  1. Go with the 8800GT. No competition there, and you wont need to mod the BIOS...Just find some card here/OCN/OCbay/fleabay/other-retail-store and stick it in the empty PCIe slot - You do have an nVidia chipset, correct? Edit: the only difference with those two is the cooler (and possibly a few minute details, but that's not important atm). As Andrewr said, you want to try and get the same memory amount for both (ugh...bad sentence) - ie: 512+512, 640+640, 320+320, etc. If you don't know the amount of memory in the card, just download and run GPU-Z .
  2. Wow....I was folding all last night on Vista while redownloading L4D...Got one WU done, all others died to NaNs. I guess I'll be using the console and win 7 for now on. Do we only need one WU done?
  3. I kinda like it - It'll take getting used to, certainly, but it's nice
  4. Looks like I just ran across this in time. Will be folding (under error_404) for OCC
  5. +1 If all else fails, you can try adapting one that's meant for forums (invisionfree, etc.) I like the new icon - It's a hammer, no? The sites starting to look very trustworthy, and with the items listed slowly increasing, you should be serving tons in no time
  6. Thing is, your board is perfectly fine, and just needs the correct BIOS. Try burning it to a CD... If all of that fails, a floppy drive is certainly worth the price of a new mobo
  7. You don't necessarily need a new chip - try copying a BIOS file (make sure it supports your CPU!) to a floppy drive and reboot. It should recognize the BIOS file and reprogram - it looks similar to the Asus boards that do the same this. This saved my . at least once Just make sure you've got a internal FDD
  8. ^ You reminded me...I gotta set one up. Your Q6700 tempted me
  9. Don't know if you took is so, but I'm not trying to insult you. This is *really* tempting...
  10. I hope this is the right section... Anyway, it's an auction site dedicated to hardware and hardware alone. I'm not affiliated with the admin by any means, I just thought it was certainly cool enough to share with you guys. They also offer free banner ads at the bottom for any overclock-related forum, which I believe OCC is so Bosco, waiting on your approval! Right. I also got that email, so I guess I'm back OCBay.
  11. This happened to me before....Are you sure you're the only one using your username?
  12. Depending on when this happens (deadlines and such), I'll be in if I get my i7 rig up and running. I'll probably do poorly in the graphics - based stuff...Dunno what card(s) I'll be running, but I know it won't be impressive ~Error
  13. A lot of what has been said is really sound advice - I'm in no way a person with a ton of life experience, but please do try to view it from the other party's side. Your dad may (or may not) be annoyed at the way he he handled his life, and is trying to prevent the same thing from happening to you - I don't know how effectively. You two (or three) may just need some time apart - try staying at your girlfriends for a while, or take a private vacation. The very opposite may also help - put a major amount forward for a *relaxing* trip for your family (or just you three), and make sure it's made of things you know they enjoy. I'd stay away from alienating them at all costs, but it may be necessary at one point, just try to make it up, for both their sake and yours. Hooray for OCC advice B:)
  14. I think I like him! (Has nothing to do with the quoted part) Don't up any voltages unless you need to for stability. I'm running AMD atm, and my rig is out of commission anyway...But just clock it up, and when things get unstable, feed it more juice! (Within reason, you've got a 45nm chip. So no more than 1.4v under water for 24/7. Feel free to correct anything I said - I'm an AMD guy this generation (wrong one ) IIRC, the Q8x00's don't clock so well. Sell it and grab the older, amazing Q6600. Look for a chip with G0 stepping - They're not hard to find used, and I've seen 4GHz under water, and well over 3 stable for 24/7 use. ~Error
