  1. Found a cpu cooler at SVC for $29 but not sure if it will work with this rig. Thermalright SI-97A
  2. Found some ram need your thoughts on it. CORSAIR XMS2 1GB (2 x 512MB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1000 (PC2 8000) Dual Channel [email protected] at Newegg for $150 or mushkin 1GB (2 x 512MB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 667 (PC2 5300) Dual Channel 3-3-3-10 @2.1 - 2.3V at Chief Value for $154.
  3. These are my thoughts so far. AMD Athlon 64 X2 4800+ Windsor 2.4GHz Socket AM2 $257.99 DFI LP UT NF590 SLI-M2R/G Socket AM2 NVIDIA nForce 590 SLI MCP ATX AMD Motherboard - $197 eVGA 512-P2-N637-AR GeForce 7950GT 512MB GDDR3 PCI Express x16 KO Superclocked Video Card $293 Western Digital Raptor WD740ADFD 74GB Serial ATA 10,000RPM Hard Drive w/16MB Buffer $152 CORSAIR XMS2 1GB (2 x 512MB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1000 (PC2 8000) Dual Channel $150 OR mushkin eXtreme Performance 1GB 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 667 (PC2 5300) $147 Antec Neo HE 550w Power Supply $69.99
  4. Just bought an Antec Neo HE 550w from Fry's for $70(from PSU guide)I hope this was a better choice if not I may still have time to stop the order. Thanks for the advice.
  5. What if I used the X-Connect for the mobo,atx,graphics card and the generic for for HD's DVD's then there is no connection between the two power supplies would that be a better way to hook up? I've read the power supply guide and someday will get one from it but I won't be able to anytime soon.
  6. When I first got my Ultra-D people in the forum told me that my PSU was no good. Since I had bought it just before I got the mobo I couldn't afford to buy another, I had a PSU doing nothing so I hooked it up to my computer. It runs the ATX 4 pin plug, my HD's DVD drives and my lights. The X-Connect2 runs everything else.
  7. He's not too interested in OC'ing but I might a little. Won't be able to talk to him till after Tues.
  8. Sorry, didn't mean to hi-jack your thread I thought I was starting a knew one. I will try to delete it.:confused:
  9. Has anybody had any experience with this cpu. AMD Opteron 154 Venus 2.8GHz 1MB
  10. He's a die-hard AMDer from way back, no way he'd change that. Won't be able to get in touch with him until after Tue.
  11. I found a AMD Opteron 154 Venus 2.8GHz 1MB L2 Cache for $275 is this a good cpu and price or is this a better buy at $299? AMD Opteron 180 Denmark 2.4GHz 2 x 1MB L2 Cache
  12. He's a DR. and he has some medical program that need them.
  13. A friend asked me to build him a rig for $1200 to $1500. He is not into gaming but needs heavy duty graphics. I'am not sure whether to go with am AMD x2 or opteron. How much should go towards the cpu? I already have a case.
  14. I had similar problems, what I did was take the side off my computer and put a big fan beside it which helped. Now that winter is on it's way and it is cooler in my room I don't need the fan. Try it and see if it is an overheating problem.
  15. Looking at picture #9 I can't tell if the 4-pin molex connection and the 4-pin floppy are line or load connections.
  16. The guide says "If your using a revE cpu then you should be using bios 510 or newer to fully support your cpu.. Most boards are still shipping with 310 which will allow you to boot up and flash to a newer bios." Mine is a revision SH8-E4. Where would I find a 510 or newer bios?
  17. The date is 11-14-2005. I have tried to OC it but the smallest OC crashes the system. I found a thread here some time ago about bioses and I thought they recommened upgrading the stock bios but I can't find it again.
  18. How can I tell which version and revision I have and which bios will work best for it? I would like to do some OC'ing.
  19. Yes I can bypass the chkdsk but then it goes to setup is restarting then hangs on a black screen. I have tried the repair again 3 or 4 times and it is the same thing. No, the computer has run flawlessly for along time.
  20. Tried to do a repair from the windows disk but it was terminated before it finished, now every time I boot it does a checkdisk then says setup is restarting then hangs at a black screen. How do I get rid of the chkdsk and the setup?
  21. It has a standard openHCD USB host controller.
  22. When I bootup I get a message saying "there are no hi-speed usb host controller on this computer"
