Radeon HD 5570
Radeon HD 5670
Radeon HD 5550

Geforce 9500GP
Geforce GT240
Gefoce GT220

Thank you in advance.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Most price-worthy

You didn't list the prices, but performance-wise the 5670 is the best of the bunch. Next would be the GT 240.

Would also help to know what the main use will be.

i want to buy one wireless keyboard for my laptop ,and found outthis item http://www.kingsbuying.com/bluetooth-v3-0-61-key-wireless-keyboard-for-asus-google-nexus-7-2-black-silver.html is it reasonable at this price ?

Answer:does this keyboard be worthy of buying at this price ?

That keyboard will be on the small side since it's designed for a Nexus 7 which is a 7" tablet.  Since you wish to use the keyboard with your laptop, I would recommend a full-size keyboard.  Here's one that's slightly more expensive but also includes a Bluetooth mouse: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16823665007&cm_re=bluetooth_keyboard-_-23-665-007-_-Product

Well... I have sat here all day trying to get rid of a couple things that have decided to run on my computer, and not let ANYTHING touch them!! I have tried everything I know to kill them. Here's what I tried so far...

1. Ran "Pest patrol", "Spybot", and "Ad aware". They didn't find them, even though I can see clear as day they are running.

2. Attempted to shred and delete the files from the windows folder, and it tells me they are in use and cannot be removed. I then used two process killers to attempt to stop them from running to remove em', and they just keep re-installing themselves repeatedly!

3. I opened "Regedit.exe", and found them in my run folder. I remove them there also, and they just come right back for more!

4. Tried killing them all with HijackThis, and they keep coming back!!

THE FILE NAMES ARE (PMGNTS.EXE, GVWRT.EXE, and itroa.exe).

Answer:Is the Firewall COMODO Almost Worthy of the Commode?

Hello,What you are seeing is very common with Comodo Firewall as it includes HIPS (Host Intrusion Prevention System) that monitors the system for suspicious activities and report them. In the right hands it is very powerful security, but for non-savvy users it is troublesome and not worth it to use.Which OS are you using? If you are using 7 or 8.1 then the Windows Firewall is enough for everyday use.

i recently bought the upgrade disk for my comp...

previously i was running xp home edition but thought my comp could use something with 32 extra bits....

when i put the 64bit edition of vista in it tells me that the disk is unreadable....

nForce 680i SLI motherboard
2x2 gig OCZ SLI ram
500 gig maxtor hard drive
700W OCZ power supply
XFX 9800 GTX+ graphics card
intell core 2 quad 2.4GHz

any other info i'm sure i can tell you

Answer:What makes my system not 64bit worthy?

Don't quote me on this but I have heard that upgrading from XP to Vista is not a good thing, it is best to do a clean installation.

Now, it is also said that, for some reason, Vista doesn't like it when you install with 4GB's of Ram (again... hearsay).

Your rig is better than mine and I am Dual Booting with XP 32 + Vista x64 so I don't see why you can't.

hi there, I'm new to this forum. I've already posted one thread about how my computer won't boot, but so far I've had no response, oh well i'll wait.

Basically I want to know If my current setup, is good enough for gaming. this is my current setup:

Motherboard = Compaq Evo D500 (not sure the exact motherboard model)
CPU = Intel Pentium 4 1.8GHZ
Ram = 1024MB of PC-133MHZ SDRAM (512 MB in Dimm 1, 256 MB in Dimm 2, and 256 MB in Dimm 3)
Video Card = Nvidia Riva Tnt2 Model 64 32MB
soundcard = Creative sound blaster live
Hard drives = 2 western digital 40GB drives (not sure of RPM speeds), (I am also thinking of raiding them together with a ATA/100 PCI card, is this worth doing?)
Drives = Lite-on DVD-RW 16X duel layer Burner
PCI Cards = Nexxtec USB 2.0 PCI card
PSU = Stock 250W
other modifcations = I'm currently modifying stock "mini convertable" case, to hold a 120mm mains fan in the front of case. (wind tunnel pc)

If you guys could recommend any future upgrades, or see anything that could cause me problems, or think that I'm wasting my money on somthing that's not going to benifit me a hole lot, please let me know.

Answer:is this a worthy gaming system?, if not what do I need to upgrade?

unfortunately not. P4 1.8 GHz is kind of slow nowadays and i'm guessing it is the 478 running at 533 FSB. Try a new Athlon 64 socket 939 or the Socket 775 P4's. having 1 gig of RAM is good, but yours are 133 Mhz. Try running 1 gig of DDR at least 400 Mhz. for games, the video is the highest factor. Any 6800 or ATI X series is good for mid level cards, and the XT1800 or the 7800 are good high level cards. the 64 MB card you have is...sadly not up to par with games now. Lastly the PSU needs to be at least 400 watts. the rest seem alrite (DVD-RW and IDE hard drives)

My old i845PE based motherboard died, so I decided to replace it with a i915G based one, which still has the same 478 socket, ddr slots and IDE ports so i can use my old components. However, this has PCI-E rather than AGP, so i'm going to need a new graphics card. I was wondering what a pci-e equivalent would be? I only need the same sort of performance (its only a secondary pc the kids sometimes play games like Sims 2 which never stressed the 9700). Its just there arn't really any reviews which compare a 9700 to modern cards, so i dont know! Thanks. PS, from experience, i prefer ATI.

Answer:Worthy replacement for my old Radeon 9700pro

There are two choices...either an NVidia 6600GT (around £100) or a 7600GT (around £140).Look on the web though because you should be able to find either cheaper than those rough guideline prices.Performance wise the 6600GT is slightly better than a 9800xt card so around 50% faster than your 9700pro.The 7600GT is much faster still and will double the performance of your 9700pro at least......when used at high resolutions that is.the importeant thing is to bear in mind the 7600GT is easily the best mainstream choice for playing any forthcoming games.Incidentally what motherboard did you get?....I need to update my graphics card but like you have a socket 478 cpu......it might prove cheaper to change my own motherboard and use a pci express graphics card than upgrade to one of the silly priced AGP cards (EG Gainward 7800GS goes like hell editions).

Hi, Is it worthy to upgrade RAM from 2 GB to 4 or 6 or 8 GB? My x120e came with 2 GB and I am considering to upgrade the RAM. I am not planning to do any gamining. I will only use the x120e for browsing and lightly computing. Would I really notice an upgrade to RAM for browsing and lightly computing.? If so, what would you advise? Upgrading to 4 or 6 GB? Thanks for your advise.

Answer:Thinkpad x120e - is it worthy to upgrade RAM from 2 GB to 4 or 6 GB?

Hello,
 
Adding more memory to a computer will allow it to hold more information in RAM instead of having to access it from the slower (and probably more power-hungry) hard disk drive, and since it is quicker to access information stored in RAM than on a hard disk drive, you should see better system performance.  That said, how much better performance will depend upon what the computer is being used for.
 
One thing to keep in mind it that a 64-bit version of Microsoft Windows needs to be installed in order for the operating system to recognize more than 4GB of RAM.
 
While many people have upgraded their X120es to 8GB of RAM by installing two 4GB DDR3 SO-DIMMs without problem, this is not a configuration which is supported by Lenovo and they may ask you to remove the additional RAM and go back to a supported configuration before troubleshooting an issue or servicing the computer.

Hello everyone!

I have a PC that I built 2 years ago with Intel i7 2600K and a Z68 mobo.
I recently upgraded from Adobe Lightroom 3 to version 4. It is noticeably slower going from one image to the next. I see the loading status all the time. It is unbearable if I'm editing hundreds of images.
I wonder if I upgrade to the i7 3770K would be a worthy $300 upgrade as far as speed increase? This is assuming that I can use the same mobo since it's the same cpu socket type LGA 1155. Or do I have to upgrade the mobo to a Z77? (an additional $150 upgrade?)

If I do change the CPU or even the mobo, I can just use all the other components that I have, correct? Hopefully, I don't have to re-install the OS?

Hi. I'm not a computer novice. I have my A+ and Net+ certifications and I've been building and fixing computers for 10 years; this problem, however, is not something that I've been able to fix.

I was using Windows 7 Ultimate when I had an issue with Bitlord and it wouldn't load. I didn't change any port settings at the time and simply rebooted the program. This is the only relevant action I can refer to that may have been the catalyst to my current problem. I cannot download anything from the internet. If I search for the word "download" it takes me to this page (with firefox; the same thing happens with google chrome and IE8.):

Today, the price of gold sits around $1660/fine ounce, maybe Huawei should put their E173 and E220 drivers on wall st. The price per unit would surely surpass that of gold before the close of trade.
On the Vodacom website there are two downloads for the E220, a pc software for vodafone and a VMC update for the dashboard. I downloaded and installed the software for Vodafone onto the laptop, and thereafter dowloaded and updated the E220 with the VMCLite_E220_3_2_1_156_standard program.

Now, since the modem's dashboard could be updated, it would be safe to say that the modem was detected, right?

I work in a school district, which has a decent number of computers. As most districts, we're constantly re-imaging them. Since I got my hands on some new open source software which works great (Called FOG, linux based for the FOG server but primarily geared towards cloning Windows workstations), I've been imaging computers more and more to "reset" them instead of doing typical maintenance stuff, i.e. defrag, delete profiles, clear this, delete that, etc to get them back to how they were.

As a result, I've been setting up master images for each brand of computer we have. The thing is, I thought maybe there'd be more that would be viable for the images than I've included.

Typically my computers for the labs get the following:

Office 03
Office 07 converter
Flash 10
Reader 9
Quicktime
Java 6
IE7
Firefox
VLC

Is there any other software that would be a viable option to have as default on computers? I know there's programs like Audacity and whatnot, but typically labs aren't doing music editing.

Just figured I'd throw this question out there before I set up and finalize all of these images.

Note - These programs must be free.

Answer:What free software do you consider worthy of a master image for typical computers?

it really depends on whats being done.. id put on something like GIMP for image editing, you never know so i think Audacity would be something worth having on there. 7zip for compression? i have had to compress files into a zip before in a class for school. I like Foxit reader better then adobe reader, personal preference at school when i get bored i like to play with pivot ? something to think about..everyone gets bored and who doest wanna make stick animations ?

Adopting reliable attack methods and techniques borrowed from more evolved threat types, ransomware attained new levels of reach and damage in 2017. The following trends characterize the ransomware narrative in the past year:
Three global outbreaks showed the force of ransomware in making real-world impact, affecting corporate networks and bringing down critical services like hospitals, transportation, and traffic systems
Three million unique computers encountered ransomware; millions more saw downloader trojans, exploits, emails, websites and other components of the ransomware kill chain
New attack vectors, including compromised supply chain, exploits, phishing emails, and documents taking advantage of the DDE feature in Office were used to deliver ransomware
More than 120 new ransomware families, plus countless variants of established families and less prevalent ransomware caught by heuristic and generic detections, emerged from a thriving cybercriminal enterprise powered by ransomware-as-a-service

The trend towards increasingly sophisticated malware behavior, highlighted by the use of exploits and other attack vectors, makes older platforms so much more susceptible to ransomware attacks.

Its offered on many sites but the free version is from 2002, although easy enough for me to download as its only 2mb. i am not sure if the trial version of outpost, which is now the only one now offered on the official homepage, expires or not after the trial, or if it keeps working but does not let you update? I have installed the free 2002 version that some sites still state is good enough, its no longer supported yet seems to work ok and gives me all the info on connections etc. Anyone have an opinion if i will be ok using this version or if i should try and get hold of the latest trial version instead

I have been asking for occasional help while planning and ordering my new rig. I have yet another need for assistance.

It seems I accidentally ordered only 512 megs of RAM for an Asus AN8-E. I meant to order two. This is what the invoice states:

512MB PC3200 400MHz DDR Certified SPD Memory Upgrade for DDR400 Motherboards

I had to modify my order and I think somehow they downgraded my ram upgrade. They rep did not speak English so well. I noticed to late so the only thing I can do is wait for delivery. I ordered two 512 sticks hoping for dual channel performance.

In the meantime I have two sticks of RAM from my old rig. The best I can identify them at the moment is the sticker located on the back side of the ram. They are marked as Atlas brand PC3200 DDR 400. Is that the same specs as the ram listed above? Or is it a lesser spec that will cost me performance?

Thanks in advance for any info.
 

Answer:Help Dual Ram - Is This Ram Dual Channel Worthy

If I was to get a rep that spoke poor English I'd request another or call back

It's impossible to tell what memory you have from the little info you have posted

Memory even of the same Brand & type can be made from different chips supporting different timings.
It's not uncommon for Memory manufactures to use different chips for the same Brand & model Memory sticks
When ever you plan on using memory in a Dual Channel configuration it's always best to purchase your memory in pairs at the same time to insure you get two sticks of the same exact stuff or buy a Dual Channel kit which is two sticks of memory tested to run at identical speeds and tested for compatibility

DDR memory isn't what supports Dual Channel it's the MOBO & Memory Controller

You can look at each of your sticks of Memory if they are made of identical chips the marking's & identifing #'s will match

You can install each stick separatly then run Everest to check the SPD & or rated timmings you can also run Everest's benchmarks

Just remember when running different memory if your PC will allow you to do so the Memory will only run as fast as the slowest stick

When I moved from the Amiga to the PC in late '94 I spent quite a few on that PC. Just the 16MB of RAM cost me the equivalent of $700. So I took a look at one of the local PC chains for a pre-made PC with about the same price.

Not adjusted for inflation I could buy today: Core i7 3770K, 16GB RAM, GeForce 660 Ti, 120GB SSD + 2TB HDD, IPS 1080p monitor, decent gaming keyboard and mouse.

Adjusted for inflation:Core i7 3930K, 16GB RAM, GeForce 680, 120GB SSD + 2TB HDD, two IPS monitors, decent gaming keyboard and mouse.​
Of course if I chose the components myself I'd choose differently, but then, I'd never spend that kind of money on a PC these days.

Question: Q6600 price

Like many people I had been waiting for Intel's July 22 price cuts before buying this CPU for my new computer. However, though the price was cut to $266 USD by Intel, most retailers are still selling the CPU for much more than this because of the very high demand. In some cases the price has gone back up after the initial price cut. Newegg, for example, lowered the price to $299 USD but has now raised it to $375 USD. My local computer shop is selling it for $328 CDN and I've seen it online for around $300 CDN.

I've heard something similar has occurred with other parts in the past and I'm wondering if anybody can accurately predict what might happen to the price of this CPU in the near future. Do you think it will come down near the $266 mark within a few days, or do you think it will hold at this price for months, or maybe even rise because of the huge demand? I'm anxiously waiting to get a new computer and at $300-330 the Q6600 still fits into my budget, but if it is a matter of waiting a couple days to save $30-50 then I could stand to wait. Thoughts?

i was thinking of buying a new graphic card and i was looking at two

the X800 xl and the 6600GT

i was looking at the 6600gt becuase i want to save money, is there a GIANT difference between these two cards or is the x800 the one to go

Answer:price or perfomance

I let you decide if it worth it or not and just give you the graphs






Throw out low and high to get a good average and we find that pretty much dead on you getting a average of around 15 more fps with the x800XL over the 6600GT. This makes the x800XL a significant better card then the 6600GT. Is it worth the extra money for that performance increase is up to you.

It is important to note that the x800xl of corse does better on games ATI good at but even in the games nvidia is usually better at the x800XL still does better then geforce 6600GT.

-Operating system is Windows 7 Home Premium, 64 Bit
-It has a webcam, HDMI, and bluetooth 4.0
-Rated 5.9 on a scale of 1.0-7.9 (via Windows Experience Index)

Since I have no pictures to add I will add:

-Screen is perfectly clean (just cleaned it myself)

The Computer runs just fine I just want a desktop. Also I wanted to add that I want to know what the price is BRAND NEW, considering that I might be able to get a new computer or at least all new parts through waranty. If you could add any insight it would be appreciated. Thanks Everyone.

What should one pay for a used monitor? We have been offered a Dell N20 Metro M20w but haven't agreed on a price.
 

Answer:How do you price a used monitor?

I would look around the internet and sites such as eBay or Craigs List to see what the same model is selling for. Used PC hardware doesn't really keep its value and used hardware sells at whatever similar models sell for, so also check what similar models sell for.

It doesn't appear that the info you provided is correct, you should verify the model number of the monitor. Actually it appears to be maybe two models. The Metro M20W is a 20" LCD that sold around $300 new in 2006, but a new 20" monitor now sell for $100 brand new. And Metro isn't even a good brand, so maybe like $25.

Question: Sale Price

Morning All,

I am considering selling my system to upgrade to the new 2011 socket. Could someone please give me a rough estimate of my currents system's value and the best place to sell it online? I do not want to use ebay as the percentage they take is far to high!

System Specs:

i7 2600
1Tb Seagate Barracuda HD
Asus HD6950 2Gb
8Gb Kingston Genisis 1600MHz RAM
DVD-RW
Asus P8P76 Pro Rev 3 Motherboard
Windows 7 Professional
Antec 300 Case
600W Modular PSU (unsure of make of the top of my head)

If anyone could give me a rough price I would be grateful. I know how much it would be new but the second hand market I have no idea!

Thanks for your time.

Dan
 

Answer:Sale Price

See what a comparable machine is selling for on eBay and advertise it on your local CraigsList.

Question: 2nd Laptop price

I have a laptop here and someone is interested to buy it.
Specs: Intel Atom 1.6ghz cpu, 1gigs ram, 160gig harddrive,

10.2" screen. no dvdrom. Uses external dvdrom (not included)
and its about 6-7 months old.
Now I was just wondering if someone could give me an idea of how much money I can ask for this laptop
Posted via Mobile Device
 

Answer:2nd Laptop price

I dont know the 2nd hand market in South Africa - so its difficult to give a price
To be honest in the UK there are some very good bargins and good specs in the £350
so as a guide maybe a 3rd of the price of a new one..

Whats the make and model of the PC ?
Is this a full PC or a netbook ?

Answer:price check on my pc

Look up the average cost for the components and go from there. No one will pay the full retail price for all of your components so lower the price 20% or so. It is really a gaming computer and would limit the people that would be interested in it. More horsepower than the average spreadsheet cruncher would ever use.

Question: Price Check

I am a Canadian Citizen, so you would have to multiply 1.15 for an American Price.

Before reading, please consider the following:
Parts are more expensive in Canada, regardless of exchange rate
I checked All over the net for the CHEAPEST prices at a retail store


CPU: P4 3.2 Ghz HT LGA 775- $284
MOBO: Asus P5P800 - $117
Ram: Kingston 512MB DDR400 - $95
HDD: WD 80GB S-ATA 7200 RPM- $83
Case: Crappy Antec 1600 with 300 w- $65 (know I got ripped for this)
Case fan: Stealth- $16

Total= That totals 668 dollars approximately.
Then mouse and keyboard costs up to over 700

Remember that was CAD 668,

I want to know if I got ripped off, or if those were killer prices,
and how long this PC shall last me.

I am in the first years of hi skool. Game on hl2, and cs at least 7 times every week, do photoshop, and application using more than gaming.

Thanks.

Answer:Price Check

how long should it last?
well that depends on what you're going to use it for now and in future

also, what is the video card?

I would say the system is pretty descent, and prices are pretty good too

I am looking to upgrade my PC for gaming, but I am on a short budget right now of only 250$.

What are the best possible upgrades I can get for my current specs, and are there any websites that give great deals on computer parts?

My PC specs:

OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit
System Model: ET1831
BIOS: Default System Bios
Processor: Pentium(R) Dual-Core CPU E5400 @ 2.70 GHZ (2 CPUs), ~2.7GHZ
Memory: 4096MB RAM
Page file: 1692 MB used, 6496 available
DirectX Version: DirectX 11
Display: ATI Radeon HD 4350
Thanks!
 

Answer:Best possible upgrades for price?

In your price range,you are probably looking at a better power supply
and a better video card.
Maybe an nvidia 460 series.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&DEPA=0&Order=BESTMATCH&Description=460+nvidia&x=15&y=39
Just make sure you check the length of the card and make sure
it will fit in your case.
That should leave enough for a power supply.
Don't get a cheap power supply.
There is a quad core processor available for that board,but it's about
$250 by itself and your dual isn't too bad.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115060
Still want a better power supply before you go that route.
This should be a cpu compatability list for the motherboard
in your computer.
