    Is 500W PSU good for gtx560

    I made the same jump from 9800 gt to gtx560. Mine is not gtx560Ti though. I dont know if it requires much more power. You can look at my specs from the menu. Yours is Intel core 2 quad q8400 - mine is core 2 duo. your is gtx560ti - mine is gtx560. if your psu is not enough it will not power up.

    zotac 560gtx 3dmark06 score

    I tried with 3dmark11 and got a better score with it. I dont have any problems running skyrim with max settings. Just like you both said I have an old cpu. That's probably the problem.

    zotac 560gtx 3dmark06 score

    Some might know that I had a problem with my card over the weekend: 9800gt dying I bought a new one zotac 560 gtx, my psu handled it well. First thing I did was to run the 3dmark06 benchmark. It gave me 12191 score which it says is a bit low for my system. You can see my older benchmark...

    nvidia 9800gt dying

    I googled to learn what that meant. I gave it to some guy to repair it. Helooked like he knew what he was doing so I don't really know if he was careful enough to do that but I'm guessing it is an important step so he probably did it right.

    Here is the photo for the new capacitors, the one that blew up is the bottom one. http://tinypic.com/r/2l0pwn/5 I bought a zotac gtx560 for 200$, it will probably arrive on wednesday. I'll try it and if my computer doesn't boot up I'll have to replace the PSU. my PSU is here...

    nvidia 9800gt dying

    I havent considered ATI cards, I'm happy with NVIDIA. But I'll look into the cards you mentioned, if my PS can handle those I'll check them. I don't know anyone who can handle leaking caps, but I'll try to find some people.

    nvidia 9800gt dying

    Hey everyone, It's been more than 3 years with my lovely graphics card, but I think it's come to an end. Here are 2 huge photos of it. There are some cracks in all of the transistors (I think). http://i42.tinypic.com/wofn5.jpg closeup to the problem http://i39.tinypic.com/2w3rtlf.jpg...

    OFFICIAL Elder Scrolls V : Skyrim (Discussion)

    After reading RPS I just wanted to make my own armor. You can also make light leather armors which are of no use to mages. Maybe they will add it with a DLC.

    OFFICIAL Elder Scrolls V : Skyrim (Discussion)

    Is there a way to make mage armor sets? I'm just buying/wearing whatever comes along. Leatherworking and BS is not the way. I don't think there is anything else. I'm new in this game couldn't play oblivion, I was bored to death and had a crappy computer back then.

    Charge and buildup looks a lot like assassin, I hope that class can make shitload of dmg with powerups.

    Are you sure the other 2 games will have what DIII doesn't? I liked grimdawn yet the lightning storms in the game bothered me a bit much. Too much flashing.

    DIII Beta up!

    I dreamed what I'd do if I got a beta invite and I smiled in the middle of a meeting. Lucky me noone is looking at me right now.

    Proxy chaining or new method

    After some more reading yesterday, I figured I could maybe use tor for browsing the web. I used it at home without any problems however now I'm at work and I get the following log. I think the warnings in red tell me that I cant use these unless I have necessary authorization from the network...

    Proxy chaining or new method

    Hey everyone, I'm at work and want to browse outside of what websense allows. I have been looking for a way to achieve this with some setups but none of them are good enough. We have websense installed which censors most of the sites, I can't use some anonymous proxy because we are forced...

    Dungeon Siege 3

    Out of all 3 games it seems like the 2nd one is the one to play. I guess I'll be playing the second one a bit today.

    Is DLC reducing the value of new game purchases?

    I think DLC or an expansion are pretty similar. Time to develop an addition to the game might be the key. An expansion might take more than 1 year. DLC typically takes another 3-4 months maybe. After the games are released we see several DLCs coming up in such a short time. Whether it's a DLC or...

    Big Monitor or tri?

    Well said. The main advantage for getting led instead of lcd is less power consumption. I believe the other issues are said for marketing purposes. Their effects are so minimal they can hardly be noticed. http://www.lcdtvbuyingguide.com/hdtv/led-vs-lcd.html

    Help me buy my 32" LED HDTV

    I hope you have thrown the idea of plasma away for playing games. There can be burn ins in plasmas this is the only reason I did not buy a plasma tv. The likelihood of a burn - in happening in TVs are relatively low but the risk remains. The risk increases as the image stays on screen for...

    Question for all TPU gamers!

    I was looking for a game to play and you sir helped me find one. Witcher seems to be the one as I couldn't finish the rest of those games. Dragon age took too damn long and I got tired of having to kill 20+ mobs at a random encounter.

    World Of Warcraft Cataclysm success?

    Hardest part of learning for me was finding relevant information about skills, classes, etc. I suggest start with wowhead.com to search for basic tips on spells, talents, items and quests. PvP is chaotic so many spells going on with lots of animations. Plus I didnt know for a while what to...
