    What would be a good card for me?

    I'm looking for a decent AGP card somewhere around ~$50. I don't need it to play Oblivion with maximized settings @ 60 FPS, but being able to run Oblivion, or use Aero effects, or even allow me to run Halo 2 would be a big improvement over my MX440. Thanks.

    Patriot LLK vs ELK?

    I was wondering if anyone knows the performance difference between Patriot's LLK modules and their ELK modules (PDC22G6400ELK and PDC22G6400LLK to be specific). I'd think that the LLK (low latency) ones would be better for overclocking and the ELK (eased latency) modules would bet better for...

    DDR2 2GB PC2-6400 800MHz Dual Channel Patriot PDC22G6400ELK In case you didn't see it, it was on sale for $130 at Fry's (Hot Deals). I was wondering if anyone knew more specifics about this model... Newegg lists it as having 5-5-5-12 timings @ ddr2-800 w/ 2.0v, but the manufacturer's...

    7900 GS or 7800 GT?

    I have the opportunity to acquire one of these cards (I get to pick which), and I am faced with a conundrum. Which one should I pick? Logical order would state a 7900 would surpass the abilities of a 7800, but the same could be said about a GT surpassing a GS. Anyone got any ideas...

    Creating a Air-Cooled setup w/ ~$100...ideas?

    My goal is to get as close to water cooled temps as possible, for under/around $100 (including cooling CPU, GPU, N/B, and RAM). Why? I believe a proper AC system cheaper than a more expensive WC setup and nearly/just as effective. System will be a e6400 (OC'ed, of course) with 2GB pc6400...
