IF I delete a game from HDD drive A and instruct it to keep the saved games and I then re-install the game onto another drive. Will the game be able to locate the saved ganmes on the first drive?

Let me know if/when you want to get rid of the GTX460. I have one and I may want to try SLI in the not too distant future.

blue tooth

Just wondering how you get blue tooth keyboard and mouse. My wife bought a Dell laptop a few years ago and she ordered it with blue tooth. I have not seen any add one cards that would add that feature nor have I seen any MOBOs that have it. Am I just not looking or what??

Re: bad idea?

I have an ASUS board and installed that utility. It does not allow for PSU temps. My CPU tem did get up to 62C under load. I changed the fan to a faster one to see if that helps.

Re: bad idea?

Its a Corsair that is still under the 5 year warranty. How can I tell for sure that my PSU is in fact overheating? I am playing Mass effect 3 and the whole system has suddenly shut down as if I has flipped the switch off on the power strip. I get no warning or beeps or anything.

bad idea?

My PSU seems to be overheating and shutting the system down. The fan seems to be turning really slow and it doesnt seem to be moving much air. Would it be a bad idea to try opening it up and changing the fan?

So is there a real performance increase if you have the OS on a seperate SSD from games and other programs?
