Re: Have you assessed your pc recently?

Wait, what HDD do you have again......I doubt it cost that much, they are dirt cheap these days. And R650 for that case is rather expensive, also those fans are only worth around R45-60 each the hard drives is what i spent, i bought a 320 gb in lik 08 for r400 then a month later it packed up, then ...

Re: GTS 450 temperatures??

I think I have found the problem. And it is indeed the fan speed. It stays a 30%(1500rpm) until it reaches almost 80 degrees and then starts bringing up the fan speed but only up to a around 60%. I will have a look for some software that will allow me to change things a bit hey man use riva tuner t...

Re: MSI R6670 problem please help

and to make a bigger case the 6670 was only 3 fps slower than the gts 450?? Only in very few of those benchmarks is that the case. Overall the 450 is much faster. I think your little Celeron e1500 is the cause of most of the problems now that I think of it. This morning I took my 450 out and put it...

Do a windows update. Assuming you are running windows 7 go to win update, optional tab, should have your monitors listed. Anyway since your monitor is 1600x900 and 60hz don't set it any higher or you will get either terrible tearing or your screen will show only part of the screen. If you have majo...
