    Westinghouse 42" 1080P HDTV (TX-42F430S) - $1035

    Hmmm... this is a really good tv. Is it just me or did it lose a DVI input and gain a VGA input instead? Can anyone confirm full 1920x1080 operations in windows XP (watching videos, playing 1920x1080 games) using VGA on this tv? If everything checks out, this monster would be a true...

    I'm looking for your help in finding a modern 42"+ 1080p monitor/tv

    I've been digging around google for hours trying to find a good, cheap monitor that fulfills these requirements: 1920x1080 native resolution 8 ms pixel response time or below 1+ DVI input (omg this feature is so rare!! why is that??) OR 1+ VGA (if and only if it can support 1:1...

    Westy 42" Need Help with BF 2142 setup

    I wish I still had my Westy LV42W2 (stolen) so i can give you an exact answer. But based on my experience with that monitor, you have to play around with switching video modes using your remote control until you get a signal. Also keep in mind that BF 2142 cannot do widescreen resolutions...

    PS3 "in game" movie

    How come I keep hearing developers hating to code games for the PS3 ? That could be why it's so hard to find any actual game footages for any games on this console.. people are probably on strike or something.

    Bored with WoW, should I try EQII ?

    I'd be playing EQ2 right now if it wasn't for: 1.) Small raid sizes (20 ish is average raid. Bigger raid size is better experience) 2.) Load screens everywhere. 3.) Still too few solo content, considering you need to solo a lot nowadays with so few people. 4.) Crappy combat system. (slow...

    WOW, 1g ram or 2g?

    The amount of RAM you need is actually not related to the lag problem in Ironforge / Orgrimmar. You're referring to the 30+ seconds of freeze where your computer takes a dump to try to load all the character data in those cities' hot spots right? If so, that lag is caused from the huge chunk...

    Will nvidia EVER fix the shimmering problem?

    nVNews posted a temporary fix to the flickering problem. Yes, I own a Radeon 9800 Pro and 6800 GT OC on two rigs. I play World of Warcraft and do notice 6800 GT flickering like heck, while the Radeon yields no flicker. As soon as I...

    PC3500 is implied that you overclock. Or else you would have to "underclock" the RAM.

    So who actually enjoyed Doom3?

    I'm too scared to play D3 for long periods of time. =P It would be more enjoyable if I won't get a heartattack, don't take that as me wanting to reduce the terror factor, keep that as-is. Also, all FPS games seems to make me nauscious for some reason.

    Help setting up Dual Channel...with my new 512 stick

    1.) You won't get any form of noticeable performance increase in dual channel with an Athlon XP system. 2.) Use slots 0 + (1 or 2). Slot 0 is important for some reason beyond me, in Athlon systems. It's why it's always colored different.

    Artifacts with BFG 6800 Ultra

    My first inclination is update your chipset drivers too. You'd need to remove Forceware first, install the chipset's AGP drivers, then install ForceWare. If that doesn't work, check your temperator using the Temperature Settings option in the nVidia Control Panel during a run using the Real...

    Geforce 6800 Ultra & Antialiasing problem

    Geforce 6800 Ultra & Antialiasing problem

    Which ForceWare version are you using? What's your motherboard brand, and manufacturer? Check your BIOS to make sure default graphics port is AGP, not PCI.

    Worth upgrading 2500+ to 3200+?

    Is his CPU even capable of OCing to a 3200+? Is every 2500+ XP chip ever made, able to OC to a 3200+ XP? I don't think so. If he can't OC that high, he cant.

    A64 3400 - Newcastle or Clawhammer?

    When you buy a CPU, the amount of OC that's possible on your chip is going to be random. It's best to get the chip that performs "best" for your initial stock settings. With a Clawhammer, you get the advantage of 1Mb L2 cache but DISadvantage of being 200mhz behind. With Newcastle, you...

    Abit KV8 and overclocking SATA woes

    Lack of an AGP/PCI lock will destroy your RAID / SATA drives that's for sure. If you OC past 220mhz I wouldn't count on your data being there the next morning. What's amazing to me though is how you managed 2.3ghz on your IDE hard drive for so long without having any data corruption.

    Athlon 64 3200+, Clawhammer vs Newcastle, which one faster?

    Does anyone know or can point me to a location where they did a side by side review of the Clawhammer vs Newcastle cores? It's basically a comparison between 200mhz or an addition 512kb, which one gains the most benefits. EDIT: Ignore this thread. A similar thread already exists.

    Recommendations for an Asus K8V?

    I notice a difference between DDR400 and DDR266 ram. In Emperor: Battle for Dune you scroll much slower with the lower speed RAM. EDIT: For everything else, I don't notice at all! Though benchmarks shows a dramatic drop in system performance scores across the board.

    Setting the Front Side Bus on my MB

    That's the problem with advertising, they always show you the bigger number. Motherboards that say 266mhz FSB means its net FSB is 266mhz, which is 133mhz core. In overclocking, you mess around with the core FSB which in turn changes the net FSB. EDIT: Athlon XP 3200+ are 400mhz net FSB...

    pc2100 and Xp2800, thats a no go?

    Hey that's the same RAM I have =) Currently using it in my DDR400 system to test its max OC. It works just fine if I change my CPU:RAM ratio to DDR266 settings. Afterwards I overclock the system to see how far the RAM can go.
