Re: DDR3-1800 and Rampage II Extreme (mix kits?)

"Per ASUS, Intel XMP and DDR3-1600 or higher speed is supported in one DIMM per channel only." (<-- quote fr...

DDR3-1800 and Rampage II Extreme (mix kits?)

Hi, some months ago I bought an ASUS Rampage II Extreme. The idea, of course, was to overclock ([email protected].92GHz). The fact is, at that time, I considered 3 GB triple channel DDR-14400 (1800Mhz) would do. I bought a kingston kit. Now, due to windows 7, and the need of more RAM for CFD (3GB has proven to ...

Re: Advice on an Apple Purchase

The mini. You can always use a separated display. You will always be able to use the mini as HTPC (by far the best platform: silent, powerful, integrated). I have an old mini which came with a coreduo core, I change it to a T7600, and is still my best htpc in home. I would pick up the mini just for ...

Re: ABS Tigas Super Full Tower Chassis Review

!! Its a LIAN LI PC-77A the only difference is the disk bay system. The whole design is more than 2 years old. Not only isn't cheap, but is a COPY of another product (probably licenced). I bought my lian li for about 240€ an year ago. You can check the pictures in lian-li's site: http://www.lian-li....

I'm relly curious about where GTX 280/285 fits there. You have a couple of tests, It would be great to have some comparision (not only in 3dmark) charts.

Re: 8600GT(S) or Radeon 1950PRO or...?

Also take into account which of one has a lower power consumption. Try to look for prices/cards in alternate.net for poland (If shops cannot be recommended please edit my post). 1750PLN are about 500 euros. Is a cheap computer indeed for a 8800GTS.

Re: 8600GT(S) or Radeon 1950PRO or...?

I still thing that a 8600GT is not a good choice. You can buy a 8800GTS for about 200€ which is a 1/3 of a ~600€ computer. If 200€ is too much between that and 100€ 8600GT you can always buy a 150€ 9600GT... If, as you said, the first component you're interested (you'll build the computer around it)...

None of them. [-X Too old. Save a little more money and go for at least a 8800GTS. Also forget about DDR2. I've got 2 8600GT, thats why I tell you this. O:)
