wondering if its worth upgrading the old wifi card in my laptop. Probably not...
get an SSD now their less then £1/GB --> Kingston 96GB V+100 2.5" SATA-II SSD - Read.. | Eb...
this is sata 1 though so id never get the full speed out of it. plus my old laptop doesnt have AHCI
doesn't matter, it'll still be 3x as fast as a notebook drive and its the seek speed that makes the real difference apparently
hmmmm... I'll have to think about it. I just upgraded to a 250Gb HDD on this thing. the only other thing i was thinking of was getting a Mini PCI-E PATA IDE 8GB SSD and use it for readyboost
good find with the Kingston SSD though. I might get it just put a few of the regular games i play on it.
How much of a difference does readyboost make for older systems, my old system is a 3500+ 939pin.
I think it was more dependant on the amount ram you had. if you had more then 2Gb then it wouldnt make much difference at all.
No it improves the starup on my pc so...
I've been led to believe it works quite well. Tatty recommended it to us a coupla weeks back so I'll be looking for a decent size memory stick soon.
Well it has 4x512mb of DDR but its kinda sluggish at startup. It used to have a x2 4200+ but one of the pins broke this was around about 2 years ago. Someone said to solder it back on but i lost the pin and my soldering skills are non-existent.
So a 2gb flash drive might speed it up a little? It uses Windows 7 and btw XP aint noticeably faster. Im thinking a nice faster hard drive would speed up load times but hell im not putting my money into it.
Did you try the chip with the pin missing? CPU's still work even if some of the pins are missing, depends which pins though.
I don't know how big a memory stick you need, wiki says at least 256MB. I thought you needed at least 4GB or summat, but seems not
Yeah i tried the cpu again in the slot after it broke i also tried the foil trick too. Its a no boot. Probably could stick it on ebay for spare/repairs but never thought it was worth my time.
I think i had told someone in the clubhouse about the chip before like a few weeks ago.
Im thinking since USB memory sticks are so cheap why not try readyboost. Just need to buy a cheap stick. My 4gb stick is used as a memory card for my 360.
Also looking for some budget headphones made a thread if anyone has recommendations.
Scams ram came today, fucking fast postage. I dunno what the hell the Royal Mail did to get it here so fast! Gonna test it in my mates system either later today or tomorrow.
Anybody here want a Google+ invite? PM if you do with your email.
They cut a lot of jobs. thats what they did!!
Thats the fastest ive ever had a package delivered by Royal Mail. Generally im lucky with RM i get all my parcels fast and intact. My house gets a lot of spam mail though i think most houses do these days.
EDIT: My new postman is a joke though i dont know what shifts he gets but he never delivers at the same time it can be anytime during the day up till even 3pm! My old post man was there every day at the same time more or less.
I had someone call me about my 5850s on gumtree last night.
Little bitch was complaining about paying £240 for both of them. When i mentioned that the cooler had twin turbo pro's on them he asked me to take them off and just sell him the naked cards to him cheaper as he was going to watercool them anyway.
So i hung up the phone.
really good work freedom
Good new everyone, those servers with 44GB of ram will in fact be running a 32 bit version of windows, only wasting just over 9/10th's of it
Not bad, considering I'm about as far away from you as I can get!
you guys all use windows 7, this is perhaps the best mod anyone's ever done on windows ->http://gizmodo.com/5820306/watching...t-infinitely-cuter-with-the-nyan-cat-download
EDIT: where have you all gone???
i guess you guys got stuck with this -->
WHAT THE FUCK?!
are these retards new to computers or do they claim to be tech "experts"?
they have decided they will wait six months before they do any virtulization and as such, are having to run the machines in the mode they need for compatibly
EDIT: New AVATAR, we really need to resync, i'm thinking something strange or unusual this time, something the NON-UK'ers won't recognize
x64 is not less compatable with software! only the drivers are a little picky but if the systems are new-ish then they should have no troubles...
some IT experts.... im sure all of us could do an amazing job in comparason to them...
