    Western Digital Ships 2TB Enterprise-Class HDD

    Their definition of "enterprise class" is much different than anyone elses in the storage industry.

    Sapphire Radeon HD 4850 X2 1GB [H]

    This might sound needy, but how about tests with this card with another of the same model in crossfire?

    Tuniq Ripper 1000W Power Supply @ [H]

    Good enough! I just needed a little boost in confidence. When you see a $90 (with MiR) 1kW PS you start to question, ya know?

    New 4850x2 system - need advice

    I will post some benchies once it's set up. I didn't see a whole lot of reviews and configs with this setup, so I'm not totally sure what to expect. But I would expect 70-80% of a 4870x2 crossfire-x setup (i hope).

    New 4850x2 system - need advice

    I understand where you're coming from, but from my angle it's not a matter of "need". I wanted to build something that was as scalable as he wanted to get a monitor for (he plans on buying 24 inch or larger). I decided 4850x2 crossfire-x was a good solution for the money.

    Tuniq Ripper 1000W Power Supply @ [H]

    Paul, Do you think this PS would adequately run a 4850x2 crossfire-x configuration?

    New 4850x2 system - need advice

    I'm building a new gaming rig for my bro-in-law. His wife wanted to get him something totally kick ass, so I bought a C2Q8300, DFI X38 and (2) 4850x2s. I bought the Tuniq Ripper 1000W after I read the [H] review. To tell you the truth I'm now a little jealous and I now want to keep it...

    CRYSIS - 1920x1200 Very High - What card???

    Buying a rig around one game is retarded. Consider other games you might play. I bought a 4870 because I know it will perform as good or better than a 280 in most games. Not only that, it still costs about 100 less than the 280.

    WOW players here is a good question

    The 2 dogs part isn't even an excuse. Try getting married and have some kids. No time for WoW then. Definitely not the kind of time to be raiding full time.

    4870 and power supply

    I'm using a 4870 with a 450W OCZ ps. Working pretty well for the last few days. You should be fine.

    Online Storage / Backup. What are you using?

    HP upline appears to be a pretty good deal. I am most likely going with this solution.

    SCSI Configuration Issue - Dell Perc 3/SC

    Ok, so I run into this every day. Here's my really bad but accurate explination. There are two sets of configurations for a HW Raid array, For LSI and Adaptec controllers anyway. The actually controller itself stores the array information and configuration. That is the NVRAM config...

    How do you back up Terabytes of data?

    I'm guessing video and pictures. 5TB is an huge amount though. Based on the criticality of the data stored, you can decide what you want. In this case, your data is probably not critical. Meaning that you would not lose money if it were lost, or anywhere near enough money to justify the...
