The parts shipped here was $2,150.00. What blows my mind is that 1000+ of that was just video cards. Those 4870 X2's are not cheap unfortunately. I've been out of the game for 3 years in terms of PC gaming and nothing has changed on that front.
Then I purchased a 24" monitor, which was...
What up ladies and gents,
I got my equipment in, I am currently installing windows vista business, 64 edition. A couple of questions:
1) At post I am getting a "unrecognized cpu post error" but can continue through it. I am guessing a bios update will fix that.
2) at post I am...
I went and picked up a Samsung 245bw today. My equipment should either be here tomorrow, or Thursday. So far I have this monitor hooked up to my laptop and I am loving it. Great picture, very vibrant!
I can't wait to game!!!!
Update. After reading a few reviews, I think I really want to go SLi this time around.
Do you have to use DDR3 in this board?
EVGA 132-YW-E179-A1 LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 790i
Would DDR2 work, as long as it's 240pin? I want to go with DDR2 Corsiar Dominator, 4 gigs, because well, I already...
Alright, here is an update.

ASUS RAMPAGE FORMULA LGA 775 Intel X48 ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail

and replacing video cards with

If there are no issues with my current build, I think I am going to pull down. Right now I am going to run with my 17" monitor unitl i figure out what i am going to do. What I'd "like to do" is get a 32" plasma and mount it on the wall in front of my desk. I have an "L" shapped desk where 1...
I'm not really a fan boy, I usually go with what's on top at the time.... In my last gaming rig I had ATi, but had some issues with it. Not sure if it was a chipset issue or not, but from the reviews this time around the 280 is on top.
I have Windows Vista Business, but should I throw one...
Thoughts on the below? This is what I might pull down on. Any thing I should reconsider?

No, I'm going to be upgrading monitors. What I meant to say in my original post, I have two 17" monitors I was going to run side by side, which yes is retarded. I'm going to pick up a 24" this weekend. Actually, I might go to Sams club and pick up a 32 - 42" in Plasma to mount above my office...
Alright. I'm getting closer to pulling down. What mobo should I be looking at?
I'm looking at going with the following:
Video Card. 4870
So now, what about the mobo and what about the ram? I'd like to go with that new Thermaltake "all open" case, looks pretty sweet...
If I'm going to do it, might as well do it up right. The video card I'd like top of the line, but the processor really doesn't have to be.... Back when i was into gaming, having the highest processor didn't really make or break the rig.
Or has that changed some in todays games?
What up, what up.
It's been A LONG time since i last posted. I've been super busy with work, life the whole nine yards. I'm looking at building a new gaming PC, since i currently don't have one.
I am COMPLETELY out of the loop on what is "in" and what I should maybe look at going with...
What if the primary is unresponsive and you can't even access the box anymore? then what?
Also, what if you just delete it in Active Directory on the Secondary DC and just say "Denote but keep using as a computer"? Would that promote the secondary DC as the primary then? AC and DNS are...
