    Is it possible to have certain sound go through headphones and other go through speakers? Like, could I have Ventrilo played through a headset while music played through speakers?

    Yes, depends on your sound card, sometimes the front jack and back jack are two separate outputs, sometimes they're just one combined.

    How could I check if they're two separate outputs? I have an onboard soundcard if that matters.

    What motherboard and CPU? And is the RAM identical (at least the same speed)? You could get this combo http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboD...t=Combo.646270 and save a bunch and put it towards the GPU (6850, 6870, possibly a recertified 470) and just get a brand new 4GB RAM pack and not reuse the old stuff.

    Edited:

    You can OC with a Z68 on sandy bridge, right? It just also lets you use the onchip GPU?

    Currently Yes, the RAM is identical. The Motherboard is the ASUS M4A87TD/USB3 [And my current GPU is the ATI Radeon 3850 HD]

    I also currently have a 500W PSU, I need the bigger one for the card (?)

    What brand PSU? 500W of a good brand should be plenty for a 460 and an AM3 CPU with 4GB RAM.

    Not entirely sure, since I didnt 'build' the base of this PC (a friend did) and the fact there is no markings on it make me think its generic.

    well im busy atm but I'll see what I can do for you when I'm done, to get the most value. Is the RAM you already have 2x1GB DDR3 1600 RAM?

    Run the 1GB modules in one channel and the 2 GB modules in another, for 6GB total dual channeled RAM. (yes you can do that). Make sure they're in the right slots for it.

    Edited:

    Double check the PSU you have - look for a label, it might be on the back side depending on your case. It very well could be a good PSU from a good brand that is capable of handling this.

    Edited:

    sorry for being late, figure out what onboard card you have, VIA lets you split it, some realtek doesn't. You could just post your motherboard model and I'll check it out if you want.

    Nice. Same motherboard as me! :D
    Yes it's possible.
    Get the latest VIA drivers for your card from
    http://www.via.com.tw/en/support/drivers.jsp
    Select your OS, etc, your VIA product is VT1708S
    Install the drivers then restart your PC and open the Audio deck, click the little tool in the bottom right corner and select the radio button that says "independent headphone" and press okay. Then in the windows sound settings, select the headphone/or speakers as the default sound device and communications device, and in Ventrillo go into the options and select the headphones as the output device.

    Is it possible to do the same for Chrome?

    Sorry, no experience with that. I think Chrome will always just use the default device.

    How big is the difference when going from a monitor with 6 ms response and 60 hertz to a monitor with 2ms response and 120hertz?

    I'm thinking of buying the BenQ XL2410

    Not much, your money's probably better spent elsewhere unless you're wanting to use 3D.

    Are you sure? A lot of people said that it was a very large difference. My monitor is from 2006 and it's starting to really show its age.

    Just my opinion, can your PC even do 120FPS with vsync on at the resolution the monitor is?

    Put the money towards that PC and look for monitors afterwards.

    I guess this is a general question, but does anyone know where i can find a site that sells Bamboo Pen & Touch nibs that ship to Sweden, preferrably free? I found some on amazon.com, but none on amazon.co.uk.

    1.Sure, if it works it's good
    2.Only on LAN most likely, unless you have a very fast internet connection higher than the bandwidth of the wireless, but pings and packet loss and some other stuff might worsen.

    Well, like I said, check your PSU out and tell us the brand / model, or maybe just ask your friend that helped you build it?

    I would suggest 600w. And any DDR3 RAM should work fine
