    What was your 1st 3D video card ?

    Mine was the Intel i740... looks like it was one of the earlier ones to use AGP. Was my first computer when I went off to college and I still did plenty of gaming on it with Half-life. Really can't remember what I upgraded to afterwards though.

    Mixed 6970's crossfire monitor connection and power plug questsions

    Just a quick update. I got the 6 to 8 pin converter from Newegg and it works perfectly. I left my old card in the primary slot since I don't have a mini DP connection on the new card. Used the original 8 pin plugs for the new card and the 6 pin and adapter for the old card. The only unexpected...

    Mixed 6970's crossfire monitor connection and power plug questsions

    I've had an Asus EAH 6970 since January and just last week bought an EAH 6970 DCII to go crossfire in my Asus P6T motherboard. I was too eager when ordering and now that it's here I realize I have a few issues... With my original card I had two of my screens plugged in through DVI and the...

    Come across any 6970 reviews w/WoW benchmark?

    This is definitely going to help me out. I just got my Eyefinity 5760x1080 setup working in WoW last night and I did have one of those crashes while running at Ultra. I'll have to test this out after work today and see if I can play crash free.

    6970/6950 CrossFire / Eyefinity vs SLI along with triple CrossFire review numbers

    http://www.hardwareheaven.com/reviews/1084/pg17/xfx-radeon-6970-and-radeon-6950-graphics-card-review-crossfire-eyefinity-vs-sli.html It looks like the GTX 580's have the edge in a triple card setup for 5760x1080 in their reviews. I think I'm still gonna go for the slightly overclocked Asus...

    AMD Radeon HD 6870 & HD 6850 Video Card Review @ [H]

    It's looking like my best bet will be to wait for the 69xx series to power my eyefinity setup. Was planning to go with two GTX 460's with the price drop but I think I can hold out with my aging 4870's for a couple more months. A single 69xx card should run triple screens fine and I always have...

    Vista 64bit and online gaming problem

    I saw many of those threads when searching about this problem and I guess I'm a bit surprised that the game is running fine considering all the problems others are having. But he was able to get a LAN game running between him and another person running I believe XP. He's got no reason to lie...

    If any of those drives are the same serial as mine I would be very interested in buying it off of you.

    If you have a Maxtor 120GB please read.

    It's a fried board because there was definitely an electrical smell. It was plugged in through my dad's usb enclosure and I think the power on it was flakey or something. Also, plugging it in and turning it on produces no action whatsoever.

    If you have a Maxtor 120GB please read.

    I've got a DiamondMax Plus 9 120GB drive that the circuit board on it got fried. If someone has one of these that the platters crashed but the board is still good I'd be very interested in getting ahold of it to try and swap boards with mine. The mfg date of mine is 02DEC2002 so I'm thinking...

    W.O.W. or EverQuestII, which to buy and play ?

    Horseriding comes at level 40. Technically you can buy one anytime if you have the money. You just can't train for riding until that level.

    World of Warcraft is live.

    Anybody have one of the guest passes from the CE that they won't use? I'm on an army base in Germany and they won't have the game for at least another week. :( Thanks in advance.

    Is this dangerous? (219k pics)

    After looking at the board a bit more I noticed all the 1500 microF 10v caps are looking slightly bulged on top. There's 4 in a row of which the one is significantly taller as you can see in the pic. Another one near the AGP has a slight bulge. All the other caps are definitely flat.

    Is this dangerous? (219k pics)

    I've got this MSI nforce1 motherboard in a computer I just wasn't using much anymore. I bought a new case for a file server and decided to use this board for that purpose. As I was transferring the board to the new case I noticed one of the capacitors has some stuff on it. It's also taller...

    wierd and frustrating Hotmail login problem

    Well my wireless access stopped working about 15 minutes ago. I've tested it with three different providers and the login page will not work for anyone. Now that I'm home, strangely enough, the normal login works fine. Must have been some sort of maintenance or something going on.

    older motherboard question

    Has anyone ever heard of a motherboard that handles Slot A processors *and* has at least one 64 bit PCI slot? After doing a bit of searching on google I don't seem to find anything and I figured someone here would know for sure. Thanks
