I'm building a new system consisting of an i5-2500k with
ASRock Z68 Extreme 3 Gen 3 and GTX-560 or 6870 system. I will never use SLI or Crossfire. Just one optical drive, and one hard drive, looking for a no frills but solid psu. Around $50 or less from Newegg please. Thank you.
I'm building a new budget priced i5-2500k rig from newegg.
Is 4GB (2x2) sufficient for gaming and light multitasking ?
So 240 pin DDR-3 1333 speed is what I want ? I see 10600 and 10666. What about latency, is 9-9-9-24 good enough ?
Thanks in advance.
Edit: Does this look ok ...
Simple question, what's the best sub $200 video card out now ?
I'm building a new system for the first time in a long while. I'm looking for something to go with an i5-2500k.
I'm inclined to go with Nvidia since I haven't bought one of their cards since NV25. But ultimately I just want the...
I'm finally ordering parts for my new build. My last gaming system, which I haven't bothered to boot in over a year, was a single core opteron and X1900. :eek:
I've settled on an i5-2500k and GTX-560 or 570. I don't need SLI. I just want a basic board that has the chipset to allow...
I helped my brother build a new system last night. And I need a recommendation for a decent, budget PSU available from Fry's Electronics or Newegg. Hopefully $50 or less.
It's a budget build, we tried to reuse as much as possible. He bought a
Phenom X4 925 and ddr-3 memory, MSI 790GX...
The natal games will be light on graphics so I doubt the loss of the chip will matter. Is Killer Instinct still in the works ? Or what is Rare doing ? Still secret ?
So I guess Alan Wake now maybe timed exclusive to X360. Apparently the developers have recently changed their tune in a recent interview stating "we're not discussing the PC version at this time".
Some are speculating it might be delayed 6 months to a year after the console release due to a...
I had another thread about Killzone 2, but apparently the review was taken down from their website until the embargo ends. But the review score and the other comment is still available on metacritic.

Pete Hines says FO3 is around 50-80% the size of Oblivion. That actually sounds huge, if the content is more packed together. Also he says they're using 2-3x as many voice...

Coming to PS3 and Xbox 360 on April 29th. No PC release info.
Yesterday an embargo ended on new previews. Check the usual suspects.
This game is phenomenal.
So the new trailer is out today. Looks fantastic. I think the story line and characters will be even better than the last few games. I like the new theme song. I just hope they can maintain a steady 30fps on the consoles.
As expected the price drop has really helped sales. It will be interesting to see the hard numbers when the November NPD arrives.

The beta ran fine. The demo wouldn't load. I got an error. Updating to cat 7.9 fixed it.
Also I saw this hotfix. It improves performance on HD2900XT cards.
Is it possible to watch HD cable channels on a computer LCD monitor ?

So those new crysis videos got me nostalgic and I installed Far Cry again. ;)

Ok so I hooked up my PS3 to my SDTV and it looks ok but I want hi res.

An associate's A64 3500+ died.
It was a retail cpu purchased from Fry's about 2 months ago.
He's got the receipt but threw out the box.
Fry's told him outside of 15 days, he's got to deal w/ AMD directly.
This cpu was run stock and may have been the victim of an ECS motherboard...
