  1. edit: wanna trade anything for it?
  2. I have a Fully functional jl audio 500/1 amp. It has Cosmetic damages but internally works fine. Was powering two 12" cd4 audio subs that I do not have Hooked up any more as the subs just suck. I am asking $230 OBO or if interested in trade for a subbwoofer 12" or 15" at comparable price would be willing to trade! Amplifier works fine just has cosmetic damages. i have not tested the preamp output section but everything else works fine as i didn't have a need for the preamp section on amp. The controls on amp all work and still can be used with flat-head to adjust them. Some are a little abused but they all work and are easy to turn. RCA inputs are a little loose at least with the rca's i was using, meaning RCAs have a little play when connected but inputs themselves are sturdy. Pictures For trades looking for subwoofers give me some things you would be willing to trade subwoofer wise mainly looking for 12" or 15" subs. Brand isn't a huge deal but I had a re audio subwoofer before and loved it so if you have one/two and are willing to trade let me know.
  3. nice to see amd back in the 4ghz world. the g2's are showing some promise in the oc'ing world.
  4. private trackers will always be much better for speeds, and selection imo. TPB is good but its kinda hit or miss with speeds. and as far as demanoid and oink sites like these are going to be replaced quickly, infact oink has already been replaced. There are already many sites just as good as demanoid that have the same amount of users just a little less known as they are more private than demanoid was. imo demanoid wasnt a fully private site. the new oink site imo is a lot better than the old oink for speeds the selection isnt up there yet but once the members get back onto the new site it will get a much wider selection.
  5. the cool thing about it is its great for a simple file server. you can have w/e amount of drives and sizes and windows shows them as one drive. Alshouth the smallest drive is the most amount you can transfer at once, So if you have a 40 gig drive you can only transfer 40gigs or less at a time.
  6. Restoration quick google search the other day, as i needed the same tool. It worked not very feature rich but worked.

    Anyone have any suggestions to rpg's much like the elder scrolls series. I cant get enough of these games but at the same time im looking for something new. any suggestions?
  8. being an amd fan I really hope amd can really outperform the intel's out currently and the penryn. Sadly ive seen some early benches using the server version of the phenom and it doesnt look to good. But well have to see when phenom samples get out. I like amd more than intel dunno why just do so ive been hoping that while im saving for my next rig which if i had the money now would be a c2d or quad core. but hopefully by the time i save up amd comes out with a beast.
  9. try some older versions of vc drivers. dont try newest or beta. I had some problems with my dual monitor setup and my vid card. I installed older drivers for me like 6 versions ago and it fixed the problem. If that doesnt work you can try tweaked drivers and in some cases they raise fps and benches. extreme g ive had good luck with those.
  10. ah my bad i was saying thermalright but typing thermaltake lol. now the question is to get the money for this. Will eventually get a 8800 or better, but for now the 7800gtx is doing its job. I mostly do video encoding so a beefy video card isnt a priority.
  11. This is what im looking at... Mobo: Abit IP35 Pro CPU: C2D E6850 FAN/Heatsink: Thermaltake 120 as far as i know is the best cooler out there for air any other suggestions? Memory: Still up for deciding(need something good at oc'ing and stable) Video Card: 7800gtx evga(using it in current build) one for now as i dont deal with gaming that much. Harddrives: Going to use my current raptor drives then and run them in raid-0 2xseagate barracuda 1tb 32mbcache drives for now then later add 2 more will run those in raid-1 Power Supply: Will remain my 700w gamexstream OCZ The case im still up for suggestions/deciding as im using my current cheiftec dragon which is green lol, im debating looking for a case though that has more room for harddrives as i have high space needs. Sound ill be using my current soundblaster gamer soundcard for now prob upgrade that later. So now look at this build and help me find weaknesses and or bottlenecks. I know that my vid. card doesn't have dx10 but i use xp 64 and i plan on using it for a while so i have no need for dx10 for now. Edit: btw i didn't know exactly which part of the forum to put this into, so sorry if its in the wrong forum
  12. if you have a program called cpu-z check and see whats that is telling you. Otherwise download it search google for cpuz and download the latest version then well go from there.
  13. sounds like a nice comp you just built there. Get it folding, and lets see some benches!
