    AV40 Best Value at Moment?

    I had a few questions that are probably rehashing earlier questions. However, I searched and browsed 5 pages to try to find the answer and did not really find an adequate answer. I currently have an Audigy 4 soundcard for my computer. I used to have a set of z5500s but gave them away when I...

    VID Question

    Hey Everyone, I recently got my Q6700. I checked its VID using CoreTemp. It is listed as 1.3250v, which I was reasonably disappointed about. With CPU voltage set to Auto in the bios of my Asus P5Q Pro, voltage registered as 1.28v in CPU-z. When I set the voltage in the bios to 1.3v, it...

    Hey Guys, I wanted to get your input. I recently picked up the VisionTek HD 4870 from Frys. It was the $210 (after MIR before tax) price. It was too good to pass up. I did however have a question. After tax, the cost of the card was $230. I can get the EVGA GTX 260 SSC for the same price...

    Best Mobo For Q6600

    Hello everyone, I have settled on a Q6600 as a processor for the new machine I am building. It is intended to serve as a gaming/programming rig for the next 2 years (at which point Nehalem should be firmly in budget range).
