I've been looking around these forums for awhile, and I know now that you guys are very smart.
Anyway, here are a couple of quick questions-
1. I've been thinking of upgrading my comp (x800pro [and proud of it!Great card, just need to use the overdrive feature, doesn't void the warrenty, and get a the Omega drivers, they boasted my Aquamark3 by 9,000.] 2.8ghz 133mhz bus, 512kb L2, some sound card, 512mb Nanyu RAM, 18.5gb HD
)- In order
1. Get another HD, around 160gb, whats the cheapest one out there? I was thinking a Western Ditigal.
2. More RAM, I'm not into OCing.
3. An AMD 64 3200+
I'm thinking of gettting a laptop from Ibuypower.com Here
Its going to be for Flash and some gaming.
My friend has a Dell (don't laugh, I'm doing an essey on Big Name Computer companies) and its HD failed about a year ago. Its been making these weird grinding noises and when we go into the BIOS, it says HD not found, but the cables are connected. He says its a trojan or a virus, and I say it just crashed. His Mom went on the phone, and set about 3 hours on the phone with some guy from India. What can he do?
