    [WTB][US] Mobo+CPU+memory+videocard for around 150$ (2010 era)

    Look man, Geeks.com has a lot of older hardware for awesome prices. (4850 "800 shaders" for 40 bucks... one of the best deals you will find ANYWHERE) (3870 x2 not as good as the 4850.. but pretty damn neat and a great price) (6870 for 120bucks... can't beat that)

    [WTB][US] Mobo+CPU+memory+videocard for around 150$ (2010 era)

    Someone hook this man up. He's using the hardware I had when I was in high school, and I'm 26 now. I seriously just built an Am2 system with a dualcore 5000+ and 3gb of ram and a radeon 4350(ddr3 version) for literally (almost)nothing. I found an HP slimline with a bad PSU someone threw...

    AMD To Give Up Competing With Intel On x86? CPU Prices Already Shooting Up

    I am disappointed in AMD's inability to compete with Intel, but that does not make AMD a crappy company. I suppose noone remembers when AMD held the performance crown back in the Athlon XP/64 days. This made Intel completely change the way they designed processors. They realized that you...

    New build does not POST. please help

    Now you're just gonna have to start swapping parts with known good ones to find the culprit. Didn't think it would come to that though.

    Help with BF3 Micro-Stuttering

    I might be wasting power, but in lifespan terms, you're talking the difference of maybe a couple of years and hardware generally lasts much longer than you would ever need it to.

    Help with BF3 Micro-Stuttering

    Screen tearing never bothers me. I always force v-sync off. It's honestly not noticeable most of the time. I just like running 200fps even though my eyes don't know it, my brain does :P

    New build does not POST. please help

    JRs suggestion will work. BTW, sometimes I like taking the battery out instead of depending on the clear cmos jumper anyway. You just know for sure that it's reset. Also, remember to unplug the PSU from the wall like he said. Sometimes weird stuff happens with electronics and power will...

    WOOT! Just unlocked L3 cache on a Propus 620!

    Thanks guys! :D Ok, JR, my NB is at 2ghz right now, and my HT link is at 1.5ghz. What are safe values for these? I just don't want instability, it's 100% 24/7 stable for my current settings which is why I haven't really tried to dial anything in more. EDIT: Wow, going to 2ghz HT link and...

    WOOT! Just unlocked L3 cache on a Propus 620!

    Here is my l3 cache bench, so I know for a fact it definitely works :) I'm so excited. :) L3 cache makes a bigger difference than I thought it would. Everything runs better. I got so lucky, not many propus even have l3 cache to unlock.

    What CPU cooler?

    Cooler Master Hyper 212. I have this heatsink and it is amazing even with just 1 fan. I'd love to try it with two though.

    WOOT! Just unlocked L3 cache on a Propus 620!

    For the 780/790 chipsets you just go to CPU config in bios and enable ACC(clock calibration) and then unleash mode. Keep the other settings on auto is what I've done but most bioses give lots of options for different core speeds and such. This will also automatically unlock any cores as well...

    I love Gintama. I watch that a lot. Samurai Champloo Cowboy Bebop Bleach Hellsing Those are a few of my favorites. I can never remember all my favorites when I go to list them. Oh well, it's not a competition..... ... or is it?

    WOOT! Just unlocked L3 cache on a Propus 620!

    I've been running Battlefield 3 on high @ 1920x1080 res on a slightly overclocked 4850, the CPU is rock solid stable. EDIT: That's my first time doing printscreen on a dual monitor setup. Fucking 3600x1080 res lmao.

    WOOT! Just unlocked L3 cache on a Propus 620!

    This is not even supposed to be possible, the only conclusion I can come up with is that this is one of the rare Deneb versions that came out right before they started using actual propus cores with no physical L3 cache. I haven't done benchmarking yet, but it says I have 6mb of L3 in my...

    R&D: Memristors And Bendy Memory

    This would be great for durable storage. They could come up with some kind of "floppy disk", which would be durable and convenient.

    HIS Extends IceQ X Series to Radeon HD 6870, Intros Highly Overclocked Turbo-X Model

    My overclock is in progress, but my 6850 by HIS runs at 1ghz core stable, with only a slight voltage bump. It just gets too hot for my tastes with that cooler that HIS uses on the regular 6850. Once I get a better cooler, hello 1ghz 24/7.

    Galaxy GeForce GTX 460 Hall of Fame Edition Graphics Card Pictured

    I personally like the heatsink design and how big the mosfet heatsink is. It's nice having separate heatsinks for the ram / CPU.

    AMD Radeon HD 6950 Can be Unlocked to HD 6970

    Ah, thanks. This kind of sucks though, no wonder I haven't seen any memory errors. Now instead of clocking and looking for errors, I have to clock and see if the framerates drop, which to me, is less reliable than looking for graphical errors(artifacts). Right now mine is running 850mhz...

    Anime Nation

    Bleach is getting better now. I know what you guys mean about the similarities between Bleach and DBZ... this is because they are both Shounen Anime intended for younger audiences. Shounen = young boy Seinen = older male (18-30) I admit though, some of my favorite anime series have...

    AMD Radeon HD 6950 Can be Unlocked to HD 6970

    Does anyone know if the 6800 series has the auto correcting thing on the memory controller? I really don't like the idea of it. I use artifacting to tell when I have gone too far.

    Logitech Z-5500 Digital Soundroom

    Nice, I'm running the z-5300e setup, with 280 watts RMS (500 peak). Who was the guy who was hating on logitech a while back.. I think it was in this thread. We argued about THX certification(he said it doesn't mean shit, blah blah). Well I have personally not seen a shitty pair of THX...

    AMD Radeon HD 6950 Can be Unlocked to HD 6970

    Wow so this flash actually opens up the shaders and everything? I've been waiting for a graphics card that you can flash like the 9800SE or the x800 GTO2. Hell even the old Nvidia 6800 vanilla could be unlocked to a 6800GT/Ultra. I just got a 6850 though, I'm pretty happy with it. It...

    ColorFire Designs Custom Radeon HD 6850 with Zalman VF-3000 GPU Cooler

    Yeah what a silly statement. Not only are there ways of increasing the CCC OC limits but there is better software like rivatuner that you can use.
