    Is there a real steal on the gpu market now?

    Hey guys, so is there? I'm talking probably the top of the mid-range or the middle of the crusty upper range. Just before that diminishing return begins to spike. Not specifying a manufacturer requirement; I was told on #IRC that there's not been much specific developments aside from component...

    Choosing motherboard

    Ah... not entirely true, Hood. I'm still continuing asking a pretty general thing. Any specific sub requests can be taken as merely suggestions. I want ANYBODY to feel welcome to pop in at any time and go "well I know about a diff. motherboard that is a real winner..." This doesn't alter the...

    Choosing motherboard

    Thanks Hood, I'm taking all suggestions. I will say I was hoping for a cheaper solution. I mean I've had ECS'es and Biostars that cost 60 smackers and stood up to heavy use. That's all I'm worried about, just periods (36 hours+) of continual use, with windows 7 or XP. I know all about server...

    Choosing motherboard

    Hi, I'm wondering is there a really good mobo for stability? Maybe something rugged, something that can take weird currents or something and remain stable? Or something so well designed it can compensate for a dodgy component or two? I guess this is a strange way of putting something that's...
