Re: SSD issue w nForce

well since the drive is in IDE mode - because the BIOS only has IDE and RAID no AHCI am I safe to assume it doesnt have TRIM support.

SSD issue w nForce

So far not a problem but I have some concerns. I recently upgraded a OS drive in my old gaming rig and gave it to my wife. Now I have realized that the mother board I have MSI P6N SLI Platinum LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 650i SLI ATX Intel Motherboard – does not support AHCI. I am worried about performanc...

Re: Interesting Thoughts on the Occupy Wall Street protester

odd I see the OWS as a silly movement with no real "win" available. It doesn’t deserve coverage but seeing as the media is in bed with democrats it covers it like crazy like its as big as the free rights moment.

Re: 6950 cant play BF3 help!

yeah with $7 and free shipping its cheaper for that then the shipping to RMA the board

In that tweak me program I can't get the check boxes to stay checked. Everytime I go back in they are not checked.

AHCI I could tell right away the system is even faster once that was enabled.

Re: Interesting Thoughts on the Occupy Wall Street protester

The federal reserve I think is at the root of the problem. Inflation is the key problem not the "1%" ... Government backed student loans is causing collage cost to grow out of control. When everyone can get student loans schools can just keep jacking up price.

Re: 6950 cant play BF3 help!

I just built the rig last weekend and go the drivers off MSI site. - Something that was odd was that Windows 7 didnt have a generic driver that worked for the nic.

I will try single player mode and see if I get the same problems.

I have a SSD, 1TB drive and dvd drive on the same SATA power. so far n...

I am having problems getting the sound card working at all. NZXT Tempest Mid Tower Ga...
