  1. hello all. I am having a strange issue, i was running a XFX 8800gts xxx edition 320mb card that i liked but it was having a little trouble with dragon age on high settings, so i decided to upgrade but i didnt want to spend much seeing as i play most games on my 360, anyway so after talking with a tech at XFX i decided to go with a hd 4770 512mb for $114 at newegg, i got the card yesterday and the first thing i did was run 3dmark on my 8800gts with the stock clocks then OCed, I then put in the hd 4770 and ran stock clocks on 3dmark....The new card actually scored less then my 8800 when it was OCed when the 8800 was stock the 4770 only scored 500 more marks... i dont know what the deal is i ran driversweep and removed all drivers in saftey mode and installed the latest ati drivers, now if you look at tomshardware video card comparison chart http://www.tomshardware.com/charts/gaming-...Score,1533.html there is over a 3000 mark difference,which i would be happy with, i am about to send this card back, can anyone think of something i might be doing wrong ...thanks

  6. im looking for a sata hdd to replace an old ide 80 gb hdd iw as hoping to spend like 45 or less shipped if anyone has anything ...thanks
  7. yes i tried it without changing the pci clock and tried with it changed, i had the same problem each time
  8. for some reason when my cp is oced to 2.8 ghz everything works fine but the linksys pci wireless network card, yet if i drop the oc just a little down to 2.63 it works fine? i tried changing the pci clock (i dont even know what that does) to 133 with my amd 4000+X2 at 266 x10.5 but that didnt change anything im using a asrock alivenfg6-vsta board any ideas Thanks
  9. how can i use a separate cable for each drive when there is only one ide slot on the board? I did get it figured out, i set the hdd as the master oh and then i plugged the ide cable all the way into the mobo, i cant believe i didnt have it all the way in lol Thanks peoples
  10. i just got a new setup for my G/F an am2 chip and board but she has an old maxtor 80g hdd and cd burner that both need to run off the same ide cable i have never messed with jumpers on the drives before to set up slave and master, but i set the cd drive as a master by setting the jumper where it was marked for master than setup the maxtor hdd as a slave according to maxtors website you just need to remove all jumpers for it to be the slave. with that done when i boot the computer it says please select a boot drive? now her hdd has xp on it already but i was going to do a fresh install but in the bios it sees the hdd as the slave but it does not see any master drive wich is what my cd burner is supposed to be any thoughts thanks
  11. 2.8 would be nice....i ended up ordering the asrock board, now i just have to wait till she opens everything on christmas to put it together:sad: thanks for the input peoples My G/f is going to be very surprised
  12. we live together so im always here to fix it, i wanted a budget build for her and i wanted her to see a big difference from her 32 bit barton 2500+ thats stock at 1.8Ghz and she only has 512ram lol, i want this computer to stomp on that hard enought that she'll even notice a difference, ofcourse 4x more ram will be helpful but i wanted to go up quite a bit from 1.8ghz for cheap
  13. ya i looked at the one but on of the users commented there wasnt any voltage settings for cpu or memory, thats going to limit me, I take that back after reading all the reviews, theres a guy with the same chip and memory that got his at 2.6, that boards a good option, just one other problem, this board like many of the newer board only has one ide slot, i need 2, one for the hdd and one for the cd drive, i guess i could pick up a cheap sata cd drive
  14. how would what be ..lol i think you forgot the link, i also need to know if they have good oc settings in the bios
  15. I am looking for a cheap am2 mobo with decent onboard video that overclocks well, I know im asking alot here but Im upgrading my G/Fs computer and i wanted to spend like 60 bucks max on the MB, i putting in a x2 4000+ brisbane with 2x1Gb g skill pc 6400 and was hoping to oc it to atleast 2.5Ghz. She doesnt play any hardcore games, just things like bejeweled and crap like that so i dont need a board with top notch onboard video, any ideas? Thanks
  16. Im trying to get the metal square heatsink reattached to my cpu, im not talking about the heatsink with the fan but the silver square that is connected to the green board on the actual chip itself is on, i tried to super glue it with no luck, anyone have any ideas Thanks
  17. Im looking for a board with decent onboard video for a AM2 chip, not great video but some thing a guy could play newer games on in low res, If he gets into the games he can just buy a card later on, im looking for one under 100 bucks. Thanks for any advise
  18. I need a little advise on what speed memory to get for a AM2 chip im building a pc for a friend but i havent even looked into the differences between ddr2 and ddr ram i run a 939 system myself. any way im either getting him a 4000 brisbane or a 4200 windsor chip but what would be the best speed ram for that newegg has some seriously cheap sets of 2x1G of ddr 2 but i dont know what to get. im looking to spend like 70 bucks for 2 gig and im goin to slightly OC his chip.. Thanks for any advice for example im looking at this Patriot Series eXtreme Performance Model PDC22G6400LLK Type 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM Tech Spec Capacity 2GB (2 x 1GB) Speed DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Cas Latency 4 Timing 4-4-4-12 Voltage 2.2V this should oc nicely
  19. Abit an8 sli amd 3700+ 2.75Ghz 2x1gGB G.Skill HZs XFX 8800gts xxx 320mb WD 250GB sata ocz gamestream 600w psu oh now my sig shows up
  20. i was playing stalker and out of nowhere my computer just shutoff,There was no beeping noise from the pc and the game wasnt hung up or anything everything else stayed on.i had to push the power button on the case and it booted right up,i have never had that happen before. Any ideas..thanks
  21. I dont want to upgrade my entire pc for awhile..i have been eyeballing some 939 x2 chips though
  22. thanks for the info..i know i can take this chip to 3.2Ghz with the ram i have i just havent had the need...I guess until now.. would a 3.2 Ghz run better with this card or a [email protected] 2.6Ghz, I know a benchmark is simply that, i just know most people were getting like low to mid 9k on mark06 with a stock clocked gts and i figured i should get 10k before i OCed the XXX card.Im just trying to justify my 285 dollars.I havent played any games yet because my nephew has my F.E.A.R, and i just got stalker in the mail today, so i get to see it in action tonight.No one thinks its odd though that i took up the clocks from 580/1800 to 656/2000 and only gained 100 marks, I guess i should try it with 05 and see what happens between the 2 clocks,I did score 33,000 something on 03...yay
