Benchmark Scores What are benchmarks anyway?
My (non-techie) wife went through the closet and found an AM2+ board (Asus M4A79 Deluxe), Phenom II 940 BE, 4GB of Patriot DDR2 1066 Ram, MSI 4850 OC, Generic 550w PSU, CM690II Advanced, etc., and decided she was going to build her a rig, without any assistance from me. I had to help with the stock CPU Cooler mount, but otherwise, she did it all herself. I thought I would share with the old PC loving hardware guys (and girls) how proud I am of her effort to try and get into my hobby.

All I am going to say LOL is that I hated my 940be proc. Couldn't wait to get rid of it and replace it with something different. (1055t)

Generally English is pretty simple language. I'm learning it by myself, same as Japanese ;)
It was a sarcasm, refering to some native english who told me "in fact English is the hardest language in the world due to slang..."

Yep English is bloody easy and slang is pretty straightforward if you have some logic ... Swiss patoué (dialect) are way more difficult
Ie: tcheu l'botsh l'est taillé a botson en bas la dérupe! :D google translate me that ! ;)

I remember pressing that on my K6-2 system. It did not seem to do anything at that moment, so I never touched it again.

of course .... HP Compaq DC7900 non standard SFF mobo and ultra restrictive BIOS.... at last its compatible with Core 2 Quad ... and the PciE is 2.0 :roll:
i sold the previous one i salvaged for 140chf... this one i will keep it... and sell the DC7700p (need money hurk hurk hurk ;) )

but the R7 240 is nothing like at stock at last :D and hold pretty well considering the PSU being a 240W

gosh i just realized the DC7900 SFF can be upgraded till 16gb ram... (4gb atm 2x2) ok it's DDR2 but still .... the highest quad compatible is the Q9650

Yeah, not bad :) Some gaming for old games should be fine too with that kind of setup :toast:
your joking right? i can even play FFXIV ARR in notebook settings with that ... (and i still have a E8500 C2D and 4gb not a Q9650 C2Q plus 8gb)

pics... waiting for my video footage to be up on my dropbox and go youtube ! ;) soon (tm)
IMG_20140509_234547_728.jpg

seems pretty fluid for a 13-14fps xD oh and 45° max gpu temp

the APU run result in my sig is a ultra 2x fxaa preset this one i ran it in medium to be fair to the "old" cpu ;)
waiting on the upload of FFXIV benchmark standard
result
IMG_20140510_244202_707.jpg
1000-1499 indeed notebook mode needed or custom

in fact the ARR benchmark is more gentle than the initial FFXIV benchmark 54° max GPU 100% load 42-52° CPU 100% load on all core

good to see a old bag still capable of a good kicking if you add a cheap entry level "modern" GPU

ahahahhahah ... i remember when my 1st 486DX33 was running doom or doom 2 and a friend accidentally pressed the turbo button ... slideshow! (i wonder why the speed was 33 in turbo on and 7 turbo off ... )
From what I understand, it's because back in the DOS days, all programs ran in real mode (aka: as fast as they can). The turbo button was a way to slow down the computer so older programs/games didn't run too fast. Programs didn't wait for a number of seconds, they waited for a number of clock cycles.
Basically, it's a compatibility mode button.

Just did the round of street garbage before truck get all in morning. Got a full setup: MSI K4M4-L , Athlon 2400+ , 1gig memory, 2 x 80 gigs HDD (samsung+maxtor) , FX5200 agp 128megs, DVD-RW, hp cd-burner ,floppy, psu Coolmax V-400. Booting in XP but when background picture appear on desktop it goes all white after all over screen. Probably virus so i just save all files using external HDD enclosure then reboot system with xp pro.

Wow, that was kinda surprise for me :) I easily underestimate the low/lower mid-end GPUs so my bad :D

Haven't even tried FF XIV because IMO the whole FF series went to crap after FFX (when the Enix clowns came into FF business), so it's kinda unknown for me :D

technically Enix has nothing to do with the FF serie, Squaresoft did buy them but the FF team remained the same as before (afaik) and being one of the few to have as a favorite the VIII because of the non SD character i particularly like the XIV, tho from I to XIII i pretty much liked all FF except the XI which i never played. (well a part of the original FF team did quit and founded "Mistwalker" the studio behind one of the greatest rpg i played on Xbox360 ; Lost Odyssey ... duh i need to re buy a 360 :cry: )

also you can see i am a FF VIII lover ... my AV is a drawing for a Griever Tatoo: Griever is one of Squall Lionheart's G-Force (nope not Nvidia...) also as i said once if i except the typo, my forum name come from Griever(Greiver) and the Blade of the Gunblade of squall (or Weiss in FF Dirge of Cerberus)

also yep indeed never underestimate a R7 240 @950/2000 instead of 780/1800 (easiest OC ever! just push the limite to 20% and max all sliders... stock fan profile low temp : dead silent) even a DDR3 model :D since there was no 240 GDDR5 or 250 GDDR5 in 2gb low profile model i ended with that awesome piece from MSI (for 65chf ... could be worse)

for FFXIV ARR using custom preset and 1080P instead of 720P laptop mode i get 2800ish
now i totally need to find some DDR2 800(or more) RAM stick and a Q9650 to play some more with the old bag huhuhu

Why so impressed? :p jk

The XP refused to boot so I installed Vista 32bits home premium. Disconnected the hp cd burner and removed the Samsung. Left Maxtor for this rig and Samsung will be used in other rig.
