Re: Western Digital WD TV Live HD Media Player

I still think the Xbox 360 is the best media extender... I was not digging the UI on this machine. My Buffalo LinkTheater PC-P3LWG/DVD server software does not work on Win 7. So, I had to buy a used Xbox 360 for only $70 sans games and controllers. All I need it the box and a remote I will buy at Be...

Okay, not I am having wierd error after opening up the case and switching the cards. You know when the computer posts and it shows the processor type then shows the amount of ram?

I am not trying to crossfire.... I know they are not meant to and heck the 3400 cant even crossfire (at least not the one I have). I switched slots and all is good now.

Re: Kingston 40GB V Series Boot Drive SSD Review

I am tempted..... but 40 gb just may not be enough for what I want to do. Which is why I'm buying two for RAID-0 use. Win7 takes up about 20gigs of space and I will pair it with a 1TB or 1.5TB secondary drive. Yeah.... I am afraid of raid 0. Ive had it fail and lost all my data. I currently have 3x...

Re: Gigabyte GA-MA790FXT-UD5P & AMD 965 BE Stability Issues Help

Okay so I have another question. I have 3 lcds with dvi connections and a Radeon 5870. Because the Radeon 5870 only supports 2 dvi + 1 displayport, I cannot power all three monitors on one card. I installed a Radeon 3400 to power my third monitor. So, I put the 3400 in the top pci express slot close...

Re: Gigabyte GA-MA790FXT-UD5P & AMD 965 BE Stability Issues Help

So I just re-read this review. How did you get the bus up to 279 and 319? I swear I go over 205 and the whole system crashes.

Re: Gigabyte GA-MA790FXT-UD5P & AMD 965 BE Stability Issues Help

That crackle happens every time you stress the PC and you don't get a blue screen? If so you need a new PSU, the only thing you should hear is the fan. That crackling is the capacitors under load. One of these two PSU's is the best ones to get. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Productcompare.aspx?Subm...

Re: Gigabyte GA-MA790FXT-UD5P & AMD 965 BE Stability Issues Help

Hum. So I decided to run a stress tet on the Radeon 5870. As soon as the test starts, a wierd crackling noise comes out of the PSU. Eventually the whole computer shuts off in mid test. I took video/audio of the crackling. Could a bad PSU be causing all these problems? What do you think of the noise ...
