I am about to do a new build and I picked up two of the Antec 620 coolers when they were on sale, one for CPU and one for GPU (gonna strap it on a GTX 670). I grabbed 4 Gentle Typhoons so I can do push/pull on each radiator. A friend of mine said he thought that would make them too tall...
Just set up ssd for C drive. Have lots of storage space on D drive hdd.
I remember seeing something in these forums about setting up steam and other programs so that they seem to be on the ssd, but are actually referencing their place on the hdd.
Does this sound familiar to anyone? Can...
Yesterday my mouse and keyboard started to act goofy.
When it is happening, the mouse wheel no longer scrolls pages but only controls the zoom in/ zoom out function. If I double click on a desktop shortcut, sometimes a different shortcut is opened up. Sometimes it makes a copy of a shortcut...
I am about to build the i7 rig. 920, Gigabyte UD5 and 4870X2 running on Windows 7.
I have 2 Vertex 120's I want to set up in raid 0 for OS and programs.
I am considering setting up a raid 5 with 6 of the Barracuda 1.5TB 7200.11 that Dell has on sale right now.
The first question is, if...
It's been a while since I've built a new box. Are you guys still lapping the heat spreader on their cpu's before you mount your cooling, or has Intel gotten better at making them flat?
I just picked up an 8400 at Fry's. Should I dig out the old, thick mirror again and a bunch of grits? Any...
Thinking about a new rig for gaming.
My monitor is the 37" Westy that does 1920 x 1080.
Will one 8800GTX keep me on top of the mountain for a while, or do I consider 2 of them for the next system crippler like Crysis? I keep reading that 2 only start to make a difference at 1980 x 1200...
Just put together my new box:
Bad Axe 2
2GB corsair dominator ram pc2 6400 cas 4
eVga 8800GTX (100.65)
Vista Home Premium
Enermax 1K PSU.
Everything at stock speeds so far.
Installed Vista. New bios for mobo. Drivers. When I install a game (happened on both Quake 4 and Titan Quest)...
I want to get some great RAM for my next build (BA2, E6600, 8800GTX). I will be overclocking (haven't done that since AMD's looked like Nintendo cartridges). I am willing to pony up the dough for some nice high end stuff, but I don't want to drop $600 on Corsair 8888 if the board won't fully...
Seems like a good price.

I have a friend who is going to have a free day in Hong Kong sometime very soon.
I was thinking of having him find a Gigabyte DS3P since we can't get them here.
Are there any other cool new boards for C2D that are available in Asia but not here?
Thanks for any suggestions.
I am going to build a new Bad Axe 2, E6600, 8800GTX box soon. I will only start out with one card. If I decide to add a second 8800GTX later, will the PC Power and Cooling Silencer 750 Quad be enough power for the rig. I will probably have about 3-4 HD's, sound card and water cooling.

Will a single gtx do gaming with most/all eye candy on at 1920 X1200? I have a Dell 2405 widescreen lcd.
I plan on building a 6600, 2Gb ram rig soon. I would prefer to go single card to sli for now.
thanks for any input.
Since I did the new security patches today, my computer is slow as hell. Pages and pictures take longer thand they did on dial-up, and I am on a cable modem.
Has anyone else had any problems since the new XP and IE6 patches?
nevermind. McAfee just found a damn trojan.
Trying to squeeze the last oomph out of an old(ish) rig. Help me choose an upgrade (to my ATI 9700 Pro).
ATI x800 xt 256 MB
XFX 6800 Xtreme 256 MB
I have a choice of either. Both are slightly used and within my budget.
Going into :
2 gig of ram
I am upgrading my current box until the conroe/965 hit the market and simmer down in price.
I currently have an ATI 7900 pro running, but I am thinking of throwing in an Nvidia 6800.
Question one: How much difference does 256MB vs 512MB video memory make on an A64 3000+, 2GB ram, Nforce 3...
My computer just died. I am pretty sure it is the motherboard. It is an ABIT IT7. I have had various problems over the past couple years (one ram slot died, built in ethernet died, problems with usb controller, usb2 stopped working).
I have 2 80GB drives in RAID 0. Of course I never...
