Large sample variance, what a pain. :roll: Is a noisy Samsung sample still more quiet than, say, a Hitachi? I want a drive that is about 250G, and I plan to put it in an Antec P180 case. If I am not confident that buying a Samsung will buy quiet, then I will go for performance. Please advise... Than...

So, even if I don't FU the processor, it costs me at least 15% to replace a defective one... No. The page you linked to is about the Money Back Guarantee/Refund policy . That means what happens if you send something back that works, but you just don't like. If a product is defective, then it gets r...

Yikes! It gets more depressing. Per the Newegg site on May 22, 2006: * 7-day replacement or refund guarantee on all CPUs, including Open Box processors. * Note: For CPU, base cost will reflect current market price, and 15% restocking fee will apply after this adjustment. This amount will be subtract...

Shadowknight, thanks so much for this post/thread/FAQ! I am a silent PC newbie who would like to build my own. I have spent many hours reading on this site, and was getting overwhelmed by all the information. Your post is helping me to "bring it all together." Maybe there is hope for me after all......

Have you found the answer to your question? I may buy this board so I can contiue to use my AGP video card. What tips can you give me about your ASRock 939Dual-SATA2? (Aside from what's in your "AMD Dual core 4200 and Asrock 939 dualsataII temps" thread)

Thanks,

You can certainly upgrade the motherboard later. However, since you're going for 939 anyway, you may be interested in the ASRock 939Dual-SATA2.
Whoa. I never knew such a critter existed! :o Maybe I can have my cake and eat it, too! :D

Thanks for the great discussion! If I stick with the Matrox/CRT combo, that means I buy a mobo with AGP for the new system. What are the odds that I’ll be sorry later without PCIe? I'm not interested in games - really! Is it feasible to move a CPU to a new mobo with PCIe later? I'm leaning toward th...

Get a nice inexpensive (<$150) dual DVI 6600GT/7600GS/X1600.
Do they give text as crisp as Matrox?

Thanks,

Keep or ditch my Matrox P750?

I want to build a new, fast and quiet PC for surfing, office apps, and Photoshop Elements. I have a Matrox Millenium P750 triple-monitor video card, and I can’t decide whether or not to use it in a new system. I love it for driving my two 19in. CRTs, but it has a noisy fan and it is an AGP card. AGP...
