  1. I'm thinking I might go for the DFI LANPARTY nF4 SLI-DR SKT939 motherboard instead as I've read that it's very stable and has some powerful BIOS overclocking features


    Also, what is Windows XP x64 like, I understand there are some compatability issues but are they major enough for me to just stick to the 32 bit version

  2. Why 2 drives. I have NEVER needed 2 drives. Any copying is more reliable from the drive to the pc then "on the fly" IMO.


    I do video editing in my job and I am almost constantly burning disks. Having to wait for one to finish before I can access another is frustrating to say the least. This is partly why I want a dual core processor

  3. I actually hadn't given that much thought cos I have lots or RAM lying around. It seems the Abit mobo doesn't like ECC so, as per crucial's suggestion, I'll go for this:

    2Gb Kit (2x1Gb) DDR PC3200 CL=3 UNBUFFERED NON-ECC DDR400 2.6V 128Meg x 64


    Also, what do you guys think about cooling? Should I get a better CPU cooler than the standard one and is water cooling worth the money?

  4. I have been looking around and planning for months and finally settled on a system which compromises power and price just right for me. It's the first major gaming rig I've built so I'd love to hear what you think. Will these components work well together and do I need to worry about heat (more than this system will cope with already)?

  5. Not many people will voluntarily give up a $3.6 million a year job for the chance to earn $1055 a month as an Army Ranger, but true heroes that believe in what this country is trying to accomplish will do that. That doesn't lessen the sacrifices of others, but does kind of make Mr. Tillman's loss a little unique.

  6. Trying to blame Clinton on dropping the ball? If I remember right, the USS Cole incident happened during the Bush administration. Thats when the memos and the evidence that Al Qaeda was now aiming inside the US came to the Security Advisor's attention.

    The attack on the Cole was on October 12, 2000. Bill Clinton was in office.

  7. Blix, a lawyer and former Swedish foreign minister who at 75 now serves as chairman of Sweden's Weapons of Mass Destruction Commission, retired from the United Nations last June.

    There's something about that statement that just doesn't feel right to me...

  8. Your full of it.....

    There's a six-page thread about being a little more considerate of others when posting...perhaps you missed it?

  9. Awww, :filtered:... you just want to make me cuddle up with you. Group hug?

    Oh what a letdown to this plot...just the other day both of you were going to rip each others Adam's Apples out over a web host or something like that.

  10. .  I can handle your questions- I answered them.  Then you continued to be .  So just shut up now.

    That's pretty classless...you were being asked questions in a civil manner and had no reason to react like this.


    Personally, I think you are full of it and got called on it.
