  1. I'm looking for a good gaming headset that have good directional sound. Good sound quality would be nice, but i already have a good pair of headphones for music. 200AU budget. At the moment i'm considering getting either plantronics gamecom 777 or Razer Megadolon's. I'm located in Brisbane Australia, so if the headphones can be sourced from Umart that would be perfect, otherwise any good store or online shop will be fine too. Opinions?

  3. built by hand, with a i5 760 cpu and a Evga p55 FTW mobo. attempting to change the frequency by modifying the "cpu frequency setting" in the bios.
  4. Cant change the frequency of my cpu for some reason, it's stuck in "auto". help?
  5. hmmm, guess you could place the ESD protection bag underneath it. was just thinking that might be a risk if your putting in your ram on the mobo's cardboard box.
  6. just bought the parts. due to the AUD reaching parity with USD, everything became so much cheaper, i have an extra $250 to play with. what'd be a better upgrade path? a 60GB SSD? or another gtx 460 for SLI?
  7. Is there any risk of ESD if I put a mobo on a varnished wooden desk? just thinking it'd reduce the risk of snapping the mobo when inserting the RAM.
  8. due to financial stress, pushing this back till next wednesday. i'm definately going to get a sli 460 setup in the future, with a possible i7, frio and whatnot i've changed the video card to a Gigabyte GF GTX460 1G, anyone know how long the warranty is on these things?
  9. what would be a good compound to get then?
  10. i've heard some complaints about bleeding on benQ monitors so just gunna avoid em. might change the videocard to another brand, warrenty and whatnot. the frio is over 1kg in weight and both the frio and the dark knight are huge. sounds noobish but isn't there a weight limit to these coolers before the motherboard snaps? i'd like the psu to have some sort of modular design, for both airflow and my sanity. might get a Corsair HX-750 though at that price is antec really bad enough to justify it? all of this will blow my budget by a cool $100.
  11. for a case, I'd recommend the antec nine hundred two as a cheaper alternative. It's a bit smaller than the twelve hundred but still holds an ATX mobo and a giant videocard. http://www.pixmania.ie/ie/uk/2631001/art/antec/nine-hundred-two-pc-tower.html
  12. going to buy this sometime this week. Antec nine hundred two case Antec ATX TruePower 750W Intel Core i5 760 Processor LGA1156 2.80GHz 8MB Cache CPU free Intel T-Shirt Western Digital 1TB SATA3 64M(WD1002FAEX) Razer Arctosa Gaming Keyboard Silver Edition Razer Abyssus High Precision Optical Gaming Mouse Sony AD7240SGB 22X SATA OEM DVD RW Black Acer G245HBMID 24inch Wide Black 5ms VGA DVI HDMI Spker Gigabyte GA-P55-UD5 LGA1156 Dual Lan Clound OC DDR3 2600+ eSata/USB G Skill 4G(2x2G) DDR3 1600Mhz PC12800 CL8(CL8D-4GBTD) Cooler Master Hyper TX3 POV GTX 460 1G D5 2DVI/HDMI Artic Silver 5 Thermal Grease Razer Goliathus Alpha Mousemat Control Version if there's anything else in there that you wouldn't recommend, let me know all of this is being bought off Umart
  13. for Australia, Umart. http://www.umart.com.au/.
  14. apparantly all P55 chipsets can handle SLI but nvida is picky about the SLI stamp. a recent revelation for me which has been driving me up the wall for the last 4 hours as there are so few SLI certified mobo's, with this opening up a world of freedom. anyone know if you can SLI the Asus P7P55D-E? thanks in advance.
  15. just the two and everything else is sorted. enjoy!
  16. you might want to add that it takes quite a lot of pressure to insert DIMM, it worried me on my first build.
  17. decided to try and learn a programming language, but just don't know wich one to choose. atm i'm concidering learning ruby. any suggestions?
  18. if it's katamari darmacy, it's not too colourfull.
  19. are thermaltake litepower PSU's at any disadvantage to, say, the thermaltake toughpower range?
  20. considering that i will eventually get a dual 5770 setup, and that i'll be overclocking anything with a clock in that rig, how high a watt rating PSU should i get?
  21. from personal experience, stay the hell away from ASUS. i used to go to a school where every student had an asus laptop, they put a piece of paper with the words "ASUS REPAIR KIT" over the fire extinguisher in the IT room... for the case, consider an antec nine hundred two if it's not too pricy, i'm fairly sure it has filters on all intakes.
  22. only problem is that the 5870 is $500, more than double the price of a 5770 would a crossfire dual 5770's beat a single 5870?
  23. all prices are in AUD. Been planning this rig for ages and carefully researching each part...

  24. on a new system, tossing up choice between a XFX ATI HD5770 1st and 4th revision... is there any advantage in getting the 4th revision with a $23 price difference?
