  1. yeah, i'd say it's not quite up to speed with the 9600. if you oc'ed it a bit, it may, MAY match it. but instead of a 4600, see if you can go with ati and go with a 9800 128 meg se...around 145, but the gpu blows the 9600 out of the water! the clock speeds are slower, 325 mhz core, and 500mhz memory, as compared to the 9600 pro at 400 mhz core and 600 mhz memory (i think).
  2. lookie. btw, why are you posting that in THIS thread? OOOOOOOOOOOK. GOT IT ALL LINED UP!
  3. look under your prefs it's there. sooo...i'm 15 bucks under budget. anything else i could use?
  4. ok, getting a silent boost. i'm 15 bucks UNDER budget, and i'm looking for something on newegg. any ideas?
  5. what...the tt silent boost or the aero 7+?
  6. ^^^^^Something for around 30 bucks^^^^^^
  7. how about the aero 7+? looks pretty good. btw, what's the difference between these two hss...(besides brand) http://store.yahoo.com/xoxide/comaae7.html http://store.yahoo.com/xoxide/thtramdp4co.html
  8. i've looked at thermaltake silent boosts...but i don't see anything GOOD in them. they've only push about 28 cfm...about 2750 rpm, but have only 21dBa. what else could i get that's not incredibly loud...nothing like a thermaltake volcano (48dBa). the one i have is about...38 dba...nothing louder than that because my machine is in the family room...and it drives my parents nuts. so suggestions please?
  9. How well does this perform against the radeon 9600 256meg np? i'm getting this card. i may want to softmod it...but i don't know how to soft mod...someone tell me how. (if it's even possible for this card) also, i may not do it...i've seen threads on softmodding, and there's like a 60% chance it will work. soooo. need some advice.
  10. how about i get that card, and then get a zalman heatpipe? which is better, the vantec iceberq, or the heatpipey thingie? also, one last thing. how does the radeon 9600 pro 128 meg compare to a radeon 9600 nonpro 256 meg?
  11. ok. last call. if anyone doesn't think that i should get a PowerColor R96-D3G ATI R9600Pro 256MB DDR 8X AGP Video Card ( https://www.accupc.com/itemDetail.jsp?pid=VPCAR96256P ), then please tell me otherwise. what i plan on doing, is 'flashing' the video card, like mist said to about a 9600 pro, and then i'm also getting a zalman heatpipe to go along with that, to overclock a bit (bit, hah). btw, how much possible improvement can i get out of the radeon 9600 np with a zalman heatpipe?
  12. i'm looking at benchmarks, and compared to my video card, the radeon 9600 is pretty close. for 3dmark 2001se, i have about an 11000, and the radeon 9600 has an 11900. it it really that worth that much more points? edit: in 3dmark 03, it has about a 3000. with my card i have a 1400. is that right? i'm running dx9.0b (latest version i think) http://www.hardwareanalysis.com/content/article/1671.2/ in that article, is the 9700 the 256 meg version or the 128 meg version? if so, i may pitch in a bit. EDIT: i just made an 8400...i checked everything, ram, display modes, vsync...i don't know what's wrong.
  13. how well does the radeon 9500 nonpro 128 meg compare to the radeon 9600 non pro 256 meg? i know that the 9500 has 8pixel rendering pipelines, as compared to the 4pixel rendering pipeline in the 9600's and above...
  14. and 'flash it'? not sure what that means.
  15. Hey all, i need some ideas for a something i can get for christmas. my parents granted me 200 bucks for christmas, and i just can't think of what i want. suggestions please? video card better than my pny gf4 ti 4600 128meg 8x agp? more ram?
  16. yeah, i would say to set the clear cmos jumper to the clear-cmos option, and if he knows nothing or just a little bit of computers, he won't know how to fix it.
  17. what i used is just truck door edge molding, you can get it at just about any auto store like pepboy's or something...but i don't know about the uk the cool thing about this is that it comes in like black, gold and chrome, etc.
  18. yeah yeah, i know. big deal....just wanted to let everyone know that i didn't desert you guys, i just had some really big problems i had to assist to that lasted about 2 months. I LUB YOU GUYS!
  19. well, the mx series weren't built for performance, as you can probably tell. the FX series was made to replace these bad cards, and as you can see, they didn't do the best job at it now, as i have said many many times, before you go with a 9600, a good card to consider is the radeon 9500. ati discontinued this a while back, as they realized this one mistake: they put in an 8 pixel rendering pipeline, which is twice as more as the 4 pixel rendering pipelines in all of the other radeon cards. i haven't seen benchmarks for the 9500 against a 9600, but i'm guessing it will surpass it. fortunately, you can still buy these cards, just not from ATI. you can get them from newegg, pricewatch, etc. they actually run a little more costly than the 9600 pro....lemme look
  20. for like the 5th time, go with an slk900U(900A) and a 92 mm vantec tornado. just......if you don't care about the noise....DON'T CARE ABOUT THE NOISE! these fans typically can push around 120 cfm, and run about as loud as a vacuum cleaner. from what i've heard, if you put the fan faced down and plug it in, it will HOVER! that's how much air it pushes heh
  21. yeah, i just finished glueing the whole thing, and i'm gonna fix up the buttons later. i wish i had read this thread earlier, about the velcro, but for this all i have to do is just snap off the front piece on the drive tray.
  22. is it possible to stealth your drives? if not, i'll just paint the covers of the cd-roms. or just completely cover the drives by putting a door over it...
  23. yeah, those nibblers SUCK!! that's a definite NO-NO in my book just cutting with a dremel and a jigsaw owns.
  24. i've got the kt600 chipset...i don't see anywhere where i can tweak my fsb multiplier. also...what are those "Unlocking" kits for? btw, sorry for this unneeded thread, as you can tell i know nothing about p4 overclockage.
  25. kk, been a while since i've posted here.... i've got a friend, and he's got this new P4 system, really nice. it's proc. is 1.8 ghZ stock, and he "claims" he's got it overclocked to 2.9 ghZ. at first, i was kinda like...mebbe. but then he told me it was STOCK COOLING! i almost slapped him in the face for saying something soooo stupid. but then again i don't really know about p4 overclocking....is it even possible? i saw somewhere it was completely locked, like the fsb multiplier is locked on an AMD. someone prove him wrong so i can show him this thread btw, remember... STOCK COOLING
