So Mustang did you have any problems setting up your mobo, Cause I know enough to know that one didnt work straight out of the box

yes his graphix card does support PCI-E. He has a 7200GS PCI-E and 2GB RAM and P4 2.8ghz. He plays @ 1600x1200 so all he need was a new gfx card :/


No, i didnt have any trouble setting up the mobo. I installed everything then went 2 a guy who could reformat my computer for about $30.

Well last time I had to work with one of those boards I had to Flash the Bios and then the system was unstable so all I had to do was the voltage on the VDIMM and it ran great. A new motherboard will increase your computers preformance signifigantly ..You as a computer builder should know that. Wink

Should watch out when buying used computer parts ...You don't know what can be wrong with them. Atleast with brand new parts, If they are faulty out of the box you can return them for a new one.

ATI is equal to NVIDIA 9000class. But, NVIDIA has better software than ATI.

Also, now most large companies will send you a whole new item for your computer if you shipped via UPS, no questions asked. FedEx is apparently the only company that can be "trusted" to ship insured. But, that's only if you bought the item brand new. They don't cover used, obviously.

ATi and Nvidia are pretty equal, Just depends on personal preferance. Only problems I've had with ATi is it doesnt work well with AA and AF at high levels, It tends to get skippy

WOW! I didnt know that. I only use 4xAA Crysis so thats probz why. I only get about 2-5fps LESS from going from no AA

Depends really on what games you play with AA and AF on really. I always had problems with FPS drops on games like Doom 3 and Quake 4 when I'd turn my AA on, More so Quake 4, I'd get FPS chug if I exceeded 4x. Then after I downloaded the new drivers for my ATi card I couldn't use AA at all or all of my games would crash, pain in the ass really.

No dude u dont understand. Crysis is the most intense game ever! With a $5000 RIG (not mine, a diff guys, JUST the comp, no monitor etc) u get about 35fps Very High DX10 1920x1200. With an Nvidia card going from no AA to 4XAA u get down to about 28fps from 35. With ATI, from 45 u get down to about 42, ATI pwn for AA and picture quality....this coming from an Nvidia fanboi.

Ah well, I've always had problems with ATi drivers, I didnt really like Crysis, It was basically made to be a showcase of graphical power but underneath all its prettiness It was your basic Aliens taking over the world FPS. Was the same in 04 when Doom 3 came out, Best graphics out there, but the whole alien taking over plot

I had to remember an old password here. If you were to have accepted my add last year on Xfire, you would have known that by now I am still active around most of quake.

Just click this Xfire icon:
I still have a lot of recent activity going on. Laughing

Silent has the same computer case as me, your desk looks rly neat lol.

Manufacturer: Merkage
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU 930 @ 2.80GHz (8 CPUs), ~2.8GHz
Memory: 6144MB RAM (6gb ddr3 tri-channel) OCZ gold 1333
Hard Drive: 500 GB+150GB - 650gb total internal
Video Card: ATI Radeon HD 4890 - low number, but still up there with the best, i think it's still in the top 20 or 15 atleast.

Monitor: still using a CRT monitor Smile

Sound Card: onboard Digital Audio (HDMI) (High Definition Audio Device)
Speakers/Headphones: Skull Candy Skull Crushers - Snoop Dogg Edition
Keyboard: Logitech G15 Gaming Keyboard.
Mouse: Roccat Kone Gaming Mouse
Mouse Surface: Gel Mouse Pad.
Operating System: Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit
Motherboard: Asus P6T Deluxe V2
Computer Case: Antec Twelve Hundred (1200)

I have plans to upgrade further once I have some cash put away, other things to do before that though.

Future upgrades:

Get a high capacity SSD
Replace 4890 with a more beefy card (or cards (2-3 of possible 4)
Get a -big- monitor with low ms response time Very Happy
Get another 6gb tri-channel kit to have 12gb total both running in tri-channel
Get roccat kone+ (new one) mouse
Get another gaming keyboard, haven't decided yet. G20 looks good but will wait for price drop.
Replace my gaming chair with a newer one. (probably do this first)
Spend long hours fixing my cable management, atm it's all hidden at the back of the tray but its messy as anything lol


incase you were wondering, this is my chair:




It has a speaker at both sides of the headrest and a massive subwoofer in the back so you can feel like you just got pwnt when you get shot in the face with a rocket <3

im going to upgrade it though to a newer model as its a bit old now, probably get this one:

havent decided Smile

I had 2 of those chairs a long time ago. Not that exact one but from the same brand and stuff but little kids ruined them lol. It just freed up space in my tiny room anyways when I got rid of them.

The antec 1200 is pretty kick ass and has a good price for a full tower.

My upgrades are a new 6870 and a corsair H70 mabey for some more overclocking. SSD someday too but thats not really at all important to me right now.

That would be pretty cool. My friend has a case that is a competitor spin off of the antec 900 and it has red leds and it looks pretty cool and he has an asus crosshair iv to with it as well so it looks really awesome.
