a) You might not actually have 4gb of RAM installed on your motherboard
b) Windows 32bit is actually more 3.2gb rather than 4gb in terms of detecting RAM.

Default Re: PC Questions Thread

I'm getting a new video card because my GeForce 8500GT VRAM became corrupt (overheated), and I'm on a budget. Preferably less than $120 CAD. I was looking at these two:

http://ncix.com/products/index.php?sku=48801 (though I would prefer never to buy NVidia again)
http://ncix.com/products/index.php?sku=40867

I'm not sure which of those two I should choose (if I should choose those two). I generally don't play very demanding games (I have my 360 for that). Usually GTA SA, Fallout 3, Sims 2/3, etc. What would you guys recommend?

Thanks.

I have a dual core (E2140) with 250W power supply and a simple fan.

It was stock 1,6Ghz and I've clocked it to 2,0 ghz, CORE TEMP tells me it reaches a maximum of 50~55C, should I be worried?

I also run a desktop fan under my desk cus' it gets quite hot in my room (I keep the windows closed because it gets cold outside lol).

I has another question that I've wanted to ask for a while.

Can you overclock RAM? if so can you tell me what that does & what bad can happen?
And a tutorial (doesn't have to be from you lol)

Cheerzz

Which video card is better?


* ATI Radeon HD 3200
* Nvidia Geforce 6100 nForce 405

I don't know how to compare due to the different brand names. Thanks :P

No, 55c is actually a good level. When it reaches over 65 then you should worry.

Yes, and I don't understand why either. It said I "Linked the inappropriate sites" but I don't ever remember doing so. If any admin could PM me, please do so. I just want to know why I was banned.
