  1. to me, the xbox 360 is just a souped up xbox. don't blast me about how much FASTER it is, because no ., everything is faster. the Wii is totally new and original. the ps3 has six-axis and the new cell technology and blu-ray. In my opinion, the 360 is just not innovative enough
  2. thanks a lot, that's exactly what i wanted to hear!
  3. I've been looking at this card, since TomsHardware insists it's the best deal anyone can get for a new video card today. Sooo, I've learned that it's pixel shaders are amazing and it's speed is really good for it's price. I also learned that 256mb is bad. I want the card for Oblivion, which i now uses a lot of big tex's, so i was wondering if anyone thinks the 256mb will be enough of a prob to make me change my mind. I'd hate it if after spending 250 i still had to stutter through obliv.
  4. watch for the refresh rates, and resolution
  5. that is fricken awesome. i'm so jealous i'm thinking about bombing your house... maybe... well not really, but i'm still jealous. great job!
  6. alrighty, it seems like the ram is fine, ran several passes of memtest then orthos for a few hours. I'm wondering if the ram could be too fast for the processor. Theoretically, the highest effective ram speed would be 533, at a cpu FSB of 133 (i think), so maybe 667 is slowing it down? what do you think?
  7. they are in dual-channel, and both sticks show up in cpu-z. plus i've run super-pi 16M a few times. I haven't run memtest yet since I get online at the library(like now), but i'm downloading it and plan to use it. i kinda thought if the mem was bad then the computer would crash, i didn't realize that could make it lag...
  8. I am totally and utterly dumb-founded. anyone who read my sig. yesterday would have laughed in mocking derision of my 256mb of samsung no name ram.(pc 2100) now, i've upgraded to 2- 1 gig sticks of gskill running at ddr2 667 (mobo prevents it from 800). the initial latencies were terrible, but i changed them to 4-4-4-10, yet my computer lags in games when it didn't before. it's actually kinda sad... i'm sure there's some yes/no option in bios that i screwed up, so if anyone can think of a problem PLEASE tell me. thanks
  9. This ram is on sale at newegg with a rebate, and seems pretty cheap. OCZ seems to be rated pretty well at this site, but the reviews on newegg weren't overly promising. I plan to use the ram with a c2d in the future, for 3d modelling and compiling (blender and devc++). I don't want the best available, but i want it pretty good. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?...N82E16820227139 thanks for your input!
  10. i'm also looking at this ram, the reviews on newegg aren't promising...
  11. that computer is SICK! i can't wait to read the article! (which i'll do right now!
  12. it's a pain. it physically hurts me.
