Ive been reading into it, and have decided to replace my current 500G Hard drive with a 256G or higher solid state drive. My understanding, is that as long as I buy a 2.5" drive, and clone my current one, it should be a simple swap.
Anyone else have any experience with this or know of a better d...

| Money Talk|| Insurance (Alfa) screwed me - ChroniX on 12/15/11 at 9:41 pm|
A little over a month ago, I traded in my truck for a car. Almost weeks after that, I was hit. The major problem, is that I had not transferred insurance over to the new car yet (Holidays/Thanksgiving week and procrastination).
Called Alfa, they said that it was okay, and that I had 30 days autom...
| O-T Lounge|| How screwed am I? - ChroniX on 11/28/11 at 9:34 pm|
I got hit by some woman in an suv this afternoon, and from what it looks like, my axel may be damaged along with my driver side door and quarter panels.
The problem is, I just bought this car a week ago, and haven't swapped over my insurance from my previous one yet. The insurance company has no ...

I may have found the answer, but was hoping to get a second opinion before I spend more money on a PSU.
My desktop was working fine the other day, now when I power it on, I do not get a post beep. I have researched the issue and from what i have found, It may be a problem with my power supply. Sh...

I've been wanting to get BF3 for some time now, but after finding out that Steam will not be caring it due to Valve's policy of restricting them from connecting directly with consumers, not sure I want to deal w...

Here are the main highlights of the 1.8 update:
Endermen are rare (YAY!) and die in water.
Zombies now drop rotten flesh (Not feathers)
All the tame mobs will drop meat except sheep and once killed will not respawn in that area.
XP will be used for levelling up. You get XP from killing mobs...

Very addicting game, and its the first real rpg game ive found for android. Defintely worth checking out.
There are 6 characters to choose from. The storyline is good. Quests arent as boring as expected. The party system and being able to swap between each person, gives you control over any char...
| Gaming Board|| Steam Sale: Publisher Packs - ChroniX on 7/11/11 at 10:51 pm|
Its too bad the summer sale is over (I missed buying ME2 :banghead: ), But they still have publisher packs on sale. Getting 50 games for $75 seems pretty legit. I would buy the Valve, Square Enix, or Rockstar pack, if I didnt already have the good games on each list....

I just received a permanent 50 slot vent server yesterday. I only have about 5-6 active members as of now, so i figured i would offer the remaining space to anyone on the gaming board that needed it. Good thing about it, you dont have to worry about it ever going down. Since my friend bought $400-50...

Finished the single player campaign last night, and tried out the online gameplay. I have to say, its disappointing.
Who ever said it was close to L4D was giving it too much credit. The necromorphs greatly outpower lower lvl players with the default weapons, trying to shake off one by pressing "...
