  1. To all my old friends here hello it has Ben a long time, The question I have is about a new pc I built i have 3 wd re4 500 in raid0 short stroked to 125 each as my os/game/app drive and I have a seagate 1tb 7200k.12 as my storage drive My question is I want to first make a small partition on the seagate drive for the page file and then partition the rest for storage and backups. What should I do about the page file on the os drive? Should I disable it? Or leave vary small one? and should I just let windows manage the page file on the different drive or should I manually set the min/max and if so what should I set it to? Old rule of thumb 1.5-2x the amount of ram I have installed? Pc specs a AMD 1090t oc at 4.1ghz Asus crosshair IV 890fx 8 gigs of G.skill 1600 ddr3 3x wd500 re4 short stroked to 125 each raid0 Seagate 1tb 7200k.12 Antec 750 tp new blue Zakman 9700 Any help would be welcomed

  14. i do have a spare 40 gig ide drive so i pluged that in and tryed to install vista to it everything went well till i tryed to boot to it
  15. i got my new mobo and cpu yesterday install both of them and when i try to install a os i start hitiing some speed bumps. at first when i tried to install vista i would get a can not rind a cdd/dvd device driver to fix that i switched dvd drives it fixed that. but then i hit a diffrent speed bump when i after i choose what disk i want to install to i get an error at the end saying that vista could not update the boot configration. so i try to reinstall now and i get a your system hardware may not support booting to this drive please check bios to see if the controler is enabled. i try to select a drive and windows says it can not find a volume that meets its critera So i say ok back to xp but i am hiting even more speed bumps when i get to the screen to choose what drive i would like i install to i try my maxtor 320 gig setup says that windows needs to install to a partiton, so i try to install to the outher disk it installs to that disk but whne i try to boot to it i get a windows is missing a file error hal.something file and when i install xp to the 320 maxtor drive i get a disk read error when i try to boot to it mobo is a gigabyte GA-MA770-DS3P cpu is 9600 phonom be first drive is a ide 320 gig maxtor 2nd drive is a 250 gig wd sata drive could it be that my both my harddrives just went bad
  16. will you be using this computer to do any gaming? dvd drive http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16827136152 harddrive http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822136151 video card http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121294 power supply http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817341011 ram http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231223 mobo http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130216 cpu http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115202 i left the case up to you after tax and shipping to my house it comes out to $1525.44 and the computer would last a long time
  17. well what would be the budget for this build that is the main tid bit we would need to suggest some parts
  18. i got the one i picked for 200 i picked it becuse i wanted 1980x1080 res and since it was a xmas gift i had to keep it at 200. some people say 21.5 is a little small for 1980x1080 but i think that is a fine size for that res i just cant wait till some one comes and starts talking about the cpu that i got and its infamos tlb bug but it will hold me over till amd comes out with there Phenom II and then they drop the price of them at a later time
  19. so my pc decided to poop out on it self and it came down to eather the cpu or the mobo that made it poop out, instead of finding out witch one i dicided to up get a new quad core, i bought a 9600 Phenom 2.3Ghz and a Gigabyte GA-MA770-DS3P mobo combo they cost me 202.56 with tax and shipping but the thing that made me mad was on xmas i had just orderd a ASUS VH222H Black 21.5 monitor and the next day my pc died
