    Should I get a GTX 280 or 260?

    you won't be disappointed with either card. As long as your monitor is 22inch or less I wouldn't consider anything but the 260! The money you save will just add to the rest of your system like a good psu or a good Cpu-cooler. I don't know your financial situation?? Hmmmmm2 the clocks you...

    G.SKILL 2GB PC2-6400 800 questions?

    With 6400HZ if you insist on crippling it running it at such low speeds the run it at 3-3-3-5 Better yet use the dividers and get it up between 550 and 625 or 1100mhz and 1250 mhz with timings of 5-5-5-6. You are just torturing that memory by dogging it down the way you are!!! You have some of...

    VisionTek 4870 or EVGA GTX 260 SSC

    You know I am just thrilled with my 260GTX. I run it daily @ 751/1536/1236 with my fan at 100% it will run furmark forever at these settings and never exceed 63C. 3 hours of COD4 free for all gets it up to 43C. The card is a little montster. All that being said however if I already had a...

    Hey, my pleasure Donovan i look forward to you getting your new set up!! I will be watching and will lend a hand when and where and if you need it. I like to get every last bit of speed out of a system I can as it just makes your dollar to performance ratio look that much better!! WZ

    Donovan Tipton I see you are running the MSI P6N SLI Board. I Think were I you I would opt for either the e8400 or the 8500 they are only about $10 apart now @ newegg. I would not hold my breath for ultra high clocks with the MSI board though. With the E8500 if you could get to 400fsb you would...

    which to buy 260 or 4870

    Most of the people in this thread will never get near either card's potential because of your anemic clocks. Wolfdales,Conroes, lord some of you are running obsolete amd machines. All of these will bottlenck these cards at your low clocks. Both are very capable. You are all in here arguing the...

    which to buy 260 or 4870

    I bought the MSI 260GTX from the egg. I got mine for 299 free ship. It is the best card I have run on to date. It is also the coolest card to date!! I see people calling others liars and yet no-one has posted a temp on either side I seen some say how torturous furmark is so I loaded it...

    Old P4, will it work on P35 chipset?

    Not only that but your Prescott will run Cooler than ever!!. You see the Prescott developed much of it's heat due to the chipsets it ran on. With a modern more efficient chipset they run much cooler!! Check out my old 540 running on my Asus P5KE-wifi. I ran till my E8400 showed up!! I also...

    8800 GTS: Noise and Temperature

    The standard evga 8800GTS is just a fantastic card. It is quiet and an absolute terror. Now mind you my 6600 Conroe is running at 3825mhz daily. At that speed My 8800GTS scores 194,000 on Aquamark and 60,000+ on 3D01SE. As I said it is a terror. There is no game I can't play till I have had all...

    Getting better airflow in my case.

    on the outside pumping air in. Close up the front of your case and put oin the side cover. you can't get air flow like that. It is also better to have positive airflow. that is just a little more going in than is going out. It keeps the dust down and helps everything stay cooler. Here is a link...

    GSkill HZ 4X1GB Timings or raw oc?

    Pre overclocked cards worth it?

    No Need to flash to change clocks!!!!! You flash to change a bios which inturn changes voltage settings. Just buy the Cheapest possible and clock it yourself. I just bought the cheapest EVGA 8800gts 320. For $259. Now the evga superclocked cost like $50 to $60 more. The cheap one comes...
