I just want to say thanx to all of you here at Tom's Hardware. All of you have been so nice and kind to me. The only thing that I dislike is having to select a best answer. So PLEASE, no one get mad because all the answers are the best. Every tidbit of info is helpful in one way or another. Eventually everyone who has replied to me will be selected as best answer. I just got up so if i have forgotten to thank you please forgive me. A special thanks goes to mousemonkey for telling me where and what PM means and a very special thanx goes to Mr. Rick. For those who don't know yet, Mr. Rick is sending me the parts to get my MSI mother board up and running. I have never had so many people that has wanted to help me like this before. For those who offered to help also gets a special thanx, like raidinn, ohmybad, uncle jimmy, ( I'm sorry can't remember the other names right now), and all the other, you know who you are. Okay I went back to my thread and got the other names. Thanx to Refillable and 474545b for telling me NOT to put my address and email in regular post. thank you 474545b for wanting to get the prts for me. Thanx goes out to sunius, scout_03, quilciri, bystander, and energy96 :bounce:

I will bet everybody that you listed are not on here to be selected as best answers or I should feel that they arn't. Because I don't care if I get chosen the best answer. I am on here to offer help.

I am not the most knowledgeable person infact I am still learning things on here eveyday from people like you and the ones you gave credit to. So If I ever help you in the fucture and you selected someone else it would not affend me.

My reward is if I was able in helping the person fix there problem. That is why I am on here. I do hope all the people who have helped you will read your thread and it should make them proud. Cheers.

DM186 that was really nice for you to say and that is why I love to get on Tom's Hardware because of the people here. If you have noticed my avatar it is a flaming phoenix. I may not be able to walk but because of people like you and others here I am able to fly to new heights. My freind J... and her husband D.... took me to golden corral today for Mother's Day {however i am not a mom} and even gave me a present. It is the 8th Edition of computer concepts and it even has a cd-rom with it!! Now I have something i can read and learn from. It was their 12yr old daughter whom i built a lowend gateway for last year. It has a 1.33ghz cpu, 80gig hdd, and cd burner. it wasn't nothing special or great but A... LOVES it and thanx me every time she is around. since have have no sibling she is the only niece i have. Since we both have skype we video chat at least once a day. Again you are most kind SIR DM186 :hello:

scout-03 until i found this site i didn't socialize. I don't use facebook, myspace, or even yearbook because there is always someone on there starting some type of drama. I love this site because of all the people here. they have the same interests as i do. Iknow, i know being a pc geek isn't a girlie thing but without my pc to shop for clothes or anything else I don't know what i would do. if it wasn't for my nurse and my friend J... i would not even have food in the house they do all my grocery shopping they will not let me go with them (they're not being mean) because they know that i will buy food that I am not suppose to have. So I don't complain too much (haha), Sir are you in any way of French descent? The reason i ask is because of the Merci a toi at the end of your reply i think it's french but if i am wrong please forgive me and if you don't mind would you please tell me what it means. I do have a qusetion for you. Would you mind telling now to get to my PMs. I had to save an email from Mr. Rick to get back to them. Thank you for your kind words and may you have a very prospers life

The day i posted about the graphic card i was literally in tears. A dell tech had told me that ws the card i needed and when it didn't work i contacted via pc and they either couldn't or wouldn't help. that is when i went to this site and the people here was so nice and was really trying to help. Well to make a long story short everyone, just by their kindness and honest replies made me feel better. sure $ 13.80 isn't a lot but it was money that i really couldn't afford and the whole time i was typing i was crying (you know thats a girl thing haha), so now i have decided that i will never own another product by dell not even a keyboard since they evidently don't know what they are talking about. I was ready to give up but the people here gave me the strenght to keep on keeping on. JUST in case you didn't know Mr. Rick is sending me a 7750 black edition AMD cpu for my new msi mobo and some other parts un fact a whole pc except for the case. The reason he is doing that is cause i was going to gave a friend this dell when i got the MSI up and running, Guess he feels by dell like i do lol. i don't know a lot but if i can ever help you with info or parts i am more than willing to do so. I LOVE THIS SITE :love:

Well you found a friend here and it goes both ways and you take care and we will see you around on here. All you have to do is look us all up and send a personal message to any of us.

Mr. Rick sounds like a very nice man. People like him are very scarce. Good luck to you.

Mr. Rick is actually here on Tom's Hardware. if ima not mistaken his user name is rick_criswell. Thanx for being a friend. don't take tyhis the wrong way i have a very big heart and i love everyone even those who take advantage of me. I look at it this way what goes around comes around. i had Pm Mr. Rick me shipping address abd gave him my email address and i haven't heard anything else from him. Well he did pm me and said he had all the info he needed so he is probably just gonna ship me the parts. I guess i will send him another PM if i can find out how to get to my PMs. Just remember you have a friend here in the great southern state of Georgia and if i van ever be of any help please let me know. The MSI mobo already has 4gig ram I only have pata hdds but there is also 2 sata sockets. I have read the docs and it says to hook the primary drive to the IDE cable, And what is a pc-e1 socket for. I am really excite bout having a better pc the AMD 7750 black edition is a 2.7ghz cpu which with the 4gig ram will roughly be 65 to 70% faster than the system ima using now. I noticed your system specs sound like you have a superior system. I am happy for you. This smilley face kinda shows how gaga i am about get the new pc :pt1cable:

Thanx you. Once i get the new pc up I will probably want to save up and add a sound card and a graphic card.If you can tell me which ones will be best for the lowest price ( will habe to save up for them). Here are the specs for the MSI mobo specs. Mobo # is K9N6PGM2 design based on the MCP(P)62/MCP(S)61/MCP(V)61 chipset. It has 1 PC_E1 SOCKET, 1PC_E2 SOCKET, 1 FDD SOCKET, 2 SATA SOCKETS, and 1 IDE socket dual channel. it has 4gig ram, and will have a 7759 am2 cpu @ 2.7ghz. The reason i am asking i have the following games which i cannot play now; BLOOD RAYNE, ELDERS SCROLLS, DAGGERDALE, AMNESIA, WITCHS AND VAMPIRES, PRINCE OF PERSIA SANDS OF TIME, AND BALDURS GATE. If these games will play and sound okay without the above please let me know

This mobo that I am talking about was given to me by a local friend. Since I have the docs on it I can tell you what chipset it is using. The Nvidia mcp(p)61/mcp(s)61/mcp(v)61. I have an ati x700 vid card but doc says it will not work, also have a Radeon hd3650 8x agp with 1gig ddr2 mem( no agp slot on this mobo) Rick is sending me an asus mobo w/ intel p3. That is for a friend he doesn't want my friend to have to deal with this dell
