Re: XP or Vista?

Re: quad or dual?!

Why do you say that? You'd be surprised how far some of those chips with lower multipliers can go as far as overclocking goes, I guess you don't remember the E63xx. The Q9450 and Q9550 use a 8x and 8.5x multiplier which isn't bad. Q9300 isn't bad but I don't really like the 7.5x multiplier. The sto...

My favourite DVD burner brand is NEC.From my knowledge,LITE-ONs are good scanners,but no so good burners.

Re: quad or dual?!

I guess the best cpu on the market,that has unlocked multiplier remains the QX9650,no matter what.The quads that will be released will have a very low multi and will not be able to reach even 4ghz,even if they are cool enough

Re: Upgrade CPU or GPU!

I agree too that the best deal is to get a better video card,instead of the current one.You will have a much higher performance increase than upgrading the CPU,because those dual-core speeds are very,very good for todays' applications.

Re: DVD RW drive doesn't read dvds, not recognized by XP Pro?

Some drives fail like that.I checked a lot on other forums where people said the dvd drive started not to recognise CDs or DVDs.The best way to get rid of the problem is to RMA it
