4: 64bit OS. Just do it. Don't sweat compatibility issues, you're not likely to have any. 32bit is OVER. biggrin

Atomic


If you are going > 4gb ram you HAVE to go 64bit OS to use that additional ram.

Have a look at the AMD A10 cpu, quad core with Radeon 7660 graphics built in for ~$129 and the AM3+ mobos are pretty cheap too.

One word of advice, wherever you get it from, get a SSD, single biggest performance boost I've ever seen as an upgrade. Actually just put one in a pc my son uses that was build back in 2006 that has a AMD opteron 185 with only 2gb of ram and its made a huge performance difference.

Well decided windows phones just weren't my cup of tea. Took it back today and got a Galaxy S3.
329  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [WP8] Windows Phone 8 Thread on: November 27, 2012, 12:35:04 AM
I dont think so as they dont get pulled in on my iPhone 4 to the wrong thread (which I kept) and can access corp email via wifi. I was going to try on my daughters Galaxy S2 but when  I set up my corp email on her phone it was going to enforce all kinds if restrictions on the phone so I cancelled.

Ok, so after living with this thing for the last week, the one thing I'm not digging is the email client, esp on my corp exchange account. It sometimes pulls an email into a thread that doesnt belong.
331  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [WP8] Windows Phone 8 Thread - Nokia and MS reveal new stuff today! on: November 19, 2012, 09:59:15 PM
Wow... Last night phone was on full charge and I didnt have the battery saver thing on to idle background processes if battery gets low and it was dead by 4:30AM.... I'm pretty sure I know what did it tho as my daughter had been fiddling with it and left several apps / games open (didnt use <- to exit them).

Update: After changing some settings it lasted nearly 48 hours on a single charge.
332  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [WP8] Windows Phone 8 Thread - Nokia and MS reveal new stuff today! on: November 18, 2012, 05:32:35 AM
I wouldnt have been able to use amazon as I used the upgrade that was on my sons line and that thing you have to agree to when getting a subsidized phone from them prevents you from moving the phone to a diff number or making plan changes for a period of time or they can charge you a hefty fee if the carrier reports it back to them.
333  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [WP8] Windows Phone 8 Thread - Nokia and MS reveal new stuff today! on: November 18, 2012, 02:28:49 AM
Picked up a black 920 today. It was extremely easy to get all my contacts over from my iPhone. There is a Nokia app that pulls them  all over via bluetooth. Nice phone but damn after having used an iphone since 07-08 its all so alien, it'll def take me a while to figure everything out. Probably gonna keep my iP4 and use it as a ipod / game player since I already have a ton of games for it. I do like the neat XBL integration in the new phone.
334  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [WP8] Windows Phone 8 Thread - Nokia and MS reveal new stuff today! on: November 14, 2012, 10:28:11 PM
Called a few days ago and my local ATT corp store didnt have a display model. Called just now and they do.... Gonna go have a look at one tomorrow. Next phone is gonna be the 920 or a Galaxy S3, just getting tired of the iPhone craze lol.
335  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [WP8] Windows Phone 8 Thread - Nokia and MS reveal new stuff today! on: November 14, 2012, 09:32:04 PM
So after dissing windows phones and now having seen reviews / previews of the Nokia 920 I''m quite interested given my last 3 phones were iPhones and my lackluster interest in the iPhone5... Aren't these supposed to be in ATT stores this Friday?
336  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (11/05) on: November 05, 2012, 01:08:41 PM
Halo4!

I assume Forward unto Dawn is the movie thats going to come as part of the collectors edition, correct? Actually pretty pumped for this, even re upped my live sub.
338  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (10/29) on: October 29, 2012, 08:31:30 PM
Nada. My next purchase wont come till Halo 4 hits.

that's my big worry, that it won't fit on my pants or jeans pockets.  during the summer it won't be an issue because I wear shorts all the time with big enough pockets.

Yeah she allways puts hers in her back pocket so no way its fittin unless she grows a massive trunk lol.

Purge, bad thing is I've never been impressed or liked the Metro UI be it on windows, xbox or phone.... I'm betting MS crashes and burns with the whole thing PC, tablet & phone. And hell how is Nokia still in business, haven't had one of their phone since before the age of color screens.

first time I saw the Note I thought it was too big, but then I picked it up and discovered my hands are the right size for it.

Heh. My daughter had seen it on TV and on the web and was like OMG I WANT IT until she saw it IRL and it wouldnt fit in her pocket.

personally I'm waiting for this bad boy.  no definite pricing yet, but I figure I'll get the 16gig model, splurge on a 64 gig memory card, and enjoy the 5.5 inch screen.

I saw the Note in the ATT store and its just WAY to big for a phone... That damn thing is a mini tablet lol.

You'll need this for it
343  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Dilemma with new phone on: October 16, 2012, 08:50:51 PM
Yeah my 16gb iPhone4 is almost allways full and having to swap stuff out, so extra mem space would be really nice. Heck I had to delete stuff to even update to iOS6 lol.

Quote from: McNutt on October 16, 2012, 04:16:54 PM

I bought the HTC One X a couple of weeks ago and it is amazing.  The camera is awesome and the ability to take burst shots makes catching a good shot of the kids much easier.  It also has a screen that I can clearly see in bright sunlight.  My Samsung Galaxy S (first generation) would wash out in the sun.

I would not buy a new phone that does not have 4G LTE.  The difference is night and day.

Yeah I've looked at the One X and it looks nice, but the killer for it is no mem card slot.
345  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Dilemma with new phone on: October 16, 2012, 03:55:18 PM
I'd also like to hear user opinions on iPhone vs Android as I an contemplating replacing my iPhone 4 with a Galaxy SIII.

Whoever came up with split up seasons should be dragged out into the desert and pistol whipped and left to walk back.... Pisses me off that I paid up front for the entire season because we had Dish at the time... Bunch of lazy greedy fucks.
348  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Let's talk Iphone on: September 05, 2012, 10:50:46 PM
I think I'll just stick with my iPhone 4 which is out of contract in Dec and switch mine and my wifes 3gs to straightalk and the kids non smartphones to tmobile, pay $30 less a month and have unlimited text / minutes / data (except kids who dont use data). The kids had been wanting smartphones and I had thought about handing down mine and the wifes and getting us new ones until I saw the pricing on the ATT shared plans... What a f'n rip off.

We adopted a dog (first one for us) from the animal shelter in June and its been really dry around since then so it been no trouble taking her out to do her business. The remnants of hurricane Issac are gonna dump some pretty constant rain on us the next couple of days, so what do you do with them when it rains for a couple of days straight??

I'm pretty pleased with it so far on my 2010 MBP, it fixed some graphical corruption issues in VMWare Fusion that had dogged me since upgrading to Lion last summer. Havent installed on my hacintosh yet, gonna wait till I get one of the new nVidia 660 TI's which have native support in ML.
