    About to build one ;)
  1. Well, after a lot of internal conflict and double checking new deals on other sites, I am 95% sure I'll go with: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?sk...d=1218094855056 Any last thoughts before I go buy it tomorrow? Aside from the graphic card, i has all that I can ask for, considering the price. Spectrascope, you are correct, the second one you posted is sweet, but out of my price range.
  2. Hey, I wanted your opinion on two laptops. I know they are similar, but maybe you have some pointers to what makes one better over the other? Or you can suggest something better (seeing what I was looking at and it's price). THANKS!!! http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16834147989 vs. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16834114662
  3. What do you think about the 64bit OS? Will I be able to run older programs on it? (I hate to have to go out and buy new photoshop, when I can do everything I need on the old one, I would assume MSF Office XP will work fine on 64bit OS)
  4. How about older programs, from 2000? Will they work fine on 64-bit? (example, older Photoshop)
  5. What about the Laptop brands? any recomended ones? I heard today from a friend that Asus is good, while Acer not so much. The last link, for the Acer, the CPU is way to slow for my purposes, considering it would be a downgrade from Toshiba Tecra A6 (1.6GHz dual core).
  6. How does the AMD Turion X2 RM-72(2.10GHz) on this laptop compare to Core 2 Duo T6500 (2.10GHz)?
  7. Hi guys, I need help buying a decent laptop (best if under 700, but have some room to stretch my budget). I will be traveling around europe for a few months, so I need something that can handle photoshop and has decent battery. I did some research and here are the specs that I found should work: proc-T6500 (2.1Gh), HD 250+Gig, Memory 3+gig (4 is better). Plus trying to avoid 64bit OS. Also, trying to keep it under 5lb and 10-15inch monitor (prime would be 13). 1. I have a bunch of older programs (msf office xp, older photoshop ans acrobat, plus some older games like RVS) and I would like to keep them during my laptop upgrade. Unfortunately, I noticed that most of decent builds have the Vista 64bit/win7. And something tells me they won't work with my old progs. Does anyone have any experience with that? 2. In order to save some $ and still get some good specs I was considering some lower brands. Any thoughts on Asus, Acer or other? 3. Aside from newegg, anyone knows of decent site for laptop shopping? Any other thoughts?
  8. Moved to Misc. Hardware section. Sorry for mispost. http://forums.overclockersclub.com/index.p...howtopic=166887
  9. I was wondering about that G.SKILL PI Black 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800. Somehow I never really trusted G.Skill. I don't think I had any major reason for my mistrust, it's just the fact that I never really saw it in any major 'good RAM' recommendations. Any thoughts about G.Skill?
  10. All good points, but I have to go with Verran on that one. Thanks Verran! Chances are my set up will not change until next major upgrade, till then I will simply OC to 3.6 without trying hard to go over it (no need to blow up my comp for the extra .4 ... not for my needs). Once I upgrade ... or rather build a new comp, I will not be transferring the RAM to new one, I will most likely just 'donate' my comp my work (where it's stuck anyway right now). Bottom line, for my needs I'd rather save $20 and have what I would end up with anyway 800 @ 4-4-4-12. Thanks to this discussion I think I understand RAM a bit more. Thanks for in depth answers! HAPPY NEW YEAR 2009 EVERYONE!!! Cheers!
  11. Why? Chicago, but originally from Europe.
  12. I guess considering everything the price between the corsair and OCZ is really minimal, while OCZ is 1000 vs the 800 corsair. This might make it sweet if I decide to OC the heck out of the processor ... my cooling is way good trust me, although it's not water cooling, I'm running 4 good fans for the case, plus good proc cooling ... funny my readings show cooler processor than the case, i think i really do need to OC it a bit. I even had to do manual work on the case itself to ensure good airflow... and so I could fit all the fans I wanted.
  13. I know I have enough cooling to OC it quite a bit, and might do it in a future, but for now I will most likely not do it. - stopped gaming. So far I didn't OC it b/c I had an issue with some 'weard' OS loading lag (plus had blue screen of death in a past, that went away ... w/o a reason). I suspected bad memory, but all the mem. tests came back OK ... but very very slow.
  14. Hi guys, I'm currently running Team Xtreem DARK 2GB (2 x 1GB) DDR2 800, (other comp specs in my sig). The comp started to run sluggish at times so on top of better, bigger HD (mostly so I can move all my data to it and reformat the comp) I am thinking of getting some better memory. Considering that there are some killer deals out there right now I think it's a good idea. I will most likely not be overclocking as I stopped playing games. Here is what I'm considering: CORSAIR 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) - $25 after rebates OCZ Fatal1ty Edition 4GB (2x2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) - $35 after smaller rebates Edit: found this too: OCZ Platinum 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) - $35 w/ rebates I didn't see anything under $40 that would hit me as a good deal, but if you know of anything please let me know. Personally this upgrade I'd rather save some money. Thx.
