  1. I got this in the mail yesterday so pretttyyyy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What kind of setup are you guys running? Cpu? etc etc..
  2. Well, im looking to build a small form factor because its little, light, and WiFi built in on it, i can carry it right in the living room, hook it up hdmi and play on a 360 controller if i want to, or watch a movie. From what ive read the psu seems strong enough under load. with a 7850,or 7870 i wont draw anymore than 330watts i think. Ive got a big case already, thermal take armor. its a full tower, its just the front panel is missing. i don't know where to get a replacement for it. I guess i want something thats a little bigger than a video game console. But about 10-20 tim
  3. Yes, i was looking at that board. Although, it has no ability to overvolt or even under volt.
  4. Hey guys, long time no see! Its been a while. I must say, have not been here since 2009! wow lol, im married with 2 kids now. thats crazy.. anyways, i started checking out the pc market again. As im typing this on my Intel P4 2.93ghz with 1gb ram and a ide HD on integrated grapihics. its so fasttt!! wooh just got done beating crysis 2. lol joke! No ive been looking in the market alot now! Newegg mainly, looked all through amd and intel. I was a big AMD fan, and now it seems intel is doing so good with there cpu's. Anyways, after alot of reading and checking out the newer games. Thats it fo
  5. Hey guys, i have been though a mill getting GTA IV to work on my pc. first of all, make sure you have windows xp with sp3/ or windows vista with sp1. because it wont work withouth either of those. and the game is very difficult to run. mainly because when gta IV designed the game, they actually didnt do such a great job. but! you can make the game run alot better like what i did. also you need to download a cache booster. especially for people with only 2gb of memory like my self. but before i tweaked a little bit, it was crushing my gtx 260. and using all the memory!
  6. currently running the GTX 260 at 710mhz core/ 1404Mhz shaders, and 2400Mhz memory. i have looped 3dmark vantage at 1680/1050 4xaa 16xAF extreme settings. all is well, also games are running stable, as well ati tool artifact scanner runs all day as well. I have yet to push the core or memory or shaders to a overclock that shows artifacts. im still trying temps are 61c load 100% fan speed.
  7. I got the GTX 260 today, and the card was retail sealed in box! although, it was a factory overclocked as well! it was clocked at 647mhz core/1300mhz shaders 2200mhz memory! this is a great deal for 170$ fallout 3 is blazing fast! wow! i have not tested benchmarks yet, although i have not overclocked the card either. im curious to see how far it will go!!!! what u guys think for 170$? newegg is #1 By the way, the card just barely fit in my case. it had about 1mm of clearance. i thought i was going to have to cut my case up to make it fit. and for overclocking im sure the c
  8. ok i got my new PSU today, antec 1000 for 170$. sounds good! installed that. from the tracking info my video card posted in raliegh today! so i will have it tomorrow. cant wait to overclock!!!!! man im cpu limited come on tax refund time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  9. Hey guys good hearing from ya. Well its actually a long story. i found my self looking at video cards, and its not the new core 216. its just the original gtx 260. although! I found it OEM for 172$ on newegg. and i purchased it and payed for it, but turns out newegg was out of stock. so there sending me a retail one for 172$. i feel lucky! i purchased a new powersupply so i could power it as well. and yess very CPU limited i am. i will be upgrading that very shortly. i sold the hd4850 for nearly what i paid for the gtx 260. so i came out really well. and i have realized in some games where u
  10. Hey guys, anyways, im downloading :fallout3: and wanted to make sure i could run the game very well. i picked up a OEM GTX 260 at newegg for 172$ msi 896mb. hopefully they overclock a little better then the 4850's did. Does anyone have a GTX260? Do u have it overclocked? Anyways, i made the mistake to place the order saturday, so even though ive been charged nothing will be sent out till monday.
  11. I got it working with no router!! yes finally. I just went to dial up properties and enables networking internet sharing. and now its working great!! both computer OL wuth my 3G usb modem and laptop connected to desktop with ethernet.
  12. OK ive got Alltel wirless Wifi modem hooked USB in to my desktop, And im running my laptop to my desk top via ethernet. my desktops internet works fine and i can share files to both computers. but i cant get the internet to work with my laptop. Only my desktop has internet. I got it to work for 5 minutes, both having internet. And it stopped. Ive tryed everything i turned on file sharring with both computers, And got both private connections. and i tried public connections. How do i do this??? Thanks for the help
  13. I would plan for another HD4850 proubly 2 weeks after i got the new board and CPU running.
  14. well, There are going to be alot of games out there, And there are games out now, That i see FPS drops. And, crysis is hard to run to. Crossfire seems to double the performance. Other then the boards crossfire problem, Everything else on it is fine.
  15. Yes, The board Is nice. Although, When running crossfire It runs 1 video card at 16x and the other video card at 4x. Im not sure how much of a hit that is. but, from what im hearing that defeats the purpose of it even being crossfire capable.
  16. Oh Great then!!! The Abit AX78 Looks to be great, And my main concern was overclocking. I see guys pulling 3.4Ghz with these newer Phenoms. I Dont try to get my hopes up.but, Im looking anywhere from 3Ghz to 3.2Ghz. If this board is the :ClockMaster: then i feel much better then! Thanks for the tips guys!! Very much! I will get a better mother board! And save about 60 bucks. This is great! I will pick these up next week! THanks again. Should match up well with my new HD 4850.
  17. Ok, I am looking in to these two products. although, What do you guys think my performance gain will be? Im thinking it will be like night and day. but, I may be wrong. Although i am really CPU limited right now.. With the combo Deal i can get them for 350$ together. So if i got the 9850 Phenom instead It would still come out to be more money$. So this all below seems to be the best buy. but my question is the performance gain worth it? And I will be trying for 3Ghz Overclock with this. Motherboard> http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16813130190 CPU>
  18. I Installed Vista SP1 And bumped my system memory to 900Mhz at 5-5-5 timmings 2.1 volts, And my CPU to 2700Mhz. 4850 is at 675/2100 and im getting 10,000 in 3dmark06. My CPU Does have more in it. Only, my motherboard limits me to 1.35volts. 2,800Mhz gets alot of reboots. This setting is stable. I ran grid for almost 3 hours. and several other apps. Such as Spuer PI. And everything seems to be great. I am posting this 3 days after i changed it.
  19. Im buying a new case to. So, ill be checking this thread often. Ive been using a NZXT Nemesise Elite for 2 years now. I have replaced all the fans 3 times. And i just installed new Hiper fans on it, but, I am just tired of looking at this case lol. I want something different. I like what caintry boy suggested
  20. ok i was just wondering. and, lol no I dont think the PS3 could run vista or crysis. The PS3 Cant even run Grid at ultra settings. Makes u wonder what there settings are on console games. Thats all the PS3 has is a multi core CPU, Other then that its light weight memory, And light weight GPU. And a pretty case.
  21. Hey, I am aware that the Sony Playstation 3 Has a blu-ray drive, And It can play Blu-Ray movies. but, Are The games on a blu-ray disc format? Or are they just a DVD?
  22. I belive Cleaning the fins, and fan on that heatsink, And adding Fresh ArticSilver5. Will proubly drop those tempatures alot! From repairing alot of friends and family members computers, I always noticed there CPU's were running a little hot. I would always apply some Artic Silver5. to most of them, if i had some to spare. Temps would always be atleast 8-10C lower. As in, I mean with stock voltage, ANd stock clocks.) As for overvolting and overclocking, Those P4's Run very hot. You would proubly want a better cooler + ArticSilver5 And when You upgrade to your Core2duo. You will already
  23. Whoa! RAH) < lol. That there, Shows Real CPU limitation, on my behalf. nice score!!. I looked at the virtual mark Of my same system. And it showed up as the same score as mine. So, I guess i will plan for a better CPU. Maybe the Phenom 9950. Or a Intel Q6600. Im glad i didnt buy the HD 4870 now. I was very close of getting it when i was at tigerdirect the other day. by the way, Ive never owned a Intel! lol. so, I guess its about time to! Anything better then this X2. I feel like the Socket A/462 Days again. with a X850XT> (CPU Limitations) lol.
  24. Ok, I ran 3dmark06 And i was wondering is this a good score for my system. I know my CPU is holding me back. But, This is the most i can get, Overclocked. http://service.futuremark.com/compare?3dm06=7860742
