    Budget Build ~$400

    I'll get straight to the point. I'm building a PC for a friend who doesnt game. He does not need any peripherals/monitor/speakers. Just the PC itself. I thought the E7200 was a good place to start, but you guys may have other suggestions. The PC will not be used for gaming or video encoding, but...

    Re-Overclocking My Q9450 with stock ASUS P5E BIOS

    I'm currently using the ASUS P5E 0702 BIOS, but have flashed my mobo to the Rampage BIOS from before but switched back because I was getting too many BSOD's and driver conflicts.

    Q9450 Overclocking Results

    I have had a Q9450 for about two months and I'm curious to see how others have fared. My cpu is not stable past 445 FSB even after flashing my ASUS P5E to Rampage BIOS. System specs are in profile. Post your results. I might be doing something wrong but I doubt it has something to do with voltages.

    How Do XFX and EVGA compete... if at all

    Other than the fact that they release identical products and rarely veer from NVIDIA's specifications, why do they take so long to introduce aftermarket coolers, etc. And given the fact that NVIDIA basically controls pricing of their products from any manufacturer, why should people buy from...
