Windows Vista is not that bad actually, after SP1 and the shittons of patches.
in that case any idea where the ram usage is coming from?
quick check see's that the bowsers only using 370MB by itself
get an 13 inch laptop, they are more portable
no,i've had to carry a 15.6" laptop about a mile or so down the road so i could get internet access yesterday, i have no problem with 15.6" so long as their not really heavy bricks
Tbh I think 13 inch laptops are better than 15.6 in terms of mobility, but not many people pack enough hardware into 13" form, and they are quite expensive in this regard.
Its cool. I usually dont know what day it is if i havent been getting enough sleep
i was just looking that a Mobility 4330 is the same as HD 4570 minus clock speeds, i am pretty excited, how can i overclock a mobility card?
if i get around 600core im all set
ATi Tray tools. I managed to overclock my X1600MR before i sold off my old laptop.
with msi afterburner or riva tuner just like a desktop card i think with ATI's mobile cards
i just dumped 2GB onto the ram though the 7zip benchmark utility, looks to be OS caching mostly, as the ram usage goes up then stats diving back down when it hits full load
after running the 3GB 7zip, my ram usage with the exact same programs open is down to 1.75 so it does look to just be the OS
found out my ram problem, turns out i had a ram disk running
lol who did that?
me a very long time ago, and i've never used it
Guys need some recommendations on new/old games to play, nothing in my steam account seems to stand out to me lately and I would like to get into something new, that said, never really played through Metro 2033 so that's one option though would like to hear some more. I mainly have FPS but I think I need a change as I am bored of playing all the same shit, like resi evil, silent hill type games too, winning suggestions get cookies
i've been thinking of trying this, imagine how good that artwork will look when you fullscreen it, sort of thing that would make me connect it to my TV
Looked at that a bit earlier doesn't really grab me, however Limbo looks hella fun!! would like something to tax my new 570 at the same time
who cares about how much it taxes your graphics card, i gave up on realism ages ago, because at the end of the day, a lot of these high profile release seem to put 90% of their time into graphics, and 10% into game play where it should be the other way round, that said, occasionally some come out that fulfill both
just find something that looks nice and is cheap
there's a demo of bastion if you want to give it a go anyway
try out from dust, it is quite good actually...
i just tried the bastion demo,i wasn't sure about the game, but if the full game is hyalf as good as the demo it'll be worth the £11, so i'd recommend that to MdMk
I have now switched to Google Chrome,my mozilla was infected with crappy "facemood" search even though i got rid of it 1st time. It came back with trace or anything on my system after updates.
I have even used search and destroy and malware software to get rid of it. Which i did and its still there.
Even config firefox to google search,nothing.
So now i am using chrome,i loved firefox aswell.

For sharing (thanks to Thrackan).............
amazing prices. but Im weary of Crucial after they shafted one of the members on TPU recently
More like the guy came over and cried his eyes out, and everyone offered him tea and biscuits, but that is besides the point.
Maybe so. but he was given 2 or 3 refurbs that died? then when he asked to be given a new drive it turns out it was a refurb as well.
you can cry your eyes out but if this is the way Crucial handles its customers then i wont buy from them.
Yeah, that was major fail from Crucial. He could have gone for consumer protection or something like that and get them to sort it out for him.
