It better be! Cost $600 in upgradesand another $200 (or so) when I get the item (for some reason i forget what it is, lol, my bro told me) that will help deal with the dual processors switching.

 

Cool beans! :cool:

I think I could bring your domination to an end.. but I won't.

 

You should have let us board tech geeks give a little input on your GPU. That X1600 is nice, but the X1650 is nicer, especially since it comes with GDDR3. It's also slightly cheaper (in Sweden at least)!

You don't have to have symmetric memory modules in the memory channels, but you get the best speed if both channels are paired with similar modules. I use two 1 GB sticks myself, in separate channels, for best performance.

 

Judging from Volourn's setup, I'd assume he had 256 MB RAM before and someone smacked a 1 GB RAM into an empty socket. 1280 MB!

I think he used to have a 256x2 dual channel setup from back when ram was expensive as hell and someone took out one 256 stick and exchanged it with a 1g because the board didn't allow 256/256/1G.

 

hte mystary deepens.

Great.

 

Should be quite a step up from my radeon 9600 anyway. Those 'enthusiast' cards come with a bonus electric bill. I don't need that.

 

Seriously you can't just leave a box that needs 500 + watt PS on and forget about it without being punished.

My PSU is 600W.. but I have free electricity because I live in a student's apartment. Sometimes I leave the damn thing on running for a week because I am too lazy to boot it up in the mornings :huh:

I don't pay electricity. Heh. It's all inclusive. And, yeah, this is correct, IIRC:

 

" I think he used to have a 256x2 dual channel setup from back when ram was expensive as hell and someone took out one 256 stick and exchanged it with a 1g because the board didn't allow 256/256/1G. "

 

I'd have to ask to make sure though. :o

 

As for the x1600 vs. x1650; what's the differences and hy is the x1650 so much better in your opinion. How much more expensive is it? When I went for an upgrade, I basiclaly just asked for whatever just as long as it passed reccommened specs and the price tag was around $600 total for the upgrades. I really don't know the differences between all the cards myself. :ph34r:

Dont forget that a 600w PSU will not go full blast on your bill unless you're using your computer to full blast, they're are not lightbulbs you know?

If there is no clear indication, asume the post is written in jest. This notification is meant very seriously and its purpouse is to avoid misunderstandings and the consequences thereof. Furthermore; I can not be held accountable for anything I write on these forums since the idea of taking serious responsability for my unserious actions, is an oxymoron in itself.

The difference isn't really that big. The X1600 is a good enough card.

 

The main difference is that the card you got has 512 MB DDR2 RAM. The X1650 utilizes 256 MB GDDR3 RAM. It sounds worse, because it's 256 MB vs. 512 MB, but GDDR3 is a huge performance boost compared to DDR2.

 

The weird thing is that the X1650PRO is actually cheaper than the X1600 (usually). I think that's because the X1600 is being phased out and the X1650 is trying to make an impact.
