    GTX460s in SLI w/ triple monitors

    To run 5040x1050 on 3 monitors with SLI'd 460s, do you need cards with 2gigs of ram? Will 1 gig cards do the job? I haven't payed a lot of attention to triple monitor OR SLI stuff as it's never been anything I would want/need. I have a friend who is upgrading his system now for MS Flight Sim...

    FCC Says New Wireless Spectrum is Worth $120 Billion

    Best drivers for GTX275?

    As often happens when Nvidia comes out with a new generation of video cards, I've been hearing the newest drivers have problems with older hardware (fan control for example). I was wondering which drivers to go to (currently 195.62s). I was also wondering if NVIDIA is EVER going to get "Do Not...

    So whats the verdict now for Hyperthreading with core i7 in Windows 7 and gaming?

    This would answer the exact question I was going to ask except that at those video settings, aren't you possibly GPU limited? Could you try that same test at a lower resolution with AA turned off? I'm on the fence between an i5-750 and an i7-860 for a new system that will primarily be a gaming...

    "Do not scale" setting in win7

    My monitor is 1900x1080 but I play a couple games at a lower resolution. In WinXP I set it to "Do not scale" and lived with the black bars. In Win7 64-bit I set it to "do not scale" and when I click yes it just goes back to "Use my display's built in scaling". I'm using the 195,62 drivers, it...

    An End To Unencrypted Digital Cable TV and the HTPC?

    E8400 stock cooler good for.....

    HELP! It was running just fine so I loaded up TF2 and it locked up while loading the map. Rebooted and it will not go into the bios, just keeps restarting before the bios screen comes up. I'm getting the error code for wrong cpu voltage as this happens. Cleared the CMOS, same result. Put my...

    E8400 stock cooler good for.....

    OK, at 9x400 3.6ghz 1.27v it's running 58C/57C on P95 smalFFT tests and 55C/54C on blend. Ambient temp is 23C/74F. Odd thing, at idle there is a 6C temp difference between the 2 cores but at load it's 2C. It's idling right now at 37C/31C. I bumped the voltage a hair because of the ip35 pro's...

    E8400 stock cooler good for.....

    how much overclock? I'm sitting on 54C/53C running Prime95 right now at stock 3ghz. What's typically a good overclock with the stock cooler and what temps are OK at load? I've just upgraded from an e4400 to the e8400 and had to use the stock cooler for now. CPU: E8400 E0 stepping 1.25v stock...

    I need upgrade path advice

    Yes, I plan to also get a Q9550 and overclock it to go along with the GTX275. It's going to end up about $100 more than I had wanted to spend, but like you said it'll last a couple of years before I need to upgrade. Once again I appreciate everyone's input.

    I need upgrade path advice

    Just wanted to reply one more time. I picked up a GTX275 yesterday. If I hadn't gotten a pretty good deal on this card, I was going to get a 260 simply because I wanted to stay Nvidia this time around. I appreciate all the help and discussion.

    I need upgrade path advice

    I've been debating between the XFX 4870 and 4890 ($149 and $199 respectively) and am leaning towards a simple GPU upgrade. I've been wondering though, if an overclocked e8400 would permit me to hold off on a full upgrade for another 18-24 months. So far, very few games show an improvement with...

    driver recomendations?

    I'm switching from my 8800GTS320 to an 8800GT (putting the old card in a different machine) and I'm currently running 169.09 drivers. Do I NEED to go to a newer driver for the 8800GT 512? What driver do you guys recommend? I generally only update video drivers when required by new games or hardware.

    8800GT over 9600GT?

    I just picked up a PNY 8800GT 512 at BBuy for $149. seemed like too good a deal to pass up. Is there a consensus on aftermarket coolers for these things? I'd like something that won't be as loud as the stock fan at 100%

    Anyone have anything bad to say about Abit IP35 Pro?

    Is the beta bios required to get the wolfdale to work? What version/where did you get it?

    EVGA vs BFG

    Actually the 8800GTS (G80) cards have a 320-bit memory bus, not 128. That's why the 640meg version can handle higher AA and resolutions than an 8800GT if the core is overclocked to GT speeds.
