    Upgrade from 6800GT in AGP format?

    Thanks for all the suggestions guys, I forwarded them along - I think he ended up going with the 7600gt temporarily until he does a full system overhaul. Much appreciated!

    Upgrade from 6800GT in AGP format?

    A friend of mine recently had a 6800GT die on him and was wondering what the best bang/buck would be while keeping an AGP format. I haven't kept up on what cards are the 'gem' of the site in the economy realm, so I thought you guys could give me some input? Thanks!

    E228WFP Replacement?

    Well... I just picked up a Dell E228WFP to put on an ergotron arm and use next to my 37" westinghouse, but now that I've got it running, the colors are way off (even after adjustment using the monitor settings and nVidia's desktop color control panel) and it looks super dull compared to my...

    37in westinghouse owners wanna start a club?

    I'll have to take some glamour shots of my 37w3 in action - ive had it for a couple months now and it's great! It's definitely different using something so large, it's like I have a new poster on my wall every time I change the background :cool:

    Connecting PC to HDTV

    Score. Too bad his 2001fp is currently using his only dvi output, I guess he'll have to live with it connected via vga instead if he wants to use his tv as a secondary.

    Ultramon won't detect 2nd monitor

    I dont know about that though - maybe there would be an issue if you're cloning the displays? You should be running in dual-view mode (or whatever its called) in which case each monitor is displaying its own set of applications. I know when I drag a video thats currently playing over to my...

    Ultramon won't detect 2nd monitor

    I had to plug in my second monitor, turn it on then reboot. After a reboot both should show up in the display settings. Also if you have something plugged in via an s-video cable in the same card the secondary screen may not show up since I think most cards will only support up to 2 displays...

    20% clearance tvs at Best Buy

    I'm thinking about going with the 37w1 though I was originally going to wait for the w3. It'll probably be like 1700....so is it worth the wait and about $500+ for the new version? $1200 just seems like a good deal. EDIT: BAM! they have a display model for $1350... so with 20% thats 1080...

    Ive got that same problem with my G520P also - I'm about to jump on the LCD bandwagon in a week or two here though, so I didnt investigate it. Going to subscribe, hopefully you figure it out for me :)

    Nice deal - that'll be great for my dad whos running on a P3 800 with 256MB ram and a crappy 17" CRT. Early father's day present I guess :D

    Component IN on Sceptre 20.1" ?

    Looking for something like THIS? EDIT: actually that may just be for output from a videocard, but thats essentially what you want correct - component to dvi converter - so you can go component from your xbox to dvi in on the lcd?

    Westinghouse LVM-37W3 on my desk.

    Yes its essentially the updated version of the 37w1. I think common carriers like bestbuy should be getting them in soon (if they havent already).

    Clock speed versus memory throttling tradeoff?

    I'm just curious what will yield higher performance overall: lower clock speed with memory running 1:1, or higher clock speed with a memory divider? Example scenario being: 165 Opterpwn at 9x275 @ 2.48Ghz with a 1:1 memory timing or 9x310 but knock the memory divider back to 166 so it runs...

    Opteron 148 now and DualCore later?

    Oh Im sure it could be faster/snappier when I have a bunch of apps running - but the point was that its very rarely that I feel held up waiting for my processor to do its job. I dont doubt it at all that ive built a tolerance around it, but I would hardly call it slow *shrug*. Its merely a...

    Opteron 148 now and DualCore later?

    I definitely do my fair share of gaming and non-gaming activities - but as it is I rarely notice any issues multitasking with my 2.4Ghz mobile barton. I understand the principle behind the dual cores, but I guess I still dont see the benefit. I'm not trying to make someone pressure me into...

    Opteron 148 now and DualCore later?

    So ive read through the entire dual core gaming fix guide and it seems like its going to be a real annoyance running multiple cores - just the fact that im going to need to worry about setting processor affinities manually for applications all the time and enabling/disabling the amd fix...

    Monitor support for Scaling vs L/R Letterbox

    Ive been searching for a simple answer to this but I must not be looking in the right places. I'm just curious how a widescreen monitor will handle 4:3 aspect ratio content (mainly the acer al2030wa). Will the source content only be stretched to 16:10 or will I have to ability to view it with...

    I'm looking to replace my sony cpd-g520p with a 2405fpw - are there any deals out I should know about? Also, im getting used to dual monitors, would it be better to skip the widescreen and just go with 2 21"'s instead? meh, thanks in advance for the input

    Direct printing to a shared printer?

    Direct printing to a shared printer?

    DragonNOA1: in order to use the printer on the print-server, what do you have to do? as long as there is no additional software I need to install on the client computers then that might be good - the problem is that it looks/sounds almost identical to the print-server I just got that doesnt...

    Direct printing to a shared printer?

    Software RAID 1 on 2003 Server

    Sony CPD-G520P Brightness Problem

    So I bought this monitor maybe a year and a half ago, and now for whatever reason the picture looks like I have the brightness cranked up about 40 more than necessary. Right now with brightness set to 0 everything is washed out and the black appears very green looking (obviously). Has anyone...

    Logitech Wireless XBOX Controllers?

    I did some extensive looking around and I guess the precision is the updated version - only runs on 2 AA's, has repositioned buttons, has an on/off switch for the vibration feature, and is slightly smaller. Thanks for the recc, I think ill be picking up a couple of these!
