well after checking this site everyday for the past six+ months i finally decided to register due to the chance of winning a cool prize and now i can also contribute to fellow tweak town readers

08-25-2008, 02:11 PM
Hello!! Guess I should try my luck again! I sure enjoyed the pair of 7600 GTs I won from this site a couple of years ago. They are still going strong in a light gaming machine.

08-25-2008, 02:41 PM
Ooh I hope I win, this old 6600GT is not holding up too good... (though it was a pretty good choice back in the day).

This site taught me how to turn off adblocking software on a site-by-site basis, which is a good thing to know when using a fairly heavily 'tweaked' browser.

Good luck folks! :smilies13

08-25-2008, 02:46 PM


Congratz on achieving 10,000 news posts, looking forward to this :Peace!:

08-25-2008, 03:16 PM

Lots more competition with this competition than previous ones, good luck to everybody.

Already running a 9800GTX - would love to compare the Plus model

Never owned a Gigabyte board - could be a first time for everything

Love Kingston memory - new kit would be nice

Cheers TT, top effort, as usual.

In with a grin for the win

Hello, TweakTown

This yo boy Local Taliban. I like to creep around the site once in awhile, and check out the news posts on all the overly expensive technology the computer world has to offer. Then I go to my room and cry about not having any nice parts like the ones I just referred to.

Congrats On 10k, Have a good one!!!

08-26-2008, 08:54 AM
Congradulations to Tweaktown Team on its 10,000th post. Love this website on computer news. !!!!!:facelick:

MSI – A bard’s tale

I have a story to tell of near and far of champions, victory, and honor. A group of champions who have went to defend their honor and fought well. Here is a story of a video card that accepted the gauntlet of challenge thrown at it like many others to prove their worth. They all gathered in the arena for the battle to start; it was long and grueling - they had much to prove of performance, power, and value. Giving much more that is what the public wishes for. Other Champions taunted and jeered “you will not win this feat tonight!” They threw benchmarks at it and frame rates galore, will it play crysis on max, does the fan get loud or the card get hot when we fight, they cried! We need more! Drivers were tested and beta`s too. Some Lifted champions to success and bringing down a champion with it when it failed. As the battle wore on AA, AF Refresh rates aplenty -The finals wore down quickly as cards fell one by one along the wayside until there was only a few that withstood this Olympic hurdle of Honor, Victory and worth.
The final three stood at the top with the laurels’ and medals of glory. MSI won all three! Brought these Olympians to the people you see. The gods smiled down from MT. Olympus and heaped honor and glory on the land; for every person had an MSI N9800GTX PLUS-T2D512-OC Graphics Card
Video card in hand.

08-30-2008, 03:25 AM

I got my RAM yesterday, working great currently, just need to push my FSB a bit more (when summer is over.... damn hot weather) so I can get it upto some nice speeds. Currently running at DDR2-876. I'll upload some photos later today.

I did have some pictures of the RAM installed, but they're very blurry, when I pull out my computer, I'll try to get some better shots.

Wow, was it brand new, because I thought TweakTown would send out products that they used to do reviews.

10-22-2008, 05:44 AM
Hey crenn which country do you live in? (I just want to know when my package will arrive in Canada)

10-23-2008, 01:51 PM
All brand new :)

10-23-2008, 04:50 PM
I live in Australia. And I can confirm my RAM was brand new, it had its quality seal untouched.


10-25-2008, 01:26 AM
Wow, that must have cost you a lot (if you didn't get it from manufacturer)

10-27-2008, 12:01 PM
The prizes were kindly provided by MSI, GIGABYTE and Kingston :)

Sweet, I just got mine today (seems like the post office opened to check it, because the video card is out of it's antistatic bag, and the box can be opened without cutting.)

Now, I don't know what to do. I have a sapphire 4850, with accelero s1 v2, so it's basically silent. But, I think I want this card if it's as quite for the customer support, cuda drivers, and the phys x support. I want to sell one of these cards to get a quiter PSU, speakers, and other minor stuff.. so hard.

You know you want the GPU, NVidia demands it!

10-30-2008, 08:22 PM
I do, but I also want a silent-er PSU.
