    Halo Reach...PC or XBOX?

    Been lookin for a new FPS for my desktop. I've always liked Halo but not sure if it would be as good multiplayer for PC. I'd consider getting it for the XBOX but I still want a new PC FPS...suggestions? And does anybody have Halo Reach for the PC? If so how's online experiance?

    Direct X / win 7 or crossfire issue?

    Upgraded the drivers last night, same problems. Ran the 64bit dxdiag, same reporting. Downloaded the profiles, but what do those do? Do I just need to install them or do I have to change something?

    Direct X / win 7 or crossfire issue?

    I just put a new system together and am trying to work out the kinks. I've been playing a bit of starcraft 2 and have had some FPS issues. Here's what I got: Mobo: Gigabyte 890FXA-UD5 Processor: Phenom II x6 1090t Video Cards: 2x Sapphire 5870's RAM: 8GB @ 1333mhz OS: win7 64bit Not...

    Return 460 Sli and go for 5870?

    I was running with a single 5870 for a while, it's ok but it depends on if you want to max your settings. It works fine but I didn't play any of the demanding FPS games (crysis, mafia ii, etc..). Otherwise it works fine. I got an extra 5870 and crossfired them just in case I want to go for...

    Completely Retarded Exhaust Mod Idea? Need Feedback

    How much money / time do you think this would cost you? I'd be interested in the results. I'm not a fan of WC, I think it's too much upkeep. I think as long as the duct isn't terribly long, and the fan at the end is big enough, you might get good results. But I also think the amount of hot...

    Problem with blu-ray player with ATI and PhysX installed

    I've actually heard of a very similar problem with alienware systems. http://forum.notebookreview.com/alienware-m17x/500085-ati-5870-crossfire-driver-issues-alienware-discussion-thread.html Post #6 started to question the issue with the blu ray players. I didn't bother reading the rest of...

    Corsair 800D

    No problem btw, but I definitely recommend using the step by step build on corsairs website. I used that with the mobo / power supply / h50 manuals to do the majority of the install. Things started to come back to me after 10 years lol. Altho the H50 was a huge change from just a fan back in...

    Corsair 800D

    Oh ok now I feel like a tard lol. And I got the AX850 - its the model that you plug all the cables in to the power supply yourself. I didn't see the cable in the case, I'll take another look later. Thx Redbeard. Here's another test...it's a lot cooler in here tonight so thats probably why...

    Corsair 800D

    Ok, well I finished quite late last night. Took me about 5.5 hours...yeah I know I'm slow. I used corsair's step by step build here (it was VERY helpful): http://www.corsair.com/systembuild/report.aspx?report_id=1099104 I have a lot of the same parts... Case - Corsair 800D Power Supply...

    Corsair 800D

    I got the same case just a few days ago. The rest of my parts are comin in today. Went with 2x 5870s, the 1090t, and an H50. I don't have any extra fans but I'll post my results as soon as I get them in. My 2nd 5870 doesn't get in until Monday but I'll post what temps I'm getting when it does.

    anyone try phase cooling?

    I see. Wow that's nice. So what's the snag then, why does it cost so much? Is it the cost of the parts or the length of the time it takes to put together? Your system is huge but I've seen phase cooling systems built into the case in a section below it...

    Case with good cable management and air flow?

    I know right? I think it's due in large part to the fact that they actually listen to the community. They have a rep in this very forum asking for input on their new 600T so they can make adjustments on future models...very cool.

    Case with good cable management and air flow?

    Yeah it's a bit expensive. They have a smaller case coming out soon...I have to say I haven't done much research on cases but I'm hearing a lot of good things about Corsair. They're new to the case market but it seems like a lot of people are happy.

    Case with good cable management and air flow?

    Corsair 800D. It's a beast though...very large case. Check this review though...I just got the case, haven't received all my other parts yet but am excited to put it together. http://www.guru3d.com/article/corsair-obsidian-800d-review-test/ It's set up pretty well for air or liquid cooling.

    Corsair Graphite Series 600T mid-tower gaming case

    Do you guys have any future plans to incorporate a cheaper method of phase cooling in any of your cases? Because that would be neat-o.

    anyone try phase cooling?

    I've seen phase cooling setups run $800-$900 http://www.crazypc.com/products/cooler_express-92801.html These things are crazy, anywhere from -50c to -150c temps. It's basically a small AC unit for your processor. Rather expensive but I've heard of people buying the parts and building...

    Any release time frame for ATI 6800 series ?

    I see. Well, it's worth it for me. I'm ok with spending $300 for the 1090t though for what I'm doing. That and I keep hearing Intel is going to change their chipset again and AMD plans to keep theirs the same.

    Any release time frame for ATI 6800 series ?

    I haven't been in the hardware scene in quite a while and am getting back into it but if you're changing ATI CF cards for NVIDIA SLI cards wouldn't have have to switch out the mobo too in order to gain the benefits, incurring more cost to you? Not to mention the outrageous price of Intel...
