    RTX 2080 Ti FE to RTX 3090 FE - My Exp (Some Benches and $$$ Numbers)

    Someone bought the 2080 for more than a 3080?! Not really understanding that one but to each his own. I guess cause it's a FE? BTW, good find on the 3090!

    Am I asking too much for my socket 939 motherboards and such?

    Im going to have to start another thread! I’m so stoked right now! I just found in my attic an almost complete Dell 440BX system sealed in a box! It has to have been sealed up there for almost 20 years! I have to find a way to get this thing up and running.! However, 4 wires are cut off the PSU.

    Am I asking too much for my socket 939 motherboards and such?

    Truth! I have an itch to play an old game called Chaos Gate that will only play on that old BX system. The only thing I don't have is an old PSU to power it up. I do have an old PSU from a Dell P4 system I still have running but the question is can I run my ATI X800XT PE on it.

    That's exactly what it is! Thanks for the heads up! IIRC it’s either a 1.2 or 1.4 GHz cpu

    Titan A anyone?

    You guys are really jumping the gun. I'm just looking forward to seeing what the 3090 can actually do.

    Am I asking too much for my socket 939 motherboards and such?

    Took the FX-53 off the market since I'm going to test them both after repair. I do have another 939 cpu somewhere. Was looking for an FX-60 but they're a tough find.

    Speaking of old, besides all the 939 stuff, can any of you ID this Intel motherboard? lol

    I took the K8NS off the market but sold the XP as is. Since I have 2 of the K8 939's I will make an attempt to repair them both and run them to see if it was successful.

    Sold everything for a good deal minus the cpu. Got some copper heatsinks from that era along with more fans than I ever needed.

    Am I asking too much for my socket 939 motherboards and such?

    I dunno. Someone just offered me $65 for the K8NSNXP and I just posted that one yesterday and the RAM is already spoken for which was posted a few hours ago! Wow. Someone wants $200 for this DFI LANPARTY! Wish DFI was still around! Some of the motherboards being sold look kinda sketchy. I guess...

    Am I asking too much for my socket 939 motherboards and such?

    Figured it was time to let go of some great socket 939 hardware. Both rigs were still running great before I retired them. The question is, am I asking too much? Most of the old stuff is being sold outside the US. The DDR1 RAM I'm practically giving away. Thoughts...

    MSI Bullies Small YouTuber To Pull Bad Review

    Disappointed in MSI. I've used quite a few of their mobo's cause I like their BIOS. They could have really upped their game by publicly responding to their product thanking him and would look into improving their product. Ass kissing of that nature is massive bonus points in a company IMO.

    New house intranet wiring

    I hard wired most of my house with cat 5e years ago. When I played World of Tanks I would get pings in the single digits anywhere where it was wired. Due to virtual classrooms now I had to even use an old Linksys 10/100 switch from the early 2000's and wire another room. Depending on who your...

    Getting an old BEFSR41 Lynksys router to work

    Already have wifi with the Verizon modem. Problem was when my wife was using Bluetooth to play her music it seemed to be interfering with my sons online classes using Zoom. Plus the router with wifi isn't ideally located with regards to my sons room. We did a wifi speed test in the room and got...

    Getting an old BEFSR41 Lynksys router to work

    Well I got the old Linksys router working! This whole time I had it wired wrong! I changed the IP address, disabled DHCP, I plugged it in LAN to LAN (LAN to WAN was wrong to do!) and BOOM! 60 Mbps download/ 55 Mbps upload!! Not too bad for an outdated switch!

    Getting an old BEFSR41 Lynksys router to work

    The Verizon router is coax and downstairs permanently. It has to be the lead router. Plus I have two other pc's hardwired to it downstairs. I could reverse it but I'd rather not have the lead router in a bedroom. On that note the Netgear switch is on it's way and will be here over the weekend...

    Getting an old BEFSR41 Lynksys router to work

    The Verizon modem is downstairs on the first floor. I ran an ethernet cable from that point around the outside of the house into one bedroom upstairs on the 2nd floor for a pc. Now I want to split that point into another bedroom on the 2nd floor next to it for my son. That's where the old...

    Getting an old BEFSR41 Lynksys router to work

    The Verizon router is fine 54/58 download/upload speeds via wire. I'm using Cat 5e ethernet cable throughout the house. And this was done back in 2004.

    Getting an old BEFSR41 Lynksys router to work

    Do I have to have the Linksys router WAN plugged into my Verizon modem WAN? Or can I use internet port 3 to the Linksys WAN?

    Getting an old BEFSR41 Lynksys router to work

    Don't know what I'm missing but can't get internet access with this old router. All the lights are on. I can access the router. The DHCP Active IP table sees both computers. The Verizon FiOS router ethernet cable is plugged into the Linksys WAN. What am I missing?

    Recommend router for wireless TV/Xbox/laptops

    Yeah I know wired is the best but it's not possible for everything at this point. That being said, Xbox is about 50ft away in a bedroom, the other Xbox is 30. the TV is about 30. No straight lines of site of course. Want to spend less than $200. It's a B-day present for my kid's house. Have no...

    Gonna pull my old rig apart & e-apply the thermal paste for my old socket 775 system before I install Windows 10 from Vista. CPU Q9650, GPU, & motherboard heat pipe for a GIGABYTE GA-X38T-DQ6. Best paste for all 3? AS5? Thanks.

    How do I interpret BSOD in Vista

    Thanks for the tip. I'm just concerned that it's a motherboard chipset issue. If it comes down to that I might as well just build a new rig. But if it just comes down to a driver issue then I might as well just go the Windows 10/SSD route and be done with it.
