    Help! My 4890 died:

    I see what he means though. The screw is screwed into the heat-sink. If I drilled off the top of the screw then the card would just come away from the heat-sink and that's what I want. :)

    Help! My 4890 died:

    Good point. I think I'll keep that as a last resort option though. I don't want to damage anything including the screws. Thank you

    Help! My 4890 died:

    I should invest in some. I've got really cheap screw drivers and they are wearing the thread down on the screws. I'm really scared to touch them again in case I fuck up the screw heads even more :(

    Help! My 4890 died:

    Last week my beloved XFX 4890 heat sink fan died. Usually this is easy enough to fix (replace the fan/heat sink) but the four screws fixing the gpu bracket to the PCB will not budge. Someone said to me that they might be lock tight screws and the only way to remove them is the use a soldering...

    Port Forwarding Problems.

    Yeah Mussels, I do have the right port configured. 27015 was the suggested port. My IP address is also static. I'll try kn00tcn's suggested method once I'm home. Thanks all :)

    AMD to Drop Support for Pre-HD 5000 GPUs with Catalyst 12.7

    I actually really like this! I still have my 4890 because i don't see much point in spending hundreds of pounds when this card already plays all the games i run at the highest settings. Go AMD!

    ROCCAT Kave 5.1 Gaming Headset

    What? I'm surprised at the bad review these headphones got. I have them and I love them. I admit it did take some time to get used to the weight but in time i grew to like the weight of the headset. The hiss coming from the amp only happens on my headset when you turn the EQ on the control box...

    Need an opinion

    Hmmmm you do have a point. But i am leaning towards a headset since i do a lot of online gaming with friends. My last two pairs of headsets were the Medusa 5.1s and those 7.1 Logitech ones. Having the surround sound was great for gaming so i kinda want to get another surround sound set :)

    Need an opinion

    I've decided to shed out £60+ on a new set of headphones to treat myself for christmas. I would just like a second opinion on these headphones http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=SP-000-RC&tool=3 I'm tired of spending too much money on "premium" headsets that will only last...

    Got A Virus? It's Your Fault Says Microsoft

    No matter how much hate Microsoft get for this, they are bloody right. The only viruses i got were my fault and i knew that the thing i was downloading could potentially be infected (I was desperate!)

    Now, S3 Graphics Slaps Apple with Two Patent Infringement Charges

    I am really glad to see that companies are retaliating to the barrage of lawsuits apple has fired out recently. I hope to see Apple lose a few of them to bring them back down to earth

    Using a server as a gaming rig?

    Yeah. I was looking for a cheap upgrade for my computer at my dads. I'll look into upgrade the individual parts instead :) Thanks again everyone

    Using a server as a gaming rig?

    Hello again! Sorry for the late reply, i had no time to post yesterday. I got the model number of the server and its a HP ProLiant ML110 G3 server, and good news! It looks like it does indeed have a PCI-Express slot :D
