  1. As someone who just got his first upgrade in a LONG time and it's a fancy new graphics card..... :filtered:IT I can't win.
  2. what's this DR Dos? I think I'll try a bootable cd in the mean time because it won't take the bios from a pendrive
  3. The board turns on alright but doesn't give me a monitor signal! It borked right after I flashed the bios so I'm 100% sure the bios is shot. I have put the bios file on a pen drive but I don't think the board is doing anything with it!
  4. This may be the stupidest thing you've ever heard but I'm making a last ditch effort to save my motherboard and I need to get the bios onto a floppy. The problem is the bios file is 2mb! How am i supposed to get it on?
  5. Here's how I see it to stay somewhere near the top of the pile... Starting off you need 2.5k to get everything and then roughly 1k every 6months- year depending to change card, cpu and mobo. You can generally keep hard drives, case, psu, and some other bits through 3-4 upgrades..
  6. No point for those cards.... put the money towards a single 3870 instead.
  7. Best piece of writing I've seen in weeks.... Wonderfully worded and expressed.
  8. RIDICULOUS http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y55/bigch...ldkitPC6400.jpg No problem 2.3v super pi 32M....Haven't had a chance to test tthe other kit yet... But I now have a new 32M, 05, 01 and two wprime scores... Very happy with the ram clocking on X38
  9. Your problem lies here! 1.5v for 3.8ghz about right, adding more for more is what you have to do though. Oh and if you are getting phase get an SS custom built for less than the price of Vapo with better temps.
  10. 6850 is the same price=no brainer. Copyron, that's more than likely a cpu limit, Just increase the cpu voltage! If that doesn't help try updating the bios.
  11. Are you using XP? Edit: I think you are...I'm pretty much stumped too then. Have you tried moving it to a different partition (if you have one)?
  12. Not with those cards you can't! You would be MUCH better off going crossfire anyway!! But I'd wait for the X38 model...should be soon.
  13. Using vista 32bit ultimate now and I love it! Especially because my drivers actually work with it (sometimes) unlike in XP. I'm sure I'll be sick of it in around 2 days tho.
  14. I ended up getting it anyway by using windows install clean up. How are you getting on with your 2900? I'm only at 900/1100
  15. I can't install CCC, it says that a version is already installed when afaik there isn't! And when it goes on clicking on the CCC icon does nothing Anyone else get this? Using 7.8
  16. You. Are. Gay. Get over yourself. And get a 300c charger or a nice Passat.
  17. I would have done the same...booHoo cartoons. Get over it.
  18. Yup, you have to be stupid AND unable to pay upfront.
  19. I'm afraid it won't be running until the price drops as it's fairly farked.
  20. I don't think you understand, I have given up with her and I'm already working on someone else Just don't want us to never talk again.
  21. ...now I have no idea how to talk to her... I was thinking suggesting meeting up somewhere and just catching up some cus the way it is now sucks...what's the verdict?
  22. CF'd 2900s? If you could wait for X38 that would be the best thing.. but before then a good 975 board would be a good choice. The P5WgS64 (I think) also know as wallstreet afaik, the XBX2, The DFi infinity...they're all good choices and if he's going for the extreme edition cpu I'd even hesitantly reccommend the AW9dMAX
  23. We talked and she said no SUcks to have to say it but it's pretty much what I expected.... Hey, guilt free pass for my sailing course now tho.
