  1. my current build specs are as follows, Case: Thermaltake Armor (with 250mm side fan) CPU: Intel 6800 Extreme @ 3.3ghz CPU Cooler: Vigor Gaming Monsoon II Memory: 4gig OCZ DDR2 PC8500 Plat. Video: 2 x EVGA 8800GTX in SLI HD: 4 x WD Caviar SE16 SATA2 (3 internal & 1 external) DVD 1: Plextor 755SA DVD 2: HP DVD 840E PS: Enermax Galaxy 1000 watt OS: XP Professional / Vista Ultimate Although my system could handle the 64bit version most of my software wouldn't. I was just wondering if indeed Vista had the same memory mapping issue as XP did, and if it did could I make the ram drive to speed up the system by placing the swap file there instead of on a hard drive. Thanks again.
  2. When I built my system I over did the memory and built it with 4gig of ram. Currently I am running XP pro but my Vista Ultimate will arrive today. Windows XP in control panel shows system memory as 2.5 gig. If Vista 32bit address the same way it should show the same. My question is it possible to create a ram drive before Vista loads and place the swap file on the 1.5gig that Windows can't address? Sorry if this was asked before. Thank in Advance!!!
  3. I don't have pictures yet but here are the specs: CPU: Intel x6800 core duo extreme Memory: 4 GB OCZ DDR2 800 Platinum Rev 2 Mobo: EVGA 122-ck-nf68-ar NVIDIA 680i chipset Video: EVGA 768MB e-GeForce 8800 GTX (2 in sli) PSU: Enermax Galaxy 1000 watt Cpu cooler: Vigor Gaming Monsoon 2 active tec Case: Black Thermaltake Armor with optional 25cm side fan Sound: Creativelabs XFI Platinum Storage: Four 500 gig SATA 2 3gig hard drives, 1 is external Plextor 755SA SATA Dual layer burner HP dvd/cdr&rw burner with lightscribe The Build has change a couple times it started out with 2 ASUS 7950gx2's in Quad Sli on a ASUS P5N32 sli Premium, now it will be the EVGA board and two 8800gtx's in sli, they are faster and DX10 compliant. When the first build was done the rig was some what quiet. The loudest thing was and still is the Vigor cooler, but it works so well, CPU temp 31c (idle) and 37c (under load), that I live with it. The only other thing I will add is a dedicated water cooling system for the video cards when the blocks are out. Pictures will follow this weekend.
  4. I am confused about somenthing, the total amount of phyiscal memory that Windows XP Pro. can address is supposed to be 4gb. Now the confusing part to me is, is that ram only? My system consists of 4gb of ram, 2gb video ram, 2 meg L2 cache, and what ever memory the Creativelabs XFI plat. has on it. Is there too much memory for windows to address correctly?

    No, I recieved Windows and Vista from newegg I didn't get scammed, Iwas just wondering if it was worth a try or not.

    Vista DVD?

    I ordered a copy of Windows XP Pro x64 and recieved a copy of Vista beta 2 with it and a key for vista. Should I install it? How long are the keys they send with the DVD's good for? My system is as follows: Cpu=Conroe X6800e Mobo=Intel D975XBX sound=XF-I Platinum video=Asus 7950gx2 memmery=4gb OCZ DDR2 800 rev 2 Is it worth a shot? Please Help?
  7. I would stop looking here for answers to your problem, there won't be many.
  8. Ok the phyx card will sit on the shelf for now. All of the hardware was already purchased when I realized the shortae of PCI slots. My next question, does anyone know if they plan on making a motherboard with more than two PCI slots on it and/or PCI slots that aren't blocked when running a sli config?Speakers are Klipsch pro media 5.1. Thank you all for your input.
  9. Saw you post on another thread, I will use it to do work on both audio and video files. The multiple inputs on the SB will come in handy. But when ther is more support for physx in gaming that will come in handy to. Still Undecided...
  10. This weekend I finished ordering all of the hardware for my next computer and just realized I will have to leave out one card because of a lack of PCI slots. Build is as follows: Intel Core 2 Extreme X6800 Retail Asus P5N32-SLI SE Deluxe Enermax 1000 watt ps 2- Asus 7950GX2 Video cards 4 gig OCZ Platinum DDR2 800 ? Soundblaster X-FI Platinum ? Asus 90 - C1CHFA-HUAY1 PhysX card The question marks are the problem cards. Please give me your opinions. Thank You.
  11. I recently purchased an HP Pavilion a1467c media center pc with am AMD 64x2 4200 and all the other misc crap they put in it and instal on it. When removing one of the sata connectors the plastic base came off of the mother board. I got it put back and it works. But that isn't the problem I have. The mobo mfg is MSI I was wondering if I replace it with another MSI micro atx mobo with an ATI chipset would I be able to use the rescue disks that I made for the old mobo. I don't know if HP is like Dell and does the bios check before they instal or repair. I also am unsure if it did instal would Windows MCE be forgiving enought to run until I got the correct chipset drivers installed. Please help if possible. Thank You.
  12. A PSU is the power supply. Also make sure that your CPU, Chipset fans are working (assuming it has a chipset fan). Use Maxblast to check the hard drive for errors you may have bad clusters or the drive may be not be spinning correctly. Goodluck
  13. Ok I know that this is a dumd question but let me explain myself. I have almost 160gig of music, complete cd's and when viewin them I am sick of switching the view to list. Is there a way that I can make the list view the default for all file on the computer? I looked in control panel, file and folder options already and could't find anything. Thanks in advance.
