  1. Thanks! I will refrain from buying ram now.. i might as well upgrade my whole setup. tell me, what is the craze about core 2 duo?? what happened to amd processors?? i thought they were faster... thanks guys!
  2. yeah I want more speed I will buy a newer kit if I have to.. I just don't know which one to look for... I do not overclock, so it's not a problem if it's not overcloackable. Thanks

  8. Well not really... there is another huge problem... my system has been running strong for a while, now i have 3 solid LEDs! it boots but no video! I tested my monitor with my other rig, and it worked fine... I removed my 7800gt and put it back into the PCI-e slot... then i tried 1 mem stick, keyboard and cleared CMOS (10min) and still no screen! any suggestions?? again, i get 3 SOLID LEDs, 4th blinks for like 2 seconds then goes away... and NO beeps on boot! I wonder if the heat just messed up my computer! any suggestions junkie? THANKS SO MUCH sorry for thread crapping.. lol
