    Stanford Down...

    I had that same error. It happened to me because I updated my drivers. I think it could of been avoided if I had paused it before the update. Not sure. Just realized I responded to a ancient post.....

    This card is a monster. If I wasn't gaming so much I think I could do about 350k ppd.

    Problems with a gaming pc

    Is it the standalone or the MOD? The SA is alpha and does not play well on most systems as it has not been optimized. I heard massive systems struggle at 20 fps in cities. They have many tweaks online that you can go to. The best boost is dropping the viewable distance. You dont need to see as far as that game allows. Most of the settings are in a cfg file in the game directory. http://dayzintel.com/dayz-guides/dayz-standalone-performance-guide
  4. I'm getting a failed upload too for the last three days on
  5. Isn't that illegal? Why can they load malware on our pcs but others get arrested? Could we at least sue for damages?

    Turn Off Dual Channel

    OK well now I'm just confused. I thought dual channel worked very much like raid where it pulled data off both at the same time doubling the speed. But because of this it used 8 gigs of memory as 4 gigs. The last mobo I had increased my speed with dual channel but cut my memory in half unless something has changed? I have two four gig chips of g-skill. gigabyte 890fxa-ud5. CPUz reads both the memory chips just fine.

    Turn Off Dual Channel

    I understand dual channel is faster but it cuts the amount of memory I have in half. If 4 gigs is enough to run all games then I wouldn't mind. I tried multiple different slots with the memory but it always uses dual channel. I guess I'm out of luck this board does not seem to support it. Ill just have to buy some more memory.

    Turn Off Dual Channel

    Well I only have 4 gigs in dual channel mode. I want 8. Memory being faster don't help if the game needs more =/

    Turn Off Dual Channel

    I have a gigabyte 89ofxa-ud5 motherboard and I bought two sticks of 4gig memory. On this motherboard I can't turn off dual channel. I can't find it in the bios. I tried changing the memory slots but that didn't help. Anyone know how to turn it off? Will games even use more then 4gigs?

    Asus Board Unlocks CPU Cores

    Yea thats what I just recently got for my g/f. I bought a dual core but only could unlock one extra core. Still haven't tried to OC this cpu yet. But the cpu at stock speeds is stable as a rock.

    Avatar - the pc version of the game

    I recently got Guitar Hero 5 and I can barely play on medium. I too was wondering if I was simply getting too old as well...lol

    FCC plan to create free broadband in US

    How would the filter even work? People would just change words. like pr0n..lol ...Plus they dont have the technology to filter images very well. Although they are very close thanks to Google. Even when they can they would need some hella servers to scan all of them that go threw. "In a filing with the FCC, T-Mobile said that its own testing has shown that allocating the AWS-3 spectrum as Martin proposed would interfere with its own licenses in the neighboring AWS-1 band. The carrier recommended that AWS-3 licenses be limited to downlink transmissions, which would create a one-way network where users could download, but not upload, data." Isn't this what people have been saying all along? A ONE WAY internet. I love how they lie to get their way.

    Game Piracy

    Because of piracy I am seeing fewer and fewer high quality games for PC. Things like steam are a great idea. Most games I don't need a code. Don't need to add a nocd. Also I don't ever have to worry about losing the CD. It fixes all things I have hated about games. It does indeed have its flaws but its still WAY better then the latter. I think programs like steam will help piracy a lot. Loading some chip onto a motherboard won't change much. How many times have you heard they were going to stop piracy and it takes the hackers just a few days to get threw?

    Linux will be installed on every Asus motherboard

    Although I do think this is kind of cool but isn't it a bit dangerous? I liked the fact the Bios were small because then you have less of a chance of something going wrong. That is the base of everything and if something goes wrong with that there isn't much you can do except send the bios chip back. Also being able to access the internet with bios seems dangerous as hell too. People could target it and cripple your PC. If you OS goes out you can just reformat. If your bios gets takin out that is a much bigger problem.
