  4. Old school CRT monitor guy considering switch to new LCD widescreen

    Hi everyone. I'm still running an old Mitsubishi Diamond Pro 920 19" monitor I purchased back in 2000. It's been a great monitor, but I'm considering upgrading to a wide screen flat panel. My reasons...
  5. Re: Best card for an older Pentium 4 system with AGP 8X to run games?

    Are there 256 bit AGP cards? I didn't see any.

    It might be running Counterstrike Source or DOD Source and I'd like to get a fairly decent framerate.
  6. Re: Best card for an older Pentium 4 system with AGP 8X to run games?

    The price still hasn't come down much on that Asus card.

    It's even worse than you're thinking..

  8. Re: Best card for an older Pentium 4 system with AGP 8X to run games?

    Thanks for the suggestions so far. Sorry, I thought I had posted my video card specs, I have a Geforce 2 MX 32MB.

    I used to run it on an old overclocked Athlon and a 64MB Geforce 4 440MX with a...
  9. Best card for an older Pentium 4 system with AGP 8X to run games?

    What would you recommend for a video card to run Half Life/Counterstrike/DOD Source on an older P4 system that's been upgraded to 2.6Ghz?

    I don't want to spend alot, but I also want to get the...

    Re: 8 core?

    Well, I keep hearing that they've hit some sort of physical barrier to transistor size, so apparently until they figure out how to overcome that, we'll probably keep seeing larger and larger cpu's....
  12. Re: Fastest Intel processor for Socket 478, 400Mhz FSB?

    I did finally go with the Pentium 4 512k 2.6Ghz if anybody is interested. I looked at it for a couple months and finally took the dive a couple weeks ago, deciding it's alot cheaper upgrade than a...
  13. Re: hi am newbie.. looking for video card AGP...under 60 $

    I remember playing Counter-Strike back in the day when the nVidia TNT card was the TOP DOG. Before the Geforce 256 came out and before GPU's. :)

    That link above was like a video card for a...
  14. Re: Fastest Intel processor for Socket 478, 400Mhz FSB?

    I noticed the 2.4Ghz Celeron has 512K of cache while the 2.8Ghz only has 128K that kinda stinks, I wonder if I should go with a 2.4Ghz.
  15. Re: Fastest Intel processor for Socket 478, 400Mhz FSB?

    I just found a 2.8Ghz that will run on 400FSB. Looks like that's top dog.
  16. Fastest Intel processor for Socket 478, 400Mhz FSB?

    I have an old Gateway with a 1.6Ghz and it's Socket 478, 400Mhz FSB. I have not kept up with this stuff lately. What is the fastest processor I can upgrade it to now? Is is the 2.6Ghz Celeron? I just...
  17. Re: May be purchasing a new laptop in the near future, what's a good deal?

    Hmm.. wish we had a Circuit City around here. There's a shortage of those types of stores in this area for some odd reason.
  18. May be purchasing a new laptop in the near future, what's a good deal?

    Ok, so I may be purchasing a laptop in the not too far off future. I was thinking of spending no more than $600 or so, but I could spend more if it would really make a big difference.

    This laptop...
  19. Re: Want to build a very cheap rig (best value) need advice

    Wow, thank you!

    Now I wonder, should I get the 300GB ATA100 Seagate with the 16MB cache, or the 300GB SATA/150 with the 8MB cache.. Doesn't look like there's an SATA with 16MB cache strangely...
  20. Question about the memory in an Intel machine.

    I ran WCPUID on an HP Pentium 4 Intel machine, I believe 2.53Ghz and it shows the memory running at 533 Mhz. This doesn't make any sense to me. Is it 266Mhz DDR? The system is about three years old....
  21. Want to build a very cheap rig (best value) need advice

    Basically I need some components. I'd need a barebones type thing. I need a case w/motherboard and a processor, something cheap I suppose in the 3Ghz range. I also need memory 1 gig (two 512's)....
  22. Re: What would you go for, if you only had $250 or so to spend on a box?

    Thanks for the suggestions everyone.

    Sick Willie, most of us on Candlepower forums refer to Home Despot and Office Despot as this. More out of habit than it being funny anymore. :D

  23. Re: What would you go for, if you only had $250 or so to spend on a box?

    It has an integrated 1MB PCI card. I know that sucks for video, but I don't think a faster card will help the situation much with the slow MB, processor and everything else. There's an Office Despot...
  24. Re: What would you go for, if you only had $250 or so to spend on a box?

    Thanks for the suggestions. I really don't need a hard drive, since I have the 30gig from this system and the 160GB external. I could put the 160GB into a new system because it would be faster. Only...

    Hi everyone. Been awhile since I posted a thread here. I'm having a bit of a conundrum. I was without a computer for awhile. I have one at work, but I really like to have a home computer as well....
