Depends on the resolutions you want to be running at. I usually run at 1600x1200 or over so I'd get the 4850. Also you could put the money somewhere...
Perfect card for high-res monitors.
Looks like I finally have a reason to throw out my CRT monitor.
I like it, sleek but not over the top like some of their products. Thermaltake often had excessively riced designs.
I'd go with the 750W Corsair also.
A black version of the "royale" theme.
Socket F or AM2?
Yes if the 320s have the larger single platter, not all do. Some 1TB drives (Samsung F1 1TB and soon the WD 1TB drives will also). All 640s use the...
Agreed, moving full size towers is a pain. I'd get a laptop or at least a matx case.
All 750GB drives are slower than 640GB drives because the 640s have larger platter density (~320GB per disk versus 250GB per disk). The extra 16MB of...
You might get $100 give or take on ebay. It's matched well with your system... I don't see a point in upgrading it unless you upgrade the entire...
I've never had any problems with Seasonic, Silverstone, or Corsair power supplies.
Another vote for 8800GT/8800GTS G92.
I'm guessing SSD drives will prevent that from happening.
The extra 16MB of cache has extremely minimal effect on performance. Platter density and RPM are far more important.
I'd also go for the Xigmatek. Be sure to measure your case, it is a fairly tall cooler.
My mistake. Got it mixed with up the 9800GX2. So in that case I reverse my origional conclusion and would go for the GTX.
Yes this is a 3850 not 3870. Basically the only difference is lower clocks, but it is still a very fast card. Their performance is nearly the same....
I'd get the blood iron.
Not enough bandwith to communicate with the extra ram. Only works if the memory bus is upgraded along with the ram itself.
With standard air/water cooling you can only get as low as room temperature, usually between 20 and 25c (68 and 77F). If you get readings below that...
My planned budget was up to $90 but I'm willing to go higher if needed. It will be used in a htpc case with no room for full size expansion cards so...
I need some recommendations on a lga775 board with these qualities; in order of importance:
1. Good on-board graphics.
2. Good overclocking.
Same here. Never saw it coming but it makes sense, it will let Nvida diversify like ATI without being taken over. Hopefully this will result in more...
