    So my Westy 37" just died... I believe.

    Man I am sorry to hear that. I am glad I payed extra for sharp. The sharp aquos LC32GPUB is only 32 inches but man this thing rocks in image quality especially once it is calibrated. I dont think I will ever use another brand for my purchases. I do like samsung too but the last two I owned...

    Bah, I just realized

    I dont think its them being cheap. It is that the adapter takes 3 plugs total to make up 1 8 pin. Most people use the 4 pin connector on the motherboard itself. I havent seen any video card include this adapter yet. My 4870 came with a 6 pin adapter because it atually does just use two molex to...

    According to the adapter specs. It's requires two molex AND a 4 pin connector to convert to 8 pin.

    Need suggestions for new system - $3000 budget!

    The reason I reccomended the premium price on the 9650 is he wants his system to last a long time. Buying it now would prevent a future upgrade. Usually I agree to get with the price performance but obviously with what he is spending he is looking for high end. The P182 sucks for cable...

    Got my new system - only 11k 3Dmarks?? That is a pretty good read on the over all relevance of a synthetic benchmark in comparison to a game test suite. In fact you could make the argument it is more accurate to delve the results from the 3dmark database than it...

    Hybrids Too Quiet, Get Fake Engine Noise

    What I dont get is we have been runing gas guzling V8 engines for like 60 years in this country or longer and all of a sudden some low speed engine noises are a problem. The sounds only turn on when the car is runing on the electric motor. Just because there hasnt been a ton of fatalities doesnt...

    Vista Security Crippled by Researchers

    AS I pointed out in another thread this security hole isnt worth jack if your runing IE in sandbox mode.. (aka UAC enabled) You would have to allow the code to be ran yourself.

    Please Help, I'm freaking sick of this!

    I was crashing in Assasin's creed a lot at first on my Radeon. I then went to the folder and made sure I was runing dx10 mode. After that I enabled Catalyst AI and I managed to beat the game without any further crashing. I think my crashes were related to my Creative Xfi. Infact it hasnt crashed...

    9950BE vs. 9850BE

    It is a 140 watt tdp I think. If i am not mistaken has bigger cache. *EDIT* I was wrong.. they are the same cache size.

    9950BE vs. 9850BE

    Well if you have a 9850 id keep it. But if you havent purchased either then get the 9950. My understanding is it overclocks ok on the 790GX boards. But as with all AMD chips it is either hit or miss.

    Buying a new rig - need some suggestions

    The thing I like about VM is they dont out source their tech support. As for motherboard selection they probably trying to keep it simple. AMD platform Or Intel. It's better in my opinion to get two very good and stable platforms than to have 80 options and none of them highly tested. HH...

    HD3870X2 - Intel Q9450 vs Phenom 9850

    Kass, You dont have to over complicate things to make it sound more cool. If AMD do infact offer better high resolution performance. That is awesome, but you dont have to go into a big rant about it and I am trying to say this without being critical and not sounding mean. Really nothing you...

    DIR-655--Very impressed with it in first hours

    I have been using the dir 655 since it released and it's easily the best router I have ever used. My house is three stories and the wiring closest is in the basement. Yet with that router I can sit by the pool outside or patio and still have good signal to surf the internet.

    Well, you guys know me. I am not one to defend Kass I want facts and nothing else. The first link was mostly BS but the other links shows some interesting results at high resolution giving AMD the lead in some of the games. I am having trouble finding more sources though.

    3870 HDMI Audio Problem

    My 4870 shows HDMI audio under the sound properties control panel. I am using Vistax64 and it found and installed the driver right away when I first booted with the card. You can try going to device manager un install all of your sound devices and reboot and windows should automatically find the...

    HD3870X2 - Intel Q9450 vs Phenom 9850

    To test the cpu speed they would need to lower the res some more. All that proved was there was a slight difference in crossfire performance between amd and intel. Both looked gpu bound. The overclockers club test were interesting though. Very interesting. I would like to see the phenom 9950

    Diablo III’ Designer Turns Tables, Judges Fans’ Screenshots (MTV Multiplayer)

    Why is everyone hating on people who have an opinion. I dont get that. Calling people names because they dont like the art direction is silly. I personally dont like it and the main reason is because it has already been done. If It looked better and much different than warcraft then I wouldnt be...

    BS PSU calculator?

    Asus's calculator is a little high but it is because they use the peak power draw for each component you select. Probably trying to be on the safe side. My system below was reccomended for a 950 Watt PS. I would say a Good 800 Watt would be fine and right now I am runing it on a 580 watt but I...

    Valve to talk buyout options with EA

    Yes, I understand some of the fears. Infact John Carmack said at Quakecon it was because of Valves reccomendation to them that they decided to sign with EA. So the old EA is gone and dead and I wish people would let that go. The way I see it is this, For gaming to continue on as many...

    Valve to talk buyout options with EA

    They also dont have an infinite amount of money either to be able to do that all the time. With EA they would get more powerful design tools, money to develop the game the way they want it instead of until they run out of money and have to release it. EA has been more layed back on deadlines...
