A whole lot of people that had not been hit by this before. Being in war is always costing money, correct me if I'm wrong but has the US been NOT at war at any given time after WW2? Not world-wide war, no, but we weren't actually involved much in WW2 before Pearl Harbor. Vietnam actually lasted con...

And as for the bombs bursting in the air? That was us, in self-defense from oppression. It might be my personal erspective, but when you research the facts , it makes sense. Why use facts? Most down in DC ignore fact based evidence and information and go with anything that gives them a "Warm F...

The triple core is going to be slower. your losing 512 KB of cache. It makes a difference. The AMD Phenom II X2 545 Callisto would be a perfect choice because of the 6MB of level 3 cache at $87.99. With a motherboard I'm a big fan of the AMD 785G chipset. I used two of them on my daughters rigs. No...

However I do plan on getting a decent motherboard that should allow more upgrades: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103681 AMD Athlon II X2 250 Regor 3.0GHz 2 x 1MB L2 Cache Socket AM3 65W Dual-Core Pro...

Oh, and on your processor question, no. A 3ghz quad core does not operate at 12ghz. In order for that to happen, a single process or program would have to be utilizing all four cores as a single unit, and there's very few applications that can do that.

Ok Campers, (Yeah it's been a while) Getting the ol' tax refund in a day or two..and my 'new' build? It's not so new anymore LOL.

Our own MIS dept in the company I work for had to crack down again. Currently only company computers can email back and forth to each other. Anyone outside the now 'sealed' system (as verified by IP tracking--if it's not an exact match to each computer's own ID? It's auto-deleted and kicked back). A...
