    Corsair's New Gold Series For Sale!

    On a side note, the CX430 looks like a really bad deal compared to the CX400... The same money gets you 2 less amps on the 12V rail, not 80+ Certified and only 2 years of warranty.:confused:

    Looks like the 5850s are dropping in price

    Whats sad is its still higher than the original MSRP, after 10 MONTHS of retail. The Twin Frozr and this: Open Box: GIGABYTE GV-R585OC-1GD Radeon HD 5850 (C... are still mighty deal though.

    AMD Phenom II x4 940 vs. the new Opteron 4100 Quad

    The point is Lisbon (Opteron 4100) isn't compatible with AM3/AM2+, or in fact any MSI boards, you will need a complete platform overhaul with new DDR3 memory and a C32 server board by TYAN/SuperMicro/ASUS, and they aren't cheap and nearly impossible to find. For you, I think youll be much...

    Sad fact is the is no die shrink, 32nm bulk are all cacelled, and 28 isnt untill mid-late next year. Also, whens the last time AMD ever done a rebrand on desktop chips, like Nvidia did so extensively? Dont say HD3000 now.

    Final thought's/Last checks

    How about the AX4 635? It looks like you aren't planning some major OCing, saving 35 for a 10% seems wirth it IMO. Though more importantly, get a better PSU, the GX is way overated. http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php?name=NDReviews&op=Story3&reid=188 These would be much better...

    I cant see anything, maybe a screenie?

    Looks like its still a FSP Epsilon design, so It should be just alright. But OCZ bought PC&C a while ago, so It could be something totally different and better.

    Partition removal tool needed.

    I think you could just merge partitions using Gparted and combine the two.

    Gtx 460 1gb oced with my psu?

    With a quality 500W+ (like that BP550) it would definitely last longer for him and be better, but considering his budget is only $250, minus the $200 for a GTX460, that's probably the best PSU hes gonna get for $50. 30A is well enough for a GTX460.. BUt If the OP can spend more, go ahead. Its a...

    Dual Layer DVD burner sata or IDE?

    If your IDE drive is the only IDE device in your system and that fat and grey IDE cable is really bugging you, SATA away! Bluray is still way too expensive IMO.
