  1. I currently use a GameXtreme psu by OCZ tech, I am interested in Mushkin psu, I am aware of your success in the memory market. However I have not come across any of your PSUs. While I have no imediate need for a new psu at the present time. I would love to try out one of your psu's for the sake of comparison, and to make an educated decision on my next psu. This mutually benefitial, as I can promise an ubiased view, based on performanced, availability and price. I would like to create a formal review of the forementioned psu, detailing its performance as well as aesthetics. If Mushkin is interested please let me know. OCZ made a great transition to PSU's, I wish you guys luck as well. p.s Hey Where's my sig? lol
  2. System specs below, I put on Windows XP Pro SP2, and for some reason takes 20 seconds or so, on the Windows is starting up screen, then moves on to welcome. I had a couple BSODS, prior, I am assuming this is happening because I have alot of USB etc, connected to the computer, Anyone experience something simular?
  3. Peltiers are quite complicated, in setting up. Due to possible run off into the mobo etc. I don't recommend it unless you really know what you are doing. Gains are high if done properly, however heat dissapation must be very good otherwise like it was mentioned temps especially ambient will rise. 400 Watts of Peltier fun? What were you cooling lol? I used 200 watts, and though that was overkill.
  4. You guys have temp range for air yet? I am using standard for now, however would be interested in real life temperatures. I haven't started the build as of yet.
  5. Lol, your a card bro. GG, later.
  6. Yes, but that also encourages, people to sell coupons, which are free etc, and not meant to be sold really. Makes sense, but I prefer waiting instead of supporting illicit commerce .
  7. Ya I been to Slicker, XP etc, its that 30% coupon thats killing me lol, and I refuse to buy a coupon O_O. Guess I'll have to wait unless someone is willing to pass it down.
  8. Hey, Well I am upgrading, trying to look for best deals possible (given) Anyhow the monarch coupon for opty 165 was good, is there any more, or does it still work? Also I am looking for a Dell 30% or along that nature coupon, anyone recieved it thats not using it? PM it to me if possible. Know any irrisistable coupoons , let me know ! Later.

    Update Time

    Would anyone have an ETA on the PSU's? Perhaps OCZ themselves may answer. I would definitely wait, assuming they hold the same standard of quality as did the PowerStream 600W. The Chipset, I am not particularly worried, both are topnotch, the Nf4, I owned for quite a while now, see sig. I seen Conroe performances, thus I agree, hence why I mentioned that, I will consider dual core again, only after Conroe hits full force. In my opinion AM2, is merely a sidestep, until they get K8L, K10 ready etc. I considered going Opty, but budget considerations, it will depend on how much funds I will have avaliable. Right now the 100-150$ range for procesors is more likely, unless someone wants to donate . I do alot of enconding, and gaming, however for the benefits, I believe will only show in an year or two, until a dual core is really necesary, once that becomes a reality then I will upgrade to dual core. If I spend 120$ now, means I can save the rest, when dual core really makes an impact. Thats my mindset at the moment. Budget is quite tight, university calling, and scholarships don't cover housing etc. I used the raptors before, very good, but a raided Hitachi can almost compete. Again its a price per benefit issue. For space, I use a external cluster, so space isn't an issue at all, all thats going on the harddrives are programs, data goes to the cluster. Mack, pretty much deadon, and your suggestions I considered prior, however I want to focus on cost per benefit. My goal is to run any 3D application, game etc, on highest settings, no FSAA, or AA, FF, I won't need them, as I plan to run on highest possible resolution.
  10. It's that time of the year to upgrade. I got a good idea, on the next build; however it's not finalized. So I wanted some input from the street. Alright, I pretty much narrowed to another DFI, most likely an Expert, or CFX3200-DR. Or maybe an Asus 8N Premium, or Abit (Pricewise) Though I am confortable with the DFI, and able to overclock it much easer now, me and SLi-DR understand one another . Anyhow, I need the budget to stay under 1500$ for phase one. I already have a case; Wavemaster, and all accesories and cables. Here's phase 1. 1. PowerSupply: I wanted another OCZ 600W, however I might have to step down to the 520w, or if anyone can recommend an alternative for not more than 145$ 2. CPU: This time, I think I am going to wait for the dual core after Conroe hits full force, new tech is inevitable, so I am sticking to a 1.8 ghz Venice, provide alternative if applies, price range: +/- 120$ 3. Motherboard 185$-240$ If I stay SLi, I am sticking with with GeForce 7xxx series, ATi, X1800, the new 512mb X1800XT looks hot, and nice price, I believe non crossfire though they have software crossing. 4. RAM 270$ Given, OCZ Platnium, same as before, provide alternative if you see fit. 5. Video Card Geforce 7 +/- 7800 GT, or 512 Mb X1800XT (selection on Gfx will also force mobo decision.) 6. 2x Harddrive 155$ Hitachi Deskstars Sata 0, alt? 7. DVD Burner 60$ Given......... Now monitor, I need one that is Widescreen, I was looking at the Sceptre Naga III, or if I blow the budget a Dell 24in W LCD. Later. Also provide good deals, and or coupons etc if you find anything. *Later
  11. Yes I must say you done a heck of a job Sarbs, competition is starting to get to another level. I am amazed at the speed that you pushing these renders, whenever you can spare some tips, let me know, we can chat . I use 3DS. I am in a little dilema, I lent my cd to a friend, and for some reason 3DS won't instal any longer. I am trying to get a replacement, but thats costing me time. Anyhow Let the battle of 3D comence, Love the George Foreman idea, I have one at home, I thought about it, but I was like it would never work! I was wrong heh! great job, Hope I can bring ya some competition , in any shape or form. I might have to resort to 2D if I can't get a replacement.
  12. OceanSeasforMe:Why is Morrowind Elder Scrolls III such a cool game ? Because you can kill people, steal their clothes, sell it to them, and they wear that dorky useless hat. Killing guards is fun! Why did I recently find a copy in the 100's of games I acquired and get addicted to it ? Boredom........ There's plenty of good games, however I find gaming used to be better back then, then now. Or maybe I am just playing 2D fighters for nostalgia . When and how do you beat the internet ? The internet has been beaten, I heard the boss is pretty hard though
  13. Momma: I played Diablo II, for years, raised 16 chars, I believe 6 of them to 99, back when I had more free time. All had stormshields, and their equivilant ultimate uniques, aka zon had windforce, sorc used winspike, although I had oculus, but I was PVP, I prayed for 1.10, to kill the hacked items, since I was legit, however they also killed the game in my opinion with incredibly overpowered runes, and killing leech etc, basically killing 1.09 competative pvp players. And my good old stash of 120 SOJs lol back when it was currency. Anyhow I would love a D3, however I highly doubt it, since the disbandment of Bliz North, Hellgate London looks promising, but dunno. My Diablo hopes are pretty much gone, and sicne D2, haven't played that type of game (DS i plated offline only), as well as my faith in blizzard dwindled. Their quality, and attention to detail is great, however making P2P, and going agaisnt the idea of B.net is what displeased me. Sure they need to make money, but still hehe, but I hate monthly fees. They limited Diablo I, to one channel, killed star craft, to stop the server lag, they limited amount of units further, which destroyed the good old Carrior massing etc, as well as other combos, which led to low unit massing again, and even that can't be done, I guess I got used to playing previously so its hard to change. SC was fun as well, had fun in early ladder, and vs kbk, but it was killed in my opinion as well. We can hope for a D3, but dunno doesn't look good heh, you can check out some good info www.diabloii.net. AG: Tylenol + Niquil + Headache = Dragon Flower International.
  14. Vector, I know what you were saying, and yes your point is valid to a good extent, however I don't see a problem in asking for some focus, as I tend to get off track easily . In the end, I think Ag has some valid points, as well as I think I have some valid points, and in some areas where we mutually disagree as well. @Vector great idea, I had a simular idea, on the first contest, but I lacked the skills necesary to get the job done, so good job. I am working on my own too, I tire of emulating other ideas, I will emply my own, which has to do with DFI, ull see it soon.
