    A survey: What is correct:

    Here is THE answer. Windows expects square pixels. The correct resoutions IS one tha corresponds to the aspect of your display. 5:4 1280x1024 - Many newer LCD panels in 17" and 19" models 4:3 - 1280x960 - standard CRT monitor 16:10 - 1280x800 - widescreen CRT or LCD monitor 16:9 - 1280x720 - widescreen HD resolution There are 4:3 LCD panels that use a native resolution of 1280x1024, and they squish desktop icons.
  3. Anybody know of any shops shipping to the US with the new 74gb drive?

    i-RAM - changing my mind

    well the big thing here is the PCI bus becomes your main limitation. The thing maxes out around 120MB/s where as many SATA controllers are integrated into the chipset and have direct access to the CPU/memory buses mean multiple HD can concurrently use > 120MB/s. The iRam is undoubtly your fastest solution for storage, unless you go to a multidisc array on something better that 32bit 33mhz PCI.
  6. I'm not 100% sure on this. But unless you boot with PAE isn't 4GB the total max that you can use? meaning these days if you want to set it and forget it shouldn' you just use 4GB - physical ram as your min and max pagefile size?
  7. Anybody know if the 36gb or 74gb drives are going to get NCQ and the 16mb cache anytime soon? The new 150gb raptor out perfoms the old ones by a measurable amount but I don't paticularly want to pop $300 for a 150GB drive as I have plenty of storage on the network, I just want a wicked fast system/game disk.
