  1. Unreal Tournament's gonna win that again (last time was in 1999)
  2. i had this problem with the vista install... i went into the bios and disabled the nvidia raid and sata raid controllers because i wasn't running anything in raid. the windows xp and vista installers can read normal sata drives fine for me.
  3. whoa, i just installed vista and all the problems go away. they're still there in winxp though.
  4. here's one i had bookmarked: http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=82074
  5. i tried to use acronis disk director to split an empty partition and apparently there were some bad sectors that the disk check didn't turn up (how's that, i don't know). so instead of a 233GB -> 200GB(files+freespace) + 33GB(freespace) i wound up with a single 120GB (all freespace that was available) partition in the original's place. there's a missing partition (with all the files) that isn't showing up. Acronis shows the partition as the original 233GB with 120GB free but Windows shows a empty 120GB partition. anyway i can get it back? aside from sending the drive to a recovery place... i don't think anything that important was on there, but i'm not sure
  6. Just flashed to the latest BIOS and no dice. =
  7. just a heads up for those who are getting these cards, or already have them. apparently there's a laundry list of bugs/problems with the 8800 series cards and various games (see nvidia/nvnews forums). my own problems have been with framerate drops and stuttering in UT2004 and according to the nvidia/nvnews forums, this happens in all the Unreal 2-engined games. the stuttering problem allegedly is fixed in Vista, though i haven't been able to test that yet.
  8. considering how cheap you can get an 8800GTS right now (i got mine for $300 shipped off eBay), i wouldn't spend the $500+ on a GTX. what games will need it?
  9. Replaced my DFI Expert with an Asus A8N32-SLI. Reinstalled XP without any problems, then tried reinstalling Vista on the other partition. Install went fine, it rebooted... then just hung at a black screen immediately. Never even made it to the little scrolling green bar. Any ideas? I tried installing again while loading the IDE drivers and disabled RAID/SATAlink in the BIOS (even though they're XP drivers) and it still got the black screen. Reset BIOS to all defaults, and still the same.
  10. hm, i gotta get rid of it soon, i need the money. how's $60 shipped sound? (if you can pay immediately via paypal) pm me if interested
  11. hm. what should "SB to NB Frequency" be set at? it's at 2X by default. but i changed my FSB to 250MHz
  12. lol, its in my sig. a8n32-sli. booted up with the 8800gts no problems
  13. hm. how much voltage do you think i could run with water cooling? if i can keep it cool at 1.5v (which i have in the winter with the tornado turned up all the way), it'll run stable at 2.8GHz. i've had it at 2.9 but it would fail prime95 on one core.
  14. yup, tried that. i think it's something with the CMOS/BIOS, but i can't be arsed to try a proper long CMOS reset, or a new battery/bios chip/whatever. how does $75 shipped (USPS priority w/insurance) sound? i have the original driver CD and i/o faceplate. has a proper retention bracket but the screws are of the wrong size, so hope your heatsink came with some
  15. CCBWE 0534SPMW what's the most you've gotten out of it, or heard of anyone getting out of it with air and/or water? what do you suppose the best results on water would be?
