    Re: Winchester? Venice? Newcastle?

    You definitely want a Venice. I think eWiz actually has the 3000+ Venice on sale for like $115, check the hot deals forum for more info.
  3. Re: Cheap motherboard for AMD64 with built-in video ?

    Jetway's RS480 motherboards have about the best integrated video and audio available. However, the chipset and motherboard are both pretty new, and I think a few bugs still need to be worked out....

    Re: WD Scorpio

    Here's a review of the 80GB Scorpio WD800VE.

    I'm sure there's also a good deal of information on other Scorpio models on SPCR's message board.
  5. Re: I'm looking for a better clocking Socket 754 A64.

    I'm not sure how much you're looking to spend, but Shentech (http://www.shentech.com/) has 3400+ (2.2GHz) and 3700+ (2.4GHz) Athlon64 mobiles for ~$250 and ~$350. These are based on the San Diego...
  6. Few Q's about the SL-K890-754G and Soltek K8T890 in general

    I've been looking at the Soltek Socket 754 K8T890 PCI-E motherboard. If possible, though, I have few questions that have been bugging me.

    How does K8T890 compare in heat output to nForce3...
  7. Re: Do you leave your PC on or off when you are not using it.

    I leave my computer on 24/7. Folding, of course. :D

    Re: cold vs. colder temps

    It's all physics. Lower temps = less resistance. On extreme cooling, the molecules inside the CPU are "vibrating" less, and there are fewer collisions between them and the electrons moving through...

    Re: I dont get it A64 VS AMD XP 3200+

    I could understand not being able to notice a difference between a high-end AthlonXP and a low- to mid-end A64, but the fact that the A64 was slower sets off an alarm for me. There is no reason an...

    Re: A64 X2 and Nforce3

    I couldn't imagine any motherboard not being able to handle the power requirements of dual-core. Even the fastest dual-cores shouldn't consume any more power than high-end 130nm processors, such as...

    Re: Turion kicks Pentium M's ass?

    Clock for clock, I think Turion64 and P-M are pretty close in performance. Turion64 may take the lead in certain applications optimized for SSE3 and AMD64.

    Turion64 is NOT fully unlocked, but...

    Re: So the new Dual Cores are frequency locked?

    Are you sure you didn't misinterpret the article? I'm guessing they were saying that the each core was locked in to run at the same HTT/multi as the others, and could not be run independent of each...

    Re: So the new Dual Cores are frequency locked?

    Where did you hear/read about this? Because a few early samples of the chips have been released, and people were able to overclock them.

    But then again if they're ES chips. I still find it hard to...

    Re: Is 400 Watts Enough?

    Do you overclock? If not you should be fine with a quality ~400w power supply. Something with ~25A on the +12v rail (or combined between both +12v if it's dual rail) would be ideal.

  15. Re: Man.... 754 3000+ processors sure have improved....

    Yup, in all the excitement over 90nm people seemed to forget 130nm. In many cases they're actually able to hit the same or higher clocks than revision D0 or E0.

    The only thing that sucks is they...

    Poll: Re: how much did you spend on your case?

    My current case was ~$80, and is the most expensive case I've ever bought. I couldn't imagine myself ever spending more than $100 on a case.

    True, although I think I remember hearing about dual-core mobiles. Don't know if they'll ever see the light of day or not, though. :)

    Re: How long Does 754 Have?

    San Diego mobiles should be available soon at speeds of 1.8 to 2.4GHz. With the 3400+ likely to be priced at $225-250, I think it will be an attractive option for those who want 1MB L2 but don't want...

    The picture explains it all. Even though it's a minor flaw, any flaw at all is unacceptable IMHO. Even if it runs stable, when chunks of the die are missing it tends to scare away potential buyers. I...

    Nice. But what's the problem? One of the chips arrive damaged?
