Hi, my computer seems to block all ports even though I have no firewall or router. I can do things like IRC and web browsing but I can't receive DCC in IRC or use file share programs. I can send with DCC though.
When I do online port scans all ports seem to be closed/blocked.
Can someone explain to me why the fuck my laptop's HDD is constantly scratching away while my laptop is idle and I'm in bed? :mad: :mad: :mad: I do mean literally seeking/writing/whatever the fuck *constantly*.
Anyone heard anymore? :confused: With Dell's decision about AMD it looks like Intel can't afford to delay or scrap their "CSI" and need to bring it out as soon as possible.
Will Nehalem have CSI ~2008, or? :confused:
Maybe not but I'm not getting it just for CS 1.6. I want to hopefully never need to upgrade again as I don't game at all except CS 1.6. I might buy something like X2 4400+ after the Conroe makes the prices drop. But Conroe seems like it will price very attractively anyway so I might just get that.
I just need something that is 99fps (constant) capable in CS 1.6. The CPU will be medium to high-end so that should be OK, for example: low end Conroe or X2 4200+. It's just the graphics card I wasn't too sure about.
Any idea how 950 will compare to the low to medium-end Conroes? Will it be better to get a low-end Conroe for Vista for example? I'm not a gamer at all. But I want a very smooth Windows experience when multi-tasking etc. The only game will be CS 1.6.
What is a great external enclosure? Something that has great build quality, so maybe plastic with rubber layer to soften small impacts. I was thinking firewire would be essential feature, but is there much difference in performance? :confused: I think build quality is more important maybe.
