    Radeon 5770 Incompatibility Issue

    Hey guys, I'm wondering if any of you know anything about an issue with new Radeon 5770's in older motherboards. Last night I was helping a friend install the new Sapphire Vapor-X 5770 in his rig, and no matter what we did we couldn't get it to work. He has an older AM2 system, an ASUS M2N-Sli...

    Really, really bad ideas for TF2

    A friend of mine sent this to me earlier, and I know there's quite a few people here who play TF2 that will enjoy this. I figured this belonged in the games section, but a mod can move it to general nonsense if that's where it belongs. I won't copy and paste them over since the guy made most...

    I've been needing the storage for a while, but I can't decide between two drives. Both will be bought from ZipZoomFly since newegg charges me a 9% sales tax for living in TN :shadedshu Western Digital GP WD7500AACS: $120 http://www.zipzoomfly.com/jsp/ProductDetail.jsp?ProductCode=10007811...

    ULTRA Dragon!

    Yes, I have the 'Ultra Dragon'. It's got to be the lamest name for a case ever conceived, or at least in the running. When I bought this case three and a half years ago, I really just wanted a basic case with plenty of room to spare, so I didn't really care about the name. This is a very durable...

    MacBook loses in PWN 2 OWN

    In a contest where hackers can try to seize control of either a Mac OSX, Linux, or Windows system, the Mac loses in two minutes. A good thing for everyone to know is that the hackers failed to take control of any of the operating systems remotely. It took direct user interaction to find the...

    XP hates my SM Bus

    I've got this Dell Inspiron 1520 w/ all the goodies listed in my specs. Since day one this thing has been determined to be my nemesis. I've had issues with Vista, so now I've switched it back to XP. I got all the drivers I possibly could from Dell, Intel, and Laptopvideo2go. It now says the SM...

    Laptop w/ 8600M GT artifacting on Vista desktop

    Alright, I got my Dell Inspiron 1520 laptop last week. Only problem is, it artifacts on Vista. I've installed XP, and all is fine and dandy there, but whenever I try to move a window or something in Vista w/ Aero turned on, a bunch of corruption comes on the screen. I've updated drivers from...

    X-fi on Ubuntu 7.04

    Alright, I've hunted around the net, and it seems like a pretty lost case. Have any of you had any luck with getting X-fi to work... at all? I've had no luck so far, and its the only thing keeping me from doing a dual-boot w/ Windows and Linux. And after anyone has used an X-fi, going back to...

    PSU compatible w/ C2D?

    I don't know if this is in the correct forum, but correct me if it's wrong. So I feel my good ol' 939 system needs an overdue upgrade. With DDR, AGP, and 939 being phased out, I think its a good time to hop on the C2D bandwagon. This is what I'm currently looking at...
