  1. can this be bought yet? the links from the review are all for 7800gtx's...
  2. I have to agree if they where trying to copy your idea they f'ed it up... yours looks nice.... theres just adds alot more stuff to the case that really does not need to be there...imo
  3. i just figured i would be the odd ball the sides with holo about there being some cases there seatbelts can kill. first off i wear mine all the time and would rather take my chance with it on then off but one of my best friend would probably be dead if he had his on when he was in a roll over. He was in the passenger seat and when the truck rolled he somehow got thrown between the driver and the steering weal.. the passenger side roof caved in and took off the top of the seat. a rare case but they do happen.
  4. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?...82E16814122207R its a refurb but will be alot faster or go new for 200 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?...N82E16814125193 or look at an x800pro ot x850pro
  5. I ordered a nano it should be today but i think someone at fedex f'ed up because it went to alasak to japan to memphis, TN , back to alask, then back to tennessee
  6. you can overclock the video card easly without cooking the laptop, i have one specs and 3dmarks are in sig edit: i think i am using 76.50 drivers from http://www.laptopvideo2go.com/ to overclock. also do you know what screen you have? if you have the samsung uxga i can give you some color currection settings that will make it look alot better. to see what screen you have use the FN and turn the brightness down on the screen. there are 8 settings and the samsung will change brightness for all 8 but the LG screen will not change brightness from like 3-4 or something like that dont rember exactly
  7. the 9300 is very great laptop for the price i paid 1350 for mine a few months ago. the gate way with the x700 will get another hour or more battery life but wont game as well so depending on what you would rather have.
  8. imo if you are goin to spend the money on a cooler you might as well get the 256mb 6800 and just overclock it alittle with stock cooling
  9. well we need to know a bit more like how big is to big and how much battery do you want??? But here is what i would recomend to be able to play games with. Dell 9300 with the nvidia 6800 Dell Xps2 or m170 with the 6800ultra or 7800gtx Sager 5720 with the 7800gtx http://www.sagernotebook.com/pages/noteboo...roductType=5720 The 5720 would be my first choice then any of the dells. the 9300 i am guessing would get the most battery life but i am not sure how much power the 7800gtx uses in the m170 and the 5720. also if you go dell get it through the outlet or wait for a 30-40% off coupon. Edit: All of those are 17" laptops if you are looking for a smaller on i think the best video card is the x700. also www.notebookforums.com normaly has good reviews on newer laptops
  10. i would take this one over it anyday http://www.sagernotebook.com/pages/noteboo...roductType=5720 might not have an amd but it will get alittle better battery life still has the 7800gt and is alot lighter.
  11. are you banned from all servers or just that one? if it is that one that have a friend log into the server and ask and admin whats up and to unban you if possible..
  12. how much does he want to spend? for about 600 the only thing new i can think of is a dell 6000 with the ati x300 if you look at the delloutlet or wait for a 750 off 1500 or something like that you can get them cheap.. The x300 is not great for gaming but it will play some low end stuff. also how big does he want it? so people consider 17" laptops small enough to take to school while others want a 12". im to lazy to see what is out right now but for $600 there is not much. if he want to game look for the x600 < x700 = 6600 or < 6800
  13. http://www.slickdeals.net/#p6372 http://www.slickdeals.net/?pno=6372&lno=1&afsrc=1 enjoy I just noticed it says 7800gt and not 7800gtx.... is there a big difference?
  14. I rember seeing a post awhile back about someone that put all his computer parts inside a fish tank and he filled it with some kind of no conductive oil that would keep the cpu cool. You could not put real fish in it but it looked cool. He had the little colored rocks and some of those pirate decorations at the bottom, might be worth looking into since you would not have to keep anything alive.
  15. i dont mean to stick up for dell cause there tech support does suck but them sending someone out to have it fixed on tuesday is fast if you think about it. most other laptop dealers would take over a week to get the comp fixed and alot of them make you send it back to them for repair.
  16. amd 3000 7800 1gig ram dvd burner few fans Edit: if there is somthing that would work better that is still under $90 go ahead and link it. thx
  17. ENERMAX Whisper II EG565P-VE FMA(24P) 535W Power Supply http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?...N82E16817103512 is this a good psu for under $90? was looking at the 450w modstream but i figure i extra watts might be good.
  18. what part of colorado are you in bigred? im about 2 hours from denver... might be movin there in october
  19. ok i changed a few parts mobo: DFI nF4-DAGF http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?...N82E16813136160 PSU: ENERMAX Whisper II EG565P-VE FMA(24P) ATX12V 535W http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?...N82E16817103512 ^^^ is that a good psu or is there something better for under $90? Ram: OCZ 2-3-2-6 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?...N82E16820227031 the ram might be pushing his price limit but he can always use his old 512 ram for a month or 2 and then upgrade. also what 3000 core overclocks the best? might as well make it run as fast as a 3200.
  20. Hey, friend asked me to upgrade his rig he has $900 and a few things we can take from his old comp like dvd player, hard drive and 512 ram. here is what i came up with on new egg http://secure.newegg.com/NewVersion/WishLi...tTitle=New+Comp what do you guys think. the only things i am worried about is the mobo never used chaintech before and will the cpu slow the 7800 down alot? im guessing for gamming the 7800gtx and 3000amd would be faster then a 6800gt and like a 3500amd.. he is using a 2600 socket A and a 5800gt right now
  21. Hey, i am looking for 1 copy of medal of honor allied assualt and 2 copies of breakthroug! :thumbs-up:
  22. go with the 7800 it is cheaper and almost if not as fast as the sli
  23. Sylo

  24. im interested, does it come with a hs and fan? and is there any warranty left on it? and how high does it overclock on air?
