Just a note to consider. A factory overclocked card is still warrantied where as if you over clock youself it is not. I have the 8800gts oc and it works great,

I have decided to get the HP w2007 widescreen monitor, since my family already has the w2207, and it is working great. It is all good except it can be too bright at times when the room is dark.

Hi guys, I've looked around the forum, and came across the word "bottleneck". What is it?

"Bottlenecking" is a term that we use for when one componant in a computer can't keep up with another. For example if I take a 8800 GTX and put it in a system with a 333mhz Pentium II then the Pentium II would bottleneck the video card (this isn't possible, just an example).

Guys, would a 500W power supply be able to power my set up? (I am going to go with the 640MB Superclocked Card) Also, would an extra simulation wheel (logitech G25) make any difference in the power usage?

Here it is. That is the link for the G25 racing wheel

Also, the power supply that I mentioned comes with a case, so here is the case link : http://www.newegg.co...N82E16811144133

I wouldn't use any PSU that comes with the case unless it is an Antec or Thermaltake. Even with those better PSU companies they usually bundle their cheapest line of PSUs with their cases.

Sorry for the delay, I just noticed this hadn't got a reply. 750w is bit of overkill. I recommend this: http://www.newegg.co...N82E16817371001.

Hi guys, I am planning to go with the 8800GTX, and I have seen that it gets REELY hot. So, do you have any tips?

Also- 8800GTS 640mb VS. 8800GTX? (EVGA for both) Which one is better for the money?

Depending what your resolution is, the 320MB GTS is more or less the best high end card for your money.
You pay a slight premium for the GTX because it doesn't have any competition from ATI, so they can charge whatever the please and people will continue to buy it.

Hi, I have yet another question for you guys.

Do you think that either of these processors: Intel Pentium D 950 Presler 3.4GHz 2 x 2MB L2 Cache LGA 775 Processor OR Intel Pentium D 960 Presler 3.6GHz 2 x 2MB L2 Cache LGA 775 Processor this processor is better for gaming ( pretty hard core gaming ) than the E6600??

Also, can someone give me some temperature readings for an E6600 overclocked to 3ghz??
If I overclock the E6600, should I get an aftermarket cooler? What would you recommend..?

Thx

When did Pentium Ds come in to the picture? Pentium Ds are a generation behind the Core 2 Duos. On top of that they were crap when they came out. They run nice and hot, good luck trying to overclock one. The e6600 will be your best choice on the market ATM. As far as overclocking the one you get, it will be a tossup. The way they make their CPUs they are not all equal. The best thing to do will be to experiment when you get it. Whether you have to get a new cooler or not you should have no problem overclocking to 3ghz.



Edit: :whistling: Again with the $350 Pentium D.
