  1. Do you have some retired farmers?
  2. Hey all. Looking for anything better then a 770. My daughters rig is crawling along with my back up 770. 970, 980, 1070 would even consider AMD of similar specs. thanks stephen
  3. Looking for decent 1150 socket quad core. Cash maybe trades.
  4. Hi all. I am on the hunt again. I picked up a motherboard for a family computer upgrade and reviews and thing I have been reading ATI is the preferred graphics for this setup. I'm looking for something in the vicinity of a RX 470 4Gb. Shoot me a pm if you have something similar in performance sitting around. Thanks Stephen
  5. By the way the way MB. Deal did not wok out. Got to be the hardest computer part I have looked for in a long time. Very few available and when they are there snapped up immediately. Ebay seems to be where I might have to go.
  6. Over the last week or 2 my rig has been acting up. I will power it on and within a couple of minutes the fans will spin up pretty high and temps start rising, pull up AIDA64 or task manager and the i7 is at 100% I restart and it will repeat it sometimes or it will be back to normal. System specs. Gigabyte Z97X-UD3H i7 4770K 2x8 gigs G Skill Trident X F3-2400C10 GTX690 Samsung's 950 pro M.2 SSD 256GB. Corsair RM850watt Coolermaster Nepton 240M WIN.10 64bit. Motherboard issue or Operating system. ??
  7. Found a Asus Maximus III Gene with box and access. More board then I need but still a awesome board. $100.00
  8. Why? Because I'm building a sail boat.
  9. Looking for a LGA1156 board. Would like to find one with all the original accessories and retail box. Thanks
  10. Looking for a AMD Phenom II X6 1100T Black Edition or something very similar. Good overclocker is fine as long as you treated it right. Dont need box or stock cooler. Thanks
  11. As always... Thank you and my Daughter thanks you. She now has bragging rights over her brother on who has the Nvidia muscle. Of course we know who has the real dual GPU power in my house.
  12. Well my daughter has decided to go with the desktop for gaming. I have a i5 in her rig so shouldget her by For now. Looking for around a GTX1060 or GTX690 similar VC. Thanks
  13. Looking to get my daughter a nice wireless headset for PC. A reward for sucess
  14. I haven't used them yet to know for sure but I imagine not, especially since you already have two in SATA (RAIDed I'm assuming). Benchmarks may tell otherwise but I haven't really seen any huge difference between the many different SSDs I've used. It's like memory, focus on capacity because the "speed" differences are likely to be negligible in actual usage. The i7 build is in a stack of boxes on my desk. my graphics card arrive yesterday and it is now on my desk. I'm working out of town and the build is waiting patiently I'm anxious to see how the performance is on the M.2 Samsung 950 Pro. Guess I'll find out if the $ was worth it. On the monitor subject I've come across good reviews on the AOC's & crossovers main issue would be warranty support and I'm seeing a lot of complaints about the weak/flimsy stands. They seem to be good performer and good price but I can't stand flimsy shaky stands. All of the suggestions are helping there causing me to read more and become more informed.
  15. High resolution and a monitor that could benefit from the GTX690
  16. I recently built my twins there first gaming computers and I divied up my 2 Samsung monitors between them. So now I'm wondering through the maze of monitors, UGH! It used be be pretty simple. We just looked at response time and hookups. It's a complicate world now. with 4k, 2k, Gsync, WQHD, and on and on. I'm running a i7 with a GTX690 16gigs of mem. and a Samsung 950 pro M.2 SSD I don't game like I used to but I still like to have upper tier hardware. looking for 27" or so monitor with plenty of options and a view that will turn heads. Price is always a concern, I buy many of my components from the FS forums to save money. Would like to stay around $400.00 plus or minus a bit. It does not have to be brand new. Any suggestions?
  17. My Thanks to ccokeman for the cooler.
  18. Would like to go AM for more cooling @ low DB.
  19. Hoping someone has a LGA775 cooler for a quad core sitting around taking up space. Complete setup would be nice. Thanks
  20. Thanks all for the assistance. Ccokeman gave me a great deal on a i7. Thanks
  21. I like the look of a naked chip. How'd they clock. And yes I'm interested.
  22. I like many other is looking for a i5 Haswell socket 1150. Will not lowball you. Thanks
  23. Been a long time since I messed with this rig. It's still running great on with it's X6800 Conroe. It's my wife's computer and I thought about popping a quad core in it a Core 2 Extreme QX6850 Is this going to be compatiable. Specs on the board say yes but some of us oldtimers know about DFI
  24. Never know what you might find in a pawn shop or estate sale even the little mom & pop used stuff stores. If you find something that looks interesting, look on the back for the model number they look like 1234-5678 or ABCD123 and shoot me a pm.
