How to Spot a Good Motherboard

Posted on

I was recently browsing the web to check the price of my motherboard, when I found something surprising. I purchased my Intel DG965WHMKR motherboard for Php 6,500.00 back in May 2005, and as I was checking the prices I found out that the average price for this motherboard is currently and possibly for the year 2009 would be at Php 6,100.00 and that price is for outside the Philippines.

Basic Home Theater Setup and Installation for Newbies

Looks complicated doesn’t it? Nowadays home theater systems are getting cheaper and more affordable and I still can’t find a decent guide about installing, setting up and basics of these home theaters.

Kadayawan! It is that time of year when Davaoenos give thanks to a bountiful harvest. My friends and I also have a way of thanking by opening up a new business venture in the barbecue business but with cheaper and and BIG sized barbecues. It’s called AHIA BAGS BARBECUE GRILL. This is my first business venture and I have to say it has been quite hard planning it and we have been having a lot of arguments over the said business and so it is indeed true that friendships will always not come first but purely business. The recipe we have for this barbecue has been a secret for quite a while and is a recipe for most of the successful barbecue businesses in Davao. It’s hot,tangy, sweet and tasty, mmmm, makes your mouth water doesn’t it? ^_^, The location of the Beer Festival, this event is hosted by San Miguel Philippines, will be at F.Torres Street beside the Davao Convention Center and across Bakbak. Here is a diagram of the event:... Click here to read more
