Yu and me both but either way, it's the game i play. You put your dollar down and you take your chances. I do have to admit I must be at he top of the loss list! New ones-old ones-it doesn't seem to matter much. I am just fortunate that it dosen't bother me all that much.
Perspective-I can allways get another computer. Mareens MRI's just got sent to the surgens for an eval-I'm starting to get a pull down my lower right side back muscle at different occations tht leaves me in pain an weak to the point that I'm starting to stumble agian and I can't tell Mareen-she is a lot sicker than she knows.
So I do the computers to keep me busy and to show Mareen it's all good-The motherboard will be just fine!

Yea I have to admit there PPM that you haven't had the best of luck when it comes to HW & reliability of it.
It makes me a lot more thankful of the system I have now. I've been OCing it now for almost 2 years without any failures
of any kind on my HW.

I too much can relate to the back pain my friend!
For the last month my back has been hurting twice as bad as what it normally does which is a LOT.
I'm afraid its time to up the amount of Morphine I'm taking although I don't want to because I will eventually build a resistance to that too & up it goes again!
So I'm going to struggle through another month & "hope" that it gets better instead of worse.
Although my passed track history always shown it just getting worse year by year...RRR
That's what you get for having degenerative disc disease.

I'm glad you have something to take you mind off of it somewhat.
That's the main reason I play vid games to put my mind into a different world, even if it's only a virtual one.

You and I do different things for the same reasons. You game-I find boaring. I find something to work on-something to fix, something to make things better about the computer. That I can do.I have no control over the rest of it.
The Razor Barracuda HD-1 headset arrived this morning-I havent heard a sound out out of it yet. That's not quite true-I think I heard some sound at one point.
There is no manual on this thing. The manual for onboard sound doesn't even show the color of the jacks-The SoundBlaster Audigy Isn't any help.I'll go back at it tomarow. .....My luck these are DOA and it's another RMA!
New-used it don't matter! or there is a setting some where that I'm missing. Which is more likly! ( I need to take the 5 min to install a spell checker!)

There was a point when ron was losing bosrds so fast he should have moved onto a gun range and sold them as clay pegions!
I had the Epox EP-8k5a2+. Ran for years untill I started to upgrade and then sold it.(after it put in some folding time!)
The troubles started with the new Biostar and hasn't stoped!
What do you need to get yours going?

Arrow Try updating your audio drivers...

You might give updating the SoundBlaster Audigy drivers a try.
Never hurts to have the latest drivers anyways as you will usually get better sound & function out of the audio card.
The newest drivers even work on my old Soundblaster Audigy card that was made in 2001.
Of course that's in my old system as the integrated audio I have now (Intel High Definition) is better! Sounds much better...

If you are using Firefox, then use this spellchecker addon extention! It works almost as good as Office Word does!
I use this all the time because my spelling isn't the best in the world, but its actually getting better by using this...

I think that's what they call a good 'ol Jamaican " Ya Brudduh!"

Once I got tired of the actual building of this rig-I started to look for new tires & wheels, A new 26 CD changer with a 4,875.78MHz AMP, Maybe new paint-at least 25 clear coats!
In other words I'm an idiot! And your crack about my vid card being my bottle neck didn't help!
I don't need a d*^m thing. I don't even need what I've got!
Back to building.

I didn't mean anything bad by it, I was just pointing out that no matter what your system settings are, the 9600GT will only give you so much and that's it!~

Just like my 8800GTS card & I have it OCed as far as it will go on the 3DMark Vantage benchmarks so it's not going to get better unless the drivers do.

If you were to say put in a Nvidia GTX 275 & OC it by 25-30% then your score would go WAY UP because the card
by itself does 12,000 on the GPU.

You know me by now, there was no offense taken what so ever! That's why the crack about tires and paint-all ridicules!
Buying anything more for this thing would be idiotic-but I will. This mod is completely useless except that it's fun and it keeps me from thinking about putting new chrome muffler bearings in, the really good ones made in China!
