I'd throw a lil' msata ssd into that mobo, mine only supports sata2 msata.
Have to agree fellas... hard to see the great ones fall.
*Going to add one more ~ my recently replaced (but not out of commission) i5 760, 43% OC since day one and not a single hiccup in three years... awesome chip.
tricky lots of hardware upgrades but which ones would I call the best. list in no order.
SSD ........ Samsung 840 pro still cant believe the speed i will never go back to standard HDD
GPU ......... 3dfx 1st of many graphics cards don't need to say anything else
CPU .......... FX8350 does everything I want still pleased with purchase
Audio ........ SoundBlaster Xifi Fatality Pro ( I use built in sound now) hearing failing to many load explosions in military (war)
cooling ......... H100i love the look love the cooling ability
could easily add more
Easily the i7 I'm running at the moment. Bought it from a Guru, it's a 1st gen... Still running beautifully!
Abit and Epox. A damn shame they're not with us anymore. I miss Hercules also, they were always my first choice when buying a GPU.
jeez, almost forgot about Hercules
rofl yeah, what the hell, I remember that too
I been using it for a month and a half, been working great for me. its a Wireless mouse with 6 thumb buttons that uses batteries with a life time of 250 hours. It been problem free for me in games, tho the software could use a bit more tweaking. You might wanna go to a local store that has the mouse and try it in your hands just to make sure it feel comfortable in your hand. As that was one of the main reasons I got it.
I agree, I love my new G602. It's very comfortable and ergonomic, and the battery life is immense. It also takes double A's so it's easy to keep running. It's rated for 250 hours in "endurance mode" which just means it polls at 125Hz. If you need 500Hz it can do that as well, but I don't bother.
gpu: Geforce 4 MX 440 PCI card, followed by a radeon 9550
cpu: amd athlon 64 3000+ venice core
currently love my thermaltake v4 case (we dont have variety or decent prices where i live)
and my AMD 610 45w quad is plain epic for me
I forgot one - my 7950, the price/performance ratio is amazing due to overclocking headroom.
this for my wife
^Oh you bought her a microphone for karaoke, how nice.
Top 5 hardware purchases for me:-
2. Xbox One
3. PS 3
4. Xbox 360
5. PS 2
with that device she sings like a star...........
^^^^ almost choked myself to death laughing
She doesn't need it when I pop round!
the thing is..... keep her busy while your little soldier is not around ......
1. Sennheiser HD650's (Seriously. I can't see myself ever moving on from these)
2. Intel e6750 (I bought this as part of a build after a house fire destroyed my old setup, amazing for the price)
3. Aune T1 (The little DAC that could, a great introduction to Valves and it sounds fantastic)
4. OCZ Agility 3 SSD (They got such a bad rep, but I never had a problem with mine)
5. Sapphire Flexx HD7950 (No need for an active displayport adapter, OC's well and has amazing longevity)
I could sit typing them out all day to be honest, so I decided to go for mostly more recent purchases.
