Q: Specs I need, give me specs. Opinion Sollicitation for work PC...

Which Intel P4 Processor and what storage options to use?

Hello everyone. I need to spec out a new testing PC for work, so I'm asking for some opinions. The role this thing will play is a VMware test machine. I will be creating VMware images to run application tests, break/fix, troubleshooting, etc. The operating systems on the images will likely be Server 2003 and XP. So I was thinking of 2 gigs memory, but that may be too conservative. The help I really need is with the CPU and storage. I obviously want a multi core/hyperthreaded CPU, but which one? Hot swapapble RAID would be nice, but what level, and do I need a stand-alone RAID controller or can I use the mobo's?

Thanks all, in advance.

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.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

The Xeon Line of CPU's usally do very well in a server like setup. Alot of the time you can get the dual CPU motherboards. If you perfer though maybe one of the new Intel Dual Cores will run well, although im not sure, most servers I know of run dual Xeon's.

As for storage, if you have the money, get SCSI contolers and RAID SCSI drives. They are alot quicker.

And 2GB of RAM seems fine.

hi guys,
i need an opinion on this GPU specs.


A:Need an opinion on this GPU specs

That is an HD 4850. It is a decent mid-ranged card, comparable to the nVidia GTS 250, and should be able to run almost any current game at high settings, when run at lower resolutions. Is that what you are looking for? I was not really sure by your question.

For a start, it would be great to know what you will be using your computer mainly for. Personally, I would go for the AMD one. Straight away. But if you let us know what you will be mainly using it for then we could look into it a bit more for you.

As my post says I need the specs of both drives, paticularly the type of termination (active, etc). (I am definately NOT a SCSI savvy person)

Heres my problem I have a proprietary graphics computer that uses standard SCSI hard drives up to about 340mb for saving images. It is compatible with most Quantum LPS/Prodrive and Conner drives, especially the 120mb and 270mb versions.
Anyway I got a large number of IBM WDS3160's due to the lack of the latter and they do not work properly.

With the ibm drives I have problems with line noise and detection.

What is the difference (electronically) between an IBM WDS-3160 and a Conner 30100 drive? Is there any way I can get the IBM drive to function similarly to a Conner 30100?

Please note that I am only using one drive in the system.

Thanx for any help

A:Need IBM WDS-3160 specs and Conner cp30100 specs major trouble

I believe I've found a difference between the two drives, it seems that the conner unit automatically enables SCSI parity and the ibm drive makes no mention of it.
Do any of you think this could be the issue? If so how would I enable parity on the ibm drive?

I don't know if I'm even wording this question correctly but I think you guys will get my meaning hopefully.

My current MB (cheapo ASRock GEPro-M2) is:
IDE1: ATA 133 / Ultra DMA Mode 6
IDE2: ATA 133 / Ultra DMA Mode 6

I am about to purchase a new HD (this one hopefully) which is listed as ATA 100.

Does my new HD have to be ATA 133 or is it backwards compatible like RAM?

My current HD (Samsung Spinpoint P Series 80GB IDE ATA133) is about to give up the ghost, it's doing a scandisk on me sometimes twice a day (BT killed it I think). I'm going to keep the beater for BT only and use the new one for my system.

Thanks for advice in advance,

A:Incredibly slow work computer with seemingly normal specs

I have some basic "shotgun" suggestions.

Run run a slow optimize with MyDefrag.

Check Device Manager, click "show hidden devices" and uninstall all flagged devices.

Check Event Viewer and look for errors under "Application" and "System"

run "chkdsk /f"

Take a hard look at your processes. One, you might be infected. Two, anything that has "update" in it is probably unnecessary. Google updater, Adobe updater, Java updater, HPUpdater, all of that is worthless crap.

Take a look at your Services. Turn off "Error Reporting" and "Help & Support" which are on by default and do absolutely nothing for you other than use up system resources.

What's the AV software ? It might have a problem, scanning every little thing you do, has an error, reports the errors, tries the scan again, etc... Is it bloated AV software, like Norton ? Is there more than one installed ? Many dummies think that having Spybot, Ad-Aware and Pest Patrol installed will make their computer extra, EXTRA safe, when instead it slows it to a crawl, unless the AV softwares are conflicting in which case it doesn't work at all.

Remove as much unnecessary installed software via Add/Remove. Also, with this in mind, use lighter freeware (like Foxit) rather than bloated proprietary software like ADOBE (crap!) Reader.

Grab your IT Tech by the scruff of his neck in one hand and his pocket protector with the other, and drag him into your cubicle and make him optimize your machine. If he can't, or refuses then beat him with his slide-rule, give him both a wedgie and a noogie before sending him back home to his mother's basement. Then find another IT Tech.

Too many people assume that the IT guy is only there to fix black & white problems. If it's not "broken" it must be good. There's a lot of grey in between those two points, and the world is just chock-full of IT guys looking to make money sitting in the air conditioning. If your IT person is not enthusiastically interested in maximizing your computer experiences (and therefore your productivity), there are 10 recent college grads looking for an entry level position doing that person's job waiting just outside the door with resume's in hand.

There were too many numbers when you reported your RAM, and I have a minor bout of micro-narcolepsy. Is it 2 Mbytes, or what ? Increasing RAM is always a good idea. XP can see up to a maximum of 3.5 Mbyte, but in order to get the RAM to run in dual channel you have to think about certain things, like matching speeds (DDR) and sizes. Think the safest thing to do is try to get 2 X 2 Gbytes of RAM and just let the excess 500 Mbytes go to waste. Also, check what speed the RAM is vs. what you motherboard can run. If the M/B can handle DDR 400 and you've only got PC2700 (DDR 333) then there's an opportunity to get a slight tweak.

Check your BIOS and make sure some goober hasn't messed with the settings so that they are running slower than they have to. The last computer I fixed had the FSB set to 100 Mhz when it could have been running at 200. Video speeds should be checked too, and tweaked to their max. Don't try to OC. Too much time for not enough benefit.

There. That should keep you busy for a while.

I have been working with apacer ddr2 800 mhz for awhile without any problems. I just wanted to have something faster so i bought a 4GB kit consisting of 2x 2GB corsair dominator that are suppost to work at 1066mhz at 5-6-6-18. But when i try setting it in bios to 1066 it shows me 1067.If i try that speed my latency jumps above the posted spec to 5-7-7-23. Are there any suggestions to what i should do?

A:Corsair ddr2 dominator 1066mhz won't work at the posted specs on my asus m3a79-t

what happens if you set the timings to auto? it all depends on the motherboard really... and since you were using ddr2 800 before, i would set the timings to auto and see what each module reads using CPU-Z. also, have you tried just setting it to 1065... just for kicks?

That's pretty good as far as the specs go, but the price seems high for RAM that's 667mhz, and a 256mb video card.

A:Help with the specs of my next PC

I just did a calculation of your PSU needs and you're at about 300w or so. I think you'll need a better PSU than a 350, otherwise you'll be working it pretty hard. MINIMUM you should get is a 380, but you should consider a 450w I'd say, especially if you ever plan to upgrade anthing or add another HDD for example.

But good choice for looking at the Antec PSUs. They are trustworthy. Oh, and I love that case you are looking at too.

I don't know enough about Intel based systems, so can't help you there. Hopefully someone comes along soon. cheers!

The hardware is top notch, in the states I would charge about the same including labor so yes it's a great deal. One suggestion get as much cooling as you can the P4 Prescott’s get very hot as does the Northbridge, and memory, typical temps in my P4 3.2E are around 50c to 64c and system temps are around 24c to 27c and this is a socket 478 with 5 case fans (3 in 2 out), the LGA's get even hotter.

Yeah, I think so:

The system is leaps and bounds above the requirements for the game which are as follows:

* Microsoft® Windows® XP SP2 / Vista
* PC with 1 GHz equivalent or higher processor
* 256 MB of system RAM for Windows XP SP2 / 512 MB Vista
* 14 GB available hard disk space
* 32x speed or faster DVD-ROM drive
* 32 MB DirectX 9 compatible video card required
* Sound card, speakers or headphones required for audio
* Microsoft Mouse or compatible pointing device
* 56.6 Kbps or better modem for online play

Build looks fine. The Mid-ATX case is fine and what most people use, barely anyone needs the extra room, mostly drive bays, of a full ATX case. The i7 may be a bit faster for gaming but the i5=3570k does pretty much as well in most games from what I've seen. If you want to invest a bit more money then upping the video card to the 670 or 680 may give you more gains.

Also, you could have just posted this to one of you original threads to keep proper thread flow.

A:which of these specs to go with please

-The specs are almost identical for both computers with the exception of the Graphics Card.
-I would not worry about upgrading the graphics on the first one if you don't plan to play games.
-320GB will probably not be enough space if you plan on saving lots of high resolution pictures and/or graphics (if it is for professional use).
-The Novatech is going to have a smaller case, if this makes any difference to you.

I would say go for the Novatech for the lesser price (and because I'm a Nvidia fan boy )

So is $930 your max budget? Well you could save a little by not getting a CDburner ,as you already have a DVDburner listed. If you want to be playing games, you might want to go for a better graphics card, so maybe goto a 3000 athlon chip rather than the 3200 if you cant increase the amount you can spend.

Cant really help more, without knowing what your max budget is, and what you will be doing with the machine (games playing/just browsing net/etc)

How can I determine the specs on his current drive so he can purchase a second drive to match it as close as possible. I know I could open the tower and look at the drive, but I'm asking is there a way to view the info with some built in feature with XP?

Hi everybody. OK, stop booing or I'll send Marion my Predator after you. Here's my problem...... one of my problems. I am trying to fill in all my system specs. I have used, with some success, the tutorial here on SF and been able to fill in some specs. Others, I knew and was able to fill in myself. Others I have been able to fill in from the manual I received from Acer (not very helpful). I still can't find the information regarding the motherboard, PSU and card. I have tried all the above methods as well as Googleling for the specs on this specific Acer. I also went to the Acer home page and tried to get more info (waste of time). Does anyone have any suggestions (insert joke here) where else I could check for this info?

Hiya pal

The specs that you are trying to fill in aren't normally required for a laptop, as the name and model is usually sufficient. But this is your MB PGY02.001 Laptop Motherboard
Your case is not necessary as it's a laptop. And you don't really have a PSU (power supply unit) you have a power adapter which is more than often 19V

What you do is find out who made the PC (Dell, HP, Gateway, etc.) or if it is custom built.
Then go to either the website of the maker (Dell) and look up the model of the PC (Inspiron 5100), or in the case of a custom built, find out what Motherboard they used (ASUS A8kxxxx), go to the makers website look up the Mobo, and find its specs.

Case: A-Top Gladiator 450W ATX Mid Tower, $50Click to expand...

my advice is to get a name brand case, such as antec, thermaltake, or raidmax. stick to one of said brands when choosing your case and power supply, making sure you get 480 watts or better.

Processor: AMD Athlon 64 4000+ Socket 939, $470Click to expand...

if you truly need that extra power, that's your call. however, an a64 3400 or up would still be a great cpu, and would cost you much less. make sure the one you buy is a 90nm process and utilizes a san deigo or winchester core. stay away from newcastles.

Video Card: eVGA Geforce 6800GT 256 MB GDDR3 PCI Express x16, $310Click to expand...

i's stick to a card made by msi, gigabyte, or asus. if you go with an sli motherboard, get a card with said feature.

Motherboard: ASUS A8N-SLI Deluxe Socket 939 ATX (includes audio and LAN), $110Click to expand...

'tis a solid choice. if you are going to be buying another identical video card in the near future, get an sli motherboard and video card. otherwise, get the non-sli version of that board. of course, is you don't have an sli capable board there is no need for an sli capable video card. also, ensure your choice has ncq support for harddrives.

Hard Drive: Seagate 7200 rpm 300 GB Serial ATA150, $200Click to expand...

get a maxtor diamondmax 10 with ncq support, as they are superior to any other models on the market at this time.

Speakers: Logitech 32 Watts 2.1, $35Click to expand...

okay for gaming, but you will be dissapointed if you like to blast music (like myself)

sata is even easier than ide, on account of the lack of jumpers.

I?m shopping for a new laptop. Very like Aspire V3-372-34W8, but I need specification for its i3-6157U CPU. I?ve asked Intel. They replied they sell those CPUs in bulk quantities, the chips come without a thermal solution (heatsink), therefore they won?t tell me the specification of the chip. Logic, huh? See this discussion: What?s the frequencies of that CPU (Processor Base, Graphics Base, Graphics Max)?What?s the GPU, is it Iris 550?Has that chip 64MB eDRAM / L4 cache?Does it support Intel Virtualization Technology (VT-x)? Intel Virtualization Technology for Directed I/O (VT-d)? Intel VT-x with Extended Page Tables (EPT)? Thanks in advance.

A friend of mine has just bought himself a second hand computer from one of those computer shows, and unfortunately the guy that he bought it off did not know what hardware was installed in it..

is there a program around that he can run in it that will give him a printout of all the hardware that is on the machine ?? such as the type of motherboard, the CPU speed, the type of CD-Rom, the type of video card and all the other bits and pieces that is in there..

Ok, I'm going to buy a new computer and am going to customly make it. Screw Dell and CompUSA and Gateway, etc. This is my 2th computer I will make because I'm a freak .

1) My Case (water cooled): Koolance PC2-601BW

2) Motherboard and Processor: Something good for overclocking and P4 2.6- 3.0Ghz, board must be 13" x 12" or less (case).

3) Power Supply: A good power suppy able to handle a new powerful video card (I read about power failures with new video cards).

4) Video Card! I need tons of help on getting a good video card. There's so much to chose from! I'm a hardcore extreme to the max gamer person. I play all the latest games.

5) Sound Card: I've got a SB Audigy 2 Plat.

6) RAM: 1024DDR fine?

7) Windows Operating System: 98SE/Win2k/XP? I gotta be able to play CS!

A:New Comp Specs

Nice specs! Processor should be fine, have you considered an Athlon processor? The Opteron's should be available shortly!!

Antec and Enermax make good PSUs if you are looking.

I would wait with the video card; there are some good ones on the way, mainly NV35, which I would consider worth waiting for at the moment. Although if you can't wait, the ATi Radeon 9800 PRO is currently the fastest GPU on the market.

What speed RAM are you getting? This is very important! Try to get 1024 DDR PC2700 or more. Any less than this is not worthy of the rest of your components.

And finally, I would recommend Windows XP Pro. Having used all of your listed operating systems, I can say that XP is the most compatible and stable, closely followed by Win2K. A second choice to XP would be Windows 2000 Professional.

I hope you make the right choices for the rest of your hardware! Good Luck!

BTW, I would double check all of the components you buy are compatible with each other. Example - motherboard and video card: make sure that if you are getting an AGPx8 video card that your motherboard supports AGPx8 and so on.

Ok, I am a novice when it comes to hardware. I am looking for a something to Boost my gaming to the point where The Elder scrolls: Oblivion would run fine on my system. Right now everything is factory. So I am wondering what I need to increase my capabilities to that point, Which I stated earlier. I am willing to spend 150$ right now for upgrades, and need to know what I would need for the job. I wrote down my specs when I joined. I dont know if you can see them,but if you need them I will be happy to post them. I am thinking I need a very nice video card and more ram. But how much ram and what video card? And maybe a price on how much I would have to spend. I am taking all recommendations. In advance I appreciate the help and advice.


A:Gaming Specs

I cannot find any information or pics of your system at the instance, so I cannot say anything definite.
These two should be good for you: +
The 4670 will in a few weeks be replaced by 5650, which will perform the same or better, cost a little less and produce less heat, consume less power and have DirectX11 capability (which you don't need/can't even use for Oblivion, but it'll be good to have).
More RAM would help, too, but I really can't know what kind as I can't find any info on things. Please post back in this thread soon so that I get an subscription update and won't forget to get further into this when I have a bit more time.

I ordered a gaming PC about a year ago and now want to upgrade due to a faulty video card. This is what my PC would look like if I upgraded now;

motherboard: Msi 770-G45

CPU: AMD Phenom II x4 945

Ram/memory: 4 GB DDR3

Graphics card: Geforce GTX 260

PSU: hec XP1080 1080W Continuous @ 40°C ATX12V / EPS12V CrossFire & SLI NVIDIA HYBRID-SLI Certified Modular Active PFC Compatible with Core i7 Power Supply

So, are these parts all compatible, is my motherboard compatible with a directx 11 gpu? Please reply if they look compatible or not. Have a nice day!

Yes, insofar as motherboards aren't dependant upon which DirectX API the card is capable of utilising. Graphics card compatibility is dependant upon the slot interface the motherboard uses.
Your MSI board uses PCI-E graphics slot
GTX 260 uses PCI-E graphics slot
Match made in heaven

The GTX 260 isn't DirectX 11 capable, so why DX11 is an issue is a moot point.

CPU ? AMD Phenom II x4 Black Edition (AM3, 3.20GHZ, 8MB Total Cache), Operating SystemWindows 7 Home Premium (32bit), 4 GB Kingston DDR2 Ram, 500w Power Supply

500GB S-ATA 7200RPM Hard Drive, Sony Optiarc 24x SATA DVD Burner
X Blade Silver ATX casing, 2 x Akasa AK191SM fans and standard Heatsink and CPU fans

A:Help for specs on gaming PC

Drop down to a Phenom II X2 55x series CPU and get a more powerful video card instead. Also, what're the specs on the PSU? (brand and model number)

Lastly, I'd recommend the Cooler Master HAF 912 and the NZXT Beta EVO as better cases. Choose whatever fits your budget best, but the HAF 912 is the better of the two IMHO.

A:Upgrading to new PC! Need help on specs!

My first observation would be that unless you're into computers then I'd recommend either buying off the shelf or having it built. It's not that difficult anymore but from the way you stated your question I'd assume you aren't a PC geek.

The next thing is price, what's your maximum dollar amount for a new machine and do you need a new monitor too? The lowest cost system can be $300 dollars but won't satisfy you. Give us a limit, OK.

Anyone here know where I might find something like that?
I tryed googel'ing it, but I didn't find anything relevant.

One more thing, since I'm on the subject, does the power settings for "plugged in" affect the life span of the battery in any way?
I'm thinking, since you can use "Maximum Power Saving" on "Plugged in".

No, not that particular 430W PSU. I definately would not recommend it, unless of course you want your PSU to blow up one day. I suggest a Enermax PSU. You could probably even get by easily with a 350w Enermax PSU. I use one myself and have had no problems whatsoever. I'm not sure about the power requirements of the 9800 pro compared to the 9700 pro but I'm sure its not THAT much of a difference.

Although as far as the rest of the components your planning on putting in this system(s) I would say go for a Enermax 430w to be safe. Better safe than sorry.

I recently bought a new laptop, and although I am not upgrading it now, I would like to eventully get a RAM upgrade for it.

However, I don't know the bus speed of my current ram, and I definatly don't want to buy ram of a slower speed?

Is there a free program you know of that can generate this information?

That's free and will give you most of your system specs.

Looking at going to a LCD and what wondering what I should be paying attention to in the specs listed for monitors.

Would a Lower MS be better then a higher one. I do game most of the time and needs an idea what to look for.


A:Monitor specs

If you're a gamer, a lower MS is much better. You also want to go with a widescreen monitor. Generally a monitor with 5MS or lower is better for gaming.

I have provided a few links of monitors with low MS.

Niko NIKO-1920W Black 19" 2ms DVI Widescreen LCD Monitor - Retail

I am Craigslisting my brandnew pavillion 9000 which I paid 3,400 dollars for. I have the following problems

1. I did not get any lit. with the computer because it was a floor model

2) I lost the power cord in a recent move and it is out of power.

3. People at compusa ask like I am crazy when I call them and ask for the specs

4. These models start at 900 bucks, and I (and my customers) can't find one at the HP site or the compusa site for more than 2,200. That means this one is fully loaded, but I don't know exactly what it is loaded with cuz I can't get the ding-dong specs. Help please!

A:What can u say on the specs of this LAPTOP

For photoshop and basic everyday things like e-mail,spreadsheets,surfing the web,etc. it is more than enough. For gaming 3D, you are better off with a dual core with a dedicated graphics card. AMD Turion 64X2 or Intel C2D with ATI or Nvidia dedicated GPU and possibly a 7200rpm hard drive. Asus laptops are geared more toward gamers as are the Acer Ferrari series laptops. Alienware would be the best but are very expensive. Serious gaming is best done on quad core desktops since gaming laptop produce so much heat. I'm also not familiar with gaming on Linux. Gaming is best done on Windows XP.
