    I think i'm going to go without the daylight savings this year ;) .
  2. does anyone else have problems with firefox and yahoo mail? I am still experiencing some of the same issues with having to upload my information (pass, username) more than once and the format yahoo uses looking a bit messed up. anyway, i have been really busy mainter so i haven't gotten back to you about you're suggestion, i'm thinking about it, but am a little concerned about giving anybody, let alone someone with you're expertise, my computer. i would have to say there would have to be something in it for me other than postage, sorry if that doesn't work. ok, and what would you do with it anyway?
  3. time for a computer retirement party. . .so much for you, you once new piece of shit, Presario 5304 Cyrix686MX, with 60MB mem, 4GB hard disk, 15" bulk monitor, broke CD burner, cdROM, floppy drive, i'll do you the justice of massive delete and defrag, before i relegate you to the needy, or possibly my parents.
  4. or a little Claude Lemeuix/Darius Kasparitis sluice-foot.
  5. i ate out two nights in a row, that has to be some kind of record for me or something, mex yesterday (carnitas), ribs and chicken (i took the dark meats: wing, drum, and thigh), greens, beans, cornbread. it rocked, it aaalllllwwwwaaaayyyss rocks. pork, pork, and more pork, favorite animal i've ever eaten, hands down, every part is good.
  6. my problem is that i won't be able to afford another computer or monitor for another six years so i went with the dell which comes with a 19" LCD monitor which i upgraded to ultrasharp, i got the videocard that casek told me i didn't need (i think, now that's another issue, i wish they would make detailed specifications available on their site about what they put into these machines), extra memory and firewire too, all for about 900 including shipping. it's might not be half the computer, but i won't be buying another for another five years anyhow, so i was really being impractical trying to buy a fancy mobo which allows upgrading because in five years when i'm ready to upgrade, it will be time to re-up anyhow.
  7. yeah, i upped some of the options so it would work out better for gaming, that they threw in the monitor, that clinched it for me it will be nice to get rid of this small and hulking crt. like cowboy says though, there is a crapload of stuff installed that i'm going to want to delete so definately look forward to helping me out on that, software not being one of my strongpoints.
  8. d00d, should i get a dell? yeah, i did, what can i say, i'm just too poor, don't hate.
  9. Step 1: Choose a Processor AMD Athlon 64 FX55 San Diego 1GHz HT Socket 939 Processor Model ADAFX55BNBOX$660 (normally 810, saved 150 on combo with mobo) Step 2: Choose a Graphics Card ATI All-In-Wonder 2006 Edition 256MB DDR3 VIVO PCI Express x16 Video Card $179 Step 3: Choose a Motherboard MSI K8N Diamond Plus Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce4 SLI X16 ATX AMD Motherboard $179 Step 4: Choose Memory Patriot Signature Series 1GB (2 x 512MB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 400 (PC 3200) Unbuffered Dual Channel Kit System Memory Model $68 Step 5: Choose a Hard Drive We need lots of hard drive space for storing our games, videos, photos and music files. One of the best deals I’ve found is the Maxtor DiamondMax 10 6L300S0 – it gives you a whopping 300 GB. What’s more, its SATA enabled too. This goes for $129.99 at Newegg.com (an unbelievable price, by the way). Step 6: Choose a Case Antec TRUEPOWERII TPII-550 ATX12V 550W Power Supply $83.99 COOLER MASTER Centurion 532 RC-532-SKN1 Black Aluminum bezel, SECC chassis ATX Mid Tower Computer Case$45 Step 7: Choose a DVD Drive Last step is to choose a DVD drive. I’d reckon that a good DVD drive is the NEC ND-3520A drive. It’s not a writer – only a DVD-ROM. This unit sells at around $42. Well that comes in around 1500 after 30 in shipping and minus the mail in rebates($50) plus a cooling fan, what do you think, is this going to work, or am i going to have lots of (unsolvable) problems, is this too much computer for my needs, and does the decrease in graphics card hurt the gaming capabilities of the system?
  10. cool, thanks, i'm going to bed now, i'll check back in the morning.
  11. oops, double post, and i know enough i think, i've built from barebone before, and rebuilt a few times before, reformatted hard disks, added all types of cards, etc.
  12. yeah, i don't really know. i was thinking play a few games, web surfing, nothing really intense. i don't think liquid cooled is the way to go anymore but i'm ready to build something for about 1300 right now, keeping my old monitor. and i have lots of time right now to f around with this.
  13. lots more questions here. i'm about to shell out some dollars and have a few points of confusion, so i'm thinking this weekend isn't going to be the one. first, i'm going to buy a mobo with a raid controller for the option, but is it worth it to buy another hard disk as well, and if so what kind, sata 3.0 any good, or should i buy a graphics card with lots of memory so i can play videogames, which would be cool? also there are so many ram's out there, i'm taking y'alls advice and going amd, so that rules out DDR2, what is dual channel, and what is un-whatevered, and are these things important? also are there any pc build tutorials, because it's been awhile? are all the connectors included generally with the case, and mobo, or is there some stuff i'm going to have to buy. i'm thinking this thermal paste shit is going to be necessary for the processor, but what else has changed from ten years ago, is there anything else you can see me getting in trouble with, i'm liking those fast liquid cooled processors, are they worth the trouble?
  14. yeah, that's prolly the way i'll go. i just hate shelling out money to microsoft, it's only $89 bucks though. oh well, i guess i won't be buying anything today.
