  1. Thank for the link, you're right it is faster.
  2. Forgot to mention that The store called me last night and said that after they put it all back together they ran it all day to see if it would hold up on a longer test, and it did not. It started acting up after about 6/7 hours. I Made a big mistake with this board it seems. I also made a big mistake in that after I had it running for a little over a week with no problems I threw away all the product boxes and tags. I can't RMA the board since their policy states you must return it in the original box with all the stuff (parts/paperwork) that came with it. Expensive mistake. So I don't also have to buy new memory I asked them to see if they can get me an X48 board that can do 1600 on the FSB and using DDR2. If not then I'll use another P45 but a different brand. Also We don't have Marshall or TJ in Hawaii yet.
  3. Strangley enough my question is about the ball. I too have a bad back from a vehicle accident, hows does that work out for you? PS: that is 3 times more space than I have for my computer.
  4. You have quite the setup there, . I wish I had that much floor space. My whole condo is only 596sf and its jammed with the stuff of two peoples lives.
  5. I feel so embarassed, They called this morning and said nothing is wrong with it, This could drive me to drinking again, or banging my head against the wall. I think the computer hates me. Seriously, I checked all the connections and the mounts, I got no clue what I did wrong but they pulled it out of the case and ran it for 3 hours on the bench, so even though I could not find anything it had to be touching (grounding out??) something. If I am able to I'll pick it up after work today. Times like this I wish I had a bigger house so I could have a proper computer work area, The wife gets ###### when I have it spread out over the dining table trying to work on it.
  6. I only used the readouts in the BIOS to check the voltages and I set the board to 1600fsb which OCed it to 3.40ghZ Edit: Just dropped it off at the store, they have better equipment than I do. Hopefully it won't be too many bad parts.
  7. Well the Board Diagnostics seems to lean towards the CPU being Bad or not set correctly. It was set since it was working I guess it's a long shot that it came loose but my bets on it went bad for some reason. I think its time to take it to the Computer store where they have better testing equipment.
  8. OH no, seems I spoke to soon. The computer did the reboot thing again came up as far as the setup flash and then went blank. Since everything else still "Seemed to be on" I am guessing the video card died. I am going to go pick up a cheap one and see if that works, if not the local store says they can run a diagnoses for me for $40 and tell me exactly what went bad. I probably should just do that than waste the money on a test card but since I don't hace a PCI-E spare laying about I want to pick one up anyway. Wish me luck.
  9. Today the temps are slightly lower playing HALO and GR:AW/2, the highest it hit was 43c. Of all my games two so far are giving me problems with the Vista 64. GR:AW and Frontlines fuel of War, Frontlines won't play at all and GR:AW plays for about 10 to 15 minutes and forces a reboot. Its the only game that does that. GR:AW2 has no issues and the temp when it forces the reboot is no higher than any other time. Very strange, if it did that all the time I would suspect a hardware problem but since it only happens with GR:AW I believe it is software compatability issue.
  10. http://www.computerdesk.com/Power-Center-C...k-p/st19657.htm http://www.computerdesk.com/Corner-Computer-Desk-s/5.htm I wish I had the space for a larger desk, I got all my stuff crammed on to a 31 inch desk and its still slightly too big for the space.
  11. Yes thats it, right now as I type the computer has been on 10 minutes and the temps at 36c, in about an hour it will hit 44c and hold there till I put some stress on it.
  12. Just finished building my newest computer. Based on a Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550 Yorkfield 2.83GHz LGA 775 95W Quad-Core Processor on a MSI P45 Platinum (HC Edition) LGA 775 Intel P45 ATX Intel Motherboard w/ Tt V1 Cooler. It's running Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium SP1 64-bit and has 2ea G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066, a Western Digital Caviar SE16 WD7500AAKS 750GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive, SAPPHIRE 100243L Radeon HD 4870 512MB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card, 2ea SAMSUNG 20X DVD Burner Black SATA drives, and a Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi XtremeGamer 7.1. Powering this is a PC Power & Cooling PPCS750QBL Silencer 750W, and its all housed in a NZXT LEXA BlackLine Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case. I originally bought a Tuniq Tower 120 Universal CPU Cooler to put on it but it was to bulky and heavy. While it may have done a better job at cooling the V1 is keeping me at 40-45c between idle and load. (OC'ed to 3.4GHz) I have been loading up a lot of my old games and replaying them including all the GR games. I wish I had this when I first played these games. everything runs so smooth, no glitches or stalls. I guess when Warhead comes out I'll get to see if it is up to speed for the current stuff..
  13. I can't remember the exact details but didn't Boeing submit a bid based on the contract requirements and the Other company decided to up the Anti and built a larger better aircraft beyond what the contract called for? Then the AF decided they like the bigger is better idea?
  14. Thank you to everyone recommending their favorite mods. I have been working on the list and due to sign up req, I don't have Deamon Rage, Iron Shield, Hidden War, HX5, Patch2 for CentCom, and No Easy Day. GWDS, I've added your list and will work on getting those as well. With all the stuff I have now I should be able to play for a while without getting bored. Thanks All.
  15. I downloaded a bunch of these today, but Was not able to get some of them due to sign up requirements. I refuse to give out my info to get a file.
  16. Thanks Dannik, I'll try those. I was looking at WoI but was not sure and to be honest I didn't give YotM much thought cause of the name. This is why I need to depend on you more experienced players for advice.
  17. As the title says, I am looking for Good Mods like Frostbite that have their own campaign/missions. I figure some of you have played just about all the mods and know which ones are the the kind I am looking for. The only other thing I have is; Is anyone remaking the GR:AW 1/2 maps and missions for GR. A lot of people cryed out for GR1 stuff to be made for GR:AW but I think GR is the better game and maybe the GR:AW stuff should be made for it instead.
  18. trust me look in the folder and start the exe file that in there. A small screen comes up asking how many of each AI you want up to 6 per platoon. The game can only be started via this exe to get the extra AI, if you try to start the game normally it won't work.
  19. look in the mod folder for that mod and there is an exe file that starts the mod.
  20. figured it out, nice but of no use for getting through the regular campaign. That one mission (Stonebell) always kicks my butt because you get attacked on several different fronts and you can't control all 3 platoons at once.
  21. I found this using search, wonderful tool. Only drawback was I had to restart the campaign. Edit the campaign.xml file <ExtraStatPoints>5</ExtraStatPoints>
  22. Is there a mod for upping the experience points on the AI?
  23. I downloaded and activated the Single Player Platoon Extender Mod and when I am in game adding AI to the squads I still only have 6 available. What am I doing wrong? I have GR/DS/IT installed along with Sniper Armory and WoW 3.1. I made SPPE the highest Priority to the lowest and no matter where its listed nothing happens. Normally I play just a single sniper with the rest in reserve in case I need them, but I'm playing StoneBell on elite nad the 5 AI that I have might as well be 5 unarmed boy scouts as the enemy easily dispatches them no matter where I place them. I wanted to try this mission with a few extra AI and see if they are able to hold out longer.
  24. So has PgP been cracked using the 1024 bit and higher codes?
