    Show me ONE single $200 computer than can run Crysis On max settings at 1920x1080 resolution, with over 30 Frames per second as the MINIMUM Frame Rate...

    And Crysis has been around for years now, and no longer the standard pinnacle of gaming tech to use for testing how good a gaming rig is these days (basically the game to bring gaming PC's to its knee's in performance).

    Utter bullshit comment, plain and simple.


    you obviously have NO knowledge in Gaming computer hardware.


    It may be true if all you play is Solitaire and mine sweeper, but for REAL gaming, this is one of the stupidest comments I have read on here in a long while.

    First where can you find a $200 computer, unless it is used.

    If it is new, then there is no way it is a gaming computer of any kind.

    Cable or wireless have absolutely nothing to do with gaming, unless you are talking about internet games, or a LAN party. Internet games are not the kind of games, that you need a gaming computer for.

    If you are talking about internet games, then wireless, is just as good as cable, because your internet service, is slower than your wireless LAN.

    Now, if you are talking about a LAN party, then cable is better.

    Edit
    Even with the games, that need a gaming computer, when you go online, your weakest link, is you internet connection.

    Now if you have fiber, that might exceed the speed of a wireless LAN.

    But I don't care how fast your internet connection is, it is not going to speed up a $200 computer.

    ArmA 2.

    The "problems" since that posting has been since resolved, was a couple people being a bit petty about stuff, and throwing their weight around, one decided to leave and play with another group to be able to allow the other guy to come back, but was already too late, and he gave up on the game, have since tried to get him to come back, but he's been reluctant, since he found the game HomeFront on PC.

    I'll let ya' in on a little secret . . . TIMO and Newegg are tight.

    If you have a problem, post it at TIMO and Resellerratings and you should have a call from someone at Newegg quickly. (Last time I had a problem, it took about 2 hours before I had a telephone call from the head of Customer Service.) They'll make it right. They do have employee's that watch both sites for complaints and they do listen.


    Harder

    I'm running at least 5 CM Hyper 212's or 212+'s in systems at home. I add the second fan and have no problem with temps, regardless of the kids cranking the heat up in the winter or shutting the A/C off in the summer. On my main system, I've never seen the temp go above 45C at 100% CPU load.

    However, I was given a XIGMATEK AIO-S80DP to try in my HTC. Interesting little HSF, with nice looking spec's. Should do well in the HTC, which is inside an enclosed Home Entertainment Center.

    BTW Shy . . . for a kid, ya' sleep too much! I'm over twice yer' age and still don't take or need afternoon naps. Go out and chop a hole in the ice and do some fishing . . . or take a Swedish sauna. It'll do the body GOOD!

    These start at $40, and go up to about $8000

    Newegg.com - SSD, Solid State Drive, Solid State Disk Drive


    a 1366 motherboard with the top i7, and 3 top of the line video cards would exceed 4000, without an SSD.


    Once you pass the sweet spot, in price and performance, the price starts to go up, much faster than the performance.

    ie. The Sandybridge 2600k benchmarks @ 9206, and the i7-980x @ 10621,

    So for another $700, you get a 10% increase.
    Not exactly money well spent.

    PassMark Intel vs AMD CPU Benchmarks - High End


    And Sandybridge is unique, as it outperforms the 17-975 @7031, and the i7-975 still costs $1045.
    I don't ever remember this happening before.

    btw, the total cost of all this is somewhere between 1600 and 1900 maybe 2200 with 2 gtx 580 with tax and shipping and most of the things are very high end, top video card, top processor (i think) so what do people put in their computer when they pay more than 3000$ for a computer..and why if the one i have can play anything with high graphic setting?

    The reason you dont see the +12V rating is because NCIX basically sucks as far as page design goes...
    Apparently the Blue LED fan is worth $30?
  • April 12th, 2011, 08:58 PM
    falco333
    well i dont really see where the amp on the 12v rail is wrote, but those 3 seems not bad any of them is better?
    btw the last one cost almost as much as the 850w, what is so special in it?
    Antec Earthwatts 750W Modular Power Supply ATX12V V2.2 EPS12V Active PFC 80PLUS 135mm Fan

    Antec Truepower New 750W Modular Power Supply ATX12V V2.3 Active PFC 80 Plus SLI Ready 120MM PWM Fan

    Its more to do with the amount of Amps on the +12V power rail than the wattage rating, but yeah, 750W at least 50-60 Amps on +12V rail should be good.

    Antec, Corsair, Seasonic, Silverstone, Thermaltake, Coolermaster, OCZ, PC Power & Cooling, just to name a few of the good brands
  • April 12th, 2011, 05:28 PM
    falco333
    okidoki, so 750w will be enough then!

    If their building it, and setting up/configuring windows, then yes they should be able to set up SLI with the latest drivers.

    Otherwise if their simply doing the hardware aspect only, and leaving software installation to customers, then YOU will have to set up SLI.

    Its not hard. Its entirely in Windows Nvidia Control Panel.

    as to the PSU... no, 850 will be fine, but more than you need. Why do you think me and JP were discussing the 650 and 750W model PSU's and linked those?


    If you were planning on running 3 GTX 580's, or 2 GTX 590's or 2 Radeon 6990's, then you might want to consider an 850W unit.

    I'm running 2 cards myself, as I already stated, a GTX 470 and GTX 285 along with a sound card, 5 Hard drives, 2 DVD burners, Socket 1366 Quad core CPU, 6GB RAM, half a dozen case fans, etc, and I'm running fine off a 750W Corsair PSU. There's enough power there that I could run at least 2 GTX 580's, and maybe a 3rd GTX 460 or GTS 450 for PhysX acceleration with the 2 580's, if my Motherboard had a 3rd PCIe x16 slot that is.

    my 2nd system, in parts in a box right now. Will have a Socket 939 Older AMD Dual Core Opteron, 2GB of DDR 400MHz Corsair Memory (both will be highly Overclocked), GTX 260 2GB, 9800GTX+, or my Radeon 4830 I still have, OR the Geforce 9600 GSO. 1 Hard drive, 1 DVD drive, bunch of case fans etc, and will be running 750W PC Power & Cooling PSU, with PLENTY of additional power for bigger and better cards.

    System will be an Overclock system, used for Folding@Home, Server, and extra Network Render node for 3D graphics rendering.
