My brother make videos and we have an iMac, lets just say it is not substantial for his needs. Now just to get the point across we came up with a fair MAC-Pro, it has an SSD for faster boot and render, then a 1 tb drive for storage, a 4 core cpu, two radion hd whatevers, two monitors and no other special add-ons, price = 6,992.00 USD. Now we came up with a massive decked out PC based substantially off of Dream Machine 2011. It has an SSD, an intel i7 3.4 ghz (two more than the mac and 200 dollars less) a 3 tb massive kick ass hard drive which cost less than the one tb, 8 gb of ram for 50 dollars, the mac was well over 300. The biggest newest graphics card NVIDIA has the 590 costing about 750 dollars. Two 27" monitors a decked out sound system, a RAT 5 Mouse, a generic keyboard, v8 cpu cooler, fair case from cooler master, 1000w power supply, Blue Ray dual write disk drive thing, and the dream machine mobo. It came in at 2950 dollars and every price for parts was rounded up to the nearest 5 dollars. Mac = about 7000 PC = about 3000 Mac = less storage, less speed, less performance PC = KICK ASS Mac = is it worth it just to do videos PC = what is a good PC movie aplication/program

Hello, For some reason, My pc will cut off internet to websites and such, while maintaining connection with things like Skype and certain parts of steam (e.g. Chat, games, etc, but not store, profile, anything website-based) and all I have to do is restart my PC, which is anoying, cause my pc starts up slow, and has a myriad of startup programs. Has anyone had this problem before, and fixed it? please help me out, I would be very thankful. Thanks in advance, Krayzi99

I'm trying to find a simple way to turn on my PC multiple times each day. I use the BIOS to turn it on now to record radio streams. I'd like something external to the PC, and something I could use to set several On Times each day. I don't know where to start. Should I attempt adding a relay to parallel the PC's power switch and then activate the relay? Should I attempt to build Rube Goldberg mechanism to mechanically activate PC's power switch? Wake-On-Lan doesn't seem to be the answer as how would I reliably send signal while I sleep? Even if you don't know of something specific, I'd be interested in where to look or approaches to investigate. Thanks, Scott

I have a big outdoor plastic closet with shelfs in my garden. i want to place a pc with crt screen inside heating the space in which the pc and screen are to be located is 1/4 m3 (1 m wide x 1/2 m deep x 1/2 m height between the shelfs) or 1/2 m3 (1 m height) but with other objects sharing the space the computer is a pentium 1 (~40 W power). it is intended to be on for long periods with the door closed. the closet stands in a shaded place but air temperature outside can get to 35 C + sometimes. i dont want to cut vent holes in the closet the monitor (15 crt) is off when the door is closed. though i may switch it off and close the door while it is still hot how to prevent overheating ? is a water tank thermostat set to 45 C in the air near the pc (with the 240 V to the pc going thru it) good enough thermal protection ? insects we have lots of ants. how to protect the pc from them ? will the hot air in the closet be enough to distract them ?

Hey guys...i was just wondering two things. First, is it theoretically possible to build one of these nintendo pc's to be operated as a fully functional pc for gaming and internet use, with your tv as a monitor and to install jacks to be able to connect to a surround sound system? also, i am not too good with computers and all that jazz but ever consider a nes controller that would operate as a mouse? this, of course, would be assuming that you could use your pc in the way i mentioned above, if not it would be kind of pointless. i also thought it would be nifty if it could be a wireless deal...you know...just so you don't have to sit 3 feet away from your television...

After seeing www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/487585, I learned that they used iStopMotion for the graphics. Also, I was able to play on a Mac, and I have to say, I kinda dig it. Is there anyway possible for me to install the Apple OS on my computer and still keep my current OS (Windows XP)?

Hi Guys! I need some help. I recently got several pc power supplies and I don't know how to turn them on. That sounds stupid, but I don't really work with them much. I tried plugging it in expecting the fan to at least turn on, but nothing happened. No outputs from any of the leads either. What am I doing wrong? Thanks!

Hey guys, I recently pulled out my N64 and played Mario Kart 64 for some old-time fun. It was a rush.Anyways, I saw a video on youtube of someone who hooked up their N64 controller to their PC, and all the buttons worked.Now I recently saw an instructable on something similar to this:https://www.instructables.com/id/SNES-to-Parallel-Port/But I'm not sure if that same method would work or not.I also found this: http://arcadecontrols.com/Mirrors/emulatronia/n64pad/index.htmWhich is pretty much what I'm looking for, but I want to see if there's another way that doesn't involve the creation of a circuit with IC Chips.Anyone know? THanks.

If I were to build a gaming PC and put Linux on it (probably Ubuntu or Mint) Could I play decent games on it? such as First person shooters, strategy, and RPGs? I'm hoping for more like main-line games (COD, Halo, Age of Empires, Civilization....), not shady, third party download type games.

Hi guys, I recently salvaged a decent PC runing on a Pentium 4. I got a LCD monitor with it too, and was in hope of making a DEDICATED jukebox. I was wondering if ther is some OS for a pc thats sole purpose is to store music and replay it, with some customizations available of course. If not, I see that there are plenty of jukebox software out there to install on linux or XP, but I was wondering if there was any program that executes itslef when windows start. Please and than you for any help!

I have always wanted to see my electrical usage in real time. However, the watt meters available can not handle whole house wattage. I have an idea but lack the programing skills to pull it off. Use a modified usb mouse to read the dial as it spins and tabulate the totals. Because of the distance through the glass to the meter disk- a laser pointer may have to be used. Required to work: USB mouse Modified mouse driver- must not be recognized as a mouse in the PC customizable display output. Laser pointer? Anyway, if someone could help with the software that would be great- Thanks

I'm having some trouble deciding whether to buy a bare bone kit computer for less and build it, or buy a more expensive pre-built one.Here's one of TigerDirect's bare bone kits-http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/searchtools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3825393I like this one but the main problem is that I'm worried i will get all the connections messed up (serial cables, pin connectors, etc.) But it is about $100 less than this pre-built one belowhttp://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?skuId=8885575&type;=product&id;=1212192194316So here's the whole thing in short- the bare bone kit computer i might screw up, but it is a lot less than a pre-built one (I'll probably trust the pre-built one more).Please help me decide which one.

I have a very old desktop about 7 years old and its in a very bad condition and can be barely used. It was a home computer before this and now not many people use it anymore. So I would like to convert it to a media PC to attach it to my TV. I just want a simple media PC that I can watch streams and watch downloaded movies in good quality(Full HD) and just simple PC uses. So I was thinking of upgrading my old PC to a media PC by changing some parts like the graphic cards and all. Bare in mind this is my first time attempting to build a computer so im not very knowledgeable on it. However, I do know the basics of each components in the PC. These are the specs of my old pc ;- -AMD Athlon(tm) 64x3 Dual Core Processor 4200 + 2.2GHz -3.00 GB RAM -NVIDIA GeForce 7300LE -250GB HDD harddisk -32-bit Operating System When I opened up the PC it was in a bad condition and full of dust. When I took out the heat sink, the CPU was stuck to it so I think I damaged the pins of the CPU when I took it out.( But I wanted to change that anyway) By the looks of it there is barely anything I can salvage other than the case. I have attach some photos to show you the condition of it. I would like to ask some help on some links or advice on is it possible to salvage anything(motherboard maybe) and what components should I be looking at for the uses I want it to carry out. I know a lot of people will suggest to just buy a brand new pre-builld desktop but I really want to try to build this for the experience so I can build a better PC next time in the future. Thank you very much, Every answer is much appreciated.

Every now and then when you least expect it my computer freezes and my pc gives me a bluescreen error and immediately restarts the same does not happen when i use my old 8500gt ddr2 1b graphics card. Is it due to a loss of power or is the ddr3 version graphics card causing the trouble as my previous one is a ddr2?
