  1. I don't think your cpu is the problem....the RAM could be...

    If you're running a 290 HTT and your RAM is on a 180 divider that means your RAM's final speed is 261MHz I don't know how good these Gskillz are, but I'd lower the divider to 166 which would give your ram's final speed of 240Mhz...and that your RAM can certainly run at....


  2. Thanks for all the help!...as far as the PSU, it's the original PSU that came with the case, a 420W. I am going to go back to the store and mostlikely get a Ultra X2 model, something over 550W atleast. As for the power above the PCI-E, according to DFI tech support, it is not necessary if you don't have anything to plug it into, especially if you are running one vid card. Thanks again fellas!!...ill post the update if i get it up and running.

     

    For the money you're gonna spend in the Ultra you're better off getting a fortron ..

    Also...the fortrons seem to be only ones that have NO issues whatsoever with any models of Lanparties....some people here had cold boot issues with Seasonics and OCZs...Sometimes the Liberty from Enermax...the only ones that I never saw a complain with the expert were the fortrons...


  3. Well its will show you that you have 3.25GB.

     

    The system use at work, the PC I am using atm is only showing 3.25 though it has 4 GB in it. It may also require a divider.

     

    It has nothing to do with dividers...it has to do with the ability of windows xp 32bit to address more than 3.25gb of memory....only 64bit OSes can use 4gbs or more...


  4. :shake:

    maybe even find a decent component you don't need and sell it to go up to a 170. :nod:

     

    Thanks, but that's not an option..lol

    opty 170 goes for CAN$500

    don't have that kind of money laying arounf nor can I sell anything since I don't have anything to sell...lol

    it's really either the x2 3800 or the opty165.....I want go as high as possible on Mhz....so...that's the reason I posted asking for advice...


  5. Hey guys...I sold my old x2 3800 as I was't able to push it further than 2.5ghz....so I want to have a dual core proc capable of at least reaching 2.6ghz....and don't know if I should try the opty or have a better lucK with another X2.....

    any opinions?


  6. apparently some are offended by either me holding a hockey stick, or CCCP

     

    since people are offended easily, I will take steps to not joke with anyone, not say anything offensive, not do anything offensive, I will just be a plain no-personality loser who makes no waves and makes no statements and probably won't be much help anymore.

     

    That's really a shame...because me and a lot of people came to love this place and a lot of that is a reflection of your personality, which may not please everybody (and it never will since there's always someone who doesn't like you, me or somebody else in particular) but at least is direct, intelligent and even sarcastic and a most people like it that way, I personally may not always agree with you, but hey, that's the beauty of difference of opinion, but me a lot of people here respect you for that...I don't know what kind of implication this so called "new era" will bring to the people of this forum, let's just hope it doesn't get dull like so many other forums out there...

     

    Like they say...the bigger the symbol you are, the bigger a target you become...

     

    Anyway I'm sorry to hear that you had trouble with the avatar...but I leave here my support...and I'm sure I'm not alone....

     

    Cheers
