wireless internet access for most of the house, but not my room, grr. Is it possible to get another wireless router (as I have a wired connection to my room) and use it to extend my current wireless network? This is so that I can get my DS, and soon to own Wii, online.

  14. Here be mine:




    I want to upgrade my graphics card, I can either buy another 7600GT and run them in SLi, or I can get something else completely. What are those new 8800 things like? What about in SLi?
