    Is PC part picker always right with compatibility?

    You can trust them for most things, but as others have stated, it's always worth double checking your final "build". It's also easy enough to inform them if the info given is wrong, I've done that a number of times *evil grin* :p

    Games Under-Performing, Unknown Culprit, Proves to be a Challenge

    Yeah, first try with just one stick, then two, moving the sticks back and forth....Workstations can often be very picky about what ram they accept :( and perversely accept the most generic ram instead...Go figure! :p Basically, what I (and other TPU members) am suggesting is a process of...

    Games Under-Performing, Unknown Culprit, Proves to be a Challenge

    Thought I might add something here, as have owned CAD workstations in the past... Dell Workstations are quirky beasts, especially the lower-end ones like yours. I would suggest installing the drivers from the Dell website (even if windows auto detects and installs own sets), then checking each...

    RAM issue

    If I remember rightly, the issue is over the voltage with this board (used to own one briefly) and the RAM. As @cadaveca has stated previously, the cpu is not "fully" capable of running at 2400MHz ram speeds (check with Intel via the ol' googleness). However Asrock claimed this wasn't an issue...

    Spoiler Alert........this car is fast.

    @qubit I agree, but suspect the magic barrier of 290-300mph exerts serious stability issues on this car :p

    Need to unlock USB key

    Choices: 1) Keep it, after wiping. 2) Hand over to the ol' Bill (Police) 3) Stick it in a safe in case customer asks for it at some future date.... 4) Don't post on a public forum about decrypting the drive :p

    memory and graphics card update for build, circa 2008.

    PC recycling centres are a good way to get hold of old ram... Especially those companies that breakup servers. Last deal I made I got 25 sticks of ECC DDR2 800 ram for (converts in head) $22. :)

    Which GTX is enough?

    I'll just add my little bit (to the already excellent advice given): you should always try for a single GPU solution, especially if you are new to PC gaming, design, etc. Simply put, this means less hassle for you... Also... Some MMO's benefit more from actually being on a SSD, for faster map...

    Favorite Motherboard Brand?

    In 25-30 years of 'messing around'with pc's, I've gone through a lot of motherboards, both personally and when building for clients, I remember some fondly like Chaintech, Foxconn, Abit, SOYO, etc. These days I tend to go for MSi for gaming, Gigabyte for stability, and occasionally ASRock when...

    Advise for/against engineering sample cpu

    Basically Intel doesn't like knowing these samples are 'floating' around outside of their control. They tend to come down harder on those selling rather than buying. This is of course is assuming said samples are true engineering samples...
