    What was the very first video card you ever bought?

    Voodoo3 - Longbow 2 never looked so good. Next card was the GeForce 3 Ti 200.

    Powerful Enough For A 6970?

    Thanks for the info. The PSU was in the system when I got it (traded a 360). The 5850 is the Gigabyte Overclocked Edition with 765/1000 and I've pushed it a little further than that (but have since returned it to stock) same with the CPU. I had the 635 at 3.1GHz (a modest OC, for sure) with a...

    Voodoo5 6k Water Cooled

    Voodoo 3 (which I gave away to a user here on [H], I hope it's enjoy a nice life!) was the shit, at least to me. Got home, dropped that bad boy into my rig and played Longbow 2 for hours. 3dfx + LB2 = teh goodness.

    Reviving an old 3DFX powered PC

    LOL - wow - blast from the past. I had a Voodoo 3 up until last year when I gave it away in the Freebies thread. Still have several P3 CPUs (and one Abit motherboard). If I ever get to feeling nostalgic I'll throw it all together. Good to see some great (old) hardware put to use!

    PC shuts down in mid game. Psu?

    Mine does this as well.. and I know the temps aren't that high. CPU @ 52C according to CoreTemp and GPU anywhere from 65-70 in MSI Afterburner. Rig and overclock in sig. Now that I see someone else's PC is doing the same thing, I may look into getting another PSU. I have another set of PCI-e...

    Flickering across screen with my Raedon 5870 when overclocking

    My Gigabyte 5850 is factory overclocked and the only time I've seen it artifact is when I pushed it higher. (Something like 800+, if I remember, the factory settings are 765/1000). At the moment I'm running the card at 770/1000 with no problems. However... After I first got the card I tried...

    How Hot Is Too Hot? Gigabyte 5850 OC

    Found the problem.. the fan, on the card, next to the I/O plate isn't spinning all the way up. After I got the side panel off I could hear it rattling, will have to rig something up to fix that. The second fan is working fine though. Thanks for the help/info.

    How Hot Is Too Hot? Gigabyte 5850 OC

    I have a Gigabyte 5850 OC (factory overclocked to 765/1000). Playing BF3 @ 1920x1200 on "High" settings, I've seen temps. hit 93C. Doesn't stay there, but not sure at what point I should start freaking out. At 100% fan (using MSI Afterburner), temps are 80-85C. Idle is 45-47C.

Using the "on" button on the t.v. makes this light go out and stay out, but the screen remains black. It doesn't detect...

    Would stock AMD Phenom II HSF work with socket AM2 CPU?

    How do you like your 5050e? I've got the same CPU in my system (see sig) slightly overclocked to 2.8GHz with the stock HS/F. I'd like to upgrade to an aftermarket one, but have to find one that fits in my case.
