  1. i did a 3dmark again at 3ghzs and stock card and got this http://service.futuremark.com/compare?3dm06=7321412 which is much better than befor. but i still think it could be my psu causeing some slowness still. will it cause that because of the rails from being 11.86 @load? like if i put my cpu at stock i could overclock the card more is that a psu problem? or? whoops not right on 3ghzs yet problee whould score 10k. but i think this system should atleast score 11k to 12k?
  2. hmm my cpu is pretty much overclocked to the max 3ghz cant realy go higher... but i think i might have a problem with the psu not keeping up.. because i tried with 2 sticks of memory and crysis stayed runing while overclock didint crash even at 660 core and 1090mem but 3dmark06 did. so put everything at stock even cpu and left the gpu overclocked and it passed.... and i check my psu with a volt meter and at idel its 11.98 doesint move but when i run 3damark it goes as low as 11.86..... aint that bad? psu is pretty decent to its a hiper 580watt tho has 2 12volt rails a
  3. ya im gona leave the card at stock realy doesint need overclock anyways hehe maybe it will overclock better when ati tool and riva tuner will be supported with it but till than stock it is:) ya drivers thats what im thinking causing the white dots sense they dont get badder and the card is stable while playing the game and no other games suffer the problem like call of duty 4 pretty sure that will show white dots if there was a problem with the card:) just hope amd ati releases a new driver very soon ... lol
  4. so far the card is great tho got couple problems. when playing crysis inside building on some walls there theses little white dots i look it up on online and peaple said its overheating tho this card maxs out at 60c sense the fan is runing at 75% too 100% now so it cant be that. than they say its from overclocking which i dont have it overclocked... do you think its a crysis bug or a driver bug? i realy hope the card aint craping out on me.... also other games dont show theses dots. and another thing seems like its not that good on overclocking unless ati overdri
  5. wow that looks realy good and acts like diablo 2:) cant wait for it to come out:) i thought diablo series was over lol looks like i was wrong and glade i was wrong hehe also glade they kept it top view:)
  6. its 8815 3DMark.. lol wish it was 11k in this system. maybee i could get close to 10k with overclocking and puting my system back to 3ghzs:) also found a fan fix i post the link just incase someone needs it if they have a 4800series:) http://forums.guru3d.com/showpost.php?p=27...amp;postcount=8 at 65% fan speed its at 43c aready lol so it seems like a cold card to when the fan is runing. just tried 100% fan speed sounds like a jet lol
  7. k got the Visiontek 4850 and what a card it kills my x1900gt lol heres the 3dmark 06 score i guess its not bad sense this is socket 939:) http://service.futuremark.com/compare?3dm06=7280674 whould be alittle higher because i got the cpu at 2.8ghzs 3ghzs was unstable for some reson today which was stable for months lol. but so far i could play crysis on everything very high on 1680x1050 and i whould say the fps is in the 20s avg:) and tried call of duty 4 and its realy smooth on 1680 4anti everything on the highest it doesing drop below 30 anywere so far mosty allways 40s an
  8. i was looking threw pages and saw that the Visiontek comes with a lifetime Limited Lifetime Warranty. does that meen like 10years from now that it dies which i know will be outdated lol they will cover it? if thats the case think i be buying that brand:) doesint come with a rebate but still what beats lifetime support:) also just seen that bestbuy has it for the same price as newegg and they have it for pickup so problee gona get that card from bestbuy:) weird bestbuy ony sells that brand hopefully i could get to bestbuy either today or sunday.
  9. hmm so sapphire and his pretty much aint good than? i just thought i should stick with sapphire sense i aready own 2 of there cards and didint have any problem with them. than i saw the his that comes with the iclear card thing which goes for 79$ by itself problee doesint do much or at all but its free:) and that his screwdriver looks like it whould be handy lol so it seems like i was leaning more to the his but not sure... lol sapphire was looking at first sense i owned them befor and saw in a review says it comes with a 39$ game rainbow six vegas 2 tho it doeisnt say it a
  10. cool:) i problee get the 4850 than sense when i look on reviews its even playing crysis 1920x1200 with a average fps on 29 to 30:) which on 1680 its 40fps:) also which brand should i go for? i was looking at saphire sense my x800 and x1900gt was that brand. than i saw his i never had that brand but might give it a chance:) which one do you think? also saphire one guy says it comes with rainbow six lost vegas 2 which it doesint say nowere on newegg comeing with a game but maybee on the box it does and the his comes with the his iclear card which seems not to do anythi
  11. thats great to hear:) i knew this Opteron still have kick in it:) also what about the 4870? any problems runing that? just incase if i get ahold of 300$ by than:) problee wont need it sense the 4850 is a monster aready and seems to play everygame out at 1680 but its allways good to have extra power
  12. hello:) i was thinking of geting the 4850 soon problee in couple days but i was wondering will my system in my sig handle it? like bottlenecks? i know they problee gona be one but i hope its not huge and cause problems. i was waiting for the 4870 to come out and try to get that but i know forsure that problee whould bottleneck it badly will it? but my main consurn is the 4850 sense its in my price range 200$ i herd the 4870 is like 300$ which is cheep but cant afford it at this time about 3 weeks ago i was aiming for the 3870 but than herd the new cards was comeing out and the
  13. update:) got the new ram in today and it booted:) but showed a No timer tick interrupt so at first i couldiint get pass it so i holded down fn and push all kind of buttons and it booted to the bios and i went in check to see if anything ok than saved and exit and now it doesint show that error no more:) so now all i got to do is to refor mat the hdd i put in from my old compaq that needs repair later. doesint like the xp on it because its from compaq and drivers it blue screens when it hits winxp screen. but im glad i got pass that timer error because in the dell
  14. will do:) i just hope it works before that happens tho because it makes a good portable compaired to my monster dell 9300 hehe realy dont need that kinda power when im on the road:)
  15. im pretty sure its the memory hopefully lol sense everywere i search for the 2 lights im geting is memory problem. and the 1100 is known to not work with anything higher than pc2100 wish i whould of read the reviews before i bought the memory... but if it still doesint work with the pc2100 i just got off newegg. its going right on ebay problee could get atleast 80 or 100$ for it sense it has 2 new ram sticks and a new powerbrick and seems to be a good battery.
  16. ok got the memory in today and installed it now the num light and scroll locks blinks than shuts down... so atleast i know its not the bios. than i saw in the reviews on newegg the memory i bought which is pc2700 and the dell comes with pc2100 and peaple said they couldint get theres to boot with pc2700.... tho some have. so thats problee the problem now... i looked up the lights stats and it pretty much comes up as memory so hopefully when i get the other memory it boots up... but the change in lights makes me have hope for the laptop still.
  17. they had the note pasted on the top of the lcd lid case. i was thinking about the bios tho the laptop comes on with caps light on and other lights than turns off by it self which meens it has no ram in it. so i dont think the bios is bad if it knows the ram is not installed usely when i had a bad bio flash on one of my other desktop machines it turns on but i had to turn it off on my own whouldint do anything. hopefully the ram will shead some light lol
  18. hmm guess nobuddy knows:( guess its worth the 20$ to see if its the problem.
  19. i found this system couple months ago siting out and on the top of the lid theres a note that says bad 32k chip. so i tried to boot it up and it came on but shut down in like 5sec so i check the memory and theres was none installed. so im gona buy some memory tonight which is ony 21$ shipped from newegg. but i wanted to get some options from the pit befor i do so:) about the bad 32k chip note that they had on top of the lid. it sounds like memory to me but not sure.
  20. i got alot of games on my external wd ibook 500gb and ony problem is the loading times but isint bad. i whould have all of them on my internal but thats pretty much full which is why i installed them on my external:)
  21. for one zune is a great player thats why i have one zune 30gb got it like 2months ago and i use it everyday like 6hours a day with no problems even steaming radio!! and 2 apple ipods are also good i was gona get one but than i saw the zune which has the stuff i needed like the radio tuner and bigger screen because i watch movies on it while on the go. also trying doing the hard reset like everybuddy saying because when i first got my zune i had to do the reset from holding the menu button down at first i thought it was doa but it just needed reseted:)
  22. so far its still up and runing and going strong:) runing pretty fast to:) orderd a heatsink and fan for it because right now i have it on my desktop with my xp90c just siting on it lol. also ya it is rdram pc800 kinda funny that the ram has more mhzs than my updated systems in my sig lol just wish they were cheeper i was gona get more ram for it to make it 512mb ram right now has 256mb got them for free. but one site wanted over 200$ for them i was like wth lol than found another site that wants 29$ for 128mb and 62$ for 256mb ram which is still alot but how well the s
  23. nope 423 but has the same thing and on http://www.tomshardware.com/2005/11/23/pc_...101/page19.html says it needed. but even after that it still did the same thing. than i tried 4 sticks like i tried befor and it booted right up:) but not detecting the other 2 sticks ony showing 256mb ram in slot 1 and 2 but it needed 4 to boot up wth? but so far its working booted in the bios and readly to install windows on it. tho after that have to order a heatsink fan didint come with one right now i have my xp90c siting on it lol
  24. nope ony a blank screen. but heres alittle update i pop in 2 rams in 1 and 2 slot im pretty sure i did this befor i dont know lol but now theres no beep but there still no screen. but im useing a psu without a 4pin the plug next to the cpu socket hopefully thats why its not showing a screen. in about 20min gona try one of my other psus with a 4pin plug and see if that helps its that plug that is on newer motherboard thats looks like a pcie plug. is that needed? pretty sure my main system didint boot up befor when i forgot to plug it in after i installed the heatsink.
  25. ya forgot to say i reseted the bios to says config on the motherboard and says jumper 1-2 normal and 2-3 config and no jumper for recvry. it seems like the cpu is working because you could feel the heat on it. i even tried to take the battery out and still the same but it seems like it was trying to do something diffrent took like 3sec for it to beeep and the fan turnt off and came back on. than when i put the battery back in it did it like normal. wish i had a extra socket 423 cpu for it if that didint work than i know its the motherboard.
