    IMO yes especially since the GTS 450 is already in your possession. ;)

    EVGA GeForce GT 640 vs GTS 450 ?

    GT 640 vs GTS 450 benchmarks Sorry, had to finish jacking off. As you can see the GT 640 runs cooler and consumes less power but is slower in every performance benchmark. But the 640 is new technology, so that means it also has the awesome power to run DX11 games extremely slowly as well.

    WD Caviar Black WD7501AALS 750GB seems slow...

    You have to go into the shortcut properties and run it in Windows XP compatibility mode. As long as Vista is telling HD Tach that it is XP, HD Tach will run just fine. :D

    What is your ping difference wired v wireless

    I use netgear 802.11n wireless bridges and typically I ping 4-7ms higher than my brother who is wired when we play on the same servers. So it's not as bad as some people may have you believe. I've never, under any hardware, 802.11b/g/n, pinged 50 ms higher over the past 5 years... FWIW

    Best Glide Games

    Starsiege Tribes needs to be on that list. They eventually got OpenGL support working after about 10 patches but God that game looked good in Glide on a voodoo3. And the gameplay is still fun and challenging today..

    Switching...and need some opinions/advice/knowledge.

    hrmm i'm gonna try my luck with synergy and if i'm unsatisfied i guess I'll look into a KVM. I've gotten it to work quite well before. hopefully this time will be no different. I can't believe I didn't think of a simple Y adapter for my headphones, lol. Might have to stop by radio shack...

    Switching...and need some opinions/advice/knowledge.

    I listen to music and game long after everyone else in my house has gone to sleep, so I need to use headphones so as not to disturb them. I also use voice communication in games but plan on using the mac as my main hub for listening to music.

    Switching...and need some opinions/advice/knowledge.

    Hi :) Well ever since the Intel Macs came out I've been keen on getting one, and I've been needing a laptop lately, so I decided to kill two birds with one stone and pull the trigger on a 1.83 C1D/512/60GB white Macbook. Don't worry, I've already got a 1gig stick of ram on order from Newegg and...

    Going to BB tonight... got ?'s

    I think the real benefits of Vista for an enthusiast (such as xb360 media center connectivity, the games for windows initiative and DX10) won't be readily apparent for a while, but in a year or two everyone will be running vista. Remember when XP came out people were very concerned with...

    Going to BB tonight... got ?'s

    If you get the OEM version the license states it can only be installed on one PC and MS considers a mobo swap to be equivalent to a new PC. People have reported being able to call MS and get OEM stuff reactivated on new hardware but that is at the very least a grey area and could be piracy and...

    Fullscreen BIOS logo - can it be changed?

    Hi, A colleague of mine is wanting to change the full-screen BIOS logo splash screen on his HP desktop and has offered to pay me to do it if it can be done. So far I've successfully been able to change the Energy Star logo on Award BIOSes but I have been unable to find anything regarding the...

    "Possible" Vista love for macs? (Now with more XP on Mac flavor crystals!)

    The mobo is a proprietary form factor, but still uses a standard Intel chipset and everything... I did find it interesting that the EFI feature was only cut in the 32bit version, and remains in the 64 bit version of Vista. I think MS is going to push a lot harder for 64 bit computing with...

    Which is better? Asus P5wD2-E or Gigabyte G1975X?

    I'm gonna vote for the P5WD2-E - the G1975X has given me nothing but problems so far...

    Gigabyte GA-G1975X - anyone else have it yet?

    Yeah definitely - the 4pin molex could sure be in a better spot than where it is. I'm not sure if the molex is required but I don't want to unplug it either. At least not yet.

    Gigabyte GA-G1975X - anyone else have it yet?

    Hi all, I got some new parts from Newegg yesterday - a Pentium D 920, TT Big Typhoon, 2 gigs of PQI Turbo DDR2-667, and lastly the Gigabyte GA-G1975X i975x LGA775 motherboard. I'm wondering if anyone else is using this board yet and if so what are your experiences with it? ;) I'm having...

    Just Ordered My 975X motherboard! :-D

    What about using the second PCIe slot for the video card? That way the pci slots would be behind it and very usable. :p

    Yeah this board owns. When I had a full tower I had a DFI NF4 SLI-DR and a cooler master hyper6 with 2 fans on it and now I have 95% of that power in an SFF. With a Zalman 7000. :D

    Torn: Audigy 2 now, or wait for X-Fi?

    IMO, get the Audigy. Don't spend over $50-$60 on a sound card now unless its PCIe. (Which isn't happening...yet.) PCI needs to die dammit. ;)

    First Hi-Fi Setup.. DT880+Headroom Micro

    Nice. I recently made the plunge myself and got some DT990s. Couldn't afford an amp though so I am running them directly out of my sound card. I'm VERY impressed and hoping to get an amp this xmas so I can experience..what you're having. :P

    Biostar Tforce overclocking stories??

    heh, I was just scared for a minute that the magic BIOS you sent me may have been for the wrong board. But insanity won out over caution and I flashed anyway... up to 279*9 =2500mhz now :D

    Do you have a PERFECT 2005fpw/2405?

    My 2005FPW has no backlighting issue, but it does have 2 dead pixels, only one of which is noticeable. I am very satisfied though.

    Biostar Tforce overclocking stories??

    looks like the M9 can be distinguished by the lack of power/reset buttons and the red PCB. Also it is apparently not part of the biostar "T-series" which means it probably has a different bios with less features. mr-busta- red or blue pcb?
