  2. Looks good. Only thing I see is maybe you can get a 640GB hard drive for around the same price onsale, like the WD black
  3. All of the 640GB's are sold I have 1x 1TB's left forsale OK, on to the firmware. All of the 1TB drives have CC1H firmware All of the 640GB drives have CC1F firmware Seagate's site says by the SN's that all of the drives are not affected All of the 1TB's are made in China, all of the 640GB's are made in Thailand
  4. Its not necessarily true, some reviews have the 55nm drawing more power in certain instances
  5. All the Hard Drives are sold! These are New Hard Drives, not refurbs.

  6. Yes stay away from SLI, get the best single card you can afford. If your going for bang for the buck then the GTX 260 is about as good as it gets. MSI OC'd version for $160AR or XFX for $170AR with free 4GB usb drive, Either of these by themself will blow up anything at 1680x1050 Also you can get a better HD for a like $5 more
  7. Hey nice tip, I some assembly lube here and have been thinking about lubing some fans. I was going to dig and try to find some oil I had from electric RC car motors, but will try the assembly lube.
  8. What does that mean?? Booted windows fine? or ran Prime95/IBT and passed?? You dont mention raising the northbridge voltage, which I think on that board is called something like FSB voltage or something? You will likely have to raise this and play with GTL's also to get best results. 1st thing is to run memtest or P95 on the 360x9 settings to make sure that its stable, if try some changes and retest or co back to stock and test to make sure its stable. This is to have a solid base of where you know its stable And yes the recent Q9650's will do 400 in there sleep, or at stock voltages. The best board for 500FSB is the Gigabyte UD3R/P as it holds the world records
  9. 4670, great on power consumption also.
  10. Yep just fine even if you OC the i7. I believe thats one of the lowest wattage drawing video cards so your good to go, unless you get a different card
  11. Yep, take a look above. Get a GTX 260 core 216 it beats or equals the 4870 1GB and lately can be had for $200 then a $20 MIR Also I'm not up on the AMD mobo's but you should be able to nock $50 off of te one your eye'ng now and still have a great board Also back to the HD, look at this one. EDIT: just noticed the ones above, prob a better deal although 320mb platters is faster last I knew? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...-L0B-_-22136218
  12. Nice! At 1st i just saw your sytem in your sig and "540w at the wall and was like thats way high and made no sense, Then I saw your counting everything, monitor/speakers/printer. Makes much more sense. Speaking of this, how about a quick test only hooked to the PSU, run OCCT psu tester see what it says round about and note your OC your running? Mine pulls ~350w at 3.6Ghz and 4850 OC'd as far as it can go. Sorry for the hijack, The Gigabyte boards love 45nm quads like Q9550, so if you can splurge its worth it and do more work per cycle. Most new ones run ~3.6Ghz on stock voltages, which is where the Q6600 is maxing out and will pull like 40w+ more, so over the long run if you keep it for 3yrs or so it will pay for the difference especially if you fold and have the comp on 8hrs or more per day.
  13. If you plan on using that HD as the only HD, get a little faster one, like a Samsung spinpoint F1. Its cheaper last I knew and faster so it will boot/load faster then the Green which is more of an energy saving storage drive. Also to save some $$$ and get equal or better performance, look at the EVGA GTX 260 core 216 as they are the best deal currently and cheaper than the 4870. EVGA has basically THE best warranty as far as video cards
  14. Ha I have the same HP printer, the one in the middle of the pic. I'll have to dig out my camera, hold on for pics Ok here's my work area aka room
  15. Gigabyte will rma it no probs, you'll have it back in 2-3 weeks. I sent one in and had no probs with them.
  16. Nope dont waste your money on memory unless you need to add more for some reason. Just wondering what your needing more performance in? Games? Like has been said a 260 would help some but not huge, but the video card is prob the lacking item in your setup. I think a faster HD would be most noticeable, 640GB WD's onsale currently at the egg for $65 shipped. Or SSD but I'm not sold on it yet(well price wise). What exactly do you want to speed up? games?crunching?
  17. I'm on to you now, lol Getting new fans next week, if the temps are cold here, sure they will be in MI, lol. I'll step outside and give this Q9650 some juice. I dont think I will have as pretty of pictures and colorful scarf and mittens though, lol.
  18. The benefit would be having sound over your DVI/HDMI cable, so if its hooked to your TV or something you only have one cable for video and sound
