  1. Definitely a good point, lol I went ahead and updated the audio drivers (even though the ones I had were "up to date" according to ASUS Drivers). I got the updated ones from Realtek's site. So far it seems to be working, but I haven't really done any "stress testing" as of yet. I will give it a day or two and see what happens and give you guys the update.
  2. Are you talking about Stress tests? or just simply seeing if it still does the lock ups?
  3. Should have clarified, 1) I am running 2x Sapphire 5870's in crossfire (2x SAPPHIRE 100281-3SR Radeon HD 5870 (Cypress XT) 1GB to be exact) 2) P/S is a Coarsair TX850 watt which is a little less than a year old. 3) ATM, I am using onboard audio (Realtek ALC1200)
  4. So, here is the situation...... While I'm doing something (usually in a game, or something graphical related [even a crappy youtube, non HD, video]) my computer will randomly crash/lock-up. Typically its while I'm in a game, for example..... I was playing some MW2 last night with some friends and while running around the map, the game screen froze but the audio played fine for about another 10sec. or so. After which the audio just became a constant screeching sound. This time the game screen didn't change, but many time the screen will go either completely Gray or Black or Gray w/ lines going vertically. But the horrible part is that its not just in-game. Right after this happened, I rebooted and while downloading the new updated drivers for the 5870 from AMD, I was on Facebook and the system did the same thing...... Screen froze, audio played for ~10sec. then went to constant screeching sound. ANY ideas why this might be happening? (Specs are in my sig)
  5. Updated OP with current availability

  7. So, I want to run about 8 xbox's and monitors off of one power cable. I have the power to handle it, but I'm a little unsure of what gauge of extension cord I should use. Any ideas?

  13. Simple Question....... Looking to purchase a Killer NIC 2100 to help with latency and connections. Is it a good purchase or a waste of time? BTW, I might be getting it for about $60 if that makes a difference
  14. With the 5870's being normally about $300 and this one is basically $80 off, I got two to be safe in terms of price. Even with the new cards coming out, I would be shocked if they will be $220. Worst case, I can sell one of the cards or both to a buddy of mine.
  15. Thank you to everyone for all of your help. I really appreciate all the help and advice. I think Im gunna go ahead with the 5870's Crossfire setup. I didn't realize my motherboard allowed for both cards to run at 16x while in crossfire.
  16. Yup, worst case, Im just gunna do one to my name and one to my buddies name.
  17. With that in mind....... Crossfire the 5870's or just get one? or get the 6870?
  18. Unfortunately, he says in the description that he is the original owner, except he got it as a replacement for 3 dead cards, so the warranty can not be transferred.
  19. I was thinkin 5870's crossfired.
  20. My Buddy just bought me the Corsair 850w (it was a steal, $89.99 at Best Buy)
  21. That is an awesome deal for a 5970 2GB, but I don't feel comfortable purchasing from another forum I don't belong to, haven't been to, don't know the seller, and the warranty on it is basically though him (cant be transferred, so I would have to get a hold of him for any issues......) Thank you VERY much for the advice though. I really apprecaite it. Knowing that IVY, would you still go with the 5870's?
  22. About $400ish and I really dont wana go much higher (ie: 2 of the 5870's are $440 and I can do that)
