Re: MADwETpYcIfZ

Depends what you're doing.

I need more, but then again I won't be able to use all 4gigs unless I use 64bit OS (which I wont yet).

Last year I was cursing my current computer (with 1gig), as it struggled and struggled for hours to sift through all the data I needed to process for my degree project.

I was using many gigs of page file back then.

Needles, you're a mother fucker. In a good way, but still. Mother fucker. I'm thresh btw, who you callin noob? Oh right, yeah, me.

Re: MADwETpYcIfZ

Well computers up and running, having some issues with the graphics card / open GL. Which is annoying because I want to see how it handles games.  But other then that it?s working like XP does.

Next step will be transferring all my music and files from the old computer.

Then begins the fun task of installing all my old programs + Plug In?s. sigh.

Loving the massive Res I can run, fucking Hell a 22 inch screen is big to, almost to big.  Almost.


I hope you like me and I fit in with your life.

Re: MADwETpYcIfZ

Downscaled from the massive 1680 x 1050 such a massive difference from the old shitty 1024 x 768. I'm in love with big res from now on ok.

Re: MADwETpYcIfZ

1024x768 is horrible.

I've been using 1600x1200 for years, it's the shit. 22" screen is nice, I'd like one of those, I'm using a 21" CRT, image is nice but it's a fucking huge fucker.

I set my new pc up a couple of days ago too (Tuesday I think it was).

So far I've overclocked it from 2.4ghz to 3.3ghz (and it's quad core, so thats like 10ghz lulz)

2na you NEED to download full game of Call of Duty 4. That has some serious graphics (gameplay is good aswell). Looks better than Crysis in my opinion (the so called "next gen blah blah" game), also runs faster.

NEEEEEEEEEERDS :biggrin:

Re: MADwETpYcIfZ

No Random bomb sounds but I do use headphone a lot so I might not hear it.  I have quick time alternative with windows Media player classic ? That I adore, but for videos, playing DVD?s is the ONLY thing I use Vista media player for.

Thresh, what are you doing to cool that chip?

I have a stupidly big heatsink for the cpu (called a Tuniq Tower), looks like this (from the net):
http://pedrorocha.planetaclix.pt/AsusP5Blx_fototower.jpg

The heatsink barely fits in my case. It's annoyingly big, but it's very good (and I've got it on silent)

and you can't add up the speed of all the cores like that - they're all independent or each other, so it's still an effective 3.3gHz, it's just you can run four threads at once.

Why can't you add it up like that?

It can do x number of ghz on each core, simultaneously, which means it's equivalent to doing the same amount of work on one core, at 4 times the speed.

Obviously it's a bit hand wavey, since there are overheads and also it's quite hard to programme some tasks to use 4 cores well

I'm at 3.4ghz so far. It's been slow progress, because my motherboard has this shitty voltage regulation problem (many motherboards have this actually) where under heavy load the cpu gets less voltage supplied to it, which means that shit goes to shit. You have to make up for this by jacking up the voltage, which means it can sit on a pretty high (and hot) voltage when idle, which is really not brilliant.

Re: MADwETpYcIfZ

@Disco
Who cares?

It's effective in the sense that it gives an indication of the performance, like a PR rating.

I never said it was 12ghz or whatever. I said it's like that. I.e an effective speed.

It has 8mb cache btw.

Also, your lecturing a guy with a 1st class Bsc in artificial intelligence and computer science tongue

I'm gonna jack it up to 3.6ghz tomorrow, or try...

that's like...14.4 ghz, lol

Re: MADwETpYcIfZ

Hello yes.

Well everything is probably set up and I LOVE my new computer, performance is incredible. Vista is lighting quick and I like it.  I'm running Chronicles of Riddick at a STUPID high Res with max graphics and it looks FANTASTIC.  So there you go.


I hope you like me and I fit in with your life.

Re: MADwETpYcIfZ

Getting my new bits and pieces soon. Pitty I didn't post sooner, I would have warned you well away from that first system 2na. Mine's better than that, and I'm upgrading. The problem is I bought a 20" widescreen running 1680X1050. So now everytime I upgrade, it's sooner, and has to be very expensive.

Proposed mothership construction:

Intel q6600 or E6850 (roughly $330 aus)
Gigabyte x38 mobo (roughly $350 aus)
2 GB of some form of ram capable of running at 1066 speed
Either an 8800GT or a Radeon HD370 (HD is slower in some aspects, but better and more quiet cooling)

Possibly going to need a new PSU and case, not sure yet.
