  • Gigabyte GA-X48-DQ6 Update WOW!!!

    Hi Everyone,
    Just an update on these new boards that I think everyone will find interesting, I have one of these boards running with a Quad Core 9650 Extreme at the following settings, CPU FSB 400mhz cpu is now 3.4GZ, 8gig of corsair dominator Twin2x4096-8500C5DF @ 1066, 533mhz, This is all running stable, These new Gigabyte boards are very very good I would highly recommend these boards to people who want serious speed from high end systems.

    Cheers

      Go Ultimate

      Hi Bill,
      Go ultimate mate in 64bit, it is not much dearer in price and has a few extra features that you get with it, like DVD maker which comes in handy, and Dream Scene ect ect, I would highly recommend Ultimate, I have had Home premium and buisness in the past and now I just stick with ultimate because it has everything in it, Plus as I said earlier it is not much more in price,

      Cheers

        Thanks. I am shopping for Ultimate. Know where I can find the best deal? I can get the upgrade version or OEM. Let me know who's got it cheapest.

          If you are building a system from scratch, get the OEM version instead of the update so you can install it on a bare drive.

            Oem

            Hi Bill,
            Get the OEM Version, NOT the upgrade... Don't know where you will get it cheap in the U.S as I
            am in Australia, but the OEM versions are not dear, try Ebay maybe?

            Cheers

              In the US you can get the Vista Ultimate 64-bit OEM version from NewEgg for under US$ 170:

              http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16832116215

              The SP1 version is available for under US$ 190 and is probably worth the extra money so you don't have to patch the darned thing immediately:

              http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...Tpk=32-116-493

              NewEgg has good prices, low or free shipping, is legitimate, and they have excellent customer service if there is a problem.

                I am sure you guys can go some searching but it is well doumented that you can install an update version of Vista even on a bare drive. It is also well docu,emted that this is probably a deliberate act on the part of MS.

                  Whether that is in compliance with the EULA is questionable at best. It is just one step removed from outright piracy.

                    EULA requires that you own a qualified prior OS. Otherwise it's like buying a car with a trade-in discount but not trading anything in.

                    Assuming you have the appropriate qualified prior OS license to have a validly-licensed Vista upgrade, not having to install the prior OS and upgrade from it is convenient.

                      No problems, Still going strong!

                      Just a update on the system, Have had it under load for 48hrs now with out any problems, i.e Memtest, sandrasoft, everest, ect ect. No problems, these MB'S are bullet proof and very quick, I highly recommend these with the new intel X48 chipset, OH one thing is if anyone considers buying these boards from gigabyte update your Sata Raid driver ASAP. I run two Plextor 760SA DVD Drives + (Sony BR IDE drive) the Plextors are sata and they made the mouse pointer jittery when opening Computer in Vista 64 bit, this is because they run of the sata controllers, once updated to latest from intel there was no problem. And remember if running 64bit you should enable this in the bios on these boards, options 32bit or 64bit systems..

                      Cheers

                        I don't know if this is the case with the GA-X48-DQ6 as well, but on the last few systems I built based on Gigabyte motherboards, there are advanced settings in the BIOS that are only available if you press Ctrl-F1 at the main menu of the BIOS.

                          Can I just step back a moment and ask "why" get Ultimate for an "editing" machine? Unless that free DVD maker program is worth while (not likely) I don't see any reason to go Ultimate other than feeling like you "ultimately" have the most feature packed version.

                          I'd like a list of the processes that run in the background in the ultimate version that do not in the Business version and how much RAM it consumes.

                            Why Not

                            Hi,
                            Why not go Ultimate for the extra couple of dollars, It's like people running dual Xeon CPU'S which are designed for server's NOT home use or editing.
                            People follow other people like sheep when it comes to computers and the funny thing is that they have no idea at all...
                            Like I said about the dual Xeon's, ever looked up a comparsion compared to Quad 9650 or the 9770 quad.

                            cheers

                              Guys, I'd prefer this discussion be relative to EDIUS performance with this motherboard configuration.

                              You can argue the virtues (or lack thereof) with operating systems privately.
