Another thing, you guys think that 3x 7970 and a 6990 will be too much for the modular 1200 watt Corsair psu? Can't get model number, on phone waiting in snow at boxing day line

Re: AMD A6-5400K + 4x HD 7970

Looking for a CPU+MOBO(+RAM) bundle, preferably with BF3

Right now my computer is toast. I'm fairly certain it's either my CPU (Q6600), or motherboard (P35-DS3L), RAM is fine I think, but if I'm replacing either of the previously mentioned components I'll...

Exclamation Power+Fans+Lights but NO DISPLAY

I'm running an old Q6600, 8800GTS and P35-DS3L build.

I've reset/replaced the CMOS battery and I've swapped video cards (HD 6850); same problem.

I tested the psu on a much older build (P4/TNT2,...

Hi, I've been out of the loop for quite a while. Last I put together a system was back with the Intel-dominated times of the Kentsfield/Conroe/Allendale stuff, NVIDIA's 8xxx series and the P35 mobos....

Re: Ordered a Friend some Parts
