    ASUS Designing Dual-HD 5870 Graphics Accelerator?

    Overclocking headroom? That's pathetic, is all I'm saying, for a 'MARS' product. An overclocked 5970 gives you the performance of two 5870's out of the box. This product is meaningless, aside form the RAM. Well, I stand corrected. Interesting. It just simple doesn't make sense in regards...

    There. That is exactly what I am saying. But try telling that to BT.

    ASUS Designing Dual-HD 5870 Graphics Accelerator?

    The 5970 can run at 5870 speeds easily. It's just underclocked, allowing for more headroom percentage-wise. Eyefinity 6 is an absolutely RIDICULOUS assumption to be making. It is virtually impossible. In which case, all it will have is 2GB. Which means it will have as much extra worth as the...

    ASUS Designing Dual-HD 5870 Graphics Accelerator?

    That is stupid. The GTX 295 was inferior to the MARS in a few ways, such as memory bus and capacity. The 5970 simply has lower clocks, which is meaningless because it can be overclocked to 1Ghz on stock.

    AMD Plans Successors to Evergreen Series GPUs within 2010

    All this time you've been an AMD marketing exec in disguise. Now it all makes sense.

    [FF] Nvidia 8000 series Collection :)

    Is it not folding because you ran out of slots? You could give it to me. It would work nicely, folding in my HTPC. The G45 board is locked to PCIe x4, so I'm using onboard for now, which is a waste because its PSU can handle a GTX 280. Sorry to thread jack..

    [FS][US] 6 x 2GB PC2-5300 FB-DIMMs

    Gosh, don't I feel silly. Sorry, T_Ski.. I should probably get to bed. Although, these would be great aside some budget Xeons. If only Server chips could overclock. I'm surprised Dan hasn't jumped on this deal.

    [FS][US] 6 x 2GB PC2-5300 FB-DIMMs

    Gosh, I know that DDR2 prices have magically risen recently, but 80$ for 4GB seems a bit high to me, considering I just found a single 2GB stick for 20$ on eBay. 200$ for 12GB sounds alright, but I really don't need that much last-gen RAM. Well, good luck on eBay!

    [FS/FT] Broken 3870x2, Wireless N router. Proceeds go to charity!!

    As I implied.. unless you want that X2 to fall into the pile of mail on my front steps, and you can give me a good deal on shipping, I'll take the first option :laugh:

    [FF] Nvidia 8000 series Collection :)

    Hey, don't mention it. I don't mind shelfing out a card at the moment. Right now I'm into getting my CPU's past the clocks in your sig :D I think 4.5Ghz on an E5300 on Air is the most exciting.

    Not that I wouldn't like a dead weight to hold all my mail 'till I get back, but if you could ship that card to Israel for around the same amount, I'll take it.

    [FF] Nvidia 8000 series Collection :)

    You bet I will! Team 50711 FTW! In any case, my card might not appeal to you. The heatsink's plastic cover has been removed leaving only the metallic fins and the fan. It doesn't look rack-worthy, I'm afraid. Good luck with the idea. Hope to see pictures some day!

    [FF] Nvidia 8000 series Collection :)

    Hah. It's a little early for this, don't you think? I have pretty much all the 8-series cards - 8400 GS, 8600 GT, 8800 GS, 8800 GT, 8800 GTS 640, 8800 GTS 320, 8800 GTS 512. But they're either Folding or supporting my Triple monitor setup. In a few years when 5,500 PPD is absolutely...

    how long to run prime 95 or intel burn test

    You got 36C load on an 810 @ 3.25Ghz with an H50? That's pretty astounding.. Oregon must be hella cold this time of year :) I say a 3.6Ghz-3.8Ghz 24/7 stable OC is most in the realm of possibility.

    [FS/FT][EU] Brand New in Box P5Q Deluxe

    Well, I have been meaning to increase my chain of P5Q boards (so far I have the P5Q PRO Turbo and the P5Q-E), and join another Quad cruncher. I have a Gigabyte GA-EP35-DS3R. It works perfectly, the only reason I don't want it is because it doesn't overclock Quads well, and I'm in the business...

    how long to run prime 95 or intel burn test

    My trick (so far) is to run ORTHOS for 20 minutes. I have found that after 20 minutes, whether I set it up for an hour or overnight, there is almost never any difference.

    TSMC Claims 40 nm Yield Issues Resolved

    Yes, but then I go crazy trying to decide whether to get the 7900 GTX or the X1900 XT. NOT AGAIN! Thankfully, it probably won't happen again. Fermi will beat 5870 and lose to 5970. But the real kicker will be if Fermi beats 5970 in certain ways. I know I'm getting Fermi anyway.. for folding.

    XFX Unveils Radeon HD 5670 Accelerator

    Why would 400 Stream Processors ask for a whole 1024MB of RAM? Seems terribly audacious.

    ASUS Rampage III Extreme 32 Megapixel high-res photo

    32 Megapixels is really not all that much these days. This board looks nice, but with eVGA's Dual-Socket board, it doesn't stand up. Same amount of money, more benefit. EDIT: Image does not work for me. EDIT^2: Only a single Gigabit LAN?!
