    Beware when buying expensive open box video cards from newegg. Shady dealings!

    wow didn't know newegg does something like this. I've scored a few good deals on newegg open box, and luckily I haven't dealt with refurbished. Most of my items are monitors and video cards. So far everything I bought have the same warranty as the original.

    Need a soundcard that outputs coax/optical to my receiver

    i dont think any of the creative x-fi card has the optical output on the card itself, they only have it on the I/O drive which is inconvenient for HTPC.

    strange loss of performance for my 8800gt :-/

    soft modding it helps the overclock.. but it's weird now after i changed it back to default, i stilll have 100 in loss of 3dmark06 score oh and when u say it smokes right outside of the box, are u trying to say it's running really hot?/

    strange loss of performance for my 8800gt :-/

    Before all these soft volt modding and new drivers, my 8800GT which was running at 720/1800/975 on forceware 169.09, got a solid 3DMark06 score of about 13440 after editting my bios to change the volt to 1.1 and install these new drivers (169.13, then 169.21) my 3DMark06 drops about 100...

    8800GT Overlocking Results

    look at the top of the cube and the bottom of the cute. if the two clock of duration are the same then ur fine. if the bottom clock reads lower than the top then it's artifacting....basically when atitool detects an artifacts, it resets the bottom clock.

    GIGABYTE 8800GTS 512 - MY MINI REVIEW

    u get a score a little below 14K in 3dMark06 with a Quadcore running at 3.6ghz...that's a really low score for a card that cost $400... my 8800gt also get a score really close to 14K in 3dmark06 when pairing with DUAL CORE e6750 @ 3.6 ghz.

    8800GT Overlocking Results

    just curious, how many hours did you scan for artifacts with ATITOOL ? passing the test 30~60 minutes doesn't mean it's stable. when stable i mean at least 3 hours. I have my 8800GT went through for a good 56 minutes until atitool detects artifacts.

    HOWTO: Edit and flash your video card's BIOS in Windows (nVidia/G80 Specific)

    Backing up the bios can be a lot more easier with NiBiTor. Simply run NiBiTor (in Vista, make sure you run it as adminstrator). Tools --> Read BIOS --> Select Device... (select your video card then hit OK) once that's done, go to: Tools --> Read BIOS --> Read into NiBiTor then from...

    sata2 on a sata1 mobo?

    on the sataII HDD, there's a jumper that limits to only 1.5gb/sec and this jumper is there by default. i have no idea why they do this, but in order for us to fully use the speed of sataII we have to remove the jumper. so with the jumper on, i think you should be able to use it with sataI...
