    das.dude's Poor Man's Mod

    With the inside of the case in white, all the cabling protruding (assuming there will be some at least), will be seen too well, what cannot be said about a black interior :) Have you considered other colors other than white or black?

    Explain GPU usage please.

    The OP's game settings might have VSYNC enabled, that would explain the intermediate usage of the card.

    Yet another build (whoooo), mainly about GPU's and memory

    I've tinkered with it too many times already :) It's just very inconvenient, that LLC function. You want to set a specific voltage, and on the lowest setting it will still add around 0.0750 V's. Too much IMO.

    Yet another build (whoooo), mainly about GPU's and memory

    Avoid the Ga-990XA-UD3. I have that board, and with my 1090T it IS a decent overlocker, but the load line control function is just retarded. Depending on the setting it can raise the voltage of the cpu by as much as .125 V, all by itself . Can't turn it off, and there are no specifics on how it...

    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost SLI

    Upon reading the single card performance review for the GTX 650Ti Boost, I couldn't help but wonder how would two of these stack up. Turns our they're pretty great! Really impressed. Kind of wished I hadn't bought the 660ti when it came out..

    Do I need to unlock both of my 6950s to 6970?

    If you really want to flash them, then find a 6950 BIOS with unlocked shaders. It won't be 6970 clocks though, but safer that way.

    Do you use a sound card?

    Everything what others said. If you're mainly using headphones on your rig, a sound card upgrade (even a cheap one) will definitely make a difference. The increased sound volume is much needed with headphones. Totally worth it.

    I give up.I need help.

    Check both CPU's if all the pins on them are okay. I've bent 2 or 3 pins on mine at some point and the computer wouldn't start either.

    Is there a way to boost my GPU performance?

    Could it be that your current PSU is too weak for the job?

    Your PC ATM

    Your RAM sticks are installed in an incorrect order. Put both in the color-coded slots, then you'll get dual channel enabled.

    GTX 660 OEM Unlockable?

    Oh now I see. Still, I highly doubt that any unlocking could be done. nVidia probably had some half-working chips laying around and decided to still make cards with them. The price of the oem version is lower that the reference 660ti because it will perform slower. It has fewer stream processors...

    GTX 660 OEM Unlockable?

    If, before making this thread, you had done a quick google search, you would have found that those cards use different cores. Check the table in this review. Short answer: no.

    Is it high for XFX 6850 90-95celcius?

    Sounds to me like improper heat-sink contact with the GPU die. Try re-assembling the card. Also be sure to have some spare thermal paste.

    GTS 250 or HD5670?

    You might want more VRAM for BF3, but if the 5670 has GDDR5 it's might be a different story. Can't you try out both cards before deciding?

    PSU Just Exploded... What Should i Get?

    Higher-end PSU's will protect the system when the PSU itself fails though. All those additional protection systems pay off eventually.
