    Cpu Speed System Try

    I have my system tray full of useful information. One thing that I would like is for it to show the current frequency of the cpu. It's dynamic so it changes a lot and I am addicted to seeing what my computer is doing, lol.. Any Ideas, the less the mem and resources it uses the better. I...

    Need your opionion on this MSI hd 6950 quality

    So far what I have to say that both of my MSI 6950's have unlocked and overclocked to 950, I try to not push the ram as much as I want 'cause know the mem has a little lower standards compared to the 6970.. Temp stay nice too. Try if you can to get a reference card. So just be carefull with the...

    Core i7 2600K 69% faster than Zambezi-FX according to TrueCrypt benchmark leaked

    I think it looks very similar to many synthetic benches that look great, and make consumers want to purchase, but in the end will only benefit a very small percentage of the users. Not saying it is not impressive, but in my opinion it is a bit pointless for an "all around bench". We will see...

    6950 too big what else would work?

    +1 for a new case, it will be a better choice later on when the cards are all a larger format, unless (and i'm sure they will be) you wait for the same performance in a smaller package. Just my 2 cents. Although it is very likely you have a nice setup with the current case and don't want to...

    Duke Nukem Forever Demo Released

    Maybe no one agrees, but I think anything to do with this day late dollar short shit should fuck off, and kill itself. That is as nice as I could put it, I hope a lot of people feel the same way as I do. Maybe we just need a mod for ANY game out on PC now with some titties and we will be satisfied?

    560 Ti vs 6950 Aghrrh

    It can easily be done, the cooler is in my opinion not even close to piss poor. I am running at 950mhz core (1.2vcore), 1350mem, with a moderate fan profile. It never hits more than 59c, with the fan at about 55% max. And I live in a very hot and damp environment with no ac, ambient is usually...

    560 Ti vs 6950 Aghrrh

    +1 6950 (or xfire 2 later if you want), unlock the shaders, and oc those bad ass mofo's.

    Stupid question - What is the current nVidia equivalent to the 9800GT?

    I agree a 560ti would be a great choice, very well rounded card. If you wanted to try an AMD card I just can't keep from recommending a 6950 with unlocked shaders, but that is my bias opinion, I have had much luck with it.

    Stupid question - What is the current nVidia equivalent to the 9800GT?

    EDIT:Sorry I did not notice that you were just asking what the equivalent to a 9800gt is. But if you do want a nice upgrade these questions will get some god opinions. Well, we need a few answers here. What kind of improvements are you looking for, what res do you game at, what are your...

    Directx Override App?

    Yes , thank you I just could not remember what it was called and could not look though the vast apps on my machine\the innternets. Would have installed Riva Tuner and fired it right up if i knew it was bundled in there, again thanks.

    Way to take me down a notch jeez, think if those tweets were around 12 years ago, it would be like Native American markings on a wall, and would have advanced the way we "hunt" new game engines.

    Spokesman For Anonymous Is Quitting

    I think it is hard to like or dislike them myself. I like some of the causes they fight for. But on the other hand I don't like the fact they take away some of the hard working users ability to use the broken networks that we have paid to use. Sure Sony (and many more of their targets) should...

    Totally off topic, I hate it when he makes that strange "geek" noise like a weird laugh while he talks, lol. Other than that I think he is a great software engineer. To me that rage for the iphone demo looked pretty damn good,it looked like he just screwing with a few ideas for a short period of...

    Directx Override App?

    I could swear that I heard of a nice little app going around that many people have used to over ride many setting like the AA, and AF. When you can't seem to get the ATI or Nividia driver and\or the game to do it. I don't know if it is just me but it seems that many of the games that I enable...

    Max safe voltage for 6950?

    Nice temps, are those with full load? I run my 6950 (unlocked) at 950mhz/1350mhz at 1.175, I just changed from 1.2, Ill see if it holds up with the lowered volts when I'm, done benchmarking. My temps: Idle 39-40, load is 59-60, Stock cooling with the MSI fan profile (It keeps the fan speed...

    back up power/conditioner questions

    I have a PC that is always connected to an APC 750VA UPS. I have frequent power loss (I live in Puerto Rico, with many storms and a very bad power gird), and many power surges that are a quick loss or spike of power that will not even turn my tv off, but would kill my PC. I have found with my PC...

    Moving SecuROM Licences

    Ok, thanks that makes a lot of sense. But the question I have here has not been addressed. I guess this would make for a better question. Is the information that is collected about my specific machine (the information that is analysed to see whether or not I have made changes to my PC) kept...

    Moving SecuROM Licences

    No I don't believe they are working. I have seen a lot of people complaining about buying Crysis on Steams EA week deal, and not being about to activate it. Not sure if its EA, Steam or SecuROM, but if I had to guess you know what I would guess.

    Moving SecuROM Licences

    I really don't know much about SecuROM at all, but what I do know I don't like, lol. My question is: If I want to do a fresh windows install (as I like to do every 6 months or so) does anyone know how I could go about moving the SecuROM information over so I don't use another activation on my...

    Why do you buy Apple products?

    I should have clarified, I like to use many applications that have numerous options so I can manipulate the application the way I would like to use it. Also I love apps that provide a lot of behind the scenes info (like the element inspector in chrome, or the about:memory page for example) And...

    Why do you buy Apple products?

    Well guys... simple is true, I'm thinking it's to simple. I have been catching myself thinking very hard to get around this OS, sure thats great for a novice, but I love the complexity of applications and Windows. Will keep trying and see if it grows on me.

    Man Unknowingly Liveblogs Bin Laden Operation

    Hes not dead, but now that most of the public thinks so he just got a free pass. Obama seems to be very good at deflecting any negative media. Many Americans will accredit the killing of OBL to him, and his "wonderful administration", and he will in turn have better turn out at the polls. Just...

    Why do you buy Apple products?

    I guess what I meant because I am ignorant (not so much after reading the thread) of Apple products is that it seems very difficult to upgrade a Mac so I thought the average course of action for the most part is purchasing a new machine. It seems that was an assumption that I took to far, again...

    Why do you buy Apple products?

    I'm really leaning towards trying out a Mac Book Pro. I'm looking for one that will have great battery life, and will be a good mobile desktop replacement, not so much the display size, but have good clock speed 4gig+ memory, and a decent display adapter. Any thoughts? I have been looking...

    To upgrade the motherboard or not?

    Are you using a manual core voltage? Does your motherboard allow for an auto core voltage? What I would suggest is to (if you can) put the core voltage on auto, then do your stability tests (prime95, intel burn in) and everything else you can throw at it. All the while monitor the core...
