    [FS][US] Brand new Xonar D2X Audio

    Asking $150 (dropped from $160) shipped to the continental US (others will require price adjustment). The ONLY reason I'm selling this barely (and I mean barely) used card is due to a sort of conflict with my system. If you would like to view my trader rating at another forum, here

    Trade: TT armor 250mm left side panel for non-fan

    It must be silver. I bought a Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme and this thing is HUGE, so I had to uninstall the fan.....thermaltake doesn't have any replacements in stock. Go figure. Anyhow, I'd like to trade, or I'll but it if it's in good condition.

    Q6600 G0 2 cores disabled

    I haven't been able to figure this out for the life of me. I was only seeing 2 cores in the BIOS under system info, but I flashed the latest 0601 BIOS for my P5K deluxe and now I see 4 in system info. Under task manager I only get 2 graphs. In CPU-Z I only see 2 cores as well. In device...

    How to properly install INF chipset drivers for P35?

    I installed the old drivers from my mobo's CD, and there are much newer ones on the ASUS site. I am getting horrible Crosfire performance and this may be the culprit. How do I install the newer ones?

    Overclocking the RD580 (Xpress 3200)

    I have read that they are stable beyond 1500 MHz (300 HT), so you don't have to worry about changing the multiplier from 5X to 3X. I'm wondering if running mine at 1500 will yield any Crossfire performance. Anyone tested this yet with Crossfire (or single card for that matter) on the RD580 or...

    X1950 Pro users: Your thoughts on the new Catalyst 7.3

    Um my benches were a little lower in 3dmark (same overclock) but they were drastically lower in the ATI Tray Tools bench. I went from the Warcat 7.1 to the standard 7.3. I generally use the Warcats because they look a lot better usually. Your thoughts please!
