Default Re: Recommended PC Components

you should make your own thread....more ppl will reply then
and you probably don't need SLI for a 22'' monitor
an 8800gts G92 will handle pretty much anything

nice find on that 780g Gigabyte Board, thats going to be in my next build if the TA770 doesn't return back in stock

also you should add Opteron Santa Ana to the AMD Low End area

Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, Digital Cameras and more!

even though they are 90nm, they clock like their big brother Opteron 1xx Socket 939

maybe add the regular IP35 along with the ip35-e in the mid-budget
and why are the HZ's still $160 for 2gb with all the price drops?!?
thats just insane

They just came out, and being Ballistix, I'm sure they're good. I haven't heard anything bad from them yet, at the other forums.

But I recently read that the 1GB module Ballistixes being shipped now, are single sided. And it could have an effect on it's overclocking capabilities. To tell if you got the new one or not, the old models which are double sided, have those two metal latches on top, to hold the two heatspreaders together. The new one doesn't.
