  1. Sure you could buy a $300+ video card but can you really tell the difference between 30 frames per sec or 170 fps? X800 XT PE ran at 62 fps on "Battlefield Vietnam" 1600X1200 4x AA / 8x AF X800 XT PE ran at 172 fps on "Battlefield Vietnam" 1024X768 no AA /no AF Infomation from http://graphics.tomshardware.com/graphic/20041004/vga_charts-11.html
  2. I would also like to say that on my slow (730mhz) I see a big difference between the new progress bar and no progress bar. My computer stays at 100% usage. NO LOAD BAR 4072 Kbps about 4.1 Mbps (tested with 2992 kB) 5229 Kbps about 5.2 Mbps (tested with 2992 kB) 4286 Kbps about 4.3 Mbps (tested with 5983 kB) NEW LOAD BAR 3394 Kbps about 3.4 Mbps (tested with 2992 kB) 3685 Kbps about 3.7 Mbps (tested with 2992 kB) 2713 Kbps about 2.7 Mbps (tested with 2992 kB)
  3. I looked in the testmy.net "host" database starband.net Download Average = 488 Kbps :: 60 KB/sec starband.net Upload Average = 60 Kbps :: 7 KB/s Reviews: "I ordered the business package, which was 1.5 down/760 UP. I have been getting about 1100 up and 1200-1500 down." - AT $125 PER MONTH "Speeds have hovered around 450/90. Not amazing, but livable. With no other broadband options available, this is the best way to ride" - AT $69 PER MONTH "The fastest connection (for up) on their site that I could find is 256kbps." You asked how others compare: I have adelphia 4000/430 (or so) I dont know the price because I have a cable TV & cable internet deal at less then $60 a month I think...
  4. I dont like the fact that the new progress bar won't let me use another window during testing. Every refresh of the progress bar makes it go to the top of my screen.
  5. Can norton antivirus be to blame for this? Im changing a lot of the "computer basics" by replacing a motherboard.
  6. is there any site that can gather this infomation?
  7. Making the rounds... My upload is undisputable. testmy.net .............................result: 4808/437 dslreports.com .......................result: 5478/423 pcpitstop.com ........................result: 5285/455 speakeasy.net............(local)...result: 2971/432 speakeasy.net..(contanental)..result: 1950/433 cnet.com ...............................result: 1904 (down only) toast.net ................................result: 1850 (down only) benetle.com.( US to Norway)..result: 847 (down only) alaide.com....(US to France)...result: 615/433
  8. If you have a computer with top spects and are not woried about problems, maybe. I cant find exactly what the program does to the cpu other then "decreases temps" "However a cheap PC with low-quality components could possible be crashed by CpuIdle" Q: When I'm running CpuIdle my system seems to freeze irregularly? A: If CpuIdle this can have the following reason: either your power supply or mainboard voltage regulation module (VRM) could be insufficient for CpuIdle. Since the CPU constantly goes to sleep and wakes up again, this can be a high strain for poor power supplies/ mainboards. Please check the following entry as well.
  9. I was getting 4800 - 5100 Kbps saturday but today im toping off at 4200 Kbps. My average prior to the upgrade testing was 2800/256 :::..

  11. FIBER OPTICS is the technology of using bursts of light as a medium of transfering data compared to packets being used in home networks or pulses of eletricty being used in phone lines. "The technology in which communication signals in the form of modulated light beams are transmitted over a glass fiber transmission medium. Fiber optic technology offers high bandwidth, small space needs and protection from electromagnetic interference, eavesdropping and radioactivity." There is a lot of science and math in the use of fiber opticts, I'll try to talk plainly. OC3 (Optical Carrier Level 3, fiber optic, 2016 Voice Circuits at 155.520Mbps OC12 ".................................................................................." at 622.080Mbps OC-48 ".................................................................................." at (2.488Gbps). These are used in business aplications but, The largest fiber optics are only used to bridge the flow of data across contenents or oceans as below: http://www.cybergeography.org/atlas/williamscommunications_large.gif http://www.cybergeography.org/atlas/alcatel_large.gif
  12. You said any kind of problem, I got "PC Chips m825g" and I got a strange problem... I have boot up working fine all through DOS, half way through loading windows a blue screen comes up saying STOP, followed by stuff like but not exactly: "0x00000000" "0x0000003004", saying "UNACCESSABLE BOOTUP DEVICE" , after many failed attemps a page displayed showing what .DLL's the computer was accessing. It then stoped and displayed the same blue screen. Ok, the computer reads off the hardrive a while and stops, could this be because old boards cant read large hard-drives? In BIOS, the largest hard-drive option was 100MB, thats MegaByte! Self detect found my 20200MB Hard Drive lol. Or is is something wrong with my eMechines hardrive? If you look up this kind of motherboard you will find many problems.
  13. Wow, they have top specs! Their runing on OC-48 at 2.488 Gbps? Is that 2,488,000Kbps for all 400+ users?
  14. Where are the servers for Testmy.net? [shadow=blue,left]I like this site![/shadow]
  15. My results page is not comming up every other time.
  16. Both my up and download tests are recorded in the "download" catagory. :::.. Upload Stats ..::: Connection is:: 434 Kbps about 0.4 Mbps (tested with 579 KB) Upload Speed is:: 53 KB/s Tested From:: http://www.testmy.net/ Test Time:: Wed Feb 23 15:29:07 PST 2005 Bottom Line:: 8X faster than 56K 1MB upload in 19.32 sec Diagnosis: Awesome! 20% + : 47.62 % faster than the average for host (adelphia.net) Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/id-V0EKHYB98 Copy the validation link and search it.

  17. On another note, My upload times are recorded is the database under the download catagory. Thus today I appear to have download times consistantly 4000bps or 400bps, (which are my upload tests)
  18. I have Norton 2003 running the latest virus definitions. The interesting thing is that all these test happened on the same day but yet there was an hour between the first and last tests of these speeds. I have had this norton running on 2 computers for 2 years and never got something like this. Let me restate that the redicusly high scores were taken on a 730Mhz cpu when I had major lag lasting 10 seconds.
  19. I dont have a software firewall, just a router. This is my 5th result in these kind of numbers. O'well. :::..

  20. When my 730Mhz computer laged today I got scores off the chart. I know its a glich and its only 4 to 10 times faster then my average score, but hey, its fun to think about. 22 Feb 2005 Download 30887 12160-KB 6301146231 adelphia.net 8JPBE9L6S 22 Feb 2005 Download 29602 12160-KB 6301146231 adelphia.net I8H19PL3R 22 Feb 2005 Download 25244 12160-KB 6301146231 adelphia.net 8HQ3A9LRJ
