    I've had horrible luck with my EVGA board/video card :(

    My brother, when ordering his parts, thought brand names of video card and motherboard had to match, and that only Nvidia cards worked with Nvidia chipsets.

    Common misconception.
    I've ran into 2 evga cards in my past, one of which I am using now, I like them both.

    Shadowfold: 7/10, you need to up the clock on the cpu, your bottlenecking your card.

    u2konline: 8/10 energy efficiency.

    What do you guys think on my rig. i might up it to 3.4GHz if i feel like it.

    ?/10. Nothin to rate. But, I will rate you on mainstream gaming, modern dual 2.6Ghz+/PC6400 DDR2/HD3850 and above/Midgrade 500W PSU, 7.5/10.

    Pepsi: 8.5/10, nice OC on the Xeon, and only 2 GB of RAM?

    u2konline: 1/10 for performance, 9/10 for GreenPC (90 watt PSU!), and 10/10 for keeping a PIII rig alive.
    Slap in an AGP 3650 HD, a 1 GHz PIII, a modernish 80+ PSU and 1 GB of RAM (2x 512 MHz), and you'd get 3.5/10 from me and 10/10 for power efficiancy.

    Heya Urb!

    9/10 from me, one thing, are those 24/7 clocks on ram and cpu? Cause they are very good. I see that e6550 been treating you very well.

    Not yet, dialing it in now as I just added 2GB if XMS2 I had. I am at 3GHz now on stock volts and 850MHz on the RAM at 4-4-4-12 2.1v. I'm trying to get the Corsair kit to reach higher clocks but it has troubles going above 900MHz. Yea, the E6550 has been greeeaaattt, it is 1 year and a month old now and is working as good as the first day I got it.(Same with the Ballistx). The time is coming now where I need a CPU upgrade. Start to get into music production and with games supporting Quads, I think that may be my next move. Gotta love AMD's PII for dropping C2Q's price:D

    To above poster, 8.5/10 for now. 9.5 when you get your PII:)

    Someone gave my computer/gaming performance a 1/10 LMFAO. I get 10-25fps in Crysis warhead at 1280x1024 low to mainstream, on a Pentium III, but i get a 1/10 performance lol.

    Anyways, Urbklr, 9/10. Windows 7 blah, Vista Meh, thats why you didn't get a 10. Also, thanks for supporting Visiontek. You know they release a new driver right, the 8.11 i believe.

    Crysis isn't the only game out there. It is the hardest on computers, but its low quality isn't that demanding. I would give you a 2/10.

    BTW, I love Vista/7...they are great:)

    you do understand that i ran crysis when it first came out on a S754 and 7800GS. not to mention even an ATOM can run crysis with that VGA card.


    you do get a 1/10 on performance its a 6-7yrs old pc?! not to mention its not even home built its a bloody gateway. get a new PC if you saved the money from the last 3 VGA cards you have purchased you could have a computer thats not comparable to a commodore 64

    Cdawall, your Green Box gets 10/10 for power savings if that PSU is 80+ certified. ;)

    u2konline, overclock your computer! I dare ya! :D
