    New graphics card

    @GT7R, Is the only reason you said a non-Ti GTX 560 because it would break the budget? I'm just wondering if you have had any issues with them since you said the non-reference 6850s are hot and loud.

    Will my E6750 bottleneck a GTX 560?

    Hey all, I'm selling the machine in my sig to a friend of mine, and we're looking at the possibility of upgrading the graphics card. It's mu understand that I can pick up a GTX 560 for around $200, and theoretically it should blow that 8800GTS out of the water. My first question is, is that a...

    What price should I ask for my old rig?

    $350 seems a bit low to me, but I'm inexperienced in selling old parts. Do WC components really go down in value that much? My feeling is that a decent quality loop like that shouldn't go down in value as much as an old chip or graphics card. I can understand those being essentially worthless...

    What price should I ask for my old rig?

    Thanks for the quick reply. That was sort of the ball park price I had in my head when I first thought about it. I don't think its unreasonable.

    What price should I ask for my old rig?

    Hey all, I recently built a new gaming rig, and I really have no use for my old one. A friend has expressed interest in buying it, but I really have no idea what to ask for it. The old rig is in my sig, does anybody have any suggestions on how much I should ask for this? Keep in mind I won't be...

    question about vista and wireless

    I recently had to switch to wireless and I'm running Vista. I have noticed considerable lag spikes while gaming compared to a wired connection. If you can get a wire running, I recommend you do it.

    For those who think Noctua's are worth $20...

    I don't think they're worth $20. That's why I buy them during HWC sponsored deals sales!

    Tubing and Tube Coils

    Most people will choose Masterkleer for 7/16" I believe. I went with Tygon but it's ridiculously expensive, probably not worth it. I bought Primochill coil, but got it price matched for $1.88 for bundle. I can't quite remember, I think a bundle of it is 40". It works well, there's lots of color...

    Primochill Ghost Fittings

    Just a tip, using contact cleaner on your board and other components is a good way to get the Feser one off once it dries. That stuff tends to leave a pretty sticky residue on things it gets spilled on.

    XP or Vista for gaming?

    There are so many different opinions flying around about this it's hard to choose one or the other. At this point I see no reason to not go with Vista if you are buying a new Windows install. As far as I'm concerned Vista SP1 and XP SP3 are the exact same for gaming. As for other applications...

    Ubuntu 8.04

    8.04 installed grub for me. But if you install Windows after Ubuntu then it will overwrite it with the Windows menu.

    He means that he wants the keyboard to have USB 2.0 rather than USB 1.1 ports.

    The plague of sequals

    Call of Duty 6 haha that just sounds so ridiculous. The call of duty franchise is one however that has been doing it right with the sequels.

    Criticize friends build before it's too late.

    Haha harsh. What's up with that mobo choice? Why doesn't he get a nice P45 or other Intel chipset. I mean why get a board with integrated graphics if he plans on getting a GTX 260...

    4870 vs. 4870 Xoc

    This is pretty much the most important point. If you're constantly going through hardware and don't care about losing a warranty or even bricking a card then there's really no reason to buy a pre-oc'd card just for gaming. OC'ing a modern graphics card is not difficult by any means, especially...

    Wow, at full load it's almost HALF the power draw of it's 65nm counterpart.

    Logitech G15 2ND Gen Gaming Keyboard

    Man I love the G15. I have the first gen which has way too many macro keys, but the keyboard itself just feels so perfect when you're typing on it. I originally thought backlit keybaords were pretty gimmicky but I would never get one without a backlight now!

    Cooling Parts Placement

    Well his pump placement is fine, and it's got to do with what 3.0charlie said. The pump gets fed not necessarily by the pressure in the loop but by gravity instead. In that photo the inlet of the pump and the res are level with each other, but they are both at the bottom of the loop, so gravity...
