I'm still pissed about this BFG deal, I had a RMA number given to me for a GTX280 and they would not let me send it in because "they had to wait till they had a replacement in stock" and in the end it was just a stall tactic till they closed shop. Now I'm left with an expensive paper weight...
What I really like about this is that it will push prices of current cards lower and hopefully make the GTX280 even cheaper, I play at 1920 X 1200 and the GTX280 is good enough for me but a second one would be nice :)
Just wanted to thank the [H] Kyle and BFG for this, my orders for both 8800 GT (MSI and XFX) got cancelled on me so this was a nice upgrade/surprise.
Ordered yesterday, shipped today and should arrive Friday
:cool: Thanks :cool:
I just spoke to Rae and she added me to a waiting list, she said that they should be arriving around the first week of December and should be in the range of 100$ and that once they arrive she will e-mailing or calling those that are in her list
That depends on your comfort spot but I would not want anything running past 65 C but if it's between 60 and 65 and at load I would not mind it to much, again you are the one that has to feel comfortable running the system at those temperatures.
Also more important; at what voltage? Some...
Nice seting you have there Zipdrive
I have the same motherboard (Asus p5b Deluxe) same NB cooler (Spirit II) same video card (I think) same cpu (6600) but with a Zalman 9500 and I have to turn the NB cooler towards the graphics card because it is the only way that it would fit
I must say that it's a sweet looking setup you have there, I love the black on silver theme you got
Please post some pics on the new cooling you are using, I have a Silverstone TJ06 that is also similar to your setup (inverted motherboard) and I would like to see how it looks
It depends if you want to overclock, if you do and are on a budget the Gigabyte S3 look good, Dumo at Xtremesystems seems to be having a good time with it http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/showthread.php?t=114156 :D
Newegg has it for 116.99 plus shipping...
I'm currently doing the following build
Intel Conroe 6400 overclocked as much as I can on air
965 board (Asus P5B or P5b-Dlx, Giga S3, still cannot decide but that is another issue)
2 DVD drives (Writer and player)
Scythe Mine (Looks like it will fit inside the TJ05 wind tunnel)
Nice PS and good review, I wonder it the cables would be long enough to use in a Silverstone TJ05 which has the motherboard upside down?
I will be posting some spec on a planned build on a new thread and would appreciate some advice
I decided to try the red team this time (ATI) and the price I got for the X1900GT was to good (in my mind) to pas up so I did not need SLI, also I have not had an Abit since the BP6 days (good old days) and wanted to try them again and from what I was reading I thought that I could get a better...
Ok I took the plunge (thanks for the advice)
I went with the Abit NV8 and also got me a ATI X1900GT both for 260$ shipped (73 + 187), I will let you know once I get everything setup and see what I think of this setup and what performance I get
I will have to sell my DFI NF3 250GB LP board...
Thanks for the Replies
quadnad, how is your overclocking; Could you post the settings that you have achieved (ram and CPU)?
My main concern is that I have what I consider a very nice overclock and I'm worried that I will not reach those settings on the new board, see below
Ok, I have an s754 that I really love and want to keep a while longer with me
MB is DFI Lanparty UT NF3 250Gb with a A64 3200 Clawhammer 250X10 2.5Ghz @ 1.56Volts on a Zalman CNPS7000A-ALCU @ 34C idle
Ram is Kingston Hyper X (tccd) 2X512mb @ 250 Cas 2 3,3,3,6 1T @ 3.1 volts
