whats the XP for?
Got to repair some places pc's, dead hd
you dont need ln2 with intel!
thats a heavy amount of money to drop on computer gear sir,
those ocz revodrives look awesome..
i am just about to move back to london as i cant take the lack of work and of course money here in the countryside,
i'm soo excited!Life begins again
the rest of the UK TPU clubhouse needs to move here. Need moar drinking buddies
you dont want a mass exodus of TPU uk crew,we will bring down house prices
im gonna need to be workin a long time till i can afford a pint at london prices
the flip side of course is that i wont have to mess around with tired old hardware YAY
i rung up my old boss an hour ago and he was happy that im coming back because i work like a slave
so at least i got something solid to fall back on,the only downside now is the kids schooling :/
the more the merrier
anyhoo. just finished doing a complete strip down of my comp while im waiting. Thought id break it up early so i can get the new kit in as soon as it arrives
got a text from scan to expect delivery between 14.30-16.30 (f**k you DPD!! stop taking your time! delivery drivers dont need tea breaks!
Need to find the original box for my Corsair HX750 so i can throw it up in the FS section with the rest of the old gear thats going out. so be sure to head by the FS section later on to checkout my warez. got a lot of stuff that needs to go to a good home.
cant say anymore as tatty will come in and falcon punch me
i seem to spend my life waiting on couriers lately,but its all sending stuff out
deliveries are soooo much more fun!
got any ddr1/ddr2 or am3 mobo?
I have some DDR2 but unfortunately thats already spoken for. If your not looking for performance DDR2 RAM then Play.com has some suprisingly cheap DDR2 (Kingston, Corsair or Crucial) which are well worth a look if you can stand their snailpace delivery time.
Im not sure if they have DDR1. I think they do have some
tbh it was only to test a dell dimension c521(my boys possible upgrade) and my trusty destroyer.
i will have a mooch at play now.i looked at geeks.com and ddr2 is cheaper than ddr1 but ddr3 is cheaper than ddr2!shouldn't it follow hierachy? low to high ddr1 < 2< 3...anyways i will have a look about.
i dont suppose the dell will overclock at all unless i put the cpu in a proper mobo but that may be a good thing!so that one wont need performance ram.
finding a half height gpu might be an issue though...
Look for a low profile Radeon 5750 or GTS450
i was indeed! also the gt430 comes with half height bracket,bearing in mind the dell only has a 1.9x2 athlon,and only a single 4pin atx 12v socket on the mobo-the 430 would seem about right,i think the single pin means a tdp limit of 65,which sees upgrade uptions up to a "e" version of the phenom II quad 2.6..plenty for my intended use for his computer.
where you moving to?
Citylink dude just came, my bro's shiny MSI 6870 is here
I see your 6870 and i raise you 2 6970's!!!
(when the DPD dude finally gets here......)
Come on DPD guy!! move that fat f**king arse!!
Bo$$:back to deptford or thereabouts,anywhere south of the river would be ok for me but i have to strike a balance hence the schooling concern!
Freedom:i see your 6970s and raise you a pair of 950mhz 470s!
ahh who am i kidding,they would barely keep up with 5970s....
Here Freedom did you just spend nearly a grand on components? Why didn't you just go with 6950s and overclock them?
a good pair of 5850s can. depending your setup
because Im rich!!
and DPD guy has dropped the precious cargo off. gonna have something to eat then come back and start rebuilding!!
Havent the odds changed on getting 6950s that unlock now?
i thought it was only the early revisions,though i could be wrong.
i read a review of before and after performance of an unlocked 6950 and the performance difference was negligible
I wasn't talking of an unlock but just spending less money. Overclocked 6950s are good for the money.
oh i see,yea your right,the unlocking could be seen as a possible free bonus.
personally i have always had lots of grief whenever i went with the red team for gpu's,not sure if thats changed now?driver issues etc.
it's a real shame as they seem to perform better for the price.
Green team gave me lots of grief, but red team was fine. Probably luck.
you could be right,i've only once had driver issues with nvidia
but ati/amd its been every time bar once,and that was a prebuilt jobby so it is probably my fault
physx isnt turning out to be a great thing either,though it was good in metro 2033 and batman AA,i hope they maintain that in arkham city and metro last light too
heh my ATI drivers work perfect, Nvidia was fine too even with beta drivers so i never have had problems on either card.
