  1. Yea I actually noticed the power supply wattage too...kinda bothered me. How can I tell how much those cards use (voltage)? Doesn't really say in the specs.
  2. I'm trying to find a new video card for this computer: Pavilion p6212f The computer is 'pre-made' and has on-board video already. According to the specs I linked, it only supports PCIe x16, so I searched newegg according to that and found these cards: Card 1 Card 2 I basically just need help making sure everything will go together well before I go ahead and order one. I've never ordered a card for a MB that already had on-board before, so I'm trying to be cautious. Thanks =] *edit* what's the difference between PCIe x16 and 2.0?? The specs say that the MB supports only x16, but it doesn't specify 2.0 or not, so what I assumed was that it does NOT support 2.0
  3. Alright thanks a lot dewd, ill check the mem out I tried assault on CSS in an empty server, FPS went up by like 10-15. The first time i tried it in a server with about 15 ppl avg
  4. Alright thanks a lot mate =] And yea 333 is an option, but will it work? lol Not sure about the video card prob still hehe
  5. UPDATE... Usually I appreciate your advice Nate, but when I tried the 400 on the mem clock instead of 200...NO BUENO. My computer said noooo thanks, so I had to gruelingly reset the cmos lol However the manual to the MB seems to say 400 would work...but I dunno if im reading the chart right
  6. Woops, I'm running CS:S 1280x1024 at avg 35-40 FPS on the map cs_assault.. feel like it should definitely be more with the newer card. And I got 112 FPS on the video stress test Ill go change the memory real quick BTW when OCing my voltages were changed from [CPU] 1.35v to 1.39v [Mem] 2.60v to 2.65v
  7. Alright I've stated this before in some other posts, but now I have a full computer overview thanks to a program called "Sandra Lite" [siSoftware] The problem: I have a newer video card, but I still get crappy FPS gaming wise.

  8. Do you think if I OCd my CPU my video card would run better? Speaking from my other post, nate http://forums.overclockersclub.com/index.p...howtopic=170286
  9. Aah I see, thanks to both of ya =] At least everything matches up fairly well. Usually I mess something up with the wrong PCI slots or something.
  10. I'll but it just as soon as I have the money =p and in the mean time I can dream hehe. So here's my new build [my old build should be visible on my profile]: MB http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16813131402 CPU http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16819103674 Memory http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16820227495 *edit* http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16820227496 GPU (already bought) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...amp;Tpk=n9800gt Harddrive http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16822136320 PS - I've had my Thermaltake for about 3 years, so I went with Thermaltake again. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16817153100 *edit* http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16817139002 Case http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16811129061 And that's that! Hows it look?? PS. Decided to work out the fans later =] but I think I'll only need one for the CPU
  11. Alright well, I run Windows XP 150G Harddrive [sata] I have an Acer LCD 19" wide, 1440x900 res is almost always what I use Nvidia and graphic settings in general are usually set to max [unless its a newer game] That's about all the rest i guess. Or did you mean the rest of what I want? =] Other games I play are Heroes of Newerth, Steam games in general [TF2, CS, HL2, Gmod, etc], and 'smaller' games. Honestly, CSS is the most 'intense' thing i play regularly. *edit* DUH somehow I forgot all about the PS.. It's a Thermaltake, I wanna say 300-450W...that's a guess though *edit* Double checked the res on CSS, it's usually 1280x1024. I tried 1024x768 and the FPS only went up about 20 (from 30 avg to 50 avg) I think i'll make a new post with the hardware I want as well.
  12. Oh yea im an idiot haha i linked that AM2 CPU and not a 939 =p And yea I dont even see 939s anymore really ;/ Oh well looks like i have to get a few new components. No prob, just no money lol
  13. Yea i knew my comp was outdated, i just figured i could throw $50 into a new dual core and get much better video that what im dealing with. I dunno about the PCI port thing, is that possible? That the slot is causing my video to be dulled down, not the cpu?
  14. Here's what I have currently: ABIT KN8 SLI Motherboard: Supports AMD Athlon 64/64x2/64FX Dual core, 939 Socket CPUs [not exact board]: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...-225R-_-Product AMD Athlon 64 CPU - 2.2GHz MSI N9800GT Video card 2G Memory I need to upgrade my CPU because apparently it can't keep up with my newer video card and support its full potential [40 fps avg in CSS and general dx9 games] So my questions are: If I upgrade to the 2.9GHz dual core http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16819103279 will it support the 9800 card fully? If the 2.9GHz is plenty, will it support dual video? [two 9800s] Will I need more memory? Etc. And basically, are there any other problems with doing this Thanks a lot =]
  15. Sweet, I'll check that combo out. Thanks for the feedback :> My brother has the same case and it's done really well for him, which is why I'm getting it, so he'll probably be able to help with cabling.
