    Mind you, I know nothing about the board you have these sticks in, but are they in the right channels? Most boards I've seen are A-B-A-B, while yours looks like A-A-B-B.

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    I know my Am2+ and Am3 boards loads them up like that. It is weird but thats how it wants them for dual channel, side by side.


    xBruce88x, your system may like some faster mem at some point. I have my Am2+ running 800/6400 ddr2 and it just loves it.

    yea, mine is AABB, though the manual tells me to load up slots 3 and 4 first for some reason. I plan to get another set of 800mhz DDR2 2x2GB (or 4x4gb?) along with a Phenom II x6 at a later time. I thought about overclocking the G.Skill and running all 4 modules at 333 (667mhz) but they're only loaners from a friend of mine lol.

    DDR2-1066 here on AM2+ with northbridge at 2400MHz screams along nicely

    Just moved house this weekend and of course, I have my priorities straight. First thing I did was provide a temporary home for my rig :) (Need to buy a nice big new desk)

    Input devices are to a nerd what tools are to a tradesman, it makes a world of difference if you got the good stuff.

    edit: i actually just tried it with my g700 and its not bad. it seems the vespula just really really hates the aftermarket mouse skates/feet on my G500

    Why out of Curiosity??? I have owned two of each now and all in all there is very little difference in performance and everything else. Don't get me wrong there are some thing I like about the GTX 680 better and there are some things I like about the HD7970 better... but they are both very very good cards.

    Did you have a 680? what happened to it?

    What did you do to your 7970s, did you sell them? as you said both cards are awesome, and trade punches at high resolutions; Just curious, how do the 680s compare to your previous setup?

    It's silent with the teflon-y feet of my G700, plus I always have the sensitivity really high so I don't move the mouse a whole lot either. To move my mouse from one corner of the screen to the opposite corner slowy takes about 3/8 of an inch.

    Gaming lair

    I received my 2nd Agility 3 120GBs SSD yesterday, got it on sale for $99 after MIR at Newegg, finally the prices of SSDs are hitting bellow $1 per GB; mounted it today in my Bedroom/LAN box rig:

    [​IMG]

    Got the two drives working in RAID 0, Win 7 boots in seconds, and the system is very responsive, maybe not as fast as the Vertex 3s in my main rig, but no bad at all for this little mATX project:

    [​IMG]

    Here's everything plugged in and ready to rock:rockout:

    [​IMG]

    Here's my pride and joy :p my gaming chair! lately I've been spending more time gaming in this room than in my main rig, it's so comfortable! :D

    I hope you guys liked it! :toast:
