I checked the email I am using and it seems fine and there is nothing from here in my junk or spam folders?
What do you mean by: "u need to subtract 3.5GB with the memory of the GPU and thats how much RAM will be used"
do you mean that if you have 4 GB of ram and your GPU uses .5 GB then you are using 3 GB? (3.5-.5=3)
Regardless, I thought that it was only 3 and not 3.5 GB of ram that xp32 uses so I might as well get 2 pairs of 2x1GB modules.
What is the best way to set up for back up? I use 1 internal and 1 external myself. but what is the best way? would it be to have a second internal that you ghost the main HDD from? It would seem better than using a patition?
Is RAID the way to go? (I need to study up on it) for backing up or is standard ok. RAID is good to make the seperate HDD"s act as one right.
anyway, thanks again for the suggestions, I can't wait to build something I wished I had so it is good practice and a good thing to have someone that wants the best (or better than most)
