    New PC, New Problems

    Personally I wouldn't mess on, just take it back to the store and demand replacement or refund on the spot.

    PSU Smoking and Graphics card not working now

    sounds like the old PSU was not earthed correctly... suggest send back on RMA and ask for compensation for damage it caused.

    It's been a while

    Well after a very stressfull 3 weeks I got the video card issue sorted and replaced it with the rather nice Gainward GTX680 Phantom 4gb edition and all seems well, now finding my CPU is bottlenecking the GPU so looks like i'll have to nab myself a Ivybridge setup sometime this year.

    Windows 7 Need advice

    Well it should be okay for the most part... although stuff that is graphically demanding will probably cry out in pain on the nvidia 520m gpu it has... that said it'll beat the performance of laptops with crappy IntelHD gpus, it should be fine for basic console ports and older dx9 games...

    Banned members

    I don't see a problem in banning folk with or without a public posted reason, unless they happened to be financially supporting the site.

    Windows 7 Skyrim Hearthfire DLC Lands on XBOX Live September 4th

    In fairness I won't be wasting time with dlc even if it does reach PC, since it's a blatent copy of a mod that's been free on the modders nexus site for many months now

    Difference between Live Mail and Hotmail

    Personally I prefer this new look for the webmail clients for hotmail/live mail as it's a lot cleaner and the fonts are much better etc. No loss of functionality either.

    Windows 7 Microsoft Security Essentials real time protection

    Use it also here on my 3 PCs for a long time now... it's so unobtrusive you barely notice its there... but all scans by other branded antivirus and malware scanners using standalone bootdisk methods have showed it does indeed stop the vast majority of infestations.
