yet another thing to add to the list...

i noticed that office max was practically giving away RAM today, so i went with my dad to pick up a 256 chip (pc-133), not because i need it, but because i figured it was a sin not to get it (for 20 bucks, it's just screaming at you to get it ). of course, it wound up that they sold me a 128 MB chip which wouldn't even boot (well, XP crashed and restarted when it tried to boot, didn't try linux cause if i can't use XP i can't do half the stuff i need to on my computer). then we called up office max, and of course, they told me and my dad that we put it in wrong , so yeah, i'm going back tomorrow to yell at them and get my correct merchandise . one of my friend told me to sue them though, and that could be interesting...

What type of machine are you using? They COULD have sold you a high density stick which won't work.

My current collage computer is a Powerbook G4 w/ ComboDrive. SuperDrive only writes at 1x so I'll just buy a perephial one. It'll run at 1ghz (ahahahahah!!!!) and have every great game on the Mac on it.

i have an athlon 800 Mhz chip, not sure of the mother board, and a 64 and 256 chip currently in the computer. i doubt it's high density either, because it was only 20 bucks. then again, i may be wrong. but it doesn't matter anyways, cause they gave me a chip that is sold as 256, but really only 128.

What type of chipset is the board? via?

i want 5.1, I only have 2.1 (the isub was hiding, not sure in that pic.

done the same route before, why not, but here are some words of advice:

1. Avoid the athlons, they are better value + faster, but are broken easily during install.

2. get the highest motherboard bandwidth you can afford.

But this is stuff you probably already know.

Why not get a 22" monitor like mine? hehe, and no I'm not rich, I worked a LOT to get that setup!

i used to know, but then i haven't fiddled with it in a while, so i don't even know any more . i'll find out when i boot tomorrow i guess (yes, it's too hard to take off the cover and look). one strange thign that i think about now, when put the chip in the first time, it booted up fine, but it had my two others in it too, so i think it may have used them, but it did say 480 or so (i forget the exact number) MB of RAM. it was only when i was using the chip by itself did it not boot. oh well, sleep time for me .

If I could actually get to Klipsch's site, I'd show you the coolest freaking speakers ever (It keeps getting stuck...it's probably just my DSL)

And the AMD's _physically_ break? I had never heard of that happening. *shrug* I think I'll still buy AMD. If I break one, hey...I can just go buy another one and most likely spend less than if I had bought one P4

A 22" monitor!? That must have cost $1000! I don't have _that_ much money I think I'll be happy with a 17" display. If I want something bigger, I'll just buy another one and have a dual monitor display.

http://www.klipsch.com/images/produc.../568_large.jpg

There...I finally got to their site *drool* Only $500. I think I'll wait for a sale (or for one to fall off a truck )

Probably right with the AMD, true, and I've seen klipsch speakers (I am contemplating buying a set).

The 22" cost $2499. www.apple.com/displays.

Holy crap. You're monitor is probably going to be worth more than my entire computer! (I figured this out in my head...no clue if the figures are right... $300 mobo/proc, $200 hard drive, $250 dvd burner, $150 soundcard, $100 case/ps, $300 graphics, $100 nic card and other internal stuff, $500 display, $500 speakers, $150 printer..total that up...and...uhh...*counts fingers* $2550 if I added correctly...) I think I'll pass up an Apple display. 17" NEC/Mitsu's are very nice (and a taaad bit cheaper)
