    Sticky: Re: 3DMark2006 Hall of Fame

    Interesting: it looks like this old benchmark is saturated. I've just got 33319 - with an i3820 @ 4.3GHz and a GTX980ti.

  3. Re: Law Firm investing Nvidia for potential Class Action.

    Out of interest (assuming you ever come back), who are you, and what is your link to this case?

    Also, am I the only person who thinks that resorting to law on this is just a tad silly?

    Re: Your first PC Build ever?

    Completely from scratch, a Slot A Athlon, which is how I came to find this site. Before that though, I had rebuilt an old 486/66 system, up to and including replacing the motherboard with a K2 system.

    Re: Think my vid card is failing

    I'm inclined to agree with diagnosis, but you still ought to try a different, heavy load, game to be certain. I'd also scrub out the drivers, then load from fresh - it could just be Windows being...

    First, welcome to PCPer. The delay in your post appearing was because new posters aren't allowed to post images in their first few posts without mod approval. Second, I must be out of touch because I...

    Re: ATI 5850 screen going blank revisited

    In answer to your question in the previous post: cooling. If you get a lot of dust in the fan it will reduce the ability of the cooler to remove heat. It might even get in the fan bearings and slow...

    Re: Out of Range issue.

    Well done. Thinking about it now, missing options in menus usually implies that a driver didn't load properly. It's good to see that Catalyst drivers are still badly written...

    Re: ATI 5850 screen going blank at times HELP !

    I prefer the hardware suggestion. It sounds like the card is dying, especially if it happened over different drivers. As is usually the case, you need to try that card in a different machine, and a...

    From memory I gave up trying years ago. I think it's a DirectX thing, not a Win7 thing. And have a

    1) Welcome to the forums.

    2) Please post the problem here directly rather than just linking to another forum. Otherwise it looks like you are pimping and that is against the forum rules.

  14. Re: The disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370.

    So you've seen an ocean calm. They are common, especially near the tropics (look up "doldrums"). On what way does that make you an expert and me ignorant about ship and aircraft disappearances?

    Re: Ban assault knives!!!

    The answer to both your questions is: because nobody died. Yes, of course you can kill people with a knife, but it's a **** of a sight easier to do it with a gun. And spree killings are vastly easier...
  16. Re: The disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370.

    Nope, there are precisely zero of them.

    I'm not sure if you are being serious, so...

    Let's start with the fact the thing that links these so-called mysterious areas is the high amount of...
  17. Re: The disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370.

    You say huge, but seem to fail to follow that through? Have you any idea how many ships disappear without trace every year? And they are a lot bigger than planes. If the plane came down in...
  18. Re: The disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370.

    Did you read up properly on the fire on board scenario. As soon as the fire is detected, pilots do two things: they switch everything off, and they fly towards safety. SWITCH EVERYTHING OFF. If it...

    Also did I miss something, but did the same group of people who say Obama couldn't organise a **** in a brothel say that he could keep a downed 777 secret?
  20. Re: The disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370.

    It's on the bottom of the Indian Ocean, and the reason why we haven't heard from anyone on board is the obvious one. People seem to have some strange idea that because they are spied on in their own...
  21. Re: The disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370.

    Although it has a couple of holes, the fire on board scenario still looks best. It least it actually makes sense. The main argument against is the later course change, but that could be explained an...
  22. Re: Kingston Technology 2x 512MB DDR1 suggested timings

    Start with a 2T Command Rate. That one setting makes more difference than anything else. You'll lose about 10% performance, but if it's speed you are after...

    Do you need to? No.

    Should you? Yes.

    Will you lose data? You shouldn't, and anyway, surely you back up everything important?

    Re: AMD vs Intel

    Not easily. For a start, you'd need to take into account not just speed and design, but cost. AMD compete at least as much on price as performance. I'm sure there's a "bang-per-buck" table out there...
