cpu oc: my mobo doesnt support changing cpu voltage afaik. i have lookied in the bios and couldnt find the voltage changing thing. so i am limited to stock voltage. i am currently at 2.6 ghz (2.4 stock). how high can i go. i know that 2.6 is stable cuz i prime95 for 1o mins it was fine and then i played gta3 for like 20mins and it wokred fine. also, i am on stock cooling.

i need help getting evga precision working. thanks!

GeForce 6800 Ultra! :D  Those things still own for their age.

Anyway, there's not much you can do apart from increasing the FSB bit by bit, and see when it BSOD/crashes.

Even more so its a 512mb version, there is still a market for them due to people who want to flash them int quadros/ riva tuner hehe or run them on their macs.


I suggest buying a better board over all.

Nope its very easy and also you have to make a paypal account but it is safe. Just be sure to not over price any thing or it wont sell. Also you can shop which is what I do. Last year I landed a working XFX 780i for $37.88 with every thing except for the I/O plate and door sign.

You may use any shipping service that you wish. I use USPS but they like the rest are a ripoff so I always try to pass the cost onto the customer.

Yawn...... Sell as is no returns solves half of the problems on the spot. As for shipping service use any you like UPS. It is very very easy even idiots use and they do. As for fees it works best if the item sells the first time around.
