Not to mention with the first option if you loose EITHER drive you loose all your data.
  2. Congrats $ilk and all the best to your new wife. She is a very attractive woman. How'd she end up with you. Just kidding. Congrats to you both.
  3. Actually currently I am running a 64 bit version of Linux (Kubuntu) and a 64 bit version of windows on my box. I play quite a few games and have had no problems running any of the titles I've tested on either OS
  4. Powersupply is a Jantech silent. Not sure which core the cpu has but its probably the older of the two considering the price I got it for. Meh I have a work around that seems to work for the moment. I think it's graphics card related and luckily that was bought from a company so I'm in discussions with them re replacing/swapping it for another.
  5. Sounds like your upgrade is going better than mine. I put a DFI NF4-DAGF motherboard AMD 64 3800 Nvidia 6800 into my machine about the same time you did your upgrade. Problem is now that my system performance is unstable. I can run 3Dmark on it and get a FPS in one of the graphics tests of somewhere in the mid 200's and then I can run the same test again at another time and I get about 5-7 FPS. I've tried drivers, chipsset drivers, direct x and about 3 different OS's and all the same. Friend on another forum has suggested that my 6800 is not getting enough power and to ensure the power connector is correctly connected and my PSU is ok. Problem is my Graphics card doesn't have a connection for its own power (is that strange for a PCIe x 16 card) and my PSU is a brand new 450W monster so I'm stumped.
  6. Call me an old romantic but I always hoped O'Neill and Carter would get it together. I know they were both pretty career orientated but I really liked the episode were Jack was caught in a time loop. He handed his notice in and then gave Karter a big wet one.
  7. Utilities I use: Avast Anti virus - pretty good free anti virus. Microsoft Anti spyware - works well. Other than that I have a hardware firewall and I rarely/if ever get problems with my PC.
  8. Yea I use avast too (windows and linux) it's a nice anti virus. The fact that it is free is an added bonus.
  9. Congrats Cruise, a little late I know but congrats anyway.
  10. Yea probably true. Wouldn't be surprised if you see him running for office in the future. He's most likely just trying to get his name/face recognised by people so that when he is on a voting balot people will recognise it then too.
  11. Had a look down your running apps list and did a comparison for any I didn't recognise. nothing is flagged as spyware/virus so you should be ok.
  12. Cool SC I use Suse too. I recently upgraded to 10 (64 bit version) myself. I use cedega to play some of my games on Linux but I keep a Win xp (64 bit) dual boot for UC and to keep the wife happy (she doesn't like linux)
  13. quote:Originally posted by Klaitu: Yeah, I've tried the flight engineer thing, and I think I discovered the problem. The fighter was perfectly equipped and loaded and repaired, it was just at 0% charge.. and since the game time travels reeeeeeely slooooooooowly, it took forever to charge up. (It was at 90% before it turned green again) I still haven't been able to get the shuttle to deploy mining drones.. it just lands and then RTB's wiithout deploying anything at all. I also can't figure out how to get my OC's out of my shuttles while they are landed. And while I'm here, how the heck do I target and fire an Orbit to Surface missile? It's been a while but let me give this a go.. mining drones Put a pilot/marine/someone in shuttle and make sure drone is on board. Zoom to planet and set a "deploy mining drone" waypoint. I used to find that if you drop a "contine to next waypoint" one first it helped but that may no longer be the case... Make sure you have selected the correct shuttle number when creating your wp. Launch your shuttle. That should do that one. OC's launch Same as the mining drone above, however select deploy OC x (where x is the number of the loaded OC) OTS missile Make sure OTS is on board. Go to tacops and zoom to your target area. Click the OTS button and you will get a reticle. Place it over the target and left click. note CC needs to be in close planet proxitity for this to work. Sit back and watch the fireworks. It's been two years since I've played a BC/UC game and about the same since I've been here so E&OE ok?
  14. OK I stand (well sit) corrected. Guess GB hardware has come down a bit since I've been out of the loop.
  15. LOL. Nice to see though. I use Linux at home these days (although I keep a Windows dual boot for my wife and games that don't run under Linux) much prefere to boot to Linux though.

  17. quote:Originally posted by LostInSpace: The mb does have a Network built in 10/100 but my card is 10/100/1000 and a sound chip but I've turned them off in the bios Some how I doubt you either have a 1gb router or modem(depending on internet connection) and besides your net connection aint going to be 1GB either so the 1000 on that 10/100/1000 is not doing you any favours and is just taking up a PCI slot.
  18. Sounds like you've got a new dart board SC !! (just joking all the best with it Lost) Bummed now about the 3800 compared to the dual core 3800. But then again considering I got my 3800 at Ôé¼200 less then it retails for I aint complaining to much. Just waiting on my darn video card to arrive now and then I can put my new rig together. Sceptical is not the word considering parts were bought from Ebay. That being said I've bought bits from ebay before and not had problems. Just hope my luck holds out.
  19. Yea I used to do the "buy the best hardware" thing but I found in the end it's not worth it. Especially now. TBH there is no game I run that pushes my current system but I wanted to get a PCIe board and 939 chip so I was happy to get hardware that was only a very minor increase on my current hardware. The "top of the range" stuff just aint worth the money imho. And besides I have a wife and 4 kids to feed I can't aford to be spending mad money on new kit every year. Nuts to that idea.
  20. I understand where your coming from Lost, I upgraded on a budget this Xmas too. I decided it was time to get a Nvidia card to replace my Ati, (sick of linux/ati problems) While I was at it I decided it best to change my mbd too. I had a socket 754 board with AGP slot and a AMD 64 3200. So I bought a new MBD with a 939 socket and a PCIe slot, and I got a PCIe nvidia 6800 and a amd 64 3800. All in all not much of an upgrade but at least if I want to move again all I've got to do is drop in a new cpu and, eventually, a new vid card too.

Oh okay, I was thinking it might have had something to do with the video systen.naw, now if you where to upgraded your video card to something like a 6800GT they need extra power, mine used the same plug type as the one you would use for harddrives, CD-Rom drives etc. Yea got stuck when I bought a 6800 recently and then realised I hadn't got a spare power connector. Got it sorted now though.

  23. Nice setup. Not a fan of Ati myself however (got burned recently with my last card - not a good expierence, plus Ati don't play nicely with Linux) EDIT: dang forgot about this part. I think you'll find the reason most boards don't support both AGP and PCIe slots is the extra work required to ensure there is no conflict between the two buses. ISA and PCI were easier to implement side by side - very different architectures but there is something shared by agp/PCIe that causes putting them on a board harder to do.
