    Blast from the past...

    I was checking my years-old Hotmail account tonight when I got an email from this site wishing me a happy birthday, even though I hadn't posted or visited here in about four years. I decided to drop...
  2. Re: HELP!! Is Ivy Bridge worth upgrading from 1st Gen Core i5?!?!

    A Lynnfield is still plenty fast enough to drive any video card you'd want to throw at it. You can keep running that CPU all the way to Haswell, if that's what you're hoping to do. Do the SSD first,...
  3. Re: Anyone still have their old AMD XP's around? What have you done with yours?

    I have a Compaq Presario laptop from the same vintage; came with a K6-2 366 processor on an OPTi chipset and some video accelerator I'd never heard of. But everything on it still works great. I...

    I finally tried MediaMonkey over the weekend. I am now officially free of having to use iTunes. :cool:

    Yeah, and I wish like he** that they would quit doing that, because every time I switch to a new version of Windows, the first thing I have to do is find out how to disable all of the Mac wannabe...

    Re: LOL Apple Pricing...

    You're just paying for the Apple name. There are enough sheep out there to pay it, and to buy any new iToys they offer for sale.

    Re: Win7 Performance index fail...?

    I don't think the WPI is anything other than a scam Microsoft runs for the hardware industry to try to sell more hardware. Since most people never upgrade CPU's, just about anything "passes" that...

    Re: To SSD or to not SSD? That is the question.

    If you're not satisfied with your current disk performance, the SSD is probably your best bet with the prices coming down all the time. I have a couple of recent 500GB drives and I recently added a...

    Poll: Re: What do you think about refurbished products?

    If I know the seller will stand by the product if something goes wrong, then I don't mind at all. Newegg, Tiger Direct and 3BTech have all gotten a lot of refurb purchases from me over the years and...

    Re: Puppy Problems

    Puppy can be installed on a hard disk, although the people who make it don't recommend it. It runs just as well from the CD, with just the essential files copied to the disk. When set up in that...

    Re: AMD Reports Record First Quarter Revenue

    I doubt they could produce something like that and sell it at a profit at $3000, let alone $300. It would be an enormous die, and with eight cores and all of that cache, there would be a lot of...

    Re: Brand name= level of quality?

    The K7S5A was the last time I used anything from ECS, but back in the day I loved it. I credit its success much more to the quality of that SiS chipset than I do anything ECS did, though. For a very...

    Re: Going back to XP from Vista?

    I can understand not wanting to buy a new OS for that laptop, but if you do try Win 7 at some point, I think you'll like it a lot better than Vista. I finally made the upgrade last week from XP...

    Re: Questions for SSD and HDD users

    Correct. Leaving the HDD running actually results in less wear and tear on the drive than having it go through constant starting and stopping.

    Re: Why choose Celeron 900 over Atom 330?

    Because the Atom architecture is inferior. It can't do OOO execution, which puts it in the same category with the original Pentium. Think of the Atom as a Pentium MMX with all the versions of SSE and...
  16. Re: My take on iPAD by Apple and lack of multitasking

    They'd buy an abacus if it had an Apple logo on it. All Jobs would have to do is market the abacus as a battery-free hand-held computing device.
  17. Re: My take on iPAD by Apple and lack of multitasking

    A "tablet PC" that runs a stripped-down OS and can't even multitask. Apple's turned back the clock 13 years, and the only difference is that they've added color and replaced the dial-up Internet with...

    Re: Lian Li PC75 stands the test of time

    Nothing wrong with recycling an old case that you like. I've been on the same Antec SX1040B case for about seven years, and have no plans to replace it. It's been through the Athlon Thunderbird, a...

    Re: Windows 7 Vs WIndows XP on my system

    You say you're a gamer. Do you play anything that need DX10 or 11?

    If the answer is yes, then use some version of Windows 7. If you don't need anything higher than DX9, then Windows XP is still...

    Try the advice you've been given. A lot of times, it's a poor connection or bad calibration that causes this. But you may also have a genuine problem with LCDs. There are some LCDs on the market that...

    Re: which would be better and more performance.?

    Just do a clean install from a regular XP installation CD, without all of that OEM crap, and you'll be fine. An XP 2400+ should have no trouble whatsoever running Windows XP. Crappy netbooks with...

    Re: Intel Pentium 4 3.60 GHz in Socket 478...?

    My guess is that someone with way too much time of their hands sanded off the original markings on the processor, and remarked it as something that never existed.

    Re: Can the processor handle an hdd upgrade?

    They were either trying to rip you off, or they were totally ignorant about computers. I was running a 320 GB drive (and a 200 GB) off a system with an E4300 myself until recently, when I switched to...
  24. Re: cheap C2D upgrade worth it coming from p4 prescot?

    What he said.

    If you did this upgrade, your computer would be much faster, but unless you were doing something very CPU-intensive, you wouldn't notice much.

    For $250, you can put together a...

    AMD can beat Intel by coming out with a CPU architecture that is superior to Intel's, which they did when they came out with the original Athlon and Athlon 64 processors. Right now, their...
