  1. # 1 GB PC3200 400 MHz DDR RAM (4 GB max.) That is the RAM that is currently in my computer. So what would you guys recommend I use to get the best performance boost. TY very much for the help btw guys.
  2. It looks like you are probably right. His website did not recommend any DDR2 memory. The ones it recommended were all DDR memory. http://www.crucial.com/store/listparts.aspx?model=Pavilion+a1520n Any and all info is welcome though. I only know enough about RAM to be dangerous.
  3. Isn't that RAM just DDR-400 like what I got though?
  4. I have been pondering upgrading my comp for a while now, just never have got around to doing it. I don't really do much gaming on my comp(I do pretty muchly all my gaming on my 360). The main thing I am trying to do is just increase the performance a bit. I figured the easiest way to do this would be to upgrade the RAM. The RAM in my comp is only DDR-400 and I only have 1GB. This was fine whenever I was running XP. Now that I am running Vista I figure I can get a pretty good performance boost from having bigger and faster RAM because of it's new cache techniques. Now here is the question I face. #1 I am not really sure which RAM I should go with. Also is it ok if I mix it in with my DDR-400 or do I need to take the DDR-400 and replace it with another DDR2. Here are the exact specs on my comp: http://www.geeks.com/details.asp?InvtId=A1520N&cm_mmc=Froogle-_-DesktopComputers-_-AMDAthlon/SempronComputers-_-A1520N
  5. My brother up at college is using Cox. MUCH better than what I have here(satellite).
  6. Last I heard on OLED(might have changed) was that they were unable to make them last long enough. Of course they may have fixed that problem by now. If you have any updates I would love to hear em.
  7. Here are some posts with opinions on Olevia: http://forums.xbox.com/9813930/ShowPost.aspx http://forums.xbox.com/10472623/ShowPost.aspx
  8. Not really sure...I have heard about a TV made using different colored lasers though. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laser_TV I have heard from many that Oleva is indeed a good brand.
  9. eek...Bose? What I have heard about them is they are WAY overpriced. You can get better quality of about 1/2 to a 1/4 of the price. www.avsforum.com has lots of post on this that goes into detail why you would not want to use Bose. Edit: Looks like dlewis beat me to it lol.
  10. Here are the top LCD brans IMO: Samsung, Panasonic, Sharp(Make sure it is an Aquos) The picture of them are absolutely outstanding. I usually lean toward Samsung although they are all about the same. I can vouch that you wont see any ghosting on the LCD's anymore. I game on mine all the time and I have never seen a single ghosting. Plasmas get a little better picture than LCD's(Darker Blacks mainly) they are still somewhat susceptible to burn-in. If you break them in properly though the burn-in should not be an issue. Although it is noteworthy that an LCD uses less electricity and has a longer life span than the Plasmas. The rear projections get a great picture as well. The only downside to them is you haft to change out the bulb every 3-5 years. Also they are much more bulky. As far as the lower end brand in LCD's go I would stick with Vizio, Westinghouse, and Olevia. I have heard good reviews on those three. More on Vizio and Westinghouse than Olevia. Also as dlewis stated I believe there is a new technology coming out this year. Odds are it will be pretty pricy for a while though. It could cause a drop in price in the other technologys though.
  11. Arg...I didn't ever think I would say this...But I would kill for those ping times. Ping statistics for Packets: Sent = 10, Received = 10, Lost = 0 (0% loss), Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds: Minimum = 1163ms, Maximum = 1708ms, Average = 1338ms
  12. You probably wouldn't get a very good one at radioshack.(Could be wrong, but I wouldn't think you would) Your best bet would be to go here --- http://wilsoncellular.com/Dealer.php and see if there is a dealer in your area. They sell every piece of equipment you could possibly need.
  13. That is more like it. A little low on the upload side, but that will probably get better once you get an antenna set up.
  14. www.3gstore.com will give you 15 days to try it out. If it doesn't help send it back.(ofcourse you will be out shipping still). I am guessing you wouldn't haft to send it back though. Or you can go to www.wilsoncellular.com and see if they have a dealer in your area.
  15. There is a way to check it, but since I don't have one yet I haven't had time to tinker and figure it out. I am sure the guys at these forums --> www.evdoforums.com could tell you. From the looks of your speed though I would be willing to bet it is just a matter of your signal is not high enough. Those forums also sell antennas so you should be able to get fixed up there.
  16. lol. With my lightning fast brain? About 10ms.
  17. How is your signal? If you don't have just have an "ok" signal then that could be causing your slower speeds. If this is the case a simple antenna that will hook up to the card will probably get you up to about 1-1.2mb. Your speeds are not normal though. EVDO is usually 1mb+.
  18. Try using this site ---> http://speedtest.net/ For some reason testmy doesn't seem to be reporting accurate EVDO speeds, because I have seen others have the same results as you. That speedtest.net should be fairly accurate though.
  19. So what are you going to put in the new comp you are buying? Curiosity always gets the best of me lol. Anyway good luck on selling that comp and welcome to the forums!
  20. 900ms...that would be nice. More like it averages 1300ms(+) and has pings going upward of 3000ms. This applies to the new bird as well.
  21. You can be the look out. If you see anything the ultra secret code word will be dear god we're gonna die run for your life. Remember now this is an ultra secret code.
  22. O there is no way the money in my bank account could come anywhere near close enough to pay for the therapy you guys are going to need. It would take millions. Although I don't think it is possible to really get over a loss so great...
  23. Brilliant!!! I can't believe I didn't think of it before!!! What about whenever I run out of TP though?
  24. If I don't return I just want you to know that......Shug doesn't really kick ass like his sig says. Also I want you to have the bag of Jolly Ranchers(whats left of them) on my desk.
