    AHCI SSD and Raid HDDs - Vertex 3 or Samsung 830 SSD

    I finally got my first SSD (Kingston V100 64GB) and need some help with the BIOS settings. I know that it should be set to AHCI mode, but then I can't run my Samsung F3s in Raid anymore. I guess I could do software raid in Windows 7, but that doesn't seem to be as fast as hardware raid right? If...

    Good buy? Powercolor 3850 + 2GB Ram for $50.

    I bought a combo deal at Newegg for a Powercolor 3850 512MB version and 2GB DDR2 OCZ Ram for only ~$50 after rebates. The only reason for the upgrade is my brother's video card broke, and instead of him buying another low-end card, I figured I might as well make a significant upgrade from my...

I don't know what to do, but maybe someone else wants to try fixing it. Flashing it back to 12 pipes might work, but nothing is guaranteed. It still displays an...

    Native Resolution

    Do LCD monitors look really bad when they are not displayed at their native resolution? I just ordered a 20 inch LCD monitor with a native resolution of 1680 X 1050. I am going to be running a X1950 Pro in my new computer. I just don't know how long it will output with a decent frame rate at...

    P4 3GHz Bottlenecking my X800 GTO AGP?

    I was just wondering if my P4 3GHz, socket 478, would be bottlenecking my X800 GTO AGP. In other words, would I see a FPS increase in games if I overclock my P4 like 200-300 mhz? BTW I haven't flashed my X800 GTO, yet. Thanks in advance.
