I was asking because I'm going to be selling my pair.
i always thought crysis was CPU limited, but it actually appears to be more CPU limited then i thought
when i played through on a 2.4GHZ Athlon x2 and this graphics card i got around 25PS on maximum, now with a 3.5GHZ quad core i get 35FPS
The answer remains the same, £25 is a fair price, but if I am the buyer I will get the one I posted. Maybe you will need to reduce it to £20, ram prices are falling fast.
I thought the 7-8-7-24 timings (at stock) would get me a bit more. Meh, £20 it is then.
Trade psu and graphics, I think we have a cheap computer here.
Hard drive is small and the Ram is only 3gb, saying you could swap those out for cheap but then your nearly at a full build if you swap the gpu and psu.
Nice deal if someone plans to keep it stock, i would add in 8gb of ram just for the fact i think 3gb is pushing it you'd be maxing it a lot i think. Nice that it comes with a monitor too though.
I did a mini calculation few days ago and a system of that specs (without graphics card) will come up to £400+, and here Dell is willing to do it as almost half price (if you take the price of the screen away). No brainer imo.
Like i said if someone was going to use it at stock components its a really good deal.
I am having an argument on Hotukdeals on that deal Fourstaff posted.
How much does Windows 7 use at desktop? at least a gig of ram i would think? fuck mines is nearly 2gb.
2.21gb but that isnt the average users desktop useage but i still reckon its at least over 1gb.
I have around £350 to spend on a laptop
should i buy something like this - http://www.comet.co.uk/p/Laptops/buy-PACKARD-BELL-TS13-SB-030UK-Laptop/738930
i can however wait a month or two, in which case i will have somewhere like £380 to spend
a)buy the a3 3300m based system and hope it performs well enough
b)wait and see if October or November will bring anything better
the system will be used for light gaming (think civ 5 and lfd 2) although it would be preferable if battlefield would at least run on low.
it will also be used for internet + word and all the other stuff every computer since about 1995 has been able to do
Then once i have the laptop, i can try to get that stereo system i've been thinking of
I think that is a pretty decent system, you are probabily better of looking for an older system with better GPU
best I can see elsewhere have 220m/520m.
there Is always that pink dell with the 5650 but that would have to be about £20 cheaper before I would buy it
Gotta show you these pics of my oc'd phone. anyone beat my score?
the battery life on that thing yet be about 5 mins
posting this from a 540mhz wildfire
edit: 528mhz apparently
i have a faster mark but no overclocking
Its actually not bad, but i think more 1.2ghz for normal use,its 1ghz stock. I think its insane it will actually oc to 1.9ghz
I know those things overclock like hell but these dual core phones are something else completely!
very impresive tigger
Flat vacuuming done! That took more effort than expected.
I don't understand how these kettle power cable for monitor and TV fail after long use. ¬¬
Ive never had one of those fail, i thought i told you to get yourself down to tesco mate!
WOW what phone is that, pretty impressive for a small device. I wouldnt run it at that for long as you will kill the battery and the cpu heat will be immense but still fun to try it out.
Ive been looking for a Galaxy SII but kinda expensive, hope christmas makes the prices drop like a special or something.
I've got a Desire HD that will do 1.8Ghz, but battery life deteriorates quickly with that, 24/7 @ 1480mhz. Upgrade due soon but waiting till the 720p 1.5ghz dual core Ice Cream Sandwich handsets come out!
PS Been far too long since I last posted!
I have a Samsung Galaxy Ace that will do 42mhz although I need to stick it in the fridge to acheive that
galaxy ace is already overclocked from 600mhz to 800, i didn't really expect more from that CPU
HP ProLiant Athlon II Neo N36L MicroServer.. | Ebu...
£224.99 BUT you can get £100 cashback so its really £124.99
Nice little server, shame it only has one sata port but could be a nice media rig if you stuck in a low profile graphics card. Could stick linux and xbmc on it. Pretty sure the CPU is embedded but it would do its job.
EDIT: Not sure about how many drives you can actually install now, highlighted that it says 1 sata port for the controller.
Expansion Bays Total (Free) 1 ( 1 ) x front accessible - 5.25" x 1/2H ¦ 4 ( 3 ) x internal - 3.5" LFF
someone said in the comments it can take 4 drives
Thats handy to know, could be made into a small NAS.
