    Budget Overclocking Solution....

    Hey Well my A64 is getting a little long in the tooth... so I'm thinking of doing a upgrade. I mainly do this: Photoshop, Bridge (browsing through hundreds of 4MP raw files). Not much else. Maybe light gaming once in a while. Intel Pentium Dual Core E2160 $65.00 Western Digital...

    Overclocking with the ASRock 775

    I am definitely considering this motherboard. I will soon have a lot of DDR memory (3gb) and don't really care for video performance. I want to buy a E4300 and see how much I can squeeze from it. 300MHz FSB "only" yeilds 2.7GHz for the E4300... I was really hoping for 3GHz. Hm. //edit: Fack...

    Upgrade or Save?

    Upgrade or Save?

    I actually "upgraded" my camera to a 4.1MP one from a 6MP so I'm happy with my smaller RAW sizes. However, I also uprez them (and it handles uprezzing quite well) so I'll probably be dealing with 100MB images again. Another issue is, if I did save up ~$1000 (canuck monopoloy money) it'd...

    Upgrade or Save?

    Hello. My computer is pretty fast but getting slightly long in the tooth. I don't have enough cash to buy a new system (I'd love a conroe system but I'd have to buy everything again.) I'm curious if I should spend ~$250 to upgrade my current system (what I'd do is make my 1GB of RAM into 3...

    Anti Virus?

    I use AntiVir. Used to used AVG but it was too slow for my liking.

    Viable backup solution?

    Um... the backup drive would be plugged in for maybe MAYBE an hour a month. Sure, let's do say there is a power surge and everything gets fried.. wouldn't the tape solution be fried too (while writing?)
