  1. one possible problem with this. older PCI video cards are hit and miss whether they support being secondary cards. Some will definitely not work at all if they are not the boot-up vidcard. Best bet by far is to get a new card with dual outputs and use it.
  2. Oh god, what a closed minded little... The guy was right, the problem is she is closed minded - wont listen to or even consider new ideas. That was hilarious! I wonder what she is going to do once she can't sell her looks anymore.
  3. that is actually only one port, PuntoMX, the pin array holes are two ports. There is a good chance the second port is one of the four in the back, this is why I said what I said above. it is not a good idea until more information is found out about how the card and chip are wired.
  4. it totally depends on the circuitry. Without knowing that exact card or usb2 chip it is tough to say. Also, forum rules prohibit such a large image, and besides that hotlinking images is a big no-no.
  5. "a total of 300x100" is not "must not be more than 300 pixels wide or 100 pixels tall" if that is not the rules then please correct them or let me have my sig.
  6. I know I'm a little late to the party... but I have a third suggestion for the case. http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/Se...31&CatId=32 I tried this case first with my athlon x2 I built myself a year ago and I have been nothing but extatically pleased with it. I removed the gaudy "ultra" silver side-of-case fan cover, to find there is honeycomb black steel grille behind it that looks very nice. The case itself has a 120MM fan hole and is built incredibly well and intellegently. It even directs airflow through the HDD area even if you have no fan there. Here, lemme show you. As for it having no PSU, go visit http://www.pcpowercooling.com and get yourself one. I got the silencer 360 for $55 shipped a year ago. their customer support is top shelf and so are their PSUs.
  7. OK I would like to know exactly what is going on here. I have had my signature removed not once but twice within an hour, not a PM nothing stating why (the first time it had a message stating the rules for sinatures replacing my signature) It is definitely within forum guidelines, and I am more then a little miffed that it was removed not once but twice without even a PM as to why when it is definitely within the rules. The second time it was: I would love to know why it was removed not once but twice even though it is plainly within the sig rules.
  8. Go gigabyte. not too much on OC options (google gigabyte hidden F? key) but they are the most solid reliable board manu Ive ever seen short of tyan (server board manufacturer) I second the idea of getting non-onboard video and slapping in a cheap add-in card, the rest should be integrated.
  9. I own the 7200.10 sata2 16MB 320GB seagate drive. you will be amazed at the perf. Since windows uses the 'least busy drive' for swap, if I were you I would reinstall to the 7200.10 drive, and put a swapfile of set size (1GB or so) on each drive. That solves several gotchas at once. I would also install all large apps to the second drive, while small apps and OS on the 7200.10 I also like my OS partition to be 10GB to keep it from spanning large areas across the drive and increasing seek times when a lot is installed. That also gives you the best area of the disk as far as of-platter speed goes. in a nutshell: ~10GB partition on the new drive for OS and small programs (also a ~1GB swapfile) ~the rest on the new drive for high speed storage ~the old drive for installing large programs to (also a ~1GB swapfile)
  10. their only shortcoming (the s754 versions) is a limitation of s754, single channel ram.
  11. Whoa. fellow Chapel Hill resident. Heya! On the subject of HDD reliability - I find that it has a lot to do with how the drives are handled pre-end environment and in their end environment. I remember a case where a client was getting them from a grey market by the case... come to find out they had been shipping them ship freight without *ANY* padding whatsoever, just a gob of drives in static bags inside a box. Yikes!
  12. Worst comes to worst you could get a usb 'pen drive' style sound card...
  13. I have been using 9.02 (8585) all this time and have never had any of the issues you two have... I am pretty sure the problem lies somewhere else with both of you. The virus infection is probably what happened with the OP. Im sorry to hear about your wrist.... get well soon ok?
  14. ...You didn't read my link, did you... It's not how many watts, it's how many amps per rail that is drawn. modern systems draw almost all their power from the +12v line. That, and true split-rail supplies can be grossly overloaded on one rail while having extra on another. It's much more of a mess then you are suggesting, Zxian.
  15. I have GoTY but the gameplay was ruined in it. volatile ammo? a crossbow? ugh. the original UT was much better.
