    *Sorry for double post!*

    Just a quick last minute check... are these compatible? How do I find out?
    Mobo and GPU.

    Please tell me soon (directed at anyone who knows about this sort of stuff).

    Thanks Satharis, helped a lot.

    Do I need to got to lower ram? Or would it still be useful?

    I can spend a maximum of $250 CAD for the Motherboard and CPU together.
    I am aware that Micro Atx is just the form factor, but if you look at the pictures of the board I linked in op you'll notice that there is a smaller port between the PCI slots and the Graphics card slot, which would theoretically give me room for my graphics card (which is double sized) and 2 PCI cards.

    Thanks if you can help.

    Should I be proud of my case? Alright, I will.
    Motherboard is basically set in stone, needs to be micro ATX with that same positioning of the PCI slots and such (if a similar one can be found then that would work too I suppose).
    Now to the old phenom vs athlon arguement, ahem, I wish to find the more energy efficient yet real world performance improving cpu. The mobo I chose has max cpu wattage of ~90W, and supports athlon II and phenom II, what would be better in the citeria I chose?


    ----

    Post interruption! Bulldozer is coming... Oh, i suppose I'll wait for a new line of stuff to come out, or I'll just go with one of the current ones and disregard the new stuff??? Helpful hits from past experiences please?

    1. I've added that to cart.
    2. I don't know what brand the psu is, but it's been working well for over 3 years, I'll update you with the brand if necessary.
    3. I was planning on doing some music production and video editing, I could probably go down to 4-6GB...
    4. Case is This but with blue and plastic windows in it.

    Thanks for responding so quickly.

    Hey, I'd like some help from anyone who knows what's what with computers.
    I'm upgrading my computer with a new Motherboard, CPU, RAM, HDD [and PSU if needed].

    What I have at the moment in my computer (from memory and DxDiag):
    XFX Radeon 5770 1GB GPU
    Intel Core 2 Duo CPU E6550 @ 2.33GHz (2 CPUs), ~2.3GHz
    2GB Ram
    450W PSU
    500GB HDD
    AsRock ConRoe1333 Micro Atx Motherboard
    There's probably other stuff, but it is most likely irrelevant for the moment.

    What I want to get (I want to know if it will all play nice)
    *update SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s $74.99
    ECS a750GM-M Micro Atx mobo $54.99
    Mushkin Enhanced Silverline 8GB (2 x 4GB) $82.49
    CPU depends on what is suggested, I'm thinking something by AMD, but I don't know the benefits from 2.9 - 3.2 GHZ, so I would like some help.

    End Question: From what I've seen, most of the CPUs I looked at (AMD, low wattage, compatible with my selected MOBO) don't state that they have support for 1.5V ram, would 1.4V compatible CPUs still support for 1.5V?

    Thanks in Advance to anyone who helps me create a great upgrade for my pc.

    New pack progress:
    ■I've done some experimenting with a timer-ish block breaking animation, it didn't work so well.
    ■No other progress so far.

    The theme was futuristic, but if you gave a better explanation I could probably fix whatever you are referring to.

    Hey, I made a texture pack for the webhallen contest, it was like, a one week project.
    Can I get some advice on making something better? I plan on doing something completely different, as I am no longer happy with what I made.
    Click the images for bigger versions.


    Furnace is nice looking IMO.


    SlowMud, Netherrock, and Lightstone... sand too I guess.


    My pumpkins are intense?


    Saplings have flags, I don't know why.


    The chicken is slightly edited, and it drops metallic feathers! And the bow is a gun that shoots stakes.


    Ladders were meant to be holographic-like, but that didn't work.


    This is the moon... nothing else noteworthy here.


    Paintings are all from my Deviant Art, most don't look so great in tiny form.

    Download it here

    Please do recommend how I can make it better.

    These tips are really great! I wish I had known about this thread during the webhallen contest, I might have actually made a good texture pack.

    /lameness

    Edit: Great art tips, I will make a new texture with these tips under my metaphorical belt (or I'll just improve my original pack).

    The mental convo is one of the best written pieces of literature I have ever read.
    The idea does seem like something that would be cool to have, but sadly, I cannot help, for I do not know how to code.

    posted a message on Bad things you did in school
    In the 3rd grade I went to principal's office 12 or so times.
    There were many different reasons, here's what I remember:
    *Called my friend a **** because he dumped my small live fish out of a cup on a field trip.
    *Generally insulted people.
    *Made my friend say 'thuck,' and he pronounced the 'th' as 'f.'

    Other bad stuff too,
    *In Gr6, I put a bit of glue on a guys chair. A bunch of other guys put glue on his chair. He came back from the bathroom and sat down. We were trying to hold in our laughter, but just failed to do so. He flipped **** and tried to attack my friend with the chair, but the teacher caught him (physically) and we went to the office. One of my friends who wasn't 'sent' to the office came anyway and admitted to helping, so no one got in trouble.
    *In Gr4, I made fun of a kid (just saying he was so dumb he tried to drown a fish/ suffocate a worm in dirt/ kill a bird by throwing it off a cliff. I didn't get in trouble because the principal was nice that day. I had to apologize though.
    *I insult people jokingly, I'm trying to stop.

    @Above, effing fantastic.
