    Just wondering if there were ever unlockable extra stuff on these cards that made them more like the ti? like a bios edit or something that unlocked extra shaders or some thing similar. I have it over clocked reasonably well for now and did not need any voltage mods, but i am just wating on a...

    2x 60cfm push pull vs 1x 100 cfm fan push

    what would you think is going to be better one 100 cfm fan or even 120 whatever vs 2x 60 cfm fans. for arguments sake lets say the 100+ cfm fan would have a rpm or 2500 or more and the 60 cfm would have a rpm of 1500. obviously the 2x 60 cfm would be less noisy. but would the 100+ cfm fan alone...

    show me that a q6600 is no good now

    Ok, basically i know that the q6600 is considered ancient in terms of computing power. But i just cant seem to justify an i3 or low cost i5 because i simply dont see how they can actually be that much better. I dont mean the higest value i5's and i7's I mean the run of the mill i dont have much...
