    should I buy DFI?

    I would kind of disagree here. I pretty much just plugged in my components and booted up. I didn't really do any tweaking yet, and my board is as stable as a board can possibly be. I would say just get it, because then if you want to OC later, you have the ability, but you DO NOT have to OC this board to make it worthwhile. Considering that any other quality board is 100+ dollars, I'd say it's worth the neglible price difference.
  3. I would say get whatever one you want to. They are both great PSU's. My sig will tell you how I felt.

    System built

    Well, it is up and running, and I'm using it right now. Build was flawless, no proglems. I'll need to slipstream SP2 into my XP cd but there are a few things I need to do before it'll work Haven't tried OC'ing yet, and probably wont for a while, I'm just happy to have a comp again.
  5. Put it all together, and everything works so far. Running memtest right now, I'll post back once it's finished. Now I have to find my XP cd. Oh, should I worry about flashing my bios before I install xp? or is it alright to do it later? Also, what's the difference between the orange and yellow mem slots?
  6. So, I'm formatting my drive, and it is showing up as like 130000 MB and it is a 250g drive...any ideas?
  7. Can I use all 250gb's even if it doesn't show it? or will it actually limit me to 130? I am using the comp listed in sig...just booting it up.
  8. I haven't installed any OS yet...I'm formatting for the first install. And it's plugged into my motherboard....so that's my controller.

    Connect3D X800GTO 3038

    I finally get my ram today, I'll let you know how the unlocking goes.
  12. http://xtremesystems.org/forums/showthread.php?t=77205 has a thread about this mem. I guess I'll be the one to order some and let you all know. After almost driving myself insane about whether or not to get 2gb of mem, I decided what the hell. So, I placed the order from newegg today. Should have it by friday, and since that is all I need for my system now, I'll report back once it is up and running. wish me luck :nod:

    New Athlon FX55 SLI Rig -advice needed-

    I would got the x2 route. I would have gotten one if the price difference between the 3200 and the 3800x2 wasn't over 150 dollars.

  16. He means that running memory at 200 vs 250mhz isn't that big of a deal unless you are a benchmark junkie.

    New Athlon FX55 SLI Rig -advice needed-

    Why not get the new expert? and I cannot fathom spending more on video cards than what it cost me to build my system in my sig :drool:
  19. So, before I do anything with my system (mem will be here monday ><) you would recommend flashing to the latest bios?

    Upgrading from P4 to AMD64

    The only thing I would change is the GTX to a GT, cause I'm a cheapo. :nod:
  22. This is a ridiculous post. How should WE know what your OC ability will be on a product that is exclusive to you? :confused: That's like me asking you how fast I can run. You may say that most people can run 10mph, so that is the average, but that doesn't mean I can run that fast. Maybe I'm a badass and can run 20mph, so your guess was way off. Or, I could be like 500 pounds and can't even run. So, whether your memory is normal, fat, or speedy, we don't know. :shake:
  23. DFI orange +yellow and aqua do not mix :shake: But, I don't care, I'm not into the lan party neons and side windows. clean and classy is my taste.
  24. I guess I should rephrase my comment. I didn't mean to say that the HZ's weren't OC'ing at all, but I had read a few people who claimed that they weren't stable much above 250. I didn't mean to imply that it wasn't possible. I guess bottom line is that like any OC'ing hardware, the same model has varying results. So, if you absolutely want 250 the HZ is the only way to go. If you want to save a few bucks and get a kit that will PROBABLY get at least 240, and likely 250, then ZX is the choice. And finally, if you want better looking ramsinks...get the HZ :nod:
