    Asus P4S800 / Dead CPU / Firmware Update

    Hey there, the CPU in my kid's PC recently pooped out. Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that I didn't make sure the retail HSF was properly secured. Oh well, all this tweaking, bound to miss something at some point. Anyway, it had a Celeron 2.4 (Socket 478, 400 MHz FSB) and I...

    Alienware ALX (dual-NV45) benchmarks

    I actually had spent a bit of time Googling on the subject before I posted. The search term you provided gave me even less to go on than I already found. (As as side note, whenever I give someone a UTFG I check to make sure the search term I spout actually gets the information.) In any...

    Allow BB code is sigs please

    I would think that at least we should be able to have a link and simple text formatting. (Bold, unlderline, one font size higher and lower than normal) I mean, most people use their sigs for their rig stats and it would sure be nice to be able to draw attention to the important stuff. This...

    You can run Dawn on an ATI. Just search google for "dawn ati" AFAIK, there is no way to do this for Dusk.

    9800 PRO Overclock , Is this legit??

    Just like any other OC. Entirely dependant on the quality of your pariticular chip. Looks like you got a good one.

    scared VGA silencer

    I can't believe this thread is still going. Folks, sometimes we bork the things we love. Anyone who has been modding long enough has killed something at some point. Perhaps not a whole component like a video card but certainly everyone has their share of stripped screws, bent brackets, broken...

    nVIDIA's marketing vs. ATi's

    Sorry but I have to agree somewhat. When it comes down to it, what's more appealing, a furry chimp or a pretty fairy? Fairy wins every time. Did it make me buy Nvidia this time around? No, look at my sig. But if I were to show off my card with a tech demo to a friend, guess which one I'm...
