comment How can I make the CPU to switch from “minimum processor state” to “maximum processor state” much much faster?
There's quite a few of us Delphi users out there still. Plenty at StackOverflow.

comment how to reduce image bit size
@Gnoupi: Some software (like Photoshop, even CS5) poor PNG implementations. For example, a screenshot of my file manager came out of PS at over 90 KB. The same screen saved from Paint.NET was about 77 KB. Letting OptiPNG optimize the compression of the IDAT chunks alone reduced the file size down to less than 60 KB. That's a 30% reduction in file size with zero quality reduction whatsoever. JPEG compression can also be losslessly optimized in some cases as well, though there's generally not as much gain to be had.

comment HDMI resolution limited to 1920 x 1080?
ATI cards can generally also run audio from their DVI ports if you use an ATI-specific DVI to HDMI dongle. If your card didn't come with one, they waffle between being slightly difficult to nearly impossible to find. You also have to get the right one for your card series as well (e.g. I know that they changed between the HD 2xxx and HD 3xxx cards.) All that said, thepurplepixel's answer is most correct in that I think you'd need a different video card to do 2560x1600 over HDMI. I'm not immediately aware of any cards that can do that though.

comment Google Chrome: How do I get my status bar back?
Correct: Chrome has never had a permanent status bar. It overlays one when hovering over URLs, but that's it.

comment Does the size of the monitor Matter?
@admintech: That's an unusual call to make without knowing more information about what the screen is being used for. It's not as if 24" LCDs are particularly expensive anymore.
