    Wallpapers for 21:9 screens - 3440x1440 goodness!

    So a very specific request: Can anyone get a 3440x1440 HD wallpaper of a 2016 C7 Corvette ZO6 preferably in red? I just got to drive one for a day, after renting it in Las Vegas, and I must say I'm inspired to own one. Just need a nice shot for the desktop background to stay inspired, and...

    GPU Benchmarking - Crysis 1280x1024 (All High)

    Yes, it was with the Renamed .exe. Remember this was IN GAME and I used FRAPS to record. Very interesting/crappy about going up to 4GB or RAM. I'm gonna try taking two sticks out of my box. I have to get to my band practice right now, but when I get back, I'll check it out and let you know...

    GPU Benchmarking - Crysis 1280x1024 (All High)

    Well... Damn... I just feel bad now, maybe I shouldn't have pointed it out? lol. Anyway, at least we're still getting good Average FPS. I actually have my Resolution set to 1680x1050 all effects on High, and I get around 32 FPS Average in game. -V

    GPU Benchmarking - Crysis 1280x1024 (All High)

    Hey, I didn't mean to cause offense to anyone. I'm running a GTX here, and I could care less about the subject of Nvidia "cheating" or not. I know like I said before, it's more about quality for me then the few extra FPS. If you notice in most of my post I quoted, "Bug / Cheat", what ever...

    GPU Benchmarking - Crysis 1280x1024 (All High)

    Hmmm... Sucks about the XP thing, because I'm definitely on to Vista for good. I'm hooked. As for the driver thing... Nvidia seems to have "cheated" when it comes to the water reflections on the new drivers. The best way to see what I'm talking about is if you look at the water...

    Ok, so I've finally got time to sit back and write this all out. Sorry it took so long, I got back to my office, and all hell broke loose on me.... First off, it appears there are many, many variables to consider here when running this bench mark across the various rigs here. Just a few...

    I think you're totally right Tissue. But I found something really interesting just now, sadly I have to get into my office so I don't have time to post about it. I will however post up from my office, so give me about an hour, and I should be able to shed some light on this. -V

    GPU Benchmarking - Crysis 1280x1024 (All High)

    I'll take your advise, I'm gonna try OC'ing a lil and see what it gets me. I have to admit, I was really surprised the drivers alone netted me 7-8 FPS. I know there is a bug with the reflections, so I renamed the exe. Question, what should I try overclocking to? I came from a ATI 1950PRO...

    passive + actively cooled rad?

    Good point, and I agree. Anyway, the point of my post was to answer the original question if one of the rad's "could" be passive. From my experience the answer is yes. I have plenty of cooling, with room to OC more if I get the desire. It would probably be good to point out, I keep my...

    The setup you’re asking about is EXACTLY what I'm running now in my new build. http://www.hardforum.com/showthread.php?t=1202084 You can see my current system specs, and temps in my sig. Keep in mind I do have an Antec 900 case, and the "Passive" rad is on top of a 200mm fan at full...

    Calling Help From Any ASUS Blitz Formula Owners!!

    I was actually thinking about that at the time of my posting... I'm going to setup dual boot tomorrow, chances are you're right, I just really hope it can work 100% on vista soon, as that is the only draw back I could find. I don't know why a lot of people won't take the plunge, but I for...

    Calling Help From Any ASUS Blitz Formula Owners!!

    I finally got my new system built last weekend, (See Sig For Details), but I'm having one problem I can't seem to figure out... Is anyone having trouble with 5.1 surround in games? Some games it works, and some it doesn't for me. It's a bit picky in windows as well, I have to have the...

    Ok already release info on HIGH END cards due this year

    Ummm... Dude.... I think something's wrong with yer thing'a'ma'jigger... My E-penis easily hit 14 from 6 after I installed my GTX, then got another 0.000004 after overclocking... You might wanna use the "Step-Up Program" soon! :D:D:D -V

    Question on evga 8800gtx card

    Amen! I did the same and no regrets. If a new high end, (1GB 1 TFLOP), comes out within 90 days GREAT, I'll step up. If not, I still have one Kick Ass card that won't be outdated for some time. -V

    O.K.... Who's With Me??

    That's the only piece of the system I've yet to buy... The GFX. I'm probably going to wait till the end of Oct. / Early Nov. to buy, so I can get in on the setup from EVGA just in case. -V

    O.K.... Who's With Me??

    Well, from my understanding, the BIOS is already pretty strong. Hopefully Strong enough not to need a revision. I'm sure they will still have support for it, it wasn't that limited of production. -V

    O.K.... Who's With Me??

    Ijust got my ASUS Blitz Formula last Thursday, so I'm UBER excited and UBER pissed, because I can't quite set up the rig yet. I just ordered some of the final components, but still need to decide when to get my GFX Card. So my question is, who now owns, "The now Rare", Blitz Formula with me...

    GA-P35-DQ6 or Asus Blitz Formula

    I did order the Blitz Formula; it should be here sometime next week. I was going to go with the P5K-Deluxe, but was also thinking about the P35-DQ6. I would recommend you're already so close, you might want to sit tight and see if the X38's actually release later this month. -V

    GA-P35-DQ6 or Asus Blitz Formula

    The fusion cooling was a main point for me as well, and te fact that the 2 reviews I saw for it were outstanding... I think I'll keep the order, the rig I'm building should last me 3-4 years at least. -V

    GA-P35-DQ6 or Asus Blitz Formula

    Well crap... I just spent 260.00 on the formula, but now I'm debating if I should cancel the order and try to get a comparable X38. Then again I really don't want to spend over 300.00 for a board... -V

    What's the risk of lapping

    Sounds like what you say to be true, just using my common sense... So here's a question... What would you suggest for me, the average OC enthusiast, to do in order to get a true flat surface on my Q6600?? -V

    Anyone thinking about the Blitz Formula?

    I'm currently building my new rig, so far I've got: Q6600 G0 (4x1GB) Crucial Ballisitx PC8500 1066MHz Next thing in line is the MOBO, I just rebuilt my current Water loop, and it will be used in the new rig cooling CPU & GPU. I've been settled on the ASUS P5K Deluxe for a while now...

    Q6600 stepping

    I'm not quite sure what you're telling me? I'm not worried about how soon it gets here, in fact the only piece I have to my new rig thus far is the memory, (4x1GB Ballistix 1066DDR2). So, I can wait till August, and its a specific pre-order for the G0 from TankGuys. -V
