    USB LCD for Monitoring Temps, etc?

    I know this exists.. Similar to what is on a Logitech G15, I'm looking for an LCD that I can use to display temperatures, CPU utilization, etc.. I would prefer one that can sit on a desk, but if it doesn't exist 5.25" bay versions are fine too, I figure I'll just get an external enclosure to...

    4GB RAM Not Being Detected? (Am I still able to use 4GB?)

    Ah ok. Yea, I'm also running a keyboard with onboard memory, and a sound card with onboard memory (I believe?).

    4GB RAM Not Being Detected? (Am I still able to use 4GB?)

    Yea I'm having similar problems. I'm running 32bit Vista Business, with 4GB's of RAM. BIOS Shows all 4gb's working, then windows shows 3.25GB's. I only have a single 8800gtx, so it looks like thats the reason..

    World First Carbon Fiber Case

    ^^^ I edited that for ya. I liked how at the auto show I went to last week, the new Viper motors had a carbon fiber name plate, mounted on top of the aluminum heads. It was so worthless, I laughed.

    World First Carbon Fiber Case

    Ah.. I've dropped my PC before.. I was just wondering if the CF wouldnt just shatter if I dropped it..

    World First Carbon Fiber Case

    I always thought carbon fiber was pretty easily breakable though.. I know they say its stronger then steel, but I thought you could just crack it into peices..like if you hit something.. Anybody ever worked with it.. ?

    World First Carbon Fiber Case

    I knock ultra because they have such problems selling their crap, that they are regularly giving them away for free, or for < $20. For a while there, probably a few months straight, you could get one of their cases for like $10 all few months.

    World First Carbon Fiber Case

    Hmm.. the carbon fiber, although great bragging rights, doesnt really look any different from other black cases.. And, its Ultra, which makes it instantly a crappy case. :p But I really like that power strip thing..

    The [H]ard Forum Terabyte Club - READ first post before posting

    I used to go to a LAN where they had about 10 10tb in-house servers. They specially built them all, they took mid towers, cut the innards out of them, took steel and, with blueprints, cut holes in them to mount hard drives, and are able to mount about 22 hdd's in a mid tower case. :O

    Should i buy a PPU?

    1) A ppu provides around 2-3fps extra in a game, not 10 to 20. 2) Anybody with a high end system wouldnt need a PPU at this time because there is no game that has enough items in it that are physics enabled that it would kill your high end system.

    Need for Speed Carbon: My take (post yours!)

    Yea.. PGR would be cool if it wasnt xbox only. Flatout 2 is a phenomenal game. Especially good for lans!

    Should i buy a PPU?

    Dan D is a good man. I'm glad that while I was gone he was laying some sense down in this thread. Its become obvious that people will try and come up with anything to justify spending stupid amounts of money on something thats completely useless. Pottsey I have a PCI blower fan to sell...

    Should i buy a PPU?

    I fully agree. PCI-E is the way to go for me as well. I would much rather put it in a third PCI-E slot then have it take away from the possibilty of me running an x-fi, which would actually give me real world benefits that the PPU wouldnt. And seriously, I can't even imagine better looking...

    Should i buy a PPU?

    You know theres a quote button in the lower right hand corner right? Also, I have yet to see anything (your link didnt work) that looks better on a PPU system then it does on my system.
