    Music skipping with LITE multitasking

    My buddy has a Dimesion 2400 with integrated audio (Analog Devices ADI 198x Integrated Audio). He has 512 megs of ram and Im guessing a processor of more than 2.4 gigahertz. When he surfs the web, his music skips. We tried reinstalling drivers. Another fix I've heard of is disabling the...

    Got $300 to burn! What's my best bet?

    Ok, right now my Athlon 64 box is hooked up to a 5 year old 15 inch beige beast. I need something better. I've been thinking along the lines of a 17" LCD, but sometimes the 19" Acer is cheap enough that I would bite on the offer. I don't game a lot, but would like to have a game-able...

    I've got some borgs spread out across the town and another rig on my LAN. I'm interested in a way to reach each rig's individual statistics from my home computer. This may have been covered in the FAQ, but I never found out how to configure EM for that task. Is there a way that box3n could...

    How much bandwidth does F@H consume?

    Lets just say per computer or for 100 computers. Assume that they are WinXP SP2. My school shares bandwidth with an ISP, so basically we get a free T1 line. Boss concerned that we'll suck up too much bandwidth if we fold.

    Folding Problem

    I use F@H 5.02, the graphical one, and now it's not folding. It is either saying "Attempting to send results" or "Attempting to get work packet" and it won't ever go to the folding part any more. I have restarted the proggie, but it won't start folding. It's been doing this for the past...

    Future of AGP

    I want to buy a 6800OC after xmas, but i was wondering if that was a good idea. With all the new chipsets for AMD coming out, and more availability of PCI-e cards, will AGP videocards go up in price? I've got exactly $300 in my paypal account, and I wonder if I should go now, or wait.

    DDRII and AMD64

    Does anyone know when DDRII will be used with Athlon 64 processors? I'm guessing it will have to be for nForce 4, but people are saying that it won't come out with nForce 4. Will DDRII have to wait until K9? Since the memory controller is integrated, won't they have to redesign it to accept...

    Quick Question-Censorship

    What i don't get is that the word f4nb0y gets automatically censored, but curse words do not. Just doesn't make sense. Is f a n b o y simply more offensive than "dirty words"?

    WindowsXP and Duron 750

    A client of mine is using a computer which contains a Duron 751mhz processor running WinXP Pro. It suffers from frequent lock ups and general sluggishness. Is this the fault of the processor? It has a 5200 vidcard and 576M of ram. If so, then i can easily slap in a new 2500 or so and a $50...

    6800U vs. 6800GT.

    I was just wondering if there is any reason at all to get a 6800 ultra over the GT. To me it seems like the same situation as the 9800xt and the 9800pro(if you get the same core). The GT is just underclocked, right? So i could easily just oc it to the speed of the Ultra, give or take?

    Is athlon xp good enough...

    I am in the market to build a new computer for mostly gaming, and I was wondering if Athlon Xp's are enough processor to power the next generation of game IE Half Life 2 and Quake 3 and the like.

    4x256 vs. 2x512

    Assuming there is room enough on my motherboard, and money is no object, which combination is the best for DDR SDRAM in dual channel. I have already dismissed 1x1024 because of lack of dual channel (although greater expandability). Thx in advance.

    OC'ing retail computers

    I recently learned, to my dismay, that most retail computer companies lock computers so that they cannot be overclocked. Companies I have heard of include, HP, Dell, Gateway, etc. I'm either looking to buy or build my first computer, as I need a computer of my own - mostly gaming. I look to...
