    Well since getting my laptop with an E450 which plays things like COD MW and L4D2 reasonably well, the A8-3850 should suffice for most current games at 720p which will be fine on my 37" TV, really not coming close to using the horsepower of my 2500k at 4.6ghz whatsoever, don't even encode these days as I have my PC hooked up to my xbox for streaming and a direct connection to the TV via hdmi for anything the xbox won't play :rolleyes:

    Can any of you help me?

    I got my old copy of red alert out and tried to play it, and all that happens is a little message comes up telling me windows can only run x86 or x64 software

    is there a way to fix this?

    Yes, I set it to windows 95 (the system requirement) and it didn't change a thing

    I don't see why it shouldn't run

    as far as I'm aware I meet all the requirements
    75Mhz proccesor
    8MB of Ram
    1MB Video Card
    Direct X 3

    Hmmm... might just be too old. You'll probably find someone who has got it working via Google.

    Logitech MX Performance mouse, 1 year, how much would you pay for one of those? I am thinking that I should be paying £20-40 for it, but not too sure exactly how much.

    Points of reference: £70 if I buy new form Logitech, and G700 is £57 from Amazon.

    Well, if I am cooking might as well cook for my flatmates to get points. I get to flame them when they annoy me :)

    yeah.... since the laptop only supports Sata II, I was looking at getting a OCZ Agility 3 or Petrol.

    120Gb Agility 3 costs less then £100.

    bit pointless getting a M4 for this as i cant use it at its full potential
