I've been a gamer for close to 15 years now. Mostly NES/PC, though.

comment “No Signal Detected” on monitor when plugging HDMI in monitor and DVI in PC
I see, thank you for answering. So, in this case, the solution would be to buy a DVI analog cable, or a DVI analog to VGA cable?

@ZippyV - Yes, Windows recognizes the monitor, and autodetects the model.

comment Will formatting a drive restore an encrypted partition?
Just went ahead and did it. The partition was encrypted with TrueCrypt which, when the volume that hosts the partition is not mounted, just lays there like a huge jerk and eats resources. Mocking me. Judging me... Anyway, formatting the partition with the unmounted volume destroyed the encryption and I can now get back the 120GB that laid around doing nothing.

comment How can I physically destroy data from a failed HDD?
@Shinrai - It was just a joke, I was not assuming anything about anybody. I... just thought it would be funny. :(

Let no man say that SU does not provide help to even the most (seemingly) felonious-helpingly of questions. :P

comment How to upgrade, if at all
Don't you get a warranty for all new pieces? Most online shops give, like, a 3-year warranty for all parts, even more (like 10 years) for RAM. If they break down, it doesn't cost you anything to get them replaced. The 300$ "upgrade" I recommended below is, pretty much, a new computer - a Motherboard, CPU, RAM, GPU, 650W PSU (which should be more than enough). Either way, I wouldn't recommend buying prebuild machines, as they tend to cost a bit more than buying the pieces and assembling them yourself. Of course, only if you absolutely know you're up to it.
