    Next generation cards

    At 1600p? I should make myself clearer, by 'handling' I meant play at 60fps. No need to get abusive, this is just my opinion guys. By the way, on max settings, my dual 6950s get 50fps in broderlands 2... I wouldn't call that ideal. Maybe my expectations are higher than others. :confused:

    Next generation cards

    Guild wars 2, Borderlands 2, and upcoming game Planetside 2. GTX 680 cant handle them. We need better vid cards.

    Build me a gaming PC for under $650!

    Nope, nope, nope, nope. I assumed that that was implied, given the build I posted.

    Build me a gaming PC for under $650!

    Here's what I got: What could be better? And here's the site I'm working with: http://www.umart.com.au/newindex2.phtml?bid=5 The build is for a teenager, so bigger specs = better. And of course he wants a shiny/cool looking case. Go! Go! Go! Go! :toast:

    DAW Pc

    Depends on how serious you are. DAWs are one of the few applications of computers where a 6-8 core CPU is very much beneficial. I have an i5 2500k (overclocked no less)for my DAW and I am kicking myself for not getting an i7 2600k for the extra threads. If I had my time again I would go for an...

    What would you do with Dell 1000w psu?

    You could power a car amplifier with it, but this would only be practical if you already had an amp lying around also.

    Hd 6950

    The 6950 is a great card, I have two and before I crossfired I had just the one, and it played everything on high settings. Two 6950s is overkill but I just wanted a constant 60fps in BF3 with all settings on max plus maximum AA, because I was dipping into the high 40s on occasion. Everything...

    need suggestions for a new mobo x58

    Yes, I think he knows that, but that does not take a away from the fact that the power draw from those cards would be enormous.

    Learning method

    LOL You ever tried to learn how to play guitar reading a book? I mean like finger positions and movements (not music theory). Trust me, a video is A LOT better than a book in that regard. It all just depends on what it is you are learning, as stated previously.

    How long do you need to run temperature tests?

    +1 You gotta keep in mind that stress tests are artificial. You can stress your cpu for days and have the computer crash 5 minutes into a gaming session. My temps usually get no higher after about an hour of prime 95

    Windows 7 install not recognizing hard drive on brand new rig

    You might have to format the drive, which means plugging it into another computer and going through disk management in windows. It probably won't show up in My Computer if you just plug it in.

    iTunes Question

    Welcome to not living in America. Hahaha, this reminds of a few years ago, where an Australian made car, the Holden Clubsport I believe, was imported to the US by Pontiac, rebadged as the Pontiac G8 (or something), and sold CHEAPER in America than here, when converted to AU $. It was actually...
