    Crossfire question

    If you have a spare PCi-e port than you can use a nVidia 8xxx series card or higher for physics. But the extra card has to be a nVidia card since ATI does not have PhysX support. Personally i just went out and bought a old used BFG PhysX PCI card for 15.00 on ebay, and it works perfect with my...

    Torn between 3 powersupplys.

    Oh wow sweet. So now it's up between the OCZ and one of Mikes crosair 750's... Cheaper is better since i have a tuition payment coming up soon and I really don't need to spend 130+ on a powersupply. Loudness is not much of a issue since my whole set-up is aircooled and i have a 1st gen 4850...

    Torn between 3 powersupplys.

    Okies. I was looking at those but i think i would go with the crossfire over it for the fact of free shipping. Although i have always liked the PC P&C ones That's very very true, What do you think of the OCZ ModXStream Pro series newegg is having a sale on them right now. I was thinking of...

    AMD Releases ATI Catalyst 9.7 Driver Suite

    Hehe, yea once UPS decides that it wants to bring me my new power supply then i can really see some increases. I'm mainly just hoping to get some OpenGL performance increase in SecondLife.

    4Pin CPU plug causing powersupply to shut off.

    Thanks for your help. I guess i will attempt to deal with ECS's horrible support and get a RMA on it since it apprently had a "36 Month Warrany" on parts XD

    4Pin CPU plug causing powersupply to shut off.

    Well no at 2.56 i had the voltage at 1.2 instead of the stock 1.3. I have overvolted but that was over a year ago when i first got the board and tired to get some nice numbers out of it. When i first got the board it would not support my phenom it would just shutoff on boot. I updated the BIOS...

    4Pin CPU plug causing powersupply to shut off.

    I tried my older Athlon X2 3800+ and it dose the same thing, I also tried my Phenom X4 9850 which is what i have had in the board for over a year with 0 issues since the board supports up to 140w CPU's. The oddest thing is that it dose it no matter whether or not there is a CPU in the board. The...

    4Pin CPU plug causing powersupply to shut off.

    I recently replaced my ECS 780G motherboard with a nice new gigabyte one and decided to order some parts and build the old ECS one for my father. The board was working fine when i pulled it out of my rig and put it in a electrostatic bag and put it back in it's box. I pulled it out today and...

    PC shutoff now storage is gone ?

    Well now my problem has evolved. I rebooted once more and now the partitions are gone and the drive is showing up as "Unreadable" So the drive is just bad. Also when ever i try to run HDD Regenerator I always get the error of "Drive MBR is bad please reboot". Time to file a RMA.

    PC shutoff now storage is gone ?

    Well i just rebooted and it worked oddly X.x. I got most of my documents that i needed to save off of it and then in the middle of the transfer the pc BSODed and when i rebooted the drive quit working. Since i got about 90% of what i wanted from it i decided to just cut my losses. I...

    PC shutoff now storage is gone ?

    I've tried a lot of ways that i have found none seem to find anything or fix anything. I also tried a live boot of ubuntu and that gave me the same error that windows is. I also let Active Partition Recovery and getbackdata run and neither came back with anything other than errors. I'm starting...

    PC shutoff now storage is gone ?

    Also something else that i have come across is that is if I go into the disk management for windows it sees the drive to have one Primary RAW partition when it should be NTFS. Then in PTDD the drive shows up as a NTFS drive. So apparently windows turned the NTFS partition into a RAW partition...

    PC shutoff now storage is gone ?

    Yes i have installed all drivers for the motherboard, and no this is the only PC that i have up and running that supports SATA at the moment. Well i ran the automatic cycle and it apprently did something but it did not help. It's searching for partitions so that i can do the manual version...

I also have a 750gig Sata Seagate which my MBR and all my storage is saved. Well my computer shutoff instantly and when i booted windows wanted to do a disk check...

    Upgraded Motherboard and added Crossfire now there are issues.

    Thanks for the welcome. It seams to be stable I'm not planing on running anything stressing other than some movies until i get a new power supply. I'm glad the hd3300 can handle both of my monitors with out lagging.
