    laptop

    I need a small one for when I'm out to sea on my submarine, which is more than half the year. Not much room for personal things like laptops. I have a desktop anyways for regular use with dual 22" screens.

    HD video editing would be the most intensive process I'd be running. Price Range- I would like to keep under $700. I don't think I even saw anything more than that with a small screen like I want.

    I want a small (around 12") laptop that is powerful. Any thoughts on the Alienware M11x? Other suggestions?
  4. Are you serious? This thread is old and solved. I already admitted to being an idiot and not ending my Prime95 test.
  5. Wow, I figured it out. When I first built the PC up I ran Prime95 for a while to test things out. It's been running ever since. I thought for sure I closed it...lol
  6. I run avast anti-virus every night and it's never found anything. It's a brand new computer. Here are the specs: CPU: AMD Phenom II X6 1090T Motherboard: ASUS Crosshair IV Formula RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Videocard: HIS H685F1GD Radeon HD 6850 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 PSU: a 750W Cooler Master I got on sale at the local store I started thinking that Windows Task Manager doesn't monitor CPU usage very well and just always shows 100%
  7. Running Windows 7 64 bit. I've been monitoring the CPU Usage through the Windows Task Manager for a couple weeks now. I have yet to see anything except 100%. Even when I first boot up and the system is just sitting there. Is this normal?
  8. Haven't heard of that before, I'll look into it. Thank you.
  9. I've seen drivers that aren't available in 64 bit or windows 7 (particularly printer drivers for some reason). But ya, my windows 7 64 bit just can't run stuff. That last thing I tried was something I got from the blackberry web site last week. They said they don't support windows 7 yet so I had to use my netbook.
  10. One more thing, do you guys know what order I should install these in so that it defaults to booting Windows 7? Or is that order (order of the list displayed on boot) configurable in bios?
  11. Ok, thanks. I already have Windows 7 from my old computer and it's not the pro edition so I won't be able to run XP in a VM I don't think. I see your point about not installing 32 bit Windows 7 and Vista. I think what I'll go with is- Windows 7 64 bit Windows XP 32 bit Ubuntu I don't know if I like the idea of a virtual machine. I'll try it out, but I'll partition my hard drive in a way to will allow me to install Linux fairly easily later on. Maybe I just pick bad programs, but I seem to have issues with 64 bit all the time. I agree it's bad programming, but that doesn't matter to me when I can't load up my H&R Block Software (which worked just fine in 32 bit). I can think of 3 programs in the last month that wouldn't work in 64 bit. 2 of them said that in the specs too, so the developers know about it.
  12. My new PC gets built up tomorrow! Forum Post with Specs Here I'm starting to think about my OS options. Which one would work best? Option 1 (most likely)- o Windows 7 64 Bit o Windows 7 32 Bit Option 2 - o Windows 7 64 Bit o Windows 7 32 Bit o Linux And I don't know if this is even possible, but... Option 3 - o Windows 7 64 Bit o Windows 7 32 Bit o Windows Vista 64 Bit o Windows XP 32 Bit o Linux The advantages of having Option 3 would be having the capability to run any software I need. I still run into issues frequently with software not supported by Windows 7. I just had one the other day that doesn't support windows 7 or any 64 bit OS. So, in that case, Option 3 would be handy. Also, what Linux distribution should I use? It's been probably 5 or 6 years since I last used Linux so I'm not real familiar with what's out there right now.
  13. Thanks for the help. Here's what I ended up going with: CPU: AMD Phenom II X6 1090T Motherboard: ASUS Crosshair IV Formula RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Videocard: HIS H685F1GD Radeon HD 6850 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 PSU: a 750W Cooler Master I got on sale at the local store Hard Drives: 5 SATA 1-2TB drives from old PC Case: NZXT Phantom PHAN-001WT White Steel Blu-Ray Burner: LG Black 10X Blu-ray Burner Card Reader: SABRENT CRW-UINB 68-in-1 USB 2.0 Internal Card Reader Printer: HP Deskjet 3050 CH376A Up to 20 ppm 4800 x 1200 dpi Wireless Parts are starting to arrive today!
  14. My computer finally pooped out. I decided to go all out with a new one. I'm pretty stuck on the 6-core AMD Phenom II X6 1090T processor. Here's what I do with my computer: - HD video editing - Photoshop - I don't play games - General computing/ Software development (i.e. many programs at once) Here's the build list so far - AMD Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition Thuban 3.2GHz - My linkOCZ Flex EX 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133 (PC3 17000) - reuse my 4x2TB SATA drives (I have a ton of media) - unknown PSU (probably 1000W) - unknown graphics card - uknown motherboard right now Any thoughts? Any suggestions on a good motherboard and graphics card? I'm thinking about entering the realm of liquid cooling...not sure yet. The reviews on this site have been incredibly helpful so far!
