  1. so i got a couple of 2nd hand servers off ebay recently, however they only come with a dual core sittng in a single socket. i have looked around for a second cpu for the other socket, but it seems to be that every one that sells them do not sell the hsf. do you know where i can pick up a a socket 603 hsf from for a dell 2650/2850 4U server?

    Upgrade Mini-ITX Build

    I'm saying that installing 8gb of ram on a 32 bit bitch aint going to see over the 4gb point, minus video card ram due to poor eye site in the language it talks.

    Upgrade Mini-ITX Build

    4gb max- only running 32 bit win 7 (dream spark) I'll have a look at the parts, any other recommendations? And yeah sorry - only a 450W PSU - http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_p...oducts_id=21390
  4. Hi, I brought Crysis 3 on pre-order through origin long before the specs where published - now i need to upgrade in order to play the game. As you can see i am running a Mini-ITX build (SilverStone SG06), and need to upgrade to a DX11 card. I am running a 550W PSU (max voltage for this form factor). I plan on keeping mg 64GB SSD, and my 1TB HDD. I am looking at a upgrade (please recommend): 4GB Ram All in one motherboard (EG, W-LAN built in) DX11 Video Card Dual core w/ HT ivy bridge - or is better to get a quad core straight? My i3 is quite happy in Dual w/ HT A lighter pair of head phones then the Sirus SGH-4000 (Stereo Headphones perfable) Upgrade budget up to $700
  5. I was meaning computer readable data
  6. I installed the 500w, and got a 64gb ssd off ebay, playing steam games like a king now.

    When do to many drivers start to cause an issue?

    Thanks for the feedback Master - thanks for the edit, i picked up a cheap DSE 4 port hub a few days ago.
  8. I work in a phone shop, and its much quicker, and easy to plug the phone into a laptop to charge it then digging around in the bottom of the cupboard for a wall charger. The side effect is that Windows 7 ent has to install a driver for each and every phone that connects to the machine (i am up to USB Modem 76), when will to many mobile drivers become an issue? Some phones might connect once every few months, others like ZTE (Telstra) phones need a driver for its self, and all its bits, like modem, sd card, etc.
  9. I suspect 100GB/si would not be possible, as vinyl is a type of plastic, and has no ability to store magnatic data
  10. Sounds like a good way for ASIO / CIA to send read once files? Whats the strange noise i hear from next door - oh don't worry, Boris is just playing his new record from his handler.
  11. Cool - looks like a LP has no pits & lands - so it would not be possible to use it in the same manner as you would a CD
  12. I found an interesting image on wikipedia's DVD page - http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=....svg&page=1 It got me thinking - if you could press a vinal LP - how much data could you store on it? They are double sided 22 min for playback
  13. I was just going off details my TAFE teacher told me on Monday, the SSD's tend to bottle neck based on the CPU speed, and you would experience load jitters - i'll have to inform them BULL SHIT!
  14. My question is, would a SSD be stable in this sort of build? Your only looking at a 2.23 dual core celeron?
  15. Sweet - i'll see if PCCG can order them, as sadly all my local PC stores are now closed.
