    8800 GTX Bake / Video Card to go with Q6600

    I was given a Fry's system with a Foxconn 8800 GTX/768 along with Intel Q6600 CPU. The system wouldn't start with the Foxconn card so I put in my EVGA GTX560ti 448 and it boots fine. Is it possible to revive the 8800 via the baking method? I took off the the thermal pads before reading the...

    Lian-li PC-Q07 Build and questions.

    Thanks but already have the PSU. I know 550watts is overkill. Will the 2500k with stock cooler put out too much heart? I rather have a quad core than dual core.

    Lian Li PC- Q7 itx case.

    This case can mount a 2.5" drive below the 3.5"? How much space is there? I have a 12.5mm laptop drive will it fit? How long of a optical drive will fit? Is this a concern? Also, is this available in the US in Silver?
