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.
Cheap refurbs are good. but not if even Crucial themselves dont expect the drives to last that long.
says it all pretty much
The only thing impressive that crucial has made has to be ram in my opinion.
their C300 got a lot of good reviews and recommendations.
the QC on the refurbs are 'Questionable' shall we say.
i've found an even better laptop then yesterday, its a 17", has a sandybridge processor and good enough graphics to play BC2 on medium apparently http://outlet.euro.dell.com/Online/...ch.aspx?rn=7042&SC=&c=uk&cs=ukdfh1&l=en&s=dfh all for around £370 with this code applied $ZR43KX7QXHFB1
still, that's not going to be good on battery life is it...
don't know why
Firefox is annoying me, it seems to want to chew up 200-300mb of ram and the plug in container uses up almost 100mb. Not that much really but i only have 4 tabs open and non flash heavy sites loaded, it was was also crashing in Google Earth when i was showing my cousin a route to college it was just freezing it did that before i think its a flash problem.
My ram usage is 2.52gb, ive only got Firefox and Steam minimised to the task bar. Whats going on there? I don't even have an anti virus running in the background. Not that the pc is slow but just wanting to know whats chewing up the ram? Is it as simple as the OS wants the extra ram? Its not like im seeing any extra speed boosts from having it use more up, folders and stuff just pop open in the same speed as when i had 4gb.
