  1. Haha thanks for all the replies. I came to the conclusion the HAF932 was way bigger than I actually needed, so I went ahead and bought the HAF922. Gotta say, extremely pleased with it. I took every panel apart and painted them. Just waiting for it to dry before I put it back together. Ill try posting pics later if anyone's interested . Once again, thanks guys for helping me decide
  2. I was messing around with an old computer that I had and i pulled out the front panel USBs from my mobo. I was trying to figure out how to put them back in but it was a bunch of 1-pin connectors, so I ran Belarc and they gave me NF-CK804 as my mobo. I also rebooted to look at the system BIOS and it came up with 10/21/2005-NF-CK804-6A61FB09C-00. Could anyone tell me exactly what mobo I have? I've been trying to look for a while with no luck at all. If you need any more info feel free to ask. Thanks in advance.
  3. So many boards to choose from lol. One last question before I go ahead and make my decision. Is Biostar mobos any good? Mainly I was looking at this one. Has anyone had any positive/negative experience with this particular mobo or even the company?
  4. Is the ASRock board able to Crossfire? I was reading specs and it didn't really say much about it edit: Nevermind, it did state that it was able to Crossfire, just didn't get into detail
  5. Oh wow, I never heard about that company, but that does seem like a viable option. Thanks for the links, I'll definately be considering this
  6. Thanks for the replies, and sorry for getting back so late. Just got home I was leaning towards getting the crossfire seeing as how $50 dollars won't really kill my budget by that much, but the thought of paying $50 for just a red board (since performance wise, I won't be getting much of a boost if any at all) just doesn't seem worth it lol. The crossfire would be more future proof in the long run though, right?
  7. I was wondering what the difference was between the Asus board you linked me and this one. Another one I just found was this mobo. I'm assuming 890FX > 890GX based on chipsets? Also, IF I were willing to shell out an extra $50, would the Crosshair IV formula be worth it in terms of what I get out of it performance wise? This may sound dumb, but I like color coordinating everything, and the blue boards just throws everything off lol.
  8. I would mostly be buying my parts from either microcenter or newegg.
  9. The problem with non reference cards, they're pretty hard to find, at least for me. Also, I don't know which non reference card is good and which is actually worse.
  10. I believe the double lifetime warranty is a lifetime warranty for you, and if you ever decide to sell it, the buyer will also have a lifetime warranty. Double lifetime
  11. I'm currently in the process of building my first rig, and I'm stumped on as to what mobo I should buy. So far what I have in mind as far as other parts go is CPU: Phenom II x4 965BE MEM: G.Skill Ripjaw Video: HD5850 1GB PSU: undecided So there you have it. I'm looking to spend around $100-170 on the mobo. Does anyone have any suggestions or advice for what kind of mobo I should be looking for? Thanks in advance. Edit: I forgot to mention, I would like a mobo that supports CF, because I want to add another 5850 sometime in the future.
  12. The company isn't really an issue, but everyone was telling me to go XFX for the double lifetime warranty. I'm always open to suggestions
  13. Thank you for your reply. Also, what is the difference between the Black Edition and the regular 5850? It's about a $50 dollar difference and I'm wondering if it's worth the difference. Another thing I was concerned with was eventually I was planning on running CF with these cards, but seems that availability will be an issue. edit: Will OC be an issue for either the reference or not reference cards? If so, which would do a better job at OCing?
  14. I'm currently trying to build a new rig, and started doing some research on video cards but I'm a little confused. First of all, I read about these reference and non-reference video cards being made. Would it matter which one I got? Also, how would I know if I'm getting a reference card or not? I looked up a few 5850 models on newegg and this is what I got. HD-585X-ZNFC, XFX HD-585X-ZNFV, XFX HD-585X-ZABC, and the XFX HD-585X-ZAFC. Is there something specific I should be looking for or avoid? Or maybe a card that I missed? Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance
  15. Thanks for your post. I reread my post because I thought I had a typo in there. The CM Storm case I was looking at was the Scout and not the Sniper . I was leaning towards the HAF 932 as well, but I guess I'm really picky and hate the fact that the inside is silver. I've thought about either buying the BE or just painting it myself, but then again, I don't know how hard/easy that would be.
