How often do you change CPU, GPU and so on mitu? horgen123
Normally every 2+ years or so.

No AM3+?

In most benchmarks the 8150 is worse than the i5-2500k, plus my bros can have my AM3+.

 

I had some hopes for this new line. Too bad. Looks like AMD will never catch up with Intel

It's impossible now seeing how even Piledriver is said to be only 10-20% faster than Bulldozer, and then Ivy Bridge comes out in the spring and is 20% faster than Sandy Bridge.

I remembered when AMD kicked Intel's ass back in the day until 2006 when Core 2 Duo was made and since then Intel just got better.

What I said is basic knowledge and is extremely vital when knowing the cpu brand you have, when it comes to upgrades or checking what you got you must know this for applications and gaming.

Knowing about the cpu is so simple, since when you buy a PC you'll either see Intel or AMD. Compared to other components it's the simplest thing, hell, you'll see freaking logos under the keyboard on laptops.

My cpu gets a little hot when I play new vegas. . . I had to move it to another room, I know it can get a little hot in the room I had it in but still. . . it was never a problem. And just to be sure I had everything taken care of, I added an extra fan.

Can't wait to build mine. Hopefully I'll have info soon on when I can start ordering the parts/

Yeah, but which Intel is a good one and which ones isn't is harder to know.

Google helps with that, or mitu might know about that too.

If I was a master hacker, I bet I'd instantly be smarter than the devs here, and manage to hack this site's coding to make the current bugs here non-existent. Another bug is you're unable to delete threads if other users have already posted in them. BullSh!t.

Simple: Right Click My Computer, and then click Properties, and the type of cpu is listed. I knew this when I was 12, lol.

Then what's the problem?

I meant as in what is a good Intel processor, what is a bad one? That knowledge I don't have, and I don't think I will get it either since you have update it so many times through a year

You don't have to keep updating it - just get something respectable and you'll be set for a few years. The Core 2 Quad processor I have is a bit dated now, but it has been serving me well for quite a while.

I wonder how do you Rick Rolls? :P Still probably against the ToU to post those links though.
#226 Posted by mitu123 (153911 posts) -

I think he meant updating as to know each cpu every year as in what comes out and is better.

If he meant updating as in upgrading hardware every year which I doubt, then lol, only if you get cheap hardware, expensive ones do last for years. If i had 2 GTX 570s I wouldn't upgrade for years.

Haha now that I read it again I can see that he probably meant updating knowledge rather than hardware.

Is even mentioning the word Rick Roll a violation of the ToU though? :o I hope not. Shouldn't be bad as long as I'm not providing a link to it as it is a virus, can't ever X of out of it and requires computer shutdown.

Mentioning rickrolling is not a violation, but posting such links is still considered disruptive because of the misleading nature of rickrolling, so don't do it.

Its quite fortunate my laptop's hard drive has still held out for more than a year and a half. Much better than the last hard drive that got replaced in the beginning of July 2010, it broke down only about 6 months since I first got my red laptop I'm using now, which was probably around Christmas 2009. the repair man who replaced my hard drive said that models made around December 2009 weren't that good, a lot of reports were made that the hard drive broke down rather quickly, or the keyboard got disabled where you couldn't type anything at all.

That doesn't help for hard drives, there are many ways to identify hard drives, using Speccy, a program, is one of them.

At least you have Windows 7 and an Intel laptop.
