    looking for budget motherboard/cpu combo, preferably 1155,

    So, the motherboard in my aunt's computer died. I decided it would be better to try and upgrade it than just replace the motherboard, so I'm on the hunt. It looks like I can get something like a celeron G530 and an entry level H61 motherboard for the 100 ish range between sites like newegg and...

    Still hunting for a motherboard... polling for mATX 775 or AM2+

    So, my motherboard died on me and I'm looking for another one. I could go AMD or intel, but I need it to be cheap... so 40 shipped to 31721 is the cap right now. I'm looking for mATX and something better than a 945 chipset in intel, and something that will support AM2+(I know some boards support...

    Accelero S1 compatibility 9800GT

    I know that the 9800GT is basically a rebadged 8800GT. Does this mean that an accelero S1 rev1 will fit a 9800GT? It doesn't list it on the website, but the S1 r1 predates the 9800GT so I wouldn't exactly expect it to be listed anyway. Any ideas? How about a 9800GTX? edit: I think I'm just...

    I want an accelero S1 (or similar) that will fit a 9800GT. I think that limits it to the rev2 but not sure... LMK what you have. I'd like to beat the current ewiz deal that has one for 21 shipped after coupon.

    Looking for AM2+ CPU (not really looking for K8)

    I need an AM2+ cpu. I'd prefer a triple core, however I'd take a low-end quad if the price is really good (read: PHII 810/805) Again, I've changed my mind on phenom I cpus and I don't really want to go that way unless it's just an unbeatable deal.

    wanted: help me build a combo

    OK, so I've got a motherboard and RAM secured, now all I need is a CPU. Anything AM2+/AM3 qualifies(IOW K10/K10.5) however, the preference is for phenom II based CPUs. Actually, the preference is for 45nm triple cores. All of the 6mb quads are going to be outside of my price range for sure...

    Look at the inspiron 1318 on This link to get an idea of what I'm looking for. I've seen 15.4 laptops and I think they are just too big and bulky to lug around campus or anything like that. I've also seen netbooks and think they'd be a pain in the butt to type on or do anything useful...

    Wanted: E2XXX Series CPU W or W/O heatsink

    continued driver support for XP x64

    will we continue to see new drivers for new devices for x64 XP? With the new underpinnings for the vista video subsystem, I do not see a lot of video card cross compatibility there. I don't want to be stuck without an upgrade path.

    How to identify a G2 brisbane?(Other than the black ed.)

    I see a lot of Brisbanes available on different sites, and on ebay, but I was wondering if there's something in the markings on the CPU that might identify it (beyond doubt) as a G2 revision brisbane? Obviously for the extra overclocking headroom :)

    How much do you think AMD is getting for every 2900 pro sold?

    Do you think we'll see barcelonas with 2 cores disabled?

    If the cache is good but all 4 cores don't pass stability, you should still be able to utilize the 2mb of shared cache, right? Although, I don't really see much point in pushing a performance dual core processor seeing that the quad core is supposed to be the "performance" part and they'll...

    My unexpected reaction to the wii

    Despite what is being hyped about the wii, what I like the most about the controller is having one in each hand instead of having to hold one controller with both hands. To me, it is just LOADS more comfortable.
