Re: Ram Supported Frequency

Well... I have been using computers for a LONG time... But I have never really looked into technical details, I always had my brother who understood a bit more to give me advice when I mounted my own "gaming" PC, and I didn't change frequencies or overclock anything, but I can still assemble a deskt...

Economic and Legal issues aside - and the fact that a good movie director deserves his cut - However which way you go, whether by credit card or bandwidth, You're paying for your download.

Re: 30 Min Delay

Wow... If I had something like that... I would have certainly have formatted the heck out of it... (I've formatted for less, many times because I thought I had a virus, but really didn't even have one, also because my USB were crazy, wouldn't recognize my mouse on certain ports...) I think you can p...

Ram Supported Frequency
