  1. Re: What if you put "Stability" at the top of your wish list?

    If you want your PC to boot fast (and continue to do so), simply use an SSD as your primary drive.
    IMHO, probably the number one reason for computer slowdowns over time is malware/adware. I use...

    GTX 570 dies after 11 months

    I own a Galaxy GTX 570. I had a decent OC on it but with a very small overvoltage set. It performed superbly for 11 months with very good temps but then, a few days ago, it died while gaming....bad...
  3. Re: Need help with REMOTE support - load bios defaults (AMI)

    Thanks ud, I used Google Voice to call her cell and talked her through the process of using the arrow keys to "Load Setup Defaults" and then "Save and Exit Setup". It worked like a charm. I have no...
  4. Re: Need help with REMOTE support - load bios defaults (AMI)

    With Google Voice, it will transcribe your voice mails into e-mails. But so far, that doesn't work in Russian!
  5. Re: Need help with REMOTE support - load bios defaults (AMI)

    Thanks, Ud. I'll direct her to the "Exit" page and have her use the arrow keys as you suggested. I'm operating pretty much blind and deaf considering the language barrier.

  6. Need help with REMOTE support - load bios defaults (AMI)

    I have a friend in Russia who's getting the "press F1 to enter Setup, press F2 to load defaults and continue" at every boot up. I'm guessing (and hoping) that this is not a battery issue. I think the...

    Re: Highly pleased with my new GTX 570

    That's quite an aggressive fan profile. I usually start by finding the fan speed that I just start to find irritating and work DOWN from there. On my GTX 570, I found that point at about 74-75%.

  10. Chipset/Storage drivers needed for Windows 7?

    Thursday, I'm flying to Chicago to build a rig for my friend. It will be a Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit rig with a Core 2 Duo on an GA-P43-ES3G Gigabyte board.

    Re: Highly pleased with my new GTX 570

    Sorry - I don't know. Since I know I will never mess with it, I never really looked into what that referred to.


    That makes me wonder what speed your fan is spinning at. Since I never really...

    Highly pleased with my new GTX 570

    Thought I would pass on my GTX 570 experience. I recently got a Galaxy GTX 570 from the egg for $345 with a $30 MIR.

    No 6-pin power converters were included and the card had no fancy graphics on...

    I've had great luck over the years with refurbed video cards.

    I try to avoid refurb mainboards. But once, after I found out just how fragile LGA 775 sockets are (and mangled one), I sent the...

    Re: Newly built PC

    Are you getting a single "good" POST beep?

    If not, you've got a serious issue.

    If yes, your monitor isn't receiving a video signal for some reason.

  17. Re: Is it time to upgrade yet, or should I wait another year or so?

    I would think that going with a 24" monitor and thus gaming at 1920x1280 would bring your system to its knees.

    As said, it depends on what you consider an acceptable frame rate. You can probably...

    If, as according to your specs, you're coming from a 4350, the GTX 460 should rock your world. And yeah, IMHO, it packs the best bang for the buck.

    I will say that I tried upgrading from to a 460...
