  1. Thanks for the milestone mentions, everyone. I do jump on here and the stats page every once in a while to check up on things. I know I don't post anymore but I'm still folding! Good to see some familiar faces still around here.
  2. Don't know if I qualify, but I did a couple thousand points of folding about a year or so ago. I finally got my home PC working and also have my work PC cranking out...moved up 20 places on the pit team in only a couple days. It feels good to fold.
  3. I've never needed to do this, but I think it's worth a try for those extreme cases. http://www.wikihow.com/Clean-a-Keyboard-in-a-Dishwasher
  4. If everything is pixelated, it's probably because it's satellite, not because of your video cables. Got a lot of trees around you?
  5. They give you a modem/router combo? I guess I missed that point...I would hate that.
  6. Just an FYI, my Netgear router (And I think most of them) allows me to put in my DynDNS account info - it will then update automatically for me. Then I just set up port forwarding on my router for whatever service I'm looking at.
  7. Ok, thanks Kram! As soon as I can sell another computer my wife's going to let me order the goods! I appreciate your help on this - I'll be sure to post some pics when it's all said and done. Edit: Here's what I'd like to do: * G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) Arctic Silver 5 Thermal Compound * Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 Wolfdale 3.0GHz 6MB L2 Cache * ZALMAN CNPS 9700 NT 110mm 2 Ball Ultra Quiet CPU Cooler * GIGABYTE GA-EP45-UD3P LGA 775 Intel P45 ATX Intel Motherboard * Western Digital Caviar Black WD5001AALS 500GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s XFX HD-485X-ZDFC Radeon HD 4850 1GB 256-
  8. Ok, that's probably what I'll go with. I've got another question (sorry, they keep coming to me as I look into this). What about going with a Quad Core [http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115057] instead of a Dual Core? I'd keep the price the same, but obviously have to downgrade on the clock speed. I made the plunge, though. I sold my old laptop, putting the iMac and other Laptop up for sale next. That, combined with the TV I sold should give me close to enough.
  9. I suppose that's true - would you say the 32MB cache would beat out a RAID 0 setup at 8MB cache? If one 500GB is roughly the same cost and going to be faster, then I imagine I'd go down that road.
  10. I don't mind ATI or nVidia, I just picked a card that got good reviews. I'm not exactly sure what Crossfire is, either. It seemed to me like I might not need it.
  11. I made a couple changes, which are easier to make when I have an example for compatibility comparison. See any downsides to the above setup with the following changes? I would run these in a RAID 0 config...I just simply don't need 500GB of space, so I figured I could save some money here. The only downside was the cache size decrease, I think. 2x 160GB 8MB Cache I didn't like the reviews on the other card, but this one seemed to be generally quiet and cool. Radeon HD 4850 1GB 256-bit No real reason for this switch other than the price difference. Sunbeam PSU Given the savin
  12. Thanks guys - that's helpful info. I hopped on Newegg last night and just put things together I thought would be nice (without worrying about compatibility) and my final price was spot on with yours, Kram. It's good to know what kind of cost I'm looking at and that my vague ideas match up properly.
  13. I'm thinking about putting together a new desktop computer soon, as all I have is a couple old laptops that are starting to fall behind. However, the last computer I built had Raid 0 with 2x 40Gb, 512MB ram, and something like an AMD 2500+. As you might guess, it's been a while and I'm quite out of the loop. I'm lacking in interest to re-learn what's hot and what's not, so I come for advice. I don't need to be able to overclock, and I don't need to score a billion points on 3DMark...I just want something that's going to be quite speedy. I do play games now and then, but it's things l
