  3. Hi, I just added to new SATA 6gb/s to my system, and when ever the system goes on standby and comes back to life the drives disappear. SETUP - EVGA GeForce GTX 280 1GB PCI Express 2.0 x16 - PC Power and Cooling S61EPS 610W Continuous @ 40
  4. I was doing the 3570k because for 20 dollars I dont ming the .3 ghz extra, and i chose the k, just in case the video card also has issues, this one has the intel graphics 4000 in comparison to the others. I have not been able to test if the video card survived the shipment.
  5. Hi, My current PC got damaged during transportation (CPU killed, and motherboard clips broken) and I am looking to make it run again. My previous specs were the following - EVGA GeForce GTX 280 1GB PCI Express 2.0 x16 - PC Power and Cooling S61EPS 610W Continuous @ 40
  6. All, Thanks for the replies. I have tried the hardware accelerated decoding and it did improve performance, but there is still a little lag in just a couple of the bigger files. But with the new conditions I do not think it is worth upgrading the computer for now. Thanks for the suggestions!
  7. I will try that, and comment on results
  8. When I was diagnosing the sluggishness I tried to remove all other factors, and tried reading the movie file directly from the local hard drive and it still had issues (it was an .mkv file around 9 gb) The specs of the current computer are the following AMD Athlon Neo X2 6850e dual-core processor 1.8GHz 4GB DDR2 system memory ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4330 graphics With 512MB graphics memory 1TB 7200rpm hard drive
  9. Hi, At the moment I am trying to help my family setup the home network but I am not sure which is the best way to go. We are looking for a computer to connect to a 55" inch LCD tv, normally we use this to watch movies, youtube, internet TV streams, listen to music. Currently we have a Dell Zino HD connected to the TV, but the computer feels sluggish when playing high definition movie files. So we are looking for an upgrade in this area. We have a budget of around 1000, and we are looking for a smaller form factor that can handle large movie files and can interact with the current network with out problems. - Mac Mini - Alienware X51 - build something Setup (whole network) - 1 Windows PC - 2 Mac laptops - 2 Iphones - 1 IPad - 1 Apple TV - 1 HP media server so any help and recommendations are greatly appreciated, Thanks, Daniel

  12. My father wants to set up a home network, but i am not sure which equipment to buy for him. The plan is the following.. - He wants a central computer/server with all the music/video files from all the computers, so it can be accessed by any computer in the network or watched through an xbox. -There will also be another computer connected to a big screen tv via hdmi hopefully something small that can handle good quality videos. so my question is the following which server, small computer and software for general networking would you recommend to get this project working any help is appreciated thanks daniel
