    Need help just might have made a mistake

    OK How do I go about getting it. Also does that include 64 bit version? I don't think I would want to game on win7 with just 2 gigs but if I can get win7 for 50-60bucks I might send word to the family and put in a request for some ram for my birthday next month.

    Need help just might have made a mistake

    Thanks for the input guys. I did panic though as I went most of the day without any responses and I called and voided the order as it had not shipped yet. I did order the 1GB version in its place. Much thanks defaultluser for getting to the bottom of that. I think I will be fine though with...

    EVGA Problems please advise

    Actually I have seen several threads on different forums with similar problems with evga. Also two of the RMA'd 8800's were tested on another computer and gave the same result. I am pretty confident that they bad cards but as I am sure you know with PC's, sometimes the problem is well hidden...

    EVGA Problems please advise

    I am having some problems with EVGA and I was wondering if someone might provide any insight. I have been through 5 RMA's with EVGA to date. The first 4 were for an 8800gtx, and of those 4, the first 3 were bad right out of the box - got blue artifacts on the screen in windows and could not...

    Help 360 setup for a friend with 24"dell

    Need Direct X 10 and 30" Monitor Advice

    I did a quick run with Fraps and I can say that the FS number are accurate. I ran from 29 to the mid 50s FPS @2560x1600 (max settings no AA) depending on the area. I would not want to play at that res though because overall it is not nearly as smooth as if I scale it down to 1920x1200. You...

    1680x1050 for FEAR E.P. on

    start/shared documents/monolith productions/fear/settings.cfg. Change the .cfg to a .txt file and input the values for your resolution then change it back to .cfg. That is how it works in XP. Dont know vista but it cant be that different.

    Vista or XP for BSHOC & Crysis

    Well I just found out Crysis has been pushed back to 11/13 release date (it was 9/11 for a while) so I have a couple of extra months. I think I will stick with XP for bioshock and if I miss out on alot of DX10 features I can always replay after I pick up 2 more gigs of ram and vista.

    Vista or XP for BSHOC & Crysis

    Might consider that but I dont want to spend my money on vista unless I will get the value out of it. This is pure gaming use. BTW Think comparing XP to 2K might be a bit harsh as I believe a majority are still on XP. I think after crysis that will change though.

    E6850 or Q6600???

    IMHO the future we have been speculating on from the moment dual cores first hit the market about 1.5 years ago is finally here, at least the beginning of it. You see this with Anands Lost Planet benches, next month Bioshock, then Crysis, all multithreaded where more cores will benefit. I say...

    Calling all stacker 830 owners

    I have the stacker 830 and I am have been having trouble with the side fan mounting clips. It seems like the mounting brackets are squeezing the fans when they are put in and casing the fan blades to hit their own casing making a grazing sound. Anyone have this problem or know if anything can...

    Friendly reminder overclocking can be bad

    Probably has more to do with the card itself than overclocking, although I sure OCing does speed up the process of degredation. The 7900's were notorius for this. I dont remeber this happening in geforce 6, 7800, or now with 8800 series...
