  1. I was thinking about this laptop but i do not know how these mobile gpu chips perform. What can i expect for performance from this thing? how is the 9800gts mobile? or the 4850 mobile? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16834220578
  2. I was on price watch looking for dual core 939 cpus and found an opteron 144 dual core for 80$, and a x2 3800 for 100, and an x2 4200 for 145. Would it be worth it to upgrade my current rig with one of these? I currently have an single core 3800, 2 gigs of ram and an x1800xt video card.
  3. Any one try the hybrid crossfire and the hybrid SLI were your on board gpu works with your regular one? Do they work well?
  4. There is no way he's serious. If he can build the rig in his signature then he can figure out how to play a video game. I surmmize that he ha installed some kind of software on that rig of his, and use's it, what ever it may be, for some purpose, right? He got windows on his rig. If he can do that then he can figure out how to play some video games. This is a ridiculous question.
  5. $235 is to much money. I got about 500$ for MB, mem, cpu, and graphics card, so every part needs to be as cheap as possible. Do the two builds I posted look like they would be good over clockers?
  6. ok here is what ive got so far. I got two different setups. One is a little cheaper than the other. setup #1, the more exspensive one. $491.96 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16813128358 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16814127394 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16819115037 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16820231166 setup #2, cheaper one. $473.97 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16813131299 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16814121289 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16819115037 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16820145214 Both of the video cards seem to oc to 4850 speed based on the reviews here at occ. Im not shure about the mb though. Any thoughts?
  7. OK AMD is out also. I was looking though and noticed the dual cores are cheaper than the quad cores, and from the reviews they seem to oc we ll also. Is it absolutelly neccesary to gt a quad core? Do any games or apps take advantage of four cores yet?
  8. All right the Abit board is out. I was looking around and noticed that the AMD line of Phenom processors is cheaper than Intel. Particularly the Phenom 9950. It is cheaper than the Q6600, and also the AMD boards also seam to be cheaper. Any one know how the Phenoms OC?
  9. I was just over at new egg and saw an Abit board (yes I know they are out of business) , I have used Abit in the past for a p4 rig and was wondering how this board performs. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...82E16813127050R They have an open box version for only 98$. Also any one got any suggestions on memory? Brand ect...?
  10. I want to build a new system, but I am on a low budget. Such a low budget in fact, I need to keep things as cheap as possible. I was planning on over clocking my video card and processor to make up for the low budget, so this is what I have so far. Intel Q6600, I heard these over clock well, and quad core may help me stay future proof. MSI ATI Radeon 4830 OC, I read the review here on occ and this card seems to be quite a winner, over clocks well, and it is cheap. What I am really stuck on is what MB and memory to get. The MB needs to be cheap, and be crossfire capable, but I want it to OC very well, and the memory must also hold up to the OC. I am open to other suggestions for the video card and cpu as well.
  11. Why not just get this brand new one? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16814102770 It is just as cheap after the rebate.
  12. Well, which is it? Two 3870s only cost bout 200$, while one 4870 costs about 260$.
  13. firefox and spybot search and destroy. and do not open suspicious e mails.
  14. You do not even have to tell them it died. They ask if the os is going on one comp only and just say yes. Most of the time they do not even ask. I have had to call them many , many times. Never an issue.
  15. Right on! Dumb people take out rediculous loans, banks issue rediculous loans, and my taxes pay for these idiot's mistakes. I say let the . hit the fan and the market will balance itself.
  16. what is the max resolution for the xbox 360? will I be losing any quality at 720p as apose to ?
  17. Guys i was thinking about getting an xbox 360, but I do not have any money for a large hd tv, so i want to use my monitor. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16824014141 I was just curious if any one has done this, and if so what can I expect for visual quality.
  18. I think that if the founding fathers could have seen what the federal military would become, and the power it posses' they would have outlawed a federal military in the constitution. After al most of what was going on politically in the early days of our nation was aimed at limiting the power of the federal government.
  19. What happens when you must defend your self from your government? That is the whole point behind the right to bear arms. That is what we were doing when we fought King George for independence. Britain wasn't a foreign nation when we fought them, 200 years ago, they were our government. If you read the declaration of independence you will find that it clearly states that the people have the right to abolish their government if they think it is no longer serving them. "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
  20. ALL POLITICIANS ARE RAT BASTARDS. I have no confidence in any current presidential candidate. I probably sound a-political, but I just do not trust any of em. Promise, promise, promise and nothing will come of it.
  21. http://forums.overclockersclub.com/?showtopic=155604 this is a good reason to go with evga
  22. o ok very good. quite simple thanks. Now a new question. Can any one recomend a chipset for ati and or n'vidia?
  23. Can any one give me the low down on intel chipsets. Which ones are xfire and sli ect... Intel's website is rubbish. I could not find any info on their chipsets. The reason I ask is that I am contemplating a new build and am trying to decide on either intel or amd.
