    ATX HTPC Case Suggestions

    So my friend recently gifted me a Asus M4A7BT-E + Phenom II X4 965 (I think) left over from a previous setup.

    Death of a GTX460?

    The PSU in my sig was wrong (corrected now), I got a HX650w to replace the aging HX520w. My mistake :) That being said, it's probably a good step to try just to cover all my bases.

    Death of a GTX460?

    The PSU is quite new. I recently had it swapped out recently (used to have a HX520W). Well, my swap to a different PCI-E card didn't work out, same behavior when I fired up Furmark or a game. I did verify though that the temps aren't rising to anything ridiculous and that the fan is...

    Death of a GTX460?

    Thanks for your answers so far [H]'ers! I'll loop around with MC again, I was on the phone with a rep when I asked so it's quite possible they were busy (or didn't care) and didn't actually check I don't think the warranty period is in question, rather the lack of a original sales...

    Death of a GTX460?

    So, last night while playing DX:HR my computer hard locked. I powered it down, and after a few seconds I brought it back up. Half way through loading Windows, it blue screened citing "nvlddmkm.sys" as the culprit. I started by booting into safe mode, to do a re-install of the drivers. In...

    Major compatibility issue with NVidia 400/500-series GPUs & mainboards?

    I've run into an issue similar to this when coming out of sleep, or standby. My GTX460 would artifact, lock up, and reboot my PC. I ran a few tests in furmark to see if my GPU was dying (I figured I would see heavy artifacting if it was) and all the tests passed with flying colors. I recently...
