  1. Re: Ivy Bridge-E pricing announced... upgrade worthy?

    I believe there won't be an X89 chipset for IBE. So you will have to stick to X79 for 4820. Performance wise the improvement is similar to the difference between S1155 Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge....

    Re: Haswell i7 4770 vs Sandy Bridge-E i7 3820

    Haswell-E will incorporate DDR4 IMC. I believe the price of DDR4 will be very high initially just like when DDR3 was first launched. So the overall cost of a Haswell-E system will be even more...
  3. Re: Getting warning on boot of ASUS P4P 800 deluxe MB..fried?

    10 years of use, not bad.

    Since the CPU is a socket 478 P4, your only best bet will be another 865/875 chipset based motherboard.
  4. Re: How Many Of You will Be Making The Move To Haswell?

    I agree. My rig is mostly used for work with some casual gaming (Civ 5, Starcraft 2, emulators) and i5 760 + GTX560Ti are plenty fast. I believe the main performance difference between my wife's rig...
  5. Re: How Many Of You will Be Making The Move To Haswell?

    I had a XP2100 Tbred and a XP3000 Barton. Sold both of them before their value had depreciated to single digit.

    Re: HW to build a 2008 or 2012 server

    For educational practice, you can try out either server 2008 or 2012 on a VM rather than real hardware.

    However if you must have it installed on a real box, use one with as much RAM as you can...
  9. Poll: Re: GTX 680: Who's got one/Getting one? real world results

    Even though GTX680 is more power efficient than 7970 and priced lower, it's still too much for what I can afford. Waiting for GTX660.

    Re: End of an era

    The two Abit boards I had include a BE6 (440BX) and a NF7-S v2.0 (nforce2). Both of them had performed flawlessly until they were sold on Ebay.

    Sad to see them disappearing completely.

    considering that Ivy bridge will be launched Q1 2012, there is no need for me to get Sandy Bridge E which is a power hungery and expensive platform.

    Re: GTS450 vs Quadro NVS290

    Yes, Quadro NVS 290 only consumes about 21W of power and is passively cooled. This is considerably less than the 106W of GTS450.

    However NVS 290 is based on the G86 chip which is 2 generations...

    Re: GTS450 vs Quadro NVS290

    The Quadro is meant for workstations whereas Geforce is for gaming. I believe the driver for Quadro is not as optimized for D3D as ForceWare.

    If you are buying this for home PC, get the Geforce.

    Agreed. IMO the AMD stock heatsink mounting mechanism is far more superior to the Intel one. I was also shocked by the poor design from Intel when I got my Q6600 after I had been using AMD for a long...

    Two possible issues I can think of:

    1. the GDDR3 memory chips on your 7800GS are failing

    2. motherboard AGP slot is damaged (since you mentioned it produced unusual noises)
