Opinion's LR!?!

So, the itch to build a new rig has stricken me.. I built my current gaming system a little over 2 years ago. While my current rig has room for vast improvement, I'd rather just build something fresh for various reasons. Here's the run down of my current system: 1 x EVGA 132-CK-NF78-A1 LGA 775 NVIDI...

Re: EVGA P55 LE 123-LF-E653-KR

I like asus boards aswell, thanks for the insight.

I thought the EVGA board had a Intel P55 North bridge Chipset.
Or am I misunderstanding your post?

Also, do you have any suggestions as to what board you'd recommend?
I'm looking at an i5-750 CPU.

Re: WoW Guild Compromised!

I've played WoW for going on 5 years now. From what i've witnessed, they have a pretty good track record of restoring stolen accounts/items/gold.. I've personally had a friend that had his account hacked, about 2 years ago.. and they completely restored 100% of the gold and items. Here as of late th...

Yerp, the 4 Gig mark is pretty intriguing, i'll admit to that. But, i'd rather not stress my CPU out tooo much.. I plan on keeping this rig for a long while. In reguards to the 3870x2, Indeed it is a great deal cheaper than the 9800GX2. That being said. 25 FPS @ 1280 X 1024 In Crysis, Is that even e...
