    Just picked up a 7770!

    I got it fixed. Took 5 minutes if that this time. :laugh: So you can mate an AMD card and an Nvidia card?? How does that work?? Also, what does the power % option do on AMD overdrive? Does it adjust the voltage on the card? I haven't seen over 62C~ on this card in stock form yet so it seems...

    Just picked up a 7770!

    After a long time of being in the nvidia camp, I have decided to come back to the Radeon family. I was sick of my eco-9800gt (128bit EW). Been having trouble installing Catalyst though.

    Doom 3 BFG Releases October 16th

    I was excited when I first heard about this...but now I'm just as disappointed as when Doom3 FIRST came out... In all honesty, the game never really looked that great to begin with. Games like HL2 and COD2 blew this game out of the water graphics wise. Not only that, the gameplay SUCKS. No...

    1080p TV hook up

    HDMI it is then. It has no DVI support and it sits at 60hz. I just wasn't sure if digital connections leech some performance or not.

    1080p TV hook up

    Gonna hook my tv up to my computer soon cuz I'm sick of my 19" monitor... What is the best connector to do this.. VGA? DVI? (tv doesn't have this but just wanted to know the differences) HDMI? Is there any performance hits between them due to encoding or anything like that? Would VGA be...

    Reformat questions

    Ok so I found the disc! It is a "Windows Anytime Upgrade" DVD. Does anyone know if I can use this for a clean install on a formatted disk? Which key will I need if it's possible? The product ID under system properties, or the CD key on my case. (can't recall if they are different) Going to...

    Reformat questions

    Actually come to think about it, the virus is buried in the registry stuff which is only found in the main windows files correct?

    VRAM memory timings

    Is there anyway to change the VRAM timings on my 9800gt? I seem to get the biggest performance gain from overclocking the memory. (128-bit...heh..) I looked up the memory chip specs when I put my new cooler on. Stock timings they can hit 1000mhz. I have mine currently at 1029mhz (45%~...
