    MSI P55-GD65 8 pin JPW1 with 4 pin PS

    Thanks Bill for your reply. I guess I should have started this thread in the power supply section. I double checked and I have a Antect TPII-550 but I decided to go ahead and upgrade to a Corsair TX750 since the Antec might be underpowered for a i5/i7. Wont be overclocking so should be...

    MSI P55-GD65 8 pin JPW1 with 4 pin PS

    I havent upgraded in about 5 years and today I noticed the CPU power needs an 8 pin connection but my Antec PS has only a 4 pin. Old threads from a few years ago say it is fine to plug the 4 plug into the socket however Im wondering if the i5 and i7 really need whatever the 8 pin gives. Do...

    Please no more aliens in crysis 2!!

    I really enjoyed Crysis but I have to say most of the fun I had was before the aliens showed up. I had a blast with Farcry but the Trigens also kind of blew it for me. So I am really looking forward to Farcry 2 because it will not have monsters or aliens. Im quite sick of games that have...

    Official BenQ FP241W Thread !!! Info, Pictures, Reviews

    That would be good. Lately I have really grown tired of fps games that use horror, monsters, aliens for plot. I would like to see more games like SOF or NOLF etc.

    chronicles of riddick sucks bad

    I loved the game also, even better than HL2 imo. I didnt get the shimmering effects but Ive since updated my gfx card drivers so Ill try it again tonight and see if they appear. I thought the engine did a great job. If you can get rid of the shimmering I think you might enjoy the game. I...

    What do you listen to while gaming?

    In EVE I listen to trance or When I used to pvp in SWG it was mostly System of a Down or Slipknot. Ill listen to the bundled music for the first few hours but then turn it off depending on the game.

    Ok people, what kind of game do you want to see?

    Id like to see an adventure/FPS based on the movies Se7en, Silence of the Lambs, Bone Collector, Saw etc. Where you have to investigate a series of murders and hunt down a killer. I wouldnt want it to be just a point and click affair but more cerebreal. Youd have to analyze your evidence and...

    DVD games, and the price we pay (small rant)

    While it would be nice to have all my games come on DVD I can understand why publishers still release on CD. They can hit 100% of the market by putting out on CD since DVD players still read cds but not vice versa. So it makes sense at this time to still keep it on cd. When they quit making...

    McAfee or Norton?

    I tried AVG, norton, mcafee, trend micor and NOD32 and by far the best Ive found has been NOD32. Almost daily updates, light footprint and very fast scan. Give the trial a go and see how you like it.

    Too many drives on a rail?

    thanks, I wasnt really sure what to call it and misunderstood what a rail is. So if I understand correctly, at startup each drive will use about 2A per drive * 6 drives gives me about 12A total? If the max load on the lead is rated at 19A can I assume that it will be able to handle it? And...

    How fast is your internet? started this service in Tokyo about two years ago. There are a couple of electric power companies offering fiber optic service also now so the competition is driving the price down.

    How fast is your internet?

    100Mbps fiber optic - upload and download speed are same, I usually get about 13000k/13000k, 5 static IP`s at about $50 a month. 4.3 gigs in 2.5 minutes is sweet :cool:

    "A Duplicate Name Exists on the Network"

    Im gonna try that when I get home. See if I can ping the old host name and see if its still there. Also maybe try to see if its still there using nbtstat -n. I think that should show if its still there right?
