Does your MB have a speaker? I've worked on some boards that don't have a built in speaker. If you don't have one plugged in you don't notice the post codes :)
Also did I read your post correctly, you had this issue prior to the new video card?
I think after looking at my options I'd be better off parting out the system and using the cash towards upgrading my main rig which I planned on doing regardless. Then I can use the old components from that for a HTPC.
Yup - I actually bought 2 Samsung 1TB drives from newegg. Should be getting them today. I've been working on ripping my Dvd's and will be starting on my blueray library as soon as I get my new PC built. Which will hopefully be soon :D
Then hopefully I can part my current system into a HTPC.
I have an old computer sitting around that I use once in a great while to simply browse the web on my tv. I would like to get some additional use out of it and thought I could turn it into a full time HTPC. What would I have to get to upgrade this system to play BlueRay & dvd's?
I have Shogun 2 and Rift on pre-order. DA2 will be a launch day pickup. But I think I'll wait for DOW Retribution and Deadspace 2 to hit a steam sale.
And to think I was starting to make a dent in my backlog...
I actually have an almost identical build I'm ordering tonight. As for the video card take a look at this one.
$200 after rebate which is pretty dang good IMO.
That's exactly what I was thinking of doing with my Lancer. It seems like it would be a fun build.
Also for soloing Cure/Shock Spikes are almost must haves. I leveled up to 14 without them and man what a difference they make.
I wonder what the actual number is. To bad SE won't release information like that.
What were the numbers for other MMO's like WAR and Aion? I bet there's a similarity, maybe not quite as big but I'm sure its closer then people would think.
I had more lag then normal last night for about 15min after logging in. But after that it was smooth sailing.
I also updated my Video Card drivers last night (Card in Sig). It seemed to make a difference. I was able to see players a lot farther off, and it didn't take as long to load...
Might want to try Microsoft Security Essentials and CCleaner as well.
Also make sure you backup your work on a separate drive/disk. Just make sure to scan it throughly before you put it back on your PC. ;)
