The Best PCs You Can Build for $600 and $1200 - StumbleUpon We’ve walked you through building your own computer before. In this post—which we’ll update periodically as prices and components change—we’ll walk you through the hardware we’ll need for three different system builds: a budget workstation, a powerful all-purpose PC, and an enthusiast’s system for gamers and professionals. While some consider the desktop a dead platform, there are still plenty of us who use them as much as or in addition to laptops or tablets, love to play PC games, or just enjoy getting our hands dirty and building our own systems. Before we go any further, we should point out that these PC builds are designed to optimize your all-around computing experience, with some emphasis on PC gaming. The components that give you the best bang for your buck depend heavily on what you’re planning to do with the system: Your parts will be different if you’re building an HTPC on the same budget, or a super-speedy file server for your home network.

19 Tips Every Windows 7 User Needs to Know - Page 5 How to load Windows 7 onto a bootable USB key To complete your Windows 7 power-user experience, you may consider dropping the whole darn OS onto a USB drive.

Emulators are programs that make old software "think" that it is running on the original hardware, while it really runs on your smartphone or in a window on your desktop. For those who would like to try making an emulator on their own but do not know where to start, I have written a short introduction into the craft and provided free libraries, tools, and documentation. © Marat Fayzullin [marat at komkon dot org]

Article: The Top 100 Indie Games Here's a list of 100 indie games that I've enjoyed. This list includes freeware games, shareware games, japanese indie import games, mods, and works in progress (WIP). It does not include browser games. I've tried to spread different genres more evenly around in the list so take the order as more of a general idea of how they rank than an absolute win/lose situation. This is not an exhaustive list and I encourage anyone with games that I forgot to post them in the forum. For old Dos games, I suggest using Dos Box. The List! #100 Cosmic Invaders Direct Link (Freeware) Tower Defense meets Space Invaders. #99 Typestriker XE (Freeware) An odd attempt to mix Shmups with a typing tutor. #98 Red Ace Squadron Pro (Shareware) WWI "lite" flight sim with multiplayer capabilities. #97 Harpooned (Freeware) Shmup with a social conscience that wisely uses satire instead of preaching. #96 Progress Quest (Freeware) Fuck MMORPGs. #95 Space Hulk (Freeware) A computer adaptation of the Space Hulk board game.
