thx for your help, ill keep testing for a while and see what happens.
Posted March 27, 2008
that makes some sense. but why does it not show it when i leave my monitor on. i just tested that just now. I left my monitor on and left for a while and when i came back it showed nothing. It probably only does it when the screen is off, than the CPU says he's not here so we better do system idle like you said.
heres a shot of my task manager processes.
i wouldn't think that it should be using almost 100% of my cpu
heres some things that are taking the most
only one i know is the setpoint.exe and that is for my mouse and keyboard, other wise i have no idea what anyof then stand for
windows xp pro
ok, heres whats happening. when i leave the room ill turn of my moniter off, and when i come back and check my task manager it is showing that my cpu has been running
What could my cpu be doing?
On the left is when my moniter is off and im not doing anything, and the right is when i come back. you guys know how it works.

o well you can make a motherboard that can do it

I found it really cool how they stuck 2 8800's together to make one card. and when you crossfire 2 of them its like runnings 4 gpu's at once. heres an idea for a gpu just stick 5 nvidia 8800's togother and crossfire 2 of them so you have 10 chipsets and just stick a big ass fan onto it to keep it cool. there no telling what they will think of next.
i came across this video and thought it was pretty cool. it makes my new radeon hd 3850 card look like crap.
i wonder how much this is gonna cost.

whats this computer going to be used for? If its primarily gaming, i would upgrade your video card to an ati radeon hd 3800's or nvidia 8600's

yes. I found them once but i couldn't find it again
well, i shouldn't need the files. i just can't find them. unless im looking in the wrong place. becuase when i go to add structural membere there nothing to choose from. and i cannot find where to add different member. This is really tough to explain.
i dont know how many of you guys use this program, but i could use some help. Im trying to put structural members into a strip mall that im designing for my design projects class. I cannot find any of the beams or other members. I thought they where in the styles manager but there not. I know that there somewhere because i had it before.
where can i find the beams and joists?
I'm useing AutoCAD architecture 08.

thx for the help
P.S. this is my 100th post
thx for the link, it works great. what temperature is to high? right now my card is at 107 degrees F. and im not doing to much, but i was playing alot earlier.
I just got my video card today. I installed easily and runs Doom 3 on ultra high setting very well. but how do i know if the card is getting to hot or im pushing it to hard. the catalyst control center doesn't give any of that information. is there another program that monitors that stuff?
I got the ati radeon hd 3850 512mb

maybe this one, get the best bang for my buck
I know people are going to get confused with that 3870 X2 with one GB Vram which is really 512MB + 512MB crossfired and the 3870 X2 512MB which sounds like 256MB for each GPU and since each 256MB is holding identical data it will run out of video memory just as fast as a 8600gt 256MB
thats a tough one to comperhend, so what your saying is that only way to get the full 1 GB of Vram is by having 2 cards at 512 MB?
my price range seems to keep going up. i started off at around $100, but i think ill be willing to go little more $200. I dont think its nessecary to go that high.
One thing i dont like is that there are so many cards that are the same thing but there all different. why cant ATI and Nvidia just make there own cards?
Posted February 19, 2008
i want to check out both side of the card war before i make a decision.
now ive been reading a lot on both the nvidia 8600's and the ati radeon hd 3800's. most of them are saying that the 3800's are better then the 8600's
get the new g92 8800gts 512mb
its way to far outside my price range

I know some of those cards were suggested before, I just wanted to get more feedback on them. I dont think the 8600gt 256MB will be fast enough for what i want. I want to be able to play games like Doom 3 with good quality, im willing to pay more for a better card. thats why i think the radeon hd 3850 512MB may be a better card.
heres a couple more there both Radeon HD 3850 512MB
this one is only $155 after rebate, but some of the review are questionable
this one is $190, and has some good reviews. i'd rather pay a little more to make sure its better.
what are you views on these and my other choices above.
heres what i think. if you have any other suggestion just let me know
its only 256MB but its surprisingly powerfull according to this http://www23.tomshardware.com/graphics_2007.html?modelx=33&model1=854&model2=1061&chart=286
the powercolor one. its good but the only problem i see with it is that it is only directX 9, Would it work with direct X10? if i choose to go to vista in the future.

can we atleast narrow down the cards that should work.
THX for the help guys. I got a lot to think about.
keep posting anything helps
