I bought a Asus Geforce4 socket 939 SLI 300HP 5-speed 27" waterproof motherboard...

Now I just have to save up for the 7800GT or GTX

All it took was my 6800gt to go out... Which brings me to a question.

I installed 2 SATA drives and had to take out the card in the process. All was well and I reinstalled the geforce card fine. Now when I try to turn it on and have the DVI pluged in, it gives me a no connection signal on the monitor. If I use a VGA cord, I get Artifacts (I think that is what it is called when you get colored pixeled boxes all over your screen). I cannot make out anything because the screen is full of colorfull crap. I sent an email to BFG Tech (the card manu.) but I also wanted to ask my fellow mmorpg members if they had similar problems and know if there is a way to fix it. I might send it in since it is under warranty or just say screw it and get that 7800. Well i have to get the pci card now since i just bought a sli board. but if i sent the 6800gt card in i would use it on the second comp and maybe sell or give away the 6800 that was already in my second comp. Make sense? :P

    What good is a waterproof motherboard when the other parts are not?

    But if you get the full package waterproof sure would take watercooling to a different dimention! Just dump it in a stream or ocean! lol

    lmao noob i was kidding about the waterproof part. I was simply making fun of specs of computer parts.

    None the less, I just bought a 7800 GT (Not GTX) for $415.00 including tax. I am actually having to use Linux at the moment because I screwed up my computer by trying to use windows on an IDE and dual boot linux on a SATA HDD. I don't know why, but Windows installation gives a blue screen error when trying that and I can never get into windows.

    Anyways, hopefully I can get the mobo monday or tuesday and get the new card in. I am also still waiting on a reply for the damn 6800gt i bought previously. I hope I can fix it easy, or at least get it repaired under its warranty.

    Gratz Kimde. . . . 2 years on this site. . . . ::::20::
    _______________________________________________________________________________________
    I recently upgraded to a 7800GT from a 6800GT and didnt really notice much except for a lot more frame rates. Nothing spectacular! But still worth the money. I get like 60-70fps in HL2 like I said nothing drastic. I used to get like 40-60fps (frames per second)

    I tried making a dual boot with Ubuntu (Free Linux) I succesfully fucked my computer up so bad I had to take to some computer place to fix it. Then I asked him if he could make the dual boot for me. So now I have a dual boot with linux which I never ever use. . . And I wasted alot of money paying the dude.

    On Time? On Target? Never Quit?
