    Do you use a sound card?

    I'm really curious as to how you got this,could you link me to it? I also wonder if this can control a discrete Asus Xonar card?

    Help me choose a soundcard please

    I do play games,though ones that don't use EAX. I'm not sure about ones such as BF3. I'd like to have a well rounded card,the headphone amp sounds nice,although probably not needed for a set of 38ohm cans. I am picky about hardware,and concerned about jumping on a $120 soundcard that without...

    Help me choose a soundcard please

    I'm thinking of getting the Xonar DX,would it be enough to power ATH-M50's? Or should I spend more and get the Soundblaster Z? Does the Z sound clearer,warmer, or bassier than a Xonar? Is the EQ any better than the Xonar cards?

    Looking for good sub $100 in ear headphones?

    I decided to grab the S4's,they are the best in ear headphones I've ever listened to,but the downside is the small double flange or the medium ear silicone tips don't fit my ears,and the large size doesn't seem to fit quite right either.

    Looking for good sub $100 in ear headphones?

    All I have ever bought were cheap $20-30 headphones,I finally want a decent pair. I don't know much about in ear/earbuds but have heard a lot of good things about the Klipsch S4,but also recently seen the new Sony XBA1's. Which of the two would be better? If you can't recommend either please...

    Advice on new gaming mouse?

    Two recommendations for a Razer and two for a Gigabyte M8000X? The M8000X looks large,my Sidewinder is a large mouse,but it isn't ergonomic enough with the way I hold a mouse (some weird in between a palm and claw grip.) Have you ever had a problem with your Deathadder? While reading reviews...

    Advice on new gaming mouse?

    I currently have a MS Sidewinder X8,which has always been uncomfortable for me to hold,sometimes the left click doesn't register, the charger built into the wireless thing quit working,and the scroll wheel when from normal to no "click" when scrolling (can get annoying in FPS games). I looked at...

    Intel offering downloadable hardware upgrades for low end chips.

    Yeah,because Intel working under the table with OEM's & forcing competition of of the market is just fine. :rolleyes:

    FX-Series Processors Clock Speeds 'Revealed'

    A source is saying BD is going to be out in August. http://www.theregister.co.uk/2011/07/22/amd_q2_2011_numbers/

    FX-Series Processors Clock Speeds 'Revealed'

    You do have a point there,even if BD kicks SB ass,Intel will still outsell them because they have their ways of squeezing AMD out of the market. However i've been told if AMD ever went under,there would be several lawsuits(though I think Intel would just pay them off) and the FTC splitting up...

    Llano officially for sale on tigerdirect

    However Newegg doesn't have any Llano laptops worth buying right now IMO. Bestbuy (yeah I know bestbuy otherwise sucks) has a HP DV6 A8 quad core Llano laptop with dual graphics and a bluray drive.

    AMD Bulldozer Eng. Sample leaked, benched

    Since the Northbridge is the CPU,there isn't alot to be changed. But I'm sure there are optimizations for BD in the 990FX chipset,990FX also has SLI support.

    AMD Bulldozer Eng. Sample leaked, benched

    The 990FX is the new chipset made to work with BD,older 8xx series require a BIOS update.

    AMD Bulldozer Eng. Sample leaked, benched

    I just checked the Gigabyte site,they now have a beta version of a AM3+ support BIOS for my board (890GX),but that doesn't mean the BIOS is stable or even works with a final release Bulldozer CPU. I'm surprised,no BIOS update for their 890FX series?

    AMD Bulldozer Eng. Sample leaked, benched

    I agree,while BD might not blow SB away,it will be a lot faster than anything AMD has out today. AMD's goal isn't to be the best,but to provide a competitive product that will satisfy most users needs. However,for $300 it should at least be on par with a 2500K,if not,users will still buy from Intel.

    AMD Bulldozer Eng. Sample leaked, benched

    The tested chip is a ES. An ES chip will use higher voltage,is buggy thus doesn't run as well as it should, and have a higher TDP than the final product released to the consumer.

    Llano desktop preview

    The Llano has Phenom II cores,however it has no L3 cache,instead each core has 1MB of L2 cache,so it's more like a Athlon II. Too bad AMD couldn't fit L3 cache in,but I don't think it would really matter.

    AMD Bulldozer Eng. Sample leaked, benched

    I should be asking you that question. Everyone else ignored the fact,I pointed it out. And you just leave an immature comment.

    AMD Bulldozer Eng. Sample leaked, benched

    Facepalm.JPG You'll find anything to prove your point won't you? That is on dry ice,with the chip clocked at what? 5Ghz? 6Ghz? Any normal OC on air will NOT consume 300W.

    Testing how much power it takes from the wall with a kill-a-watt meter is a better measure.
