    Firefox on Windows 7

    So I've been playing around with Win7 for a while now and I thought the feature with IE8 and being able to see your tabs through the taskbar was genius, however, I just don't like IE as much as FF, sure they are comparable in performance but IE just feels to clutterd to me and i don't like the...

    Laptop with Core Duo T2400

    Hey guys, I have a laptop that I only use for playing games when I go home or on a trip. So that means 90% of the year it sits in a drawer doing nothing. I would like to start folding with it and I was looking at the clients and saw that my options would be running two instances of the...

    Quiet IDE 2.5" Drive

    I have a old Toshiba Portege 3500 Tablet with the factory Toshiba MK4019GAX HDD in it and it is painfully loud. I use this computer for taking notes in class and in a lecture hall with only the professor speaking, this thing echos throughout the room... it's a bit embarrasing. Also it's really...

    Question about member titles.

    I was reading in the FAQ sticky how the member titles are based on different size RAM modules, pretty cool. However, I was just curious as to why 256 wasn't used. Reason I ask is that I still have an old computer that has a maximum limitation of 512MB so it is using two 256MB sticks and I feel...

    HD4850 & HL2 performance update

    Hey guys, a while back I made this and this post on the forum because my HD4850 was performing pretty crappy compared to what I had seen online and when comparing to my brothers 8800GT. Everyone seemed to be pretty split on what the problem was, with a lot of people recommending cpu bottleneck...

    Hey I'm looking for a program that will monitor the voltage of my memory. I currently have Everest Ultimate and HWMonitor and neither have anything listed under RAM voltage. There are some numbers that I'm not sure of, but they don't seem like they would be ram.

    Need new faster DDR2 memory!

    Hey guys, I'm in the process of upgrading to 4GB of memory. I'm looking at these two sets as they are both on Asus' QVL and run at almost the same timings (I would probably just set the OCZ to 4-4-4-12 anyways). Which set of sticks would you guys recommend? I'm also open to anything that you...

    Why does my HD4850 suck!?

    Ok guys.. if you followed my previous thread then you know that I was having major issues with my Gigabyte HD4850. Well I bought a new motherboard for many reasons, needed something that overclocked better, wanted raid, and support for crossfire down the road. So I got this P45 chipset board...

    4850 Performance in HL2

    Hey guys, I just got my Gigabyte HD4850 a couple of days ago and i've been very disappointed in the performance I am getting in HL2 and mods. This is pretty much the primary game that I play so I was really hoping to play maxed out and smooth with this card. Info: running Catalyst 8.7 Beta...
