    Anyone use the Sennheiser GAME ZERO headset?

    I have the game one and I think my audio technica ath ad700 sounds way better. There's a much wider Soundstage and it is far more comfortable to wear. Wish I just went with a decent stand up mic of some kind. Used to have the Zalman clip-on mic and hated that as it would pick up everything...

    Best video card for Q9400?

    750ti seems like the best option from Nvidia camp. I have a gtx 660 and it was bottlenecks by my 3.2ghz q6600. I just built a small computer with a g3258 and reusing my 660 improved my framerates in WoW and LoL by a pretty good margin. 660 is supposed to be a little more powerful than a 750ti.

    FX5900XT or 5700 Ultra

    5900xt!! i used to have a 5900ultra, well i still do but it's dead. there is a big difference between 128-bit and 256-bit. graphics look better on the 5900xt and the performance is much greater. you can flash or overclock it and run it at about 5900ultra performance levels. i don't know how well...

    don't raise the agp voltage, you'll hurt the card and probably the agp port along with it. if you want to add more voltage you have to look into the volt mods. if you search around i'm sure you'll find some instrutctions on how to do it. i wouldn't recommend it since it requires some experience...

    Well this sucks...but I wonder if this showed me that nvidia is tougher than ati.

    WOW!? i'm really amazed...water doesn't seem to affect computer parts? hell if my computer worked after being in a pool of water i'd prolly have a heart attack. if i live i'll probably marry the damn thing! well i feel a lot safer with my computer now, not having to worry about liquid destroying...

    i have the vantec pci fan too...i also have arctic silver 5 on my gpu. i would have it on my ram too but i swear those heatsinks are impossible to take off without taking the whole ram chip with it.

    xfx 5900xt's take up 2 slots. not because the hsf is too big, but because the plate goes over the agp and pci slot (the part where you screw in)

    Which Graphic Card Should I buy for $300?

    if you can't wait, i'd recommend a 5900xt. IMO they're the best mid-range cards for their performance/price. pick one up at newegg.com for about $180.

    Your nVidia 5900XT's Overclocks

    XFX 5900xt @ 478/928 i can run the clocks @ 508/948, but i lose performance with the high memory, and the high gpu clock causes games to lockup sometimes so i lowered it a bit.

    Anybody have this? NOT the BLACK version, just Mushkin Level One Dual Pack 184 Pin 512MB(256MBx2) DDR PC-3500. If you have it, can you post your specs? motherboard, ram timings, ram speed, cpu & cpu speed. I'm curious to know how well this ram overclocks.

    Bad Fps in Counter Strike

    if vsync was on he wouldn't be getting 100fps in the first place. and you CAN tell the diff between 100fps and 60fps. BIG difference. turning your cl_updaterate and cl_cmdrate to the max will raise your ms and give you choke and possibly loss. those settings are used for LAN games. having too...
