    having issues keeping the upgrade running...some of the backstory: perfectly fine rig for the wife...she's been using it about 3 years now for general internet and email, but it takes about 12 minutes to start & load everything (WinXP SP3, MS Office 2007) to get to email-- she wanted faster...

    Failure to fully boot into WinXP

    System used to work fine.

    I have a pair of Diamond 3870's being delivered today...any lessons learned about installing and configuring them in XFire? Should I use CCC to set it all up? Can I use ATITool to OC them, or does Overrdrive do it all now? (this is my first crossfire rig:o).

    ??new project with 19" LCD's??

    :confused:Is it possible to take two widescreen (16:10) 19" LCD's with a resolution of 1680x1050 and rotate them 90 degree so each is now a 10:16 aspect ratio side to side? Theoretically this should then provide a 2100x3360 resolution. Since 19" LCD's are now in the $150-170 range, this...

    I want to OC my AMD 64 X2 4800 (939 pin) and am going to replace the cooler. My budget is $50, though I could push above that value a little...this is a micro mobo in a SFF case, so large tower coolers won't fit. What would be the best for this appliction?

    Recently installed the X1950XT CF as a single card (basically a X1950XTX), and noticed the display on my Syncmaster seems to have much less smoothing to the background, even with all the filters turned on or off. My X800GTO seemed to produce a cleaner looking display.:( The X1950 definitely...

    Is 460W enough power???

    I am building the system listed in my system spec's, however, the ENERMAX 600W PSU pulses on and off. I have a ThermalTake 460W purepower that I installed to get it to POST. Is this PSU beefy enough to handle the dual core Opty, one X1950XTX, and a 2 HDD RAID 0?

    DFI RS482 build

    I have a Q-PACK MicroATX built around a Gigabyte AMD 754pin with 2gig Corsair DDR. I want to keep the 2 gig DDR (and use the extra 1 gig DDR I have sitting around), so I bought a DFI Infinity RS482.
