    IRRELEVANT!: I Don't want to show off but. I was able to sell my old Radeon Hd 6950 for almost 120£ (GBP) and bought the 7970 for 362.12£. Which I find be cheap, considering the cheapest GTX 680 I could find was 55£ more expensive. Ok I have plugged it all in (using an adapter for the 1st...

    I have looked at all 4 of them! :cry: .... and non of them has two 8 pin connectors. Only 1 6 pin connector and 1 6/8 pin connector! I think the 14day return policy is a bit overdue. What do I make of FOUR 6 & 6/8 pin connectors? I could use an adapter, but that would just seem stupid if I'm...

    Sorry to bug you guys again. But about that PSU "problem". So I finally got a Sapphire 7970 HD vapor-x GHz edition with 3gb gddr5 ram. I watched an unboxing just so I would know what to expect... But mine is a little different then the one I saw on YouTube. Mine as two 8 pin connectors. I'm...

    Noted (Forgot I had such a thread going). Quick question I posses the power to delete/disable threads I have made right? I wish to remove most of the threads posted by me.

    i7 3820 vs i7 3930k

    I got swept under the excitement of upgrading... And the reason as to why I am changing to Intel is so I get better support, and though my 8150 is great! (well aware of it) I am also changing to Intel in hope to avoid all the hassle with my Sabertooth 990FX, which could also be a problem with my...

    i7 3820 vs i7 3930k

    Thanks. I was probably going to purchase it anyways, unless I won the lottery or something :p Two quick questions before you leave, 1st Will the i7 3820 beat my FX-8150 really hard? 2nd What motherboard would go nicely with the CPU? I was thinking ASUS Rampage IV Extreme, but the...

    i7 3820 vs i7 3930k

    To put this in a nutshell, I have to say like this: The 3820 has scored great on the 3DMark hardware channel, so has the 3930k. But would it be worth paying almost twice as much for a hexa-core CPU? I am planning on using my new CPU primarily for high performance gaming... ultra high. I'm...

    Thanks for the suggestions.... But since I don't live in the US (assume that you guys are. no offense intended) I'd have to pay a bit more then 300$. For example: the 7950 in my country can cost up to 565,39 USD

    Yea, sorry my bad... I can see I wasn't very clear :p 4x 6/8-pin PCIE connectors. I only counted the ONE! I am using. silly me :p however I still won't be able to use the Powercolor with my current.... wait. Couldn't I just hook two PCIE connectors to my PSU and only use the 8-pin from...

    Alright, thanks for the heads up. Has there been set a release date for the 8000-series? If not (and not released soon), I would probably purchase a 7970. But After looking a bit closer. I noticed that the Powercolor 7970 (listed above) requires 2x 8-pin PCI express power connectors. My...

    hmm... alrgiht, HEAT is a problem I'm having with my current 6950 xD so sandwiching it would probably just melt it... Since I don't live in the US I can't order it from NewEgg... and the site I'm going to order my card doesn't have the Powercolor card, I'm going to go with the Sapphire...

    Choosing the right CPU

    Hello again :D. I have found some CPUs that fit my motherboard, but I can't decide between AMD FX-4170 and the AMD FX-6200 (I'm currently using the FX-8150) The 4170 has scored some great results on 3Dmark, but is it just as good or better then the 6200 or 8150?. I'm sorta tired of my...
