    HTPC x1900 AIW build questions...

    I recently aquired a couple of all in wonder cards (9700 pro agp/X1900 pcie). I am mainly concerned about the X1900 AIW. Does anyone here have any experience installing them in a small formfactor case like a shuttle box or a tt Lan Box? I am not so much worried about asthetics and look but being...

    [WTB][US] [CDN]P35/X38/X48 Motherboard

    Wasn't trying to quash your sale just giving options. Sorry. Plus yours is guaranteed all accessories and updated bios. You can't get that with open box. Not sure about warranty transfer but I am pretty sure Asus goes by registration date not who owns it. If you never registered it he in theory...

    [WTB][US] [CDN]P35/X38/X48 Motherboard

    Its an option but you can buy "open box" at newegg http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131218R . It has the full 3 year warranty at the manufacturer as retail, and there is a chance you can get a full retail box as many have. If missing accessories I have found all needed...

    What CPU do you have? Vote!

    I have added to the family. My first Intel since my old PIII. Q6600 GO. My wife and kids still run all my 939 rigs. 2x170's, a 165, and my old 3700 Sandy.

    Memory standard: Can I go below it?

    I also have the X38 Deluxe. I am using 2x1gb Gskill 1333/10600. I am running FSB@333. It ran at 420 with no issues but I feel more comfortable not pushing my $300 board to much right now as it took awhile for me to complete this build. It was worth the wait; its rock stable and really is more...

    help me decide which board

    I faced the same choice and went with the Deluxe, although some people who have gotten the open box with all accessories. If the board is borked it still has the same 3 year warranty as the retail, verified here...

    2 3870's in Xfire or X2?

    http://www.newegg.com/product/product.aspx?item=N82E16814102719 This is a good deal IMO simply for the reason that the coolers are single slot so you don't lose any expansion slots, and if your case has good air flow you should be good to go. The HIS are good too especially at that price. I...

    Bad Bios flash

    I had this happen to me but my board had a removable bios chip. If your board does you can find someone online to flash it (I paid 15$ bucks shipped for a new chip), but I can't find the guy who did it for me anymore. That is your best bet, just look online I am sure you can find some etailer...

    I love Newegg except you lucky bastards who don't live in California and don't have to pay sales tax. Amazon sometimes carries these boards and free shipping and no tax is ideal for me.

    Yeah about 3 weeks ago. The sale was in store only. It was extended and is still going. Limit one per household, and you can make sure you get a GO, I did. I don't think they have any B3s as they said they can't keep em in stock. They might make you try and buy other stuff (up sale) but you are...

    X48 boards availability?

    I know but I am going with a DDR3 board if I can afford it. While DDR3 is pricey now it will eventually come down in price and to me I want to extend the life of my system as much as possible. I am going to pair it with the cheapest 2x1gb DDR3 kit I can get. I already have a Q6600 GO I picked up...
