Re: Intel Z68 motherboard?

... They should have just moved up production of the Z68 motherboard and called it the day. By the time Newegg gets all the motherboards back in stock the Z68 motherboard is going to replace it. I don't get it. Consumer wishes [cost] would be my guess. A number of folks won't want the features [cos...

Great job!

Good to know that with all the irons in your fireplace and not enough hours in a day you took the time to bring us this.

Thanks! I'm still laughing over it.

Would be nice though.... O:)

If hes buying, not building, I don't think he'll be doing much in the way of OCing. If he was, then I think something along the lines of Alien ware is the type of questions he'd be posting

The E6700 would be a very good choice.

If you have the cables from the Power supply, then by all means use an individual cable for each device. While the size of the Power supply does matter, the individulal wire going to each device also matters as it can only carry so many amps. Piggy backing one lead onto another and another from just...

Don't be to harsh on EVGA about the backorder/your order time frame. The 7900 OCed KO from them have been giving them issues with a higher than normal RMA due to problems with them pushing the chip so hard. They are aware of it and working to remedy the situation. My guess is they may be stalling yo...

If this were Football: AMD is on their 25 yard line. Late in the fourth quarter. Third down and 8 yards to go for a first down. Little over eight minutes left in the game. AMD still has all of their time outs. Intel leads the game after a fantastic early fourth quarter come back. Trailing by 14 poin...
