    Unlocked Cores on Phenom X2 550 Stable on Benchmarks But Not Games

    Any Socket 754 Motherboards with PCI-E and 3+ RAM Slots?

    Here's a bit of a classic trivia question for all you gurus out there: I know of boards like the Socket-754 Biostar NF4 series that have PCI-E graphic card slots, and boards like the Socket-754 K8V that have more than 2 RAM slots, but I've yet to find a Socket-754 board with both more than 2...

    Hey, everybody -- I'm in a situation where I want to upgrade my laptop. I have an old Dell Inspiron 1100, with the unique presence of an upgradeable socket 478 socket with 400MHz FSB inside... It's got a Celeron 2.0GHz chip in there now, and I'm looking to upgrade! My question is... What...
