  1. No I haven't but still, they seem to be ok since they only don't work on dual-channel.
  2. I got this problem several months ago and since I couldn't fix it I let it pass but now I would really like to know what the hell is causing it. So here is the deal, I went to a friends house (like I did several times before) and brought the computer with me for some LAN fun. A couple of hours of gaming and no problems whatsoever. Everything fine till now, however, when I took the computer and brought it back home guess what? It didn't post! Everything turned on including fans at full speed but nothing more. No beeps, no anything. Tested unplugging and plugging everything again but the problem remained. Time to check the hardware. I simply unplugged one of the memory sticks (I have 2x1gb) and everything worked. Maybe this one is faulty I taught so I swapped them but it booted again, however when I tried both dual channel configurations (1-3 and 2-4) it didn't post! Finally I tried the single-channel configurations (1-2 and 3-4) and the computer ran without any problems. I've been using single-channel for a few months now w/o problems but even if I now try dual-channel it won't post. This is incredibly weird since all the slots and memory sticks seem to work. Any type of help would be appreciated. You can see my system specs on the signature.

    Just take your time Dave
  5. At those resolutions I don't really think so. He may not be able to max everything out but even at high settings the GTS250 can handle itself. The problems he is experiencing in my opinion come from the CPU, especially on Bad Company 2 and Metro 2033 which bot rely a lot on the CPU.

    HD4890 or HD5770

    4890 -> Raw performance 5770-> Features, temps and power consumption. At that resolution the 5770 may not provide smooth play at some games in the highest settings but personally I would choose it instead of the 4890. Your call.
  7. Your graphics card is able to handle those games at that resolution even at high settings but like I said before your CPU isn't very good for gaming specially at those clocks. BTW, what's your PSU brand?

    Probably a promo for the next Transformers film.
  9. I don't think there isn't really anything wrong with your system and it has nothing to do with the Nvidia GPU on an AMD chipset. The games you mentioned demand a lot and I think the frame rates are normal for your system. My opinion? The CPU. All the games you mentioned rely heavily on the CPU and yours isn't really that good. Overclock it and you shall see a noticeable improvement but don't expect miracles.
  10. Same! Lots of brilliant people in one place!

    Collateral damage video leaked in Iraqi

    I really like how people that don't know anything about war go sit on their comfortable chairs in front of their computers calling those Apache crew members murders and psychos... First of all even if there wasn't any weapons, which is not true, the gunners reacted like there were guns present and that's what matters to me. They did the right thing! Maybe they did mistaken some cameras for guns but hey, they were on an Apache on Iraq in 2007, not watching a youtube video rewinding and checking if it was really guns or cameras. Secondly they didn't starting shooting randomly shouting "get some!", they reported what they were seeing and asked permission to fire which was conceded. Yes, they were pumped but to kill the enemies of your country (America) and that's why you sent them there in the first place! Just to end my post I would just like to add: Were the Americans on the WTC mistaken by soldiers on a military watch tower in the middle of New York? I don't think so...

    Military like radio voice chat software

    Thanks a lot guys! Will give it a try!
  13. I would like to know if there is a voice chat software (like teamspeak) that gives the similar rough sound to a military radio. Here you have an example of the sound I'm looking for. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gWU7VN2bPlY Would be greatly appreciated with any help you can give!

    I would like to ask, what's the difference between the Ultra SLI and the SLI FTW? And which is better?
