680i/780i/790i are overpriced anyways
If you need SLI you can go for the 750i offerings...

I'm sorry, but you have the wrong definition.  You are referring to the scientific definition used in physics and mechanics, where I was referring to "quantum" as meaning a "measurable / countable amount" of difference.  In it's adjective form, it can also mean "significant."

It's all there man
http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/quantum
Dictionary.com Unabridged: Definition #6
American Heritage Dictionary: Definitions #1, 2, 3

 Wink

You spoke of "quantum leap" which I consider as sientific only Smiley
Even I know in German they use the same shit to say "significant". Even if a dictionary states it and everyone speaks that way, it's still bullshit  Wink

18  Hardware / Power Supply - PSU / Re: Is a 750w PSU (825w peak) Suitable for "GT200" 9900GTX SLi? on: May 01, 2008, 10:50:33 PM
Um, the QX9650 is not old.  It's in fact one of Intel's new Extreme Edition CPUs, making it a reference point for anything else if EIST so happened to function better on any particular CPU.  It's also not an "E-series" CPU, it's a QX series 45nm Penryn Yorkfield quad core.  Back when I had my GeForce 6800 I was idling at around 170w.  You have to consider the significant increase in power consumption as a result of my 9800GX2 with two G92 cores, which is why 230w is considered fine for idle power draw.

How much more power does the 750i consume over the P35?  Does it have a more energy-efficient design for low / idle power states?

I do not consider 230W as "fine" - I can do a QX9650 with an ATI HD3870 below 100W, so *I* consinder the gfx-card and the board as crap... EIST is unimportant to the new CPUs, they do their power-savings on their own.

19  Hardware / Power Supply - PSU / Re: Is a 750w PSU (825w peak) Suitable for "GT200" 9900GTX SLi? on: May 01, 2008, 01:53:10 PM
I currently have a PC Power & Cooling Silencer Quad 750w and a single 9800GX2 in my rig. Over summer, I plan to upgrade to an EVGA 750i FTW and Step-Up my 9800GX2 to a 9900GTX and then buy another one separate. The question being, however, is if the new GT200 architecture will have low enough power consumption that I could run a 9900GTX SLi setup without any issues. Does it seem probable? Also, I was wondering if this efficient PSU would even be able to support two 9800GX2s despite its 825w peak. My rig runs at around 230w idle, so correct me if I'm mistaken. Thanks in advance.

Before the cards are not out, I would not speculate on the power-consumption. The 750i draws more power compared to P35/P45. Due the fact that one card could only draw 225W, two of them are 450W, a 750W PSU should be suffice.

230W idle? WTF? I guess you have an older E-series CPU? You may try to enable EIST Smiley

Dude I've got to admit, you are terrible for being a member of the Fudzilla crew I have to give you that  Huh.  The new cards will be based on GT200 architecture, not the "same shit."  Consider the quantum leap in performance from G71 to G80 between May 2006 and November 2006.  Now consider that happening again between March 2008 and July 2008.  Nuff said.

It will not be that much new compared to G71 and G80, be sure of that. "Same shit, just faster" is only a expression and not meant literally. If you write "quantum leap" - do you know what you are writing? Quantum leap is the smallest  leap possible in the quantum universe... Quantum leap means "quite nothing"... Before you say I'm so terrible, think before you write expressions which are meaning-less but often used by extremly dumb politicians.

would you see much performance in games in moving to ddr3? I mean buying 2 gigs is pretty expensive but doable but i would fear the price of a 4g dual channel ddr3 kit. Plus my desktop is primarily for gaming so i figured i'd just buy a beefy yet not a cutting edge pc.

no, moving from ddr2 to ddr3 does nothing performance wise.
I have checked that out in the ASUS Maxiumus Review here:

The differences are neglectible.

23  Hardware / Processors - CPU / Re: Difference Between Q9450 Part Numbers BX80569Q9450 / BX80569Q9450A ? on: May 01, 2008, 01:34:41 PM
Oh, you'd be quite surprised at what you're calling "crap" in relation to Intel's specified TDP.  A friend of mine has his E8400 running 450 x 9 (4.05GHz) using only 1.3675 volts and running completely stable 24/7.  The new 45nm architecture represents a major shift in power consumption and effectively reduces the 65nm performance-per-watt ratio to an all time low.

The cooler is crap anyways... running a CPU on its specified max. temperature all the time is not a good idea anyways... with 1.3675V he got very lucky... Smiley

Okay just wondering if anyone would know whether or not any game would use more than 4 g ram. I only ask as i've had my eye on GeIL's PC2-6400 800MHz Evo One DDR2  8.0GB kit. I mean more games are getting more ram hungry as the system requirements for assasins creed is 4 gig running on vista, so is for gigs enough or is 8 gis handy or just overkill???/ Plus I've been reading up on some of the hassle's that alot of gamers have been having with 64bit Vista (is it worth the hassle??)

Some games would like to use more RAM, but they are coded in a 32-bit enviroment, so they can't.... Supreme Command is running in 2GB... even it would like to have more Smiley

4GB on Vista is maybe because of DX10, have not yet seen it or have a comparsion between XP and Vista.

I will not change to Vista even when hell is freezing, as long as the system is such a crappy retard bastard.
As some financial analyst said - I'm saying for about 5 years - Windows has to be programmed new in whole...

The hazle you are speaking of is, most games are still distributed with 32-bit only code. So it runs within WOW32, where the same restrictions apply as running under XP. The second downside with 90% of games is the gfx-drivers are infact slower, some are dramatically slower compared to XP.

Also remember, next generation CPUs come with memory-controller built in and they will only support DDR3...

No, it's not some April Fool jokes. VR-Zone has learned that there will be two high end parts from Nvidia to replace the current GeForce 9800GX2 and 9800GTX in Q3.

I agree it's too early to sell it that soon... GX2 needs to be sold and I guess besides some hardcore people it will not easy for nVidia to do so. 9800GTX just released... so I guess mid October is the right time to do it, because that's the time the channel need to be filled for x-mas madness.

but as always...
same shit, just faster.

28  Hardware / Hard Disk Drive / Re: Seagate Announces 1TB Drives on: April 15, 2008, 01:59:37 AM
Meanwhile the Samsung F1 1TB is nearly the price/GB of an 750GB, it's just 1.4ct more expensive...
Of course that adds up to €14 more expensive, but you need less drive to store same amount...
In cases where you can only stick four harddiscs to allow proper airflow, it's 3TB vs 4TB Smiley

And the 1TB has a better price ratio compared to the 640GB drive, which uses only two platters, whereas 750GB and 1TB uses three... for HTPCs 640GB may be the better choice because it should stay cooler.

check original post.  20+ more MB/s throughput after a simple defragmentation!

20MB/s is not that much... Smiley

Have to check if two Samsung F1 1TB in RAID 0 are faster Wink

whatever drive you buy i can gaurentee it'll be quieter than a raptor x. I sometimes think of just using my 1 terra seagate hd instead.

Raptors are just marketing hype... If you want something fast and solid you go for SAS drives with 15k.
If you want much space and fast drive you take Samsung... I believe this harddrive is faster on sequencial read than any Raptor, of course the seek-time is limited.
