Topics I've Started

My Projector

04 June 2005 - 08:05 AM

I remember someone posting a topic on here before asking about DIY projectors. At that time I had done a lot of researching before and was thinking about starting my projector. Well I finally started, and now I am finished. This project took me a couple months to finish, but I think it turned out OK. I am only missing one piece, the LCD. I ordered the correct LCD from Hong Kong and everything arrived here fine, but when I went to strip the LCD for use in my projector a small ribbon cable broke and now I am waiting for a new LCD to arrive. Right now I can project just a white square, but you can get a sense of how big the image is going to be. All of the pictures dont do justice to what it looks like in real life. I am not a very good photographer. Here are some picture of the final product:

Has VGA input for xbox, dvd etc. Can also hook up to computer.

I have no idea why this came out green, but in real life the image is really bright and perfectly white. Even when the room is not pitch black you get a very nice result. It is about 6 feet tall and 4-5feet wide (approx)_

If you guys want to see the inside just ask, and I will take the top off. Please post comments too.

Buying Xbox: Need Help

27 March 2005 - 11:39 PM

I just got back from a big IT mall where I went to look at xbox prices. I foudn two xboxes that I really liked. The first was a translucent blue one, a Halo 2 Special Edition, that came with a copy Halo 2.

The other that a saw was another Halo 2 Special Edition Xbox that was Green and had the Halo 2 sign on it. It came with a copy of Halo 2 Collectors Edition and a copy of Halo.

(This doesn't have the Halo 2 sign on it)
The prices were:
Blue Halo 2 Xbox with Halo2 and no sign on xbox: S$328 = USD$ 199.623

Green Halo 2 Xbox with Halo 2 Sign and Halo 2 Collectors Edition and Halo: S$335 = USD$ 203.883

I don't know much about the different Collectors Editions, so good some of you help me out. Thanks. Please help as I will probably buy one of these ASAP.

Have any of you ever used any sort of emulators. I found a website called The Emulator Zone. Its a really cool wesite it you look around on it. They have emulators for just about every sytem thats avalible.

I was just wondering if any of you have ever used any of these. I am curious, is it possible to put a PS2 emulator on a XBOX and play PS2 games. The best one that I saw was for XBOX and was called CXBX I think. You should really visit the website for CXBX. With that emulator I think that you can just buy the xbox games and put them into your computer and play them. The only thing I think you needed to have was a certain type of DVD Rom that has a special type of firmware.

Building A Custom Pc

20 April 2004 - 05:48 PM

Well I've decided to start building a custom PC. This PC is being built primarily for gaming. Its secondary use would be school, etc.

I'm leaning towards getting a Intel Pentium IV 2.8GB. Most people say it's not worth it to go any higher than 2.8, they say that it is not needed for the amount of money But, I've been told by others that AMD Athlon XPs are also good. I have been looking at the 2600+ and the 2800+. Do you guys have any preference between the two. Pros/Cons?

The other components I pretty much know about so I dont need any help there. Can you guys just tell me the specs of your computers. im just interest in what types you have.
