Microsoft Security is a excellent program. I've been using it since I found out about it, a few months back. Nothing but good things to say about it.

CoreTemp. Another awesome program. Protip: if you use Windows Gadgets, the AllCPUMeter can show the temp, but only if CoreTemp is on and running. Sometimes it would bug out on my laptop, usually it had to do with my laptop being put in hibernate mode and coming out it. This changes any clock settings done to the CPU (like if it was OC'd via FSB, going to sleep and coming back out makes it default to stock speed).

Personally, for anti-virus/malware/spyware, I use Avast.

Why pay for a sub? Their paid version doesn't offer anything that can't be had for free.

ESET NOD32 is my anti virus. I also have CCleaner, 360 Amigo System Speedup, and Auslogics disk defrag. Keeps my computer running pretty nice.

nothing, back when we were rocking win 95 and 98. nowadays it's used but not nearly as often. i don't think i've ever performed the check and had it come back and say it needed to be ran.

Hey guys I have a few questions about running dual gpu's with crossfirex or SLI. Below are my pc specs just so you know what I'm working with:
Motherboard: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6813131641

Graphics: EVGA GeForce GTX 295

CPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6819115211

Power Supply: 750w

Now I built the PC myself and I know some things about computers but I don't understand how to run dual-gpu's at the same time. Now my one friend said I can have the GTX 295 run the "main graphics" and if/when I buy another one, that gpu can run the "physics" of games. I don't even know if that's possible or not or if these things are even "real".

I know this may sound silly and all, but I really need some input. If you understand what I'm trying to say/do, then can you please let me know if my power supply would be able to run dual-graphics and if I can even have one card run one thing and the other run other things.

The GTX 295 is a dual card, its already running SLI(internally), so adding a second card means that you run quad SLI, support and scaling might not be the best, it will most likely give you poor performance to cost ratio.
(and it would probably be hard to find a gtx 295, its a bit dated)

As for running a second GTX 295 as a dedicated physx card, thats a total wast of money, the handful of games that really uses physx will run about as good on a single 295.
(Using Pysx and supporting Pysx isn't really the same ;) )
