    Vista Raid Problem Nvidia

    I checked that link, but I have Nvidia Nforce 4. I dont think those drivers will work for me. Thanks anyways. I just switched stuff around so it boots off XP instead of fista, I'll check on it every once in a while to see if they got their sh!t straight. It was slow anyways.

    Vista Raid Problem Nvidia

    I have a dual boot setup with several hard drives, and when booting off the vista installation I have a problem reading the Raid 0 array. Instead of showing the array, windows keeps telling me to format each individual drive thats in the array. When I scroll down the device manager to the...

    Help getting info on my Dell C640

    Hi guys, I have an older Dell C640 laptop 2.0GHZ version. I just wasted an hour of my life that I'll never get back on Dell's website. All I want to find out from dell is the specifications. My goal is to see how much I can upgrade the cpu, memory, hard drive, and if the video is upgradeable or...

    Asus A8N-E with Opteron?

    Update!!! Well I installed the new CPU tonight.... woo hooo it worked. Right out of the box I ran a 3dmark 05 bench and it got a 9899. Thats completely stock settings, with the old 3500+ processor I was getting around 8900 if I remember. Now I can work on the 10000 mark-

    Asus A8N-E with Opteron?

    Man I hope it works, otherwise I'll be replacing the mobo also. Anyone want to buy a 3500+ thats never been overclocked? I admit that I have tried using AI NOS and AI Overclock with the built in settings from Asus, and the temps never went over 44 degrees Celsius while I was watching them. But...

    Asus A8N-E with Opteron?

    Will the opteron X2 processor work on my asus A8N-E? I checked with asus and their specs show the athlon 64FX X2 as compatible, so i guess the opteron X2 185 will work also?

    Athlon VS Opteron

    I get the feeling that the Opteron is under clocked so that when it's under heavy load it will cruise with no problems. If I go that route then I can overclock slightly and it will start to reach the same temps as a stock Athlon. I like that idea better, my office isn't hot now, but less heat is...

    Athlon VS Opteron

    What is the performance difference between a Athlon 4400+ X2 with 2MB cache @ 2.2 GHZ and an Opteron 2.2 GHZ 2 MB cache X2? I found one of each except the athlon is $40 less and has a HUGE fan included...

    Barebones PC Ideas

    I'm thinking of total cost under $900? Not sure these days what people like to spend, but I know for myself I can't seem to make one big lump payment on a system. I was going to come up with a few variations and choices, and show them to some guys I work with to see if they're interested in me...

    Barebones PC Ideas

    I'm thinking about building a few barebones PC's for a few of my friends who like games like BF2 and Farcry etc. What I'd like to know is- what motherboards do you guys prefer as far as price, what video cards, and memory types, and how much would you pay for a "barebones" system? With the...

    Who's using top-end SCSI RAID-0 these days?

    after looking at the comparisons, and total initial costs, it seems like the sata WD1500AHFD western digital raptor has the best "overall" performance. It's not the fastest gamer like the scsi, but did beat out the others for the office benchmarks, and noise/power/heat tests. Also you wouldnt...

    Help for first time Memory OverClocking

    I just bought 2GB of PNY Optima PC3200/400mhz (2X1GB). It's part # D1GBPC32OPT. The package doesn't give the timing specs, so I don't know what the original timings are, and which ones I can mess with. I've only tried pre-set parameters that the MB had in the bios, but never manually changed the...

    It's time to upgrade!

    I was planning on trying to find a 5200+ X2 processor and also 2 gigs of ram. So far the best price on eBay was $300 for the cpu, and $59 each for the ram. I am running a 939 mobo (Asus A8N-E). My budget really is less than that, but if I sell what I have now then it wont cost me much at all...

    Port Forwading and static IP help.

    yeah I'd say the easiest and most reliable way to keep your IP address static is to go into the linksys settings and choose have it assign a specific address to your computer's mac address. Then even if you use more than one OS or if your system needs to be reinstalled down the road, or for...
