with dsl you should just be able to plug in the ethernet and it will automatically work itself out.

how are you liking vista? and what are your laptop specs?

i would say don't even think about chilling with 512 lol, prices are so low on ddr2 that it makes sense to just grab 2gb worth of ram, and there's a definite performance increase with vista from 1 to 2gb.

also nice price on that

yeah wayyy back when, when you had to use PC ram, 512mb was the bomb. now we got people running x64 bragging about 16gb+ and all that.....


i think i will wait. my laptop is maxed out, so maybe after i get some money ill get a better laptop with an amd, so i can have both an amd and intel lappy, and have one (amd) for gaming and one (intel) for school work and stuff like that.
