I'm still lurking
Lurking but not contreebooting!
Post up guys im missing our nice club.....
Anyone have a spare Sata Controller sitting around??
Bought myself an OCZ Agility 3 SSD 120gb from Scan. I originally bought a 60gb Adata SSD but they are letting me return that for the OCZ.
Hope to hell i don't get any problems that others have with OCZ SSDs.
I also got a 120GB SSD for myself recently. Not a particularly fast one but it was only like 40 quid due to a HotUKDeals deal at the time.
Anyway, it was for my laptop, and while it was a bitch to fit it's made a difference. However I still find the laptop a bit slow doing things like surfing etc. It's a dell but I installed a clean Win7 install and the drivers are up to date. TRIM and full write caching are enabled. It's just slow at moderate/heavy browsing and even sometimes waking up and switching tabs.
It's a first get Core i3 (2.2ghz I think) and has 4gb ram (3 available or so). Any tips? I'm thinking this is the best I will get from this but my previous experience of going HDD>SSD on my desktop suggests it should be a fair bit faster now. Perhaps it's just a crappy SSD? 120GB OCZ Technology Vertex Plus. Even my Kingston SSD100 seemed quicker in my desktop my hazy memory suggests.
I've not disappeared, just far less active.
No idea, my brother is using a 1st gen i3 laptop too, and somehow feels more sluggish than my POS laptop. Install 64bit OS? I am shooting in the dark here.
I went from a 7200rpm WD Scorpio Black to a 240GB Sandisk Extreme SSD with my laptop.
with its combined 8GB of DDR3, 64bit OS and read speeds of 550MB/s it still feels sluggish, though many would say that an AMD E-350 is a weak processor which it is.
Its still a huge improvement compared to when i had a mechanical hard drive installed though.
Its just the way things are sometimes.
I know I don't post in this thread at the best of times, but thought I'd just let you guys know that I've massively downgraded my rig due to monetary issues and am avoiding the forums so I don't feel sad about epic rigs and such ha ha.
Hope everyone is well!
anyone know how i can Flash a LiteOn iHAS224 to a iHAS624??
Just bought a nice shiny chrome, chavvy exhaust backbox and performance air filter for my car
I got Skyrim recently and Guild Wars 2 also. Haven't had time to really play either for more than a couple of hours. Which first?
have you ever played Guild wars 1?
Hello tigger is still here, though not been on for a while.
then Guild wars 2 would be a great experience for you. Mind you though the game is still ridiculously buggy, voice acting can be exceptionally bad in some cases and the NPC Ai is thicker then a plank of wood when it comes to doing missions/quests that include them. Not to mention that they either do little to no damage which can make a few missions really hard if you solo them aaaaaaaaaaaaannd occasionally their armour is made out of bin liner and you will find yourself turning a mission into a drinking game which is what i did.....
Since you havent played the first guild wars. you have more of an open mind then a oldskool veteran like me whose spent 3 or 4 years in Guild Wars 1 and has uninstalled Guild Wars 2 because the developers have just totally dropped the ball and the product itself is clearly unfinished.
As many have said and which I am most inclined to agree with, to simply put it.... the devs needed more money. and what better way to make more money then release a game prematurely before its 100% finished and work on it while the game is live so it infuriates the people who bought the game and especially those veterans from GW1.
Its a nice game, it could be a lot lot better. Im waiting for an expansion pack to be released before i go back to it.
Uni is swamping me with shits
well make sure to flush and leave the seat down cuz i dont wanna smell it
Anyone want a Planetside2 key?
You sound like a Chav.
You sound butthurt, go troll elsewhere.
Passed my Driving test Was a most Nervous experience!
How many hours did you do? I passed last year and tbh wasn't really that phased with the actual test, though I did do an intensive course of 20 hours in 1 week with my test at the end and I think spending so much time in the car in the days before it helped 10x better than having a 1 hour lesson a week and taking half an hour to get back up to the level you left off at the previous week. Do you have a car yet?
I failed my Theory on Monday. I got 50/50 and then failed the freaking Hazard Test from hell.
Hazard perception is a crock of shit from memory, I didn't really get it, though managed to pass it
Thginking of getting a body kit for my car, and came across this one ( http://www.tuningshop.co.uk/acatalog/Peugeot_307__Euro4ce__Body_Kit.html ) that is supposedley "special price" though seems to good to be true as the kit cost is £215 though if you buy front and rear spoilers and side skirts seperately they come to £600.... worth taking a punt on? £250 delievered for a nice looking full body kit is quite good in any respect...
