    I7980X and New NVIDIA Parts

    Just a quick question for you guys. Do you think the i7980X would hold back newer NVIDIA parts such as a GTX Titan? I realize this maybe sounds sort of ridiculous, but if anyone has any insight on this I'd greatly appreciate it. Thanks!

    Any idea when we can expect 5xxx Mobility line?

    Thinking about a gaming laptop and the possibility for a lot of power with a lot less juice required due to how efficient the desktop 5xxx series has been. I know some 5xxx mobility details came out, but I don't believe any sort of release timeframe was set. Anyone have any clue or...

    Would 6GB or even 12GB actually be used in gaming on a Win 7 64 bit system? Or would most of that memory go to waste? Thanks!

    Metro Vacuum ED500 DataVac Electric Duster, Safe alternative to canned air?

    Hi, I've been looking on Amazon for canned air to dust out my dust-prone PC and I found this little thing. The user reviews say they've used it fine with PCs and even the item description mentions it, but I thought I would ask here first: Do you think this thing is a safe, good alternative to...

    So, what to look forward to this year? Any big leaps expected?

    Fairly broad question this is in regards to both LCD monitors for computers and plasma/lcd televisions (or any other tech.) Currently, as a gamer, TN panels are pretty much what you need but they suffer from a variety of issues. Is there any information as to what is to be expected this year, if...

    Does this count as confirmation of a new NVIDIA High End come Nov?

    http://www.maximumpc.com/article/nvidia_launching_new_hardware_to_coincide_with_crysis_release Sure sounds like it... P.S. I highly doubt the guy was referring to the 8800GT :P That's not exactly something worth fanfare when put in context with a power hungry game like Crysis.

    Are these power specs enough for an 8800 Ultra?

I'm not looking for speculation, does anyone know for a fact it will not be an issue with an Ultra? I don't mind a GTX but for some reason there is a large disparity in the recommended power for a...

    Whats the difference between the X2s aside from clocks?

    Lets say you have a FX-60 (939) @ 2.6, and OC it somehow to 3GHZ? Is it the same as a 6000+? I mean, isn't the architechture really the same, it appears to me its just clock differences on this line. Cache as far as I know doesnt make much if any difference in gaming (which is why im asking)

    MSI NX8800 Ultra OC back in stock on Newegg, thoughts?

    I've been hearing this card is a really great value 595bucks after mail in rebate, and the core clock is really high, and supposedly can OC a bit further. From looking at it it seems like this would be an 8800 Ultra that is worth the premium, as opposed to the stock Ultra. Thoughts? I hear...

    X2 4800 (939) Attempt to OC to 2.6GHZ? Any true perf gain?

    Topic basically. Would this be considered an easily attainable OC on a X2 4800 (ASUS A8N-32 SLI Deluxe, Mushkin PC3200 DDR) If so, do you think I would notice any performance gains in either gaming or even a real bump in CPU score for 3dmark06? I'm also on 2x7900GTs if thats at all...

    Is the 8800GTX the sign of things to come RE: heat/size?

    The 8800GTX as we all know is a particularly LARGE card and really power hungry.
