    Lock Up Issue with all games

    Hmmm, very similar problem i had long time ago. Try removing your sound card. If the problem continues, probably just a bad memory stick.

    Reliable - Stable Motherboard, Need Opinions

    Check out ABIT IP35-E, ABIT IP35 or ABIT IP35 Pro I was shopping for a P35 chipset awhile back and i ended up with ABIT IP35. I was actually leaning toward Gigabyte (DS3R or DQ6) but after doing some research on both, some people were having some issues where the motherboard would not POST...

    EVGA 8800GTS 320MB or 640MB?

    I'd suggest getting the 640MB, much needed when playing games with your native resolution. Also it's a good invested since newer games would benefit a lot on a 512MB+ ram...

    Sempron 2400+ or P4 2.0ghz

    I have 2 computers, AMD and P4, both running 512mb mem and an open 8x agp slot. They are almost identical so to speak except for the Processor/MB. My question is, which computer should i put my Radeon 9700 pro. I never had an AMD before and 2400+ is equivalent to 1.67ghz but based on some...

    Catalyst 5.6 Released

    I did notice some minor fps boost on Doom3 and CoD so not bad i guess. But for some reasons, AtiTool detects the driver as 5.4+ on my x800xl. Weird.

    x800xl vs 9800pro

    Big boost for me. I upgraded from 9700pro and all my games are smooth as silk, on 1280x1024 2aa/8af. I experienced no hiccups whatsoever playing HL2, CoD,BFV and Doom3 on max settings.
