    1x HD6950 > 2x HD4870 CF?

    A buddy of mine got another 4870, we benched using 3DMark vantage, his GPU score was P17000, mine was P22000 with my 6950. I he doing something wrong? I thought for sure 2x 4870s would be better. Thoughts? Opinions?

    Windows not recognizing ssd

    Just got an intel 320 series 120gb ssd, bios sees it, windows doesn't. Didn't come with any software, just a small disc with some PDFs that tell me about their data migrating software. I shouldn't need this software if I just want to install it right? Thanks in advance for any help.

    nVidia GT 520 or AMD 3850 graphics?

    Just a quick one; Building a rig for the girlfriend, I have the GT 520 and of course the onboard graphics of the apu. Which should I use? I assume the 520, but I'm not too knowledgeable on these low end graphics. :) Thanks. EDIT: A8-3850 is what I mean, dunno how to change the title. :)

    The snobby .mp3 haters club!

    Goddamn it it's hard to listen to this crap, even at 'high quality' 320kbps. Rant if you agree! /rant :D :toast:

    This 2133mhz RAM should downclock to...?

    ...1600 @ 8-8-8-24 and 1.5V right? Or 1866 @ 9-9-9-24 + whatever volts? http://www.gskill.com/products.php?index=403 Local computer shop for some reason doesn't sell the 1600mhz version any more which is what I have and want, only this one. :rolleyes: Thanks heaps in advance...

    Cooler for HD6950?

    I have the stock cooler on my HIS 6950 2GB, and it allows little overclocking potential. I don't want to spend too much, around/below the $50 mark. I've narrowed it down to the Arctic Accelero Twin Turbo II http://www.arctic.ac/en/p/cooling/vga/375/accelero-twin-turbo-ii.html?c=2182...

    Intel 320 series or OCZ Agility?

    So here's my situation, looking to get a 120GB SSD for OS/DAW. The agility 3 is a little (or quite a bit, depending on who you ask) faster than the intel 320 series, but I'm hearing alot of horror stories including random BSODs and freezes about the agility 3s, which I'm guessing wouldn't be...

    Overclocking RAM?

    Amazingly, I can't find a detailed guide to overclocking memory on the internet. :wtf: I just want to know how, and how to tell when to stop. Is it pretty much on a case-by-case basis like CPUs? Or are there a few general rules I can follow to get me started. <<<<<------- My setup is over...

    32" LED or LCD TV for a monitor?

    I need a bigger monitor. NOT bigger resolution, bigger size. The reason being is that I sit at a distance from my screen, (about 3 feet) and my current 22" 1680x1050 monitor can be a little hard to read small writing sometimes. Since they dont make big computer monitors with regular resolutions...

    Another 'what power supply do I need' thread!

    First of all, I checked out this: http://www.extreme.outervision.com/PSUEngine Which seems to pop up in every power supply thread, but it gave me a reading of only 681 watts, which I was quite surprised with. And this is supposed to be an exaggerated guide also! Now to my proposed rig...
