  1. LOL, where did you get this information?

    Look under: Q: What power supply does it require?


    Where did I get it? From the manufacturer of the card that's the one who designed the card...because the manufacturers of the cards sometimes overclock the cards not following nvidia's reference..........but I'm sure you know that don't you?

    here's the info on eVGA own website....feel free to check it out...





    NVIDIA GeForce 7800 GT

    470 MHz GPU

    20 Pixel Pipelines

    400 MHz RAMDAC



    256 MB, 256 bit DDR3

    1100 MHz (effective)

    35.2 GB/s Memory Bandwidth



    PCI-E 16X


    SLI Capable


    Resolution & Refresh

    240 Hz Max Refresh Rate

    2048 x 1536 x 32bit x 85 Hz Max Analog

    2560 x 1600 and 1600 x 1200 Max Digital



    Minimum of a 450 Watt power supply.

    (Minimum recommended power supply with +12 Volt current rating of 18 Amp Amps.)

    An available 6 pin PCI-E power connector (hard drive power dongle to PCI-E 6 pin adapter included with card)

  2. The windows splash screen where the blue indicator goes left to right. Takes about 28 passes again. Back up from 15 :(


    I really don't want to reformat again. I Primed this overnight for 10 hours, did testing of both cores with OCCT and SUPERPI also so I think its stable enough for me. Don't feel like reformatting just to save 10-15 seconds off windows load time. I was just wondering if there was some tweak to make it faster though. As long as I'm not the only one that is loading slow with dual-core, I guess I'm fine with that.


    And what was your question? I only saw that you asked if I was SP1 or SP2. I answered that previously, Sp2.


    I had the same problem as you had, what exactly made the blue bar make 3 passes rather than 28 passes?


    I installed the Nvidia IDE Drivers...

    I know a lot of people here advised against it....but at this point you got nothing to loose....

  3. [quote=dopke

    I followed the procedure indicated in another thread for going to dual-core without reinstalling windows. Anyone know what the problem could be?


    Yes...the problem is you installed windows when you had a single core CPU, therefore, installing the ACPI for single core CPU....so, fater changing to dual core, your ACPI is for a single core...


    long story short...your windows is optimized for single core....not dual core....

    So I'd reinstall it If I were you...

  4. The Updated USB drivers come with Service Pack 2 if I'm not mistaken, and since they are in fact UNIVERSAL, it shouldn't cause the problems you're having....so I'd try out the CAMERA drivers....that came with the CD....not the newest ones from the website....I had a similar problem with my quickcam messenger....and it only worked properly with the drivers on the original CD....go figure...

  5. If your system is not stable all kinds of weird messages can arise...did you try and run a prime95 on both cores?

    Since you changed CPUs that means also changing memory controllers...you may try resetting your RAM to auto on all values except the 4 main values...and then tweak from there...

    I swapped my x2 3800+ for a dual core Opteron 165....I had the "max assynch latency" set in the bios to 6

    once I popped in the new opty...the system didn't boot...lol

    after some tweaking I found out that the lower it likes for max assync latency with my memory is 7.....go figure...

  6. Well, not to sound like an @55, but whether or not it sees 3GB or not you still need a different OS to be able to take advantage of 4GB of RAM.


    Yes, but XP 32 should recognize 3.25gbs.....

    the OS limit is adressability, not identification of the RAM per se...his system basically is ignoring 2 ram sticks.....


    And answering the question of the first message...I have never seen this before, maybe the mobo doesn't like two different manufaturers and memory chips, the only thing I can suggest you is try mix and match the sticks...swap the pair that is in the orange slots to the yellow slots and vice-versa...
