    Graphics Card Options

    After having a lot of troubles with my current graphics card (XFX 9600GT) I sent it back to XFX to take a look at. Unfortunately I couldn't get a new one sent out to me but they have put me into their 'upgrade system'. I'm not entirely sure how much of a discount I'm getting but any discount has...

    Pulsating Power Weirdness

    Hi all, as you've been so helpful with previous dilemmas I thought you could almost certainly help me out with my current one. Since I did a dust around in my case (using air duster sprays carefully) I have found that my PC won't turn on in a usual way. Now when I go to turn on my PC it seems to...

    Rebekka Gu?leifsd?ttir

    Craptop Upgrade

    Wanted: Dummies Guide to ND Grads

    After a long long time researching and then forgetting about it I've got myself a set of soft ND grads. Last night I was at the point where I didn't even know how to fit the filter holder to the camera properly (in fact I put it on backwards and was wondering why it didn't fit too well...) but...

    This is my sharpest shot, what's yours?

    I've been reading a lot of photography related forums where people will argue for days about which lens in sharper but in reality I don't think there would be any way to really notice unless you exaggerate a flaw (which Ken Rockwell does quite a bit). With this in mind the sharpness of an image...

    Put your eyes to the test

    There was a topic about this on another forum so I thought I would post it here too. If you go to http://www.xrite.com/custom_page.aspx?PageID=77 you will see what all of this is about. I just did this with my standard uncalibrated Dell monitor and scored 4 which isn't too bad (the lower the...
