    [WTB] [UK] Nostalgic cheapskate for older GPU

    tl;dr: looking for the cheapest, newest, most powerful GPU I can find, somewhere under £50. Red or green team, no preferences. HD 5xxx or GTX 2xx series (are those roughly the same generations?) or higher, if drivers exist for Windows 10 (preferably). Hello all, it's been a long time since my...

    FS/FT Thread title location

    One more suggestion for B/S/T forum is the inclusion of a location made mandatory. I know it's already possible, but there's a limited choice in locations, and not many people use it, assuming that because they're in the US, they don't need to. The problem from this comes when they state quite...

    [FS][EU] Most of my computer parts

    One item left at the moment, will probably add more later though. - Creative X-Fi XtremeMusic (2005/06 version, with heatsink on chip). £15 This is the only item that will be shipped without an original box and additional items, as it was purchased OEM. I will include shipping via First Class...

    BATracer

    A browser-based racer simulation, pretty good, and I tried it a long while back (got 6 wins, 14 podiums, but didn't finish over 20 races, never won a championship, but it was good enough for me, I didn't expect much at all). batracer.com is where you can find it Now that I've explained it...

    Free game with each bag of cheese for Canadians

    That's right, all you lucky Canadians can get a free PC version of Beyond Good And Evil with every bag of Cheese Heads. It's not just a download link or something, it's actually the full version on disc. http://www.giantbomb.com/news/get-beyond-good-evil-free-withcheese/946/ Anyone care to...

    [FS] [UK] My one and only gaming rig

    Hey guys, I'm now at Uni, and living on-campus, I have come to realise my room is a little bit cramped for a huge PC (the Cosmos is enormous after all). I've also noticed I haven't used it properly for at least a month now, it's just sitting here, rotting away, so I want to sell it and recover...

    [WTB] [UK] Cheap PSU, HDD, monitor

    Just recently was given an old PC, which will be cleaned up and given to my cousin. First of all though, it needs a PSU, and a HDD. Although I can probably easily source a HDD from somewhere, I still want to see what people may have for sale. The PC specs are: S754 A64 3000+ nForce 3 Asus...

    Price check requests and Buy/Sell/Trade section

    I'm thinking of selling parts, but I wanted to do a price check first, on here, and compare it to Ebay and elsewhere, and see where I should sell my parts, but there's nothing clear about where to post price checks. It can clog up the Buy/Sell/Trade section, but I just think there should be...

    Beta X-Fi driver adds support for features that went missing in Vista

    Either they reworked the Daniel_K drivers, got him working for them, or decided to let us all play with their beta drivers while their lazy-ass developers are on another break...

    Assassin's Creed PC patch comes at the cost of DX10.1 support

    Assassin's Creed on the PC has numerous, numerous problems. We've talked about them at length and, for a game that we otherwise loved, it's a shame that PC gamers were given the rough end of the stick. Thankfully, Ubisoft has recognized the countless problems with the game and plans to fix some...

    [WTB/WFF][US] SD RAM & AGP graphics

    [WTB/WFF][UK] SD RAM & AGP graphics Recently got myself a PowerMac G4/400 Sawtooth, and I found that the company that used it upgraded the RAM in the lazy way. It came with 64MB SD RAM originally, and they just simply added another 3 sticks of 64MB. The ATi Rage 128 Pro 16MB is still in the AGP...

    Free Penryn upgrade for Dell XPS m1330 in Aus

    We've been waiting for Dell to pop a Penryn chip inside one of its laptops -- so far it's been HP and Toshiba sitting pretty with some of the few Penryn laptop offerings in existence -- but we didn't think it'd come for free. Dell is pushing Penryn on consumers with an upgrade to the existing...

    Watercooling advice for a nub

    I am looking at water cooling for my current build (specs on the left) I've been looking about, and can see there aren't many people with a Cosmos, and even less have used it for water cooling (with some having ravaged the case to add in water cooling, which I do not want to do, at all). Right...

    ProStreet Demo

    Thought I'd get a thread up about it, talk about it here if you so wish to do so. Just installed it, seems to have files for using DX10. About to start it up, and I'll share my impressions of it later, but what does everyone else think so far? Quick update, just tried it, and it looks...

    Motherboard and RAM to accompany an E6300 B2

    So earlier today, I went to see a good friend of mine at his workplace, and I got tempted. That seductress named Core 2 Duo invaded my thoughts and my senses. I dipped my hand into the box full, and felt around, as the cool touch of the IHS... yeah, so, anyhow, I got an E6300 B2 stepping for £1...

    X-Fi Xtreme Audio PCI-Express version available

    I was crawling through Ebuyer, helping a friend spec a system, when I suddenly saw this: http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/129740 And I immediately smiled. Creative's done it, they've finally done it, they've got a PCI-Express X-Fi! :D I think I'm going to pick me up one of these soon, to...

    [WTB] Socket 939 mobo or retention bracket

    Okay, quick back story. Yesterday, got my new OCZ Vindicator, replaced my Scythe Samurai-Z. Fiddled with it for ages trying to get it on the mobo. Finally got it on, and temps were higher. I thought it might be loose, maybe too much/too little paste, but I'd rather not mess with it more...
