    Looking to upgrade from Phenom 9600

    Looking to upgrade. Trying to stay as cheap as possible. Just looking for a CPU. I have an ECS A780GM-A v1.1 mobo (AM2+) Is the Athlon II x4 620 a decent upgrade? I do a lot of video editing. Not a lot of gaming. Rest of PC's specs in sig. What about an Athlon II X3 to save some...

    Merom Celeron or Yonah Pentium Dual Core?

    My wife's laptop runs a Merom based Celeron running at 2ghz. It runs decent, but has a hard time viewing HD videos. Also, since there is no throttling, it gets a little hot in your lap. Since the warranty just expired, I was thinking of upgrading the chip, but C2D chips are really expensive...

    Disable auto Phenom TLB in Windows 7

    OK, my BIOS doesn't have a TLB fix override toggle. In Vista I used the program here and set it to run on every boot up and it worked like magic: It doesn't work in 7 Pro x64. I've tried...

    BFG 9600GT Coil Noise

    I know there is a big thread about it on the AMD/ATI board, but I wanted to see if any people on the green side have this problem. The noise is a high pitched electrical whine. It's not the PSU or the GPU cooler. It is definitely coil noise coming from the analog voltage regulators on this...

    Install graphics driver for Server 2008 standard

    Installed Server 2008 in my server (ditched FreeNAS). It's just going to be a simple file server. Nothing fancy. I've heard from others that you should just leave the standard VGA driver alone. It's going to be a headless server connected via gigabit ethernet. Won't that offload the video...

    Backup FreeNAS to Windows

    I have a FreeNAS server that I set up on my network. It contains all of my data. When I access my music, etc. it's sreaming the data from the NAS. I want to backup that data to a hard drive on my local windows box. I thought about using SyncToy. It's painfully slow, though. I can send...

    Turn my old super thin p2 266 laptop to a netbook

    Is it worth it? I have an old Toshiba notebook. It has a p2 266 with 256mb RAM and 10gb hard drive. The reason I want to use this as a netbook is that it has a 12" screen and could give the air a run for its money in thinness. It was REALLY expensive back in the day and came with Win 98. I...

    Stop a certain HD from spinning in Vista?

    I don't like my main HD to stop spinning in Vista, so I turn it off. But, I have a backup HD that only runs 3 times a week for backing up data. I don't need it spinning 24x7 when it is only accessed maybe a few hours a week at most. Is there a way to stop that certain HD from spinning, then...

    ECS A780GM-A BIOS problem

    I flashed my BIOS to the newest BIOS because I had hoped it would solve IDT sound issues. Well, after I flashed it (the program said successful), I got a CMOS Checksum error. The BIOS would not save any changes. No matter what you did, nothing saved. It was as if the BIOS was in read only...

    Wii Media Center

    I have been busy looking on the interwebs for a Wii Media center. I want to be able to listen to my music (mainly), look at pictures (some time), and watch video (rarely). I've tried Orb, but it took too much PC resources. There's one I haven't tried, but development stopped, so no...

    Why can't I find a Wii???

    I have been searching for weeks now for a Wii that is not bundled with some crappy games that costs $400+. All I want is Wii and Wii Fit and I don't want 3 or 4 crappy games I'll never play. I have been paying close attention to, but no luck for at least 3 weeks. Every...

    PCI-E SATA controller vs. onboard

    I have a crappy mobo (the free ECS 6100-sm mobo that Fry's hands out with their AMD CPU/mobo deals). It only has 2 SATA ports onboard (not sure of the chipset, but it is SATA-II). So here is my setup: Onboard SATA port 1: 160 GB WD Boot HD (although Vista insisted on putting the boot...

    Not as dumb a question as it sounds: Celly or P4?

    My wife's Dell Inspiron 1150 lappy is starting to show it's age. It has 1.25GB PC2700, 2.6 celeron (no speed step) 400mhz, and an 80GB Seagate 5400.3 IDE. I opened it up one boring afternoon and to my dismay, it's just a desktop proc s478 chip, heat spreader and all. My question is, does this...

    Dell Inspiron 1150 CPU upgrade?

    Just received a free Dell Inspiron 1150 laptop and am going to give it to my fiancee. It has a celeron (ugh) 2.6 ghz. 26 x 100 bus = 2600 mhz. I opened it up to see what was in it and much to my chagrin, it has a full fledged desktop cpu in it. The celly has a heatspreader and nowhere on...

    Cool & Quiet Vista 32-bit

    How do you enable it? I know that there is no official driver from AMD. It is enabled in my bios (see sig for specs) - I tried downloading that XP 32-bit driver, ran it in XP compatibility mode w/ admin rights, and it installed correctly. I can also see this when I create a custom power...

    AMD Athlon XP 2500+ or Sempron 3100+?

    Like the title says, which would you rather run? My soon-to-be-fiance has an Athlon XP 2500+ Barton core in her pc now. It's a mATX board and case. Is it worth it to buy an el cheapo $25.00 (after rebate) mATX mobo and throw in that s754 Sempy I have laying around? Or would she just be fine...

    So what's the difference in the new FXs?

    Saw it on the main page, The Afthlon 64 FX 70, 72, 74 are 2.6, 2.8, and 3.0ghz respectively. So what makes a FX 70 different than an FX 60? If it has anything to do with the performance numbers like vanilla Athlon 64s the 70 should be what about ~20% faster than the FX 60 - yet it is the...
