Thanks for the input you two i appreciate it greatly. I guess that coolermaster stacker i used to own would come in handy for times like these hah. I'll have to do some reading on freenas and the like on my days off this week.
I just figured i would stick with independent drives. I have honestly never looked into RAID, i've always just thrown my new drives in and moved on. I'll stick with that case unless it is smarter that i do a seperate server.
Well at the moment i'll be at 3 hard drives. I'd like to think that i wont fill this 3 tb drive but i have my doubts. Looks like i have some more researching to do than what i previously had thought. I'll look into the idea of doing a seperate nas and htpc.
Well i chose that case because i dont have a server for my media so i wanted the extra space for hdds. as far as the matx mainly because it was on the cheap end and came with free ram. Would it be worth the extra cash to jump the atx biostar since it also comes with free ram...
motherboard:BIOSTAR TA75MH2 FM2 AMD A75 (Hudson D3) HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
comes with this ram for free: G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB
I tried looking in the bios but did not see anything about video. Even in device manager i didnt see any mention of onboard video. Well i was hoping to just connect it to my tv so i could watch my .mkv videos on there since streaming through windows media center to my xbox isnt that great
mobo: asus p5e-vm hdmi
os: windows 7 ultimate 64 bit
cpu: core2duo e7200
gput: ati radeon x1900xt
So i have tried googling this and have found no solutions or information at all regarding getting hdmi output to work with this motherboard.
My tv will say searching for signal but...
yea i happened to read that before i posted this thread so i just wanted to double check. At most i'll add one more hdd but im not sure on that. Its a shame as when i first bought the psu i read nothing but great reviews on it and now im reading stuff about how its flawed.
Hey all its been awhile since I've had to build a new rig so i just wanted to make sure my power supply is still adequate or not. My power supply is the ocz gamexstream 600w. I dont plan to overclock or anything like that either. My new build consists of the following:
ASUS P5E-VM HDMI LGA...
like others said try locally owned stores but most of the ones around me charge 5 bucks for games like mario/duckhunt o.O. You might wanna try garage sales sometimes you get lucky and can score some good stuff there.
I couldn't believe how much they were going for on ebay just for that controller. It's sad when i can sell just my wavebird and get almost as much as what the local game store would give me for my cube, 3 controllers, memory card, and 6 games. Good thing I'm not as dumb as i was when i was...
yea need a less than 5 option in there. The only game I've bought so far is Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I played it a lot when it first came out and really haven't touched it since though multiplayer was kinda laggy most of the time.
I will probably get all of the accessories if the bundle is at a decent price. I really want to play the drums. The only one i probably wont try is singing unless im all alone i'll leave the singing to someone else much better than myself.
i usually dont get any of the free stuff i sign up for but this is what i have got off the top of my head:
games for windows or w/e its called subscription
st. pauli girl posters
amd t- shirt (of couse it was 5 sizes to big no love for the us really skinny folk when...
date bought- October or November of 2006
replaced- yes, i'm waiting to receive the box from Microsoft to send it back to them
i feel your pain op i just loaded up gh2 to play some gnr it froze so i turn it off then back on and bam ring of death starts laughing at me. Fortunately mine is still under warranty but im still pissed about it.
hopefully i'll picking it up on day 1. I have a friend who has the ps2 version and i dont get to play it that often. The only thing standing in my way of rocking out everyday is my 360 and it deciding if it wants to die or live.
im waiting for my 360 to die aswell im getting dirty disc errors and it freezes during games and stuff. Seems like it has been getting worse lately. After all the horror stories i've read im dreading the fact that i'll probably be sending mine in soon.
they are getting raped on resellerratings unless the lower the number the better lol. http://www.resellerratings.com/seller1932.html but hey i guess its worth the risk when its so cheap just a heads up though.
Amazingly enough as much as i have banged my controllers on the floor or thrown them at the floor they have never broke. Maybe i dont throw hard enough lol but my genesis controller is a trooper for sure cant tell you how much i abuse that and my playstation controller took but kept working. I...
