    4850 - crashes on new games

    Hey guys, I have the following system: Q6600 (stock) Abit IB9 8 gigs memory ATi 4850 (newest drivers) Windows 7 Ever since I've started playing newer games I've had huge problems in those games. Arkham Asylum, Just Cause 2, and Borderlands are a few examples. I can play them...

    New processor, now I have problems

    It's not on a Raptor. I really think it's just a processor driver issue with 7. Again, I had the ram and video card for over a week without a problem. I dropped the new processor in, 7 said it installed a new driver as soon as it booted, and then the problems started. It's completely stable in...

    New processor, now I have problems

    Hi all, I just got a q6600 for my Abit IB9 motherboard, the best processor that can fit in it. About a week ago I put in 8 gigs of RAM and an ATi 4850 card, both which worked great. But with this new processor, I can't get Windows 7 (build 7100, the RC) to be stable at all; it freezes...

    Squeezing the last out of my IB9

    For graduation my parents gave me a budget of < $600 for a computer upgrade. I would go for i7 but to get the processor, mboard, memory, and vid card, it would far exceed that, plus I also REALLY need a new case, as I have lost the door to this one, so therefore I need to get the last bit out of...

    Politicians Threaten Schools Over Campus Piracy

    I lol'd This is pretty dumb. Most universities take the threats from the RIAA seriously. Mine does stop as much as it can short of throwin' the internet switch off, in a few ways, for instance, they regularly try to bust the on-campus DCC hub (and have only succeeded once and then...

    Intel shows off their 80 core processor

    My friend was trying to intern at a company developing one thousand core processors :eek: They were 8 bit PPC processors, granted, but apparently the thing performs at insane rates, is reprogrammable on the fly, and used something like 10watts of electricity total.

    wow on a mac?

    WOW on Mac has issues, not to mention that whatever Vent server he uses will have to have Speex installed to be compatible. I know my guild has that all set up but I have heard a lot of bitching in other guilds who don't know things about that. He was better off with a PC.

    Quad core means no physics card needed

    While the PhysX is, from what I've heard, pretty much not worth the cash by any leap of the imagination, your claim is faulty as, by your reasoning, you could also extend it to video cards. There's 4 cores after all, why not put one on video processing? That's because video card processors...

    First Pico-ITX Review

    Mobile-ITX showcased

    :confused: they are completely different. the pico ITX is NOT designed to run this low power, with integrated peripherals (video, etc). The form factor may be small but its not designed to be a PDA. as for "small enough", pico ITX would be an absolute brick in your pocket compared to...

    PC Gamer takes a crap on Penny Arcade

    I agree with the article. While I do not agree that putting them as the cover is either a good way to show theyre not that popular or even a non-dickhead move, I agree with what the article says. The guy even says "I find it entertaining." I too find the comic entertaining. However, it has...

    Trying to remember name of a game

    Back in high school (~7 years ago) we played this game in CS class. It was a browser based RPG with magic and swords and crap where basically you just clicked a button until the thing died, autolooted gold and items, and from a dropdown box selected a harder monster or clicked a button and got...

    Help me raise my overclock

    Its possible ClockGen isnt actually giving those speeds right? did you benchmark before and after to see if it works? And as many people will tell you (and I will confirm), a platform that cant prime95 for at least 24 hours straight is too unstable to be worth using.
