  1. I have done some searching and cannot find the answer. What i am wondering is if I will have any problems with a pci-e 2.0 video card on my mobo. Current specs in sig. The vid cards im looking at are the : VisionTek 3870HD pci-e 2.0 16x and the PNY 9600GT pci-e 2.0 16 x ...Will my board have any issues such as crashing in games or what not. Any experience? Thanks all
  2. well, i can get 235x10 max outta my cpu w/ out BSODing on windows boot, with everything set to auto and stock, i hear my memory hits a wall around then, but i've heard people take it up to 250, im very new to over clocking, what would i need to change also to help boost this? i've even dropped the ldt divider to x3, but havent tried the cpu/fsb multiplier
  3. iamkoza, building a new Rig is something i do not plan on doing for a while, but upgrading to a 7900gs is something i have been thinking of doing for a while now, becasue i have heard great things about them. i am considering jumping up to one from EVGA, and getting a new PSU, and using the eVGA step up program when the 8000 mainstreams come out. sounds like a good idea to me.
  4. My Current CPU is @ stock, and yeah i was thinking of 170 for the 10x , i hear my ram brickwalls at 225 according to reviews,i have not over clocked this cpu becasue i plan to sell it once i upgrade. but since i wont have a noticably large performance loss, i may just spend on a new GPU when they hit, my PSU puts out 18a per 12v, which is what 36a total? the 8800gtx and gts require 30A, i generally go for the more main stream vid cards, i dont do super hard core gaming, so when the 8000 mainstream models come out ill get one of those,would i really need a new PSU in that case? or were you speaking as far as a 8800gts/gtx for a new PSU, my PSU should handle over clockiing a 170 no prob i would think. I dont udnerstand where you are coming from on needing a new PSU for what im looking for, its on the reccomended list for mid range set up. An overclocked slightly 170 and a midrange vid card would be considered in that range woudlnt you say, or is that more along the middle high range?
  5. So far right now im torn between getting a opty 170 or 165 socket 939 to get that extra boost outta my system for newer GPUs and upcoming gaming. becasue i know the cpu i have right now is great, but will have a bottle neck with newer gpus to come, thus why i want to get a opty or a 2x1mb l2 cache x2 4400 or 4800. Although 939 is aging, is it worth buying a CPU for this board, or buying a AM2 board and cpu later on, only thing is with AM2 i would need new memory also which is costly, what would you guys do in my situation, just get the 939 opty and call it a day or wait and shell out more money for a newer setup..? thanks in advance.
  6. As a mainstream user, I do a tad bit of gaming but a lot of desktop processing for now, would i notice a great difference between a x2 3800+ and an opty 170? stock wise, Some say i should look into upgraded my GPU first, but way i see it is i should get a better CPU, that i can overclock , and upgrade when the dx10 cards come down , and have the better cpu ready adn over clocked for less of a bottle neck.
  7. Well, right now its passed christmas, and money from those odd relatives keeps flowing in, and i've decided to buy a opteron 170 or a 165 possibly, then ebay my 3800 x2, but what im wondering is, on my ultra d with respective bios in signature, will it be a simple drop the opty in clear cmos and maybe re install windows and boom there i am , is there any major bios updating or configuration i need to do to get these opterons in this board, i know they work "un supported" but does it take any magic or special knowledge to do so?
  8. Raphie, so you saw a noticeable difference between the 3800 and the 4400?
  9. currently i have the 3800, wondering since christmas is around the corner and all the folks will be throwing cash at me, would i notice a huge difference going from a 2x512 to a 2x1mb cpu, in other words going up to the 4400, in games and multitasking, the x939 x2s are only 189. 99 on new egg. thanks edit. also looking @ the opteron 170 and 175, would those do better than a 4400? im looking to get into over clocking , and want a cpu that can handle it well. Will my current bios work fine with a opty 17?As well as another question, what is all the stepping raves about on the new egg reviews? thanks
  10. Excellent detail on bottle neck, i see how it works now, though like ones stated before i will definatley notice a huge jump from 6800gs to 8800GTS, as far as over clocking the cpu, i need to study up some on how to do it.
  11. hahah, i type like i talk, fast and non stop.
  12. So, i am looking to upgrade my Video card, between lines right now though, i want to buy a 8800 series card, but from what i hear, i will have a bottle neck becasue of my CPU. My system is no where near crap, if you look at my sig, im what some would consider a mainstream gamer, i have the set up to definately handle a 8800 POWER wise, but according to some, i would bottle neck w/ my cpu, can anyone explain to me how i would notice that bottle neck, or even at all? Also, becasue of that bottle neck i am almost driven to pick up a 7900gs or gt to hold me off until the main stream version of the 8000 series come out, kinda like a 8800gs or 8600gt or something a long those lines , for DX10. 7900gs from what i hear run like champs, my card does the trick, but i want a little more for oblivion, i lag here and there due to 12 piplines and slow gpu. What are some of your guy's and gal's reccomdendations. Thanks in advance Cheers
  13. Well after some seaarching and reviews and money i had available,got the G.skill's on great deal, sold my corsairs on ebay and came out nearly even, the G.Skills, booted just fine, clocked @ 2.5-3-3-6 and mem tested like that perfectly over night no problems. runs great,thanks for everyones advice and input, couldnt do it w/ out these boards. hooyah.
  14. So i currently own the rig in my sig, and looking to upgrade memory for around the 250ish range, im looking to go to two gigs, right now i have one, but i want more than DDR 400. i hear that the ddr500 and possible the ddr550 will work fine w/ this board? if so any reccomendations, or any guides on upgrading past the ddr400, will i need to do any over clocking or changing of settings other than timings and what not to get it to post w/ faster memory? let me know all reccomendations. thanks
  15. Andou, i thought about slipstream, but im more familiar with just hitting F6 to install raid drivers, that worked fine for me if you have a floppy, internal one USB didnt work.
