Q: Please Help me to purchase new PC

I am from Bilaspur (C.G.). INDIA I have a HCL PC HCL ezeebee that I purchased about 3 year ago. Now I am planning to purchase a new PC.
What I will do with this PC
... various OS (Linux) Testing in Virtual Machines(MS Virtual PC, Virtual Box etc)
... .NET and Web application development
... Audio Video and Photoshop related work. (Graphic Designing)

I will run mostly Visual Studio 2008, Adobe CS3, SQL Server, Windows Vista Business and Linux. But this list may increase.
I have Pinnacle PCTV Stereo card for watching TV on my existing HCL PC. Will it work in new Motherboard.
I am crazy downloader of Music, Software, Movies, Pictures. I think I need more space on HDD.

I would like to mention that I am a Computer Geek. I spend my whole day on computer. I need Fast and Reliable PC which can work minimum 24hr or more continuously without any problem.

As I mention above I will also work on graphic designing therefore I need a monitor with CRT quality display. I like sharpe images of LCD monitors but I also like color range and image quality of CRT monitor. Is there any LCD monitor available which can produce CRT like colors.

Or

Is there any CRT monitor which do not create strain while reading text on it for long time.

Generally I purchase computer related products from DIGITAL AGE at bilaspur.They are good. But they have no knowledge of computers related words. Once they said to plug LAN cable into Phone port. That's why I need your suggestion.

Which computer should I buy?

Should I but Branded PC or Assembled?
Some People said that Branded PCs are better. Will I get high configuration branded pc with custom choices?

I have created this configuration for my PC
*.*.*.*.*.*.*.*
Intel Quad Core Processor,
4 GB RAM
1 TB hard drive
19 or 21 inch flat Monitor

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

I am building a computer for my first time and after choosing a motherboard, have no idea what RAM to buy. I know that I want 8 gigs of RAM, and the motherboard has slots for 4 RAM cards, but I don't know how to figure out how many pins should be on the RAM that I buy. The motherboard that I chose is an MSI ATX DDR3 2133 Motherboard 970. I would prefer a RAM card from Corsair, but thats just personal preference, not necessity. Help anyone?

Also, in case you need more info about my motherboard, I got it at this URL: http://www.amazon.com/MSI-DDR3-Moth..._n_feature_keywords_two_browse-bin:6159420011
 

A:What RAM should I purchase?

As described in the motherboard description - Memory: 4x DDR3-2133(OC)/ 1866/ 1600/ 1333/ 1066 DIMM Slots, Dual Channel, Max Capacity of 32GB.

This means your motherboard takes DDR3 memory. When an OC follows a number it means that in order for you to run 2133 memory you must overclock, I.e. add more voltage to get it to function at this speed. This is something you don't have to concern yourself with.

Before we move forward why this motherboard? Here are 2 questions that will help you in the process of building a PC:

1. What do you want your system to do?
2. What is your budget?

Hi Guys,

My Budget is ?40-50, and was just really after some opinions, or whether anybody as any alternatives which are possibly better?

Also just wondering if i can go to 1866MHz as i can get some which fits in my budget

Crucial Ballistix 8Gb 1866MHz

Thanks for any help in advance

A:Help with new RAM purchase

The only specs for RAM that you want to be careful to match are:
DDR3
1.5v
Unbuffered
non-ECC
Although I must mention that you should not expect to see a real world noticeable increase in performance by jumping up from 1333 to 1600 (or even 1866). Running faster RAM can be important in overclocking in order to get a stable overclock.
Alternately, you could play with overclocking your current RAM to 1600 and save the money. Some 1333 sticks (but not all) can handle it.

I need to purchase a new FP Shooter and just can't seem to decide between "Battlefield 1942" and "VietCong". I've read all the reviews and as usual they leave me with no information.

I am concerned that both of these titles will be either too much or too buggy for my PC. Is there anyone out there with any experience with these titles?

My PC as a 32mb GeForce 2 video card. Which was more than enough for 'Unreal Tournament 2003', MOHAA, Red Faction II and "Delta Force: Black Hawk Down".

Since it is still a long time before 'Halo' or 'Half Life2' or 'Doom 3' will be released I need another FPS to tide me over until then. Are there any other FPS's out there that I am overlooking?

Thanks.

I am considering buying/installing an SSD, probably 240gb. I currently have a very well functioning machine with a 1tb HD and all my OS and software is installed on that HD. I am using Windows 7, with all the latest updates installed. I have never used an SSD or installed one so I have some questions:
1. Is 240gb enough or would 128gb be sufficient? I believe I only want Windows 7 (likely upgrade to Windows 8 when released) on the SSD and leave my current HD alone with all my software as it is currently installed.
2. What/where can I find a step by step for installing the SSD and directing the OS to read everything else from the current HD.
3. I usually use the Hibernate feature and only completely power down every few days. Would that still be acceptable?
4. I assume I would have to purchase a new copy of the OS therefore I may wait until Windows 8 is released before making the change.
Thanks

A:what to purchase...

Get the 8800GTS 320mb (I think this was what you're referring to).

This would give you the highest performance boost IMO. Twin 7600GT just wouldn't compete, unless you overclock using LN2, and even that, its debatable.

...a hardware firewall for an office network. We have about 15 computers connected through a DSL modem plugged into a switch. I was wondering what exactly "unlimited nodes" stands for on firewalls such as our old sonic wall? Will this firewall protect the amount of computers we have? http://www.zipzoomfly.com/jsp/ProductDetail.jsp?ProductCode=251800
http://www.netgear.com/Products/VPNandSSL/WiredVPNFirewallRouters/FVS124G.aspx?detail=Specifications
 

A:Looking to purchase...

"Unlimited nodes" means exactly that - the firewall will work with any number of hosts behind it. This is opposed to products that will work with only X amount of computers at a time.

As for which device to get.. This depends on what you want that firewall to do and how much traffic it should handle.

PS
I really doubt that you would have functional internet with lots of computers plugged into a DSL modem. Are you sure that this "DSL modem" thing does not already include a router and therefore also a firewall?

Ok so I am in need of some new RAM, currently I have 2x2GB of DDR2 800MHz Corsair Gaming Memory totaling 4GB, but one of the RAM sticks is bad and doesn't work. And I don't want to spend $95 on a 2GB RAM stick. So I have $90 left that I had gotten on my birthday, and was wondering what is the best, highest amount of DDR2 RAM I could buy. I want a lot of DDR2 RAM, but not only do I want a lot but I want it to be good quality RAM that will last a long time, and has a fast speed like 800MHz or higher for $90 or less.

A:New RAM Purchase Help

Welcome,
Dont really have an answer to your question, but have some advice. If you are not going to replace all the ram at once, be careful with the purchase. Make sure that all the sticks are identical, especially the frequency. Many, who replace, ram, buy all that will be used at the same time.

BTW a belated happy birthday.

Hello all, i'm planning on purchasing a new computer for christmas from an online store that i feel is fairly reputable. i'm just not sure what type of processor to shoot for though. i currently have a 1.3 ghz Intel Celeron from gateway that i bought off my sister not too long ago. This system is fairly outdated that i know, and i am wondering if I should go with a quad or dual core intel that is 1.8ghz or am i better off with an intel celeron D 3.6ghz. from what i am hearing the dual core is (2) 1.8 ghz cores, so in essence a 2.6 ghz right? on one hand i think that the 3.6ghz would be pretty damn fast, and yet i read articles that would lead me to believe the 1.8 ghz dual core would be faster. i plan on using my computer for normal internet browsing as well as some gaming. i play some mmorpg's like guild wars and plan on getting into playing some half life and gears of war. which of these two processors would be best for a gaming system. These are the two that i am looking at here.

Intel Core 2 Duo 800 / 1066Mhz FSB
or
Intel Celeron D365 3.6ghz Lga775 533fsb

which is the best for gaming?
 

A:New Purchase, what to buy

two cores does NOT. i repeat. NOT mean twice the power. it simply splits the load between two processors. it makes it a hell of a lot faster even at a slower gigahertz speed.

i just want to clear that up so there are no misconceptions there. that's a key thing.

if you want game and play something like the half life series or gears of war, you're going to want a fairly hefty processor. not to mention a good graphics card.

the processors you'll want to look at are the Intel E6750 Core 2 duo, and hte Intel Q6600 quad core. you can even look up some benchmarks to show you how they perform as compared to other chips here:
http://www23.tomshardware.com/cpu_2007.html

for the rest of the system, make sure you have a quality power supply, at least 2 gigs of RAM from a good manufacturer, and a graphics chip that was very recently introduced.

in terms of power supplies, i suggest the Antec Earthwatts 500watt, the Antec NeoHE 500watt, or an Enermax Liberty power supply. those are very powerful for the price, and are certified to give at least 80% efficiency if not better. so you'll get vast amounts of power, and you'll save on your electricity bill.

for the RAM, get some from Crucial, Mushkin, Corsair, G. Skill, or OCZ technologies. those are the top brands in the business. or at least make sure it comes with it. and get at least 2 gigs worth.

for the graphics chip, i recommend at least an 8800gt or better for gaming. or if you're into ATI, go with th... Read more

I am going to get a CD re-writer for back-ups. My computer place stocks Liteon 40x12x48 with Nero Software.

Have never used a burner before and was wondering if this is an OK brand. I looked it up on the Internet and it seems quite popular. I only want it for basic stuff. I don't really want to go elsewhere as this place has looked after the computer very well since I got it.

Just thought I would check out the views of this forum.
Thanks

A:Purchase of CD-R/RW

The Lite-On is an excellent burner for the money. Lite-On has been good about their firmware updates. The 40X burner you mentioned was released without Mt Rainier support and with P-CAV recording mode. They added both Mt Rainier and true CAV recording through firmware. You don’t have to know what all that means. Just go to their site and get their latest firmware and you will have the fastest 40x burner on the market.

I 'm going to buy a new computer, $400 is my limit. "Tigerdirect" has several that looks like they would fit my needs.
Systemax Ascent KMA3500 ($399 + &19.95 shipping)
ADM Athlon 64 X2 4400+ 2.30GHz
160GB SATA 7200 HD
Memory DDR2 2GB
GeForce 6100 GPU
DVDRW
350 Watt Power Supply
Operating System: "Windows Vista Business"
Startup OS: "Windows XP Pro"
I'm leaning toward this one because most of my software is old and may not play on Vista, and I like XP it has done me no wrong. Besides I'm 84 years old and I don't want to learn any new systems.
WS Office97, Lotus 123, and others. I am not in position to replace my software with the latest editions.

The other is:
Compaq Presario SR5710Y (Refurbished) ($299 + $19.95 Shipping)

250GB SATA 7200 HD

The Vista is a drawback, but this looks like a great buy.

Any suggestions , comments or pertinent information on these two machines , or others in my price range?.
Has anyone any info. on machines like the Systemax with 2 OS?

Ok so I am looking to purchasing my first NAS and I am having trouble trying to understand what I should purchase based on my needs. Here is what I am looking for:

-HDD indicator for each drive
-Gigabit Ethernet
-Hot swappable
-Compatible with OS X and linux
-Capable of showing up as a Network drive for everyone to access

Most that I have researched involve a web interface to set up and can only be access through there such as QNAP. Any chance that there are any that don't involve the web to constantly access? I plan to have like 8TB in the nas.

Thanks in advance!
 

A:NAS purchase need help

I think they pretty much all use a browser to access settings, but its jut by local I.P. address, nothing Internet involved unless you're coming at it from the WAN side, then you need a NAS with web-access.

NAS drives are usually tucked out of the way and rarely looked at, better for the NAS to email you periodically about it condition. Gigabit is important but so is the underlying power of the NAS itself. Cheap NAS drives with gigabit ethernet can still be slow--usually the more expensive they are, the faster and even more robust ones have a second gigabit port as a failsafe.

Don't know about hot swappable. Mine are in RAID 1 and they'lll email me if there's a problem (hopefully).
Compatibility, some would have thier own format like RiserFS, and I think all mine are now just good old NTFS so there is no need for translation at all with Windows so I'm not sure about standardization when it comes to sharing with those three main OS flavors.
All NAS drives show up on a network once properly configured, with their own I.P. address and name...that's the N in NAS.

For the family we have three laptops and a desktop - and I intend to buy one or two more (netbooks perhaps) in about six months.

A:Update and purchase

What software are you referring to? Usually, if you have to pay for a licence, that activation is necessary to receive updates for the product, and a separate licence is required for each machine. It's hard to tell without all the info.

Hello,

I am looking to get around 1024 IPs such that I can move across Data Centers/providers and still keep those IPs. The setup I have needs static Ips as customers increase.
I have contacted ARIN but they say we must already be using 4096 IPs (from our current provider) before ARIN can directly give us IPs if we are not multi-homed. if we are multi-homed the requirement to be met is 510 IPs.
We are currently using up around 200 IPs, so obviously we will have to get lot more IPs before we can go to ARIN.
I am interested in finding out a work around to this requirement and get hold of at least 500 / 1024 IPs which I can move across DC and providers.
If anyone knows or can guide me on this problem, it will be great!

regards,
kataxl
 

A:Purchase IP from ARIN

Well you mentioned this -

if we are multi-homed the requirement to be met is 510 IPs.Click to expand...

How close is your organization to meeting these requirements?

An organization is multi-homed if it receives full-time connectivity from more than one ISP and has one or more routing prefixes announced by at least two of its upstream ISPs.Click to expand...

Just wondering because I don't think I have ever seen an instance where ARIN goes outside their policies...

Just an FYI they may ask you for utilization numbers as well.

Hi, I wish to buy a new laptop with SDD only - no HDD. I want a 15 inch laptop with dedicated graphics card and i7 processor. HP does not have a laptop with just an SDD, they all seem to have HDD or SDD & HDD. Can I get the HDD replaced before purchase or can I customise my laptop in any way. Thanks, David.

Hi all,

I'm trying to purchase Windows XP Pro SP2 OEM version. Now this oem one is about $187, http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applicatio...ab=11&NoMapp=0

The retail one is like 300+, I don't really need any stuff other than the XP cd + cdkey, but the price difference is so big, is there any difference between OEM and normal retail version (the one comes with the box)?

Thanks

I have a Toshiba Satellite P105 laptop, ca 2006, running XP3. It works, but there are problems. I would like to purchase and install Windows7. Where is a good place to buy (online is good). I looked at NewEgg, but they are offering a supplier's version, and it looks like you need special software to install. I'm not too techy, as you can see. What I want is a CD that I stick in my drive and say go. I assume this machine will handle W7. I'm also assuming it would require the 32-bit version. Right?

A:Purchase and install W7

Welcome to SevenForums ah100,
You should run this on your lappy to see if it's a good fit. I can say W7 should but for what you'll pay for the OS you may find it just better to upgrade the whole lappy. I use a Intel i3 HP with W7 64 bit and for something similar discounted pricing starts in the high 300's.

Hello. Just asking here as I trust the folks here. Not wanting to turn this into a battle, just want an opinion.
Wife is starting a 3 yr Phd in nursing, online. (at home) I'm going to buy her a new laptop and have decided on a i7 processor. Just unsure if it really needs to be dual or quad. Just need the speed for getting between apps. Will not be gaming and so-forth. Next question, which machine then to get? Doesn't need to be touch screen either. Really only interested in better keyboard and battery life. I bought her this little Toshiba Sattelite with i3 processor 3 yrs ago for her BSN and is still alive. Just fast and reliable. Thank you DM

A:laptop purchase with i7

Unlikely you would need the power of an i7. An upper level i5 is very strong.

If the i7 is in your budget range, go ahead on.

Get a quad core. I'm not sure off hand if there are dual-core i5s anyway.

If at all possible, get one with an SSD (solid state drive). She'll appreciate it every operating moment, whereas she might never appreciate an i7.

Most laptops will have only one hard drive, so presumably you'd get one with maybe a 250 or 500 GB SSD. If you buy one that has two hard drives, you'd likely have Windows on the SSD and use the standard hard drive for storage.

I'd say the better way to go would be to get a machine with one hard drive--an SSD, and then use an external hard drive for backup and/or more storage if needed.

You can always get an add-on keyboard to bypass the laptop's keyboard.

Battery life: read reviews for info on that. The harder you work the machine, the lower the battery life, but there have been a lot of improvements in that area in the last few years.

As for specific recommendations, I can't make any as I don't use laptops. The usual suspects would be Dell, HP, Lenovo, and maybe Toshiba. Maybe Asus? I'd avoid Acer due to horror stories about customer service. I wouldn't expect stellar customer service for any of them--just hope you don't need to use it.

Find a few prospective machines in your price range and post links to them so we can have a look.

Here's some i5 laptops with SSD:
