What model is what? Kinda vauge there. ;

I'm not sure what my plans are for the hard drive, I just know it's slow and kinda small. I had to sacrifice somewhere for now, and it sure wasn't going to be on the processor.

Mine is a Dimension 2350... (I don't like it because of the 128 MB of memory.)

I somewhat enjoy staying with a 40 GB hard drive. It's somewhat enough for me.

Oh, right. Thought you meant model of the hard drive. ;

I know it's a generation 2 Dimension XPS, here's a link to it's picture and such. I upgraded from the basics it says, and no monitor of course.

The Australian Personal Computer magazine customer servey shows:
Dell is the most popular computing brand.
Apple has gotten the largest reliability rating for the PCs and Servers.

My school not to recently got some Optimas. They're faster than the bad old Compucons that run Windows NT 4... The Optimas feature Windows 2000 Professional (they used to have XP).

Well, I may get a new laptop this year... Well... I tell you more infomation about it, I am sure it's better than my desktop computer that I am currently using.. (it's a cheap one.... I can't do much with it... lol.)

Anyway, I installed Windows 2000 on my vmWare and It was faster instead of the one I installed on Virtual PC 8 months ago... ..

Hey, Shining Arcanine. Could you describe your case or post a picture? I'm curious. ; What did you say was the cooling on yours?

The cooling and power parts are going to be replaced this Christmas. I didn't have the funds to get anything other than what I had when I build it. ;;

Here is a link to the listing on the site where I brought my PC's case:

http://compuplus.com/insidepage.php3...nka&id=1000057

Edit: Here are the upgrades I am planning for my computer in the order that I plan to do them:

1. Power and Cooling Parts.

2. 2 72GB Raptor Hard Drives in a RAID 0 Config

3. Smart Display LCD Monitor (I orignally wanted a 3D OLED Smart Display but none of those 3 technologies have been combined so I will have to settle, ;; ), new speakers, mouse, keyboard.

4. New Scanner to replace the one that failed last summer.

I can't think of any other upgrades to plan for. The parts inside my computer could probably stand an upgrade in 2.5 years but I doubt I will do it considering that I don't need more speed.

Shingo, that RAID setup must be pretty small. You are limited to 8.6GB in it due to the way striping works. How do you bare it?

Intel has never made a dual CPU motherboard where both CPUs can have different clockspeeds. How did you pull it off?

Also, you must have a super cooling solution since the heat generated by those CPUs alone should be enough to fry every component in your system. What do you use to cool them?

What are your memory settings in the basic input/output system on your computer?

Also, how loud is your GeForce 5800. I hear it is comparable to a vaccum cleaner or a jet engine but never have been able to find someone with that part to ask about it.

The current builds are pre-alpha so you shouldn't install them. Wait until 2005/2006 for Longhorn to come out.

For one thing, Windows has to have a RAID driver. Another thing is that every other cluster is added to the virtual drive. Since the 4.3GB drive will run out of clusters before the 120GB one will, you will only get 8.6GB out of it. You should know that having done a RAID 0 with them.

Another thing that you should know that I stated in my previous post that your computer's configuration is impossible to obtain simply because... It is not possible to have dual P4 processors clocked higher than any P4 on the market operating at different clocks in a computer even if you overclock them. Therefore you are lying.

Wow, you have an LS-120 Drive too? Do you know that they are now refered to as SuperDisks. lol I wish Imation didn't discontinue them... Considering my drive doesn't read its own disks anymore and I can't find a replacement at CompUSA (too lazy to search the net ATM).

Look into installing Windows XP on your desktop and laptop. Perhaps Windows Embedded 2003 on your PDA. You shouldn't be disappointed.

I took the 4.3 out. Forgot to mention that earlier. I added a new 120GB from Maxtor and a 120 from WD. Also, my motherboard has Firewire-800 support and SATA in its logic (hehe, faster than IDE/EIDE/SCSI!)
