Re: Bottleneck?

Well thats a bummer, I've loved this computer. So think it's the cpu itself even though it's not maxed out playing games? What kind of framerates should I be expecting with the 1900xtx by upgrading? Well its a Gateway 845gm with an Intel 945 chipset. If I were to throw a Core2Duo in it would it auto...

Bottleneck?

Well since I got a little Christmas cash to play with I'm debating if I want to upgrade my video card. Right now I'm running a computer with a PentiumD at 3ghz with 4gb of ram. For day stuff it's more then quick enough but for some of the new games the framerate is starting to suffer a bit. Right no...

This stuff is amazing, I used it in my vehicle doors around the components.

Adhesive on one side and tin foil on the other so it'll probably help with the EMI too.

Re: RAID Questions

Well, I got bored yesterday evening and ended up seeing what I could find. As it turns out my motherboard has RAID capibility using the intel matrix manager. So I ended up installing the second hard drive and reformatting using striping. So I guess my question is would I get better performance using...

RAID Questions

I've never used RAID before but I'd like to set up a RAID 0 array. Right now I have a 320gb drive and a 250gb drive. How could I go about setting it up under Windows 7? Is a dedicated controller needed can I use the onboard chipset? (Intel 945G). Obviously I'd be limited by the 250gb drive for total...

Re: Will buy a beer for anybody who

No, no. I'm just a dumb business student, it was an offer from my old roommate who is a physics guy. He figured it out though so offer is void.

Re: Poll: Legalize Drugs?

News flash: Drugs are already widely available and cheap. I could score just about anything I wanted in a few minutes if I wanted to. Figure a ten-minute drive into the city of Poughkeepsie from where I am right now, and five minutes or so until somebody asks me what I need. Hey man, no need to be ...

Re: Poll: Legalize Drugs?

That's his decision. Not yours to judge or correct. Which is why I've never said anything to him about it. If he wants to waste years while hes still young, not getting out and living a life, fine. Still sucks for all the friends he's abandoned. I'm not okay with being the leach on society that a g...

Re: TV-out?

From what I found at Gateway, it should have an S-Video out: http://support.gateway.com/s/Manuals/Desktops/8510208.pdf (page 12) I appreciate you looking, but my machine only has the integrated VGA, not the separate card with Svideo. Trying to avoid having to buy a card, but looks like I might have...
