    Worth Upgrading to 8GB RAM?

    Ended up getting the RAM for Christmas. I'll play around with it when it ships. Once I successfully OC my CPU I'm sure the PC will last a few more years.

    Worth Upgrading to 8GB RAM?

    Good points all around. I do run multiple Internet windows and browsers simultaneously, and am looking at doing some music production. The question is whether the RAMdisk would be significamty faster than the SSD. I could experiment I guess, but then that leaves my system with 3gb of usable...

    Worth Upgrading to 8GB RAM?

    Well nothing specific. Standard stuff gaming, video encoding? I don't really understand ... are there no speed benefits to running a RamDisk? Is it only useful as a scratch disk? Is the benefit of Internet caching, TMP, Temp to a ramdisk just security.

    Worth Upgrading to 8GB RAM?

    So I'm about to install 2 Intel x25-m 80GB SSD's and thought about upgrading some other aspects of my system (See sig). I've heard some users are finding Q6600's are becoming bottlenecks when compared to the rest of their systems. So i gotta figure that my QX6850, awesome as it is, is on it's...

    Dump SSD Raid for Trim?

    According to that link, you need to buy one of those programs. Dammit I'm no closer to making a decision. Leaning towards 2 seperate drives , though. Reading that extensive article at Anand Tech, it seems you need to keep 20% of the drive free. Does that mean make the final partition size 20%...

    Dump SSD Raid for Trim?

    I guess my concern was in the event of the 2nd game/apps drive needing to que/communicate with the OS, a loss in speed would be introduced. Is it correct to assume that for TRIM and Garbage collection to work properly the respective drive(s) shouldn't be too full. Is 10% free still good enough...

    Clone RAID Partitions onto One Drive

    I was talking about file corruption. or failed copies for whatever reason... Usually access being denied because the file is somehow in use by the computer. I'll have a look at TeraCopy and see how that goes

    Dump SSD Raid for Trim?

    I'm in the exact same postition. Not sure whether there would be increased load time running the drives seperately. One 80gb for OS and apps and then the other 80gb for games and additional apps. Just got myself 2 80gb x25's. There are a two topics about whether to Raid or not but I'm still not...

    Clone RAID Partitions onto One Drive

    Yeah I guess I could do that, along the exact same lines as drozenski's thoughts. My only concern, I guess, is copying that much data with the simple Copy Paste method might not be that secure. Is there truth to this? would Robocopy be a better choice? I assumed Windows Copying would introduce...

    Clone RAID Partitions onto One Drive

    Hey [H] So I'm going to reformat my PC and install win7 onto a x25 g2. (Haven't decided on whether I should raid0 or not) Anyway my scenario is this. Right now I've got [2] WD 640's in Raid 0. This array has 3 partitions. {D} - [400GB Parition - 239GB Used] {E} - [500GB Partiion - 495GB...

    quick question about RAID

    I'm pretty sure that the raid 'controller' creates the array. So no, I don't think you can hot swap from one RAID array/configuration to another new one. Someone will correct me if I'm wrong but by removing the drives and switching solutions you are basically destroying your first Array. In...

    Intel SSD G2: 80 or 160GB?

    I might start a new thread but thought I'd ask here first. Just got myself 2 80gb x25's. There are a two topics about whether to Raid or not but I'm still not sure. Perhaps I can expand on the situation. With SSD, is it better to minimize the number of Partitions? Would there be more of a delay...

    Intel Q35 Chipset

    Hello [H] I'm trying to find some info about my onboard video card. Anyone have a good program or method of quickly determinning a Video Card's capabilities. Specifically an onboard GPU. I tried GPU-z but to no avail. Certain documentation tell me that my chipset will only support Open GL 1.4...
