    i5-2500K crashes on ordinary use

    For years, my system was stable but in the last month it crashes under specific cases.

    I have an i-5 2500K overclocked to 105x 4 (4.2Ghz). O/C never had a problem until now.

    Re: New Build: Current SB or Wait for Ivy?

    The i5-2500k was on the 'special' over up in the north of the border at $189 so i decided not to wait for IB. I hope to get a 4ghz oc but all i use is adobe flash/surfing and photoshop 1/month!

  5. Re: Time to update HW! Recommendations for High/Mid/Low

    I like the HW leaderboard line-up. All intel! The i3-2100 suits me, but I would prefer not to go with ASRock. What is another m/b selection that incorporates USB 3.0 and has the new bios (UEFI)?

    Do you think you should consider the amd ii x4 for $25 more? It's quad core instead of dual core

    Try Dell's XPS models. The higher-end GPU may push you past your budget.

    Your best bet is to do a search for your equipment on the ubuntu forums. alternatively you can run wubi in windows and then install ubuntu. If you don't like it you can easily get rid of ubuntu.

    Re: Offsite Online Backup Solutions

    With 350MB you just need either
    1. DVD Burner and a bunch of re-writeable DVD's
    2. USB Flash drive. 8GB drive is just $20.

    Once you start to need more backup space, get an external HDD.
