This city is afraid of me. I have seen its true face. The streets are extended gutters and the gutters are full of blood and when the drains finally scab over, all the vermin will drown. The accumulated filth of all their sex and murder will foam up about their waists and all the whores and politicians will look up and shout 'Save us!'... and Gon's Balls will whisper 'First... comes... rock!' Hah!  Made you stare at Naruto's Marshmallow!  Pushing the logo off-center to drive TheOcean insane.

Fragmentation means nothing on NTFS WillPanto, upgrade that piece of crap.
Ahh, I didn't knew Microsoft had something like that. I just assumed the fragmentation would slow the processor down, and increase the work load it already has with vista. And I can't really upgrade it since it's my cousin's computer (the one have problems with vista), and my own computer is doing just fine, and if I was going to spend any money, I would build a new computer then upgrade my current machine.

A crap CPU will be the source of the terrible performance. My Pentium 4 630 was "sluggish" in Vista.

Just install XP on you "cousin's" computer.

Xp, or linux of he/she/really you is a cheap bastard and doesn't game. MOAR RAM helps a little in vista though.

4GB is the sweet spot, but 2GB is bearable.

I worked out my PC cost me about 470 + 200 for monitor. Headphones were 100, speakers were 40.

8 GB is awesome
4 GB is good
3 GB is bare bones
2 GB is a 2 min boot time
and 1 GB is NO VISTA FOR YOU

Well, no. 8GB can cause a decrease in performance in quite a few cases, which is why I don't have 8GB.

What make is your 2000W PSU klokwerk?

It's large an sits outside the case, but it runs damn well.

I do, but not on the computer currently. I plan to take a few more better pictures with something besides the crap camera in my phone after I finish fixing the liquid cooling. Thermaltake pumps are CRAP.

I used a customised one of these for a while for liquid cooling but I ended up selling it to pay rent. It worked wonders but it was pretty loud though.

She's not much into computers or gaming, and her brother should be able to help with something like that.


@speedlolita: AMD is a good company, who make a solid product. In tests, AMD will out perform Intel even when Intels are faster. because AMD chipsets are more efficient when it comes to multitasking.

No they do not. This was the case back in 2003 but it isn't now. Yes they're solid products but they don't outperform Intel.

Ditto, good parts for the price but Intel is 20 times better.
