    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...

    media speed test?

    I know HDTach is the accepted harddrive testing solution, but what am I to use to test the speed of other devices, such as solid state media? I ask because I want to compare the speeds of some brands of SD cards. Thanks!

    a7n8x computer to computer w/o crossover?

    I read somewhere that this board doesnt need a crossover cable to connect directly to another computer, as in you can use a regular cable, on the 3com port, and connect to another computer. anyone know how to do this or if it has any merit?

    My opinion is better than yours.

    And here it is. Doom3 looks fantastic, runs a steady 50+ FPS at 1024 with medium detail on my system, which blows away ANY game out. ANY. Farcry canNOT compare at all. The gameplay: blow away demons while having to pay attention to your surroundings and solve some stuff. More killing than...
