Half-Life 2 was fun...but there's no way I'm giving Valve any more of my money for a few more hours of content. The game took them 6 years to develop and took me about 10-12 hours to beat :/.

Valve's method of packing game information basically. It's how you can have multiple Steam accounts on the same PC (with the same games), but only have one copy of each game on the computer. Your GCF files are in the <somwhere on your pc>\Steam\SteamApps\ directory edit: more info http://developer.v...

The guide you (OP) posted was for the Sapphire X800GTO^2, not the X800GTO. This page: http://www.techpowerup.com/articles//overclocking/vidcard/127/4 is what you want. You might've been trying to use the wrong bios. The guide also tells you what the Fuses data should look like for a moddable card, s...

if the memory works then it would be better to get 2GB versus 1GB.... Ever consider value memory from a name brand? If you're actually going to use all that ram (gaming, AutoCAD, rendering, etc) then 2gb of anything that actually works is better than 1gb of high performing ram, especially since you...

I think its funny how intel prices for much worser processors are still stayin high. well, wouldn't you think that a brand new micron precess, re-tooling the entire Fab plant line for the new .65µ process cores; make the cpu's more expensive at first? at least their temps are back down around the A...

The only downside of the TT BT is that some people have had difficulties in mounting the thing. Aside from that, I'd recommend the CNPS 9500. (or just go for water cooling :) )

What's awesome is that there was another price cut a little while ago. The Opty 165 is at ~$280 now.

Assuming that the skins aren't a GCF, just backup your cfg files and delete the source folder. Steam will recreate the files for you when you restart it (and since the the actual game is basically in the gcf files, you won't have much to download).

Thank you...a voice of reason. ALL of the features introduced in CZ should've been there from day 1 in source. Instead we get a buggy game with broken patches. (I play CS:S and some CZ btw...haven't played 1.6 in quite a while)

The 1.1ns ram is very nice...should provide for some good OCs. Same with that cooler...it's the same one that Nvidia uses on the quadro line.

$199 shipped at ClubIT :)

Pretty good card for the price...I wonder how it performs in comparison to an unlocked x800GTO.
