    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...

    Who has A+ certification and is it worth it?

    Lately I've been looking into the A+ certification. It would look pretty good on a resume, and could potentially land be a better job than what I have now (I'm only a student). Considering a lot of it is based around my hobby, I thought it wouldn't be that difficult to obtain. So who around here...

    Antec P180 side panel mod.

    It's amazing what a few cold cathodes and some plexiglass can do! I figured I had to at least show off my WC loop, so I took a jigsaw to the side panel of my case. Here are the results: Day time: Night time: Closer view at night: Some of the cutting is a little crude. After all this...

    WTH Kent..."Excellent" customer service

I called them and told them I'm looking for plexiglass and asked if they could they put me to the right department. The woman connected me to a number that was out of service. I called back and told...

    Is this a safe configuration for my pump and HDD?

    Clearly I am new to watercooling, but I am in the process of setting up a loop. I'm doing it in a very cramped Antec P180. This is how is have my pump installed: It's in the bottom hard drive cage. Normally that is where I have my hard drive installed, so I would like to keep it there. In...

    Seeking advice on part selection

    Well if you were waiting to pick up your gtx280(s) then now is the time! Saw it on this thread over at EVGA forums. I can now get a gtx280 shipped to Newfoundland for less than $650! That's for the BFG version anyway. Apparently these are 'sales' but the same thing happened when the 9800gtx...

    What's your most trusted brand of AMD/ATI graphics cards?

    For the past while I have been using nvidia graphics and haven't really been paying attention the amd/ati side of the market, aside from benchmarks of course. But, like a lot of you, I am quite interested in the HD48xx series. So my question is which supplier do you trust the most? With an...

    I've got the itch...but don't know what to upgrade!

    I've been helping my friend build and research a PC for the past few weeks. I'm having lots of fun with it learning even more about all the new chipsets and gpus than I normally would have. But here's the problem: browsing on NCIX makes we want to buy new gear so bad! I have reached the point...

    Resolution of Blu-Ray movies on PC?

    I have a 22" monitor that has a native resolution of 1680x1050. As we all know in the HDTV world "full hd" or 1080p is a resolution of 1920x1080, meaning 1080 vertical lines. I recently bought an internal Pioneer BD-ROM and I've watched a couple blu-ray movies (Crank, National Treasure 2) and...

    Well the 8800GT is out and it looks fantastic. So I'm definitely getting one and seriously considering a second once I research SLI some more.

    Is there something wrong here or am I just completely missing something? I recently purchased a Samsung 226bw which is beautiful btw, anyway I plug it in using the supplied DVI cable, no display on screen. Switch to the VGA cable and everything is fine. This wouldn't really bother me expect for...

    360 with VGA adapter on 22" lcd looks like crap!

    Alright so I just got a new Samsung Syncmaster 226bw 22" widescreen lcd for my pc. Since the TV I use for my 360 is a 20" piece of crap, I thought it would look nicer on my new monitor. So I picked up the vga adapter, turn on Halo 3, and there are jaggies everywhere! It's like there is no...

    RMA your board...get thermal compound on your cpu socket!

    Alright so I just got my RMA'd evga 680i. Opened it up, popped off the socket cover to put in my CPU, and we have a problem. Amidst the pins are a whole bunch of tiny threads/woolies.

    Strange Orthos behaviour

    I have my e6750 OC'd to 3.3 GHz on air and it was running Orthos stable for 8 hours. At the end of the test before I told it to stop testing I opened a page on digg.com and my computer locked up. So then I rebooted, clocked the RAM back to its default unlinked (it was only OC'd to 825 MHz) and...

    First OC attempt,any suggestions or opinions?

    After weeks of research I finally put together a rig that I could OC. So after using it for about a week to see if it was alright, I finally took my first crack at OCing it last night to see what it's all about. I've got an E6750 which runs stock at 2.66GHz so I tried a very mild OC to 2.9GHz...
