  1. Thanks Drover..very interesting. Got me on the nose, but missed hubby by a mile. He's pretty much the exact opposite of everything it said about him.
  2. 38 year old Cancer here. My hubby is gemini, (June 1, 1966) so is my daughter (June 13, 1986)
  3. I decided I'm gonna get a new psu as well, but it'll have to wait til later this week. I have plenty of time to get exactly what I want. Thanks for all the input guys....let's just try to keep the insults out of it. Everybody here has something to add to these forums. How you choose to do it makes all the difference.
  4. Yeah it does kinda bite when ya use one set of drivers for a certain game, but another one for a competition.
  5. Download this program, install it and run it. It will tell you everything about your system, including what kind of ram is in there. Everest Home Edition Well I have both a dvd rom and dvd rw drive in my system, so I guess that answers which one I would leave in.
  6. Well I just placed my order. I didn't get a new psu or ram yet....I'll wait and see if I need it first. This is what I ordered right now, can always order more parts later if needed. AMD Athlon 64 3800+ (socket 939, newcastle core) MSI K8N Neo 2 Plat. mobo nVidia 256mb 6800 Ultra (decided to go with the Ultra Sho, just cuz I could ) Was checkin with my supplier on his prices for vapo's too (just in case ya know). Now if it would just get here... Yeah I know I just ordered it, but I want it NOW!! (That's the female impatience kickin in you see there.)
  7. There ya go moon....nothin like being able to drag it through the airport...
  8. You won't need another burner when you put the dvd burner in there because it'll burn both cd's and dvd's. It's your choice. You don't say what kind of ram you have in your system now...just what you're wanting to buy. And I highly doubt you'll be able to overclock your cpu any, if at all, because of it's proprietary nature. HP's don't take kindly to that, and frankly the wimpy power supplies they come with wouldn't hold up anyway. Your best bet would be to build your own and get away from the pre-built systems if you can.
  9. Did I miss something or were those the wrong drivers? 6702??
  10. Nah, XC, I dunno why so many folks make such a big deal out of the noise. It never bothers me. My system right now kinda sounds like a jet taking off and it doesn't bother me a bit, even with 3 systems right here in the same room.
  11. Ok, I used that psu calculator, and with all the crap I'm putting in the new system, it suggests a minimum of 415 watts. I'm lookin at newegg to see what they got..here's some I like. Opinions plz?? http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProductDesc....-167-010&depa=0 http://www.newegg.com/app/viewProductDesc....-153-015&depa=0 http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProductDesc....-148-014&depa=0 http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProductDesc....-101-205&depa=0 http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProductDesc....-103-478&depa=0 http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProductDesc....-
  12. Cool. Thanks. Was wondering if that would be enough to power that 6800GT tho???
  13. Kinda sorta, but not exactly. See my description above your post.
  14. Actually it's a diablotek w/led fan...I got it with the diablotek demon II case. I'm thinkin I definitely need to get a new psu tho. What d'ya think? I believe this is it, only without the second fan or the sata connectors. I had to use adapters. http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/Se...39&Sku=D15-1001 And yes, another wd 160 sata was just what I was thinkin.
  15. I may just do that OneCool. Why spend another $300 if I don't have to. I could use that money for another hdd to set up the raid. Been meaning to do that anyway.
  16. So how about this? Any good? http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProductDesc....-146-845&depa=1
  17. Yeah I've been looking at all the pc4000 stuff. I'm having a tough time deciding between the Ballistix, Crucial XMS, Kingston HyperX, and the OCZ.
  18. I was thinking something like this maybe?? http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProductDesc....-146-930&depa=1 (I've currently got Samsung pc3200 dual channel kit.)
  19. I know I'm asking for it here, but what kind of memory SHOULD I put in it guys?? I'm still not precisely clear on this whole "loosen it up or tighten it up" stuff. So help me out, huh?
  20. Thanks Sho. Hubby and I were just sitting here discussing the possibility of getting a 6800 for each of our systems. So you think the GT is better than the Ultra? B'cuz I can get the GT for a pretty damn good price.
  21. Well I was also contemplating the 9800pro. I can get the nvidia 6800 for a fairly decent price (compared to what they sell retail) but not sure I need that much video power. I'm also wanting the 64 bit amd so I can overclock it.
  22. Ok guys, I've seen enough numbers floating around here to know it's time for me to jump ship. I love my P4, but I'm seriously thinking about building a new AMD 64 rig. (Especially since hubby and I have a wholesaler's license and found a new supplier that can get us the parts for VERY cheap ) This is what I'm seriously thinking about getting ..... AMD Athlon 64 3800+ (newcastle core) Msi K8n Neo2 Platinum mobo What I want to know is how do they stack up to my P4? How much of a performance difference will I see? I'm thinkin with the recent benchies I've been eyeballing, it
  23. Z10N, I have tried to be as nice and respectful as possible, but you are trying my patience. You repeatedly put others down and have a very condescending attitude. That isn't appreciated here or anywhere else for that matter. You have been repeatedly rude, crass, and downright offending to myself, as well as other members here. This is not acceptable in any way. I sincerely hope you do not truly believe the BS you continually spout. I don't know why you constantly feel the need to put down and talk down others. I can only assume it's to make up for some insecurity of your own. I
  24. Jake, I have to say you've got to be one of the most eloquently stated people I've had the privledge to come across. And yes I too have to agree that certain people seem to be more than a little obsessed with money, as it tends to wind its way into almost every post they make. Nobody's impressed and I for one, am exhausted from having to weed through the BS in those posts. I fear if it gets any deeper, I may just have to break out the hip waders. And Invision, there are several people here who do not measure wealth by dollars and cents. You are in good company my friend. I'm sure
