  1. Cool it also looks like its about $180 cheaper consumes less power ... Damn.. Now she is going to have a bigger monitor and a faster comp LOL the price we pay for love
  2. Thanks man ive been looking at a few others but its hard to know what reviews have not been skewed by $$. http://computers.toptenreviews.com/monitors/ I tend to be skeptical of reviews by mags and websites that get paid to advertise brand names they are reviewing. Right now Im still leaning Towards Samsung SyncMaster 245BW 24inch Widescreen LCD Monitor Dynamic 3000:1 Contrast Ratio DVI 1920 x 1200 at $520
  3. Looking for reviews on 22-24 in Wide Monitors I have a Samsung 226BW and when it came out it seemed to have been the big boy on the block for gaming. This is going to be a Christmas gift for the GF's Christmas comp build. We play World of Warcraft mostly and some 1stPer Shooters.
  4. If your looking for cheap an do not care about a warranties, then yeah sounds great. But my self personally, I prefer to buy new. I am a carpenter and believe 100% that when it comes to hardware or tools you get what you pay for. If you buy used you have no recourse if it dies in a week. Here is a a bit of info on monitors. http://forums.anandtech.com/messageview.as...p;enterthread=y I looked for more detailed info within these forums but didnt find any.. I hope its ok to post this link. PS if your gaming you can get a Samsung SyncMaster 226BW for about $50 more - 203.99 here http://www1.pricewatch.com/public/info2.as...mp;aid=34756449 2ms Response rate and not much input lag. bought mine brand new for like $380 about a year ago Hope this helps Tomcat!
  5. Thanks mang Im eyeballing it now. Im sure I will have more questions
  6. Could someone point a Nub to some info on Burn-in testing for newly built systems? A friend of mine just had a comp built for him and he said that it was done being built, but it was going to be a few days before he got it because they were preforming "Burn in tests" to make sure it would be stable? How important is this? I just rebuilt my comp a few weeks ago and my girlfriends comp parts are on their way now. Kind of a Christmas rebuild for her MA790GP-DS4H, 4gb G.skill DDR2 1066 PC8500, Phenom 9950X4 BlkEd, and a 8600GTS, and Corsair HX620 PwrSup. Nice little chunk of change. Just thought it would make sense to look into this. seeing as I still don't have to much Junk installed on mine yet and hers will be a fresh install with an upgrade from XP home to XP x64. thanks in advance.
  7. Yeah but you can get a Disk for free. even beter !
  8. I am a first time XP Pro x64 user. upon installing the OS and updating drivers i ran into a small snag. Problem: I found that my Windows XP x64 Pro said hell No to installing Adobe Flash Player. I guess that Adobe Flash Player requires a 32 bit browser. Solution: I installed firefox and had no further problems Adobe Flash Player Installed and works fine on Firefox Question: For people who wish to use Internet Explorer that comes with a x64 OS is there a way to get Flash to work with it?
  9. I have had consistent problems with my Vonage router dropping my internet connection my first one was a Linksys I complained and they sent me a motorola. I used to go from modem to Vonage router then to the Gaming comp router but we kept loosing internet connection even after switching routers so i changed to the setup below This stopped the connection problems but not the Voice quality in our phone lines. the Phones get bad static people cant hear us or we can barely hear them and when we reset the routers and modem this works sometimes but is always a temporary fix, (band-aid on a gunshot wound) Cable Modem linksys 4port BEFSR41 ---port1--- Game Comp 1 ---port2--- Game Comp 2 ---port3--- 1TB NAS Box ---port4-----------> to Vonage VT2542-VD Wireless Router ---port1--- GF business comp 1 ---port2--- MY business comp 2 wired/wireless laptop ---port3--- network printer ---port4--- ---Tel line1--- Girlfriends business line Moorestown New Jersey # ---Tel line2--- My business line central Florida #(where we live) Is there a better cable modem then a stock COMCAST and or stock Vonage VOIP routers that I can get? Has anyone else had these problems with Vonage? I run a service business from home and my GF does software support for a payroll company from home.
  10. Sorry for the double post:( I need my subscription info reset please so i can use pay-pal to pay for my occ subscription instead of mailing a check.. KK thankyou in advance

  12. What is the best AM2 Motherboard and Chipset right now .
  13. Ok I have a Gigabyte GA-MA790X-DS4 motherboard and right now I have 2 Kingston DDR2 800 PC2 6400 2 Gig sticks I want to get ddr2-1066 pc2 8500. lThe supported brands are King Max Apacer Aeneon Kingston Micron OCZ Apogee A-data Winchip Geil I was woundering what would be the best brand, what size sticks and in what configuration? My board will support up to 16 GB (I'm running x64 OS) and whats the difference between EPP DIMM and a JDEC DIMM? Thank you in advance
  14. OK 2 questions #1) In the Advanced Bios features page under "Init display first" i have PCI chosen, there is also PEG and PEG1? should i have PEG because i am using a PCI-e card? #2) the Motherboard has ATX 12v 2x4 ATX my power supply has the plugs for both but i didnt use it because 1 side was caped off. is this feature used when you are using more then 1 Vid card ?
  15. ok here are my settings. is there anything i can do to increase proformance with out OCing? i want to learn about my settings before i start to even think about Over Clocking.
  16. Having never done this I am assuming that the first place to start would be the Bios settings. I have taken pics of my settings figuring that would be the easiest way to show my current defult settings on my MBoard. Can i post the pics here or do i need to post them somewhere else with just links in this forum? Basicly I want to start by maximising what I have now before OCing and getting to know my systems hardware limitations first.
