I figured I may not be the only person with a 1 kilowatt proXstream PSU. For those unaware, the thing is as loud as a bag of hammers in a clothes dryer.
Since I don't mind invalidating my warranty, I figured I'd share with everyone yay!
Here we have my handy 2 year old assistant eying...
Just ordered this PSU:
Basically I'm running (2) 8800 GTXs several hard drives, and the rest is in my sig.
Opinions? (Ordered it for $129 after rebate.)
This is an ugly case.
I just wanted to throw that out there. It's fugly. My opinion yes, but I just showed it to my co-workers and they laughed at it. The Cherry Red finish is the only thing it's got going for it.
Yet the review they gave was...
Anyone else try the NIC Teaming function? Every time I give it a try I get a bluescreen error and have to force a reboot.
The error is DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
Googled for it and frankly I'm still a bit stumped.
I'm wondering if there are any benchmarks or comparisons that go along these lines.
I currently have (2) x1900s in crossfire, but I'm willing to consider moving to an 8800 IF it's a drastic improvement.
(Please leave the illogical OMGNVIDIASAVEDMYBABY nonsense out.)
Basically, I need to pull together short clips from old classic films, add background music, and have it play as a loop.
It's part of a charity benefit silent auction.
I also need the functionality to add a short text bit giving credit to the films I take the short clips from.
Since there are a number of fixes for different applications for Vista, how about using this as a thread to compile what we come across?
Problem: Playing CounterStrike Source with X1900XT video card. PLayer can see through walls rendering the game unplayable (Map: Office.)
Fix: Turn off...
Seems that I cannot uninstall the google toolbar.
I goto Extensions -> uninstall and it says that "of course we'll uninstall it when you restart firefox!" I restart and it reinstalls the toolbar. EVERY time.
It may seem like a minor inconvenience, but I never wanted the toolbar in the...
Other than the X2 Accelero, which I don't want, are there any other after market coolers for the X1900 that people would recommend? I'm looking for something that will draw the air out of the case.
My stock cooler is only loud when temps rise. But I was wondering if there's something more...
Recently, I jumped on the BB deal with the WD SE 320 gig HDs for 99 bucks (SATA 150.) I've tried installing it and on boot the computer lists the drives, then hangs. I'm sure it works, as I tried removing 2 of the 3 drives already in place, and then it'd post. But with all 4 in...
Onsale from $129 down to $79, $30 rebate.
YMMV on this part:
I bought the last one in the South Philly store (display model.) Manager sold it for $59, and the rebate was for...
Have to scroll down a bit, or search their site for Sku 448332. 99 - 70 rebate.
It's mildly hot, or just above warm.
I know this is going to sound like a supernoob question, but I recently ordered and received an X1900 Crossfire from ZZF and it didn't come with the Dual DVI dongle.
Now, without the dongle, I'm pretty much stuck using one monitor, as this is a master card and the funky crossfire connector...
I have two cards on their way to my doorstep right now:
ATI Radeon X1900 CrossFire Edition PCI Express 512MB DDR3
Asus Extreme AX1800XT/2DHTV Radeon X1800 XT PCI Express 512MB DDR3
(Background story: I ordered the X1800XT as part of a very large order. Called to cancel THAT PART...
Is there any way to install punkbuster AFTER having quake already installed? It's going to be a royal pain in the ass to uninstall and reinstall it.
(Well not royal, but I REALLY don't want to play the 4 disc mambo again.)
Astar DVX-6881 Certified DivX DVD player with Progressive Scan
For those of you that haven't converted those hours of torrent files to DVD format!
Their website is painful to use, but it's the same guys that had the $6 cases a while back.
I figured I'd post this since so many people are jumping on all the recent HD deals.
Now, I just received mine in the mail yesterday, and ONE strip was a dead strip, so I have 2 gigs of mixed ram in there at the moment, but I'm RMAing it today.
Good ram if you want 2 gigs of cheap stuff.
For some reason, I can no longer access any "Properties." Such as right clicking the My Computer, right clicking the desktop to access display properties, hardware manager, etc.
Only hardware change has been a CPU switch.
Right now I have 1 gig of *ok* DDR in my system, but I'm wondering if there will be ANY gain if I went to 1.5 gigs.
Primarily, I game and do webwork from home, and occasionally move large files around.
So, would there be a gain? A slowdown? Will the skies open up and rain cats?
I just got my grubby little mitts on an MSI x800 pro. I'm wondering what stock cooling overclocking people are getting, and if you have something like an Arctic Silencer 4, what numbers you're getting with those.
(Just ordered one.)
I'm trying to make a decision on what path to take for my next upgrade.
I primarily use the machine for gaming, and occasionally webwork.

First time ATi owner here (yes yes I've been using NVidia cards for YEARS.)
Question about the softmod from a 9800 pro 128 to a GL x2.
What are the advantages to doing so? Is it worth it?
Thanks in advance!
I'm wondering if anyone's ever replaced their laptop CPU themselves.
I have a HP ze4115 and I'm interested in replacing the CPU.
That's the version I have. XP1500+. It looks as...
