    Re: What are you reading?

    Just finished "A Game of Thrones" and will start "A Clash of Kings" today.
    It took me a while to get into the 1st book but it gets much better towards the end. Also since I had seen the tv show it...

    Re: Help with liquid cooling GTX 560 GPU

    IMO it makes little sense to spend more on water cooling then on the card.
    With that $99 gpu block + at least a 2x120mm radiator + pump you'd end up paying about the same as you did for the card....

    Re: Buying Desktop replacement for school/gaming

    if you don't mind a bigger laptop I'd take a look at the m17x r4 (17" screen) from Alienware for a similar price and if you can afford it the m18x r2 (18.4" screen) with dual gpu is a really nice...

    Re: Components list. Short & sweet

    For 1440p I'd want at least an AMD hd 7950 or a Nvidia 670 gtx.
    Maybe drop the sound card (at least for now) and go for a 120gb ssd to save a few $ if you have to.

  10. Re: Should I, Could I, Would I?: The New Laptop Thread

    I could not be happier since I sold both my desktop and my older m17x-r2 to buy an alienware m18x r2 : 3720QM (+400mhz OC 3.8ghz on 4 core), 16gb ram, crossfire 7970m, 2x vertex3 60gb in raid 0 +...

    Replacing a laptop screen is cheap and kinda easy to do.
    I've did 2 in the past and it can be done in less then 30 min and screen replacement is usually available from ebay for $75 to $100.

    Re: GPU overclocking tips?

    How long have you had the 6970 ?
    I'm thinking it could be throttling due to overheating
    Maybe the card needs a good cleaning ? Any dust bunnies ?

    I have an older xonar d2/pm (pci) and before that a xonar DX (pci-e) and from what I can tell asus is EXTREMELY lazy with driver updates.

    Re: Laptop + eGPU, more trouble than its worth?

    The biggest draw back is that you'd run this from an expresscard meaning it'll run at pci-e 1x. Not sure if that would impact what you're trying to accomplish tough as it might still be enough...

    You should look up on alienware, the m17x r3 is starting at ~$1500 and would be a great choice too. You could get a 580m or 6990m in there (for more $$!)
