    Good Morning All, My In-laws had an issue with spyware that had heavily infected their computer. I tried to clean it up, but in the end the best thing I found was to reinstall Windows XP Home. I made a backup of the entire hard drive prior to wiping it and reinstalling. I went ahead and...

    Outlook Group Calendar

    32bit or 64bit?

    Honestly, It really all depends on what software will run under which OS. Your Core 2 Duo is 64 bit supported, so the OS will run on that processor. 64Bit vista is more secure and really shines when you have 4gig+ of RAM. On the other hand, it all depends on whether or not your apps...

    Building A New Gaming Rig (Intel Core 2 Duo)

    Right, I heard that the Quads would be released by Intel in November. I figured that the Core 2 Duo's would come down in price then, but I don't know this for sure. I was curious on thoughts, if they will be released early or late November. I am doing some looking, but what would you be...

    I changed the board at the last minute and forgot to check the RAM, thanks for the catch. So I want the best processor that we can afford, what would you recommend? I have had good experience with EPOX boards so I am not against changing. What would you say about this processor and board? I...

    Building a Budget Gaming Rig

    Thanks for the input. The user will ONLY be using the machine for gaming, he does everything else on his Mac, oh yeah and it will be used for testing web pages. Not sure if the computer will have enough speed for that. LOL.. So the 160GB H.D. will be more than enough for him. He has an...
