  1. It's not just the overdrive test,the pitstop site is starting to look like a badware site.Those flash widgets that crash some web browsers don't help.

    I have to say, I agree with you there. If I didn't know PC Pitstop, I would be more than a little suspicious just after seeing the main page. It's crammed with ads, and never fails to make my browser (both IE 8 and Firefox 3) crash if I linger there too long.

     

    I'd just like to see everything toned down a bit. PC Pitstop is really starting to look a bit like one of those dubious software sites that constantly shoves their products in your face.

     

    I miss the simpler days of the Pit. :geezer:

  2. Why is it called "Summer Wars" if it starts in September? :blink:

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    I'm in!

    Rig:

    AW9D-Max (upgrading)

    Q6600 on water

    HD 3870

    4gb Corsair XMS2

    2 Raptors in RAID 0

     

    I can throw together a second rig, if needed. All I'm missing is a PSU, but I'm sure I can dig one up somewhere.

  3. I'm looking for future upgradability as well as performance. And lack of RAID would really make me sad (I love my Raptor RAID). I plan on getting a pair of new cards for crossfire hopefully later this year, and I don't want to have to buy a new board as well.

     

    How about this board? It looks pretty awesome, and the user reviews are almost all positive.

  4. So, I'm about ready for my next upgrades, and I've decided on a new motherboard and waterblock. Since I'm a little behind on the times, I thought I'd ask you experts what's best.

    The motherboard needs to be a beastly overclocker (obviously), and support crossfire. I also need lots of USB ports, and FireWire.

     

    As for the waterblock, I was looking at the Swiftech Apogee GT. Any opinions on this one, or better alternatives?

     

    Thanks in advance. :)

  5. With all the eye candy turned off, and unnecessary background processes and services stopped, Vista works fine on older machines. But without eye candy, what's the point? :mrgreen:

     

    Seriously though, I think with a new video card, and possibly a RAM upgrade (RAM is cheap, and makes a huge difference with Vista), you should be just fine.
