    Or cease the opportunity, and buy yourself an ssd, use that as a boot drive and record to your hard drive. It would be the wisest thing to do.
    sorry to go off topic on this but it's "seize" not "cease" ;)

    "seize" means to capture "cease" means to stop.

    Don't buy HP they have a tendency to overheat.

    I'd suggest building your own, if you make a topic in the CST section with your budget, country, and what you plan on using it for, a few of them will be able to help you.

    posted a message on Minecraft, Rewritten In C++
    Quote from Sillen

    My theory is that he is a creative mind; he wanted the features of the game out quickly and did not care much for code organization and convention.
    pretty much, I think I read it on his blog, but he started minecraft as a hobby, and never thought it'd get as big as it did. so he never bothered with optimizations as he should have.

    but this is just a big citation war so who cares what i say?

    With only 2GB of RAM you will get maybe like five FPS. The card is fine, but since Minecraft is ran with Java it eats up CPU and requires a ton more RAM.
    RAM =! performance

    Minecraft allocates 512 MB by default IIRC, and java takes as much as it needs. 2GB is a little low on average, but it's fine depending on what he's planning to do

    OP: chrome doesn't like the link, what's your budget? does it have to be a laptop? building your own gives a lot better price to performance, and is incredibly easy

    I'll see about Defragging tonight, CCCleaner I'm not sure how to install without internet. I have no clue when the last update (if any) was installed on the computer. I don't believe it has internet access.

    interesting, I just ordered my GPU from there too.

    I did pay with my paypal account that's linked to my bank account though, so technically I didn't even use my card =P

    Use bandicam!!! fraps just lags!
    I hereby invoke the policy of don't know don't post.

    if you're lagging while recording, no matter what capture system you use, either you're computer isn't powerful enough, or you're doing it wrong.

    simple as that.

    posted a message on Halo 4 Disk Unreadable
    no one picked up/moved the xbox while the disk was in there did they? I've seen a video where a guy tilts it while it's reading a disk and it scratches it just like that, can't seem to find it though.

    posted a message on Hard drive died?
    checked the BIOS and it was set to check the USB ports before the HDD. and HDTune didn't turn up anything.

    so it's basically just user stupidity.

    although it's still a bit weird that it did it while the computer was asleep.

    I'm guessing you had installed Windows through a USB stick, and never changed the BIOS to load from HDD first?
    i installed it from a DVD, but I guess I missed that part of the BIOS, ill have to take another look when I get done with my last day of finals :)

    well...motherf-------- why didn't I think to do that before I made this...-_-

    anyway, backing up my important crap (read music folders) because I'm paranoid now...

    posted a message on Hard drive died?
    So I went to sleep last night with everything working fine, and woke up to my screen saying "Disk I/O error press any key to continue"

    seeing as it's a seagate barracuda, I'm pretty sure it's dead :\

    I'm just wondering if there's anything I can do before sending it out on warranty.
