  1. Just tried out the new Release Candidate. Works flawlessly. Thanks for the fantastic new CCleaner, MrG. Keep up the great work!
  2. I like this first feature; CCleaner is one step closer to being a portable app! Fantastic work MrG, as always.

    Did You Know

    Tru dat. Only a matter of time before they come out with Microsoft Employee trading cards. Sad. And 9 different variations of an operating system is an atrocity. Confuse the hell out of the consumer; what an excellent business approach. I agree with you guys: one main version of the OS is plenty sufficient. If MS wants to market versions of Windows with additional features separately, why not just sell those individual features as downloadable add-ons to the main OS? Not only would that be easier for the consumers, but it would be cheaper for Microsoft too, since they wouldn't hav

    Old skoolin it. That's just how I roll. @ MrG: Thanks again for all the time you put into the way cool update!

    Forum update

    Whoa, this is pretty cool. With the addition of "friends" and "comments" and all of that schtuff, it kinda feels like MySpace... except this actually looks nice and works!
  6. Both boards listed are good boards. In the more expensive board, you are basically paying for the NVIDIA North Bridge (the cheaper board uses an Intel North Bridge). If SLI is extremely important to you, I would probably go with the more expensive board, because of the better North Bridge. But, the board with the Intel North Bridge is still a good board, for far less money. Not to mention, it has a couple more SATA II ports to boot. Just a note (a little off topic, but I thought I'd throw my two cents in here): while Intel may be leading the CPU market by a small (very small)
  7. Hey Lebpride, Looks like a lovely system indeed. I can vouch for your mobo, as I use the non-SLI version of that board in almost all of the computers I have built for others. ASUS mobos in general are great because they run cool and quiet and have very full-featured BIOS'. Your CPU is good, but I do have a question: do you intend to do any overclocking? If not, I would recommend getting the low-power version of that CPU, since right now it costs the same as the high-powered version. If you don't overclock your CPU, the lower-power version will run just as fast, but it will co
  8. I've gotta agree with Andavari: I'm pretty skeptical on this one. I mean seriously, how many times have you guys seen "proven" all-natural weightloss solutions in the form of a pill? Or what about all of the lotions that make a bald person grow a full head of hair, or a person with acne instantly have clear skin? Those are tall enough orders in themselves, and rarely do they have any effect whatsoever. And now someone claims to have discovered a molecule that reverses aging? I would very highly doubt it. Frankly, I have a feeling that the limits of this "drug" will be found soon enou
  9. Is the new project another freeware application? If so, PLEASE take your time! I think that most of the other CCleaner forum users would agree with me that they would much rather see a stable freeware application released a few months late than a buggy commercial application released "on time." I know that CCleaner is a lot of work, and MrG deserves a break just like anyone else! So thank you MrG for all of the hard work you put into CCleaner, and thank you for creating even more great software releases for us. ( which will hopefully be freeware )

    New Drive

    Hey res, SATA drive installations are as easy as pie (which is presumably very easy...). Like you said, you pretty much just plug in the power and data cables and fire it up. A few things to note, since this is your first time with a SATA drive: 1. Make sure the mobo supports SATA! Make sure there are SATA inputs on the board (if you don't know what one looks like, I can post a picture for you). 2. If the drive you buy is listed as OEM, instead of Retail, you will most likely have to provide your own SATA data cable and hard drive screws, since all you will receive is the driv

    I don't use Linux, although I did put Ubuntu Linux on my friend's computer. One thing I noticed is that Linux does not use the same types of file systems as those used by Windows (i.e. FAT16, FAT32, NTFS, etc.). So most likely, Windows doesn't treat your hard drive as a formatted drive, since it isn't formatted with a file system supported by Windows. However, since Windows does realize you have a drive, it will still show up in Device Manager. Essentially, Windows realizes you have a hard drive plugged into the computer, but it just assumes it is a blank, unformatted, unpartitioned dri
  12. @ Stephen: That is pretty much the order that I build my systems in. Although, depending what type of CPU heatsink/fan you use, you may have to install that onto the mobo before you put your mobo into the case. For example, on my PC, I didn't use the stock AMD heatsink/fan, and since the one I used had it's own backplate, I had to put the CPU and cooler onto the motherboard before I put it into my case. And as far as your drives go, the order doesn't really make a difference (unless the drive installation order affects how you route your wires). I personally don't test the BIOS righ
  13. Oops! Sorry about that; I knew what it was, I just typed the wrong thing. But yeah, the reason it is slower is because it has 4 pixel pipelines disabled (which is also the reason it runs cooler and therefore only takes up one slot). Still, not a bad card. I've used Sapphire cards a few times. I did have one that I bought go bad after a short while, but the other couple that I've used had no problems. They were all Radeon x1000 series cards as well. If you spend a little more, you could get the 512 MB version of the Radeon x1950XT. I've got a Radeon x1900XT w/ 512 MBs of GDDR3, and
  14. Here are a few cards that I found Stephen: ~ High End ~ Sapphire Radeon x1950XT - This one is the fastest, but it takes up two slots; I'm not sure if that makes a difference to you, but I thought I should mention it ATI Radeon x1950XT - This one is a little bit slower, a little less expensive, and it only takes up one slot ~ Mid Range ~ ATI Radeon x1650PRO - This one's got 512 MBs of GDDR2, and a pretty decent core, although significantly slower than the x1900 series ASUS Radeon x1650XT - This one is the slowest, but not by a very big margin; not to mention, it only costs $1
  15. Right now Nvidia's DX10 card runs in the $500-$600 range, so if you do want DX10 capabilities, you'll be better off waiting a few months for ATI's card to come out. The competition should bring down the price on both company's cards. But something to keep in mind, DX10 isn't even really in use right now (other than by Windows Vista), so if you buy a DX9c card, you'll still be just fine. Also, I've heard (and don't quote me on this) that DX10 runtimes won't even be made for Windows XP, so if you want to use a DX10 card to it's full potential, you'll be forced to upgrade to Vista.
