im new here help me out.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
im new here. I am not really a noob to the pc world tho. I built my current rig, and am looking to build a new one in the near future. idk. i play some bf2. i have ventrilo, if u want the info, i can pm it to u.
my pc used to be pretty decent with an x1900gt, which I had put a stock x1900xt cooler on it, which I lapped and put some mx2 paste on it. i doubt i lapped it very good. but it was 1337 and i think iwas getting cpu limited cuz i had the voltages modded in ati tool, and the speeds, i think i was managing like... say 675 core and 775 mem?

it left me when i built my friend a comp, i just decided to drop them my vid card, and pocket some cash and just get the 84gs. it suxors. i needs some money to upgrade. i plan on getting an xfi xtreme audio. YES, i kno it is the only non hardware dsp, which i why i will choose it. when i get vista, which doesnt support the hardware anyway i wont really care. yes i know about alchemy but whatever. ill still have my 128 max sounds right?

I run my resolution at 1440 x 900, so what would u reccomend as a video card? i was thinking the 8800gs since it is on the cheap, and would not be too bad. i could lap the stock cooler and put my mx2 paste on it, and oc'in it wouldnt be too bad right?

I have the 3870 and it does all that I need. It is quite overclockable as well if you get one with good cooling. I have the Diamond.

Yes... welcome Strange that a Forum Director and a Section Editor failed to mention that you should read here first...

Then post your question here... or HERE And when you post there I would reply that IMO you should attempt to get a 8800GT... the sweet spot between performance and price (but I won't post it here because I'm not allowed )
