Yeah it will record high resolution video, but then you have to compress it for YouTube, etc.

Ya, most people only use it to validate an overclock though. I've got my Phenom II 1055T 2.8GHz 6-Core overclocked to 3.5GHz on all cores.

I am selling my system though to build something smaller and more energy efficient.

hey bud, was just wondering what you thought about me getting additional USB for my pc? it only has 4 at the back and I have a USB hub but its not particularly reliable as I've had it a while and it somethings goes wrong. can I get a new internal usb card that expands my usb and gives me an extra 4 ports at the back? its stuff like my webcam and bluetooth adapter that I am keen to just hide round the back, then I can use the front two for memory sticks etc

what kind of port would a USB card go into? or is it best to just use a hub? cheers bud

something like this maybe?

Yeah that should work, you got some free PCI slots right?

I guess? Though only had the one PCI-e slot, does it matter much about quality? does a card like this need power of its own? thanks

Well if you only have a PCI-e slot you need a PCI-e card. The PCI bus powers the card. Judging by how many sold it should be fine.

Yeah but check anyway sometimes the graphics card overlaps the PCI slot.

I think it probably does block the first but I have 2 or 3 free below the card so should be able to use one ok
