    Re: My PC past

    Over the years, I've had both AMD and Intel CPUs die on me, and both companies have had the same "all we can do is sell you another one" attitude - so I now show them the same level of loyalty they...

    Re: EA's origin... could it be worse?

    C&C 4 was the last game I bought from them and I remember days and days where I couldn't play because of server issues - they really have no excuse whatsoever for this as it's happened so many times...

    Re: Windows 8 really worth it?

    There are a couple of problems with this list IMO heh.... Firstly, Windows 95 wasn't that bad, Windows 98 wasn't much good until they got around to 98SE which was a pretty good, stable OS. Windows...

    I use W8 on my main laptop, which with the weather (which makes the computer room bloody freezing) is currently my main PC and there really isn't anything wrong with it - if you install it, try it...
  8. Re: Server Died - weird issue with one of the pool drives

    Was Windows 8 - but it was me being stoooopid -found the files - hidden away EXACTLY where I said they were - I was looking in a different "Shares" folder - the one that keeps a copy of all the files...
  9. Server Died - weird issue with one of the pool drives

    So my Windows Home Server turned up it's toes and I was unable to properly remove the drives from the system through the WHS console. Not a big deal (I thought) as you can access the hidden DE...
  10. Re: what's your favorite childhood computer game?

    Heh - Atari ST - I remember wishing for one, or an Amiga but alas my parents declared my Spectrum 128 +2 adequate for my needs, especially as it was an "upgrade" from my Commodore VIC-20....

    Yup,...

    Re: Rip videos to disk?

    If there is no copy protection to worry about, I suggest you try out Fairuse wizard (for windows) - I actually bought the full version as the free one is limited to a max output size of 700mb but the...
  12. Re: Challenge for you search addicts out there

    Well I haven't heard anything either way - and I'm not one for poking sleeping bears so until I'm told it's wrong, I'm calling it right :P
  13. Re: Challenge for you search addicts out there

    To be honest, I don't know if it's a DVD recorder or just player - and the part number came from the customer, but it does check out.

    I did find something, apparently this unit is PART of several...

    Re: My new toy.

    idn - the thing with modding is (or tends to be) it's a reflection of the modder - otherwise you're effectively becoming just a tool instead of an artist :P

    Re: My new toy.

    I can't speak as to intel/amd performance specifically (fastest intel I own is a 775 Q6700) but I have one of the 8 core AMD Black Editions (8120) and it does everything I need and then some so I'm...

    Re: Someone in the UK buy this for me?

    As the magazine is nearly 4 (roughly $6.50) and you have to pay shipping to a UK address of 2.49 (roughly $4) then shipping to the US assuming it's less than 100g which is a reasonable assumption...

    Re: Do I Need to Upgrade my Memory?

    More memory is always good but the truth of the matter is, with the uses you listed, you'll probably see very little improvement going from 4 to 8 GB. I personally have 16GB in my main pc, and my...
