    Trouble with 4 WD 640gb drives, please please help.

    I just upgraded my RAID5 from a rocketraid 1640 and 3 Seagate 400gb drives to 4 WD (blue) 640gb drives on a rocketraid 1740. This is my problem. One of the drives is only seen as SATA 150. 3 are seen as SATA II like they should be, but one will not get mounted as SATA II no matter what I do...

    Need to know about 3850 and 3650 AGP, been out of the loop.

    Basically, I have searched and come up with various reports saying that ATI finally supports the cards, and some reports saying that special drivers are still required. I want to end all this confusion with a straight up question to the experts. I have been out of the loop for a while in the...

    AGP madness, 7600gt/gs, 7800gs questions.

    I want to know if the 7600gs uses the same g73 as the gt... as in no disabled pipelines. I am considering a new card for an AGP system. I know the 7800gs and the 7600gt run neck and neck... however, if the 7600gs is not crippled (as in only clockspeed lowered) it would also be attractive. Are...

    What AMD stock HSF version is the best?

    Ok... This is between the two common variations of AMD heatpipe stock coolers. This one? ----- Or this one? I know people say the newer design is better, but I know that some newer AMD CPUs are being shipped with the older design... so I am curious what you guys think?

    To all owners of x1950pro AGP?!

    Do any of you guys run your card with a CRT monitor? I bought the visiontek card a couple weeks ago and had to return it because of the horrible ghosting/smearing/reflecting I got on my 21" NEC CRT. Now, I have since heard that some cards have a problem with that particular monitor... and I...

    7600GT AGP questions!

    Ok, one of the things that has always bothered me about the 7800GS is the fact that there are no aftermarket cooling options that fit the card's non-standard HS mounting. I want to know if, on the 7600GT, does it support standard aftermarket mounting? Is this card more like the 6600GT, in...

    7800gs: aftermarket cooling options?
