Hi

I recently bought the G41-M7 motherboard and after installing the OS XP Pro SP3
I had issues with a driver for the realtek onboard sound but figured it out all drivers are sorted now my only problem is why with power dvd do the movies run slow my only guess would be that its the on board graphics as im still getting a graphics card
yet there is no sound during the movie and it lags but everything else has sound games music,etc :sweat: 

More about : movies play slow

Is it choppy? Or does it play in slow motion? PowerDVD has a frame speed setting. If that's turned down, the movie will play in slow motion.

Try using VLC media player, instead of PowerDVD. It will have the codecs needed for the audio, and may also solve the slow video issue.

Ok my specs are

CPU:Quad core Q8400
RAM:2 Gb DDR2 800MHz
Mobo:Biostar G41-M7
On board Graphics X4500

Still need to get a graphics card but that shouldn't make a difference

Sounds like some kinda bug. To tell you the truth, I've never been real impressed with PowerDVD. VLC has been a real nice alternative media player.

Yep, I love it. It's HUGE. It's got real nice airflow. I like the motherboard tray cable management. It's whisper quiet too.

Raidmax has a reputation for being a budget case. But I got a Scorpio a few years back. Actually, I still have it. It's a quality case. It doesn't have a ton of options or fans, but it does exactly what most would need it to. Looks like your model has a few more fans though.

Keep in mind the size of the case, and the airflow when picking out your new video card. Some of the newer video cards are long, and don't fit in those mid towers.

Yeah but with my G41-M7 mobo its a micro ATX so pci slot is away from that part of the case and the g card im going to get is the GTX 260 not going big till prices die down would of went core i7 till i read on the nag site that ddr4 mobo's are coming then said to myself just build it that you can play games and wait yeah raidmax bit under the quality side of life but got 120mm fans and 80mm on the side panel which is see through and lights up blue cool enough for me

It's nice to wait for the new hardware. But you sure do pay a pretty penny for it.

Thanks for the vote :)

The only problem I've had with my case, is the pins in the molex connectors are a little flimsy. It just needs a soft touch. But the case is solid, looks nice, well priced, and pretty quiet.

I'm at work. You don't want to be me right now. :) 

There are some really nice cases, that are cheaper than the HAF though. The Antec 900 and Coolermaster Storm Scout are real nice.
