    Best way to connect PC and Games Consoles to same Speaker System?

    I've got a set of Creative Labs Inspire 5100 speakers that I use with my TV set up - using a Creative DDTS-100 decoder to connect my PS2 and XBox via optical cables for true 5.1 with movies (and the odd game), and connecting my GameCube and TV via analogue to upmix to 5.1. I love that set up...

    Is there a Socket 478 Mobo with SATA 2?

    I need some new hard drives. Partly because one has completely failed and partly because I need more storage space. Because the price difference is negligible I've bought a pair of SATA 2 hard drives even though my motherboard will only run them at ATA-150 instead of ATA-300. But then I...

    Ideal temperatures for an X800 XT?

    lol, no it doesn't seem like you even read the first sentence that said 'I've got an Asus X800 XT that I bought at Christmas and added an Arctic Cooler to it', so i've got the same cooler on my card as INSTG8R who is getting the same idle temperature, but under load its 20 degrees below mine...

    Problems with Asus X800 Pro TVD BIOS Flash

    correction - it does not work with a Pro BIOS @ 16pipelines however it does work with 12 pipelines at XTPE speeds so i think a defective pipeline is the problem here

    Problems with Asus X800 Pro TVD BIOS Flash

    well after trying various BIOSs today, and testing at different speeds, i've found that i can't get my card to function properly with an XT BIOS at all, even if its XT clocked at 500/500. using a Pro BIOS, it works when its overclocked to XTPE speeds (520/560) it also works with a Pro BIOS...
