    Applications not recognised/working after installing new drive

    Thank you for your reply. I thought maybe I could un-install the software from the original drive but none of them are showing when I go into control panel to uninstall software! Which makes sense to me now after what you said. I guess I could just backup important files and then format...

    Price difference on the HD 5870

    I was just wondering why there is such a difference in price on the same videocard but different company! For the example the Saphire is considerably cheaper than the Asus version. Is it just down to brand name and maybe the warranty or is there more to it? Also, if I was to upgrade from a...

    Would I notice any difference....

    My current setup: Asus P5Q Q6600 HD 4870 OCZ Gold Edition 4GB (2x2GB) PC2-6400C5 I really wanna upgrade everything (purely because I am a snob) but the recession tells me that for now maybe just videocard and memory. So in terms of memory I was thinking of maybe Corsair Dominator...
