Keeping this thread alive, Boss.....
Good news guys. Yesterday was my last day of my senior year of HS. My graduation is monday night. I got $13,700 in scholarships and I think school is going to be around 16 grand so I am pretty set for my freshman year at least. On another not I got my Logitech THX 2.1 speakers for my computer and love them. 200W RMS for a computer is almost ridiculous, but I love it. I also got my motorcycle riding permit today and am planning on taking the MSF riding course in mid june.
That's great, my best advice is, stay away from credit cards, also known as "the tools of satan himself."
AMD Athlon 64-bit X2 dual core 2.4GHz 4600+
ABIT KN9 nForce 570 SLI motherboard
3GB PC-5300 Kingston DDR2 dual channel (2x512mb and 2x1gb)
200GB SATA 3.0gb/s hard drive
640MB MSI GeForce 8800 GTS overclocked
^^ new toy to play with lol
Plus I got the Xbox 360 racing wheel so when Forza comes out, weeeeee.
That is a nice f*in computer. I was going to build my own, but i decided it would be better to get a laptop going off to college and everything. So i bought a MacBook w/ a 2.0 ghz dual core processor, 1GB of memory and 80 GB hard drive. I absolutely love my Apple.
Well I overclocked my PC to 2.67GHz lol. Didn't increase the voltage on the processor and I am far away from the max as far as heat goes. With stock fan on the processor it is still running cold, but I do have an 80mm fan sitting above the processor's fan, and a 120mm fan behind that so. Could EASILY go above 2.7GHz, and with a Zalman fan setup, probably 3GHz+. Didn't get the MSI card though, EVGA GeForce 8800 GTS 640MB Superclocked went on sale before I bought the MSI officially, so the EVGA will be here TOMORROW on my DAY OFF!

looks nice. If you don't mind how much did it all cost once everything was said and done?
and what on earth do you really need 3 gigs of ram for? haha hardcore gaming?
Hard core gaming to say the least lol. Company of Heros, Command and Conquer 3, Starcraft 2, Battlefield 1942, Sins of a Solar Empire, and Empire Earth are my MOST played games (cept SC2 cause it's kinda not out yet lol) Motherboard: $122, Processor: $125, Ram: $190, 200GB hard drive: $60, case+450w power supply: $70, and 8800 GTS: $380 but I have a $30 mail in rebate I can send in, so you could say $350 IF I get it.
Total: $947, $917 if I get the rebate. Some of the prices have come down a little, so may get it cheaper now. Working on overclocking the ram too to see if I can get 2.8GHz with stock voltages. As long as I maintain stock voltages, I don't void my warranty =). Then again, I do make $7-800 a month extra that I can spend on myself so, why not push it ALL the way, whats another $100. Course, I do need new headers still...but a second GTS to SLI would be amazing...oh well, theres another month's pay for those lol.
mine was going to end up costing somewhere around 850 to 900 dollars all bought through newegg and tigerdirect.
That's all the parts priced off New Egg without shipping. Then there was that $30 rebate on the 8800, so $914.42. I would say stick with 2x1GB so that saves $40 over mine, go with a 4400 or something and if you can overclock, do that, if not the 4600 is awesome, especially on power and heat usage. Mine at 2.67GHz never hit 51C after 2 hours of 100% CPU load from Prime95. If you never plan on SLI, you could probably get a cheaper motherboard, but I wanted the 6 SATA and SLI capabilities.
Ok, 2.67GHz wasn't enough...sitting 2.76GHz and the temperature is still WELL below the limits. The case I have is apparently very efficient at cooling. Now time to test 2.82GHz, then 2.88GHz, then 2.94GHz, and last 3.0GHz. 2.72-2.74GHz is the MAX I could go with stock voltages, then I was like meh, I make enough to replace the processor and have another 2.6GHz P4 behind me anyways if I break this lol.
Edit: Nope, 2.76GHz is the max I could get it stable. I tried to stabilize 2.8GHz with 1.375v at the processor, but the secondary core kept crashing on me. I don't want to go over 1.35v because of heat issues so 2.76GHz will have to do. Still, I clocked the ram as far as it could go without crashing, it can transfer 7335MB of information per second, and EACH core can do 16945 million calculations per second. The primary core calculated 1 million digits of Pi in 30 seconds. Vid card should be here in an hour, so I'll benchmark the PC with 3dmark after that and see how good this PC is.
Edit again: Yeah, the heat gets BAD at 2.76GHz with the 8800 GTS overclocked to 576MHz/1700MHz over stock 500MHz/1600MHz lol. Had to drop the processor to 2.664 GHz to maintain good temps.
I am trying to find where I can find the complete history of the final scores to each one of the games the Seattle Seahawks have played since they started in 1976. I have found several sites that list the year's total win/loss record, like 2/12, but nowhere that lists the results of each individual game. I want to see just exactly how bad they sucked back in the day.
Hey guys! i'm a fresh v6 stang owner. is there any good quality of suspension what is gona work for a 98 v6? i'd like to hear oppinons how is the ride i want to drop my car down. what should i get?my car completly stock.Is there any parts I should change besides the springs? thanks guys...
Hey man, it's wrong thread to post in, but take a look at Eibach
Time to wake this thread back up.....
I actually found that site I was looking for.. man oh man, the Hawks really SUCKED in the early years! But, they're getting better.. even last season, their screwed up "injury season," they still made it almost to the NFC championship game. The year after they were ROBBED at super bowl XL by crooked officials.
