  1. Indeed I have. And yes I am using a linksys modem. I went to that board and posted the issues, hopefully will see a reply sometime tonight
  2. Greetings all. Im currently subscribed to charters 3 mb/s high speed cable plan, but am frustrated with my results of speed. At this time, I am trying to deduce if the problem is on my end or theirs. I can run a speed test, and get a 500 kb/s download speed. Then run it again, and will be at 100 kb/s then run it again and be at 50/ kbs and so on and so on. Main problem is consistency. I recently wiped my hard drive, loaded up all drivers and such, so I know that I am virus free. Im too lazy to post exact stats atm, but I am running a fairly high end machine. I have both tcp optimizer and cable nut, but I have had no luck as far as my speeds go. (There is a decent chance I am using them incorrectly) So basically, I am going to listen to any advice here, and try everything possible, before I deem this something on there end and call (calling charter is probably the most painful experience in life, there customer service is horrible ) I am capable of getting decent speeds for cable internet, but the problem is that speed comes and goes, sometimes lasting for days, sometimes hours, sometimes, minutes. Anyways, thanks in advance, I'll do my best to post all info needed. Thanks
  3. Its funny, right as you posted that, i was finishing the last bite on some. And will do when I get it all I get my school check on the 5th of april, so that is when Im orderin'
  4. Thanks again everyone, after looking at budget, and realizing I can eat ramen fora week, I think I will go ahead and go with http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16819115003 for the processor http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16814130072 for the video card http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16813131073 for the mobo and either http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16820145034 or the fire stix for the ram. Im thinkin that sounds pretty solid, and should run anything I could want to throw at it,
  5. Thanks for the help so far. I have 2 184 pin gig sticks. So most likely have to update the ram? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16820145034 for example?
  6. Greetings all. Basically, to make a short story shorter, Im wanting to upgrade my pc. Im currently at @ 2.0 mhz amd, 2 gigs ram, 300 gh 7200 rpm hd, geforce 6800 gt 256k, with a Nvidia nf4 motherboard. Im currently wanting to keep everything but the Video card, motherboard, and processor. Im gonna list the 3 items I wanted to purchase and put together to build a beast machine, and here they are The three components I would like to purchase are http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16814130079 Seem to be a top card, thought putting this in my machine should help the cause http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16819103759 Seems like a solid processor. Sure be a decent upgrade from what I have now. Now, the motherboard is where I am unsure of. Getting the processor and video card are fairly straight forward, but I would love suggestions on a nice board to put them on. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16813131593 This is a board that I found that I liked. So there ya have it. That is what Im wanting to have as the core of my machine. Any good? Have better ideas? Any constructive advice would be great My brother just got his friends computer (he is a marine now) and he can play games like oblivion max settings and resolution with smooth as butter framerates. So Im basically trying to one up his parts a bit to make sure I can do the same. If you guys have a better build for a machine (processor, video card, motherboard only) that could knock my socks off, post your ideas. Though, I am working with a budget of 1200. So have at it, and thanks!
  7. Hey guys, Was having a hellavu time with my internet the last couple weeks. Im with charter, and was pretty unsatisfied with the speeds I was getting (about 45-60 kbs). I fortunately stumbled on to this website, spent an hour absorbin' what I could, and now Im getting :::.. Download Stats ..::: Download Connection is:: 4425 Kbps about 4.4 Mbps (tested with 5983 kB) Download Speed is:: 540 kB/s Tested From:: https://testmy.net/ (Server 1) Test Time:: 2007/01/31 - 4:19am Bottom Line:: 77X faster than 56K 1MB Download in 1.9 sec Tested from a 5983 kB file and took 11.078 seconds to complete Download Diagnosis:: Looks Great : -100 % faster than the average for host (charter.com) D-Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/stats/id-U7F30N9ZR User Agent:: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.2; WOW64; SV1) [!] Not the fastest around, but so much better than before, thanks again so much for all the wonderful tips and tricks!
