    I still might be able to get what I had originally planned if I can talk to my old man about it. Otherwise, I'll probably have to back it down to at most 600, preferably in the 550-575 range. I was considering going down to the DS3L as originally planned because I don't need the RAID but...

    Well, as luck would have it, I was denied for the Newegg preferred account, so I'll either have to go back to some of my lower specs or find some alternative funding.

    Thanks for the help with the power supply. And on the motherboard front, if I'm gonna go with the DS3R, is there any sureshot advantage of getting the DS3R over the DS3L?

    Shipping and tax is a deal killer on that one, but I'll go with the VisionTek on Newegg. Thanks for the advice. You know what...I might renege on my initial stubbornness to get the E4500 and instead go with the E2160 since the newer chips will be coming out soon and to save some money for now...

    I was actually talking to my supervisor about this today and I decided on the Abit board so I could get the better cooling and stuff. I'm planning on overclocking and feel like this would be a better board than the Gigabyte. I kind of wanted the legacy ports, but I could do without. I think I...

    I've got an Acer 22" Widescreen LCD. Sorry I forgot to respond to that part of your post. Should I possibly go for a Conroe processor? Or should I stick with the Allendale for now and then get one of the new 45 nm processors further down the road?

    So I did a lot of thinking over the past week and have updated my build a bit. I've decided that I'm just going to go ahead and sign up for a Newegg Preferred Account so I can get the zero interest for 6 months. With this, I'll be able to spend additional money up front. The new build is as...

    Gwarren007: I'm looking for something in the ATX format, not so much the Micro ATX since I have a couple PCI cards I need to use and if I get a decent video card, it'll need room to breathe. Thanks for the suggestions though! Tiraides: I'll probably keep the E4500, just would rather get...

    So i've been out of the game for almost 4 years and need your help with building a new system. For comparison, my current machine is an Athlon XP 1700+ with 512MB DDR. Originally, I was going to go with an AMD system but within the past day or two, I've had some time to read other's comments...

    ThinkPad Hanging

    I might have found the possible culprit (well, at least in an abstract sense). I downloaded Process Explorer and have found that the stuttering and hanging up of the system occurs when there is an unusually high amount of CPU usage due to Hardware Interrupts. I have gone through the Event...

    nonsequitur: Thanks for the link, since I don't have a floppy drive on this laptop, I'll have to go the route of the Bootable ISO, so I'll try that when I get back to school since I don't have any blanks here with me at home. TheJackal: See, that's what I thought at first but I had F@H...

    ThinkPad Hanging

    I'm fairly sure that it is not the problem because it would be more evident. The laptop ran fine from June until October and then for about another month after I got it fixed. What would be the easiest way to test the memory?

    ThinkPad Hanging

    Sorry for the longish post. Alright, this has happened before and my solution then was to get the machine reimaged. I have a ThinkPad T43 and a few days ago, a problem that like I said, began to occur again. Randomly, my system decides to slow down to a crawl and my cursor stutters, if...
