Re: DFI Lanparty DK P45-T2RS7 Motherboard Pictures - Intel P45

I just wish they would choose differnt colors for the MB and P{CI slots. I mean come on daglo Pink that is one of the colors I would not be caught dead with even if it remotely looks pink. LMAO!
But I will be courious to see how it runs compaired to other MB's. Namely ASUS and Intel.

Re: MotherBoard Selection Help

That is a good choice they have ran faily well in our Lab and reasonable the CPU and memory pricing would be the same. Just check the price on wwwpricewatch.com or www.pricegrabber.com if you like.

Re: MotherBoard Selection Help

I would tend to agree you can get a E8500 CPU for less than 300.00 USD check Pricwatch.com and the ASUS STRIKER II FORMULA for less than 300 USD and Corsair TWIN2X4096-8500C5DF for about 160.00 and have a great running system, If you wanted to go with AMD you can pick up a Phenoum 9500 for about 170...

Re: COMPUTER UPGRADE

Personally I would shy away from any EVGA NVidia Chipset MB, they are or haven been prone to burning modules (for memory that needs more than 1.9 Volts) from what I have seen ASUS is a much beter Choice for non Intel chipset MB's they have a much larger and better developed R&D team of engineers...

Re: Triple-Channel Memory Coming With Intel X58 Express Chipsets

I would agree with you it sucks buying all new hardware, but lets see how it performs before we do anything.
With Current CPU's I dont see any gain.

Re: saw this over at the egg

From what I have seen it is best to use 2 modules rather than 4 in most MB's and with Corsair they will only warranty the speed of how they are sold IE one set of Twin2x or one set of Quad2x sets.

He kept the same 333MHz FSB, he just changed the RAM divider from 1:1 to 3:5 I see, so as I said the results are great to know but how useful is it? Faster memory will always show better results we knew that at least I hope we all knew that. Well at any rate it was a nice experiment and I do not wa...
