    Official AMD Radeon 6000 Series Discussion Thread

    I hope that is the case. It's not that big of a deal to get a display port to dvi, vga, adapter, but it would definitely be nice to have the ability of 3 display eyefinity right out of the box without having to fork out more money for an extra adapter. I found it quite boring reading about all...

    Official AMD Radeon 6000 Series Discussion Thread

    Will the 6k series be able to do triplehead eyefinity without using displayport or display port adapters. lets say, 2 dvi and 1 hdmi for example? Also, am I correct that the 6850/70 will be slower than 5850/70 and that 69xx cards to be release at a later point will be the replacement for the...

    RealTemp XS Bench Compilation

    XS Bench My comp was really fast 2 years ago and still is, but those i7 at 4.5ghz+ are beasts. I won't be doing any upgrading till my cpu bottlenecks games though. It sure is fun to make really high benchies though.

    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 480 1536 MB Fermi

    I too buy what is best for me at the current time of purchase. Right now it looks like ATI has best price per performance and performance per watt. I grabbed an 8800GTS when they dropped to about $100 bucks, then grabbed a gtx 260 when they hit $180. Then I snatched up a 5870 on sale for $379 in...

    NES PC with HD 5570 and E8400

    the nes ports work like the original I already have that covered. I used retrozone nes to usb converters. I can plug classic nes controllers into the nes ports on the front and they are recognized as game controllers. I can use all nes controllers except for the light gun. There is nothing...

    NES PC with HD 5570 and E8400

    Thanks, the only thing I plan to add are front usb ports. I have a spare usb header on the mobo and I have seen mods where people cut the black molding above the nes controller ports and added a small hinge so you can just lift up the black part to expose usb ports and headphones/mic jacks...

    NES PC with HD 5570 and E8400

    Yeah, an E8400 is perfect. 5570 is the bottleneck anyway. I can play most last gen games in 1080p and current gen are really smooth at 720p. 1280x720 looks great on my 50" and I'm about 10' away. I really don't notice much if any visual differance at that distance anyway between the...

    NES PC with HD 5570 and E8400

    I have fallout 3, but its not installed. I have a 1 terbyte wd my book what I'm going to hook up to the E-sata port on the back of this board and put the rest of my games on it including fallout 3. So I'll let you know about the experience. I did this build with mostly spare parts. I already had...

    NES PC with HD 5570 and E8400

    I have the original board version. I bought it when it very first came out. Its the one with only 2 sata ports and also has that sleep problem where it cant recover from sleep because the usb ports lose their power. I just dont let it sleep and shut it off when I'm done. I enjoy pushing the NES...

    NES PC with HD 5570 and E8400

    The point of this whole build was to put the most power possible into the NES case. I wanted to be able to play real current PC games and not just emulators. I think the zotac itx board with embedded atom processor and 9300 graphics with built in psu is great for just streaming media and playing...

    NES PC with HD 5570 and E8400

    there is less than 1mm clearance from top of card to case. I think its actually touching throughout the length of the card. You have to remove the T at the bottom to get a half height card into this thing. Another problem that made me remove the T was that with a socket 775 board vs embedded...

    Help a noob OC his Pentium D 2.8Ghz PLEASE

    Most of us overclock through the bios, by raising up the fsb(front side bus) on the pc. This raises up the processor speed. From the looks of it, Im guessing you have a Hewlett packard. most prebuilt systems dont allow you to do any overclocking in the bios. That old Pentium D you have does...

    Early 470 & 480 benches

    well, all questions should be answered within 10 days when the cards are unveiled at PAX. I just read today that the official retail release date is pushed back till April 6th. I cant wait to see some real unbiased gaming benchmarks and what the retail price is going to be. I don't see anyway...

    yeah, you are probably right, I probably was conservative on the future of gpu power since my brain cant even comprehend such a thing.

    NES PC with HD 5570 and E8400

    yeah, its funny the way cpu and gpu power have increased in 25 years. Its going to be the same story though in another 25 years. They will probably be packing the horsepower of a room full of google servers into the size of an xbox360, and 20 5870's in crossfire in there too. HA! it sounds...

    I just put a HIS 5570 in my htpc The 5570 is a pretty nice card for the small size. I just put the half height 5570 1gb card in my NES HTPC and its a great low pro gamer. here is a link to it installed in my nes. Its definately the most power you can get in such a small package...

    NES PC with HD 5570 and E8400

    Dirt 2 It plays Dirt 2 beautifully too. If only Modern Warfare 2 supported the 360 controller. I really dont understand the logic behind that. MW2 and most games play great on the 5570 since i'm mostly playing at 1280x720, I just like the leisure of using the 360 controller from my couch. So i...

    power reset and led light A really important part of the modding of this case was leaving the power, reset and led fixture in place. When you gut out the nintendo, there is a metal bracket that holds the power, reset, and led power light in place. the nes has its own power reset clickers that I...

    NES PC with HD 5570 and E8400

    Yeah, it was dead, I'm not a killer. I wouldn't never harm such a beautiful thing as the Nintendo. I picked it up on ebay for $5.50. plus $10.00 for shipping. I'm sure that NES was happy to get a 10,000x cpu and gpu upgrade.

    NES PC with HD 5570 and E8400

    Hello everyone, I just wanted to share a project I have recently completed. I have seen many NES mods across the net the last few years and have always wanted to do my own build. I didn't want to settle for an embedded cpu gpu combo because it just wasn't enough power for my gaming needs. I...

    I need a new toy, Viliv S5, UMID M1 or do I wait for a geforce powered UMPC?

    Hi All, I am looking to get a new gadget to play with. The Viliv S5 and UMID M1 have sparked my attention and I like the form factors there. I have an atom powered netbook and have been pleased with the performance aside from the weak GMA 950 graphics. Both of these UMPC's will perform about the...
