  1. It does kinda look like a CRT but WarDozer is right it is an old Dell LCD. I picked it up off craigslist for $10 and it there to make the wife understand the importance of having 3 monitors so when I buy 2 more Dell U2312HMs she will bitch less.
  2. Just recived my new headphones this morning. A great addition to my system, now I can talk to people on TS instead of just listening! Thanks Bosco, OCC, and Azio!
  3. Gratz to all that won. Thanks Bosco for taking the time to do such an awesome thing at such a busy time of the year.

  5. I generally use the wasd configuration but I also use a 5 button mouse and program one of the thumb button to w so I can also use the mouse for mouse movements.
  6. I just added my application to the guild.
  7. I have what I am pretty sure are dumb questions about motherboards and videa cards. I have purchased a GIGABYTE GA-880GA-UD3H AM3 AMD 880G HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard. This has an onboard ATI chipset. Does this limit me to using ATI video cards with this motherboard? Also it has 1 PCIEx16 and 1 PCIEx4 how would that limit me for runing crossfire or SLI? If i run either a Crossfire or SLI setup what would be the best way for me determine the amount of power needed for dual cards?
  8. Just ordered the following parts for my first build. Hopefully all goes well but should I encounter problems I will be back for more excellent advice.

  9. Thank you for all your help. I think I am ready to order my parts Thursday when I get paid and then start my first build.
  10. I will be adding a video card in the future. To be honest I have not even started looking at video cards to know what I would like to do. Right now I need a functioning system for basic use but one with the ability to have components added to as money come availible to upgrade. I was able to find CORSAIR Professional Series HX650 (CMPSU-650HX) 650W ATX12V v2.2 / EPS12V 2.91 bundled with the CPU I want for an $18 discount. This should leave me open for alot of options when it comes time to add a video card at a later date right?
  11. Do you think a CORSAIR Gaming Series GS700 700W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC High Performance Power Supply would be a good choice?
  12. Yea to be honest I think I really need to do some more reading on powersupplies. That whole topic have me quite confused right now. I want to be able to upgrade this system into the future but dont have alot of extra funds to drop on a powersupply that is more than I will ever use. I do understand that this is not a place to skimp but I also want to get the best bang for my buck.
  13. I have been reading about building my own computer for a while this site being a great source of information. The other night when my wife broke both of the USB connectors on the laptop (it being our only computer) I saw an opportunity to convince her that I should build my own now. I have been doing some reading today and would like to build a computer for around $500 that has the potential to be upgraded to something better in the future. For now I am forgoing the video and sound card for now but plan to add them both at a future date. I plan to run Windows 7 and add a nice LCD monitor. After adding a video card, sound card and possibly upgrading the memory I hope to be able to do some gaming. Nothing hardcore but would like to be able to at least run most games at a decent frame rate.This is my first component list. I'm not set on anything other than the $500 ballpark budget atm so please feel free to point out where I could do better. Links are all to Newegg but once I settle on parts will probably shop around for best prices.
