    Enough for a 4850?

    Get the Antec Earthwatts, it's one of the best budget powersupplies out. Read reviews over the net, they are generally very positive. Jonny guru's review, either the 430 or 500 should suffice.

    Razer Barracuda AC-1 Problems (A bunch of em)

    Your Z-5500 has a dac ready in it so that is useless. Reason the sound card is important is for DDL which implements surround sound (5.1) in games and movies through SPDIF instead of using 3 analog plugs to get it.

    Razer Barracuda AC-1 Problems (A bunch of em)

    I love the sound quality of my AC-1. My headphones sound SOO much richer than before and it feels like I'm at a live performance. I also get no more annoying buzz that I had with my realtek onboard when there is no outbound sound.

    Replacing Z-5500 front satellites?

    After reading your post I downloaded a tone generator and tested out the frequency myself. The subwoofer receives sounds up to 150hz while the speakers receive sound all the way down to 120hz. :confused: I still believe that this system would benefit greatly by replacing to speakers with bigger...

    Replacing Z-5500 front satellites?

    Actually the z-5500 crossover is set at 120hz. I really wish they had adjustable crossovers which would make this system 129381293x better. Different speakers will definitely improve the highs and mids. I tried out few different car speakers, out of curosity, with the z-5500 before...

    HOT! Creative Fatality Professional Headset $19.99!!!! Free shipping!

    My old Nforce 2 soundstorm couldn't push these at all. The onboard soundcard I have now can actually push these and remove distortion and rattling, which I found odd.

    Geforce GTX 200 launch on June 18th

    Eh? My 8800GTS runs crysis on high prefectly fine on 1920x1080 with custom cfg files to make it look gorgeous and close to dx10 as possible in xp. I get a average of 30-35 fps and it feels smooth, of course your idea of butter smooth might be 60+ constant fps :p!

    help with overclocking q6600 and ddr2-1000

    How is your load vcore? My ds3l has horrible vdroop so I'm at 1.365 in bios and 1.33 idle and 1.28 on load. Check out if your voltages are dropping on load.

    Zalman/Tuniq/ZEROtherm - What is the better CPU air cooler?

    Xigmatek/Kingwin or the OCZ Vendetta 2. Don't waste your money on the TRUE, the TRUE is king no more. The TRUE will def require lapping. Why would you pay 60+ dollars for a product you have to work on to make it efficient?

    A review from "REVIEW BY: Reviewed Jan 31, 2008 After having issues posting with a brand new Ultra xfinity 600 I replaced it with this product. Very happy with the results. No more issues! It looks well made from the outside. I think the cardboard box it came in is better...

    Ultra RMA question...

    From the design alone it should be quieter at least, and Xfinity is actually one of the decent Ultra powersupplies.

    I got my LianLi PC-A05B ! it's Small!

    Replaced all AS5 with MX-2 and replaced my crappy nb heatsink, getting excellent temperatures across the board. When I put it back together I accidently reversed my intake fan and was getting HORRIBLE temperature of 45+ idle, noticed this and fixed it and its running solid cool again. That...

    Xigmatek HDT-S1283

    The heatsink cut me DEEEEEP, it's very sharp. I also have a A05 running a push-pull setup. The xigmatek is getting fresh air from outside the case to the heatsink, then the stock fan is pulling air/pushing air over the ram towards the hdd and powersupply which is then pushed out by the front...

    I got my LianLi PC-A05B ! it's Small!

    The airflow in this case has treated me well so far. My HDD never go over 35C degrees and my cpu during prime load does not go over 65C at 3.2 with a Q6600. I do need to find a new north bridge cooler since the one that comes with the ds3l sucks. Maybe I'll add a BS-03 to feed in fresh air to...

    Xigmatek HDT-S1283

    Everything about the Vendetta 2 is the same except the aluminum fin design on the heatsink. Same fan mounting technique with the rubber adapters. 8 guage copper heat pipe. Same hsf=>mobo mounting tools. Even uses a 120mm rifle bearing fan, but with a lower "high" speed. To me this is a rebadged...

    I got my LianLi PC-A05B ! it's Small!

    Should be fine. The airflow in the lower section of the case is very excellent, it's the top back portion of the case which hot air gets trapped with a gpu cooler that has no exhaust set up. I'm runnning silverstone fn121s as my case fans and it's pretty damn awesome.

    Xigmatek HDT-S1283

    It's hilarious how the xigmatek is sold under 3 different names, kingwin, xigmatek and ocz vendetta 2. This cooler is very quiet and the fan in pwm mode runs at 1000-1200 rpm currently on my rig, I would say you would have no problem with sound issues. BTW I love this thing to death after...

    I got my LianLi PC-A05B ! it's Small!

    Had it run prime when I went to work. CPUID recorded a max temp of 61 58 58 61 and my idle temps are at 39 36 36 39. My room is pretty damn hot too, socal heat + 3rd story = hot. I'm running a Q6600 at 400x8@3.2

    I got my LianLi PC-A05B ! it's Small!

    Finally put together a new computer. I have my Xigmatek fan sucking in air instead of blowing so basically it's running a dual fan setup since the intake fan is so close. Since the powersupply is flipped, it's harder to hide the thick wires coming out of the power supply ><!

    Fatal1ty Professional Gaming Headset @

    I bought these cans, they are very comfortable but the sound they produce are average compared to some other cans. My set really lacks solid bass and if turned up 90%+ the sounds begins to distort. Also my mute button seems broken too, the light does not turn on at all.
