I have recently decided that I want to try to save some money by, instead of buying a new computer as a HTPC, simply use my laptop, a Lenovo T400.
The T400 has a VGA out, and of course a headphone jack.
The TV I am trying to use is a standard definition TV with an input that...
This. I honestly wonder how many of these people have ACTUALLY had problems, or if its just one person who has an issue, then someone posts about how someone had an issue, and then someone posts about those two people...And so on. Perhaps people just mess stuff up through idiocy?
My girlfriend's computer is running the specified hardware, and it is starting to lag behind. I am wondering what exactly I should be going for here. I am guessing I will need to buy a new CPU cooler, but not sure what is the best bang for buck. I am looking to increase speed...
I am trying to make a budget PC that is capable of running 720p video out to my TV which is connected via S-Video.
I am considering either AMD or Intel, no real preference either way. The processors in question are:
AMD Athlon II X2 240 Regor 2.8GHz -...
Hey, all. As of right now, I am using a Dell 2407WFP AO3. In Windows 7 and Windows Vista, I am unable to play Warcraft 3 @ 1280x1024 with scaling disabled. Whenever I click "apply" for disabling scaling, it will simply default back to allowing my monitor to handle that. However, when I go...
I think its funny that so many people are going to argue which is going to be better, despite the fact that we have ZERO reason to think either way or the other.
No matter what any of us say, it is pure speculation. Yet many of you will get your e-peens bent out of shape when someone says...
Keep in mind that there are some people who wish to having a gaming pc, yet need to travel a lot. A gaming notebook fits those needs well :)
I know some people who use a netbook for mobility, and a gaming laptop for travel.
Everyone saying Newegg's HD packaging is fine...It depends. Some people (such as myself) have gotten HDs packaged HORRIBLY. Others get HDs wrapped great. Its hit or miss.
But not every company is hit or miss. Take ZipZoomFly for example. 100% always great packaging. Not everyone wants...
Can anyone explain to me what makes it impossible for US/Euro phones to have these sorts of capabilities? It seems like there are features that Japanese phones have had for a long time that USA/Euro phones haven't even SEEN yet...O_o
I don't see why Japan doesn't sell this stuff in the USA...
Interesting. When I looked at their website here: http://products.amd.com/en-us/DesktopCPUDetail.aspx?id=522
It says "Voltages 0.850-1.425V ". Does that mean that 1.425V is the max? I was confused when I first saw this, because I see most sites saying that go well into 1.5V with overclocks.
I finally got my X3 720 today, and I am anxious to OC. I have the big ole fatty Xigamatek cooler.
As of right now, I have the bus at 200, stock.
The multiplier is at 17.5
The voltage is at 1.400
Should my voltage go any higher? I want to make sure that this OC...
So, today I decided to upgrade my Phenom 9750 to a X3 720 black edition.
At around 11AM, I order. I check back at 1PM, and its already shipped.
I tell you, they gotta be doing something shady and or possess magical powers O_o
My understanding was that the i7 gets a bit too hot and really doesn't OC that high. Maybe 3.8, but not 4.0, right?
Also, the 9550 doesn't get 4.0 consistently. There have been quite a few who have, but also quite a few who haven't. A 100% reliable 9550 OC is more like 3.7. For 4.0, I'd...
Hey, everyone. Got a bit of a hard to decide on choice on my hands.
My current system configuration is:
Phenom 9750 @ 2.6 ghz (won't go any higher :( )
2x2GB DDR 800
XFX ATI 4870 512MB.
Now, obviously my Phenom is quite the bottleneck in a lot...
Sorry to confuse, it is a 9950 Black Edition. I got it free from a friend.
First of all, thanks everyone for the replies. I really appreciate it.
Second, I took your guy's advice and instead of messing with the bus, I increased the multiplier. I raised it up to 13x. But I ended up with...
Hey, everyone. I recently made the switch to a quad-core. I have a 9750. I also got a nice beefy cooler on it (The Xigmatek), but I am having trouble getting a good OC.
As of right now, all I have tried is to up the bus. I got a slight overclock, but only got it to about 225. I am using...
Would anyone recommend this board? I am looking to do a new build, but I typically like to stick to Asus. I am always willing to pay the extra dollar for better reliability, but this is a damn good deal.
