  1. WWNSX@ryanshrout Will Nvidia come out with a new Nforce X or 10 Chipset with audio like the old soundstorm? seems like in 2008 they were going to
  2. ITmaster@ryanshrout I have an old ATI GPU lying around, can I add this to my system with a GTX260 and add another monitor (2 already) Thnx
  3. DanielBrewer@ryanshrout I am scared of ATI cards due to their driver issues from years ago - nvidia seems more stable. Why should I switch?
  4. niteowler@ryanshrout The new i7 930 is a disappointment at 45 nm. Why didn't Intel use their new 32 nm process for their top end socket?
