I seriously cant make up my mind on wether to upgrade to a i7 930 or just stick with what I got till the next gen of intel boards.
Almost pulled the trigger last night on $800+ on a new mobo, cpu, ram but common sense kicked in and stopped me.
My current rig is a Q6600@3360mhz 1680fsb, 4gb...
Any word on if you'll be able to use the new Penryn chips in 965 chipset boards?
Been trying to find a answer on the web but havn't found anything definitive.
I really hope they support them since 965 boards are still great performers and are up there with the newest boards as far as...
Are DVI to HDMI cables any good or would they be a problem when connecting a computer to a 1080p LCD (sharp Aquos)? I could save a few bucks and pickup a cheaper model of the TV and just use that DVI to HDMI cable.
Building a box out of some spare parts and I found a old Sound Blaster Live gamer card. I was wondering if it would be better to use the onboard sound that's on a Asus P5GPL-X or the SB Live.
It's not going to be used for anything special. Most likely just be a mp3 player or if I needed...
So after a few days of trying to get a decent overclock out of my E6600 i've just come to the conclusion that I just got a crappy one out of the batch, It tops out at 2.9ghz (stable) lol.
The reason I know it's the cpu holding me back and not my 680i is from a few signs like the fact that I...
Not sure what the problem here is but from time to time when im typing or playing a game and using WASD for movement the keyboard will cause beeping sounds to come from the motherboard speaker. Also it's like the keys get stuck, for example I was playing WoW and my guy wouldn't stop running...
I'm looking to get a HDTV and I also need a new computer monitor. I was looking at a Dell W2607C 26" LCD TV to fill the role as my new monitor and for HDTV.
I don't really knbow much about HDTV's so would this thing be any good for this role? Or would it just suck as a computer monitor?
I've got a evga 7900GTX and all of the sudden i'm having game/computer crashes and graphic artifacts in some games.
I checked the temperature and it seems ok, about 53c under load in WoW. One thing i did notice is the fan speed. It's spinning at a pretty low rate, I can very easily stop...
Can you overclock the cpu or anything with this board?
I'm not seeing any bios options on this board. I flashed to the latest ASUS bios for the board.
I got it for free from school and trying to make the most of this thing.
Putting together a Core 2 Duo rig, how do these parts look for a build?
So I switched from a X2 4400+ back to my old 4000+ and I was just wondering if there are any drivers or anything that I need to uninstall that would cause any problems?
I remember windows installing something when I went from my single core to dual core.
Which of these would be the better buy?
I have a watercooled setup. DFI LP UT SLI-DR mobo with this OCZ ram.
The ram overclocks to 211 fsb on a 1:1 with 2-3-2-5 timings and about 230 with 2.5-3-3-7.
Can the ram be run in...
So I picked up a new burner for my comp and its suppose to do 16x DVD-R. It seems it will only do 4x or 2x.
I am using Nero Ultra version 184.108.40.206. This seems to be the latest version that I could find. I am currently using 8x rated Ritek DVD-R's. These discs burnt at 8x on my old NEC...
If I touch my case I can feel electricity. Kinda feels like when you put your tongue on a dead 9v batterey. It's not that strong, like I can keep my finger on it and feel the electricity.
Could it be from using a non properly grounded outlet or is there something else causing this.
I have a Antec Truepower 2.0 550w psu (TP2-550EPS12V).
Now it operates at 49-51c idle, under load it goes upto 55-63c.
I have 2 7800's, 3 hard drives, 1 DVD drive, 4 case fans and a water pump hooked up to this.
The fan on the back of the psu only runs at 950 rpm and 1050 when it gets...
Is there any way to get the multiplier to run correctly and a .5 multiplier with 1:1? My setup would be perfect if I could only run it at that but if I use the half multiplier my ram wont be 1:1 anymore, ghey.
I am overclocking my card and been keeping a eye on my temp's and was just curious if running it overclocked with a average temp 75-80'c would be a bad thing? I have it at 610/625 and it runs just fine for hours on end but the temp does have me a little worried. I do have good case airflow but...
I just got a DFI LanParty UT nf4 SLI-DR mobo and started using the nVidia Gigabit ethernet with my DSL that goes through my Netgear router.
The problem I have is that I lag out in games for no apparent reason. It will be working perfectly fine browsing the internet and playing online...
Looking for a program to check my cpu temp, don't need anything fancy. Something that would just sit in the tray and display the tmep. I used to use MBM but it doesn't seems a little outdated and wont get my temps correctly on my nf4.
Been messing around with my new mobo the past few days and the bios that came with it dated 1/25 was just terrible.
I've really only been able to find a bunch of beta bios' to try. Any version better than the other to use?
Why do my SATA hard drives on my DFI LanParty NF4 SLI-DR cause the Safely Remove Hardware wizard thing to show up in the tray?
This is a new rig I put together using 2 Raptors(Raid) and a 3rd hard drive on the Nvidia SATA. I had the same setup on my intel board and I never got that remove...
Was gonna invest in some new ram for my nf4 sli-dr cuz my old Geil ram sucks.
I was looking at this and was wondering if anyone knew what kinda chips these were and had good results with it on this board?
Well I've narrowed it down to the 4000+ or a 3800+ rev E.
I use a water cooled setup and was wondering which of these two chips would give me better results overclocking. Anyone have good results with the 4000+ ?
I know that there are problems with widescreen monitors (i have 2005fpw) and 6800 ultra's in SLI but does it work fine with 6800 GT's?
I also heard that you can fix the problem with the ultra's by simply using the VGA cable instead of a DVI hookup, is that true?
Going to try AMD for my next rig, whats a solid mobo I can use with a Rev E 3500+.
Not gonna do SLI and I have some pc4000 ram leftover from my last rig.
It would be nice if it has atleast 3 pci slots.
What are some good earbuds? I bought some Sony MDR-EX71SL and I hate these. The cord is retarded and the highs sound like complete crap.
I'm looking for some earbuds that dont have a retarded cord and have good bass and highs.
I've had my 6800 GT (o/c ultra) for a few months now and was thinking about upgrading. My problem is should I wait a few months for the next generation of cards to come out or buy a X850 XT?
The main game I play is World of Warcraft and Half-Life 2. Does anyone know if there is a big...
This is my first flat panel monitor and I hooked it up using the DVI cable to my 6800GT. Now the screen is a little off center and its off to the right a litte and the right scroll bar ends up at the left of my screen.
How do you center the screen while using the DVI cable hookup? I know...
After looking at a few different cans im still not sure what to get.
I want either the Sennheiser HD595, 600 or 650.
Im gonna be using this mostly with my home computer that has a Audigy2 zs soundcard. I got a Pimeta headphone amp also.
I listen to alot of heavy death metal or...
